Bought a Townhouse home in 2009 in Issaquah, WA.

Maria helped me find my first house. Maria asked me questions of what type of house I was interested, the kind of neighborhood and how far I was willing to commute from work and of course what my budget was. She then proceeded to research areas that fit within my comfort areas as well as a few that I would not normally think of.

Maria was very attentive and was great at helping me negotiate the first time home buying experience. I was very hesitant to make a first offer as it is a major financial commitment- but Maria talked me through the first offer and explained in clear and understandable terms what that offer was making me reasponsible for.

Maria is very knowledgeable about what to look for in a house- potential problem areas that are going to cost a significant investment vs. those things that are easy to change for not a lot of money.

I felt that Maria was putting my best interests first and would not let me purchase a house that was not right for me. I am the proud owner of a home in an area I never thought I would be able to afford. Thank you Maria for making my first home buying experience successful. I will definitely call Maria when I am ready to start looking for my new home.

Helped me rent a home.

Maria Murphy was recommended to me a handful of independent people and I am super glad she was because I have had a great experience working with her. Not only was she knowledgable about the Seattle area and the current markets, her no-nonsense approach was very efficient and didn't waste my time. She was always very responsive to my calls and emails, constantly providing me with new homes to look at and most importantly she was very patient with me. She also is an attorney so when she would go over paperwork and contracts she would take the time to explain the legal jargon that most of us stress about due to ignorance. Due to her credibility and expert advice, I never had a problem going forward and signing paperwork.  More Less

Bought a Single Family home in 2010 for approximately $275K in Anderson Island, WA.

I was very pleased that Maria represented me in my purchase of a short sale home. Not only did she keep me well informed of the progress of the sale she was able to prepare me for all of the possible complications that often occur in such sales. Her background as an attorney and her good character gives the winning combination of being the perfect agent to represent you in your purchase or sale of your home. Thank you Maria!  More Less
