Brian Phillips

05/21/2019 - Michael McCorkle and Eliot Wilson
Found a tenant for a Multi Family home in Hamilton Heights, New York, NY.
It was a pleasure working with Brian on finding a tenant for our rental apartment. He moved quickly with photography and copy to get our listing live, securing a tenant in just over 2 weeks. We appreciated his personal touch in handling viewings and being available for calls whenever needed.We would happily work with him again and recommend him to others

Found us a home in Spuyten Duyvil, NY
Brian Phillips is a consummate professional. We decided to put our trust in him after interviewing several brokers in the quest to find the right guide for our first time home buying experience. He listened and responded to our numerous questions; he demonstrated a vast knowledge of the market and relationships with area brokers; he was calm and reassuring when we were nervous; and he utilized the extensive tools available to him at Douglas Elliman. When we finally made an offer (after an 8 week search) he negotiated a fair price that was within our budget and then continued to lead us towards a successful board interview and closing. We are forever indebted to him.

• "I am a broker for Christies Great Estates in Connecticut. I hired Brian in the Spring of 2008 to help me and my husband find a condo in New York City that we could buy and rent out then use as a pied-a-terre in the future whenever we visit the Manhattan. We knew Brian worked in Harlem, but we definitely wanted to purchase below 96 Street. As a fellow broker I knew better than to pigeonhole him. Out of all the brokers we contacted, Brian was the most professional and the most responsive; moreover, he did not limit our options like some agents tried to. We were open to looking on the Upper Eastside, Upper Westside, Midtown, as well as Downtown. Brian provided us with comparable sales and rentals of each building we looked in. He explained why some apartments were priced differently than others and which locations are the most desirable. Within a few weeks, Brian found us the perfect investment on Central Park South."

• "Brian is a man of much academic esteem, professional expertise, and personal dignity. He is a trove of information. He is willing to engage in intellectual conversation as he is able -- and those with whom he speaks are better, more rounded individuals for it. His knowledge of the real estate market is among his many areas of strength as there's more than meets the eye. He is intimately acquainted with the neighborhood in which he makes his home -- the architectural styles, homeowners, business owners, landlords, and neighborhood residents. New York City is his domain and passion. What renders Brian, The Mobile Broker, distinct from his peers is his unabashed and unyielding emphasis on integrity. He is honest and reassuring; moreover, he generously affords his time to those that request and need it." August 5, 2010

 Jon Fisher, Prudential Douglas Elliman 

• "Brian is a very conscientious broker, whom I have never witnessed put any undue pressure on any of his clients that I have performed inspections for. I have also not known Brian to misrepresent properties. I believe he tries to fully meet his client's needs and does that in the most respectful way. He does not limit himself to any one area, nor any one type of property, nor any one demographic. I believe that Brian is one of the better brokers in New York City." November 5, 2008

Brian Phillips is the only person I turn to on any real estate transaction. I have worked with Brian on several projects including several sales of property and the leasing of multiple dwellings. In each sale, Brian presented me with highly qualified buyers. In each and every rental, the tenants were well screened and were in place for long terms with no incidents. Brian is the ultimate professional. He is discreet, always well informed and punctual for all appointments, and always prepared to take care of business. I would recommend him highly. – Shannon Ayers-Holden

Sold two Single Family homes in White Plains, NY and a Multi-Family investment townhouse in New Rochelle, NY from 2013-2017.

Brian Phillips is Ah-mazing!! He has rented properties for me and has sold a property for me in a downturned market and has done both within 2 weeks of being hired on each project. The moment he lists the property, the telephone calls and offers come rolling in shortly thereafter. Our property was listed on the MLS on or about September 27, 2013 and 2 open houses later, we were in contract on or about October 5, 2013. Brian, came to us highly recommended from a family member and to date he never ceases to amaze us. In fact, we were so pleased with him that we recommended him to a neighbor (across the street from our home that he listed) and he hired him to sell his home and it was in contract within less than a month of being listed. Brian is knowledgeable about the market and he is masterful at pricing a home for sale and/or rent. I can't say enough great things about Brian Phillips. He is our go-to Realtor! – Kerrie Williams

Found a tenant for a condo home in 2017 in Harlem, New York, NY.

Brian did a great job in renting out my apartment. He gave strong guidance on pricing, got professional pictures taken and he gave near real time updates. The customer service I received from Brian and his team was exceptional. He is the best broker in Harlem in my opinion. – Les Jean Pierre
