I was born in West Seattle, graduated from the University Of Washington, have lived in many local neighborhoods, and have been a real estate agent with Windermere since 2002.
My sales and customer service background spans over 20 years, 11 being with Nordstrom. Taking care of the customer's needs are both Windermere's and my top priority. I am here to listen, inform, guide, and follow-through in a timely manner. Management experience enables me to efficiently coordinate transactions and I have enjoyed teaching first time homebuyer seminars.
There are many steps in the home buying and selling process. I personally experienced ordeals before I became a real estate agent so strive to protect my clients from pitfalls as I help navigate you through the process. I have many stories begining with my first fixer that needed extensive remodeling (flooded two weeks after I purchased), to custom new construction in the suburbs (structured incorrectly and out of code by the builder), to condominium living (assessments!), to condo conversion, townhome (my favorite), a multi-family property (helps pay your mortgage), and self managing rentals (lots of work). I've learned a great deal from these experiences so I can empathize with and anticipate your concerns. If you want to purchase or sell a house, condo, townhouse, or multi-family dwelling, I can help you.
“Philip has made the entire process so much easier for us. He always had our best interest in mind from the very beginning. We trusted him immediately. Philip has made the whole process go very smoothly. He thought of things and came up with ideas that we never would have considered on our own or with another agent. The best part is that we felt taken care of, that he was always looking out for us. He was very in tune with what we were looking for and always stayed focused on our goals” – Yonnie & Brian
