Brian Phillips is the only person I turn to on any real estate transaction. I have worked with Brian on several projects including several sales of property and the leasing of multiple dwellings. In each sale, Brian presented me with highly qualified buyers. In each and every rental, the tenants were well screened and were in place for long terms with no incidents. Brian is the ultimate professional. He is discreet, always well informed and punctual for all appointments, and always prepared to take care of business. I would recommend him highly – Shannon Ayers Allen.
I had a great experience with Brian Phillips. He is a true professional. As a first time homebuyer, I was very nervous and I had lots of questions about the process. But Brian was patient and helpful. He definitely guided me through the entire process. He found great properties to show me. But what I appreciated even more was his expertise during the closing process. I would recommend him enthusiastically – Ike Uche.
