Phil acted as my agent when I purchased a home in San Mateo. After asking many questions to understand what I was looking for, Phil started showing me homes which prompted more refining of the types of homes and areas we looked in. Phil was fabulous through this process but his expertise really shined when it came time to place an offer and seal the deal. Phil discovered that there were going to be multiple bids and discussed strategy and made sure I was comfortable moving forward. We placed the winning bid which made me happy, but he didn't stop there. Due to some minor issues with the inspection, Phil was able to negotiate and reduce the price. He never stopped working for me until I was in and happy in my new home. I highly recommend Phil.
