Keller Williams Chicago Lincoln Park
Phil Byers is a vital asset at Keller Williams Chicago Lincoln Park, acting as both Realtor and productivity coach. “My team allows me to focus on my sales business in the mornings so I have time to coach and develop 30 other agents in my office,” he explains, adding that helping agents grow as Realtors is his true passion. “Seeing new agents accomplish their goals through building a business is what gets me up in the morning.”
Over the course of his 15 years in real estate, Byers has ranked among the top 1 percent of Chicago Association of Realtors and been awarded multiple sales awards from Keller Williams Realty International. “Our success comes from our commitment to client service. My team works very hard to ensure every transaction meets our clients’ high expectations,” he says.
Byers attributes his success in part to his Chicago market knowledge and the level of service his team offers. “Anyone can open doors,” he says. “You have to know your market in order to add value for your clients. And you have to leave your own agenda at the door — it’s about helping our clients achieve their goals.”
Byers is a member of the Heart of Lincoln Square Neighborhood Association and the Lincoln Square Chamber of Commerce. Along with his wife, he volunteers for a number of animal organizations, including One Tail at a Time, Alive Rescue and Audubon Great Lakes.
Byers is a vintage Star Wars toy collector and is obsessed with improving his tennis game, as well as his guitar and piano-playing abilities.
