"There are individuals in our community that make a difference with the school and their community and one such person is Chad Phillips of Venture Properties. His donation to assist families within our community is reflective of the powerful affirmations of love and giving! Special thanks to Chad and Venture Properties for being so very generous and assisting other Grant families during these very difficult economic times."

John Krinkel, Superintendent – Grant School District

"Thanks very much to both you and Colette for the professional manner in which you have handled this home purchase, Chad. I will be bragging on you guys for years to come. Hoo-Ah! (remember, that's an Army term for Awesome!)."

John & Heidi U.

"Chad, I just wanted to say thank you for all your hard work. We DID IT! I so appreciate all you did. We are getting settled in and loving our new place."


"Chad met with us on Christmas Eve for a listing interview appointment. We decided to hire him after interviewing 4 other realtors previously. He and his staff provided excellent customer service. The marketing was superb (opinion coming from a business major)! Our home sold in these difficult economic times. He assisted us with negotiating fine details of our sale and we were able to make a purchase of another home within a very short time. I would definitely recommend Chad Phillips. He is an expert in this field!"

B & C

"We had our home listed for over a year with another Realtor and we had many viewings, but no offers. We then switched to Chad. Within 6 weeks of Chad listing our home, we had an offer and sold our home. Chad's exceptional business sense, aggressive nature, and "out of the box" marketing sold our house in a flash! I would definitely use him again and recommend him to anyone. He's just willing to do more - whatever it takes to make it happen!"

Todd & Dee

"We found that Chad was not only a very knowledgeable and skilled agent, we also truly had the feeling throughout that Chad had our best interests at heart. We have worked with other agents in the past but what distinguishes Chad from others is his energy, marketing experience, and his devotion to his clients. Chad was more than our agent, he became our friend as well. The relationship with most agents typically ends at closing but with Chad you will have most likely gained a long-term friend from the process."

M & R

"In our case we wanted to purchase a home near Donner Lake in the Sierras and requested Chad to represent us. We found the home for us, it was a 4 hour drive for Chad and we wanted to purchase the home 25% below the asking price. Chad took several trips to the property, thoroughly researched the area, presented a solid case to the sellers, and never gave up on our goal. You might imagine it was a tough negotiation, but Chad managed the sellers (and us) with grace and professionalism throughout the process. We got the house within 2% of our target price. We're confident this could not have happened without Chad's real estate skills, good nature, and tenacity."

Dave & Robin

"We listed our home with Chad because our neighbor's home was for sale for about 5 years with various agents with no results. However, it sold fairly quickly after they listed with Chad because of his "hard work and imaginative representation of their property. Chad listed our home and it sold in several months with a 15 day escrow IN THIS MARKET ! Chad was always there for us: using a professional photographer, showing our home, he was there at the Title Co. when escrow closed, AND this meant traveling many miles from his home base. He is very sensitive to our needs and seems to have an unusual intuitive feeling about people. We are confident that he will find us a perfect home when the time comes and YES, we are pleased to count Chad as a caring friend."

Harvey & Jeannette

"We were looking for a unique property that fit our lifestyle and children's needs but were unable to find an agent to give us that extra effort until we found Chad. After spending time with us to determine our needs and desires Chad was able to find a perfect fit. Chad was instrumental in coordinating negotiation and closing efforts and we are very pleased with the result."

D & D

"Today is Thanksgiving 2007 and it is the perfect time to send a heartfelt thank you to Chad Phillips for what he did for my family and me earlier this year. I had suffered a serious financial setback some years earlier and had been working to regain ground financially to reestablish ourselves and to obtain a nice home for my family once again. Chad's Christian heart provided me with information about a motivated couple he had met back in the summer of 2006. The couple had removed their home from the marketplace, but he suspected they had a continued need to sell. Thanks to Chad's creative thinking, unselfish spirit, and a willingness to respond to a need - we are living in a beautiful home today. Thanksgiving Chad!"
