Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $250K in Gainesville, FL.

Mr. Phillips expertise helped make our house buying experience a pleasure. His responsiveness to our questions and his knowledge of the property was appreciated. We would definitely recommend him to our friends.

Bought a home in 2014.

Ben was my realtor for a home I built in a highly sought after neighborhood. He's very knowledgable about Gainesville and the various builders in town. He kept me sane during the building process and was always available via phone/text/email to help resolve issues I had with the builder. I would highly recommend Ben without hesitation.  More Less

Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $200K in High Springs, FL.

BEN helped my Husband and me find a new home in Jan 2013 and he was very patient and understanding. We had a 99 yr old Father to consider in the move so it was a tedious process.
