Phil and Stella have sold three houses for our family now. Each time the homes sold quickly and above asking price. Not only did we see excellent results, but they were very professional and pleasant to work with. Phil and Stella have connections with a long list of excellent contractors that completed repairs and upgrades as required to optimize market value. We highly recommend their services.

Phil and Stella were phenomenal realtors! They guided us through the sale of our house and were incredibly responsive (even to our inexperienced questions). The pair helped us ready the house to sell, with everything from suggesting paint colors to finding a landscaper and recommending a fantastic stager. All of these improvements paid of big-time! Phil and Stella sold our house in just three days after it went on the market, AND they got us a full $250K over asking! I cannot recommend a team of realtors more highly than Phil and Stella!

Phil and Stella make the process of selling our family home go very smoothly. They have years of experience in this market and they know the various neighborhoods in the area. They immediately went to work and did the project management of getting painting, floors, and small improvements made to the house which allowed the house to shine. This was immensely helpful to us as this is very time consuming and we do not live nearby so had no idea who to hire for these projects. The house looked amazing and sold quickly. All in all, working with Phil and Stella was a great experience.
We contacted Phil and Stella about 3 ½ months before our house went on the market. They arranged painters, landscapers, cleaning and staging. When our listing went live, Phil and Stella held an open house for neighbors on Friday and an open house on Saturday and Sunday. We accepted an offer, over asking, 5 days later. Phil and Stella were professional, personable and expert at pricing our house so that we got top dollar. Furthermore, Phil went above and beyond by communicating in a timely manner with our Central Coast real estate agent as we purchased a new home. We closed on both homes exactly one week apart. Phil and Stella are the best!

My wife and I have had privilege of knowing Phil & Stella Ralph for many years. They helped us sell two homes. They even worked with friends to donate furniture, dishes, blankets, and much more after we lost everything in one of the massive fires in Northers California. For both home sales, we let Phil & Stella completely run things. They knew exactly what to spend money on to help sell both homes without wasting money on things that wouldn't have had much impact on the sale. They handled getting contractors and overseeing the work. Both homes sold for absolutely TOP dollar in no time! Phil & Stella are not only extremely knowledgeable, they are completely genuine and honest! I would never consider letting anyone else help us with either buying or selling a house. Can't say enough great things about them. Talk toeither of them for five minutes and you'll understand!
Greg & Linda Leonard
Phil and Stella are absolutely superb! Highly recommended! We have relied on them for three real estate transactions, and also as a property manager for a rental. The results always exceeded expectations. Specifically, they were outstanding with communication, suggestions for improvements prior to selling, and in negotiation & evaluation of offers.

From start to finish, we had the best experience selling our Campbell home with Phil and Stella. They were an absolute pleasure to work with and we highly recommend them. When we first engaged with Phil and Stella, we were on the fence about whether it was the right time to move house and they helped us immensely with market insights, good quality, fact based information about market conditions and trends. They struck a balance that my wife and I greatly appreciated where they provided enough information to empower us to make our own decisions, without imparting their own opinions. Finding a realtor you can trust, who is looking out for your interests above their own is incredibly difficult but incredibly important and we found that in Phil and Stella. It was almost two years from our first acquaintance until we decided to make the move but Phil and Stella were there, patiently supporting us the whole journey. Once we decided to list our home, things moved fast (as we’d asked for), inspections, staging, photography, a video tour, viewings and open houses were all executed extremely efficiently. The house was marketed far beyond our expectations. Our house literally exploded onto the market! The proof was in the response, we had 81 parties view the property and received multiple offers far over asking. The house sold exactly 7 days after going on MLS. For as long as these two are in business, we know that we have trusted realtors in the Bay Area.

My mother recently passed away and my three sisters and I needed to sell her home in Campbell. All of us owned homes, but none of us had ever sold our homes, except one and it had been a long time. We needed a realtor that we could trust and depend on. I had seen Phil & Stella's name for years around Campbell. They had been selling a lot of homes in Campbell, for over 20 years. They were my first and only call. My sisters and I loved them! We explained to Phill and Stella that my mother passed away and we needed to know what to do to make the house look presentable. They gave us their opinion and we set a selling price that day. They had contacts for painters, handymen, junk disposal and home stager. It was so wonderful to have their assistants during this difficult time for us. We were going to market and Phil had been researching the real estate market in our area. A few homes were selling for less than what we were listing our home for, so Phill called me and recommended that we lower the price on our home. These homes were fully remodeled and one had 4 bedrooms, ours only had 3 bedrooms. His strategy worked! My mother's home sold in 1 day, for $240,000 over our list price. They did a fantastic job, it was quick, efficient and very professional. We trusted them, also they were friendly, innovative, and thoughtful!
Phil and Stella met with us to discuss selling our home in 95130 on 3/17/20 - just before the world changed, the Bay Area went into SIP for the first time, and there was massive uncertainty all around. They worked with us to ride out our concerns about the market and find just the right to sell our home. They were absolutely excellent in every way! From being warm and friendly and just putting us at ease, to offering decades of expertise, to setting us up with good contractors and guiding us to make good choices about what to do before listing without compromising our profits, they inspired our trust and earned our respect. We sold our house in Sept 2020 within a week, with multiple offers, for 150K more than our asking price. While some of this success could be attributed to "the market," we also believe the EXCELLENT advice and professional service we received from Phil and Stella every step of the way was a huge contributing factor. My husband is actually used to a realtor himself and they provided exactly the expertise, honestly and reliability we were looking for - and we are very grateful. Thanks, Phil and Stella, you helped us ful-PHIL our dreams and were absolutely STELLAr is every way! ;)

Phil and Stella did an awesome job for us. Just 7 days from the day we signed to put on MLS, while complying with all the rules for Covid 19 lockdown for Real Estate showings, we were considering four good offers. The one we accepted was well over our asking price, with no contingencies. We moved out at beginning of escrow. Phil and Stella took care of readying the house for turnover to the buyer. Phil has connections to people who do cleaning and repairs. Within 30 days of accepting the offer our money was in our bank.
Phil and Stella are a pleasure to work with, as well as experienced and honest. They provided us with extremely valuable guidance for purchasing our house, while having our best interests and a final goal in mind. However, we had not immediately recognized the true value of the guidance but definitely became aware and appreciative of it at the end of the process. Our experience with Phil and Stella was absolutely fantastic and we would recommend them without any hesitation.

Phil is very friendly and knowledgeable. This was our 1st time selling a property, and we had lots of questions and concerns. Phil was prompt at answering our questions, and also put our minds at ease. We feel that Phil was instrumental in getting our property sold quickly, and for a fair price. We'll be coming back to Phil for our future real estate needs.

It is with great pleasure that I write this recommendation for Philip Ralph. Lets set aside the fact that Phil is one of the nicest dudes you will ever meet, and talk about his skills as a Real Estate Agent. I bought a home from Phil a few months ago by driving by a home that I found right here in Zillow. I just planned to drive by and take a look at the house from the outside, but Phil was here having an open house, so I walked in. I walked up to the home and smelled fresh baked cookies. This was already a win!!! When I came in Phil immediately greeted me although he was speaking with another prospective client with a smile, and said "welcome, feel free to look around." As soon as the other couple left, Phil gave me his undivided attention, showed me around the house, and told me about the history of the home. That history also included that this was the second time he was selling this home, and that he also sold the home to the sellers. That say's it all right there, and if I ever decide to sell my home, I will with Phil. Think about that! Here it is. If you are looking into buying a home that Phil is selling, if you are looking to buy a home that Phil ISN'T selling, or if you are looking into selling a home, PLEASE work with Phil. The entire sales experience I had with Phil was about 3 days, from handshake to close, and was an amazing experience. Phil knows the market, knows the sales process, and makes buying a home FUN. Super nice dude, knows the market, bakes cookies! Buying a home is usually stressful, but buying a home through Phil was FUN. I highly recommend Phil. The dude is awesome!!!!
As local Campbell-area realtors, we have known Phil and Stella for about 20 years and worked with them in the past regarding a possible rental property purchase a few years back. They are personable and incredibly knowledgeable and experienced in the field, and in the local area realty market. This month, Phil and Stella helped us sell our house in the Campbell area, in 10 days with multiple offers! With their contractor contacts, and their recommendations, they helped us line up, on a short timeline, the painters, flooring, landscapers and handyman that we needed to fix our home up prior to sale. They advised us as to when to put the house up for sale to maximize our sale price, had the house staged perfectly, priced the house correctly, leaving room for possible multiple offers -- which we got! I HIGHLY recommend Phil and Stella if you're looking to buy or sell...they're great to work with, facilitate all aspects of the process (from pre-listing to listing to closing) and they know their stuff!

I happily recommend Phil and Stella to help you sell your house. They helped me get my house ready for sale, and when we put it on the market, it sold for top dollar, and closed hassle-free. They were thorough, knowledgeable, responsive, and totally pleasant to work with.
What I demand from my real estate agent is professionalism, perfection, responsiveness, market awareness and mostly to be on their game and available to me at every moment of every day. I selected Phil and Stella Ralph to be my agents, because they demonstrated to me that they met my stringent qualifications. My sell/purchase decision took several months. Phil and Stella were extremely patience and helpful throughout the long process. In the end, Phil and Stella's performance far exceeded my expectation! The transaction was seamless and flawless. If you are in need of a professional real estate team, you should give Phil and Stella a call. I highly recommend them, and was thrilled at the outcome they achieved for me and my family.

Phil and Stella are very familiar with the local market in the Campbell area. They have exceptional communication skills; they listened to and understood our questions and gave direct and understandable answers. They have a full contact list of inspectors, contractors and installers, etc which we made good use of. These factors, combined with their cheerful attitudes, made selling our home with them a very pleasant (and profitable) process.
Jim & Michelle Hunter
We worked with Phil and Stella to sell our first home and it was absolutely a positive experience! We had not previously worked with, nor did we know anyone, who had worked with Phil and Stella before. We had received their newsletters and saw their signs in our neighborhood over the years so we decided to give them a call. It was honestly the best call we made! Selling our first home was an emotional decision for us. We purchased the home as newlyweds and expanded our family over 14 years. Long work commutes and time away from our family were the determining factors in selling our home. Phil and Stella were extremely knowledgeable, patient, and understanding through every step. We never felt rushed into making a decision and they were always looking out for our best interests, instead of just closing the deal. They took care of scheduling inspections, coordinating with consultants, etc, so we could focus on our family and the transition ahead. Anytime we had questions, they were both available via phone, text or email, and never made us feel silly with our millions of questions. They also connected us with a real estate agent to help find our new home. Even though they were not involved with the purchase transaction of our new home, they were more than happy to assist our other agent, answer questions, and coordinate with the escrow company. We would highly recommend them and if we still lived in the area, we would definitely use them again!

I have been doing business with Phil and Stella since 2007 and have known them before that. They have sold 2 homes and helped me buy one. They are a great team. Professional and knowledgeable. I would recommend any buyer or seller to Phil and Stella. I have seen them sell homes when others could not and get the best price. They protect your interest whether it is on the buy side or the sell side.
