Due to the death of my dad my mom was forced to sell the family home. She chose Rod as her listing agent. The family can't thank Rod enough for his professional assistance and guidance. He listed the home, determined the appropriate asking price and "staged" the interior. The home sold quickly. A true professional, one who cares. Thanking You from all of our family

Rod Doris - Our Remax Man We used to live in Scarborough and wanted to move closer to our daughter. We had visited our daughter in Bowmanville for a few years and were impressed by the small town environment and the lack of the hustle bustle of Scarborough. That was in 2008. So we met with Rod Doris who treated us more like family than a customer. First Rod came to our Scarborough home and went through the pluses and minuses of what we had and how to best prepare for the sale and maximize on our return. Within a couple of weeks we were very pleased with the sale of our home and looked forward to finding a new residence in Bowmanville. Rod took us to several homes in Bowmanville and allowed us as much time as we wanted to look at each property. Finally we chose a bungalow within 10 minutes drive of our daughter and the rest is history. Rod provided us with all the information about the Bowmanville area. He fought for us to obtain the best price possible. He even provided us with a central vacuum system when the previous owner took the original. Rod keeps in touch through his news letters and occasionally drops by to ask how we are and to remind us that he is our Remax Man and will be there for us when we need to move on. We would certainly recommend Rod Doris to anyone looking to sell and/or purchase a new home. He is the best there is!

My Wife and I first meet Rod Doris in the spring of 2001 while looking to relocate to the Durham area. Rod was more than generous with his time and resource trying to help us relocate ASAP as we were moving three teenage children and needed to settle them into to their new surroundings for the new school year. We were successful and found our home for the next 16 years. 11 years later as our home started to develop more guest room then room in use, we of course are contacting Rod who has been as presence in our live whether at the gym, round about in the community or trying to help our Son find a new home (unfortunately nothing was available but he did obtain him a mortgage for his new build) Our search with Rod was long and arduous, a multitude of house were viewed, and Rod had firm faith that our new home was out there somewhere. Many many viewing later the new home was found. Our new home has met or exceeded all of our expectation. Shortly after this we selected Rod and his team to sell our other home. A slow period directly after the massive boom this spring made for a challenge to sell this property at a good price point. This was a challenge that was meet by Rod and he made sure that everything necessary to sell our home was done. Our house was sold it took a little bit longer to get our price due to the downturn but we were able to get it sold for a good price we could live with. Thanks Again

We really cannot thank Rod enough for all of the hard work that he put forth in helping us find our first house. Rod was always there, day or night to answer any questions that we had. We looked at houses for almost a year because of the sellers market and all of the bidding wars. There were many times that a pre-emptive would go in on a property that we were interested in, last minute too, Rod always got our offers done on short notice on more than one occasion. Rod always made time to show us numerous properties. He always had the information printed off and ready to go before we stepped foot inside a house. When it came time to put in an offer, Rod would always go in person to present our offer so we had the best chance possible in the tough market. Rod always stayed positive even if a seller didn't accept our offer. At times we felt like we might not get the house that we wanted but Rod was always there to try and keep us positive. A total professional at all times and very great at what he does. We ended up getting an amazing house that we couldn't be happier with. We would definitely recommend Rod because of his knowledge, patience, professionalism and love for the job that he does. Thank you again, Justin and Loreta

Until my wife and I met with Rod, we thought that the motto "meet and exceed customers' expectation", is only a desirable goal that cannot be achieved by anyone. Rod was able to transform our view towards such matter. 2 months ago we decided to move from southern Ontario to GTA. We were worried that our modest budget was not reconcilable with the prime location. Well, thanks to the unmatched professionalism displayed by Rod, when it came time to buy the house we loved, of course we ended up with an unexpected bidding wars. I remember talking to Rod on the phone that afternoon. His expert advice and calm negotiating got us our house, and I'm not sure that would have happened with another realtor. We felt throughout this process that Rod wanted the best for us and were there to represent our interests-we trusted him implicitly, and that was more than earned. He was able to find a very nice and suitable townhouse we were looking for, at the desired location, within our budget, and in a relatively short period of time.

Working with Rod has more than exceeded our expectations of what we would receive from a realtor. At the time that we decided to start our search the market was in totally chaos. From the record high pricing, to the multiple bids and everything in between but Rod was patient and did not give up on our dream of owning a home. Being a first time home buyer we both had many questions, concerns and hesitations but knowing we had a realtor we could trust made all the difference in the world. After months of searching and countless open houses we were able to find what we were looking for and Rod was right there to make sure we got it! I truly believe his expertise helped tremendously in our offer getting accepted. Not only was he able to secure our home but also make the process that much easier by providing his broker services. I would highly recommend Rods expertise to all of my friends and family and I am hoping I get the opportunity to work with him again. We truly thank you from the bottom our hearts for all of your hard work Rod!

Our sincere thanks go out to Rod Doris for helping to get our home sold quickly and professionally. We are moving from our home after being in it for 30 years. As this has been our only home for many years we are newbies to selling. Rod made the process go smoothly and eased our anxiety. I even learned some decorating tips in the process. Thanks again Rod.

Rod Doris has been my real estate agent for more than 25 years now and has successfully navigated me through several transactions. I just closed another deal this week and it was only through Rod's perseverance, great insight and solid advice that it came together. There is no other real estate agent I would even consider for my purchases, sales and mortgage needs. Thank you Rod for another job well done! This one took some work, but you got 'er done!

Rod found us the perfect home a few years ago, and when it came time for us to relocate out west, it was a given that there was only one person to call to handle our sale. What can I say about Mr. Doris that isn't obvious upon first meeting? It's a given that he is a warm and friendly realtor who has a knack for instantly putting his clients at ease and settling their nerves. What isn't seen at first glance is that Rod handles his tasks with the utmost proficiency and professionalism. His knowledge of the market and his product is incomparable. The above-and-beyonds that Rod provided to us are honestly too numerous to mention. We had a few particularly difficult details to sort, and he guided us with a friendly hand, and with the wisdom that his many years in real estate had bestowed. I would not hesitate to recommend Rod Doris to friends and family. Without a doubt, he is the professional every home buyer and seller can count on. A million thank yous, sir.

Hi Rod: First thank you for finding me my home. It was refreshing to find Rod who is old school, kind, respectful, patient, involved, and someone you can trust. He is the consummate Real estate agent, well prepared to walk the walk. He works for you, and boy did he work with me. Buying in this sellers’ market and being constantly outbid was frustrating for me, but I could always count on Rod to listen, calm my fears and let me know my home will come. Now that I finally bought my home I realize that he does not push you into buying out of desperation, he will not advise you to overextend yourself, he will tell you to put your best foot forward and be prepared walk away. Rod has become a friend someone I will be recommending to anyone and I am confident they will be pleased with the service they receive. Margaret

One week ago tomorrow we sold our home with the help of Rod Doris and his Remax Team. Our experience has been fantastic. We have lived in our home for over twenty-seven years and to move is life altering and with Rod's professionalism we were put at ease, We met Rod last fall to discuss how the process will work and there was absolutely no pressure from him to list our home. We made this decision in February and listed March 24th. It took three days to sell our home. Thanks Rod for all hard work!!

I stepped into the real estate market with some trepidation after making the decision to move to a dwelling more suitable for my needs having resided at the same location for forty two years. Rod's impeccable reputation and integrity made the choosing of a Real Estate agent to steer me through the process easy. His understanding of my list of 'must haves', 'wish to haves' and flights of fancy was beyond reproach. His patience in teaching me the realities of the market and the requirements of the legal and banking systems allowed me to process information clearly. The after sales service was even more valuable to me. His commitment to me,as his client, made the transition less stressful and I'm so pleased to have moved into my new location that truly fits the criteria of my home. I cannot thank Rod enough for all the hard work and caring that he demonstrated far above the simple job definition of Real Estate Agent. Sue
