Hailing from the Mount Airy section of Philadelphia, Michelle Phillips is an accomplished real estate veteran who has represented clients all over Philadelphia, several neighboring counties, as well as New Castle County, Delaware. Before joining the Compass Real Estate family, Michelle and her team spent years with Keller Williams, in both the KW Blue Bell and KW Philly offices. It was there that she started the Michelle Phillips Team, one of the best-selling teams for several years in a row. Michelle’s reputation has continued to soar as she was recently voted one of the 40 best Realtors under age 40 and #2 of the top 50 Pennsylvania Realtors on social media.
After graduating from Philadelphia University with a major in Marketing/Fashion Merchandising, Michelle began cultivating her passion for real estate. After buying and selling her first home, she realized her keen eye and natural savviness—honed by her years of education and hands-on experience—would lend themselves well in the real estate industry.
Ample opportunities to meet new people, create new relationships, and helping others has been a bonus for Michelle and become part of her intrinsic motivation. Michelle works with many sellers - having some of Philadelphia’s top rehabbers, investors, and builders as repeat clients. Home buyers, whether purchasing their first, second or fifth home, feel at ease with Michelle due to her honesty, trustworthiness, and dedication. She takes the time to educate her clients, ensuring they’re comfortable and understand every step of the process.
An assertive negotiator, Michelle has built a solid foundation of clients through her tenacious attitude, diligence, and detail-oriented approach. Michelle also offers a diverse skill set and creative marketing techniques, which have allowed her to market and sell multiple properties to buyers as close as the next-door neighbor to international buyers as far as Israel.
What Michelle loves most about Philadelphia is the shopping, culinary scene, and sports. Her passion for helping others in her community has led to over 30 years of philanthropic work. With 100% of real estate transactions resulting in donations, Michelle supports meaningful causes such as feeding/clothing the homeless, cancer research, lupus research, college scholarships, holiday food drives, back-to-school drives, toy drives, hurricane victims, etc.
In her free time, Michelle is an avid reader and traveler - frequently traveling to Europe, Asia, Africa and the Caribbean Islands. Spending time engaging in Mommy-and-me swim and gymnastics classes alongside her amazing two-year-old daughter is something she cherishes. Balancing a multimillion-dollar business alongside motherhood is no easy feat, but Michelle stays motivated by her desire to ensure she is an excellent role model and source of inspiration to her child.
