Doug Sager stands out in the crowd, not only because he is 6’7” and hard to miss, but because he has an unparalleled work ethic and is driven by exceeding the expectations of his clients. Doug exudes superior service, attention to detail and high standards. Operating with integrity and confidentiality, your goals will become his goals.
Growing up in the Sonoma Wine Country, Doug is a Bay Area native who began his career during a downward cycle; that taught him to work comfortably in the most challenging of situations. He has built that career to become one of the top producers at his full-service east bay brokerage, The Grubb Company. Doug’s clients can attest to his focus on meeting their needs and their needs alone and he has countless testimonials to that effect.
For sellers Doug has a proven system that leads to successful results, often creating multiple offer situations and his listings typically sell for an average of 112% of list price. His system combines proven techniques and uses the latest technology to make sure every possible buyer will be attracted to the home. For buyers, Doug is a skilled negotiator who is there every step of the way, from the moment buyers fall in love to the crafting and presenting of the offer, to the close of escrow and beyond.
Doug is proud to be a member of the historic and beautiful Sequoyah Country Club in the Oakland Hills. A former touring golf professional and All-American at UC Davis, goals and dreams have always been an important part of his life. Being part of others goals and dreams now fuels the fire inside him to succeed in real estate, his true calling.
Giving back is equally important to Doug. He served as the 2016 President of Oakland | Berkeley Association of Realtors and volunteers his valuable time to promote home ownership as a Director at both the state (CAR) and national (NAR) levels. He is currently the President of his Neighborhood Association in the Sequoyah Hills and has served on the Board of The First Tee of the East Bay, an organization that offers under-privileged local youth the opportunity to learn the great game of golf while building character and life skills to help them succeed.
Doug’s passions include radio journalism. After graduating from UC Davis, Doug worked as a local news reporter for KQED News Radio and NPR. He also hosted a radio show on KDVS called “Family” – an LGBT-focused talk show where role models were interviewed on the air about their struggles and triumphs set to the musical background of Doug’s favorite house and electronic music.
Doug’s other passions include world travel, great food and wine and building his life with his husband Abe.

“Doug Sager was the best agent I have ever worked with and this is not my first real estate transaction. He was prompt, courtesy, knowledgeable, reliable and his follow thru was impeccable. If it hadn’t been for Doug we wouldn’t have had this or any transaction go thru as quickly and efficiently.” - Karen S., Buyer, Hayward
“Doug was extremely helpful and attentive from our first meeting through the point at which we finally closed. Unfortunately, we experienced a number of difficulties with our lender, but Doug was there every step of the way, offering constructive solutions and assuring us that we would make it through the process. - Buyer, Oakland
“Doug Sager is an incredible real estate agent. I worked with Doug in purchasing my first home through a city program, which was very tedious with lots of red tape. Doug followed through on every detail and important deadlines. Doug went above and beyond to help me get my application approved. I was very impressed with Doug’s knowledge and guidance. Doug is also a great communicator and negotiated a very good deal for my home sale and I was so happy when I finally got to my closing. I am so thankful to Doug and my family and I are very happy in our brand new home. I would recommend Doug Sager to anyone — he is absolutely phenomenal!” - Sandra B.- Buyer, Oakland Hills
