Every good realtor must be part mathematical wizard, part logistics expert, part investment advisor, and, probably most important, part responsive psychiatrist. Greg Phillips is all those things and more.
We just had the opportunity to assess Greg's skills when he sold us a Beach Drive condominium and he passed every test with flying colours. He was able to answer all our questions; he returned phone calls and e-mails almost before we signed off; and he was unfailingly upbeat and enthusiastic. We always felt that we were his highest and most pleasurable priority.
It will be our pleasure to recommend Greg not only to our family, but also to our friends.

As we were new to the Island, Greg took the time to help us get to know all of the neighborhoods and find the one that was best for our family. Working with Greg was easily the best Real Estate experience we have ever had. We liked that Greg was not pushy, he sat back and let us make our own assessments and he paid attention to our needs. Greg was aggressive when we needed him to be, negotiating like a true professional and making sure we did not pay more than we should. Greg's calm confidence, sense of humour and easy going nature was very calming and even made the entire process enjoyable.

In 2007 Greg helped us in the sale and purchase of our homes. His guidance and support were much appreciated at what can be a stressful time. His advice helped us ensure that we bought the home that best suited us. His calm strategic negotiation style aided us in getting the best price on our sale as well. In short, Greg was a pleasure to work with and we would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone.

Greg Phillips acted as my Realtor in finding us an investment home in Victoria in May 2007. As a Realtor myself from Calgary and having been in the business for over 20 years it was very difficult for me to enlistthe services of a fellow Realtor as I had many preconceived notions as to how I wanted to conduct my own search and negotiations. I met and communicated with a number of Realtors and was very particular as to who I would feel comfortable with. I met Greg at one of his listings and immediately liked his non aggressive style. Furthermore his knowledge of the many different neighbourhoods really impressed me. He listened to what I was trying to find and in a very short time had zeroed in on a property that perfectly fit all our criteria. His professionalism in all aspects of our real estate experience was greatly appreciated, and I will readily admit that I am not an easy individual to deal with especially as this was an all business transaction as opposed to an emotional one. I highly recommend Greg as an exceptional Realtor who clearly gave it his all in trying to provide us with the ultimate in professional service, thank you Greg.

In my work as a lawyer for the past 12 years, I have had an opportunity to deal with many realtors.
I only learned of Greg in the fall of 2007 and I have to say that Greg stands out significantly compared to the many realtors I have dealt with in the past.
I was dealing with an estate matter and what I thought would be a very difficult sale.
Although I was planning to hire another realtor, I learned that Greg still had the listing for the property. Despite him having a contractual right to the contract, Greg immediately offered to step aside and allow me to hire who I wanted to despite his contract.
Because of Greg’s generosity and what I felt to be a very high standard of ethics, I decided to hire Greg. He had the house sold within weeks through no lack of hard work on his part.
Greg demonstrates continuous professionalism, availability, and sound advice. He is knowledgeable about the market. I would not hesitate to and I do not hesitate to recommend his services to my clients, staff, and friends.

Christine and I aren’t much for writing notes, what with our busy schedules and all, but I felt compelled to sit down today to tell you what a fantastic job you did for our family. From the first moment we considered the sale of one residence in favour of a step up to our dream home, you were there with an unbiased and professional approach to the decision making process.
There are so many things to consider when buying and selling real estate, and at times it’s tough not to get emotions tied to decisions. From our first meeting with you, you always provided such sound and sensible logic, you never steered us in any specific direction, but always provided a thorough and thoughtful analysis of our real estate aspirations.
Beyond our initial decision making process, you went the extra mile when we ultimately decided to sell our old home and purchase our dream home. You did a magnificent job of marketing our old place, the MLS description was fantastic, the website pix were beyond our expectations, and you took the time to provide great exposure to the property. You were always so approachable when it came to potential buyers.
As for your assistance with the purchase of our new residence, you really went above and beyond the call of duty. When it looked like that place might be within our grasp, you were always there with important information, and you worked tirelessly for us securing solid terms over what were quite protracted negotiations. You were always so professional and accommodating, we simply can’t thank you enough.
We plan on living here until our family leaves the nest, but when we are ready for our next property, we’ll be in touch. We wish you continued success in the real estate business, you did a fantastic job for us and will not hesitate to refer you to our friends and relatives. We know you will stay busy.
All the Best,
The McTavish Family
