J. Philip & Team

About The J. Philip Team

J Philip Faranda and his team have been the Realtor of choice for more than one hundred successful closings of divorce sales throughout Westchester, Putnam, Dutchess and the Hudson Valley since 2005.

We’ll preface this with the truth that no firm likes divorces. Selling a home for divorcing clients is not easy. However, having been on both sides of the matter, it is our experience that divorcing home sellers are currently under served by our industry. We choose to step up. And while it isn’t easy in many cases, the sensitivity required, the opportunity to truly help people going through a rough period of their lives, and the sense of contribution are all gratifying.

Fairness and neutrality are crucial in the sale of matrimonial real estate. Using his or her agent often simply doesn’t work. A neutral 3rd party who understands that both sides are the client is of paramount importance. Being available and communicative is another must have, and what we term agility is another added value. By agility, we mean that we are not chained to a 9-5 business model where all calls after 5 are returned the next business day. We are in real estate. We don’t pretend that bankers hours work with our clientele. The same goes for showings, getting documents signed and delivered, managing showings and dealing with buyer agents, and all the other vagaries that are wanted and needed in our industry.

Confidentiality is another fundamental requirement of a strong brokerage in a divorce sale. We will always advise our clients to remain silent about the reason for selling. Buyers understand what an empty den and closet mean. The markings of a divorce are supremely costly and add to the loss and headaches of the transaction. Adding stress to an already difficult situation is an anathema to us. We want to protect our clients from these pitfalls.

Perhaps most importantly, our track record of excellence is something we are very proud of. We will happily provide you with references and documentation of transactions in as transparent a manner as possible.
