Phil Hammond Bio

Phil HammondI currently live Oconee county with my wife Gloria and I have two grown children, Christina and Zack.  I grew up in Athens and graduated from the University of Georgia receiving a BBA in Marketing with a concentration in Real Estate.

While attending the University, I began preparing for my Real Estate career by taking courses specializing in Real Estate Finance and Brokerage and also working as a property manager. Educating the buyer on market conditions, home prices, different subdivisions, as well as financing options is essential.  I have over 25 years experience as a full time REALTOR.  My business is focused on the Athens and surround counties with the majority of my volume in Oconee county. After graduating UGA, I have gained additional experience in marketing, sales, and finance through work experience as well as  by obtaining my Broker’s license and I  continuing my education through state sponsored Real Estate courses.

Real Estate is a personal service business.  Don’t hire a company, hire a person.  Expect knowledge and skill from the REALTOR that you hire in the areas of financing, contracts, negotiating, and marketing.  Select a REALTOR with a track record of producing results.  Buying or selling a home should not be left to chance and is not something that you let a “friend try”.  Trust the buying or selling of your home only to a professional.  Accept nothing less than excellence.  Throughout my real estate career, I have consistently produced in the top 1% of all the active real agents in this area.  I am currently the #1 RE/MAX agent in Athens as well as #9  in the state of Georgia based on individual production.  I am committed as a personal service REALTOR.  I work personally with my buyers and sellers with the support of my wife Gloria, as my office manager.

Whether you are looking to buy or sell a home, land, or investment property, I promise results for you and communication along the way.  I look forward to working with you.
