Philip J. Vita Certified Luxury Home Marketing Specialist
I am a life-long resident of Winchester and live here currently with my wife and only son, Preston. I have been an active member of many community organizations over the past 20+ years. I am the founder and previous owner of Winchester Rubbish Removal which I began in approximately 1993 and grew from the ground up. In 2001 I began a new endeavor to later be known as Regional Rubbish Removal. After the successful sale of these two prior businesses I refocused my efforts on the real estate industry.

“It was refreshing to work with someone that has a passion for his job.”
"Our prospective is unique in that we completed five transactions with Mr. Vita in recent history. In three transactions we were the buyer and in two transactions the seller. In every instance we placed our trust in Mr. Vita and are pleased to report our satisfaction with the outcome. When selling our home, Phil developed an innovative plan designed to attract local real estate agent interest. The outcome was successful, three offers to purchase our property for “at or above asking price” within a day of the first open house to the general public. It was refreshing to work with someone that has a passion for his job. Phil enjoys the challenge of preparing property for sale or for occupancy. In the preparation for selling our home Phil coordinated landscaping, installation of a heating system, asbestos removal, painting, refinishing floor, replacing electrical fixtures and bathroom plumbing. Coordinating this effort requires good general contracting skills, and confidence, Phil utilizes these skills when representing us as buyers, He helped us to calculate realistic costs for items in need of repair and remained supportive of our project after the transaction was completed. With Phil it is a relationship, not a transaction.When the opportunity presents itself, we confidently recommend Phil to anyone that asks our opinion." -Seller/Buyer, DZ
“He has exceeded our expectations of what a realtor should do on our behalf”
"We have worked with Phil on 3 separate homes, and he has exceeded our expectations of what a realtor should do on our behalf each time. He is there to help you through every step of the process and guide you, not push you into a great decision. His advice on how to stage our homes to sell at top dollar was priceless. On our last house went for well over asking because of Phil's help and negotiations. I would highly recommend Philip and the Vita Realty Group." -Seller, LG&JG
“Selling and buying a house is never an easy thing to do, but they made this entire experience completely painless.”
"I can not say enough about the team of Philip Vita and his assistant Amanda Siciliano. From the very beginning, they helped my husband and I through the tough process of selling and buying a home. They thoroughly explained how they came up with the local comps, what they thought we should list our house for and why and how the entire process was going to run. From beautiful pictures and videos they took of our house for the internet, to stunning take-away documents they created for our showings, to the calendar of important dates moving forward and the phone and email notifications when a showing was requested, it was all so easy and efficient. Once the offers came in, the method of reviewing the offers was overwhelming, but Philip and Amanda broke it down into terms we could easily understand and they took away our fear of making the wrong decision. They fought for us to get top dollar for our house and to make the closing procedure work for our family. No sooner did they help us sell our current home, but then they immediately turned their efforts into helping us find our new home. We had a lot of things on our wish list and they never shied away from trying to get us everything we wanted and more. They knew the entire Winchester market and exactly which houses we should get in to see right away. We are happy to say that they were able to find us our new dream home. Again, during the offer process, they did everything they could to keep our budget in mind and to make sure to get us the best deal possible. We are so thankful to them for everything they have done for us over the last few months. Selling and buying a house is never an easy thing to do, but they made this entire experience completely painless." -Seller/Buyer, TS&DS
“Philip Vita knows what he is doing!”
"Philip Vita knows what he is doing! I can not say enough about his knowledge in real estate." -Buyer, NG
“Philip Vita adds value to every step of the purchase and sale process.”
"I have extensive experience with Philip Vita as both my Buyers and Listing Agent. His biggest strengths are his ability to creatively visualize, propose and implement sales strategies. His vast knowledge of local markets makes him an excellent resource for even the most experienced home buyer. His character, work ethic and cooperative attitude make him a pleasure to work with. Philip Vita adds value to every step of the purchase and sale process. I give him my highest of recommendations." -Seller/Buyer, JZ
“Phil and his assistant, Amanda are judged to be a brilliant realtor who selected a brilliant assistant to provide us with such expertise, knowledge, hard work, and superb communication that it could only be a win-win situation.”
"Phil and his assistant, Amanda are judged to be a brilliant realtor who selected a brilliant assistant to provide us with such expertise, knowledge, hard work, and superb communication that it could only be a win-win situation. We appreciated two sets of skills that were very evident. His communication skills were exceptional. We never waited for more than 5 minutes to have a question answered or a phone call returned. Phil is an expert listener, which resulted in letting us feel empowered during the entire process. The second set of expert skills were his psychology or as someone else said his negotiation skills. He always had our best interest in mind when setting the listing price, receiving and accepting offers, signing the P&S, and ultimately closing on a home that we loved, and had lived in for 29 years. The process was seamless." -Seller, CP
“You both were great.”
"Thank you both for the hard work and getting us the most money for our little 3 bedroom cape in Stoneham across from a commercial piece of property that is an eye soar. You both were great." -Seller, MS
“Phil is an asset to the profession and the community”
"From the moment Phil introduced himself, he was focused on our requirements and was able to provide useful and informative advice that I’ve never previously received from a Realtor. This is our third purchase or sale within the last five years and I can tell you that Phil’s knowledge, perspective and commitment to client service are unmatched. What impressed me most with Phil was his commitment to finding the property that met all of our needs. He tirelessly researched each property we had an interest in, and I can tell you there were many, and he was able to provide provocative advice about each homes history, location and value. In short, Phil is an asset to the profession and the community and I look forward to working with Phil on our future real estate needs." -Seller/Buyer, JP
“We are pleased to have eliminated the uncertainty that existed prior to selling our property.”
"We are pleased to have eliminated the uncertainty that existed prior to selling our property. We are thankful that we had the support of REMAX Leading Edge and in particular your capable agent Philip Vita. When the opportunity presents itself, we confidently recommend Phil to anyone that asks our opinion. We own a Company that is in a real estate related field and as such we are exposed to the process. Still after financing several billion dollars in real estate transactions over the years, we were truly impressed by what we learned and what we experienced working with Philip Vita." -Sellers, D&J
