As someone born and raised in the Pacific Northwest, I have lived in different states, such as California and Washington, D.C., before returning to Oregon. I am very familiar with Oregon, as it is my home state. I am a proud parent of two children who attended West Linn and Lake Oswego schools and later attended Oregon State and the University of Oregon. I love everything Oregon offers: playing golf, hiking in the mountains nearby, wine country tours, traveling the world with my wife, and taking my two labs on long walks. You can check my Instagram account for my world travels and real estate @philipnewmanoregonhomes.
I have spent many years as a sales manager, training sales staff on how to negotiate, which made it easy for me to transition into being a real estate agent. I am skilled at negotiating the best possible price for your future home. I have also spent many years restoring and flipping houses, so I know the design and the costs involved in making your home the showstopper you always dreamed of having.
One of the highlights of my life was being featured in an episode of HGTV's House Hunters - Season 200, Episode 5, "A Slower Life in Portland." I went through an extensive interview process to get this opportunity, and it was an honor to be selected. I even had a front-page article in the local newspaper and appeared on a FOX morning program as their real estate expert.

As a real estate agent, I enjoy getting to know my clients personally and keeping their home and life goals at the forefront of my mind. I work with you every step of the way, ensuring that we incorporate your needs into the process. I will teach you about the process and how to come out ahead, showing you all sides of the transaction, and my team will protect you from any legal or awkward situations that may arise in the home buying or selling process. During the sale, we will talk by phone daily and form a close, trusted relationship.
When it comes to finding your dream home, I have the expertise and ability to find homes that are off the market that can be purchased below market value to get you built-in equity on day one.
If you are selling your home, my marketing strategy and ability to contact qualified buyers to give you the most money for your home is second to none.
Oregon is a beautiful place to live, and I look forward to helping make your dream home sale or purchase a reality. Please call me, and let's start the house-selling or buying journey together.
