About Philip Mervis
Summit County Realtor

Extensive Summit County Service

I am grateful to be part of this beautiful mountain community and to be able to significantly give back to it.  In that latter regard, volunteering locally is a core part of who I am.  My involvement helping others here in Summit County is also the thing regarding which I'm most proud.

Starting more than 15 years ago, I helped a number of local nonprofits improve their online experiences, including Advocates for Victims of Assault, Adopt an Angel and Education Foundation of the Summit.  As a past co-director of the Evo3 Foundation, I had the opportunity to assist local nonprofit organizations as well as help kids and senior citizens in better utilizing technology.  Having enjoyed working with seniors so much, I currently serve the Summit Senior Center as vice-president of its board of directors and as the organizer for its tech help team.  Helping Summit County seniors during the Covid pandemic has truly been one of the most challenging, yet rewarding, nonprofit experiences of my life.  I'd love to help you become a part of our fantastic community and make your own Summit County dreams become a reality.

Unparalled Client Service

Buying or selling a home is an important decision.  Having lived in Summit County for 22 years and served as a realtor for more than 17 of them, I possess the local knowledge and experience to assist with your real estate needs.  And, my client reviews demonstrate my dedication to providing only the very highest level of service to everyone with whom I work.

In addition to serving as a Summit County realtor for more than 17 years, I've also practiced as a licensed Colorado attorney.  While I don't serve as a lawyer for my real estate clients, that background nonetheless allows me to provide the high level of detail orientation needed to expertly manage your real estate transaction. Additionally, I have considerable corporate experience, which includes having led client management teams in achieving a broad range of customer service goals.  Furthermore, I am part-owner of other local businesses that are adjacent to the real estate space, including Summit Local Agent (serving self-managed short-term rental owners) and Summit 3D Tours (providing virtual tours and aerial photography to local realtors).

From these combined fields of varied expertise, I developed a client-focused perspective that is critical in bringing your Summit County property search to a successful close.  If you'd like to discuss the local market or want to visit any Summit County property, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Employing the Right Online Tools

With a background that includes work in the technology sector, I have built websites for a variety of Summit County nonprofits on a volunteer basis as well as the site you're currently visiting. This site provides the most complete source of Summit County MLS listings currently available, and I continually iterate its design to make it as easy as possible to use. Whether you're local or outside Summit County, I employ a variety of online resources to more closely connect you with the local real estate process. My sole aim is to clarify and simplify your transaction. This innovative approach is focused on providing you with true excellence in client service and communication.

We found Philip through his website when we started our search for a 2nd home / STR. It was clear on his site he was extremely knowledgeable on the... STR situation in Summit County, so we gave him a call and working with him was truly a phenomenal experience. Impressive doesn't even begin to explain his knowledge on real estate, STRs and pretty much everything Summit County. He went above and beyond a realtor in my opinion, to include after our closing and continuing to help with the STR process.He made us feel comfortable throughout the entire process. He never pressured us, and always encouraged us to take time to think about decisions. We never felt it was about a sale for him, and quite the opposite in that he was always looking out for our best interest. In one instance, after we were under contract, he was reviewing HOA documents and found something of concern (which in full disclosure we had the same documents and we would never have caught ourselves). He not only got us an answer, but got us on the phone with the HOA president so we could hear it for ourselves.Philip is someone you instantly know is honest, dedicated and cares about his clients.read more

The knowledge that Philip was able to extend to us as we purchased a condo in Summit County was outstanding. His time and patience went above and... beyond. He helped us navigate the puzzles of short term rentals and all the regulations involved with this. His website has a wealth of data as well. While my husband and I thought we knew what we wanted, Philip showed us the full range of properties available to allow us to make the best decision for us. We enjoyed working with Philip and would do so again in a heartbeat. Highly recommended!!read more

Philip Mervis is highly recommended as a Summit County and surrounding area realtor. Throughout the process, the search, viewing different... properties, the contract phase and transition into the closing was flawless. He is very detailed oriented, personable, and always willing to answer our questions. His expertise in all phases of the real estate process is impressive and he sincerely wants you to be comfortable with your decision.During our search and property viewings, he assisted in our decision process by comparing and contrasting the areas within our criteria. He went beyond the typical agent by introducing and familiarizing us with the different neighborhoods and making good recommendations on restaurants, businesses, services and community activities. Because we were doing much of this transaction remotely, his organization skills and expertise made the process proceed smoothly. He helped by sending photos, communicating often, and making us comfortable knowing the details and process was moving forward towards the closing. Even though the deal is done, we will be keeping in contact with Phil knowing that we have made a new friend. Your decision to work with him will be a good one.read more

We had a fantastic experience working with Phil. Even though we were looking for a smaller property in Summit County, he always made time to answer... our questions - no matter how long it took, including nights and weekends. He's extremely knowledgeable in the fast changing short term rental rules in Summit County, and his expertise in this area was invaluable to us. The best part is he's a very genuine and caring person. He made us feel comfortable and we never felt pressured in our decisions. He has great relationships with local lenders, other agents, HOA boards, etc and was happy to leverage those relationships to help us any way he could. I'd recommend Phil to anyone looking to buy or sell real estate in Summit County, and can't thank him enough for all his help!read more

We worked with Phil on two transactions in Summit County and couldn't be happier with having him be our realtor. His willingness to do whatever it... takes to find the right property then complete a transaction makes him the perfect realtor among a sea of average realtors. I should mention that our two transactions were 6.5 years apart and we received the same consistently good service from Phil for both transactions which says a lot about his character. I can't recommend Phil enough if you need a Summit County realtor!read more

I have known Phil Mervis for several years through volunteer work at the Summit Senior Center. Of the many realtors in the county, we went with Phil... as he had the right mojo. Our residence had three bedrooms and three bathrooms. It also had a walk-out basement. Phil had drone pictures taken of the outside of the residence. Once everything was out of the house, he took pictures of the inside. Those pictures allowed the prospective buyer to look at the room, then go to the window and see the view outside. The sales price, after several offers, sold for top dollar. Phil gets five out of five stars.read more
We have been through two transactions with Phil and he is the best of the best compared to other realtors we have worked with in the past. Phil is... very responsive, doesn't miss a detail and creates a friendship with his clients that last beyond closing. We know we can count on him for anything and everything house related well after the transaction is complete. I highly recommend Phil!read more

Phil helped us find the right property during a very challenging market for buyers in Summit county, giving us many video tours, and heading to a... newly listed property on extremely short notice to make sure we had a chance to see any property that came on the market and caught our attention.After having been a real estate investor and involved in the market for a number of years, Phil has been the most thorough, honest, and helpful agent I have worked with. He was keenly focused on helping us find a place we loved at a price that was within our budget and in line with current market prices.While not a replacement for a contractor, he was knowledgeable about home features, structure, systems, and common failure points to help us foresee potential issues and needed repairs with the properties we saw.We really appreciated the help Phil provided to us during our home search and highly recommend him to anyone looking for a new home in Summit county or the surrounding area!read more

We were so glad we found Philip. He was ALL-IN and working hard to help us sell our house. We were very impressed with how responsive he was and... extremely professional. He was "One-stop Shopping". He staged our house and provided wonderful pictures to enhance our property. When the amazing offers came in, he helped us navigate through our many options. It took less than a week to sell. Thanks, Philip!!!read more

Phil has yet again proven to be the best realtor in the history of all realtors! He has helped us both buy and sell homes in Summit County, CO. He... most recently helped us sell our single family home and I’m so happy we had him right by our side throughout the entire process! He is extremely knowledgeable, professional, and just such a great person. He helped us to get 12 over asking offers within a few short days of listing! Crazy!

I found Phil by simply searching the internet for best realtors in summit county - and that is exactly what I got after purchasing my first home with... him. Phil was extremely helpful in educating me and also being sure to not put any pressure on me, he spent hours and hours going to different places with us explaining the process, and was probably the most responsive person I have ever worked with in my career and personal life. Phil even suggested writing up contracts at any hour of the day/night for places we may not even submit so we could get an idea and learning of the process - above and beyond. To land a home in summit in this market you need to be right on top of it, and Phil is exactly that. With his backgrounds in tech, law, real estate, you name it, he brings an entirely complete professional background through all aspects of the transaction. Professionalism and realty excellence aside, Phil is just an awesome person to be around and keeps great energy throughout the highs and lows of the home buying cycle.read more

We worked with Phil for a year and a half, closing on a new construction condo. Purchasing a new construction property can be very confusing and... frustrating at times. Phil did an excellent job of helping us every step of the way. Phil made this transaction stress free. He always represented our best interest to the builders and developers, which often resulted in a positive outcome for us. Phil’s eye for detail saved us time and money by catching things in the contract we had missed. Without Phil, this process would have been convoluted, frustrating, and extremely stressful. Phil is extremely knowledgeable, detailed oriented, and proactive. We cannot recommend Phil enough.read more

We've worked with quite a few realtors over the years. They were all competent professionals who did their job well. Phil Mervis, however, set a new... standard. He is meticulously thorough, immediately responsive, easy to work with, and an excellent mediator and problem solver (skills which made the process of selling our home almost stress-free). He approaches his work with intelligence and commitment and goes not only the extra mile but well beyond it. We were extremely impressed!read more

Philip was our agent when we purchased our condo 14 years ago and he was the agent when we sold it this year and he was excellent in both cases. He... is very knowledgeable about the market and provided valuable insights into how to market our condo. He went out of his way to help us when we had problems with our remodeling project. I would recommend Philip to anyone looking for a real estate agent in Summit County.read more

Phil was a fantastic resource while searching for a Summit County condo. He showed me multiple different neighborhoods and buildings and went through... the pros and cons of each based on what I told him my preferences were. He was very honest and even let me know which ones wouldn't be a good fit for me while we were touring places. He wasn't pushy and just trying to get a sale, he was very helpful and wanted to be sure I was getting the correct place. In the end we found the right place for me well below my original budget!read more

Where to begin? We first worked with Phil 7 years ago when looking for a home in Summit County. He listened to our wants and was incredibly patient... and attentive to our needs. To say that my husband is picky would be an understatement, but Phil stuck with us and finally found the home which we would love for 7 years. When we decided to relocate, of course Phil was the first person we called. He worked closely with us to determine the best marketing strategy even in this time of Covid and all the difficulties this brought with it. We sold our home in short time, and were grateful to have Phil always there to help us through the process and support us in every way possible. Not only was he the perfect realtor for us, but we have come to consider him a wonderful friend.read more
