Spiro and his very capable and creative team did an outstanding job of selling my property and then within two weeks purchasing another house. Really, a fantastic job with a sense of urgency at all times.

Dorothy made our east-to-west coast relocation such a pleasure! She listened to our ideas, answered our questions, and helped us navigate our home search to find just the perfect location and house. Dorothy's knowledge of the market, the buying process, and the details of local Marin towns is  exceptional. She is a skilled negotiator and focused on providing customer service beyond our expectations. We highly recommend Dorothy as an outstanding and experienced professional realtor.

They are by far the best realtors I have ever worked with.

Spiro Stratigos, and his team are world class realtors. They helped me in all phases of my home sale: such as repairs, staging, inspections, scheduling, and open houses. He and Dorothy were always available to answer any questions or concerns I might have had. My home sale went very smoothly and I am totally satisfied. I heartily recommend Spiro, Dorothy, and their team to anyone who is in need of an excellent realtor. They are by far the best realtors I have ever worked with.

You will be in great hands...

Dorothy is quite simply an amazing real estate agent! You will be in great hands when working with her, and we highly recommend you work with her. She provided excellent advice for my Wife and I throughout our home search in the challenging San Francisco market. Her knowledge of the market trends and unique practices in the market really helped keep us on track and focused on finding the right home. Whenever we made an offer she helped put us in the best possible position, and when we had an offer accepted she excelled at handling the entire negotiation process. We felt like she truly had our best interests in mind - not just "the deal" like some other agents. That alone is so difficult to find. We love our new home, but if we ever decide to sell - we're calling Dorothy!

We staged, listed, purchased and sold all within 35 days!

Spiro was fantastic! It takes a lot of negotiating, finesse, balance and calmness to handle a sale and purchase at the same time. We staged, listed, purchased and sold all within 35 days! We needed to sell quick to get our dream house and Spiro made it happen! We could not be more grateful and thankful. He helped guide us through everything flawlessly!


Andrea Morales

Dorothy is very good at her craft and makes the work look effortless. She is smart, conscientious and committed. Dorothy represents her clients interests well while getting to "yes". Any future residential real estate needs I might have would be handled by Ms. MacDougald. Please contact the author  for any specific inquiries. He will gladly answer questions.

Spiro worked above and beyond the expectations (I had) of a real estate professional.

Spiro worked above and beyond the expectations (I had) of a real estate professional.

While Spiro came highly recommended, I felt compelled to interview three agents. It was a simple decision to work with Spiro. While I found him to be professional and straight forward, I also felt a camaraderie with him that made our working relationship successful. 

The accomplishments of this sale are due to Spiro's hard work ethic and the teamwork within his office.

Spiros Knowledge was Outstanding

Spiro provided an array of homes to look at that met our criteria. In a very short time we were able to have an offer accepted. Spiro's knowledge throughout the process was outstanding. All aspects of what to expect were clearly communicated and he kept us informed at every step along the way.   We now have a beautiful new home.

Ed K.

I would certainly work with Dorothy again.

I relocated here from the East Coast and didn't know the area at all before Dorothy met with me to review the area and discuss my goals/priorities. She directed me in a focused search that hit all of the points I was looking for and educated me along the way. I made an offer and she guided me with a number of tips on how to achieve what I was looking for and am pleased with the results. I would certainly work with her again.

Spiro found the dream home for us.

We wanted to move back to Marin from San Francisco. We had specific needs and Spiro filled them all, from the budget to the amenities. We love our home and would never have had it if not for Spiro. We highly recommend Spiro to family and friends.


Jeff and Joanna C.

Dorothy did an amazing job in our home buying process.

Dorothy did an amazing job in our home buying process. She really helped us as first time homebuyers understand everything that was happening and was incredibly communicative throughout. We wouldn't have been able to get through it without her help. With her advice, we were able to come up with the right offer, schedule all the necessary inspections quickly and close on time. She was easy to talk to, always available, and really put our minds at ease. Thanks Dorothy for all of your help!

John and Gesa J.

A Great Asset!

Dorothy and her team were a great asset! We met at a nearby open house and she really impressed us with her knowledge of the market, the local area, and her willingness to help sell our home for top dollar in the fastest amount of time. Thanks.

We Couldn't be Happier...

We knew Spiro thru Scouts and School events in Novato. So, we reached out to him to sell our home since he and his team were home grown, highly qualified, experienced and well educated in the local market. Dorothy MacDougald, his associate was wonderful...working as a dedicated team, both were  available in every step in the selling process. Dorothy also connected us with another Zephyr Agent to assist us in looking for our next home. We couldn't be happier with the results and have recommended Spiro and Dorothy to our neighbors and friends

Jorge V.

He was thorough and communicated with me throughout the whole process.

I would recommend Spiro to anyone I know looking to buy or sell.

Spiro was extremely professional with helping me buy my place. He was thorough and communicated with me throughout the whole process. Spiro made sure to communicate all details and answer any questions, thoughts or concerns that I had. Spiro was always a phone call away.


Keri and Chris A.

Working with Dorothy was a wonderful experience.

Working with Dorothy was a wonderful experience. She helped me by walking through every step of the process of the selling of my condo and if I didn't understand something, she was there to help me so I would understand.  She was someone who I felt very close to and comfortable with and whom I could trust with any questions I might have had.

Machelle G.

Highly Likely To Recommend

Dorothy had my home listed on the MLS for 2 months. In the 2 months, we received multiple offers and ultimately closed 2 weeks ago at full ask. We are very pleased with Dorothy's work ethic and professionalism. Dorothy was great to work with. She kept me calm and my anxiety low, she provided me  with great advice on strategies with respect to list price, negotiations, etc. Dorothy was extremely knowledgeable about my home and area so all potential buyers' questions had a prompt answer so everyone stayed informed and could make educated decisions. This is a function of Dorothy's continued homework behind the scenes that she does whenever she takes on a listing. Overall - we couldn't be more pleased with how well we worked together.

Rishi K.

Dorothy was great and very professional

Dorothy was great and very professional and helped with issues even after the sale had been completed. I definitely would use her again.


Ron G.

I would recommend him to anyone thinking of selling.

As an out of town Trustee of an estate, I needed someone to make sure everything was done right.

Spiro made this happen! From property preparation to negotiation he presented me with options that allowed the estate to make more money and protection.  I would recommend him to anyone thinking of selling.


Scott M.

We cannot thank Spiro enough for his knowledge, confidence, energy, motivation and humor!

Nearly 10 years late, I wouldn’t go anywhere else but directly to Frank Howard Allen, and specifically Spiro Stratigos.

On the day we found our dream home, Spiro literally had the day prior shown us 13 properties… then on Sunday morning with nearly no notice, took the time away from family and showed us two more homes;  the last being 2214 Warwick Drive.  We immediately fell in love with the home, and Spiro went into action.

We cannot thank Spiro enough for his knowledge, confidence, energy, motivation and humor! He got us through it and we now are on the way to growing or little family in the most amazing home we could have ever dreamt of.


Steve and Becky S.

Very professional, friendly and efficient.

Dorothy represented us in the sale of our home in a very professional, friendly and efficient manner. She was especially responsive to our requirements, and provided timely feedback during the entire process. I would recommend her very highly to our family and friends.

He Knows the Market

Spiro was very professional and polite. He knows the market very well and priced our house at the perfect price. He is the realtor to call when you are ready to sell your house.

Craig and Cindy H.

Spiro was spot-on in his advice and teaming up with us to sell our house. He exceeded our expectations. We trusted him with our biggest asset and he did not let us down. He held our hand every step of the way!


James and Donna Robbins

Dorothy was amazing...

Dorothy was amazing through the entire sales process. Very knowledgable of the area and able to provide guidance on the offer price. We look forward to working with her in the future. Highly recommend her services.

Perfect combination of knowledge and insight...

Dorothy represented us in the buying of a property in Novato and she is the perfect combination of knowledge and insight, combined with honesty and humor. She helped us make an offer that was accepted without further negotiation and then helped steer us through trying times with inspections and close of escrow. Regardless of the situation, she was always smiling and her follow through was second-to-none. She has been a source of helpfulness with referrals for services in the area and I would recommend her without reservation for anyone looking for a home in this area.

Paula Lufburrow

Dorothy was a pleasure to work with and made our lives so much easier thru the upheaval of listing, packing, closing. Basically at every step of the way. No matter how crazy I thought my questions were sometimes she always took her time and walked us through it. I wish I could take her with me to  sell our next home!
