Phil is excited and eager to help clients maximize their enjoyment of the beautiful lifestyle in Southwest Florida. A native of Florida and a true son of a son of a sailor, Phil's love of the water and boating was developed from an early age. Whether learning to sail with his grandfather, skippering his own craft across the gulfstream, or kayaking the back bays of the Caloosahatchee, Phil is most comfortable being on the water, making him a natural fit within Stokes Marine. Since moving to Fort Myers in 2006, Phil has established strong connections in the larger community, actively participating in the Rotary Club of Fort Myers; serving on the boards of the Sky Family YMCA and the Lakes Park Enrichment Foundation; participating in Boy Scout Pack 93; and serving as head Watch DOG at Allen Park Elementary School. Phil lives in Fort Myers with his wife, Paige, and their two boys, Zane and Baird.
