Phil purchased his first property in 2010 in Norfolk, VA while honorably serving in the United States Navy as a Naval Special Warfare Combatant Craft Crewman (SWCC). While he enjoyed jumping out of planes, shooting machine guns, and practicing small unit tactics with Navy SEALs and other Special Operations Command operators, he realized in that first purchase that real estate was something he had a passion for and committed to pursuing it further when his time in the service was over. He took a real estate license course while still in the Navy and upon separation from service in 2012 immediately went to work selling his buddies from his old unit homes as they transferred to Virginia from other duty stations.

Upon working with a real estate investor, Phil recognized the opportunity to capitalize on his new skill set and began flipping houses with one of his Navy teammates. 5 years and 30+ flips later, he was ready to create real wealth and dove head first into his first multi family acquisition, a 13 unit property in Norfolk. One year and over 200 units later, he is a full time multi family acquisitions specialist. Phil prides himself on creatively finding win win solutions for complex problems, and credits his time in the military with his tenacious no quit attitude and commitment to teamwork and delivering on his promises as a buyer.

Because he absolutely loves what he does and wants others to experience the joy of walking the path to financial freedom, Phil accepted a position as a Senior Mentor with The Michael Blank Organization and the hours he coaches and helps other investors are some of his favorites every week!

On this episode, we talk about:

  • How you go from the military to 200+ units
  • Lessons learned in first deal mistakes
  • How you can learn from having a business partner
