About Al Philip-Neri
Al Philip-Neri: Real Estate Broker, Real Estate Investor, Public Speaker, Author, Trainer, & Coach
AL PHILIP-NERI is a London-born performance coach, public speaker, entrepreneur and author. In his youth, Al learned the life-changing potential of entrepreneurship through real estate by watching his parents grow from hard-working business owners striving for success to prosperous rental property owners achieving success. This life-changing experience ultimately led Al to develop his own career in real estate as an investor and licensed real estate broker, as well as a nationally and internationally recognized public speaker on real estate investing and sharing the principles that make up ‘A Balanced Life.’
AUTHOR & COACH
Drawing on his background as a multi-faceted business owner, sales expert and coach, Al released his first book in October of 2012 – The Formula for a Balanced Life: 9 Strategies for Success – wherein he candidly explains the secrets to take control of one’s life and conquer the feelings of overwhelm that tend to dominate our lives. A consummate professional, Al teaches his Formula for a Balanced Life System on stage and within workshop settings. Al has led coaching and workshops for Jefferson County School District in Colorado, Fort Morgan County School District in Colorado, and the State of Colorado, to name a few. Al’s unique perspectives allow him to connect during coaching sessions with C-level executives, high level athletes, and those who aspire to create the best possible lives for themselves.
Al honed his public speaking skills by training others how to generate the same level of personal success on his prolific speaking circuit for Professional Marketing International and Zurixx Financial, which includes all the major “fix-and-flip” shows of HGTV and A&E fame, such as The Flipping Formula, Flipping Vegas and Rehab Addict, to name a few. Additionally, Al branded his real estate experience of being a Hybrid Agent by founding Team Hybrid which is a top producing real estate team that represents clients in Residential – Luxury – Commercial and Investment Real Estate. Al now speaks in boardrooms, team rooms, and on stage on topics such as creating a balanced life, investments, performance, winning, and motivation. He is frequently tapped to share his philosophies as a guest on podcasts.
His passion for helping others is also evident in his philanthropic endeavors like his work with orphans in Sri Lanka after the destruction of the devastating tsunami, and his creation of a Holiday charity event called “From Our Family to Your Family” in which a supporting family is paired up with a sponsored family to provide food, toiletries, and Christmas presents for their children. He takes great joy in being a featured motivational speaker and a full time volunteer coach at a local high school for their elite sports teams, offering “Life’s Lessons” to great effect on the kids. Additionally, he is still an active member of his college fraternity – Sigma Lambda Beta at Colorado University in Boulder, a predominantly minority-based organization – wherein he helps to organize scholarship funds and community service activities for his younger brethren.
Currently Al is a PhD Candidate in Performance Psychology. He holds an M.A. in Organizational Management and Leadership along with a B.A. in Psychology. Mr. Philip-Neri has over 25 years of experience in Special Operations, Juvenile Corrections, Management and Sales, Organizational Development, and Entrepreneurial Success. As a public servant, his leadership roles included Senior Drill Instructor and the Director/Warden of a juvenile prison. His additional, extensive background in high-profile and high-risk occupations in hostage negotiations and counter-terrorism measures, as well as his role as an Associate Professor in Criminal Justice at a local Denver university, clearly demonstrate the wide range of Al’s professional prowess. Al brings his experience and diverse background when coaching clients to improve their performance.
REAL ESTATE BROKER & INVESTOR
Like many professionals, Al understood that the majority of effective investment strategies are not taught in any schools. Consequently, he embarked upon an intensive, self-directed path of study with some of the industry’s top gurus learning how to implement sound investment principles for consistent and successful returns. Over the years, Mr. Philip-Neri has completed thousands of successful residential, commercial and investment transactions in 20 markets nationwide – including Denver, Kansas City, Seattle, Detroit, Buffalo, Winter Haven (Florida) and Atlanta, to name a few. His residential investment experience includes wholesale, fix and flips, single-family dwellings, multi-family dwellings, mobile homes, and apartment homes.
ELITE FIGHTER & TRAINER
Al’s hard work, dedication and self-discipline is evident in his success as a former member of the United States AAU Karate Team, and in the numerous athletic awards he has received over the years, including his accomplishments as a fighter at an elite level. In his youth, he competed nationally and internationally as an athlete with the Junior Olympics and Goodwill Games. He was also the co-founder of Scientific Martial Arts and Fitness in Westminster, Colorado, where he shared his passion for excellence by coaching numerous amateur and professional fighters, as well helping the everyday person get in the shape of a fighter to achieve their personal health and fitness goals.
The undaunted spirit of perseverance that his parents passed on to him remains at the forefront of everything Al does. Taking on their torch, he is always working hard to better himself, his family, his clients, and his community. Al resides with his family in Colorado.
