"We partnered with Philip Hollett to purchase a home and then decided to also have him help us sell our house. Throughout the process Philip (and his team at Sutton) were always accessible to offer advice and suggestions. Philip himself never wavered with his integrity and honesty, as well as his quirky sense of humor. His knowledge was invaluable during the home purchase process and his impeccable research and experience was on target during the sale. Philip's team were very professional setting up our home, showing it in the best light for maximum exposure. We highly recommend Philip and the great people at Sutton." Annette and Michael Bechamp

"More than just a Real Estate Agent, Philip worked with me from renovations through to the final sale of my home. Philip provided valuable assistance in choosing some of the finishes that were used in the renovation of my home, prior to listing it. The attention to detail and the thought that Philip puts into his work is what separates him from the average agent. I'm convinced the only reason I did so well in the sale of my home (nearly 10% over asking) is because of his in-depth knowledge of the market and the way that he markets his listings. In the same month that the news reported a decline in real estate sales of 20-60% and with some houses sitting dormant without any offers, Philip managed to get me multiple offers! I would not hesitate to recommend him!" - Ramona Herman

"We had an amazing experience working with Philip Hollett. This is our second time buying a house under his care and guidance. We were always impressed with his knowledge and experience as we looked through many houses. Because Phil has renovated a house and made a bungalow into a duplex, he has lots of knowledge of costs for renovations, which helps when taking all of that information into consideration when buying. Philip and his team helped us to prepare our house for sale. Our house was staged beautifully and Philip and his team went above and beyond with their generosity and care. I love that all of their clients get the same care and help when preparing to sell, no matter the cost of the house. We have a young child, and Philip was always so patient with her and asked her questions. He was very patient with her when she wanted to show him our house. She thinks that Philip owns all of the houses that we viewed. We would definitely recommend his services to anyone who is interested in buying or selling a house. His care, respect, attention to detail, and years of experience definitely shine through in all that he does. Thank you Philip Hollett and team for ALL of your support and care through this time of looking, buying and selling our home. " - Mike & Mandi Schenk

"We were driving home to Oakville from Niagara Falls and decided to Look in Ancaster (love it) and Philip was hosting an Open House. Philip was very personable and was very informative. We went home and decided to call him to put in an offer to purchase. He came over that evening and we signed the necessary paperwork,we had not listed our home in Oakville. At this point we decided to have Philip handle the listing. He made a few suggestions to de clutter and had a stager come in to our home with a few recommendations. On the day of the interior photos and aerial shots Philip even had WHITE bedding and a huge picture for the wall. He is very meticulous, results unbelievable. When I saw the brochure yes a brochure of our home could not believe it was our home. House sold 4 days, 55 showings and several bids sold with huge $$$ results. once the sold sign up Chantal (lovely, lovely lady) sent us a to do list for the next couple of months up to the day of. Philip and his team are very detailed, understanding, motivated, professional and courteous to emotions you go through selling a house. We love our new home and Philip you are a true gentleman and the word is out...you are the Best.. thanks again" - Rob and Susan McFarlane

"Phil was amazing! First of all, he did a great job outlining the differences between using his services vs. selling our home without an agent. (What a relief; I knew within moments that he was the right choice!) I had total trust in him. He took the stress of out selling and gave us great advice. Phil is professional, courteous, attentive and has a keen eye for detail. His marketing and photography top notch ( awesome aerial shot!) . He produced a beautiful, professional brochure featuring our home and the neighbourhood-- that barely got into any clients' hands as our home sold so quickly! Overall, excellent service and experience. I would highly recommend Phil to my friends and family. What a pleasure! Thank you Phil." - Kim Keresturi

"Where do I begin to express my most sincere gratitude for Philip Hollett? This was our second home purchase and our first listing with Philip and I can tell you with 100% certainty that we couldn't have done it without his expertise and keen knowledge of the current market. Philip was there by our side every step of the way. His attention to detail was impeccable when it came to listing our home and we got top dollar in the end! He helped us with staging and even donated some art to help create the perfect space! He also found us the most beautiful property in Beamsville that we couldn't be more thrilled with! We love our new home and the neighborhood is a real BONUS! We are looking forward to building our family here and creating more wonderful memories. The biggest heartfelt THANK YOU Philip!

"My wife and I highly recommend Philip! Philip was instrumental in finding our new home, and selling our existing home. The experience and insight he provides is incredibly helpful. Philip took the time to get to know us and understand what we were looking for in a home. This made the process of finding our new home to be fun and exciting. It doesn't take long to realize that Philip loves his job as each time we looked a potential home, it was an educational experience for us. When it came to selling our home, Philip had an excellent eye for how the home should be staged which enabled to us to sell our house quickly. Philip is an enthusiastic and honest agent; we were totally impressed." Travis & Barb

"I cannot thank you enough for putting me into all this turmoil!!!! You are a rather rare combination as a sales person in that you are a “soft sell” type. This is the secret to your success. It seems to be working like a charm. I would not hesitate to recommend you to everyone!!! The price you got for the house was exceptionally high for the east mountain. I appreciate every penny of it." - Sandra Connell

"I am happy to recommend Philip as your next real estate agent! My wife Tammy and I were thrilled with his approach and with the quality of service he provided while recently selling our house in Waterdown. His attention to detail, from helping stage the house to the professional quality of sales collaterals, was appreciated. And he stuck to his plan! Most importantly, we got the precise offer we wanted within 5 weeks of listing...we didn't need to panic! He understands the market completely and has a plan from the beginning....nicely done!". - Rod Ward

"Philip helped my Wife and I find the perfect home for us in Hamilton! He was smart, kind, patient and most of all his knowledge base for the area was second to none.

By: Changing cities

I initially met Philip two years ago when my wife and I were considering a move from Brantford to Burlington (to be closer to our grandchildren). At that time he showed us a number of houses in order that we could get a feel for what was available in our price range and to evaluate our expectations. We are retired, already owned a very nice house in Brantford and had somewhat unrealistic expectations of the Burlington market. Therefore this was not an easy task for him. However he persevered and during those two years he continued to contact us and regularly sent links to houses that he felt met our expectations. This was a tremendous help and allowed us to build up a realistic understanding of the complex and expensive Burlington housing market. When we finally decided to take the plunge and sold our house in Brantford, Philip, who we felt had assisted us beyond the call of duty, received our request to find our next house. In spite of the time of year, early December, he quickly found us a house that was perfect for our needs and was within our budget. My wife and I feel that Philip, with his excellent advice, understanding and guidance, has made it possible for us to achieve what we thought was next to impossible and we would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone. We are certain he will not disappoint. Charles and Jean Bruce

“My family has used Philip Hollett to help with both a purchase and selling of our homes. I would highly recommend Philip to anyone, he is professional, prompt and understands his clients needs completely. I valued his opinion of how to present my home to all buyers, knowing we only have one chance to make the best impression. With Philip’s expertise my house was sold in less than 48 hours, and over the asking price." Arlene Reemeyer

By: Selling and moving to wine country!

"We interviewed other agents besides Philip and were impressed with his thorough knowledge of the market, our street and real estate in general. We chose Philip to represent us and our home and found him to be professional, patient and never suggested we do anything in our home that was "over the top". He was always calm and willing to spend whatever time necessary to answer our questions and help us get our home ready for sale. When presenting offers to us he never gave us his opinion unless we asked and always let us decide what was right for us. What impressed us was how professional and thorough he was in marketing our home. The pictures taken were excellent and the materials produced were of high quality and showed our home well. If you choose Philip to represent you, you will have made an excellent choice!" - Craig and Karen Brown

By: Selling

"Philip was a true professional from start to finish. We were reluctant to use a real estate agent to sell our house based on past experiences. Philip used a soft personable approach to show us the benefits of working with him. He was honest and lived up to everything he said he would do. Within an 8 week period we had 2 offers on our home and got exactly what we wanted for the house. We will definitely use him in the future and would recommend him highly. He was the best real estate agent we have ever dealt with." - Ken Chapman

By: Selling and Changing Cities

"We chose Philip based on the relationship we had built with him in our community over the past 6 years. When it came time to sell our home we could not have asked for anyone better to represent ourselves and our home. Under tight timelines he helped us focus on the key attributes that would sell our home. With his guidance, tools and support our home sold in one day. I whole heartedly recommend Philip to anyone lookng to buy or sell a home." - Ellen Watkins

By: Selling and Upsizing

"We worked with Phillip on the sale of our home and the purchase of our new one with outstanding results. Philip was spot on with his advice and recommendations from pricing and marketing through to the staging and negotiations. We were very impressed with his willingness to assist with all aspects of the sale and purchase, providing excellent staging advice and assitance and consistent and timely followups on financing and home inspections to name just a few. He showed himself to be not just an agent whom lists and shows, but someone who actively engages in the entire process, making every effort to ensure things go smoothly and value is maximized. I would without reservation recommend Phillip." - Jeff Gimple

By: Selling

“I’d like to express my complete satisfaction with Phil Hollett as a realtor. Throughout the entire process Phil was professional, conscientious, and motivated. I always felt as though I was his only client. He provided me with outstanding advice about how to prepare my home for sale. I really appreciated Phil's calm reassurance and expert advice throughout the entire process. Phil was the outstanding professional I was looking for and having him work with me made a nerve-wracking negotiation a wonderful success!” - Denise Moxam

By: Selling

"Thank you Phillip for steering me through the sale of my house. As I went through this process, your unfailing courtesy, helpful advice and patience is much appreciated. It was made easier by your professional attitude and sense of humor ( a bonus). In appreciation I am and will recommend your services to friends and neighbours." Thanks again. - June Finn

By: Selling and Moving to the Country

"I would have like to select all of the Top Attributes for Philip Hollett - he has been wonderful throughout the purchase and sale transactions, providing us with excellent advice and service every step of the way. Being new to the re-sale real estate market, we had no personal experience from which to draw and had to be able to depend on our realtor 100%. Philip truly deserved our trust, assisting us with the purchase of a rural property ensuring that we were not surpruised by any unexpected problems in the new house. Even our lawyer's office was impressed that we had done so much work during the purchase to ensure the property was up to our expectations; Philip had provided us with very careful instructions on well, septic and water that apparently are not always done, leaving the buyer unaware of potential difficulties. We felt that he was as much a part of this purchase as we were, even to the point that he drove an hour to the new house on his own initiative to obtain a water sample on our behalf. For the sale of our current house, Philip guided us through the staging process and ensured that our house was in tip top shape. He also set a very realistic expectation on pricing (the final purchase was dead on what he anticipated) and kept us going through this stressful time. It is never fun to have strangers judge your house, but Philip's sense of humour and guidance kept us sane. He certainly has "talked me off the ledge" a few times now - I certainly appreciated his caring approach. I would not hesitate for a second to recommend Philip Hollett." - Angela Healey

By: First-time Home Buyers

"Philip helped my husband & I find our first home. Since this was our first house purchase, we didn't have any idea what to look for in a house. Philip walked us through the process of narrowing our search criteria in terms of location, type of dwelling, price point, age of house, etc. When showing us houses, Philip walked us through pros and cons of each house. It was extremely helpful to have an agent who would pin-point potential replacement/renovation costs (ie. replacing windows, furnace, roof, etc). At the end of the process, Philip helped us find the perfect home in the right location. If we decide to move (which is highly unlikely), I would use Philip's services. Thanks Philip!" - Neena

By: First-time Home Buyers

"As first time home buyers, tired of trying to purchase a new build, and unsure of the home buying process, we met Philip by chance at an open house we attended. Philip made an amazing first impression. He was approachable, professional, and informative, and we quickly learned that our whole experience with him would be terrific. Not only did he make us feel comfortable and knowledgeable about the process, but he also consistently made himself available to accommodate our conflicting and hectic schedules, so that we could attend open houses and walk-throughs. We never felt pressured with Philip, and he made what can be a high stress life experience extremely calming. We thank Phillip for his hard work and the remarkable experience we received with him, and would not hesitate to have him represent us in the future, or recommend him to friends and family." - Lindsey & Jarrod

By: Upsizing in the Country & Downsizing

From always being punctual, trustworthy, consistent and reliable to his knowledge of great workmanship in a home he is by far one of the best in the industry!

Thanks Philip for a great experience again!!" - Linda Maric

By: First Time Buyers in Ontario

Philip came in and made it as smooth and stress free environment, walking us through the entire process from start to finish.

His confidence helped us during levels of stress and his patience is truly valued. We are grateful to have had the opportunity to work with a realtor who makes us feel like his first priority.

We will not hesitate to recommend Philip to all our family and friends, and if we ever buy or sell again, he will be our first contact." - Shoshana & Don

By: Selling in Town and Upsizing in the Country

“I have never written a testimonial about a service I have received before but I feel compelled to do so at this time. My husband and I have had many dealings in the service industries, but none at the level that we received from Philip Hollett. From the first time we met till after the house closing, Philip was exemplary in the personal touch he gave to our transaction. We were pleased beyond our expectations and would recommend him to anybody at anytime !! There was no request that was not taken and acted upon with a professional expertise by him. I would like to say publicly a huge thank you to Philip.” - John & Gail Burda

By: First Time Buyers

".....It’s not every day you put your home up for sale, with Philip’s guidance , suggestions , tips and experience he made what could be a very stressful time much more pleasant and comfortable. Thank you" - Robert and Susan Gough

By: Selling and Upsizing in Oakville

"It’s been a few months since we moved to our new home in Oakville. Philip was really exceptional with the entire process. We had been toying with the idea of moving for over a year and throughout, Philip was patient in educating us on the market and areas of interest. Even when we finally decided to sell, we were still uncertain and as such decided to put the asking price on the higher end. Philip advertised the property like crazy and it sold in 1 DAY!!! Not just that, his exceptional negotiation skills ensured that we closed the deal on a resale home, in the neighbourhood we were looking for, for much less than asking price. My wife is easier than I am to deal with and am usually a bit of a pain because I like to delve into the details and do as much research as possible before I decide – another reason why it took us a year – but hats off to his patience. Overall we are both very impressed by Philip’s knowledge, his in-depth study of his customers to find out what their needs and wants are, his negotiation skills and his experience. I have since recommended him to a few colleagues and continue to do so with people I meet that are in the market. I had a less than average real estate agent before, and Philip is light years ahead of that guy. Give him a call – you won’t regret it." - Mariela and Vikram Chowdhury

By: Buyers New to the Area

We would not hesitate to recommend your services to anyone looking for an exceptional real estate representative. Yours truly," - Mario & Mary Ciriani

By: Sellers Twice and Upsizing to the Country

"This will be the second time that we have used Phillip to sell our home, and he really had his work cut out for him this time, however as I have found out he is not one to back away from any challenge. Our home for sale was very unique,I believe they have a special name for them in the real estate world, "niche". and with our first visit Phillip did identify that it may take a while to find the right people for this home. In the meantime we fell in love with another home, and of course I just had to have it, adding just a little more pressure to the whole situation. All the while Phillip was very professional during the whole process, using every avenue available to him......With all of these wonderful tools our "niche" house sold within four months, we were very happy with our first offer and closed the deal and got our closing date only two weeks after our move to our new home, did I mention that all of this happened while we were on a trip to Peru!! Philip you were and are fantastic real estate agent and we would recommend you to absolutely everyone that is considering buying or selling a house. We also consider you a friend, we do not plan on any more moves but our door is always open to you. Your favorite clients," - Rob and Sue Gough

By: Selling & Downsizing

"It took us over 2 years to decide to sell our home to downsize in preparation for retirement. Once the decision was made, we interviewed several realtors and quickly came to a mutual agreement that Philip was the realtor of choice. His willingness to listen to our wants, acute attention to detail and the tremendous patience he exhibited in all his dealings with us was second to none. From staging our home to negotiating the final sale, which was accomplished in very short order; he was professional, considerate and always pleasant to deal with. We would highly recommend Philip for all of your real estate needs." - Rory and Deb

“It’s been a few months since we moved in and Anthony & I wanted to relay our appreciation for the time you invested, kindness you extended & patience you demonstrated during our search for what continues to be the “perfect” home for us. With the exception of price range & location, we really didn’t have a clear picture of what to look for; your perseverance in asking the right questions combined with your instinct I suspect, really helped us pin down our expectations. You should know that we refer friends, family & business contacts to you without hesitation & wish you all the best in years to come…you never know, if we hit retirement before you, we may very well be your first repeat customer!” - Anthony and Josée

By: Selling in Town and Upsizing to the Country

“Philip worked tirelessly showing us home upon home that might suit, never doubting we’d get it right, and we did. Many miles and hours later! He was unfailing in his efforts to make sure we found exactly what we wanted. I can certainly admit we were demanding, but his unflagging enthusiasm kept us going until we got it right. Our next step was the necessary sale of our house. Philip’s knowledge of the existing housing market in the Waterdown area was extensive, and his own personal commitment to his work convinced us that he was definitely the man we wanted to sell our home. We are still so very happy about that! In the end, we sold above asking in less than 3 weeks, and we are in the process of moving to our dream home. Philip Hollett was INSTRUMENTAL in helping that dream come true. We thank him, we praise his work, and we recommend him to anyone that is looking to buy or sell.” - Lori and Greg

More than that, he takes time to know his client and we very much appreciated his calm, quiet approach throughout what can be a complex and stressful situation. Above all, we appreciated his eye for detail - he repeatedly pointed out flaws or assets that we had missed in prospective houses we viewed. We learned a lot thanks to him. We'd highly recommend Philip." Tony & Donna Carlson

By: Buyers New to Ontario

He is thorough professional, who has deep understanding and knowledge of the area and most importantly, what his clients want... He is very patient, has eye for details and very realistic. His suggestions are clear and precise and never recommends anything which is over the top and not per market. In real estate business, while purchasing a home or selling, important thing is to price it right and act fast. Philip has amply demonstrated all the qualities, me and my wife needed as home buyers and has really helped us to ease all our tension during such an important phase of our lives !

Our lives have certainly been better having had you in them. Thank you." Anne & Sherri McMullen

By: Buying

"Hi Philip: I thought you handled everything very thoughtfully and professionally. You were a good listener to interpret Kerri's needs and wishes properly. There was never any "hard sell" and we became very comfortable with your advice and knowledge of the market, especially pricing. You handled the final negotiations wonderfully, and managed the relationship with the seller, who was handling the deal himself, very smoothly. As well, your recommendation for the home inspection led us to a very competent professional. We would certainly recommend your services for anyone buying or selling a home. Cheers." Paul

You were very patient with my lack of experience (ha, ha) and took the time to explain the process. We saw a lot of homes that weren't quite for me, but you finally found one that is absolutely perfect! Your dedication and conscientious approach to your job truly makes you an outstanding realtor and an amazing person! Thank you so much for everything! All the best, " Mary Barton

"We were very happy with Philip and all he did for us. We had a few mishaps but nothing that Philip did. Everything was beyond his control but he did try to make it better. I was a very nervous seller and he was really good and calm with me even though I got upset with him for no real reason for something that was not his fault. I would definitely recommend him to friends and family. I would not change anything but maybe get him to buy more of the stuff I had for sale LOL. Thanks Philip." Carole Bisaillon

"Phillip made our process on selling and buying our home easier by being such a good listener and had a good feel of what we were looking for. He was always by our side or just a phone call away. We never imagined meeting such a patient and caring individual. He was there through the entire process and strived hard to meet all of our needs. We were very impressed by his knowledge on renovations and design ideas, and gave us good advice on many different occasions. He always took the time to call us, keep us informed and updated us on everything we needed to know. Phillip sold our house less than a month and for more than what we would ever have dreamed of. He knows his business and is a true partner in facilitating the sale in a professional manner. He is respectful to all parties involved. Thank you Phillip for making it your goal to help us find our new home. All your hard work, patience and friendly service you provided. Most important for looking out for our best interest It was a pleasure working with you and I would definitely recommend your services to anyone selling or buying a home." Sabine & Keith Leahy

"As a single woman, the process of selling my home felt like a formidable one. I had heard many horror stories from friends detailing the pitfalls of hiring the wrong agent. It is often difficult to know whom you can trust; besides that, there were so many things that needed attention. Philip made the process smooth, easy, and even pleasant! Most important to me was his trustworthiness, and Philip gave transparent and honest advice but never discounted my wishes and ideas. His attention to detail -from the marketing material to constantly updating me regarding even the slightest inquiry regrading my property- was outstanding! His intelligence in all matters of real estate as well as the psychological nature of buying and selling was a reassuring force throughout the entire process. During negotiations, Philip was calm but firm, always keeping my best interests at the forefront. In a world full of charlatans, Philip is a man of great character; I would highly recommend him and his services whether you are buying or selling your home! In the future, I personally would not consider using any other!" Kim Channon

"First of all I would like to start off by highly recommending Philip as a real estate agent. He is extremely professional and it was clearly evident from the time we first met with him that he had our best interest at heart. He listened to us! And we learned alot from him as well. He is very knowledgeable in today's real estate market which we found to be so helpful. Our plan was to sell our home after living in it for 30 years and downsize. We followed Philip's lead on the sale of our home, and we had a firm offer in the first week. We were thrilled! As a matter of fact, Philip delivered on both sides of the deal! He was able to point out so many things about each house we viewed whether it was something to do with the structure or the neighbourhood, and always made us feel that it was our decision in the end. Never once did I feel that he wanted us to make an offer just so he could be rid of us and make a commission! Because Philip is such a caring person it is evident that he wants his customers to be be happy with their choices. I certainly trusted him in this entire process. In fact our dealings with Philip made me realize that selling and buying privately would never be an option. We made a great team with Philip and would highly recommend him. I know if we decide to move again, we will be calling Philip for sure!" Ann & Dave Smith
