November 11th, 2020 | no comments

Welcome to Mom’s House.

As a St. Louis native, Phillip’s passion is cheering on the Cardinals baseball and Blues hockey teams. When he’s not watching sports or with his family, Phillip is helping other families solve big problems. He started his career as a home builder and developer and transitioned to buying houses from seniors or the adult children.

Over the last 22 years, Phillip has bought hundreds of houses and has a passion for working with families; his sellers love him! There isn’t much he hasn’t seen, so creativity and care are his go-to when it comes to buying houses and helping families solve some of their biggest problems. His entrepreneurial spirit and commitment to making the home selling process easier for seniors led him to create the nationwide network of Mom’s House Certified Buyers.

Phillip has two young sons, Drake and Sterling, and a super wife, Melissa, who is all he could have ever dreamed of. (Well, except maybe his lifelong dream to one day own the St. Louis Cardinals baseball team. #baseballnut) He is an avid tennis player and also loves playing hockey with his two boys. Phillip volunteers for multiple charities, including Brace for IMPACT 46, an organization that supports youth programming in both St. Louis and Haiti, and Special Spaces, which builds custom rooms for terminally ill children suffering from cancer.

John Williams was my 1stguest on the Real Estate Locker Room Podcast and I’m stoked to welcome him back to celebrate the 100thEpisode!

John doesn’t believe that you have to be the most talented person to be successful as a real estate investor. You have to leverage the talent that you do have and work hard.

Investing in real estate is cumulative and John’s advice is to learn from doing. Don’t be afraid to get your hands dirty and learn the business of fixing property by doing it.

  3. Continue to build your portfolio so that you can expand.
  4. Buy little things, stack them together, sell them off for a big profit, then buy bigger stuff.
