Phil Spencer's Biography

Phil Spencer is the founder and Chief Executive of Garrington. He has a natural ability to understand and interpret house hunters’ needs, and a deep passion for property.

His passion for property emerged when, after a stint working for an estate agent in Canterbury, he decided to head to University and sat a 4 year degree course in General Practice Surveying at London’s Southbank University. Having gained his Surveying degree, in 1996 Phil founded the company Garrington Home Finders (www.garrington.co.uk), and was one of the very first property professionals to specialise in looking after the interests of purchasers. The business model took off and has since been much emulated. As founder and Chief Executive Phil developed Garrington over the following 12 years into an organisation with 4 offices, a staff of 30 and an annual turnover of £3.5 million. Although he has not been involved with the business since 2008, Garrington continues to thrive and is run out of offices in Cambridge.

Whilst looking to develop a program idea that followed the thrills and spills of couples going out house hunting, Phil and Kirstie produced a TV series; Location, Location, Location – a channel 4 property programme that follows Allsop and Spencer as they try to find a perfect home for a different set of buyers each week. Shortly after, Relocation Relocation was born. There are 20 series of LLL, which makes it the longest running and most successful program of its type on UK TV. Phil is also the presenter on Phil Spencer’s Stately Homes and Kirstie and Phil’s Love it or List it

Whilst Kirstie and Phil have become something of a double act and love working together, they have both gone on to present numerous other programs. They spend six months of the year working on LLL and six months on individual projects for their own production business.

In 2010 Phil and Kirstie set up Raise the Roof Productions with their long-term production partners Sarah Walmsley and Jane Muirhead. Company headquarters is in Glasgow, Scotland
