Born in Roanoke, Virginia, Phillip moved with his family to the Raleigh area at the age of four. As a young adult, he developed a passion and vision for designing homes that led him to build his first home for himself and his young family. Philip has been building homes ever since, perfecting his approach to the design and construction processes and earning awards for the custom homes he has been building in the Triangle area since 1985.
Philip and his wife Mitzi are the proud parents of three children. Their daughter Brittany is working as a registered nurse. Their youngest, Anna, is currently teaching in Spain. She and her father experienced graduation at the same time; Philip with an MBA from NC State, Jenkins Graduate School, and Anna with a finance degree from NC State, Poole College of Management. This was a repeat of his graduation in 2013, when he crossed the stage to receive his bachelor’s degree diploma on the same day as his son, Jonathan. Jonathan is owner/manager of Hurst Landscapes, Inc.
