Philip J. Vita Certified Luxury Home Marketing Specialist
I am a life-long resident of Winchester and 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 launched in 1993 and grew from the ground up. I then started another 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.

“Phil is truly an expert in the field and if there is anyone that could navigate the real estate world during these times of uncertainty and change, it is the Vita Realty Group.”
Phil and Amanda assisted us in the buying and selling process. They are extremely knowledgeable, professional and always available. They made the process seamless and we are so thankful to now be in our dream home. Phil is truly an expert in the field and if there is anyone that could navigate the real estate world during these times of uncertainty and change, it is the Vita Realty Group. - Winchester Seller & Buyer
“He is someone who cares about the clients and their well being more then anything else, and that is such an incredible trait.”
I cannot even begin to tell you how incredible our experience with Phil was. If we had worked with anyone else, I know we would not of gotten our first home. He knows the business inside and out, clearly an expert in his field. He took the time to explain every detail to us since we were new to this, and made us feel comfortable through the entire process. He also went out of his way to make sure nothing was missed, things we didn’t think of right away, he made sure was already taken care of by the time we did. He is someone who cares about the clients and their well being more then anything else, and that is such an incredible trait. I HIGHLY recommend Phil, you will not be disappointed! - North Reading Buyer
“As for the sale, the whole process was seamless.”
Phil and Amanda were excellent throughout the entire process. We used them to buy our condo 4 years ago and this time to purchase a house and sell the condo. For the purchase, Phil is very knowledgable about what to look for in a home, pointing out things that we would never have noticed but could cause us major headaches down the line, as well as major investments and details the seller made that may not catch your eye at first. As for the sale, the whole process was seamless. They gave unlimited showings throughout the week and had a great photographer for the photos. Overall, they were both very responsive to all our requests and were complete professionals throughout. I would recommend them to anyone looking to buy or sell. - Melrose Buyers & Sellers
“He worked tirelessly to help me find the perfect home for my family, zealously represented me during the negotiation process, and made the home purchase process go as smoothly as possible.”
I initially met Phil at an open house for which he was the seller’s agent. I was so impressed by his knowledge and understanding of the Winchester housing market that I asked him to represent me as a buyer’s agent. He exceeded my expectations. He worked tirelessly to help me find the perfect home for my family, zealously represented me during the negotiation process, and made the home purchase process go as smoothly as possible. While I do not plan to move anytime in the near future, if I do, I will definitely ask Phil to represent me again. - Winchester Buyer
“We hope to stay in our new home for a long time, but if for any reason we don’t, we know who we will call right away.”
We can say without any hesitation that we would recommend Phil and Amanda to absolutely anyone buying a home in the area. Our experience was incredible, and we are so happy we found them. Being first-time home buyers, we needed someone who would walk us through each step with understanding and compassion. Phil and Amanda answered hundreds of questions for us without a hint of hesitation, and made us feel like we were their top priority. Buying a home can be stressful, but we can’t imagine doing it without these folks. We had been watching the market for over a year without an agent, and as soon as we found what we were looking for, we contacted Phil. He and Amanda got us into the home within 48 hours, and two days later, we had an accepted offer in a competitive situation. Phil’s methods and strategy for making an offer and negotiating are absolutely top notch. They walked us through the entire process of the offer, the inspection, the P&S, issues the sellers had to take care of for us, and the closing. At every step of the way, we felt like Phil and Amanda REALLY cared that we got the right home for us, and that says everything about a real estate agent. Above all else, both of them were incredibly accessible, and would get back to us with answers in a tremendously short amount of time. Phil and Amanda repeatedly showed us a strong commitment to providing excellent service and making us feel like we were taken care of. We hope to stay in our new home for a long time, but if for any reason we don’t, we know who we will call right away. We couldn’t be happier! - Buyers, JK&EK
“‘Who is this guy?’ We now know Phil is THE GUY to handle your real estate transaction of any kind.”
Phil and Amanda are PHENOMENAL!!! Within just 4 weeks (yes, 4 weeks, not 4 months!) Phil perfectly facilitated 2 significant real estate transactions for us: our purchasing our dream condo within Winchester and our immediately downsizing from (and selling in record time!) our 5 bedroom Winchester home of 33 years. Within just 2 days of our finding and buying our condo, Phil had listed and found the perfect buyer for our home. This short time line is all the more amazing in that this happened between October and November (not typically deemed prime real estate market months) and that Phil accomplished our home sale at top market value and without any open house or property staging or involving other realty offices. Phil and Amanda honored our every wish in this process and earned our trust and friendship. Each of these two ral estate transactions was handled by Phil and Amanda with the utmost care, discretion and attention to detail. Phil has an extraordinary capacity to listen and to negotiate deals that are beyond measure. He is keenly aware of market value and, with his superb business acumen and integrity, is a master of successful negotiation. Choosing the right realtor was very important to us. Phil and Amanda exceeded our every expectation. When we found our in-demand dream condo here within Winchester, we had full confidence in Phil's ability to secure the deal for us. Phil and Amanda's 24/7 availability, rapid response and extraordinary willingness to provide access on relatively short notice made this process so exceptionally easy and, yes, painless! Phil's vast knowledge and array of contacts, coupled with his amazing people skills, are huge assets. Amanda's professionalism, beaming personality, helpful suggestions, consistently timely follow-through and extraordinary availability along with her superb organizational and people skills were such gifts to us. Their combined talents and their dedication to their clients render Phil and Amanda a stellar duo! We cannot imagine such incredibly fast, successful results with any realty team other than Phil and Amanda. We have never, in our many years in Winchester, met a realtor with as much "can do" commitment and solid performance as Phil. Of note, we remember first seeing Phil Vita's name around town and thinking, "Who is this guy?" We now know Phil is THE GUY to handle your real estate transaction of any kind. Phil and Amanda, we are profoundly grateful for your outstanding customer service. Thanks to you, we are in our dream home here in Winchester. We are truly blessed. - Happy Winchester Seller/Buyer
“Phil and Amanda are amazing!”
Phil and Amanda are amazing! I can't recommend them enough. They have great experience, very knowledgeable on homes and the market, detail-oriented, and made the whole buying process extremely easy. They are the best agents that anyone can ask for. - Buyer, GH
“Available 24/7 by phone, text, email, home visits (do they sleep?)”
Phil & Amanda are SENSATIONAL! I first met Phil at an open house and knew immediately he was the person I could rely on to seamlessly navigate the purchasing process. Phil's expertise, professionalism, honesty, dependability, compassion, personality (the list goes on) were the seal-the-deal ingredients that led me to my dream home. The right condo, for me, meant much more than specs and square footage; it was my new beginning, and Phil took that to heart. Throughout the purchasing process, Phil & Amanda have become confidantes and friends. Available 24/7 by phone, text, email, home visits (do they sleep?), they ensure every bit of the process is well-managed and efficiently moving forward. Beyond the closing, Phil & Amanda are ripe with contractor recommendations, oft-forgotten pointers, and sincere interest in my to do list status. I'd (almost!) think I'm their only client. Whatever you may need - floors, kitchens, plumbing, paint, closing attorneys, you name it - Phil has well-vetted contacts who produce beautiful work. Amanda cannot go unmentioned for coordinating flawless operations start to finish. Phil & Amanda's attention to detail, likeability, and genuine commitment to my happiness and well-being left a permanent impression. It's without hesitation that I recommend this dynamic duo; they have earned my unending thanks and praise for all they've done to inject my new beginning with confidence in and gratitude for the process. - Happy Winchester Buyer
“I could write a novel about how wonderful our experience with Phil and Amanda was but here are the cliff notes…”
I could write a novel about how wonderful our experience with Phil and Amanda was but here are the cliff notes: **When we first reached out to Phil we had an idea of what we wanted in a house but had no idea how to navigate the real-estate market. Phil and Amanda sat down with us and explained the nuts and bolts of the whole process and made sure we were comfortable navigating next steps at all times. They also listened to what we were looking for in a home, catching all the finer details, and even suggesting an additional town that we had not considered before. **Throughout the whole process they treated us like we were family. They were so patient with all of our questions, they listened to all of our feedback after an open house and usually pointed out the smaller, but more important details that we missed. When we met other realtors, Phil was protective, like he didn’t want anyone to sell us on a house that wasn’t absolutely perfect for us. **When it came time to make an offer Phil was incredible. He advocated the best deal for us and kept us in the loop at all times. We always knew what was happening which made waiting to hear if the offer was accepted that much more bearable. I can’t stress enough how great it was to work with Phil and Amanda. We wouldn’t work with anyone else. - Buyer, EB & JB
“I would use their services every time and highly recommend Vita Realty.”
Phil Vita is as good as it gets in real estate. His knowledge and experience keep you in front of any competition in this current market. Phil and his assistant Amanda are both personable and professional. You feel assured they are looking out for your best interests throughout the process. Their response time is immediate and they took the stress out of buying a home. I would use their services every time and highly recommend Vita Realty. Their brand is excellence from start to finish. - Buyer, HR
“I cannot recommend Phil and Amanda enough. You can not go wrong working with them!”
My wife and I recently worked with Phil and Amanda to purchase a home in Winchester - I CANNOT RECOMMEND THEM ENOUGH! The two of them could not have been more knowledgeable about the market and were extremely attentive to our needs. They were a great team that went above and beyond throughout the process of purchasing the home. While I am certain Phil and Amanda are excellent "listing brokers", as a "buyer agents" they were extremely active in our search, thoughtful of what exactly we were looking for, and proactively provided opportunities that met our needs. Said another way, they did not wait for us (the buyer) to tell them what houses we wanted to see - they went out and sourced them! (most/many brokers do not possess this trait, which is invaluable to the process). Phil provided excellent representation for us as the buyers and negotiated extremely well on our behalf - he never put the sale (i.e. him getting paid) before our needs and getting us the best possible deal. Lastly, Phil knows EVERYONE and can provide great recommendations for anything you are looking for/need, ranging from lawyers to general contractors, electricians, landscapers, security system installers, and more.... All of which we took him up on! Again, I cannot recommend Phil and Amanda enough. You can not go wrong working with them! - Buyer, BP&HP
“Overall he made a complex process feel easy for me and I am very grateful for such a positive experience!”
I feel so fortunate to have had Philip and his team help me through the entire process of purchasing my first condo. They are very client-centered and always had my best interests in mind. Their professionalism and experience was much appreciated, especially through the handling of challenges that arose on the sellers side. Philip collaborated with all people involved (lawyers, mortgage broker, sellers representatives etc) and lines of communication were open at all times. Overall he made a complex process feel easy for me and I am very grateful for such a positive experience! I highly, highly recommend Philip to all home buyers. Buyer - VT
“Once on the market, it sold within a day, over asking price, with closing in 3 weeks!!”
It was a pleasure working with Phil and his associate Amanda!! I received excellent advice and superb service. I had to sell my in-laws condo quickly. He referred me to service providers who helped me remove junk, paint, and clean the condo prior to sale. Once on the market, it sold within a day, over asking price, with closing in 3 weeks!! Couldn't be happier with Phil and his team! - Seller, CM
“Not only are his negotiation skills unparalleled – but he and his team are an absolute pleasure to work with.”
My husband and I recently used Philip Vita and the Vita Realty Group to help us purchase a new home. Once we identified the home (like most in todays market) we were faced with the obstacle of a multiple offer situation. I dreaded that scenario from the moment we started our home search but Phil changed my outlook around from moment one. He had techniques and strategies that eased us throughout the process and inevitably made us successful. Not only are his negotiation skills unparalleled - but he and his team are an absolute pleasure to work with. Before purchasing our new home, we lived in the same home for almost 30 years. It was an emotional process for me to leave but Amanda and Phil were right by our side acting not only as professionals, but as friends. I can't say enough how much I valued them throughout every stage of the transaction. We are now prepping our previous home for sale and without question will be using them to sell it! They have already been a tremendous help to us with contractor recommendations and more. Thank you for everything!!!! - Seller/Buyer, AS & MS
“Throughout the entire process they made me feel as if I were their only client – or at the very least their most important client.”
I recently worked with Phil Vita, and his assistant Amanda Siciliano, to sell my home and to purchase another home. The Vita team is unique in my opinion. Their dedication, knowledge and responsiveness is unparalleled. Throughout the entire process they made me feel as if I were their only client - or at the very least their most important client. Phil skillfully negotiated on my behalf - selling my home for over asking price, and purchasing my new home below significantly below the asking price. Every time I had a question or concern either Phil or Amanda responded to me immediately. Even when dealing with a few difficult situations, Phil handled himself professionally and confidently and made the entire process stress-free for me. I would enthusiastically recommend the Vita team to anyone that is considering selling and/or purchasing property. - Seller/Buyer, LC
“It is very clear that they pride themselves on serving the client and do not settle for anything but client satisfaction.”
We had a great experience with the Vita Realty Group. It is very clear that they pride themselves on serving the client and do not settle for anything but client satisfaction. Their knowledge, presentation, professionalism, communication and responsiveness is top-notch (and I am not an easy customer). They had our best interest in mind throughout the process and made things as easy as possible. Phil's knowledge of the market, experience in the town and network is untouchable. I appreciated that they had done their research, had a clear strategy, listened to our priorities and together we came up with a successful game plan. Amanda was very pleasant to work with, organized and always one step ahead answering questions. I have nothing but positive things to say about Phil Vita and Amanda Siciliano's work. We would recommend them to family and friends without question. - Seller, MS
“I have worked with many of firms in the past but Amanda and Phil combined have more expertise than all of them combined.”
Phil and Amanda far exceeded our expectations with the quick sale of our condo. They were always kind and professional and had a great marketing strategy to maximize the sale. As a team, Amanda and Phil work great together, one of them is always available. I have worked with many of firms in the past but Amanda and Phil combined have more expertise than all of them combined. Thanks again, Amanda and Phil! - Seller, DW & SW
“They are with you every step of the way, offering support, accessibility, transparency and professionalism.”
Phil and Amanda truly offer the best of the best when it comes to real estate. Their knowledge of the market is unparalleled and their willingness to go above and beyond for their clients removes the stress from demanding process of buying and/or selling a home. They are with you every step of the way, offering support, accessibility, transparency and professionalism. More importantly, they really care – and it’s not just an act. They truly have your best interest at heart and value client relationships. My husband and I feel so lucky to have worked with them, and cannot recommend them enough! - Buyer, KV & RE
“We followed their advice and received multiple offers after being on the market for 1 week!”
Phil and Amanda helped us sell our home in late fall. They came to our house and gave us an evaluation and recommended some cosmetic changes to attract a wide range of buyers. They were very knowledgable about the area and had a data-driven sales strategy established with us. We followed their advice and received multiple offers after being on the market for 1 week! They were attentive, informative and reassuring throughout the entire sales process. We are so thankful for their hard work and dedication and we highly recommend them! - Seller, KF
“I would recommend Phil to anyone considering buying or selling a home.”
Very happy with Phil and think he did an excellent job selling our home. He was very knowledgable about the area and marker and was extremely well prepared when he presented to us. I would recommend Phil to anyone considering buying or selling a home. -Sellers SW & LW
“He is by far the most helpful, most responsive, most professional agent we’ve had the pleasure of working with, and his negotiation skills are beyond measure.”
Philip Vita and those that work with him (special kudos to Amanda Siciliano) are the best in the business. We had been looking for a house for several years and had worked with 3 other agents before him Phil. He is by far the most helpful, most responsive, most professional agent we've had the pleasure of working with, and his negotiation skills are beyond measure. -Buyers RD & SD
“Phil and Amanda knew exactly what it took to get the home that would work for us, especially in a competitive Boston-area market.”
My wife and I were first time home buyers and were also somewhat new to the area. However, Phil and Amanda knew exactly what it took to get the home that would work for us, especially in a competitive Boston-area market. They were friendly, always professional and very accessible. - Buyers BW & TW
“Working with Phil and Amanda gave us a leg up in this competitive market.”
"Working with Phil and Amanda gave us a leg up in this competitive market.

Their responsiveness and involvement in the entire process allowed us to purchase our first home with very little pressure or stress." -Buyer, MB
“We are very happy to be in our new home for the next chapter of our lives, and we owe you two for that.”
"We cannot thank you two enough for the help, guidance and support you provided us throughout the purchase of our first home. As we started getting into the thick of things, we had no idea what to expect. But, your savvy knowledge of the area, market, and process provided us the insight to make out as well as we could have ever imagined! The fact that you were able to negotiate an inside track to the seller while the house was off market, was invaluable in itself. On top of that, you guys have been incredibly personable, which made the entire process exponentially less stressful for us. We are very happy to be in our new home for the next chapter of our lives, and we owe you two for that. When it comes time for us to upgrade and look for a new home, we know exactly who to call to help us get it done!" -Buyers, JM&CB
“We are now very happy in our new home thanks to Phil and Amanda.”
"Phil and Amanda helped us sell our home and buy a new home and they were so helpful every step of the way. They went above and beyond to ensure that the sale of our house was not only successful, but as easy of a process as it could be for us. They were very knowledgeable, very professional and did an amazing job marketing our home and negotiating between lawyers, buyers and sellers. We were very pleased by how quickly our old house sold and we are now very happy in our new home thanks to Phil and Amanda. I highly recommend them to anyone looking for a competent team with a customer service focus. They were a pleasure to work with." -Seller/Buyer, KC
“He works very hard for his clients and also brings many people together because great things happen when you assemble a great teams.”
"Philip and his team at Vita Realty Group bring passion and local knowledge to selling Real Estate in the Boston North Area especially Winchester. The service is excellent and responsive to a quick moving market.

“Knowing we had someone with Phil’s experience looking out for our best interests was totally invaluable – and we’re about to close on a property we love!”
"As first time home-buyers, we knew we had a lot to learn throughout the process. Working with Phil as a buyer's agent was great, as we were able to access his expertise every step along the way. For each property we looked at, Phil gave us his thorough and candid take on the current market conditions in the area, as well as the quality and value of the property. Knowing we had someone with Phil's experience looking out for our best interests was totally invaluable - and we're about to close on a property we love!" -Buyer, EC
“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
“As someone who is passionate about what he does and also a skilled negotiator, Phil is the ideal agent to have in your corner in today’s competitive real estate market.”
"We had an excellent experience working with Phil and Amanda while buying our first home. They are both extremely professional and responsive. Phil was quite knowledgeable on walk throughs and always able to tell us a lot about the property that we wouldn't have seen otherwise. As someone who is passionate about what he does and also a skilled negotiator, Phil is the ideal agent to have in your corner in today's competitive real estate market. Most importantly, we always felt like it was their honest attempt to represent our best interests and never felt like we were being pushed into making a decision to pursue a property." -Buyer, KB
“They returned every phone call and replied to every email within a matter of minutes with the answers and detail I required. Additionally, they were patient when I was unclear and put me at ease when I was unsure….and always with a smile and a laugh.”
"I met Phil and his assistant, Amanda at a seminar hosted by my company's credit union. Phil was selected by the credit union to give a presentation on home-buying 101. I was immediately impressed with their honesty and professionalism. Several months later I was ready to put my family home on the market. As this was an estate sale, and I had no previous experience selling a home, I was completely dependent on the knowledge of a highly-skilled agent to guide me through the process. Phil and Amanda did just that. From the first phone call through the closing, Phil and Amanda guided me through the process - from effective pricing, to sales strategy, to photography and property prep, and negotiating offers - to the little details like fire department certification and making sure I was reimbursed for oil in the tank. They returned every phone call and replied to every email within a matter of minutes with the answers and detail I required. Additionally, they were patient when I was unclear and put me at ease when I was unsure....and always with a smile and a laugh. I am 100% certain that their sales strategy was spot on, and that I received that best deal possible for the property. I would highly suggest that you work with Phil when selling a property." -Seller,DS
“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

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
