Doug's kindness and professionalism as our realtor made the experience of selling our family's property a very positive one. He addressed any questions I had in a timely manner and was always willing to take my calls/inquiries when I needed clarification on something or had a concern. My family and I appreciate his diligence and hard work on our behalf. I would definitely recommend him to anyone seeking an integrative real estate professional and company. Our thanks to Doug and National Land Reality for a very positive experience and outcome on our behalf.

Doug Bruggeman was great to work with and helped us buy an amazing property. Doug has an environmental modeling background, which came in handy when setting up search criteria and making sure pricing was in line with the market.

Doug at National Land helped us so much with our land purchase. He helped us look at multiple lots and stuck with us while it took forever to close on our construction loan (because of a strict HOA). He put so much time into our deal over many months and is very knowledgeable in all aspects of the deal. Highly recommend. I went through about 4 realtors before finding these people, and I'm glad I did! Others wanted to sell me junk or me to walk the land alone and them just do the paperwork. These folks at National Land are the real deal!

Doug is extremely knowledgeable, professional and an all around amazing person to work with!

– Mary G. (May 01, 2019)

Doug's been a reliable resource for me since I made the move to Asheville. Considerate, consistent, and smart!

– Isaac P. (April 26, 2019)

Great knowledge about the environment and real estate. Plus, he’s an all-around good person.

– Steven W. (April 26, 2019)

I have worked with Doug Bruggeman and known him for many years. He is thoughtful, conscientious and dedicated in what he does. When I was purchasing a home a few years ago, I consulted Doug about potential climate change effects on the land I was considering. Doug raised some key points I had never considered, and his insights greatly informed my decision process.

– Jiefu H. (April 20, 2019)

Doug is extremely knowledgeable about environmental issues that affect land purchase decisions. He has been quick to discern the key elements I'm looking for in a land purchase. I highly recommend Doug.
