Philip has more than 30 years of experience in evaluation services and property inspections, working directly with Mortgage Companies, Tax Credit Investment Companies, Bond Houses, State Housing Finance Agencies, Non Profit Housing Corporations and The Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). Because of his extensive knowledge and accomplished expertise in this field, he is often called upon by industry leaders for guidance and advice in this sector.

His vast expertise in evaluating multi-family housing and providing quality architectural services for the renovation of existing housing led him to the appointment of Missouri Housing Development Commission’s Committee for the Preservation of Housing.

This approach has set his firm apart from the rest and gained him a considerable reputation as an expert in this arena.
