My team and I provide high-caliber representation and personalized care for both buyers and sellers. I’ve been in the business since 2004. Specializing in the Seattle metro area, which includes core urban neighborhoods as well as close-in Eastside suburbs, we work with a variety of clients—first-time buyers, empty-nesters moving on to their next chapter and up-and-coming young professionals, to name a few. I have a close-knit team and we take pride in forming lasting relationships with our clients. Our approach is holistic and collaborative, and we believe trust and confidence are the keys to a great client/broker relationship. Our first step is to sit down and get to know each other. We'll learn details about your lifestyle, goals and real estate needs. You’ll have the opportunity to ask questions about our expertise, background and the market. This conversation establishes open lines of communication and helps us understand how to best serve you. While buying or selling a home can be an emotional and sometimes stressful experience, our goal is to educate, advise and empower you so you can make informed choices throughout the process. We measure our success based on your satisfaction. We want you to look back at your home buying or selling experience and feel like you had strong advocacy and solid guidance, and that you were empowered to make the best decisions possible. When our clients and business partners are satisfied, we earn their trust through referrals and repeat business. From start to finish, and beyond, we’re here for you. TESTIMONIALS "He is genuine and authentic and always takes the time to create a relationship with his clients. If we decide to move, I wouldn't consider anyone else." "This was our second time working with Phillip, 13 years apart. This time around was significantly more complicated, with a very "unique" property to sell and lots of work/creativity needed to get it ready and marketable to the widest possible audience. Phillip and Alex shone throughout, from brainstorming the marketing story collaboratively, being opinionated yet flexible about pricing considerations, to the nitty gritty of scheduling cleaning, staging, etc. It was a true partnership throughout and it ended with a deal that was satisfying to all parties. Highly recommended!" “Phillip made my real estate sale an easy, headache free, smooth operation. His tireless efforts in his marketing strategy, continuous communication with myself and the buyer's agent was phenomenal. I knew my sale was in "good hands" when I chose Phillip to list my home the moment we began to talk. Trust is important in any professional relationship and I knew I could count on Phillip to fulfill my needs as a seller"

Our experience of working with Phillip in exploring and finding our home in the Northwest was nothing short of wonderful! Phillip put together a wonderfully detailed itinerary of home showings over two days. In the end we found a better match for our family in Portland but we would not have gotten there without Phillip. we cannot recommend working with him enough- an all-star realtor and a truly wonderful guy!

Sometimes you meet people and you just know that it’s a fit. That’s how it was with Phillip and Shane. When my wife and I decided to sell our home during a pandemic, we knew we needed an agent who knew the market well and would have our best interests at heart. We were looking for someone who understood and could communicate the spirit of our home to potential buyers, as well as secure the highest possible price. Phillip and Shane listened carefully to our story and what we loved about our home. From the start, we felt that they were invested in our success. Phillip’s industry knowledge and Shane’s amazing design sense stood out to us in our initial meeting and in their plans for how to list our home. It was evident to us that Phillip had deep experience in market trends and how to price listings correctly in a hot market. As we were moving through the process, Phillip guided us through every decision that needed to be made with clear and frequent communication. He helped focus us on what was important and necessary to get the best sale experience. We appreciated his honest feedback and how he managed our expectations throughout the process. Our home needed some repairs to really make it shine. Shane’s eye for mid-century design provided us with choices that made our home pop. We decided to move out of our house before the work was to begin. We agreed on an aggressive timeline for getting the house ready and on the market. Phillip and Shane managed all of the repairs and the scheduling of everyone involved. The contractors they recommended did great work on time and at a great price. This whole experience could have been very stressful but we were able to trust that our home was in experienced, caring hands. Along the way, we questioned whether or not we needed to hire stagers. The price tag for staging was very high! Because of the trust we had in Phillip, we decided to embrace his recommendation to stage our home and in the end it was worth every penny and more so! Our home looked gorgeous and we think that was reflected in the final selling price. Phillip was amazing during the time when the house was on the market. I’m fairly certain he never put his phone down! When it came time to review our offers, Phillip had clearly laid out all FIFTEEN offers so that we could easily examine the pros and cons of each offer. In the end we accepted an amazing offer that was well above asking price. We were completely overjoyed! Phillip continued to manage the process through closing. The clear communication from both Phillip and Shane continued, and we always knew where things were in the process. We are so grateful to both of them for making our home sale experience the best it could have been. I’m sure we don’t even know the lengths to which they went to make everything happen for us. That’s just who they are. We’re thankful to now call them friends.

Phillip did such a good job! He's a great realtor. He made it easy of us the entire process from the initial idea to sell all the way through getting the check wired to our bank account! He knew what we needed do, provided the tools, quality contractors, and ultimately the best-fit vision for our specific house in our unique neighborhood. He was well researched on the current market and got us a very fair price. Highly recommend!

I have had the pleasure of working with Phillip Belenky and his team twice now, and it was an absolute pleasure on both accounts. The first time I worked with Phillip was for the purchase of my condo six years ago. As a first time home buyer, it was immensely helpful and comforting having Phillip's professional knowledge and expertise to walk me through this new to me process. He was able to help connect me with and arrange other professional services as well, which made the process smooth such as inspections, estimates for necessary repairs, mortgage broker, moving company, etc. Most recently Phillip and his team helped us sell our condo and also purchase our forever home. This time around was more work, as we had to get our condo ready for sale as well as purchase another home at the same time - again Phillip helped in so many ways to make this all come together for us. He helped facilitate many upgrades to our condo by connecting us with contractors who completed our projects within a tight timeline and within our budget, which we were so grateful for. The communication from him and his team during this whole process was outstanding, and their efforts resulted in a full price offer within two days of listing, in a market that was saturated with other condominiums. We were ecstatic! The process to purchase the home we're in now, our forever home, I don't believe would have happened without the knowledge and professionalism that Phillip brings to the table. The home was only on the market for one weekend before offers were being reviewed the following Monday, ours was one of 11 offers. Phillip was able to make a connection with the sellers agent, make sure all of our paperwork was ready and in order, and do all of the leg work required to put together an offer that wasn't the highest, but was the most desirable to the sellers. Phillip almost makes it look like magic, how everything comes together - but I know it's really all of the hard work, experience, and heart that he puts into his clients and their listings that result in an experience you wouldn't find with other agents. I would (and have) wholeheartedly recommend Phillip Belenky and his team at PBNW Homes, they really are the best.

I worked with Phillip recently to buy my first house, and his organization and thoughtfulness made the entire experience really great. He also provided a great strategy when I made my bid (knowing it would be competitive) and I ended up having the strongest offer because of Phillip’s advice! I couldn’t have done it without him.

Phillip helped us purchase this beautiful new house in December. Amid one of the most hectic times at work and stressful health issues with a parent, he kept the transaction humming along flawlessly. Philip's rapport with the listing broker helped secure everything we could have wanted and more. We had a very positive experience with selling a home 6 years ago. That transaction was smooth. We had no idea that it could be even smoother. Thanks Phillip for listening, for knowing when to steer us, and for dotting every i and crossing every t!

We worked with Phillip and his team to purchase our new home in Mountlake Terrace and couldn't be more pleased with the process. From the beginning, Phillip and his team helped us to understand the importance in knowing the area and what to look for in purchasing a house. We found the perfect place with his help and he helped us create a perfect offer. From learning how to properly stage our condo for sale to the final offer to buy our new home he was always there. If we ever go to sell or buy again, he is the only broker we will ever use.

This is our second time buying a home with Phillip and first time selling our home with him and Alex. We contacted Phillip this summer to start the conversation about what kind of house we could afford and where in the greater Seattle area might be the best fit for our family. Right away Phillip and Alex put us at ease and gave us so much useful information that we decided to take the plunge. We had to sell our existing home in order to be able to buy a new one. Both working full time and having a kindergartener made the logistics of getting our house ready to sell feel daunting. Phillip gave us recommendations that were cost effective and impactful. They made a super detailed home selling plan for us, soup to nuts, from painting to landscaping to staging and everything in between. Phillip and Alex organized the timing, recommended workers, scheduled everything, and oversaw every aspect of the process while also ensuring that we were still able to have comfort and a sense of normalcy by recommending great airbnbs and working around our timelines which is important when you have young kids. Honestly, they were amazing. They took the stress out of the process entirely and in the end our home sold in 6 days! We were worried about the timing of buying and moving into our next home and with absolute finesse, Phillip orchestrated the process where we were able to make an offer that wasn’t contingent on our house sale, and move directly into our new home from our previous home. We never felt pressured and always felt like we were getting good advice. My husband and I have very different design aesthetics and yet Phillip was able to hone in on what each of us really wanted and help us find our dream home. He listened not only to what we were saying but also took the time to understand our lives and understand us as individuals and as a family. It was easy to place our trust in him. He made us feel like we were his only clients (which is funny because in reading his reviews I find that a lot of his clients feel that way too). He has such deep knowledge of this business and went above and beyond what we expected of him in every way. Such as giving us design tips, tips on enrolling our son in a new school, great suggestions for a new landscaper, home maintenance tips, a good packing and moving company to use, I could go on and on. Friends of our recommended Phillip to us back in 2012 and we couldn’t be more grateful for the connection. Fast forward to 2019, we wouldn’t be where we are today without Phillip and Alex’s help. If you are considering buying or selling your home, PBNW Homes is the place to go. They are outstanding at what they do.

Carey G - Seattle, Washington: 2019-10-11

He is genuine and authentic and always takes the time to create a relationship with his clients. If we decide to move, I wouldn't consider anyone else.
