We endorse J. Philip Faranda, broker/owner of J. Philip Real Estate

Real Estate Agent with Douglas Elliman Real Estate

We endorse J. Philip Faranda, broker/owner of J. Philip Real Estate.

Whenever I am referring out a customer of mine I always ask myself this question, “Does this agent pass the mom test?” If my mom was buying or selling a home in this person’s area of expertise would I feel comfortable giving this agent my mom as a buyer or as a seller?

I can say 100% with absolutely zero doubt that Phil Faranda passes the mom test.

If my mom was buying a home for sale in Westchester County I would sleep well at night knowing that Phil Faranda will be representing them throughout their transaction.

When looking to give a referral I want to know the agent I am giving the customer is first technically capable of handling the transaction.  Do they know their product, do they have experience, essentially I’m asking myself “Does this person know what they are doing?”

Phil Faranda lives and works in the Westchester County area, so I know he understands what makes each village different, what to look out for, what the pricing is like, what neighborhoods are more in demand than others.  I have no doubt he knows his product.  

Then the second question is “What’s it going to be like working with this person?” Some agents might be proficient when it comes to doing a transaction, but they might be awful to actually spend time with.  This second question is where Phil really sets himself apart.  Phil is easy to get along with, he has a straightforward honest approach, you will not get any run around answers from Phil, he enjoys what he does and this will translate to an enjoyable experience.  I will wholeheartedly recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell in Westchester New York.

J. Philip Faranda is broker and owner of J. Philip Real Estate in Briarcliff Manor, NY which he founded in 2005. The firm is one of the premier independent boutique brokerages in Westchester County, serving all of Westchester as well as nearby Rockland, Putnam, Orange, and Dutchess Counties. There are 32 licensees with the company, which has grown throughout this challenging market period.
