If you are looking for an agent, look no further!!! Duane Murphy far surpasses them all! He is knowledgeable, helpful, perseverant,encouraging, understanding, and a great communicator just to name a few. I decided to pursue a change of careers and go back to college which meant I needed to sell my house. Unfortunately my house was now worth less than what I still owed on the house so the short sale route was the best option for me. This could seem like a very daunting task but Duane made it seem painless. He organized and helped me fill out the paper work and was my advocate when working with the mortgage company. He marketed my house in a way that brought people in to look at it and made it stand out with his special tips he provided, to give my house that unique touch. He was also in constant communication which was wonderful! The perfect buyer came along and made an offer to purchase my house. The longest part of the journey was waiting for approval from the mortgage company but Duane kept my spirits high during this time and my house was sold quickly. <br/><br/>If you are in a difficult position and need to sell your home without foreclosing talk to Duane. He never judged me for my current situation. He helped me see the bright side of things and how I will be in another beautiful home one day, once I graduate and enter my new career of medicine. It was rough to leave a career of eleven years and then sell a home I was completely in love with. However, Duane gave me support through this time in my life and gave me hope for the future. <br/><br/>I would strongly recommend Duane to anyone who is looking to buy or sell a house. You won't be disappointed with all he can do for you.

Working with Duane was a great experience. He knew what I wanted and showed me only homes that fit what I was looking for. He is a great guy and would recommend him to anyone. I will definately be using him again on my next home!

Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $150K in Wrightstown, WI.

My husband and I would recommend Duane Murphy to anyone who is looking to buy or sell a home. Every time I would see an ad that I felt might fit our needs or wants I would email or call Duane and he would check into the property and get back to us either by phone or email and sometimes both. He knew my husband had special needs and Duane realized the limitations that he had and what we were looking for. He kept us up to date with homes to check on. He did not waste my time showing me something that would not work for us. He found us our house and we love it. When I went for the first showing Duane already measured places that might present a problem. Duane had ideas to make it easier and workable for him. I loved it and felt my husband would too, so I called my son and he brought his dad there. They both loved it. Duane guided us through the whole process - this made our buying experience so much less stressful. It was like we were dealing with a long time friend. Duane wrote up our offer that day and called us when they counter offered. He immediately came over and wrote up the counter offer. From the time that Duane showed us the property to us moving in was 1 month, how awesome is that.

Sold a Single Family home in 2011 for approximately $75K in Kaukauna, WI.

I was having a real hard time selling my house. I was with an agent for 6 months without any results. I know I needed a change so I started looking for a new agent. I was very lucky to find Duane Murphy. The biggest reason why my home was not selling was due to the price. The value of my home was now worth less then what I owed on my mortgage. The best option for me was a short sale. Duane helped me fill out the paper work and he was my advocate when working with the mortgage company. He marketed my house in a way that brought people in to look at it. I could not believe how many showings were being booked. Finally the perfect buyer came along and made an offer to purchase on my house. The house is now SOLD. With all of the satistics out there saying that short sales have a low success rate, that is not case when working Duane Murphy.

If you are in a rough postion and need to sell your home without foreclosing talk to Duane. He never once judge me for my current situation. He gave me support through a really rough time in my life and gave me hope for the future. I would recommend him to anyone who is looking to buy or sell a house.

Bought a home in 2011.

What can I say about Duane Murphy? He was honest,knowledgeable,Friendly,the down to earth,Realtor I was hoping for. I was a first time homebuyer,hoping for a great experience.Duane gave me the great experience I was hoping for. He made the process comforatable. After finding the house I wanted,I must have asked 1000 questions. Duane answered all of them. He also gave me advice,when I asked for it. During the bidding process,he was always a step ahead of the game.He seemed to always be prepared for whatever scenario,might happen. My home buying experience with Duane Murphy was a really good one. I would highly recommend him to anyone. When I am ready to buy or sell again.Duane Murphy will definately be getting a call from me.

Sold a Single Family home in 2011 for approximately $100K in Appleton, WI.

The best compliment I can give Duane is he is good at what he does. From our very first meeting until the time we closed on the sale of the house, he was excellent at keeping up with communication frequently and on time.

He's very familiar with the whole process and knows exactly what will and won't sell a home. So if you're serious about selling your house, Duane is your man!

I've already recommended him to a friend that is using him.

He went above & beyond to make the deal come together & made it go smoothly. Any questions or concerns we had, he addressed.

Bought a Single Family home in 2010 for approximately $125K in Little Chute, WI.

At no point did I feel like my agent did not know what he was doing. He made sure to give me many options to look at and did not settle on just "a few." He was able to answer any questions I had, he took my concerns to heart and was able to look find me a home that ended up being perfect. The location is supreme and I'm very happy with the results.

Sold a Single Family home in 2010 for approximately $125K in Menasha, WI.

We listed our house with Duane and we got an accepted offer in 39 days! Our neighbor's house was for sale for over a year (first by themselves then with 2 different realtors). Duane gave us ideas on what to do to help our house sell fast. We took his ideas and it worked! We highly recommend Duane to anyone looking to sell their house.
