Phillip Shearing


Phillip is a legend of Launceston property and one of Tasmania’s best-known, most awarded and most respected real estate agents. Before joining the Josh Hart Team he was founder and principal of a Launceston agency that he grew into one of Australia’s top five per cent of real estate agencies by sales volume, employing some 35 staff.

Phillip has over 37 years’ experience in the property business and has sold more than 5,000 homes over his career – more than any other real estate agent operating in the Launceston or Tasmanian real estate markets. Over that time he has successfully sold through different markets most other agents have never experienced, including 17% interest rates and multiple economic recessions.

Property is Phillip’s passion and he still proudly keeps his payslip from the original sale he made back in 1982. He sees the uniqueness in every property and every seller and buyer and loves the chance to help people make the most of every chapter in their life.

Phillip is also frequently called on to advise on the most efficient and profitable strategies for developing, marketing and selling entire subdivisions. This involves the ability to identify trends ahead of time, as well as big picture vision and meticulous planning.

He briefly attempted to retire but, when an opportunity came up to work with The Josh Hart Team, the lure of selling property again was too hard for Phillip to resist. He now happily uses his skills and knowledge to help buyers achieve the best possible result.
