Phil became a licensed, full-time realtor in 1983 after completing a Bachelor of Commerce degree at UBC, specializing in Urban Land Economics and Finance. He is an accredited member of the Real Estate Institute of British Columbia (RIBC), and has owned, maintained, and managed small multi-family rental properties since 1980.
Phil's family history goes back to the early days of Vancouver. In fact, his grandfather worked in the old Hastings Mill Store before it was moved to its new site at the foot of Alma Street in Hastings Mill Park. Phil has lived in Point Grey and Dunbar all of his life and knows many of the residents in the area. Raising a family of three children in this community gives him a heartfelt appreciation for the quality of life that this unique neighborhood has to offer. Although Phil works with properties all over the lower mainland, he specializes in the Point Grey and Dunbar neighborhoods.
