"Doug is an extremely good realtor who knows this business. We had a situation with the sale of our parent’s property that had many unusual twists and turns during the selling process (including covid and probate) but he was extremely professional and very easy to work with. He kept us updated with any new issues, followed thru on all items that a realtor should be doing and I highly recommend him if you are looking to sell your house."

“Doug is very pleasant to work with. He guided me thru the listing and sale of my house. I would recommend him to anyone who want to hire a realtor.”
Seller, January 2022
Doug advised us during the process of converting our multi-family home to condos and selling one of the units. He is knowledgeable and pleasant to work with. He provided lots of helpful information up front and answered all our questions during the process. He gives real advice and feedback throughout the process and is a true advisor. One of the best parts of working with Doug is the high level of detailed service he provides. He made specific recommendations for simple improvements we could do to make our property more attractive. I really appreciated that he handled special appointments such as the fire inspection and assessment for us. It made it so easy for us. He treated our property with care and respect, making sure it was secure and properly managed during and after showings.

Doug made the process of finding a new place to live manageable by being kind and supportive while we were unsure and hesitant. He always knew how to guide us with his knowledge of the market and expertise in how to present an offer. I always felt like Doug was able to give us the right advise at the right moment as we were confronted with one decision after another. I am grateful that we had Doug working with us to find this new home.
Buyer, July 2021
Doug was the best agent we could have asked for in the tough buyer's market. He was able to impart information on us and guide us every step of the way. Doug stuck by us through numerous offer attempts and his expertise helped us craft the offer that finally won us our home. ‘

"My wife and I recently purchased our second home and sold our first home, both in Framingham. Doug's help was critical at every step along the way. He gladly met with us long before we were ready to buy to learn who we were and what we value, attended many home viewings with us while we refined what we were looking for in a home, analyzed comparable home so we could make informed offers, and monitored and managed all the interactions between the involved parties. Thanks to Doug we were successful in purchasing the home of our dreams (seriously, I cannot imagine a more fitting place for us to live) well within our means. I really appreciate that Doug never gave us the least sense that he was losing patience with us, and never tried to coerce us at all! He has consistently worked towards our best interests. For instance, in this extremely competitive market, where the homes we were interested in were getting over a dozen offers each, Doug could easily have advised us to make as large an offer as we could afford. He would have been quite right to point out the number of rejected offers we had already made and ask how much longer we wanted to do this. Doug never said anything like that! Instead, he respected that we did NOT want to contribute to the hysteria driving home prices up and gave us solid market-based evidence to help us judge what each home was really worth. What's more, Doug directed us to the well written articles he has authored on how to help our offers stand out. It worked! You'll notice if you look at any of Doug's listings that presentation is paramount with him. He is very personal and approachable while still being manifestly professional in everything he does. He puts lots of care into the materials he produces to promote homes and they come out beautiful. The video and photos he produced of our old home were so appealing they made me wonder if I should move back in! Even the reports on comparable homes Doug provided us were very polished and thorough. Even as gracious as Doug is with his clients, Doug obviously still holds himself to the highest standards of professionalism and excellence. Doug also was willing to give me valuable advice on what defects in my old home were worth correcting as opposed to things a typical buyer is happy to overlook. He guided is through putting the home's "best foot" forward while still being completely transparent and honest with potential buyers about the condition of our old home. And when it came time to select one of the offers people had made on our home, Doug walked us through the strengths and weaknesses of each offer. My wife and I are confident that we made good decisions at every step of this process, thanks almost entirely to the guidance and help of Doug McNeilly."
Buyer, June 2021
"My girlfriend and I have been working with Doug to find a home just outside of Boston since January of 2021. It was arguably the most difficult real estate market for buyers in years, and Doug was able to provide an immense amount of industry knowledge and expertise in order to shepherd us through the process. He's thoughtful, responsive, patient, and has the proper skillset to make the home buying process seamless for clients. I highly recommend Doug to anyone looking to sell or purchase a home as I know we'll be working with him for years to come."
Buyer, June 2021
We were first time home buyers in a crazy market + Doug was extremely knowledgeable, thorough, and communicative. We felt he always had our best interests at heart. He was a pleasure to work with and never missed a beat!

"It is with much gratitude and admiration for Doug McNeilly of Coldwell Banker Realty that I share my five-star across-the-board review. Doug successfully represented and guided me with the smooth and profitable sale of my home in Wayland, MA. It would not have been possible without Doug. He brought his stellar character, extensive broker experience, and business savvy, making the sale of my condo, a very positive experience for me. Doug also leveraged his Wayland, Weston, Sudbury, and Natick market intelligence, positive reputation, and favorable relationships with other real estate brokers and vendors. He went above and beyond with due diligence across markets. Doug is the least self-serving professional that I have ever engaged for real estate and business transactions. At every step and with every decision, Doug clearly communicated and helped me understand and weigh my options. He is most conscientious, incredibly responsive, resourceful, and respectful. I highly recommend that you consult Doug McNeill and consider Doug representing you with the sale of your property and home. You will be more than satisfied and move forward with peace of mind."
Buyer, April 2020
Doug McNeilly was an exceptional realtor! My spouse and I were initially unsure what exactly we were looking for during the buying process and Doug, with knowledge and expertise, helped us better understand and navigate the entire process. I was also very impressed by his thoroughness once we made our final selection. He went above and beyond to make sure that our purchase was being carried out correctly and that we wouldn't have any issues down the road. I highly recommend Doug!
Seller, April 2020
Doug is very knowledgeable and thorough in his approach. He listens well and answers questions and addresses concerns in a thoughtful manner. Strategies are presented, discussed and periodically evaluated and tweaked, if necessary. It feels more like a team effort in working with Doug, and I appreciate his dedication in reaching the desired goals. I highly recommend him.
Buyer, November 2019
Look no further than Doug for your realtor!!!! This was our first home buying experience and Doug made it so, so simple. We had no idea what we were doing and Doug kept us on track with everything - mortgage, inspection, paperwork, etc. Also, apart from being incredibly organized and efficient, Doug is a caring an kind person - he is 100% interested in helping the customer, not only through the buying process, but as a homeowner. Doug is THE BEST.
Buyer, July 2019
It was very pleasant experience with Doug. He made house buying fun and easy. Very knowledgeable. We appreciate all his hard work and help. Looking forward to working with him again.
Seller, November 2018
From beginning to end, Doug handled every situation incredibly. After multiple interviews with realtors, Doug stood out with his knowledge and easy to like personality. His guidance and recommendations helped make this process go smoothly and lead us to our goal. Doug's attention to details brought about our property selling for above asking price. He exceeded all our expectations and we can not THANK him enough!
Buyer, October 2018
Doug was extremely helpful and very knowledgeable about the market. He always took the time to answer questions and followed up on everything we asked. We looked at quite a few properties so he went above and beyond. Would highly recommend.
Buyer, August 2018
As a picky, "entitled millennial," and first time home buyer, I knew what I wanted and was not going to settle for less. Doug McNeilly is an incredible resource and humble real estate agent, who was able to find me a terrific place to call home. His ability to be patient, responsive, and knowledgeable, is admirable. As a first time home buyer, I was unfamiliar with the home buying process and the Metrowest market. Doug provided a plethora of knowledge and information to help me make an informed condo purchase that I couldn't be more pleased with. What I like most about Doug is that he treats you like a human being and defies the stigma of sales people. His expertise and clear communication, helped make the buying process be carefree. His proactive mindset and knowledge gave me a huge piece of mind, while I attended to my desk job during the week. I highly recommend Doug, to be your real estate agent.
Seller, January 2018
Challenged with the task of selling our family home, I wisely turned to Doug McNeilly. As this was an older home, Doug was very familiar with the updates that were necessary to market our home. His expertise made the process seamless, and we received multiple bids above our asking price. Doug's market knowledge is evident not only in the value of area homes, but also in the mindset of potential buyers. Our family home sold after the first weekend open house, and Doug's follow through to the closing was stress free. I would highly recommend Doug for his professionalism, attention to detail, and expertise.
Seller turned Landlord, December 2017
"Doug is a professional who has your best interest in mind when he deals with you. His expertise is to help you make decisions that are best for you. Very rarely you find such service providers especially if they are going to receive compensation only if a trade occurs. But with Doug that is not the primary concern. He wants to provide his customers with a good experience and he knows rest will follow."
Seller, November 2017
We lived in Wayland 31 years and know the town well. Doug knows extensive details about many neighborhoods. His comps were particularly carefully chosen given that our house had not been updated. Doug’s knowledge of the sale and closing process is very detailed. He provides very professional collateral, had good advice about when to enter the market and what the pros and cons of several offers were. His open houses were well timed and produced several offers. Doug returned most calls and texts in a few hours. It felt as though we Doug’s only deal working, though I’m pretty sure he had several other things going. We had one negotiation which involved a post inspection request for substantial price reduction. It would have been a deal breaker, but Doug helped us work out a counter offer we could live with that was accepted. Doug’s easy going but firm manner made working with him a pleasure. And I very much appreciate his accommodation of my occasional bit of ill-temper.
Seller, July 2017
I highly recommend Doug McNeilly as a real estate agent. From start to finish, Doug was always very involved, had excellent advice for pricing our home and helped us every step of the way. He was always easy to reach, either by phone or text. We were extremely pleased with the results--we had multiple offers on our home, and the whole process went smoothly. Doug is very personable and professional, and did a fantastic job representing our home.
Buyer, July 2017
We were first time home buyers (and very anxious about pretty much everything). Doug guided us through every step of the process. Almost straight away he understood completely what we were looking for in a home and ensured that we really focused on seeing homes that fit our needs. He had great knowledge of the different towns that we were looking at and he also was extremely knowledgable in relation to all of our questions about owning a home. When we found our home he ensured that we did not overpay, and then negotiated additional items for us in a very effective way. He also ensured that there was a good relationship with the sellers and their realtor throughout, which has been really positive since we closed. Finally, we are also so grateful that Doug has reached out to us more than once already to offer help and support as we adjust to home ownership. We are delighted that he was referred to us and anybody looking for a realtor would be lucky to work with him.
Seller, July 2017
Doug was very thorough, easy to get in touch with and very professional. He is an expert in his field. He worked closely with us from developing the pricing and marketing strategy through the open house, and closing. He was involved every step of the way and was very effective in all that he did which led to a quick sale. We highly recommend him.
Seller, July 2016
Doug patiently walked us through the negotiations and sale of our home in Stow. He was very responsive and gave excellent advice on how we could get the highest market price and yet still get it sold quickly-as we had purchased another home prior to selling. We had multiple offers over asking and were very happy with the results
Buyer, November 2015
Thank you so much for all of your hard work on helping us find our dream house. It was such a relief to have an experienced Broker working on our side.
Landlord, November 2015
Doug is just wonderful! I simply cannot say enough about how positive our experience was with him! Incredibly knowledgeable, patient, easy to talk to and genuinely interested in helping us! He went above and beyond to make sure that the entire process went smooth.
Buyer, August 2015
We moved to Sudbury from out of state and Doug was paramount in making that happen. He's just a great guy and really wonderful to work with. He is very knowledgeable about the area and the nuances of the MA buying process (it's quite different than most other states) and his communication was great over email and phone (and in person :). He went above and beyond to provide key information and documentation that helped us make our decision on which home to buy. We wouldn't have been able to make this move without him and we highly recommend him to anyone wishing to sell or buy a home in this area.
Seller, July 2015
"Most people don't realize, the Realty Company is important, but in our case the individual who worked with us in selling our home, was the key element in our success. He was calm, easy going, very personable, new his product extremely well, and kept us appraised of the market and surrounding homes of similar size and style."
Buyer, July 2015
"Once our home was sold, we thought the pressure was off, however, it started up again. We needed a place to move to within a certain time frame. That is where an excellent Realtor was the difference. He listened to our request, location and price range and provided us with several homes to review."
Seller, June 2015
"Doug McNeilly did a fantastic job as our realtor. He went above and beyond in multiple aspects of his job. We failed Title 5 so it was a never ending amount of calls, emails, and more calls and texts in order to stay on top of things. Doug was very organized, respectful, and knowledgeable about the Town and it's many quirks. I would highly recommend him and actually have already to a few friends."
Buyer, June 2015
"We met Doug by chance when we called his office to look at a property we had heard about. Though we didn't get to see that one, Doug was always available and patient as we searched for a house to buy. A pleasure to work with and I would recommend him to anyone."
