Doug and Christi currently reside in Huntington Harbour, CA. Doug was born and raised in Southern California, specifically Long Beach. He completed his entire education in Long Beach graduating from Long Beach State with a BS in Business and a concentration on Finance as well as a minor in Physical Education. While having numerous jobs growing up, the commercial real estate industry always beckoned. While in his teens, Doug worked part time for a firm and eventually ended up working for a developer which led him to build a commercial real estate brokerage. While he owned and operated his own company, he realized times were changing and he needed to make his own changes which led him to Lyon Stahl.
Specializing early on in Industrial Leasing and Sales with his teams, he needed more experience to train all of the agents. The natural gravitation to Retail was appealing as well as a challenge with the investment numbers. Having a cumulative close of sales and leasings of over $300,000,000.00 Doug’s favorite real estate is the kind that grows through good management, smart 1031 Exchanges, whether in free standing NNN properties, multi tenant industrial and retail properties, or even working with Delaware Statutory Trusts (DST’s).”The amount of tax savings through exchanging and then taking advantage of the Accelerated Depreciation is a true rush” says Doug. “ If you get appreciation on top of that, pure gravy”
Give Doug a property and a family background and with Lyon Stahl, a full profile can be identified and acted on.
Doug’s outside interests include daily fitness, golfing, boating and being a lifelong snow skier. His favorite ski locations are his home in Park City, Utah and his cabin in Big Bear Lake, CA. Doug has two children, Eric and Kaitlyn and a 3 year old granddaughter named Klarke.
