Since 1976, Phil Schembra has embodied Hilton Head Island real estate, building upon his successes at each turn with an unquenchable thirst for knowledge and a natural savviness when it comes to reading the real estate market’s tea leaves.
Schembra can back the claim with sales figures as he has achieved the distinction as the #1 All-Time Listing and Selling Agent for individual sales on Hilton Head Island with sales over $1 billion.
What makes this all the more impressive is his specialization in one community – on an island packed with incredible properties to choose from, Schembra chose to specialize within Palmetto Dunes, Shelter Cove and Leamington.
“I know and love this community as a resident, living and working here for 44 years,” he said. “Focusing 100% on our property owners, I’ve seen the market in our community through the good times and the bad and it has given me in-depth knowledge and appreciation that I bring to bear with every client.”
Beyond the bounds of his community, his drive and knowledge have made him a leader on Hilton Head Island and throughout the sports and corporate world as CEO of Hilton Head Island Performance Group, his motivational-sales publishing company he started in 1979. He has previously worked closely with some of the biggest names in the sporting world to motivate, inspire and help them achieve their goals.
On the Island, he was Marketing Manager for the campaign of Benjamin M. Racusin, (his wife, Carol’s cousin), Hilton Head Islands’ first Mayor during the early days of incorporation of our Town. His deep commitment to our community is reflected in his involvement in several local Boards, organizations and through his commitment on the Beach Nourishment Committee for the HHI Board of Realtors.
