I grew up in Spencer, and graduated from Spencer High School in 1988. After graduation I attended Southwest Technical College in Jackson MN and graduated in 1990 with a degree in Carpentry. My wife Michelle & I have 2 sons Alex & Brandt. We live on an acreage North of Spencer for the last 25 years. I enjoy helping my sons with projects, hobby carpentry, and I’m a sports car enthusiast.
I started my own construction Company “Doug Small Construction” in 1999 after working with various Builders & Contractors in NW Iowa. I specialized in Residential and New Home Constructions in the Spencer and Lakes area. In my time as general contractor, I have had the opportunity to work with a great customer, along with subcontractors, and Vendors, who I now consider “Friends”!
Due to injuries, I’ve sustained over the years, I am on longer physically able to be hands on at the job. I decided to pursue a career where I can utilize my knowledge of Construction and continue to be part of the housing industry. I have obtained my Real Estate License and am now working with Hinn Real Estate in Spirit Lake. They are a very reputable firm that came highly recommended among former colleagues of mine. Although I am new to the Real Estate Industry selling side, I feel I will be learning from a very experienced sales team, giving me guidance and knowledge. This company was started over 100 years ago and is one of the oldest still operating Real Estate Offices in Iowa. They will help me to become comfortable with day-to-day listings and selling business. I would very much like the opportunity to meet with you and discuss how we can help you with your housing needs!
