Following a career in Finance in the Boston area, Phyllis, a life long sailor and boater, settled in Newport several years ago to be closer to friends and family. She has over 30 years experience in restoring and rehabbing antique houses- which led her to finally get her Realtor's license in 2017. Although newly licensed, Phyllis Detwiler is definitely NOT new to real estate. She is well versed in the exciting challenges of buying and selling homes and understands client wants and needs on each side of the process. With a back ground in working with clients in finance, as well as her own experiences in buying and selling homes, she understands customer service well and will do everything possible to make the buying and selling process as smooth as possible.
When she's not helping clients find the right home, Phyllis spends as much time as possible on the water in warm weather and is a textile artist (hand weaver) when the weather forces her inside.
She graduated from Boston University with a degree in Geography and a minor in Geology so she knows and loves New England, particularly coastal New England, deeply.
