Phillip Simon is a top producing Realtor® and Lead Buyer Specialist for The 12:45 Team. His clients appreciate his extensive experience in sales, marketing & negotiating and he treats every client as if they were his only client. Phillip’s buyers like working with him because as a long time resident of Northern Virginia, he knows it like the back of his hand – whether that’s schools or businesses, commuting routes or neighborhoods. In addition, Phillip has extensive skills in the technology arena and his buyers gain a competitive advantage (and extra convenience) as a result. His true passion is helping others and he looks forward to helping you find your dream home!

Ron Johnson is our first contact for many of our clients. He conducts searches of homes across the area to find the ones that best fit a client's criteria. Ron is a great benefit to our clients because he has lived in Northern Virginia for 31 years so he is very familiar with the communities.  Ron comes to us from a background in non-profit organizations. He spent 17 years with Campus Crusade for Christ and 16 years as an associate pastor at McLean Bible Church.  Ron is originally from northwestern Illinois and holds a Bachelor of Science degree from the University of Illinois. Ron is married and has three sons and one granddaughter.

Christy Simon is our Client Care Coordinator and handles the steps required from contract to closing. Once you go under contract, Christy will be walking you through the next steps and making sure you close.  She is all about customer service and details, details!

Farah Raschid began her career in the real estate industry as a Marketing Manager for a title company and is now a Buyer's Agent focused on delivering exceptional customer service to a wide range of clients from first time home buyers to experienced real estate investors.

What does 12:45 Team stand for?

12:45 Team is a unique name for our real estate team. The name is derived from the scripture verse Romans 12:4-5.  This scripture reads....

"For just as each of us has one body with many parts, and these parts do not have all the same function.  As in Christ, we, though many, form one body, and each part belongs to the other."

To us this scripture illustrates teamwork and everyone's role on the team. Our team's focus is to meet and exceed your expectations with you as the most valuable player.
