Phil and Shelley were there for us every step of the way in helping us find the perfect home. We were selling our home “by owner” and never once did they make us feel uncomfortable. On the contrary, we received very practical advice from them regarding staging our house, making sure we kept our belongings safe during open houses, neighborhood comparables, etc. When we received multiple offers on our house, we contracted through Phil and Shelley to help negotiate the sale and ended up selling for slightly over asking price! Soon after, we found the home of our dreams, and they were there for us from the time we placed the offer until the keys were handed over to us. They even have their own moving truck! We can’t say enough about how helpful they were to us!

Buying a house is a big decision and, for a single woman like me, it can be a scary one, too! Knowing that I could depend on my realtor Shelley Berendt and the Chiles Team to not only work with me to find the house I needed, but to answer what seemed to be an endless string of questions, is the main reason I bought a house here in Springfield. Shelley gave so much of her time and effort in finding me the perfect house. I can’t speak highly enough of her. Honestly, I couldn’t have made the move without the help, knowledge and friendship extended to me by the Chiles Team. I am very happy with my decision to use The Real Estate Group and I am very happy with my new house!

Thanks, Shelley & Phil.

We just bought our first house and boy was it an experience! It was so stressful, but so rewarding in the end and we couldn’t have done it without Phil Chiles. I can‘t begin to say how great Phil was through our whole house-buying process. As first-time home buyers, we had no idea what to do or what to expect, and Phil was wonderful and more helpful than we ever expected. He went out of his way to help us get the house we wanted and to make this work for us. We hit many obstacles along the way, and Phil was there to help us through each one. Even when we hit a snag with the mortgage company we were originally going through, he was there with the name of a finance guy who went the extra mile to help us seal the deal. Phil went above and beyond his duties every step of the way. And he never seemed bothered by my million phone calls and questions, either! He was not only a realtor, but a friend.

I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Phil Chiles of The Real Estate Group (formerly Aspen Real Estate) to anyone looking to buy or sell a house. I don’t think there’s a better realtor out there! Thank you Phil, for all your hard work and for helping us buy our first home. We’re so very grateful!

Ryan and I chose Phil as our realtor. His honesty and friendliness are just two reasons we chose him. He worked hard to find the house with our specifications. He worked his schedule around ours. If ever we had questions he was there to answer them. He worked to get us the best deal we could get on the house. Thanks Phil for all you did.
