Team Leader

Eli is a real estate expert who has worked in the industry for the past nine years and in that time he has cultivated a unique niche market, servicing buyers, sellers and developers. He is an avid communicator who has an innate ability to understand his client's needs. That coupled with his extensive knowledge of the industry and his network of contacts have attributed to his success, which recently landed him on the 2018 National REthink Council, a group of 15 top-producing, motivated young agents from Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices brokerages around the country. Eli recently was recognized as Top 2% in the entire Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Network.

Eli has built his career focusing on enhancing the real estate experience for those he represents in the process. He doesn't see himself so much as a real estate agent, rather he considers himself a real estate consultant. He offers his clients a full range of services that compliment and enrich the overall experience. He is a perfectionist who goes to all lengths to get the job done properly. He works closely with highly accomplished photographers, interior designers, stagers, architects, and graphic designers. He has a deep network of the city's top real estate attorneys, mortgage brokers and bankers. Eli prides himself on his network that he often refers to as his support team.

Born in Albania, Eli moved to Philadelphia when he was thirteen years old and currently owns a home in the Philadelphia area in which he resides with his wife Julia and son Adam. Eli is passionate about the City and all it is has to offer. He enjoys running, snowboarding, reading, traveling and he loves all things related to real estate.

Brian Barker

For as long as Brian Barker can remember, he has been a real estate enthusiast. He clearly recalls scanning the classifieds as a young man in search of the perfect opportunity. Years later, research, persistence and patience paid off. Brian and a good friend invested in their first property in Brewerytown.

There was no denying it – the real estate bug bit Brian big time. After settlement, Brian left the sidelines and became a true investor in the Philadelphia real estate market. Gradually, as he gained experience and honed his business acumen, Brian took the next step in his burgeoning career and became a real estate agent.

Brian’s expertise, cultivated through the years, is now utilized to help his clients in what is often the biggest purchase of their lives – their own home. Along with a sound understanding of the real estate market and the transaction process - from finding a property through to settlement - Brian provides his clients a sound night’s sleep as he handles the details.

To this day, Brian brings the same youthful energy, eye for potential and opportunity to assist his clients as they explore the City of Philadelphia to find their place to call home.

Brian resides with his family in the Rittenhouse area to be close to the market he knows and loves.

Sharon Schultz

Team Coordinator

Sharon has always loved the idea of working in real estate, but not the idea of being a salesperson. As team coordinator, she enjoys the unique challenge each transaction offers, and the opportunity to have a high level of involvement with clients and transactions, while working in the background.

Sharon recently moved back to the area with her husband and daughter, after several years of living in Rural Western New York. She enjoys exploring the city (on foot whenever possible) and coffee in almost every form.
