Clients are saying:
"Agents Phillip Schwartz & Steve Davis were terrific throughout our process. They key, for me, was they listened us. The information they provided was spot-on & we developed an ideal working relationship. Steve listed our property on a Friday, and we had tenants and a signed lease on Wednesday. Incredible. Phillip walked us through the whole process & answered ALL of our questions. When its time to sell our property, I will definitely call Phillip & Steve. Job well done."
"I highly recommend Philip Schwartz! Philip recently helped me sell my 2-flat, and I look forward to working with him in the future on other real estate transactions. His background in building materials is invaluable, as are his many successful years in the real estate industry. I commend his attention to detail, his tenacity, and his professionalism."
"It was great working with Philip. He has a in depth knowledge of the market and his guidance is perfect. We had a great experience working with Philip and would recommend him to folks wanting to buy, lease or sell property. He is direct and has a straight approach which is always the reality."
"Philip is proactive, assertive, and very responsive, and he found the best home for my husband and I. This house went on the market one afternoon, and Philip got us in to see it that evening. It happened to be everything we were looking for, which was a lot, and we moved in yesterday. Thank you, Philip, for your dedication, thoroughness, and expertise."
"I made poor Philip show me so many homes before we picked out the one we liked. His expertise on building materials came in exceptionally handy when going over the construction of each building we saw. Closing was a cinch. For the first time ever buying a home, Philip sure made it easy."
