Phil Popielski


I am a Realtor with Brook-Owen Real Estate and was licensed in 2017. I have gained experience quickly, working with Buyers and Sellers on numerous transactions, gaining valuable knowledge and skills that help me to continue building onto an already sturdy foundation.

In addition to real estate, I have been in education for thirty plus years and have been coaching for over thirty-four years. These two positions have prepared me for my continued adventure as a real estate agent.

I’m originally from Johnsonburg, PA and moved to Maryland after graduating from Clarion University in 1988.  I graduated from Bowie State University in 1994 with a Masters in Administration and Supervision and worked and lived the next thirteen years in Anne Arundel County.  Over the past 19 years, I have been part of the McDaniel’s Women’s basketball program, with Becky Martin. In that time, we had 7 NCAA tournament appearances and 4 conference championships.  I’m also on the board of directors for the Westminster Travel Basketball Association, helping get young players opportunities to play basketball in and around Carroll County.

In 2005, my family and I moved to Westminster and have been residents here since. I have been married to my wife Stephanie for 28 years, and we have 4 children, Cassandra, Michael, Sydney, and Josh. I am an active member of the Westminster Elks, the Westminster Sons of the American Legion, and the Westminster Knights of Columbus. As an Elk, I have been the Chair of the Elk’s Hoop Shoot. Currently, I am an Assistant Principal in Baltimore County, and look forward to my future as a full time real estate agent, after my long tenure as a public educator.

I’m available to help you with all of your real estate needs, and welcome the opportunity to be your advocate and support.
