More about Doug Bohling
Doug is a consistent top sales associate with multiple sales and performance awards, spanning many years. He has achieved real estate's President’s Circle award, Leading Edge Society and Honor Society honoring exemplary transaction levels recording a continuing level of yearly multi-million dollar sales.
He followed a path designed to increase his efficiency by completing the County Properties Graduate Series which enhanced his ability to work with residential, investment, resort and retreat properties that must conform to strict county guidelines. Doug recently was awarded the SFR designation by the National Association of Realtors.
He is most proud of his selection, by his peers, as Vice President in 2000 and then President in 2001 of BAREIS (Bay Area Information Services) for the greater Western Sonoma County area.
Though Doug Bohling was born in Hastings, Nebraska, he grew up in California and had his first taste of real estate success in the Sherman Oaks office of Jon Douglas Co., a prestigious real estate firm based in Beverly Hills, CA.
It wasn’t long before he combined his love of real estate and his passion for the wine country by moving to Sonoma County. Upon arrival he joined a small West County office that recognized his skills, and he was named manager of the Forestville and Cazadero offices for that company. He was then recruited by the Prudential California real estate firm and was there for many years and recognized as one of the top 6% of their sales force nationwide.
Doug is currently pleased and excited to be a member of Sotheby’s International Real Estate.

Cinematic Property Videos
Sample Virtual Tour
While photographs do capture the eye of potential buyers, I commission a cinematic piece about your property that tells the deeper story and creates a romantic, emotional connection to the property.
It allows us to show what it truly feels like to experience your property from sunrise to sunset; to see the wind blowing gently through the trees; the crackle of the fireplace; magical gathering spots.
The short film is embedded in your property's virtual tour and optimized to play on any computer, tablet or smart phone. It is also uploaded to almost a dozen other real estate and video websites.
Extremely appealing, effective virtual tours
Your property will be marketed online with a dedicated listing website, which will feature an interactive virtual tour and a professionally produced HD video tour.
The virtual tour allows for a thoughtful and visually pleasing venue to present your property to agents and prospective buyers. Components can include: Image Gallery, Complete Details and Features, Community Information, Printable Brochure, Mortgage Calculator, Appointment Scheduling, and a Document Sharing for information such as room rates, aerial maps and property maps.

One of my recent success stories was serving as the buyer's agent for the former Glenelly Inn in the town of Glen Ellen in Sonoma County.
My clients are a couple who own a wonderful coastal inn in Mendocino and were looking to acquire their a Wine Country property. After successfully closing escrow my clients have completed their renovation and transformation to the new Olea Hotel.
