"To whom it may concern:

I have done business with Phil Chen for the past (10) years.

I have found him to be honest and very forthright in his dealings. In our business relationship, he is well-informed, knowledgeable and very easy to work with.

I particularly like that Phil is punctual and keeps me constantly informed. I would not hesitate to recommend him for any business situation.

Sincerely Yours,

Bernard Osher"

"Over the past two years, my wife Debra and I have worked extensively with Phil Chen of Sybarite Investments on various real estate matters and have found Phil to be extremely responsive, hard working, professional, and easy to work with. 

Phil’s dedication and tireless commitment makes him a great partner in real estate transactions.  

I highly recommend Phil to anyone looking to buy or sell a home.

Great team!

Working with Phil, Margie and Team was beyond a pleasure. They were on top of each step of buying a home. They made us feel at ease through the process and communicated everything. I would definitely use them again to buy or sell a home. Great team

"To whom it may concern,

I have known Phil for ten years during which time he has served as our commercial real estate investment advisor and also, originally, as a physical trainer for me and my wife, Christine. My recommendation is based on my career of over thirty years in banking, and I could unequivocally report that I have the greatest confidence in Phil. I know him to be a most prudent investor who keeps both his financial and personal commitments.

In all our business relationships we have found Phil to be an outstanding individual who takes a professional approach and great pride in all his work. He is thoughtful and careful and thoroughly reliable. He is a hard working person of sound business judgement, with fine entrepreneurial instincts. He is clearly both ambitious and highly ethical.

We have also come to know Phil's family. His wife, Maria, is a terrific person and great Mother and they have two wonderful children to whom Phil is very devoted.

In short, I highly recommend Phil and if you have any questions, please do not hestitate to contact me."
