We wanted a broker who had an open and honest personality who would listen to our needs and help us to find just what we were looking for. We found those qualities and more in Philip Rivera.
As first time homebuyers we were nervous, but Philip made us feel comfortable during every step of the process. Even after move in he was there to help us with a couple hiccups.
We will recommend Philip to anyone we know who is in the market to buy or sell their home and we will DEFINITELY work with him again when the opportunity arises! - Shaun And Eunice Brown O March 2018
I was interested in a home, and was working with a Joe Blade. He was great!, but when it came to the purchase of the home and the type of sale it was (HUD home) Joe that recommended Philip Rivera immediately! Phil was great! He worked with me and for me the entire time! It was quite a frustrating and lengthy process, but to absolutely no fault of Phils! He worked hard and did everything in his power to get things done! I am a first time home buyer and honestly was scared and nervous and didn't know what to expect, but I felt comfortable with Phil and the fact that he genuinely seemed to want to make this happen for me and my family:)
Thank you, god bless! - Rs January 2018
Would recommend to military members. Phil did an excellent job maintaining trust and communication during the sale at all times. I was PCS'ed overseas during the sale of the house. It surprisingly went smoothly despite the distance. - Lee: Lacey, Wa January 2018
Philip is great at what he does. He works with your schedule, knows the market well, and best of all he answers the phone when you call day night or weekend great communication. I would recommend Philip to anyone looking to buy or sell real estate. All around great guy - Brian Pearson Chehalis W October 2017
Phil was an amazing guy to work with. He was always available and willing to find and view new properties to ensure that I found the exact house I wanted. Phil was not satisfied until I found the perfect home. I will recommend Phil to everyone I know. He's the best realtor around and a great guy. - Dale Fontaine, Elma October 2017
Phillip went above and beyond. He listed my home 10k higher than expected. It sold above that! Phillip knows the market.
He also let me in my house when I locked myself out... - Anthony Taing, Lacey Wa October 2017
Philip Rivera was highly recommended to us by family members who have worked with him previously. His flexibility and determination to find the right home for my family were the driving factors in selecting him to finding our perfect home. For being first time home buyers, we didn't know what to expect, but Philip made the entire process extremely fun and smooth. His expertise put all of our worries at ease. He was always in communication with us, answered all of our questions and walked us through every step of the homebuying process. Clear and timely communications, professionalism, trustworthy are the best characteristics to describe Philip's performance. We would highly recommend him to others and we will definitely work with him in the future. We are extremely satisfied with his performance and rate the sales experience provided by Philip as TOP NOTCH! We've heard so many horror stories from other first time home buyers but working with Philip made ours fun and enjoyable. If we had to do it all over again, we would choose Philip Rivera every time! - James And Jennifer Marqu August 2017
Philip Rivera went above and beyond to meet our needs for our new home purchase. If we had any questions, he was always quick to respond and was tremendously informative, and always patient. His communication about the exchange of contracts and closing was very clear and well-paced.
Philip made our new home purchase very easy and understanding! He's extremely helpful and patient which made the journey more bearable. I'll be recommending Philip to any of my friends and family members looking to buy or sell a home because his work ethic and service was superb! - Glacy Venida, Lacey August 2017
Thank you to Philip Rivera for selling our home for our asking price in 6 weeks!!!!! We still can't believe it was only 6 weeks from the first day our house went on the market to the last closing day when we turned over the keys....6 weeks!!!!!
We originally looked at a total of three brokers. Two of the brokers were from other agencies. We decided to work with Philip Rivera because we felt instantly confident in his ability to sell our home. Philip put us at ease from the first time he walked into our home. It was apparent from the start that Philip is extremely knowledgeable, skilled, experienced and personable. He is the true professional. Philip made us feel comfortable with the entire selling process and we could not have had a more positive experience selling our home. We did not deal with any other Century 21 Link Real Estate staff other than Philip Rivera.
Thank you Philip Rivera and thank you Century 21 Link Real estate for selling our home!!!! - Victor And Andrea Cobb August 2017
Phil exposed me to many listings and made a few extra trips. He even mowed the lawn ! - Richard Dean 7125 Alderw August 2017
Philip was very professional,and we feel very lucky that he was our agent!
Philip made this whole process easy for us. I would recommend Philip to anyone. - Stu Pearson Olympia Wa July 2017
Philip made this whole process so easy, we never felt pressured or confused by the process and as a first time home buyer I couldn't ask for a better experience. Philip was quick to communicate and broke things down for us very well. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking to purchase a home. - Matt Davidson, Olympia May 2017
Philip Rivera is a wonderful agent. He helped us through a very long looking process to find the right house. When we found it he moved quickly, making sure the paper work was done in a timely manner. We love how thoughtful, kind, and patient he was with us and our toddler. He made house hunting possible and enjoyable. We highly recommend his services. - The Halderman Family May 2017
This was our first time buying a house and Philip Rivera made it very easy, and less stressful on us. He never pushed a house, was easy going and very professional, and very knowledgeable about the entire process. If we ever are in the market for a house again we would definitely contact Philip. - Starlene & Larry Johnson May 2017
We can't say enough about Phil! From beginning to end Phil made us a priority, answered all our questions, always kept us up to date and in the loop. As stressed out as we were about selling our house Phil was always comforting and really positive through the whole process. He's got a great up beat funny personality that would make anyone laugh. We'd recommend this guy to anyone even though he's a New York Yankees and Jets fan.
We really can't find one negative thing about Phillip! - Curtis And Amanda, Olymp September 2016
From the second I started working with Philip, we told him our certain criteria on our wish list that we wanted in a home. His knowledge in the Puget Sound and especially the Olympia area gave us great listings to look at. Philip is quite the multitasker, very professional, and really easy to work with. He was always opened to ideas we had for our changing decisions. I would recommend Philip Rivera to any buyer and seller in the area. Thank you again for finding my family a house we can grow in. - Jason In Olympia August 2016
Philip Rivera was referred to me by a friend and he couldn't have been more right about how amazing he is. Philip made the home buying process fun and seamless. He is knowledgeable, and he pays attention to details and things that are important to you. He was flexible with my challenging schedule and yet I still felt like he was literally always available. He ensured every step of the way that I had crystal clear understanding of what was going on and what was next. Philip sent me listings sometimes daily, he never let me miss a listing I could potentially love. Even when that meant driving to a property at 7 or 8pm when our schedules were cohesive and time was sensitive. He far exceeded any expectation I had for his availability and flexibility. Philip is not only dedicated and full of knowledge he has one of those personalities that you can't help but love. He's a perfect combination of professional and real. He's down to earth and funny and his approach was always genuine. I never once felt like a number. People like Philip are hard to find. I would recommend him a million times. - Amber Keen, des Moines August 2016
My wife and I had an excellent experience working with Phil. He made house hunting a great time and was always extremely easy to get ahold of. Whenever we wanted to see a house he made us feel like we were his top priority and took us to see it right away! We are very happy new home owners & cant wait to use Phil again in the future. - Andre Courie, Olympia August 2016
