Sep 29, 2020Podcast

Are you a seller looking for active buyers during this pandemic? Or are you looking for ways to keep your business afloat using digital tools? Do you have a team that is dedicated to working overtime to get results? 

In today’s episode of Passion for Real Estate Investing, managing partner at The Green Group Real Estate, Phil Green, talks to us about the importance of dedication and how his team is able to keep growing their business even during the Covid-19 pandemic. From working in the corporate world, to getting his MBA, to building his company and ranking in the top 1% of San Diego County Realtors, Phil’s passion has helped him succeed and attain financial freedom. Today, Phil’s teams include 22 employees at their Fix & Flip business and around 40 agents in their brokerage. 

In 2013, Phil graduated with an MBA in real estate and finance from San Diego State University. After getting his broker’s license, he left the corporate world and pursued real estate. In 2015, HomeSmart Realty West recognized and awarded Phil as the Top-Performing Realtor. He is currently a Broker Associate and Realtor at Big Block Realty, Inc. By 2016, business had taken off and Phil’s brothers both joined his company. Since then, they’ve grown and expanded the company, and in 2019, they completed around 170 flips. 

Then along came Covid-19. 

How has Phil managed to keep his business afloat without any staff layoffs? We hear that his company helps every one of their employees buy a property, and he tells us about Matterport. How is he leveraging digital infrastructure and tools to compensate and adjust for the uncertainty that comes with the pandemic? Phil says they’re signing twice as many deals now than before Covid-19, and he gives some valuable advice to sellers.
