MY CLIENT-FIRST PHILOSOPHY

I've worked in Kingston, Ontario for the past 17 years as a real estate professional. My wife Maureen has been my assistant for 8 years and now been a licensed real estate agent for these past 4 years. We function easily as a team and we can give you as much time as is necessary for your real estate needs. Some people come to us and their transaction is done rather quickly,…but we also understand and know from experience that others need more time. Not to worry, we are also here for the “long haul”.

There are many skills and qualities that go into becoming an excellent real estate professional; in-depth market and community knowledge, integrity, effective negotiating skills, marketing savvy and a professional high-quality network,… all of these are hallmarks, of how we work.

As seasoned Kingston real estate professionals, we've also found that putting our clients first is an essential service, which means being a good listener, a good communicator and always responding quickly and effectively to your needs. Proof of this can be quickly evident,… just call or drop us a line.

Our "client first" philosophy has always been our approach and it requires us to continually improve our skills, our continuing real estate education and ways of doing business. In addition, we've found that the latest technologies are enabling us to do everything we've always done, only much more quickly and efficiently. (We love our electronics!!) They've also helped us to extend the range of services that we can provide to our clients.

So when you decide that you'd like to buy or sell a home in Kingston or the surrounding area, put our experience to work. We’d be very pleased to work with you. Give us a call, you won’t be disappointed. All it takes, is your phone call. Let’s chat….

I’m especially proud to let you read this Testimonial section (below) of our web site. These letters and emails in the form of testimonials, that we have received from past clients, speak volumes as to how Maureen and I work in real estate. It’s all fine and well for us to tell you that we do good work, etc but it’s an entirely different matter for you to read how our past clients express what we have done for them. One of the things that we tell our clients, is that we are here for the “long haul”....  from beginning to end. And YES, we can even meet up with you at our local Kingston airport to pick you up on your arrival. It’s just the way we work. Sometimes the whole story that comprises real estate can be very straightforward as to how things work out and other times,….  it can get quite complicated,….  as real estate can occasionally be.
Whatever the case, we want to be your link to real estate and for your search and transaction to be as seamless as possible. We have lots of experience and we work with one of the best real estate companies in Canada.
Please give us a call and then let’s move forward. We’re always available!
In the meantime have a read below to find out what makes us some of the best agents in our region.

"We have had the pleasure of working with Doug Blackstock over the course of about six months. Prior to having any details about our relocation, we communicated by telephone and through the internet consistently. Doug was a wonderful source of information and diligently kept up all new listings and would not hesitate to call us if a home fitting our needs would become available. Having only a few days notice to find a home and after viewing select homes, we quickly found the house of our dreams. Doug went well out of his way to accommodate our schedule, making us feel as though our needs were important to him. His level of professionalism and expertise was unsurpassed."


"We do not hesitate to recommend Doug Blackstock to anyone as we know his clients will certainly benefit from his vast experience, knowledge and valuable recommendations. Thank you Doug, for your tremendous effort throughout the hectic holiday season."

"I just had to write you about how thrilled I am with my recent condo purchase in Kingston! You provided top-notch service throughout the entire process, and it was a pleasure working with you to achieve my investment objectives. When I first came to you with my interests in Kingston real estate, you quickly zeroed-in on exactly what my needs are and what I was trying to accomplish. Together we identified three suitable condo buildings and also a few others with considerable “potential.” I understood clearly what the comparative strengths and limitations of each building are for my investment goals. And you did all this without me needing to look at lots of marginal properties. When a unit came available in my first-choice building, we were able to move swiftly to negotiate and close the deal. Units do not come up in this particular building very often, and I was so pleased that I was able to come to agreement on price and terms smoothly and promptly. The sale was concluded just a few weeks later, as smooth as butter. As a buyer from the US, there were so many differences and details buying property in Canada. You kept me informed at every step, and you managed all those details smoothly. Doug Blackstock is a complete professional! In your business practices I see the perfect marriage of expertise, thoroughness, and great service. I recommend Doug Blackstock without hesitation! Doug is efficient, sincere, sharp, and thorough. These abilities set you apart from the crowd of everyday agents. You truly make Real Estate look “easy”! Thanks again! "

Sincerely, Paul K. Fessler

Tim and Debbie Laprade, Kingston


"This letter is to thank Doug Blackstock and his wife Maureen for the time and effort they put into my real estate purchase. I recently bought a house, with them as my acting agents and I couldn’t have asked for better service. I was a first time home buyer and therefore didn’t know the industry all that well. Doug was extremely patient and helpful, showing me well over 20 homes during my search. He gave me advise on all the small details regarding buying a new home, that I would never have known on my own. His advise and caring demeanor went above and beyond the call of duty. I have and will recommend Doug’s services to friends and family for their future real estate needs. If and when I leave my current home, I would not hesitate to call upon Doug and Maureen for their services once again. After hearing several horror stories from people having poor experiences with real estate agents, I consider myself extremely lucky to have worked with Doug and Maureen. John DiPaolo, Kingston Economic Development Corporation (KEDCO) We thank you so much for what you did for us. When we called you, we were desperate, but you took things in consideration so fast that we felt relieved. Your way of being so active, really helped and you gave us a hand finding the house that we needed so much for that certain date, and in just a few days everything was possible. We admire you for being so prompt, and for sure in the future we will remember you, so once again you can do your good work for us. Thanks. Jose and Odete Arruda, Kingston Just a quick note to thank you again for the great job you did for us on our recently-completed transaction. You came well recommended by lawyer Doug Slack and we were impressed with your level of professionalism and enthusiasm. You kept us well informed throughout the process even though I am in Montreal and you are in Kingston. Although the process was quite a distance from the center of Kingston, your hard work and diligence resulted in your finding just the right buyer. Receiving regular updates on your progress, including fax copies of advertising that you had done on our behalf and promotional material you created and distributed to other agents, made us feel that you were actively, and consistently, making every effort to sell the property. Probably the most important thing to us in this transaction was the fact that we feel that both Buyer and Seller were treated fairly, and negotiations were handled professionally. Once again, thank you for the effort you put in on our behalf. We appreciate your way of interacting with clients that is friendly and makes one feel totally at ease and confident. It would be our pleasure to refer other potential clients in the future. Glen and Suzanne Pike, Nesbit Burns Ltd., Montreal It is with great pleasure that I congratulate you for earning and receiving the President’s Gold Award. You should be proud of your accomplishments as a Royal LePage Award Winner. This award recognizes your hard work, commitment to customer care, and dedication to the profession. It also acknowledges your standing in the industry and among your colleagues at Royal LePage. I know that achievements like this do not come easy. However, I trust that the feelings of pride, confidence and respect that this award engenders, will make your efforts feel like time well spent. Once again, congratulations from the Royal LePage family and myself. Your contribution to your profession, and to Royal LePage ProAlliance are truly appreciated. Bob Armer, Area Manager, Royal LePage ProAlliance Realty, Kingston Doug Blackstock was recommended to us by one of his previous clients. We found him to be very personable, professional and efficient. Doug kept us up to date with the progress of our sale via email and telephone messages. Our house was sold only four days after we listed it with Doug. He offered his expertise when negotiating time arose and assisted us in securing a selling price, very close to the asking price of our home. We highly recommend Doug to anyone contemplating selling his or her home, as we feel he is a veryconscientious, competent agent. Sandra Alliston and Jack Mallette, Sudbury We had occasion to work with Doug Blackstock of Royal LePage through our recent move. It was a difficult time for us, as it took us eleven months to sell our house in another province. Throughout this ordeal, Doug worked with us with patience and humor. Doug showed us over numerous homes and never complained as we changed our minds. He provided us with listing upon listing and took us everywhere, both in the city and the countryside. Doug understood our needs and worked with us to obtain the best deal. Doug exemplified professionalism. We would not hesitate to recommend Doug for anyone's real estate needs. John and Barb Wright, Procurement Supervisor, Bombardier, Kingston Over a three-month period, Doug Blackstock worked with us on the sale of two separate properties and the purchase of one. He proved to be very knowledgeable about the real estate market and made himself available to us at all hours. We were very pleased with the assistance he afforded us and we were completely satisfied. Steven A. Macintyre, Dulles, Virginia When my wife and I recently moved from Toronto to Kingston, we were exceptionally fortunate to find Doug Blackstock to act as our agent. We immediately developed a superb rapport because of Doug's efforts to understand exactly what we wanted in our new home. He really looked after our interests. As a result of his work on our behalf we found just the right house in a matter of days, and at a better price than we thought possible.I wholeheartedly recommend Doug to anyone looking to buy a home in the Kingston area. Colonel (ret'd) John and Doreen Marteinson, Royal Military College, Kingston Over the past three years, you have helped me sell two homes (one in the city and one in another town) and to buy one home in the local area. Because of your professionalism and desire to help others, I feel I couldn’t have chosen a better agent. You devoted many hours to my cause and for this I say thank you, with a great deal of gratitude. I trust your future will be happy in the field you have chosen. Thanks again and my God bless. Connie Wilson, Kingston As first time home buyers, my wife and I were intimidated and overwhelmed by the process. Your knowledge of the real estate market was instrumental in both finding and purchasing our home. Despite our compressed time schedule throughout, you were always approachable and made yourself available to suit our needs. As a former military service member, you were a definite asset in understanding our family’s unique housing needs. We would not hesitate to use your services in the future and will recommend you to others. Daniel Winsor & Linda Higginbottom, Canadian Forces Joint Signals Regiment, Kingston
