With passion, creativity and a fresh take on the business of real estate, Phillip Caruso has been making his mark on the Orange County luxury market. A South Orange County native who grew up in a family that has been devoted to helping buyers and sellers fulfill their real estate dreams for three decades, Phillip has learned the nuances of the business firsthand through his parents, Michael and Cris Caruso, and older sister, who comprise the renowned Michael Caruso Real Estate Group. A University of Arizona alumnus, Phillip received a BS degree in Regional Development with a minor in Business. After graduating, he trained as an investment analyst with a major multifamily commercial real estate company. In this position, Phillip assembled property portfolios to aid buyers with future investments using rental income analysis, appreciation, unit mix and building age, and he worked with associate brokers building investment and marketing packages for listings. Phillip soon went on to earn his broker’s license at the age of 23, making him one of the youngest brokers in California. As part of the Michael Caruso Real Estate Group, Phillip not only assists clients throughout the process of a purchase or sale, he also helps handle the print and online marketing initiatives for the team. Supported by Surterre Properties®, Phillip has access to a variety of resources that have been designed to help him go above and beyond when assisting property buyers and sellers. From an award-winning, full-service in-house advertising studio, to the latest advances in industry technology, Surterre offers an unmatched level of support for Phillip and the entire Michael Caruso Real Estate Group. Having focused on sustainability during his Regional Development studies, Phillip shares all of Surterre’s core values of creating and maintaining an eco-friendly atmosphere. He hopes to help spread the message of environmental awareness throughout the local community. Phillip also really enjoys writing music, surfing, boating, and fishing, “anything with water,” he says. Most of all, he enjoys spending time with his friends, and his loved ones. Phillip explains, “I am grateful to be working with my family at Surterre Properties. They embrace a coastal lifestyle and a supportive company culture that I truly identify with.”
