This was the best experience I could have had while selling my home of 15 years! Ms. Edie Phillips went above and beyond from the very start all the way until closing. Ms. Phillips helped us with everything especially finding our next place. She provided a ton of education as it relates to this crazy housing market we’re experiencing. She was always prepared, patient, very resourceful, and absolutely amazing! I couldn’t ask for anything more. I thank God for her existence on this earth! God bless you Ms. Edie Phillips. – Joyia Summers
Edie Phillips is the absolute BEST. I am a first-time home buyer and did not have a clue about any of this process. She helped my husband and I so much throughout the whole process. I reached out just to her, feeling like we weren't ready. She picked up on that just by my tone during our first conversation. I believe she went out of her way to do some things that she'd probably never admit to. Extremely personable and easy to talk to. She's that motivation to keep you going when you feel like you're in over your head. We are so thankful to have been introduced to Edie and now we're homeowners!!!! Edie is awesome at her job, but more importantly, she's a terrific person. – Stacey Green
Edie Phillips was terrific! She helped me (from a different state) and my daughter in Austin find a lovely condo in Austin. My daughter had some special requirements that made it even harder than usual to find a place, but Edie was thoughtful, careful, and so consistently helpful and on the ball that we accomplished it fairly quickly. She has been very helpful with helping us find services to help with the move too. Terrific experience, I can't recommend her highly enough. Five out of five stars! – Sarah Perkins
Edie Phillips was the most thorough, kind, prepared, and diligent real estate agent we’ve ever worked with. Not only would we recommend Edie, but we have, and have worked with her more than once. Our realtor for life. – Gregory Gibson
When my husband and I moved from Austin to another city in Texas, Edie was our realtor. Edie went above and beyond in serving us. She worked with the highest integrity considering all of our needs as we sought to buy and sell a home. Donald and I highly recommend Edie Phillips. – Pastors Donald & Beryl Southall
When we called Edie Phillips to help us navigate the home buying process we weren't expecting to make a lifelong friend. As first time home buyers we had no idea what to expect. Now we're spoiled! I can't imagine anyone working harder to make a client happy. We were thrilled to move into our new home, although we miss seeing her on a regular basis. You'll find Edie to be very professional, but you'll also have a great time in the process. Just writing this fills my heart with love! You are the best! Thank you for all you did for my little family. – Daniel & Leslie Hope
Thank you so much for helping me sell my investment property. You went the extra mile to help me prepare the property for showing and address the various tenant challenges during the process. You always provided great feedback and wise counsel for the different issues that arose including seller negotiations. – Angela G.
I have had the pleasure of using the services of Edie C. Phillips as my Texas realtor for almost a decade now. Living in California and using Edie’s services, I have completed 5 investment property purchases. From canvassing potential areas and properties to completing a 1031 Exchange, Edie was diligent, responsive and assertive in fulfilling my desires. Her customer service attributes and attention to detail are of the highest order. Even on multiple visits to Texas, Edie’s timeliness and patience with showing me areas and properties were both courteous and professional. Edie C. Phillips, Realtor is a resource that you can trust! – K.A. Bacon
Edie Phillips is by far the BEST in the business. Selling or buying a home can be a big ordeal and rather stressful. Edie was pleasant, not pushy, genuine, methodical, honest, and professional. Although I know that we were not her only clients, the level of attention she gave us made me feel that way. She used a variety of sources to market my property, professional photographer, created a website, social media, virtual tour, MLS listing, etc. It was listed on the MLS on a Monday and the very next day I had an offer for the full asking price and buyer paid closing costs. I had no idea the process could move so swiftly and throughout every milestone, Edie was there to ensure we understood what was required. Whether you are looking to buy, sell, or lease, Edie Phillips will take care of you. – Mrs. R. Williams
Edie is a customer's dream realtor - attentive, informative, concise, detailed, professional and timely and an overall advocate for her clients! Edie's approach to sales and real estate had us receiving offers on our home before we could even change the sign from "coming soon" to "for sale"! In addition to that, she worked tirelessly and relentlessly helped us find the right home for us. For a great experience and immediate results, Edie is your answer! – Courtney W.
