Meet Doug & Mona

Mona is a partner of The Doug and Mona Group. The group was founded in 2022, after Mona Banes and Doug Richards, decided to combine their skills and expertise, to provide an unrivaled and unyielding customer experience while achieving exceptional results. 


Mona was incredible. She helped our family with both the sale and purchase of our homes. She mapped out the entire process, potential considerations, timelines, and comparables. She was an absolute star and a class act. I would highly recommend her to anyone who wants the best in the business. Thank you Mona for helping us also find our dream home.

We highly recommend having Mona on your team. She knows the temperature of the local market and advises accordingly. She offered suggestions to improve the marketability of our home and those same upgrades led to us receiving our asking price within a few days of listing. Mona kept us informed throughout the process and was skillful at negotiating on our behalf of us. She will be our go-to Realtor® on all transactions in the area.
