I have had the pleasure of working with Phil on both the sale of and the purchase of a home in the last 8 months. His vast knowledge of the real estate market and home values helped us to correctly price our home in this challenging economic time. We relied on his expert advice in preparing our house for market, and in doing this, were able to sell our home in less than two months of listing. His expertise was invaluable on the purchase end, as he guided me through the complex process of buying my own home for the first time. His patience and support through this process were amazing. He is not the type of agent to 'list you and forget you.' He was working for me the whole time. Thanks again for all you have done! - Jan M.
Thank you for the exceptional job you did in listing, selling and closing the Pebble Beach residence. I have been involved in buying and selling real estate for the last 28 years in transactions that included residences, apartments and land. These sales have been in different parts of the country and in a variety of market conditions. Residence sales have been in the low, medium and very high-end custom markets. After careful reflection, I am convinced that this was the most professional sale with the best results I have experienced in the last 28 years. When I selected you, it was based on a process in which I interviewed five Realtors. I selected you based on the following: 1) You had more extensive knowledge of the local area, market and transactions in my neighborhood. Whereas other Realtors performed a standard comp analysis, yours was more custom and clearly demonstrated that you knew more about the houses, builders, area and terms of the previous sales than any other Realtor I interviewed. 2) You clearly had the most professional and modern marketing approach for a high-end property. Even more impressive was your knowledge of the potential buyer market and your approach to pre-market the property to a base of local buyers. None of the other Realtors could match your marketing approach. 3) You demonstrated excellent knowledge of how to prepare the house for sale and insure all repairs were complete. Your review of the house was the most thorough I've ever experienced. I attribute the buyer's clean inspection report directly to your knowledge of how to properly repair and present the property. 4) Your appraisal background, your knowledge of the area, and your reputation of integrity ultimately enabled us to obtain appropriate value for the property. None of the other Realtors had your professional breadth of experience and technical background. 5) You had wonderful interpersonal and communication skills. You were exceptional in working through various interpersonal issues and getting the transaction closed in a win-win position for all parties. This transaction was a pleasant experience. I enjoyed working with you and believe I received exceptional value for your services. As I sat in the closing and looked at the commission payable, I had a great feeling that I received my money's worth and I absolutely made the correct decision in selecting you and your firm. I look forward to dealing with you on future transactions. - Eugene M.
I am so glad we hired Phil Boren to sell our first home. He was excellent in every way. He was proffesional, punctual, an excellent communicator and a genuinely nice person to work with. Our house sold quickly and we could not be happier with our entire experience. If anyone is looking for an experienced Realtor who will really be there to guide you through the process and get results, look no further than Phil. - Scott and Karen M., Roseville
We have worked with Phil and his team on the purchase of two houses, and we have recommended him to our family and friends because he is one of the most hard-working and conscientious agents in the business. It is important for us to know that our transactions are in responsible hands - and we trust Phil. The only thing he will try to sell you is the opportunity to make the right decisions on your home or property. He has also helped us sell out-of-state property by finding the right agent - saving us money. He and his team are a good resource to have. - Meryem E. and Lee S.
We would definitely refer Phil as a quality Realtor. Phil did everything he said he would, usually within minutes of hanging up the phone. We were out of town during the closing, and Phil made sure we had everything lined up so things went smoothly. There was a high level of professionalism, and he got things done. - Lance & Bobbi
A big "Thank You" for the great job you did selling my home. My futile attempts to market it as a FSBO were a waste of time and money. Your expertise in knowing how to find the right buyer saved me additional time and money. I was so pleased that you were able to get over $20,000 more than I paid - within 30 days of purchasing it - and for cash! I got lots of calls from other agents wanting to list the property, but your team approach and methods of providing customer service were outstanding! - Gary T.
If you want a knowledgeable, intelligent and warm Realtor, Phil Boren is your man. As a newly-widowed gal, Phil worked me through the scary course of putting my home up for sale. Throughout the many home showings, he kept me informed and was skilled at selecting the right buyer for me. I would highly recommend Phil Boren if you are in the market to sell or buy a home in the Granite Bay/Roseville area. - Betty C., Granite Bay
During my 15+ years advising clients on commercial and residential real estate transactions and serving as general counsel to a nationwide real estate brokerage company, I have dealt with many real estate brokers; and I can say unequivocally that only a handful of them demonstrated the level of competence and professional excellence that my wife and I observed in Phil Boren during his handling of our recent relocation and house purchase. As a licensed attorney, I understand the importance of demonstrating excellence with every client contact. Our experience with Phil gave us absolutely no reason to wonder whether our interests were being zealously represented. I rarely give an unqualified endorsement of anything; but I would--without reservation--heartily recommend Phil to my friends and associates, because I am confident that they would be pleased with the level he and his team would provide. - Randy R.
I want to say a big thank you to Debbie Sax. I recently used the professional real estate services of Debbie Sax from ReMax Gold in Roseville, California. I choose Debbie Sax because in past transactions of mine she was very kind, energetic, knowledgeable, and diligent. In my most recent sale which closed this May, she not only maintained that high level of professionalism I had expected, but actually exceeded it. Her diligence and skill in assisting at all stages of the process from staging of the home, conducting many open houses, assistance with the paperwork, and overall quality customer service truly allowed me to sell promptly and at an excellent price. I would strongly recommend to anyone wanting to sell their home to use Debbie Sax. I know I will again in the future. Again, thank you Debbie. - R.J. Enos, Roseville
I can't thank you enough for all your help in advising me on the new house. You were a tremendous help. Thank you for all your time and effort you put into assisting me. If I get a chance to refer anyone to a Realtor - it will be you! - Frankie B.
Debbie, we don't even know where to begin to thank you for all of your hard work to help keep all of our real estate transactions together. You're always such a pleasure to work with, and you were always there to help when we needed you! Thank you for being so caring and such a great person to work with! Let's stay in touch and please tell Phil "Thank You" also for all his help and feedback! - T & M Crawford, Granite Bay
Thank you for all the help and hard work in selling our house. Professionalism, dedication, experience, and all done in a friendly, courteous manner. We appreciate all the great things you did to sell our house in an expeditious manner in a tough market. You will definitely be highly recommended to anyone I know looking for a Realtor. - Keith M.
We just wanted to say how much we appreciate all you did for us in the purchase of our home. You answered all of our questions and concerns quickly and professionally and were always available when we needed. Thank you for going the extra mile in helping us buy the home we always wanted. We would not hesitate to recommend you to any of our friends or family in the future. - Erik & Jan
Thanks for all your help with our potential relocation. You were very kind to spend so much time with us in August as walk-ins, and to have provided prompt and thorough responses to requests for more information. Of all the real estate people we have dealt with on our three houses, you are by far the most competent. Again, thanks! - Jack & Kate
Phil was great walking me through the purchase of my first home. He answered all my questions and was available during some of my random hours away from work. I felt comfortable with him throughout the process and he helped to make the deal go smoothly. I would recommend Phil to anyone that wants a hard-working, loyal Realtor on their side. Thanks Phil! - Katie T.
Reasonable and professional...great communicator. - Richard S.
We just wanted to thank you once again for all your help with our move from Michigan. Thanks to your referral, we sold our house in 4 days and the closing went smoothly. As with our experience with you on the purchase of our new home, we found the agent you referred us to in Michigan to be very efficient, helpful and knowledgeable. Both our experiences with Phil have been pleasant and we would highly recommend you - without reservation - to anyone either buying or selling a home. - Vic & Linda
Phil Boren was our realtor who helped us find the home we are happily settling into. Phil was completely dedicated to helping us find the home that would fit us best, attentively listened to our desires and concerns, gave us excellent advice, encouraged us in our search when we were getting discouraged, and was always energetic and willing to go the extra mile for us. We especially appreciated Phil's assertiveness in making sure our offer was submitted on a timely basis and having the sellers respond within 24 hours, which definitely helped us get the home we wanted! Phil was our advocate from the day we met him and he never hesitated to do everything possible to ensure that the contract included everything we discussed, and even helped us deal with an issue we were having with the buyer of our home. We have bought and sold many homes with different realtors, but Phil is by far the best realtor we have ever had and I would nominate him for a Realtor of the Year award! Phil is the best!! - Debbie D., Fair Oaks
Phil – THANK YOU again for an amazing job enabling Parri and I to sell the Olive Ranch property. I submitted the attached review thru Zillow earlier today. Magdy
“During the past 30 years in Placer county my wife and I have worked with several real-estate professionals to buy and sell several homes. I can say explicitly that the level of competence, contingency planning and professional excellence we experienced with Phil Boren is unmatched. He went to bat for us, communicated frequently every step of the way and we ended up closing on the sale of our home EXACTLY when Phil said we would. This is our second time to work with Phil and we highly recommend Phil to anyone who is looking to buy or sell a home.“ - Magdi & Parri A.
Thank you, thank you, thank you! What can you say about the World's Best Realtor? Seriously, Phil, you really took care of me through this entire transaction and always had my best interests at the center of your focus. From saving a baby rabbit stuck in the window well at a prospective house to breaking down every potential transaction into a palatable analysis, while forever remaining patient while I took my time making a decision -- you always had my back. I know you have an opportunity to work with many people who can afford much more than my budget allowed, but you treated me like a million-dollar client. My little girl and I are so happy with our new home and I will recommend you to everyone I know! - Mary B. (& Maggie)
I would recommend Phil Boren to anyone that is looking for a top quality Realtor. Phil was extremely hard-working and followed up with every item, large or small. He gave my wife and I great advice about the properties that we were interested in and made sure we made informed decisions. Phil is a true professional and we will definitely recommend him to any of our friends and family. - A & K Gonzales, Auburn
