The Yellow Door Real Estate Team of Douglas Realty Testimonials

The team did a great job despite some really frustrating complications with our home purchase.

After looking at over a dozen properties, we found what we wanted. But the sellers' agent didn't do what was required. The sellers had not maintained portions of the home, so repairs were needed. The sellers' agent wasn't keeping things on track or keeping anyone informed. The contract was breached more than once, but Denny's team persevered and we all made it through to closing. Afterwards, they followed-up and were much more supportive than expected of someone after their main job was complete. We were very happy with their way of doing business and how they did it. Highly recommended

Denny Lee was such a big help as we tried, again, to sell our house.

He was right on with the price and on how best to update in and around the house. Denny has a calming way when decisions needed to be made; he showed no stress but got things done quickly. From the first walk-through to the first open house, Denny gave great insight on how best to update and stage the house. He has a “Rolodex” of specialists for each project and sometimes helped manage the specialist. It was great to know the person working on the house was highly recommended. As offers came in Denny helped analyze each to help us decide which was best for us. We will definitely use Denny again


Denny and his team were absolutely wonderful in selling our home.

They gave us good advice and support through the whole process. Denny's knowledge of the Mount Vernon area is second to none. Within days of "going live", we had an offer which we accepted. We were very pleased with the outcome. Highly recommend Denny and his team to anyone thinking of selling their home

This is the team you want in your corner!

We worked most directly with Lou Sivak and would could not be more pleased with the results. Lou's attention to detail during our entire buying process was flawless! He knew exactly what we were looking for and encouraged us to keep looking until we found just that. He never allowed us to settle for less than we were expecting and truly helped us find the house of our dreams! It felt as though Lou was a part of our family at times because as we looked at houses and what changes we would make to fit our family, he was right alongside us with the vision and made several suggestions that we would have probably made ourselves! Lou stopped at nothing to spend as much time as necessary looking at potential homes for our family. Weekends worked best for our busy schedule and we spent many weekend days together walking through countless homes to find just what we were looking for. He also spent his birthday away from his own family to be with ours to continue hunting for the perfect home to fit our needs! Through all of this, he was never pushy or upset with the time we took and only encouraged us to wait it out until we found what we were looking for. The negotiating/buying process was also seamless. Lou and his team kept us informed every step of the way and Christina was in constant contact over email to make sure everything they needed from us what up to date. We got the house we wanted in the area we wanted for under asking price, all within just two months of our first sit-down with Lou. Closing took place in our new home, right on the counter of our beautiful island. Everything was prepared impeccably an Lou and his team were more than prepared for everything that needed to be done. It's very clear that this team has done this successfully, many times before! We cannot thank Lou and his team enough for the service they provided for us. It was fun, they were so organized and we could not be happier with the results! Sitting on our beautiful deck in our huge, quiet yard is just what we needed and Lou understood our vision and stopped at nothing to get it for us!

Yellow Door is a wonderful real estate team. They helped me find exactly the home I was looking for, kept me well-informed throughout the process, negotiated for the best price, and made every single detail feel easy. They consistently went above-and-beyond, providing a level of professional advice and personal service well above the top performers in this industry. This is my 11th real estate transaction across 5 states the past 10 years, and it was BY FAR the best. Thank you, Louis, Christina, and the Yellow Door Real Estate Team!

Denny and the whole YellowDoor team are the most professional, expert, and customer driven real estate gurus I have ever met!

We were totally lost trying to find a house in the Northern Virginia area because we were coming back to the United States from a 4 year overseas assignment. Denny, Stephen, Lewis, and Christina immediately took us under their collective wings. We felt just like a part of their families! I would highly recommend the Yellow Door team and am definitely looking forward to doing more business with them! Thank you Denny and Team!

Denny and the Yellow Door team were AMAZING!

I never imagined buying a house could be this easy. They communicated clearly and held our hand through every step. They are true experts. I highly recommend this team if you are looking for stress free real estate and financial transactions. -- Brandon P Denny Lee and the Yellow Door Real Estate team went above and beyond our expectations and as first time home-buyers, it was a relief to have such a professional team helping us every step of the way. I wouldn't recommend anyone else! They are simply the best. Thank you Louis, Christine, Allen, Lisa, Denny, Dillon and Lori for EVERYTHING. I literally don't know where we would be without you guys! Xoxo

I can't say enough good things about the Yellow Door Team.

Less than a year ago, I met Louis while searching for a condo in the area. At the time, I found the process incredibly stressful and decided to wait a few months to a year before I proceeded with my search. Louis was the only agent that stayed in touch; the other real estate agents jumped ship as I was only looking with no intention to buy. Fast forward months later, Louis quickly showed me a few condos and we put an offer in within a day! The process would have been 100x more difficult if it wasn't for Louis and his team. I can't tell you the amount of times I called Louis at 10pm - but he always answered my questions and calmed me down! I can't recommend him and Christina enough! I closed on my new home this morning thanks to all of the hard work that Louis and his team put into making this become a reality. If you're looking for an agent, Louis is your guy! I promise you won't have any regrets!

Denny and his team were absolutely wonderful and highly experience in selling our house.

It was our first time selling our house. So we were very nervous and worried, but Denny and his team took great care of us throughout the entire process. They're highly skilled and experienced in what they do. They made us feel at ease and made the entire process painless. They went above and beyond our expectation. They were on top on things and kept us updated throughout the entire process. They made sure that we understood what was happening every step of the way and provided great advice and guidance. Denny and his team were transparent and straightforward. I highly recommend using Denny and his team to anyone wishing to sale their house. We truly enjoyed working with them. We plan on using them when we move back in Northern Virginia to find a house.
