Meet Annita Phillips! Annita currently resides in Southwest Springfield and loves it! However, that has not always been the case. Annita’s parents, along with her two siblings immigrated to the United States 48 years ago from Liverpool England, and she was born soon after. Her parents Bill and Mary always dreamed of living, as they still put it- “in America, the greatest place on earth”. Although they were extremely afraid to leave their families at such a young age, they always wanted to live the American Dream, and knew if they were dedicated, honest and worked hard they could achieve that dream. The process took over 7 years, but Annita’s parents did just that- they built a successful small family business in construction in St. Louis, the company and family were built on the foundations that drew them to the United States 49 years ago. This was a result of hard work, faith, strong family values, and of course love. They not only built their business on these values, but raised their family on them as well.
Annita has continued with these core values in her own life. Not long after her marriage to her husband Paul, they moved along with their two children Spencer and Noah to Omaha Nebraska and resided there for 10 years. They did not however lose their love for Missouri, and returned to the Ozarks several times a year to enjoy the rivers, streams and of course Tablerock Lake. Although Omaha was a wonderful place to raise children, the family missed being close to family, and dreamed of having one of their favorite vacation destinations not only in their backyard, but in their community. In 2006, they made the dream a reality, and moved to Springfield, a decision they have never regretted. Since moving to the Ozarks- they have enjoyed all things outdoors – kayaking, paddle boarding, hiking- you name it, they do it. The boys flourished in the Ozarks, both active in sports while attending Kickapoo, Noah going to state for swimming, and after realizing his love of golf at Millwood Spencer was able to polish his life sport the Drury Golf Team.
Annita has incorporated the core values ingrained in her from a young child, undying drive and zest for life not only into her personal and family life, but her professional life as well. Prior to discovering her love of not only real estate but the satisfaction of helping individuals and families make their own American Dreams come true, Annita was with the same company for 17 years, and as a manager, she was regarded and performed as a “ top three performing managers” in the entire company. She had, and continues to maintain this level of professionalism because of her ability to build strong relationships by showing dignity and respect to all, maintaining her integrity, by exemplifying the highest degree of ethical behavior. Annita’s passion, pride and commitment to success prove to her to be extremely results orientated. She has built trust with everyone in her professional life through her honest, sincere and confident disposition. Through a combination of creativity, common sense and vision, she continues to be an innovative force in the field.
