Phillip Alexius co-owns A&P Real Estate Group with his father David. Together they invest part time in the South Metro, outside the perimeter. Most of their activities focus around the communities that are served by I-85.
Phillip first got introduced to real estate by attending a small education class in buying houses with his father in order to help another family member by their first house. Quickly Phillip was blown away by the limitless opportunities that are in the real estate market. It was from there that he took off trying to learn everything he could from other heavily credited investors.
In his day job, Phillip is an experienced Program Manager and Project Engineer who has worked on multi-million-dollar projects for major car companies. He has worked with multiple different contractors spanning over 10 different states and three countries. This experience gives Phillip the ability to approach Real Estate investing from a systematic perspective, keeping projects on time, on budget, and ensuring success for all involved.
