Philip graduated from the University of Illinois in Chicago with a bachelor's degree in Business Entrepreneurship. Philip started his career in real estate in 2014 by working as a leasing agent and specializing in luxury high-rise residential buildings. He came to residential real estate after 6 years in the hospitality industry and 2 years in the home security sector, which he considers an ideal environment for building relationships and understanding homeowner needs. His approach to this industry has always involved using the latest technologies and tools to serve his clients while providing exceptional hands-on service and face-to-face contact at every step of the deal. He believes that preparedness is half the battle, which is why he generously invest sample time for his clients to ensure all aspects are considered.
As a resident of the centrally located Bucktown/Wicker Park communities, he has first-hand understanding of Chicago's many neighborhoods and has experienced the diverse offerings that each present. He enjoys walking and running the 606 trail, biking down the lakeshore, attending local concerts and shows, and carousing at local bars and restaurants within the community.
Having then worked as a co-listing agent in a Top 1% Producing Team for nearly 2 years, Philip has learned invaluable skills essential for a successful real estate transaction. His specialties include performing a detailed comparative market analysis justifying a property's pricing based on recent sales or trends within the market in addition to the traditional listing activities such as guided tours, hosting open houses and obtaining market feedback. Additionally, his experience as a buyer's agent allows him to understand exactly what factors increase the desirability and allure of a property, so he integrates this approach into his listing and sales strategy.
Philip is a hardworking and ambitious real estate broker who will gladly go above and beyond the norm to please his client and ensure their success! Do not hesitate to reach out for assistance when buying, selling or leasing within the greater Chicago area including the surrounding suburbs.
"Phil was very helpful throughout my first home buying experience. Played a big piece in negotiating a fairly large credit, as well. Would highly recommend."
"We had the pleasure of working with Phil in selling our home. During open houses and showings, we received wonderful feedback from all potential clients noting his enthusiasm, professionalism and knowledge of the unit, the neighborhood and current market. Phil was also prepared and knowledgeable in our first meeting, which gave us assurance in his work and how we priced the unit. This confidence in him was again evidenced in how he showed up professionally during inspections, accommodating buyer’s requests, coordinating schedules, negotiations, etc. It was clear we were a priority and we are thankful to him for helping make the sale process a successful one!"
"Phillip is extraordinary, he loves to build a relationship and takes his time in making sure the client is confident with his purchase but also guides us through the process, meaning recommending us the best based off his experience, most of the time us clients are very indecisive because it a natural thing and we feel like we might be missing out on other opportunities out there but Phillip ensures us that we are making the right purchase."
