  • Phillip did an awesome job of showing us various active adult communities in the greater Asheville area. He went well over and above in the time he spent with us. Phillip knows the Asheville area very well and his high level of customer service made our time spent with him well worthwhile.

  • Phillip is the consummate realtor and area host. He knows the North Carolina Asheville area well and gave us the ultimate guided tour through about 5 communities — all in a Sunday afternoon. He was fully prepared, with detailed descriptions of the areas and the homes we viewed. He followed up with additional recommendations based on our comments. My husband and I highly recommend Phillip; he will find you the perfect home.

  • Excellent Realtor. A good listener and dedicated professional...Phillip should be able to help you find just what you're looking for. Am enjoying working with him.

  • Phillip has been a joy for us to work with.......though he might not say the same about us as we have likely been the most difficult clients he has ever worked with! Phillip has worked tirelessly to try to find us a home and community that fits our needs. So far he and we have not been successful but we know that, with his continued interest and with our relocating to the Hendersonville area (temporarily in an apartment), he will find us the perfect place. We would most definitely recommend Phillip to anyone looking anywhere in the area for a home.....he will find it for them and will be a pleasure to work with in the process.
