Success By The Numbers

Perhaps the best testimony to the success of the firm is not anything we would say, but by what the market has said. 16 short months after our first closing, the sub prime crisis of 2007 began. Within a year the financial meltdown was destroying Wall Street and the housing market crashed. It was the worst time to be in the real estate brokerage business since the Great Depression.

Through that chaos, the firm grew through astute decisions, knowing how best to serve the clientele, and without the help of outside investors. By 2014, the firm had expanded to three offices and we now have over 80 dedicated licensed professionals to serve you. 2016 was our first $100 million year of closed volume, and we are now the largest independent Westchester or Putnam-based real estate broker by sold units.

You can rest assured that in working with a J Philip agent, you’ll be treated like family. We have built the brand with happy clients, and we intend to keep it that way.

The numbers tell the story.

Success Stories

As a licensed real estate agent in another state, I was not able to list my mom’s house in NY. I interviewed several realtors and was extremely impressed with Phil’s knowledge about the real estate market and trends. We selected Phil because he is a true real estate professional. His knowledge and commitment to the client were equal to none. He is very thorough, detail oriented and always responded to questions in a timely manner with good sound advice. He offers services for example staging consultation that other realtors would charge for to assist with the sale of the house if needed. Phil does his best to realize the highest sale price on the property and ensures the transaction goes as smooth as possible. Phil’s effort, energy and commitment went above and beyond what was expected. Not only were we happy with the outcome but at the end of the transaction we felt we had made a friend for life! We HIGHLY RECOMMEND Phil as your real estate professional.
