When Philip graduated from Clemson University, he purchased an old cabin on Lake Glenville that he renovated and made his own. After years of spending more and more time in this special place, he decided to make Cashiers his second home.

In 2002, Philip earned his SC real estate license and formed his own company, Brown Dog Realty, LLC, a boutique real estate firm based in Charleston. Over the years, he has helped many friends and family find their own perfect vacation home, whether it be on the coast or in the mountains.
