Tell Us Your Story

As a longtime resident in the area, Phil is very knowledgeable about the local market, and offered us great advice on staging our home prior to going to market.

He is hard working, and did open houses nearly every week until we found a buyer. He also helped us navigate through a complicated closing process. I would highly recommend Phil to anyone looking to sell their home in the Monmouth and Ocean County area. He is top notch

Phil was referred to us by a relative whom had also purchased a home in the area recently, and we are surely satisfied with his performance.

He is very thorough in all he does and works tirelessly to get you situated. Very helpful, accommodating, and always going above and beyond what he was expected to do. If you seek an agent; Phil definitely comes highly recommend by us.

Words will never be able to express my sincere gratitude towards Phil (and his wife Kathie too!

). It was our first home buying experience- we went through multiple realtors and just didn't click with any of them (that's if they even showed up). We met Phil at a first showing of a small house that we loved, but decided not to go with because it wouldn't suit our needs long term. Phil is simply one of the KINDEST, most genuine, caring, and attentive people you will ever meet. I truly feel like by the end of our home buying experience he was more of a friend. He was always happy to have us look at a home, arrange multiple showings in one day to meet our needs, never got frustrated when we said we didn't like a house or kind of slowed down the house search, always kept in touch with houses he thought might be a good fit for our preferences, and looked out for us as if we were his own kids. I am so grateful everyday that we crossed paths with Phil- he honestly made our experience exponentially better. I have told everyone I know looking for a house about him and just everyone I know that asked about my house how great he was. If you go with Phil as your realtor- you will NOT be disappointed. Best decision I have ever made. If I ever need a realtor again he will be the one, but he stuck with us until we found our hopefully forever home and we are forever grateful. Thank you, Phil- you are THE BEST!!!

"Gail and I highly recommend Phil if you're buying or selling your home. He is the experienced agent that you want to have in your corner when making such an important decision in your life. His guidance and experience was a welcome relief when we sold our home. We relied on him to both educate us and walk us through the whole process. Phil had our interests at heart and made sure we were comfortable with our decisions. We sold our home in 48 hours and the process couldn't have been better!"

"Phil came highly recommended to us by relatives who had just recently bought their first home. We were not disappointed! Throughout the entire process of buying and selling our homes, Phil was professional, enthusiastic, attentive and spot on with his assessments of both the market and each home and respective seller we encountered. He was extremely well organized every step of the way, and always made us feel like a priority. We couldn't be happier with the home we purchased and we will continue to recommend Phil DeFusco to anyone looking to buy or sell!"

"To put it simply, Phil is amazing! He is extremely knowledgeable about the market and often was a good counsellor to us when making tough decisions. Our home buying process took way longer than anticipated. Phil stood by us through all of the ups and downs. I'd highly recommend him to anyone looking to either buy or sell!"

"Phil was wonderful to work with throughout the entire process. He offered many suggestions that helped us sell our house quicker than we expected. When the offers did come in, he had tremendous insight into the local market and help us negotiate the best deal for us. It was a pleasure working with Phil, I highly recommend him, and would use him again when the time comes for me to sell my next house in Central New Jersey."

"If we could we would give Phil 10 stars for negotiation skills and add a category for Patience. The process of buying our home was long and difficult buying a home from a seller who was not ready to leave his house. Phil expertly came up with options numerous times to get the closing done. He answered emails and text messages immediately and at all hours and did everything with a smile and pleasant attitude. On the other end of things, the process of selling our home couldn't have gone smoother and Phil's beautiful listing got us full price offers on the first day! If you want somebody who will go to bat for you and get you the home of your dreams or are looking to sell your house this is the guy!"
