Unlike most other agents, I don’t lock you down to any long-term listing contracts. I believe that I need to earn your business every day that I am working for you. If there’s ever a time where you’re not happy with the service in which I provide, just let me know and we can shake hands as friends and go our separate ways.




Stop over paying.

% If I bring the buyer

This is a win-win scenario for you. 


For a lot of people, they would still like the option of selling their own home and saving money or realtor commissions if they can. I believe they should be able to do that very thing even while listed with me. My Smart Seller Program allows you to market your own home to your friends, family and co-workers. 



I'm an investor who normally negotiates and transacts all of my own real estate purchases...but, I quickly found out that selling a property, was a completely different animal. I made the decision of attempting to sell, my newly renovated villa 'on the water', by listing it myself. At the time, interest rates had just started to climb and I had to move quickly in order to capitalize - I though 'how hard could it be to sell a beautiful property?...No big deal - sells itself right?' Wrong...BIG Mistake!! it was literally the worst decision I could've made. No lie, I was immediately inundated with cold calls, from what felt like a bazilion realtors, nonstop! I mean all sorts of characters, for which most seemed like they were probably new. Anyway after a few weeks worth of this 'madnes', I had the opportunity of crossing paths with Adela Philipson. She was motivated, professional, knowledgeable, and honest! She even had access to a few resources that I didn't even have myself; which I felt were crucial if not key, in getting top dollar for my home. So...whether you're looking to sell your home for the first time or have even a bad experience in a previous sale, I'd highly recommend that you reach out to Adela. Believe me, the worst thing you can do, is let your property sit on the market; hand it to Adela, she knows what it takes to get you closed! - Fernando T.
Adela Philipson deserves 10 stars. She has local knowledge and is attentive to detail. We appreciate
her frequent communication and her speedy responses. It took a while with homes going quickly,
but Adela was on top of it the whole time. We closed quickly. It’s our dream retirement home and I
cannot say thank you enough! -Evelyn V., Review
There are some many excellent qualities I can say about Adela! However, I will try to keep it concise... Adela was not referred by anyone I knew. She just one day popped up by a search I did in a website of Boca RatĂłn Properties and replied to my email with a non-generic response. From that day on, her communication was on point in all the sense of the word. Adela has the a passion for her career that I believe not many people have in this line of work. Her knowledge of real estate, active listening skills and proactive attitude are things that are key to helping you find your dream property without getting the feeling of being pushed for a commission. She also recommended me the perfect fit for my lender. I now consider Adela my friend, who happens to be a realtor! :) -Alberto T, Review
Adela is a very hands on realtor! Highly recommend! -Allison Barker, Review
I loved working with Adela! The transaction went smooth and it wouldn’t have been possible without her. I look forward to working with her in the near future ❤️ -Annette Vigo, Google Review


 One day a charming lady knocked on our door and the rest is history. Adela Philipson was canvassing the entire Coral Ridge area. When we decided to sell a property we had four choices of agents. She was by far the best prepared with the best attitude. She directed a totally never before seen scenario including pre-inspection and a multitude of showings. Her suggestions for a successful sale were all excellent and possible. The total communication was mind blowing. Her marketing of the property almost made me want to buy it back! She is a treasure and when we decide to sell any of our rentals or this waterfront house she will definitely be our agent again. - Don V. & Bob C., Letter Review
Adela was an absolute pleasure to work with. Seamless transaction from beginning to end! Hope we can work together again in the near future! - Rob Yacovone, Google Review

We were extremely pleased with the professional service we received from Adela Philipson from start to finish, especially since we were living out of state and trying to find a home in a very hot market. She was always responsive to calls day or night and flexible to accommodate our last minute trips to Florida so we could find our perfect second home. She was extremely knowledgeable of the area we were looking in as well as current market prices which helped tremendously through the offering process where many offers were being accepted at the same time. She made everything easy and smooth with our purchase. We highly recommend her. She was great to work with. - Avery Jones, Google Review

Working with Adela to purchase our first home was a wonderful experience! She was very attentive to everything we wanted on our “must have” list and provided great communication during the process. She was available when we had any questions and we couldn’t have asked for a better real estate agent. We would highly recommend her to anybody looking to purchase or even sell their home. Keep up the great work Adela!! - Lisa Carrasco, Google Review
