About Phil Burnstine

Phil is a life-long resident of Chicago with over 20 years of award-winning commercial and residential real estate experience. He is well versed in the comings and goings of the city and active in the arts community. Trustworthy and a natural salesman at heart, he has an innate ability to make others feel at ease while, at the same time, he gets the deal done. I am especially adept at working with first time buyers who are ill at ease with getting into the market. There are so many ins and outs with the real estate market today, that it takes someone who knows the areas and financing innuendos. Phil recently joined Chicago Property Services and concentrates on helping associations become more efficient with professional management services throughout the city of Chicago. He started in the commercial real estate arena in 1986 in the River North area in Chicago and became the fifth ranked agent in the North Side Real Estate Board which is now CAR. He will still make real estate deals in the residential and commercial community as well.
