Douglas Thayer – CPM®, President / Owner
Shortly after graduating from Babson College in 1977, Doug joined his family’s insurance and real estate business. Ten years later he acquired the company and incorporated Thayer & Associates.
Doug received his license as a Massachusetts Real Estate Broker in 1978 (License # 103221) and his designation as a Certified Property Manager (CPM®) in 1985 (Key # 10174). In 1994 the Boston Metropolitan Chapter of the Institute of Real Estate Management honored him with the CPM® of the Year Award.
Doug has also served as president of the Rental Housing Association, a division of the Greater Boston Real Estate Board (1987), and as president of the Boston Metropolitan Chapter #4 of the Institute of Real Estate Management (1991).
In 1993 Doug was elected to a three-year term on the Board of Selectmen in his hometown of Wakefield, where he lives with his wife Jane and son Mark. His daughter Candice, who joined Thayer & Associates in 2004, represents our fourth generation of professional real estate managers.
