What Clients Say About Phil

Phil was the consummate professional and managed to connect me with the exact type of home I was seeking. He maintained an excellent level of communication, helping to get questions answered between myself and the sellers. The process was more simple that most home buying processes because Phil anticipates what will happen next and deals with issues up front. From my initial call to Phil to the "Your escrow has closed and the house is yours," call and everything in between was flawless. Phil and his team are top-notch professionals and their assistance with my home purchase allowed me to remain focused on my ultimate end result - forging a new chapter for my life in a perfect little cottage in a terrific neighborhood.

We bought two other homes with Phil Schaefer prior to engaging him to sell our home. We have the utmost confidence in Phil. Phil is highly ethical, very dedicated, extremely knowledgeable about our very special neighborhood and we remain confident Phil was able to get us the best sales price. Phil is delightful to work with and goes the extra mile. We were not living in the area at the time of the sale and Phil took care of many things for us.

When I decided to list my home of 28 years, I knew I wanted someone who knew my market. I did a little research for recent sales in the area and found Phil. I sub,utter an inquiry and had a call back in less than a minute. He prepared a market analysis, suggested some repairs and staging that could enhance the appeal, and made a recommendation for listing price significantly higher than I thought was possible. His knowledge and expertise were validated by over 1700 online views, very good open house traffic, and 2 offers in a little over 3 weeks very close to the listing price. I couldn't be happier. Escrow closed in 30 days... End to end process was about 9 weeks. Amazing.
