Selling with Phil has been a very rewarding experience in every way. He is totally reliable and fastidious in regard to detail. Despite his total professionalism he is great fun to deal with. We offer our highest recommendation for Phil both as a person and for his marketing ability based on his many years in the business.”

“The decision to use Total Realty was two fold.... Firstly, Phil is a stand up guy and I trusted him to have my best interest in mind... Secondly, the lower commission rates were definitely inviting. From the very beginning of my Total Realty journey I felt that Phil had my best interests in mind and I could trust his advice. Though the sale was not as straightforward as I would have liked, Phil was always just a phone call and an explanation away. I would 100% sell with Total Realty again.”

Since I was an out of town seller I relied on Phil to pick up keys, appraise the property, liaise with carpet cleaners and house stagers, run the open homes and handle the hand over to new owners. I highly recommend that you list with Phil. Total Realty is a lower cost agency but not a low service one.”

He never seemed phased with coming out after our kids were in bed. Phil never gave us unreal expectations about price and also he gave us great information regarding what we needed to do and didn't need to do to sell the house. He worked with each offer easily and with a minimum of fuss and took all our comments seriously. Finally he got us what we were wanting for our house and handled the offer and then the contract etc efficiently even though it was right on Christmas! Cheers Phil for a great service”

We enjoyed being in control of the sale process and having an agent who always worked for our benefit and having our best interests at heart.”
