Over the past 18 years as a realtor, I have been fortunate to work with many families as home sellers and buyers, here are some recent comments.
Kim Cobb and Barbara Allen Of 12485 Silver Fox Court:
"When my father died and my sister and I were faced with selling his house with neither of us living anywhere near we needed someone we could trust and Phil was that person. And he never let us down. When I was worrying about the look of our lawn in the fall, I found out he had been blowing the leaves! When I needed to know if the pest control man was doing his job, Phil found out the hard way he wasn't (details withheld). When the time came that we had an offer he negotiated a great deal-even better than we thought was possible! We highly recommend Phil to anyone selling a house." - Kim Cobb
"I agree. I would also recommend Phil to anyone who is serious about selling their home. He has been everything I was looking for in a top producing realtor." - Barbara Allen
Ellen Goldberg Formerly Of 11770 Mountain Laurel Drive:
Your reputation preceded you, and not only did you live up to it, you surpassed those expectations with flying colors! It not often that you meet a 'real professional' and a great marketer. Also, you have the unique quality of making the client feel like they are the only one your dealing with. Your understanding of the market place, and your experience is a huge plus for any seller.
Sincerely , E.Goldberg
Bill and Barbara Scholz Formerly Of 11935 Chaffin Road:
Phil, Barbara and I wish to thank you and express our appreciation for your help selling our house on Chaffin Road. We know that this wasn't easy in this difficult housing market. You were diligent and creative in your marketing effort and pricing, yard signage and the virtual tour.
But you went the extra mile for us doing many things at the house that distance and infirmity prevented us from doing. On a scale of 1 to 10 you rate a big 10.
Your Friends, Barbara & Bill Scholz
Tim and Karen Rigdon Formerly Of 11580 Mt. Laurel Drive:
With my husband already relocated, I appreciated the consistent follow up and never having to worry about what was happening. He was on top of things during the whole process. The prelisting walk through we did before we put the home on the market worked so well. We came up with a list of action items to stage the home. We got the list done and I am sure that brought additional value and saved time when selling. Home sellers in Brookfield should talk to Phil before going on the market for the staging alone, he was the only agent out of four we talked to who recommended and followed through with it.
Paul Kasmar Formerly Of 915 Oakhaven Drive:
We had over 400 prospects take the tour of my home from the web site and as a result a large number of showings, which lead to the positive outcome of my home being sold! Phil and I set the asking price of my home $25,000 higher than another experienced Brookfield agent recommended.
Larry and Kendra Rasche 205 Spearfield Drive:
We sold our home in 20 days for the 98% of the asking price! We could not be happier with the result. We would recommend Phil McDonald as a selling agent without hesitation. We are very satisfied customers. Phil fully met, and in many ways exceeded our expectations.
Richard & Genie Ogden Formerly Of 12505 Silver Fox Court:
His professionalism, calmness in the moving storm and support for his clients surpasses any agent we’ve ever dealt with in real estate (and that would be eight). I can totally and completely say"hire Phil, he’s the best".
C.V. & Stephanie Collier Formerly Of 11750 Mountain Laurel Drive:
We choose Phil to list our home after another broker had it listed. He completely changed the marketing approach, did a virtual tour of the home and put it on all the big real estate web sites. He also highlighted the strength of the Brookfield as a great place to live. We were under contract in 30 days. I highly recommend home sellers talk with Phil.
John & Margaret Wegener Formerly of 140 Brooks Glen:
We interviewed four other agents that had sold in Brookfield and just liked his approach and marketing plan the best. Phil was very honest and upfront with all our dealings, we had a good relationship, he recommended things to do that made a difference in selling our home fast and at a price we were pleased with. He also provided us with an excellent handy man that completed jobs for us. I have recommended him to others, he was there for us and made a big difference.
Johnny & Pat Prutz Formerly of 11775 Mountain Laurel Drive:
Our choice of Phil McDonald as our realtor made our venture in selling our home smooth and ultimately successful. His dedication, experience, and support helped us through a difficult market and on our way.
Charles and Mall Giles Formerly of 12650 Silver Fox Court:
Phil, we just wanted to thank you again for the skillful way in which you handled the sale of our house in Brookfield Country Club. We believe that your negotiations on our behalf along with your knowledge of the business and the area (BCC), really made the difference in getting this house sold in a down market. Great job. We would not hesitate to use you again or recommend you to our friends.
Charles and Mall Giles
Susan Greene Formerly Of 150 Tulip Tree Ct.
Phil, I wanted to write a testimonial to put on your website for the wonderful job you did selling my house. It took a while to sell, but in the current market, you sold it when other houses just like mine had not sold.
The first thing that impressed me about you was that first you did was to educate me on the competition in the neighborhood and the changes (improvements) that would make my house stand out. You had wonderful sources to help me accomplish the goal of making my house more desirable than the competition. You gave me excellent advice on things I needed to do to make my home more desirable and marketable.
You went the extra mile for me in a number of more personal ways. You made emergency runs to my house to see about things when I was at work and could not get away. I remember that you also helped me get limbs out of my pool after a very bad storm and helped me power wash the deck around my pool. You held my hand through the process of the sale and got me through some rough times.
I know that I was not your only client, but you had a way of making me feel like I was the only one. Phil, you are a jewel! I would be happy to act as a reference for others that are considering you to be their agent. Thank you for everything.
Stan Akahoshi Formerly Of 830 Brookfield Parkway
Phil, I just wanted to say thanks for the great job getting my house sold quickly and at a good price. Prior to listing my house I interviewed six agents who provided a range of suggested listing prices that was all over the map. And oddly enough, all of the agents presented numbers and comps to support their recommendation. Your knowledge of the local housing market helped separate fact from fiction and get my house listed at the right price with the right strategy. I also appreciated your making sure all things went smoothly from "on contract" thru closing, especially the inspection and final walk-thru. That was particularly important to me having already relocated out of area and busy in my new job in DC.
Thanks again and good luck! Stan
