For almost two years, Phillip J Bailey – Shorewest Realtors, has been working to help people. A certified LGBT Business Enterprise by the National LGBT Chamber, Phillip has been an active and engaged Wisconsin LGBT Chamber members for quite some time. For this week’s Member Spotlight, Phillip Bailey tells us a bit more about him, his passion, and some other fun facts!
Why did you get started in your business?
I started in real estate because I loved homes. I stay in real estate because I love working with people. There is nothing more exciting that showing someone a home and seeing them do what I like to call “the dance”. They start to place furniture, talk about changes, and I know that we are now in their future home. My role from that moment forward is to help them through the process of buying that home. When it comes to selling a home, my design background greatly help my clients in getting their home on the market.
Why did you decide to join the Wisconsin LGBT Chamber?
I love all the programs. I was involved with the Chamber when I worked at a large corporation so when I started my own business I knew I wanted to be a member.
What do you enjoy most about what you do?
It is really all about people. I get so much pleasure from helping people through the transition from one place to live to another.
What’s the best piece of business advice you’ve ever been given?
Don’t treat people the way you want to be treated, treat people they way THEY want to be treated.
How do you relax?
Working out; life can pile on a lot of stress and I love to leave all the stress at the gym.
If you had to choose another career today, what would it be and why?
I’d be a Private Chef. I love to cook and entertain so I think I would be good at being someone’s private chef.
