I am Zoe, and my greatest passion is putting my skills and experience to work helping others find/build/create their homes!
I make it my business to know how the Real Estate industry moves.
If it needs to get done, I find a way.
If there's a question I can't answer, I find who can.
At my core, I'm a nester. I’m a home-maker (read: home-body with Martha Stewart tendencies), a baker, an organizer, a planner, a people-connector, a community advocate, an amateur florist and a huge animal lover!
My professional history includes experience in architectural planning and 3D rendering, community development, historic preservation, residential construction administration and scheduling, event design, and real estate marketing.
I came to Philly to study Interior Design at Moore College of Art and Design in the summer of 2006 and I fell in love with the city hard. It’s an ongoing love affair. The architecture, the history, the energy, the sports, the arts, the food, and the ever changing skyline still get my blood pumping! By far my favorite thing about Philly is seeing brotherly love in action; people chatting on their front stoops, strangers stopping to help someone in need, neighbors looking out for neighbors—despite our tough exterior the people are what make this city truly excellent.
When I’m not in the office you can usually find me enjoying the outdoors in one of our awesome parks, catching some live music with friends, at home decorating for the latest holiday or wandering around Reading Terminal hunting for something delicious. Outside of the South Philly row home I share with my husband (and our dog, cat, and tortoise!) the streets of Philadelphia are my home and I never get tired of exploring our beautiful city!
Check out my resume!
My husband and I worked with Jeanne through many real estate transactions, both buying and selling properties. Not all of them were easy, but through them, all Jeanne was extremely professional and always managed to close the deals with a minimum of fuss.
I couldn't have asked for a more relaxing and seamless first-time seller's experience than the one I received through the magnificent Zoe, Jeanne Whipple, and the rest of the Philly Home Girls. I trust and love this team, and would recommend them highly again and again.
Philly Home Girls are the very best realtors we've worked with ANYWHERE, and we don't hesitate to recommend them to everyone we meet, whether they are looking for a realtor or not. We worked with Sheena and we could not be more thrilled that we did.
Many many many thanks to Jeanne Whipple, Sheena Marziano, Zoe Fox and the Philly Home Girls for taking the stress filled and confusing experience of home buying and making it an experience of clarity, sensibility, minimal stress, and frankly FUN in the company of these knowledgeable and professional women.
Kristin McFeely guided my husband and I through the process of purchasing our first home. We had no idea what we were doing going into it, but Kristin, Zoe and their team at Philly Home Girls made everything SO easy and enjoyable.
So - it's funny to write a review about a realtor when you've never met them, but with Jeanne Whipple, Zoe, Ivy and team I felt as if I was sitting right alongside them as they did their work, even though I was 100 (and sometime 4,000) miles away.
I will admit that I was probably one of those open house wanderers that real estate agents probably dread encountering on a Sunday afternoon. You know, the person who is kind of looking for a house, sort of thinking about buying, but not really all that sure about it...yet.
Kristin and her team (The Philly Home Girls) are the best!
As a relatively young lady buying my first home, I had some trepidation about the process. Kristin came highly recommended by a trustworthy friend and I couldn't have asked for a better agent. She is a full service provider who is passionate, enthusiastic, and dedicated to her profession.
RESPONSIVE. Because of my odd schedule, I frequently emailed Kristin outside of business hours and, to my pleasant surprise, received timely and consistent feedback. This was especially encouraging because the property's listing agent was the least responsive "professional" I had ever encountered. If not for Kristin's diligence, I'm certain we would not have closed on my incredible new home.
SAVVY. I'm brand spanking new to Philly from Brooklyn so my knowledge of the neighborhoods was fairly limited. A veteran of the city, Kristin's market savvy was greatly appreciated. She offered detailed accounts of each neighborhood, paying special attention to the characteristics that were most important to me (sense of community, social scene, safety, etc). She helped me find a newly renovated home in a hot-yet-developing neighborhood, which I'm certain will yield future rewards.
CONNECTED. The Philly Home Girls is a one-stop shop. Like any ethical agent, Kristin encouraged me to perform my own due diligence with regard to mortgage lenders, HOI providers, inspectors, etc. At the same time, the breadth and depth of her experience is reflected in her professional network and recommendations. I can honestly say there were no surprises throughout the process, which is priceless.
CREATIVE. From the moment I saw this property, I knew it was the home for me. Unfortunately, and to our surprise, the property's listing agent hadn't published that it was occupied by a new tenant with nearly a year left on the lease. Knowing my heart was set on the property, Kristin flexed her creative muscle which culminated in an arrangement that left smiles on the faces of all parties - the seller, the tenant, and me.
SUPPORTED. Kristin is able to operate at the pinnacle of excellence with the support of her Project Manager (and all around fabulous person), Zoe Draper. Zoe's diligence contributed to a hiccup-free process and her effervescent personality always left me feeling warm and fuzzy.
I couldn't have asked for more and I thank my lucky stars for the expertise and panache of The Philly Home Girls. - View on Zillow
