J. Philip Real Estate Welcomes Tana McGuire

One of the fun things about writing a welcome piece for people like Tana McGuire is that you can’t keep up; YES, she’s new to the firm, but I could just as easily congratulate her on getting her first listing, engaging her first builder, and getting hired by her first buyer, because all of those things happened before the ink was dry on her license here.

Where to start? In a prior life, Tana was a fabulous restauranteur, with amazing ventures down the street here in Briarcliff at the Tuscan Grille which she ran for years, and at the Branding Iron in Peekskill, where our firm had our very first holiday soirée. Back then, if you had an event that needed catering or hospitality you called her first. There was no second place. 

A respected business person in Westchester for ages with a reputation even better than her delicious food, Tana brings with her a gravitas few possess. When she first chatted with me about joining our firm (and with no small amount of involvement from the inimitable Jenn Maher) I was almost giddy. Yes, she’s that awesome

Tana’s Westchester roots run deep. A graduate of Hendrick Hudson High school and native of Buchanan, Tana has lived in the area just about all of her life and raised her daughter here. Currently, a resident of Yorktown with her husband Steve, her knowledge of Westchester and Putnam is impressive. She’s a true entrepreneur, a straight shooter, and her integrity and reputation are impeccable. As a professional, she has things a good broker can’t teach: instinct, a passion for great service, street smarts, and a can-do attitude that gives you chills. 

Her clients will be fortunate to benefit from her professional representation and advocacy. I couldn’t be more pleased to welcome anyone to the firm more, and we’ve brought in some marvelous people.
