Gardner Realtors Regional Sales Manager/Broker
Phillip Sutton was born and raised in St. Bernard Parish. He moved to South Mississippi and after Hurricane Katrina decimated his home. Phillip quickly adjusted to his new surroundings attending Hancock High School and began working at Rouses in Diamondhead.
After High School Phillip attended Delgado Community College and began working as a personal fitness trainer at Ochsner Fitness Center. While in school and working as a trainer he married his high school sweetheart and they began their life together.
In 2017 Phillip combined one of his enjoyments, boxing with his experience as a personal trainer and co-founded Champs Boxing and Personal Fitness. There he met and had the opportunity to meet a client with a rare condition. After learning and talking about her condition he created a program where she regained her ability to walk independently again. Over the course of three years they accomplished many of her personal goals including regaining her independence.
In 2018 Phillip and his wife Taylor had a little girl, Carmella. His priorities changed instantly and he found it difficult to balance the new venture in Champs and being a husband and father. While visiting Taylor’s family in South Mississippi in early 2020, Phillip’s mother-in-law, a successful Gardner Realtor, suggested he consider real estate. In March of 2020 Phillip signed on with Gardner Realtors in the flagship office of Slidell and Gardner’s only dully licensed office. Soon Phillip will obtain his Mississippi license and help buyers and sellers in Louisiana and Mississippi.
His first client in real estate was a special client, his client he helped to walk again.
In September 2020 Phillip completed a Ninja Installation, the client centric class that helps Realtors excel by offering a high level of services and advancing relationships.
