Buyer Testimonials

Phillip was an outstanding agent for us


"Phillip was an outstanding agent for us. We were new to the area and had a long list of requirements about the type of neighborhood, walkability, type of house, proximity to highways, etc. Phillip absorbed it all and understood just what we wanted. He never pushed us to go after a neighborhood or house that we didn't love, even though the market was really competitive. And when the right house came along, he told us it was time to move on it fast. We love our new home and it was the very first house that we bid on!

Phillip's knowledge of Seattle and real estate was just the beginning of how he helped us. He also had a great understanding of financing, had a great relationship with listing agents, and knew how to write a great offer letter. I didn't realize just how important that was until I saw a copy of the competing offer that we beat out. The offer that Phillip wrote was just so incredibly professional, and that describes every interaction that we had with him. If we ever need to buy another house, there's only one phone call that we will need to make." - Ravi


Philip was fantastic


"Philip was fantastic. As first time home buyers, we had a lot of anxiety about starting the buying process and weren't terribly excited about finding a Realtor. Phillip was recommended to us by friends who had recently worked with him and we couldn't have been happier with how the well the process went. Philip was friendly, knowledgeable, available and patient throughout the experience. We felt that we had solid guidance and representation as soon as we began working with him and have already recommended Philip to others." - Greg & Raleigh


Informative and thorough


"Phillip helped us with the purchase of our first home. Once we met Phillip he earned our trust quickly with his honest and warm professionalism. So many things set him apart from, and above his colleagues. Phillip is informative and thorough. He made it clear from the beginning that educating his clients throughout the home-buying process is important to him. Phillip was exceedingly attentive, patient, and responsive to our needs. It’s not that we think we couldn’t have found our new house without Phillip; we know that there are many capable real estate agents out there. But Phillip receives awards and high recognition from his colleagues and industry with good reason, and we were lucky to experience and understand why firsthand." - Thuy and Matt


Positive and enjoyable


“Working with Phillip was the highlight of my purchase. His dedication to finding me the right place to call home was admirable. His work ethic is exemplarily; his level of integrity is inspiring and most importantly his sincere commitment to his clients is commendable. His knowledgeable advice on neighborhoods and property value allowed me the confidence to find a great place in the pulse of the city. Through his guidance and poised direction my transition was so smooth. I cannot imagine going through this event in my life without him. The experience was so positive and enjoyable, I highly recommend Phillip to friends, family and colleagues.” - Sandra


Commitment and dedication to finding the right property


“Phillip's personal commitment and dedication to finding the right property for me paid off in less than a month. Even when my own vision of the right property for me changed, house vs. condo, Phillip never wavered or flinched. Instead, he switched his focus quite easily and found the perfect property for me. He matched me with a lender and an escrow company and the deal was completely seamless and stress free. I would highly recommend Phillip to my friends, family and business associates. His integrity, honesty and commitment to his clients is often hard to find in a real estate agent and his friendly attitude eliminates the stress that so often accompanies buying a home.” - Cheryl


I would unreservedly recommend him


"As a first-time buyer, I had quite a few concerns about the entire process of selecting an agent who would be my advocate, help me in my search for a home, and navigate the myriad paper hurdles and forms that separated me from my goal. I was just lucky to have Phillip suggested to me. He was approachable, always available or quick to respond if temporarily occupied, told me everything I wanted to know in addition to other things I didn't know enough to ask. He took into account the features I was looking for in a property, and while producing many good property listings for me to peruse, I also appreciated the fact that he gave me tips about listing directories to search on my own, since I was interested and had some time to spend on the search. I never felt hurried or pushed, but certainly was tenacious at speeding other parties along when appropriate. Phillip was very knowledgeable about all steps in the transaction, and although they were never necessary, he had a plan for all contingencies. I would unreservedly recommend him to friends and strangers looking for an agent to help them with this complex process." - Patrick


We can't recommend him highly enough


"As first-time home buyers, we weren't sure what to expect when we began looking at real estate. Phillip was an exceptional help, going above and beyond to explain the process and answer all our questions, large and small. He was sensitive to our needs and priorities, and he moved quickly and was incredibly responsive, offering us counsel that proved invaluable at each step. He made an intimidating process seem simple, and we can't recommend him highly enough." - Sumeet & Torea


We knew we were in good hands


"When we found out we were moving to Seattle from LA, we were concerned about the difficulty of finding a quality agent in an area we were unfamiliar with. After meeting Phillip during our second visit to Seattle, we knew we were in good hands. His warm demeanor and extensive knowledge of the Greater Seattle Area put us at ease. Through the entire process, he has been professional, thorough, one step ahead of us on everything and really took the time to get to know us and what we wanted to make sure he could find us the perfect home for our family. We would have been lost without him and so happy to have him as our agent and new friend. Thanks for everything, Phillip!" - Tiffany


This was extremely helpful


"Phillip was a fantastic help to me. I was coming to Seattle from out of state and he was attentive to sending me current listings in several different neighborhoods so that I could see what was available and get the feel for those locations. Once I found just the right house, he was meticulous at walking me though every detail of my real estate transaction. This was extremely helpful since I was unfamiliar with laws in the State of Washington. Phillip definitely helped to make my move seamless and fun." - Toni


Phillip is best in class


"Phillip is best in class - not only did he help me find and quickly close on the right home, he took care in ensuring my move went as smooth as possible. Phillip closes deals expeditiously - taking time to explain the risks without sacrificing the speed necessary to get a deal done in this hectic market. As a new home buyer, Phillip clearly and patiently explained every step in the process and I felt like I had a trusted friend that was advocating on my behalf. Phillip even helped me find a dog walker in my new neighborhood! Phillip's real estate and financing expertise coupled with his personal touch really set him apart." - Chris


I would recommend Phillip


"Phillip has helped me buy 4 properties in 3 years. My purchases are a testament to his courteous prompt and effective manner. I would recommend Phillip to anyone who needs to buy in the Seattle metro area." - Lavina


The very best


"A few months ago, we bought our first home and Phillip Belenky was there with us through the whole process. We'd heard about Phillip from a number of friends who said he was "the very best", and it turns out they were right! We were so impressed from Day One: he took time to sit down and get to know us and really understand what we were really looking for in a home and in a neighborhood. He listened to our concerns, was incredibly prompt and timely with all communications, and helped negotiate the close of our dream home for us. The house we found was a bit of a stretch for us, but with Phillip's guidance and advice, it became a reality. We feel really lucky to have had the chance to work with Phillip, and know that we will contact him again with any future real estate needs." - Megan
