Phil can still recall the day that his mother, a single parent working two jobs, signed the papers to buy her first house in Southwest Portland. At the age of three, he adamantly remembers demanding that the swing set in the backyard and box of Hot Wheels be included in the purchase price. From an early age Phil understood the value of negotiating!
After graduating from Wilson High School, Phil went on to attend Eastern Oregon University, where he earned a bachelors degree in Politics and Economics, with a minor in Business Administration. Over the last ten years, Phil has been coaching baseball at Wilson High School, which has given him the opportunity to visit many parts of the greater metro area. Knowing our area combined with his knowledge in economics, Phil is uniquely qualified in the current housing market.
