phillip marquis

Uncompromising Commitment to Our Clients


Born and raised in the Metro Washington DC area, Phillip is no stranger to rapid growth and highly competitive housing markets. He cut his teeth in real estate early, buying and selling properties in Northern Virginia, and has been personally vested in the market since 2003.

In 2012 he and his family, like so many others, fell in love with North Carolina. They packed up and made Raleigh their new home. Much like their investments in DC, Phillip has purchased and managed multiple properties in the triangle area.

Real estate has always been a personal passion; however, Phillip’s professional background was in sales of a different sort. Phillip honed his sales and negotiating skills with one of the world’s most prolific brands, Porsche. During the course of his career with Porsche he was consistently top ranked worldwide in both sales and customer service. He has applied the same zeal for relationships, diligence, and tenacious negotiation skills to every aspect of his successful real estate business.

Committed to offering a higher level of real estate service, Phillip's firm has developed a robust wheelhouse of offerings for his clients that include: top-notch digital and print marketing and advertising, phenomenal photography, drone footage and videography, unmatched staging and interior marketing, matterport, and custom signage. That coupled with Phillip's 24/7 client availability and negotiation expertise (finely tuned over the last decade) has resulted in Phillip's success as one of the top ranking producers in the area.  RECENT SALES

Wes Stichweh

Real Estate Broker

Like many born and raised in the Midwest, Wes knows the value of hard work and takes a great deal of pride in his performance for his clients. He began his career in Real Estate Finance before transitioning to Recruiting and Staffing where he learned the art of pairing the right people with the right place. Before too long, his love for people and faith in God landed him working for a large church in beautiful Charleston, South Carolina where he also invested himself in the Real Estate Rental market. Wes jumped into the Medical Equipment industry in 2013 which brought him and his wife to Raleigh where they have bought and sold homes in the hustle of Downtown Raleigh, the suburbs of Cary, and the laid-back country feel of Duncan.


Throughout his career, he’s been one of, if not the top producer in his fields. He devotes his success in multiple industries to an unwavering commitment to excellence and honesty, good communication, and a genuine care for the person he’s working with. Some people care about achievement or status or money – Wes cares about the person in front of him. When you put together his experience of high dollar hospital business negotiations, matching the right people with the right place, and care for people’s best interest, you have a good guy on your side in your homebuying or selling experience.


He's been married to his wife Lia since 2011 and they have four children (all less than three years apart) and a pet pig named Kevin Bacon…true statement! They help lead their local church as Elders and love being part of the Holly Springs and Fuquay Communities. Keep an eye out for his family walking the pig around downtown Fuquay and say hey!
