Meet Phillip Salem

With his trademark combination of optimism, wit, and perseverance, Phillip Salem is one of the most sought-after agents in New York City. (There’s a reason he’s known as #NotYourBasicBroker, after all.) Though originally from Ohio, Phillip was drawn to the cultural diversity, art scene, and beautiful highrises of the Big Apple, moving to the city 14 years ago.

Shortly after graduating from The Fashion Institute of Technology, Phillip opened a designer clothing boutique in the Meatpacking District called OWEN. It was here he acquired valuable customer service and business skills as well as more deeply developed his natural talent for design and style. After closing the store, Phillip transitioned from selling clothing to selling a lifestyle, diving into real estate.

Phillip prides themself on being 100% authentic and transparent at all times, and clients— who affectionately refer to him as “Agent P”—consistently note his outgoing, friendly, and trustworthy personality. Phillip believes that buying a home should be a fun and exciting process, which is why he injects warmth and passion into everything he does. He aims to go above and beyond for each one of his clients, making a positive impact on their lives and giving them an unparalleled experience.

Phillip currently lives with his husband and two dogs: Chiquita Banana and Cookie Dough. Some of their favorite pastimes include lounging by the pool, traveling, and sitting front row at Mariah Carey concerts. Phillip is also passionate about animals and giving back to the community, and can often be found volunteering at Animal Haven in SoHo and fostering senior dogs.

Animal Advocacy is one of my biggest passions. One of my favorite things to do is volunteer at Animal Haven which is a dog and cat shelter in Soho.

I am not only an agent for people, I am also an agent for many NYC animals, helping them find their forever homes.

Please support the cause by donating to this amazing shelter by clicking below. If you live in New York and would love to volunteer at the shelter, sign up for one of their orientation classes on their site. Looking forward to seeing you at the shelter!
