The Davidson Group Realty (TDGR) is a boutique style real estate brokerage located in Lake San Marcos, CA. We have proudly served San Diego County for over 16 years. We specialize in residential sales, leasing, and trust and probate sales. We offer free consultations for home preparation, a free de-cluttering plan, and free staging services. The following are just some of the many reasons to choose The Davidson Realty Group for your buying, selling, or leasing needs. 

We are family owned and operated

Doug Davidson founded TDGR after receiving his Real Estate License in 2003. At TDGR, we put integrity first. As a family run business, we tailor our services to meet your unique needs. We provide the same marketing reach and impact as large franchise offices while still maintaining our personal touch and caring approach. Please review our client testimonials to learn more.

We give back


The Davidson Group Realty was created with the philosophy of “giving first”. In March 2019, we sponsored our first Walking with Warriors event, which was a three mile walk to raise awareness for Wounded Warrior Homes and the 22 veteran suicides occurring every day. For over a year, Doug has been doing 22 (now 100 but who’s counting?) push ups a day to continue raising awareness for veterans. In 2018 Doug and Janice were awarded California Hero by the California State Senate for their dedication to serving veterans.

We’ve also participated in fundraisers and events benefiting:

  • San Marcos High School Band

  • Operation Gratitude

  • Wounded Warrior Homes


We surpass expectations in home preparation

One reason why TDGR is able to set records is the professional home preparation work that we do. We go above and beyond to showcase your home in the best light possible to get you the best price possible. We have a network of trusted partners in furniture sales, house cleaning, landscape services, home repair and renovation, and real estate photography to get your home in the best condition to sell. Our team has over a decade of experience staging homes, and we are proud of the work we do. Our proven strategy helps us get you the highest price in the shortest time possible.
