Background: I was raised in a town of 60 people in northeast Arkansas. I ended up in Des Moines via a football scholarship at the University of Iowa and Hillcrest dorm romance with my wife.

The most rewarding part of my job is that my wife and I now count many of my clients as great friends.

What I do to get away from work: I love to take our puppies for a long walk around the neighborhood. If it's not too cold, my wife might even come.

Words to live by: Good enough never is.

Best business book I've read lately: "The Go-Giver" by Bob Burg and John David Mann.

The best place in central Iowa to entertain clients or colleagues: Latin King restaurant.

One thing I would change about the Des Moines area: Sub-zero temperatures.

"Cy Phillips is a fantastic real estate agent, whom I cannot recommend him enough for his professional services. After we had moved to Houston, Texas, he was responsive and open with communication in helping us sell our home from another state. True to turn-key service, Cy leveraged technology, emails, and phone calls to handle the entire sale to closing in 30 days after only being on the market for 9 days in an IOWA WINTER! After finding our buyer, he worked with us through the process with composure and encouragement for his first-time sellers, even being flexible on his own commission to make the sale happen and help us get the most of our proceeds. At closing, Cy even took the time and personal attention to walk the property, found some priceless photos we had lost during the move, and mailed it back to us! I cannot thank Cy Phillips enough for his services in wrapping up this sale at a critical time in our lives. I wholeheartedly recommend him and would use his services again, there is not another agent who we would rather trust."

"I feel very fortunate to have worked with Cy Phillips to sell my home. I had initially thought I would try to save money by going the FSBO route, but after a couple of weeks of that I became frustrated with the process. I was on somewhat of a schedule because of building another home, so I brought in Cy and within two weeks we had a buyer! Cy helped me understand the process, gave great advice on staging, kept me informed before and after every showing and at every stage during negotiations and the sale, and helped me get the best price possible for my home. His flat fee arrangement helped me to maximize proceeds to put toward my dream home. Thank you, Cy!"

"When we were looking to sell our house we wanted to partner with an agent that would not only work with us to get the deal done but also understood how to utilize technology and digital marketing to best position ourselves in an evolving market. Cy understands that real-estate isn't the same game as it was even ten years ago. Gone are the days of open houses and huge Realtor fees. With his outstanding service and market knowledge he was able to deliver in our move from Urbandale to Clive"

Serving West Des Moines, Waukee, Clive, Urbandale, and the surrounding suburbs has allowed me to become very familiar with the area. I'd love the opportunity to show you why I call Des Moines home.
