My Business Philosophy
"Not your typical
real estate broker."
I'm Jonathan Phillips, Principal Broker
with Phillips Realty in Tacoma, WA .
First I want to thank you for visiting this
website, and for letting me act as your resource
to real estate knowledge and information.
Allow me tell you my philosophy regarding real
estate. This is the distillation of over 20
years of experience helping people to sell and
purchase their homes . Most of that experience
was positive, although some was not.
All of it was instructive .
In case you missed it on the Home page, here are
the two similar but vastly different
perspectives that I have seen people experience
in real estate:
" Selling your home is a financial
with important emotional considerations."
" Buying a home is an emotional decision
with important financial considerations."
I believe that selling your home or finding and
buying that dream home you are searching for
should not be filled with stress. It often is,
but it does not have to be.
In fact, selling or buying a home should be fun!
It can be if you know how. The trouble is, most
people are not experienced in the process of
marketing or buying real estate (how could you
be? How often do you actually do it?)
Most sellers will sell one, two, or perhaps four
or five homes in their lives.
Most buyers in the market now have never bought
or sold a home before.
That is simply not enough experience to 'fly
solo' in your own transaction in the
highly-technical, legally-binding, and
emotionally volatile world of real estate sales.
I do not believe that you should spend the next
20 years learning what I did through formal
education and 'hard knocks'.
Fortunately, you don't have to. I am ready and
willing to help you to achieve your goals
without being stopped by the inevitable
obstacles and challenges.
My function as your Real Estate Broker is to
give you the benefit of my 20 years of
residential and commercial real estate
experience, so that you can concentrate on your
goals, needs, and dreams, not the ‘nuts and
bolts’ of what it takes to successfully complete
a real estate transaction.
YOU ARE UNDER NO OBLIGATION WHEN YOU SPEAK WITH
ME ABOUT YOUR REAL ESTATE QUESTIONS. There are
no ulterior motives on my part, and I am not
waiting for the best moment to 'spring' the
latest sales pitch on you, or simply wear you
down with endless talk or 'scripts' that some
agents go to $1000 seminars to learn.
Life is too precious to waste that way.
not want to be treated that way either.
You should not be bombarded with sales calls ,
hounded to make or accept offers, or fail to
receive the highest level of personal service
that you deserve, just because some
'salesperson' needs to make money.
I do not treat people with such disrespect,
whether they are my clients or not.
I structure my service to YOUR wants and needs,
not to a desire for business.
You define how much and what information you
need and how to be contacted (email, telephone,
fax, in-person), and that's how our relationship
will take place.
This is why my clients have asked me to tell you
that I'm "Not your typical real estate broker."
Thank you for visiting this site, and for
reading this long page. I appreciate your time
and consideration, and your trust. I know that
you have literally thousands of choices in the
real estate marketplace, and I'd like to thank
you for considering my services.
