If you are thinking of selling your home, contact my agent, Phil Lifshin. He is extremely patient and knowledgeable regarding market situations. When it comes to keeping you informed, he does not miss a step. Shortly after listing my home I had multiple viewings and offers. Phil not only has helped me sell my home but assisted me in finding my new home. You won't go wrong. He is the real deal.

Phil Lifshin helped us buy our home in the mid-1990’s, so when it came time to downsize nearly 25 years later we naturally went back to him for guidance in selling it. As with the purchase, having Phil as our agent made for a very successful selling experience. Phil worked with us over a 9-month period covering the full range of issues involved with selling a home. He advised us on improvements and updates that would make the house more marketable and, when asked, provided us with references to contractors for doing the work. He also performed several market analyses on comparable home listings and sales in our area, which was critical for setting a pricing and overall selling strategy. Later, Phil drew on his wealth of experience to advise us on options for staging the property. Once the home was ready to show, Phil produced a beautiful presentation with his choice of photographer, photo package and high-quality brochure. To add a personal touch, he recommended that we include a brief letter in the brochure describing our history with the home. Phil’s marketing generated a quite positive response and several attractive offers in the first two days our home was on the market. A contract was accepted soon after. Phil guided us though the final steps, including buyer inspection and attorney approval, and saw that the closing went smoothly. Throughout the entire process, he was available to address our many questions and provide moral support. We would highly recommend Phil Lifshin to anyone wanting to buy or sell a home.
