John Murphy - Broker Associate / REALTOR®
I've been a licensed REALTOR® since 2003 and a broker since 2007. I serve clients in the Greenville, SC area. I'm happily married to my college sweetheart, @janetmurphydesign on Instagram. We've been married 32 years, have 6 children from the ages of 14 to 29. Our two oldest children are married each with two children so we are now grandparents as well. Prior to real estate we had moved to the San Francisco Bay Area just after college. We lived out there for 9 years before moving back to family in MN in 2003. We are big believers that life should be an experience and we are the designers of our own lives. Prior to living in Greenville, SC, I had been the Designated Managing Broker for MN & ND supervising about 375 agents and thousands of transactions. We've had our eyes on Greenville for about 10 years. We searched the country for what we thought might be the best place for us to live and we continued to come back to Greenville. The location is fabulous just an hour from the mountains, 3.5 hours to the beach and situated in between Charlotte and Atlanta - both just a short drive away. In Greenville, I no longer have broker responsibilities so I can focus on the needs of my clients. There are lots of ways to follow me on social media whether it's my @GVLHomesandLand handle or Greenville Real Estate News - Instagram @Greenville.RealEstate.News, Twitter @Greenville_Real, www.facebook.com/greenvillerealestatenews , or my blog at www.GreenvilleRealEstateNews.com. I have 17 years of experience in representing buyers, sellers, investors, builders and developers. I've been involved in thousands of transactions. I'm an expert in contracts, negotiation and risk management for my clients but at the end of the day, I work very hard to help my clients get what they are looking for with their real estate transactions. I have a lot of experience in also helping relocation clients. I've represented many clients who were executives at some of the biggest companies in the country. I have also personally done two corporate relocations as a sales executive in corporate life prior to real estate. My wife, Janet Murphy, is an interior decorator, home stylist and stager. She works with me to consult and advise our sellers with necessary items to help our sellers maximize their home value and accelerate the sales time. She also has an incredible knack for helping clients choose colors and materials for remodeling and furniture. She's an important part of my team. I've lived in Minnesota, Wisconsin, North Dakota, Illinois, North Carolina, California and South Carolina. In so many ways, Greenville is the perfect place to live. It has Southern traditions and people who have lived here forever along many people from all over the country and all over the world given it's a major hub particularly for manufacturing. I have a broad set of life experiences that I believe is helpful is working with clients. Things I enjoy - traveling with my family, fishing or playing basketball with my boys, connecting with our adult children, seeing our grandchildren. I appreciate outstanding restaurants and the beautiful outdoors...so Greenville is a great place. I hope we can take some time to chat and get to know one another a bit. I'd be happy to help answer any questions you might have about real estate in the area.
