There is almost nothing that we can remember being as nerve-wracking, exciting (and let’s be honest, stressful!) than purchasing our first home. Paul took all the stress out of the equation for us, with his years of experience, unmatched knowledge and boundless kindness. We could not have been more happy than we were with the experience searching for and visiting homes with Paul’s guidance. Paul uses an incredibly helpful online app system that allowed us to see properties that matched our requirements without having to enter all our details over and over again – we told him what our dream home looked like and he provided! Thanks to Paul, our home purchase process was as smooth as a baby’s bottom, and we have since moved in to the home of our dreams. We cannot wait to raise our family here and we owe an enormous debt of gratitude to Paul for all of his help, advice and generosity of spirit. If you are looking for a Realtor, it’s time to stop looking. You’ve found one.

Searching for and discovering our first home with Paul was a great experience. As first time buyers, reviewing listings was an intimidating task as we attempted to prioritize items including neighborhood, home size, home quality, proximity to work and more. Paul provided us with extremely valuable guidance from his many years of experience and family roots in the area. He listened to our desires and requirements and created a tailored list of properties for us to review. This was incredibly helpful as we were out of town at the time and needed a methodical strategy for viewing prior to driving up. Little did we know that our positive experience with Paul had just begun. Adding to the already helpful and personable viewing strategy Paul had developed for us, meeting up with him in person as we walked through several home options cemented our wonderful decision in selecting agents. It was clear from the beginning that Paul was searching for our home, not just any home. His experience and connections in the community put us at ease while searching as he helped us thoroughly inspect each home prior to engaging in the offer process. Advice provided during the offer stage was both welcomed and pragmatic. We did not have any experience in this process and Paul provided guidance and clarity at every step of the way. Further, at no point did we feel pressured in any way. It was clear that Paul had our best interests at heart. Throughout this process, it felt as if we were searching as one family unit. We consider ourselves incredibly lucky to have found Paul for our home searching endeavor. We have ended up more happy than we could have imagined with our home, and found a lifelong friend in the process. Thank you so very much Paul!
When my family asked me who I would recommend for the estate sale, my top pick was Paul Doig at Royal Heritage Realty Ltd. Having worked with him in the past, I am impressed with his leadership, stellar organization, and interpersonal skills. Paul cares about his clients and his community. After viewing the house, he provided us with a list of recommendations to stage the property within a realistic and achievable timeline. His selling list price was consistent with the Peterborough market. To assist us with the process, he introduced us to his professional dream team including a home inspector, contractor, and stager. Their work was excellent – we were highly impressed with the transformation and overall curb appeal. As a result, the property sold far beyond the list price. We are very appreciative of Paul’s professionalism and flair for perfection.
“Paul Doig was first class in his performance, being knowledgeable and readily available to assist us with the utmost enthusiasm at all times. Given this experience we would have no hesitation recommending Bowes and Cocks to others, and will certainly consider using their service again in the future.”

Over the 20 years I’ve been buying and selling properties I’ve worked with several good realtors. I thought I knew what to expect. Wrong! To sell my Peterborough home I engaged Paul Doig and learned that there are some people who will go WAY above and beyond the expected, as Paul did to help get my house ready for the market. The learning of new things didn’t stop there for me. With smart strategizing and his years of experience, Paul proceeded to sell my home in record time with multiple offers and, ultimately, a price that still has me stunned days later! And, as if that weren’t enough, he made the whole process so much less stressful than I know it can be. I can’t recommend him highly enough!
PAUL GOES ABOVE AND BEYOND!
While I was in the U.K. in September I had an offer on my cottage. Of course my cell phone was off! Well – Paul tracked me down at the hotel in London. Next morning – note under my hotel room door – PHONE PAUL!!
When booking into the next hotel they say there is a message from guess who – PAUL!
Third hotel – same thing!
E-mails were sent back and forth with instructions – initial here, sign here. REALLY PAUL!!
FINALLY deal goes through!!
Paul is like a dog with a bone!! HE JUST DOES NOT GIVE UP UNTIL THE DEAL CLOSES!
Working with Paul was an absolute joy. When we decided it was time to purchase our first home for our young family, he was our immediate choice. He took the time to understand who we were and what we were looking for. Then, upon becoming clients he went above and beyond in representing us and seeing to our best interests. Paul treated us as his own family. We are very glad we got to work with Paul and we wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him!

It was truly a pleasure to work with Paul on the purchase of our first home. As first time buyers, we were unsure of what to expect, but Paul’s friendly demeanor immediately put us at ease. Throughout the entire process Paul was extremely knowledgeable, personable and always professional and we appreciated the extra time that he would spend with us to ensure we understood each step along the way and happily answered all of our many questions. Once we found the perfect home, Paul went above and beyond all of our expectations and continually went the extra mile to help us acquire information, contact contractors, and set up appointments with the lawyer and home inspector. Paul was by our side every step of the way and made the entire home buying experience seamless.
We are so grateful for all of Paul’s hard work and his commitment to finding us the perfect home! We would certainly recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell a home in Peterborough.

” Selling a home can be a daunting task…. Paul made us feel at ease right from the start. With a thorough market analysis, he made sure we were asking a fair price for our home. Throughout the listing and selling process, Paul was always there for us, either by phone, text or in person, making sure our questions got answered, and all the “i’s got dotted” and “t’s got crossed”.
He went above and beyond the call of duty as our realtor, and we would not hesitate to recommend Paul Doig to anyone looking to buy or sell. It has been a pleasure working with him…. both before and after the “SOLD” sign went on the lawn. “
