1341859988Westchester Real Estate, Inc, a membership organization of select real estate firms covering Westchester and Putnam Counties as well as Manhattan, proudly announces its newest member firm, J. Philip Real Estate of Briarcliff Manor.

Broker and owner J. Philip (Phil) Faranda has grown his firm from its humble beginning in 2005 as a one-person office to one of Westchester County’s premier boutique brokerages with over 25 associates in just 7 years, and during a decided slump in the real estate market. Mr. Faranda, one of the top 20 producers for closed transactions out of 6500+ agents in the marketplace, is serving his third term as Vice President of the Hudson Gateway MLS in 2012, and was recently appointed to a Zillow Advisory Board, one of just 20 agents selected nationwide. He is recognized by the mainstream media for his local area acumen and real estate technology expertise; his blog, WestchesterRealEstateBlog.Net, and live commentary have been featured in both print and television appearances.

“I am honored to have been invited to join this highly regarded consortium of the area’s finest independently owned brokerages. I look forward to collaborating with them to raise the bar even higher for all involved. I think it will be an asset for my agents as well as my clients to have the additional resources and opportunities this affiliation will afford us,” stated Mr. Faranda.

They have a similar philosophy to the other independently owned companies that comprise Westchester Real Estate’s membership, including a steadfast commitment to the highest ethical standards, excellence in client service and a devotion to community involvement.
