Wichmann Family

WichmannI am so happy we had Phil to walk us through our first home buying experience.

We handled everything remotely and it was a breeze! Phil is very knowledgeable about the area and his actions and dedication to making sure everything went smoothly clearly demonstrate his commitment to customer satisfaction. 

The wealth of information he provides ensures you understand the process from start to finish and he was always available to answer questions.

Phil and his wife definitely went above and beyond to make the process pain free and make sure we got settled into our new place.

McArtor Family

McArtorWe bought our house sight-unseen and we felt comfortable doing so with Phil as our realtor. Phil and his team were in constant contact with us since we had a short window to purchase. Every single day I was getting a phone call or email with updated information about the market, the area we were looking at, as well as tips and guidance in reference to being first time home buyers.

Phil and his wife went to multiple properties for us and he always gave us his honest opinion. I think what impressed me the most about the whole experience is that he could have sold us a home earlier on in the process, but he stuck it out and found us exactly what we needed.

I cannot say enough about how pleasant my experience was and how much of the stress Phil and his team took out of this process.

Jasmine & Arif Carey

Jasmine and Arif CareyWe had a great experience with Phil. At the time we had already had a realtor and was not currently looking but we came across him on Facebook by a recommendation from his team. We ended up letting our realtor go and went with Phil. It was his experience and knowledge of not just the market and the   area but on homes and maintenance that sold us.

Phil is extremely familiar with Washington and knows a great deal about homes. What you will find with phil and not someone else is that he will take the time to point out the good and the bad when showing you homes. If he finds something that needs to be fixed or notices the roof is in bad condition he will tell you he won't hide it just to make a sell. He is really helpful when it comes to explaining to you what type of floors the house has, how to work the fireplace, or will just give advice on upgrades you could do. He is more than willing to recommend other professionals and will answer any questions that you have. Best of all, communication is great. He answers calls, emails, and will text you back!

Turnbull Family

TurnbullSuper helpful! Phil and his team helped us narrow down the perfect neighborhood, then the perfect home for our family.

He followed us through the loan process and even brought a house warming gift after we settled in.

Our home is absolutely perfect!

Owens Family

Jennifer OwensWe placed an offer on our home site unseen, Phil was very helpful in guiding us on making the right choice. Phil was always helpful, responsive, and supportive during our home buying process! The whole process seemed stress free thanks to Phil.

He definitely knows his stuff and his experience in this business was very helpful! Thank you!

Reiter Family

Reiter 2016As first time home buyers, everything was new to us! Phil helped us with every single question that we had and gave us his honest opinion.

He knew the best neighborhoods and did his best to find homes that met all of our needs!

He kept us in the loop the entire escrow period, as there is a lot that  needs to be done during that time!

When we decide to move again, we will without a doubt be going to Phil!!

Pusztai Family

PusztaiWe reached out to Phil before our cross-country PCS move this spring. We were encouraged by the fact that he is a military veteran and served many years at Joint Base Lewis-McChord, where we were being stationed. From the beginning, Phil and his team were very responsive. We discussed what we were looking for, where to live and where not to live and our budget concerns. Phil was incredibly honest in his responses through the entire process, with none of the “salesmanship” I expected from a realtor. We would send him properties we saw on Zillow and his team would investigate them and also come back to us with a report on that property as well as other options in the areas we liked that we hadn’t found.

Phil and his team worked tirelessly for us. Email responses were prompt, phone calls were answered or quickly returned, and his use of digital signatures made everything incredibly easy as a buyer. We learned to trust Phil a great deal and his advice and candid responses to our concerns led us to buying our home, sight unseen, while we were moving across the country. He negotiated a deal with sellers who had explicitly listed they did not want to work with a realtor. They ended up working very willingly with Phil. When we arrived at our home, it was everything we thought it would be and more.

Phil’s honesty about the property meant that I knew about the flaws and issues that every home has and my trust in Phils opinion of the property was well placed. We truly couldn’t be happier with our experience with Phil and with our home. If we decide to sell, and Phil’s still in the business, he will be the first person we call.

Perdue Family

PerduePhil and his wife Gail were absolutely amazing! This was our first home purchase and my husband and I were very nervous due to being in the military and not having family near by for support and guidance. After our initial meet with Phil we knew that he was not helping us just to get a sale but he was looking out for our best interest and best investment.

Not once did we feel pushed to make quick decisions, in fact he encouraged us to take our time. He was there for us for questions all hours of the day whenever we needed him.

His office staff were great at assisting the process by emailing us on daily postings that fit our search. Our experience with Phil, his wife and staff was nothing short of amazing and we highly recommend him as a realtor.

Our family may be across country but with an honest and helpful realtor like Phil it's hard to be the least bit worried about having trustful guidance.

The Moore Family

MoorePhil really went above and beyond for us in our search for a home. My husband was relocated with the Army to Tacoma, WA. We knew nothing about the area, but we wanted to purchase our first home. I found Phil on facebook and began communicating with his team. Shortly after I began communications with them we started our pre-qualifications with USAA. USAA assigned us an agent with their movers advantage program and I apologized to Phil’s team that we’d be going with someone else. Even after this news, Jen from his team still sent us a relocation package with info on Washington and a book about VA loans and offered their help regardless.

Fast forward a week or so later and my husband and I decided to find a different place to get pre-qualified. The agent USAA assigned us wasn’t even willing to talk to us until she knew what we qualified for. So I contacted Phil’s team. We put all our trust in him, went through a recommended lending company and we began discussing what we were looking for in a home. We did many things by e-mail because we were in Nevada. His team and him were quick to respond and made our home buying process a breeze.

Spontaneously my husband and I decided to drive 13 hours to Tacoma where we met with Phil and looked at several properties. We only had a day in Tacoma before we had to drive back and Phil gave us his undivided attention. We made one offer and got a house that had multiple offers. Without Phil’s vast knowledge of real estate, we would never have obtained the property.

What was most important to us was Phil’s honesty. We have a baby and wanted to live in a safe neighborhood. Phil was honest to us about which houses were in good neighborhoods vs. not so good. He gave us his opinion when asked and was such a resourceful tool when buying our first home.

Him and his wife were very welcoming and were so kind to us even after the completion of our purchase. I would recommend Phil to anyone I know, military or not. You will not meet a more helpful and kind Realtor.

Hasan Family

Hasan PicturePhil, his wife, Gayle, and the whole Phil Sharp Homes team were a joy to work with from the start. Before we even arrived in WA to look at homes, the team had already been in contact with us to determine what kind of home we were looking for and also sent us several listings for us to "like" or "dislike" to narrow down our tastes. Phil and Gayle were very flexible with our schedule, and made it easy to look at homes by picking us up each morning and being very considerate of the time we spent or didn't spend in each listing.

Once we decided on a home to buy, Phil really went the extra mile for us by giving us advice on making an offer and the purchase process and really listening to our concerns. He also checked in on us regularly during the process to make sure we were doing okay and if he or Gayle could help us in any way. Not only was this a wonderful way for us to purchase our first home, it was a wonderful way to be welcomed to Washington State!

The Graham Family

Graham PictureWe initially began our search for a home from out of state and with another Realtor. Unfortunately, we did not receive the much needed help and guidance that we were looking for. In addition to being first-time home buyers and moving from out of state, we had a very short window to find and close on a home. Feeling frustrated and discouraged, we stumbled upon Phil Sharp. His office had a relocation packet to us within just a couple of days and began searching for possible homes based on the detailed information acquired by asking us just the right questions. With their help, we were able to narrow our search down to a manageable number.

Sympathetic to our time crunch, Phil and his wife dedicated a whole weekend to helping us find a home. We drug them to at least 20 houses in one day, all the while receiving a wealth of information on the area, the military base, the housing market, and what we should and should not be looking for. With Phil’s help, we found three homes that we really loved, in that one day. The next morning, together with Phil and his wife, we went back to two of the homes and were able to make a decision. Having to leave the area, again, we felt a little worried about trying to close on the house. However, Phil and his team reassured us that we could get it done. He stayed in constant communication with us and went out of his way to help in any way possible.

Without Phil’s experience, knowledge, and dedication, we might have, once again, delayed our efforts on buying a house. While Phil and his team are the most logical choice for military members looking to buy a house in this area, the experience and sound advice they offer to home buyers proves to make them the most sensible choice for any and every one.

Courtright Family

CourtrightI contacted Phil from Hawaii about 2 months before I was scheduled to move to Washington, right away he sent me a package of very useful books, magazines, maps, and some great information about all the local schools, shopping, drive times etc... He put me in touch with a great lender. His team then started contacting me about all this things we wanted in a house, and they provided me weekly updates of the homes coming available.

Once I arrived it was game on, he and his lovely and very friendly wife picked us up from our hotel, and they were loaded for bear. With a stack of houses to look at, we were off and running. He knew our tastes and showed us about 3 dozen over the course of 4 days, until we walked into the one we wanted. It had only been on the market 1 day, but Phil pounced and that place is our new home.

Phil didn't stop there, he has continued to stay in contact to make sure all of our needs have been met to our satisfaction. I mean he's already been paid, yet he cared enough to spend more time checking on us.

I highly recommend him and his team of professionals!

Williams Family

Williams Family JBLM Fort Lewis Real EstateWe were very happy with our experience with Phil Sharp. As first time homebuyers and relocating from the opposite side of the country, we were a little anxious about buying a house. But Phil and his team did a great job easing our concerns. Shortly after we contacted Phil and explained what we were looking for, Stephanie (his transaction coordinator) began sending us weekly listings that fit our criteria. By the time we were ready to visit the area and look at the houses (which we only had two days to tour the homes and make a decision), we had a nice list of homes compiled that we were interested in. Phil and his wife Gayle were very efficient at showing us all of the houses we liked (I believe we saw about 27 homes during those two days). They were very knowledgeable about the homes and the area. We found a great house and the negotiations went smoothly for us. Phil even attended the inspection for us since we were unable to be there. We really had a great experience working with Phil Sharp and his team and are happy in our new home!

Garcia Family

Garcia FamilyPhil and Gayle went above and beyond the duties of typical realtors. Their dedication to my wife and I during our search for a home was unmatched. This is my second home and the difference between my two realtors was night and day. Their knowledge of the areas surrounding JBLM was excellent and they provided useful insight that directed us to the area that suited our family best. Phil’s knowledge not only of real estate but also of building construction and codes helped us avoid several problem houses and saved us thousands of dollars. Stephanie, Phil’s assistant was unrelenting when it came to searching for new leads on homes in our price range that fit our needs. My wife and I would highly recommend Phil and his team of professionals to anyone searching for a new home!

Sims Family

Mission: Satisfied Customer - Complete!

I recently moved with my large family (Mom/Dad + 3 young kids + grandparent) to the Olympia-Lacey area after nearly 12 years of military life abroad, and 20 years after our last home purchase. Phil Sharp and team were recommended to us by a colleague, and I can say without reservation that Phil's team was the single best resource for our both our successful home purchase and integration into the area. Phil leads an incredible team that includes his lovely wife Gail and his assistant Stephanie. We could not have asked for a nicer or more qualified group to assist us.

We fully acknowledge we had special, "high-maintenance" requirements -- we wanted a pet- and livestock-friendly rural setting within certain school districts, while also having quick access to services and a reasonable commute time. Our needs changed even more at the last minute, as we took in an aging extended family member. Phil and his team took it all in stride, researching and filtering behind the scenes to find candidate properties well in advance of our arrival. They were especially internet-saavy, providing us a nice web-based tool that allowed us to review, discard, and "favorite" potential properties. They kept us updated regularly through email and phone. In hindsight, we were able to do 80%+ of our shopping and research prior to arrival.

Once we arrived after a long international flight, Phil and his team were prepared for us to hit the ground running the very next day. After just two days of property visits that mostly confirmed what we'd already reviewed online, we were able to settle on an ideal property that met all of our special requirements and more, and at a price that was well within our range. He advocated for us throughout the financing and closing process, resulting in a lightning-fast closing time. We were impressed with the constant communication, his common-sense approach, his organization, and his sharp attention to details. Phil's team definitely moves at "internet-speed" (many still do not) and is well-connected online within social media. Phil has fully transitioned to the new online real estate market.

In addition, we got to know Phil as a seasoned regional expert with career experience both within the military (retired Army First Sergeant) and successful local businessman.  He gave us top-notch advice at every step on issues beyond simple home buying and ownership -- home maintenance, school considerations, contractor recommendations, farm and garden, shopping, and more. HIs trusted "life lessons" are serving us well as we adjust to our new life in the Pacific Northwest, and re-adjust back to living in the United States.

In closing, our family recommends Phil Sharp Homes in the strongest terms, for either military or other career-oriented families seeking the highest quality real estate options and representation in the Lacey, JBLM, or greater south Puget Sound region. We will certainly seek him out again for our next real estate need, whenever that might be.

The Miller's

The Millers purchased a great deal on a Foreclosure in Yelm JBLM Fort Lewis Real EstateOur family purchased a home in Washington while still living in Germany with the help of Phil and his associates. We wanted nothing more than to have a beautiful house waiting for us when we arrived at our new duty station. Buying a home "sight unseen" is not a recommended way to go about the process, but Phil and his associates made it worry-free. They were our eyes on the ground! Every question we asked was promptly answered and detailed information about every home we were interested in was provided to us. When we finally found a promising house, Phil was more than happy to visit the home repeatedly and take loads of pictures to send to us. We had a few hiccups with the seller along the way and Phil was not afraid to put his foot down so that we would not get taken advantage of. Now that we are living in the home, Phil and his team are still at the ready for anything we may need. I have worked with other realtors and I can say the knowledge, the advice, the guidance, and the overall concern for your best interest Phil's team displays is unbeatable.

Thanks again Phil!

Ramos Family

The Ramos Family 640x480 2Buying a house while living overseas can be such a stressful experience but Phil made it so easy. We set up a list of potential houses for us to familiarize ourselves with the market so we knew exactly what to expect when it was time to look at houses. He also helped us find a local lender that exceeded our expectations. I would definitely recommend Phil Sharp to anyone looking to buy or sell their house, he was very knowledgable, not just about the housing market but also about home ownership. We appreciated his advice when viewing potential homes and he definitely helped us pick the right house for our family. He was a joy to work with and even though I cannot imagine selling our house now, when the time comes, we will most definitely be calling Phil Sharp.

Mike Dequevedo in Steilacoom WAJBLM Fort Lewis Real EstatePhil Sharp helped me find the my perfect home in 4 days!  When I moved to Joint Base Lewis McChord (JBLM), I wasn’t sure if I was going to rent or buy, but after talking with Phil Sharp, I felt very comfortable with buying a home.  Phil took the time to understand my wants and needs and showed me several homes in my price range close to JBLM.  Once I decided on my house, Phil helped me along the entire purchasing process and I am now a happy home owner.  With years of experience, Phil thoroughly understands the real estate market.  Easy to work with and committed to helping military members.  Thank you Phil.”
