Phillip Gutierres is celebrating 20 years of practicing real estate and representing hundreds of clients buying and selling in the Austin area! His biggest joy comes from serving Veterans and their families with their real estate needs and beyond. As a certified Veteran Services Officer (VSO), Phillip is qualified to counsel veterans regarding their VA benefits. Most veterans are unaware that they are eligible for VA compensation and benefits that may also include healthcare. He can answer your questions and give organization to this often-complicated issue! Phillip also loves working with first-time homebuyers- as our industry has many perks for this clientele and special lending programs can really make home buying a reality! This includes property exemptions, VA lending discounts, and if you are service connected disabled above 30% you qualify for an additional half point off the VA lending rate from the Texas Veterans Land Board. Phillip has proudly achieved the status of RE/MAX’s 100% Club Member and Executive Club Member. His civic duties include Austin Veterans Affairs Commissioner 2013-2019; Project Director at Heroes Lodge and is a Veteran himself of the US Navy.
