Real Estate Consultant

Meet Phil Devin

For Phil, real estate is a passion, hobby, job and career. He was born into it (his father was a real estate agent).

Growing up, I learnt from my father how to sell real estate ethically and honestly. He was a trusted man, so much so, Valuers, Developers and Consultants looked to him for advice, information and his opinion on anything from values, trends and property cycles.

So with a bloodline in real estate and a professional career previously in sales and management Phil pays homage to his father by being the Principal of a agency that is committed to being ethical, honest and true to its word.

Phil has been a fully licenced Real Estate Agent for over 12 years. He use best practice systems and processes, and understands the buying habits of today’s most discerning property buyers and by proactively and strategically marketing properties, he will get the best price in the market.

Phil is actively involved in community service by being a Board Member of a private school and is the founding Chairperson of the Brisbane Central Volunteer Area Committee of Crime Stoppers.
