Phillip is an experienced real estate professional with roots in the finance and construction industries.  Although he began his real estate career as a mortgage banker specializing in investment property loans for repeat buyers of single-family rental homes, he started doing construction as early as 12 years old with his father.  Phillip spent two years learning the construction and development business as a Project Manager for a luxury builder.  Over time, Phillip moved into his own investment property acquisitions, using the best practices he gleaned from his real estate investor clientele in both financing and construction.  This allowed Phillip to add property management and renovation expertise to his skillset, and he leveraged this into a successful development, building, and construction pipeline for the last decade via Trajan Development and TraCon Construction. 


Recognizing the unique benefits of investment in the rapidly gentrifying East Downtown corridor of Houston, Phillip focused his projects on a combination of “down to the studs” renovations as well as ground up construction of investment real estate.  Owning and operating his businesses, Phillip cultivated greater acumen in accounting, business development, and investor relations while developing over 40 projects in the Houston area. 


Phillip has been an ardent supporter of local charities since 1999 when he worked with The Boys and Girls Clubs of Austin and Travis County, along with many other charities most recently with a Ministry that works with local foster children and is a core value he wants to pass on to his young daughters Sophia and Madeleine.  Phillip spends most of his recreational time with his daughters.


From 2004 to 2009 he was recognized as one of the top three listing and selling agents in Houston and surrounding areas. He started his own agency in 2009, peaking with over 50 agents managed by him before switching his focus to assisting builders and development companies. He started renovating properties in the 90’s and specializes in finding land in up and coming neighborhoods, creating and mobilizing inventory strategies, and liquidation the homes prior to construction is complete. His extensive knowledge and contacts in the industry make his expertise unmatched.
