Phil Rodocker, GRI
Working for a Better Northwest
As a John L. Scott broker, my mission is transactional excellence and client satisfaction. That means I work tirelessly to make your home buying or selling process as efficient, stress-free and lucrative for you as possible.
Phillip Rodocker’s real estate career began in 1988, when he started selling log homes. Just two years later, he joined John L. Scott after a friend introduced him to the company. Now nearly 30 years later, Phillip helps clients buy and sell residential properties in many areas, including Maple Valley, Renton, Enumclaw, Issaquah, Black Diamond and Newcastle.
Buying or selling a home can be intimidating, and Phillip’s initial approach when working with clients is assuring them of the knowledge he’s gained through his experience over the years. He prioritizes educating clients, ensuring they understand the process of buying or selling a home. To Phillip, servicing a client means helping them feel comfortable, happy and confident with their choice of broker. He wants to serve as a full-time advocate for clients, helping them through what can be one of the most successful transactions of their life.
As marketing is ever-changing in the business world, Phillip always keeps his finger on the pulse of the latest technologies in the industry. While no listing is the same, he often uses professional photos with staging, open houses and internet advertising. His decades of experience in real estate and in the local market, coupled with an eye for “what’s next,” set him apart from the competition.
As the years have progressed, Phillip’s real estate interests have grown and evolved, as he strives for constant learning and improvement. In 1996, his passion for helping first-time home buyers led to him developing courses and seminars on the topic. Later, his focus shifted to aiding clients looking to sell their home, which he currently puts most of his energy into due to his success and passion for this sector. Recently, Phillip opened his business up to working with investors looking to flip properties to learn more about this area of the industry.
Having lived in the Maple Valley area for his whole life, Phillip and his wife are dedicated to help those in need within the community. A local organization he and his wife are involved with is Vine Maple Place, which is dedicated to providing hope, help and housing to parents and children facing homelessness. He also spends much of his spare time volunteering at a local church, sitting on the board of directors and assisting at service every Sunday. Phillip donates to charities supporting people living in third-world poverty and also donates to Seattle Children’s Hospital. The John L. Scott concept of Living Life as a Contribution™ speaks to Phillip, as he strongly believes in the importance of putting effort toward giving back, both in and out of daily work life.
Renton sits on the southeast shore of Lake Washington and at the junction of three major hiways: I5, I405 and state route 167. That means we have easy access to Seattle, Bellevue, SeaTac airport, and the rest of the Puget Sound area, as well as the Lake and the Cascades including Mt Rainier. Renton was incorporated in the early 1900s, but we really grew when Boeing started building planes here during World War 2. In the decades since, many large corporations have set up homes here, including Paccar, which makes Kenworth and Peterbilt commercial vehicles. IKEA opened their first Pacific Northwest location here in the mid 90s. The downtown core has been revitalized and is now home to the Piazza. During the summer, the Piazza hosts a farmers market, but there are events here throughout the year. Renton is also home to the facility where the Seattle Seahawk train. Every summer, we have Renton River days, which was named for the Cedar river that flows right through town on its way to Lake Washington. The multiple day event features a parade, arts and crafts, food, entertainment and a kid’s zone with inflatables and other activities. Renton has homes of all styles. Luxury homes on the water or in the Highlands, condos and townhouses overlooking Lake Washington, and new homes in friendly neighborhoods. All with access to tons of hiking and biking trails, a vibrant downtown and some of the nicest people in the world. If you’d like to learn more about Renton, let us know. We’d love to show you around and help you find your perfect home.
"This is the second transaction we have done with Phil Rodocker. Obviously we were happy with the service we got from him and his team the first time so it was an easy decision to use him the second time. Phil assisted with pricing our very beautiful house correctly and gave us tips for ways to make it show better for new buyers. He was with us every step of the way. Not much more I can say. Professional, well regarded by the local real estate community, a great communicator and overall a fine person with a great team."
"After letting our first agent go we were very cautious about hiring our second agent. We interviewed multiple agents before deciding on Phil as our next listing agent. Ultimately the decision was made easy due to the fact that Phil was totally transparent with us about what it would take to sell our house. He was truly genuine in all the info he gave us. He also spent multiple hours with us the first night answering all our questions. I can honestly and wholeheartedly say that Phil made the selling process extremely easy. And of course he sold our home incredibly quickly which is a testament to his work ethic and the team he has behind him!"
"We have known Phil for a few years now. He has been doing business with my in-laws and recently has helped us sell our condo and buy our first single family home. Phil is very knowledgeable and cares about you and your family. He is a pleasure to work with and will get you the best deal he can. His team is AMAZING! They are quick to help and always prompt to respond! They have made our buying and selling experience easy. Will definitely use them in any of our future real estate endeavors."
