My wife Gwen and I have been married for over 30 years, with one daughter and the world's most spoiled grand daughter. In my spare time, I really enjoy the Florida lifestyle that includes fishing, kayaking, walking on the beach, and not being cold in February.
Gwen and I currently serve on the Palm Harbor, FL Keller Williams Agent Leadership Council, or ALC, which is only available to the top 20% of agents in an office. Our Palm Harbor, FL office currently has 100 agents, so we take our service on the ALC very seriously, since we are part of a select group responsible for the well-being of all the agents in our office.
We are a really effective team using, our previous corporate experience to make our professional real estate business a true business and this helps us to guide our customers to the right decisions when buying and selling their homes. Since buying and selling homes is big business, many people really need experienced business people to help them make good, financial decisions. And very importantly for the consumer, we work with the customer to make sure that the laws that regulate a real estate transaction are followed so that the seller, or the buyer, does not get sued later for misunderstanding or simply not being aware of specific real estate laws. After all, real estate if far more than putting a "for sale" sign in the front yard.
Doug Campbell's Blog Posts
We now live in Dunedin, FL, one of the most interesting communities we have ever lived in. The downtown area is thriving, with excellent restaurants, very interesting and eclectic shops, several micro-breweries, numerous street festivals (craft fairs, Mardi-Gras, Old Fashioned Christmas, boat parade celebrations), and the city marina at the end of Main Street. We want to be able to help others find their dream homes, whether it be on or near the water, on or near the beaches, or any other dream they need fulfilled. We focus on contract negotiations, and are proud of the constantly happy customers we work with. They are so happy with our services that even when our customers move out of state, they refer us to their friends. These referrals are the lifeblood of our business and we take great pride of the fact that our customers have so much faith in our services that they recommend us to their friends and familes.
Testimonials for Doug Campbell

My wife and I had a wonderful experience working with Doug and his team. They were always on their game and made our home buying experience very pleasant.
If you want someone that knows their trade, you would be very happy with Doug and what he can bring to your home buying experience.
I honestly don't think we could have asked for two more informative and competent and attentive agents. We were treated and respected like A-list clients and would most definitely use them again. They are wonderful people.
I have known Doug for many years and when it came time for my daughter to find her first house, I turned to him.
Doug took time to talk with her about what she wanted, identified several houses and arranged for her to view them, each time making note of the likes and dislikes until he found the right match.
All through the process from search to purchase, Doug worked with her to arrange inspections, line up financing, and close on the property. The whole time, we knew he was looking out for her to make sure she was happy with it all.
Doug is honest, detail oriented, and customer focused. I have since sent several friends and family members who are looking to move to this area, to Doug. I know that with him, they are in good hands.
If you are looking for someone who cares about you, is honest, and highly knowledgeable about the area, Doug is the go to guy.
Doug is an extremely competent, honest, courteous, and personable gentleman. He went out of his way (literally) to help me complete this purchase. He is highly recommended!
Both Gwen and Doug were great to deal with. They not only taught me a lot about the transaction but were always there to listen when I needed to vent. They were super great at relieving my stress.

We went through a short sale. They were all very supportive. Their assistant Terri kept us informed every step of the way. Short sales can be a very long process and most times buyers will bail. Gwen kept us up to date. The buyer that purchased our home hung in with us during the short sale process for 9 months. Gwen was there every step of the way. Terri kept us up to date each day and week, even texting us on the weekends if there was an issue or problem or just allow us to vent. We would absolutely recommend Gwen and Doug.

We had some tribulations in the selling of our house when our buyer backed out shortly before closing. Gwen and Doug helped prop up our mental state as we moved forward. Gwen had another offer within 24 hours.
There are organizations that base their existence on savings on real estate commissions, but one cannot imagine the amount that a professional real estate agent, like Gwen and Doug, has to execute to complete the sale. The cost of the real estate commssions are a bargain at any price. Please accept our heartfelt thanks and give special appreciation to Gwen for all her help.
