Deep family roots in New York City and in real estate set Phillip Acha up perfectly for a successful career in residential brokerage. His involvement in the industry began as a child, going to open houses, closings and lease signings with his grandmother, a longtime broker, and drove him to ultimately become an award-winning agent.
Born and raised in Park Slope, Phillip went on to work in construction while attending St. Frances College in Brooklyn Heights. He entered the world of real estate sales and rentals full-time in 2006, drawing on his valuable knowledge of pre-construction and expertise in the Brooklyn and Manhattan markets to find opportunities for his clients. Joining Douglas Elliman in 2011, Phillip has recognized with repeated Gold and Platinum-level awards for his performance, and in 2017 was ranked #2 in Tribeca for overall gross commissions. He and his exclusive properties have also been featured in the press such as The New York Times, Daily News, Real Deal and Brokers Weekly.
Key to what makes Phillip so good at what he does besides his incredible diligence is the personal approach he takes with his clients. Honesty, transparency, integrity and well-preparedness are very important to him, which he upholds in each and every transaction. Whether a resale co-op or condo, townhouse, multifamily building, mixed-use building, investment, new development or luxury rental, his goal is to guide his customers through every step of the process, and implement strategic, thoughtful pricing and marketing to get the best results for sellers.
Phillip’s work is very rewarding to him because great relationships with his clients is the payoff. His other greatest passion besides real estate is his family. He and his wife who hails from Dublin, Ireland visit there frequently with their young son Oliver. Film, photography, sports and travel are among Phillip’s other favorite pastimes.
