About

Real Estate is a field that many can enter, but few can raise the bar. Philip Vita has focused his time, energy, and passion on being the best real estate professional he can be. “I eat, sleep, and breathe this business, and that is what I attribute much of my success to,” he says. Vita’s inspiration came from his father, who he considered an honorable, hardworking man with old-fashioned values. Specializing in luxury sales was Vita’s goal from the moment he entered into the business more than 11 years ago. Now Vita proudly boasts a quarter of a billion dollars (and counting) in residential real estate sales volume as a single real estate agent! “I believe in honesty and transparency between myself and my clients,” says Vita. “I will always give you the truth, even if it’s not what you want to hear.” Whether buying or selling in the suburbs north of Boston, let Philip Vita be your guide.

What's your background, education and training?

I have been self-employed since the age of 17. Member of Massachusetts Association of Realtors, and Greater Boston Real Estate Board. Certified Luxury Home Marketing Specialist, REALTOR.

What is your typical process for working with a new client?

A face-t0-face meeting is always ideal. This allows me to better understand the needs and desires of my clients. Our customers needs always come first.

What advice would you give a client looking to find a provider in your specialty?

I always encourage my prospective clients to interview multiple real estate professionals to find out who is the best fit for you. Like anything else, take a look at online reviews. I personally believe Zillow is a great source. Have confidence in the person you select. They are going to be the person that will negotiate and guide you through the transaction; they will be your voice.

What inspired your passion for your profession?

People. The best part of my job is my daily interaction with people from all walks of life. I love working with buyers and sellers in what most consider to the biggest decision making process of their life.

What services are you most excited to offer?

A different perspective. We don't use a "one size fits all" model. Each client has different needs and desires. It is important to first hear what is most important to our client. It is then my responsibility to make that a reality.

What is the best reaction you’ve ever received from a client?

This is a fun one! I recently sold a home for a Winchester family. I had listed the same home a few years earlier for the previous seller. The buyer at that time (current seller) had a different real estate professional working as their buyers agent. When it was time for them to move onto their next home, I was surprised to get a call to once again list this home. Being on opposite sides of the transaction the first go-round, we weren't on the friendliest of terms! When I asked the client why he had reached out to me now that it was time to sell, he responded by saying he "hated me the first time" because I was on the other team, but he knew that there was no one else he wanted on his side when it was HIS time to sell!

What makes your business stand apart?

Our white glove service, attention to detail, and premium online/print marketing.

How many years have you been in business?

What do clients have to say about you?

"Phil and Amanda are PHENOMENAL!!! Within just 4 weeks (yes, 4 weeks, not 4 months!) Phil perfectly facilitated 2 significant real estate transactions for us: our purchasing our dream condo within Winchester and our immediately downsizing from (and selling in record time!) our 5 bedroom Winchester home of 33 years. Within just 2 days of our finding and buying our condo, Phil had listed and found the perfect buyer for our home. This short time line is all the more amazing in that this happened between October and November (not typically deemed prime real estate market months) and that Phil accomplished our home sale at top market value and without any open house or property staging or involving other realty offices. Phil and Amanda honored our every wish in this process and earned our trust and friendship. Each of these two real estate transactions was handled by Phil and Amanda with the utmost care, discretion and attention to detail. Phil has an extraordinary capacity to listen and to negotiate deals that are beyond measure. He is keenly aware of market value and, with his superb business acumen and integrity, is a master of successful negotiation. Choosing the right realtor was very important to us. Phil and Amanda exceeded our every expectation. When we found our in-demand dream condo here within Winchester, we had full confidence in Phil's ability to secure the deal for us. Phil and Amanda's 24/7 availability, rapid response and extraordinary willingness to provide access on relatively short notice made this process so exceptionally easy and, yes, painless! Phil's vast knowledge and array of contacts, coupled with his amazing people skills, are huge assets. Amanda's professionalism, beaming personality, helpful suggestions, consistently timely follow-through and extraordinary availability along with her superb organizational and people skills were such gifts to us. Their combined talents and their dedication to their clients render Phil and Amanda a stellar duo! We cannot imagine such incredibly fast, successful results with any realty team other than Phil and Amanda. We have never, in our many years in Winchester, met a realtor with as much ""can do"" commitment and solid performance as Phil. Of note, we remember first seeing Phil Vita's name around town and thinking, ""Who is this guy?"" We now know Phil is THE GUY to handle your real estate transaction of any kind. Phil and Amanda, we are profoundly grateful for your outstanding customer service. Thanks to you, we are in our dream home here in Winchester. We are truly blessed."

"Phil & Amanda are SENSATIONAL! I first met Phil at an open house and knew immediately he was the person I could rely on to seamlessly navigate the purchasing process. Phil's expertise, professionalism, honesty, dependability, compassion, personality (the list goes on) were the seal-the-deal ingredients that led me to my dream home. The right condo, for me, meant much more than specs and square footage; it was my new beginning, and Phil took that to heart. Throughout the purchasing process, Phil & Amanda have become confidantes and friends. Available 24/7 by phone, text, email, home visits (do they sleep?), they ensure every bit of the process is well-managed and efficiently moving forward. Beyond the closing, Phil & Amanda are ripe with contractor recommendations, oft-forgotten pointers, and sincere interest in my to do list status. I'd (almost!) think I'm their only client. Whatever you may need - floors, kitchens, plumbing, paint, closing attorneys, you name it - Phil has well-vetted contacts who produce beautiful work. Amanda cannot go unmentioned for coordinating flawless operations start to finish. Phil & Amanda's attention to detail, likeability, and genuine commitment to my happiness and well-being left a permanent impression. It's without hesitation that I recommend this dynamic duo; they have earned my unending thanks and praise for all they've done to inject my new beginning with confidence in and gratitude for the process."
