A straight-shooting, no-nonsense, fifth generation Central Florida native, BluRiver broker and founder Doug Packard is an accomplished professional with more than 30 years experience in all aspects of commercial and residential real estate. He has worn many real estate hats, including those of commercial mortgage banker, land developer, builder, remodeler, marketer, and broker. His true passion, however, has always been helping people buy and sell their homes with complete transparency and without the typical realtor games and BS.
Doug is widely recognized as an expert on the north Orlando real estate market and he is frequently quoted in the Orlando Sentinel, Florida Trend Magazine, Florida Realtor Magazine, and Orlando Business Journal. While this experience and expertise are vitally important to his clients' success, it is his innate ability to match extraordinary lives with extraordinary homes along with his tenacious protection of his clients' interests that truly sets him apart from his peers.
Doug works with his clients one-on-one and will never hand you off to some inexperienced "team member". To ensure that you receive the highest level of service and to maximize your results, he only works with a few clients at a time.
