Choosing a real estate agent who has the tools, skills and experience you require can be as challenging as the home buying process itself. Let us make it simple for you.  Email us a list of your wants and needs and we will send you our suggestions to begin your search. Better yet, call us to chat.
We prefer the personal approach, and we especially enjoy working with buyers. We do extensive property searches and then coordinate home tours to educate and inform you, the buyer, as to your many options and possibilities for finding a home.
We love houses! Large or small, old or new, we enjoy showing property. We have years of experience and extensive knowledge of the Maine real estate market, dealing in residential condos, single families and land, to investment multi-units and commercial development. Based in Portland, we routinely do property tours in all the surrounding towns north, south and west -- along the coast or inland to the lakes. Wherever the business is, that is where we will be.
After all, that is what we do and have done for years, and we do it well.  No glitz or high pressure, just satisfying results in record time. How simple is that?

      Bought a Single Family home in 2011 for approximately $250K in Scarborough, ME.
      We have worked with real estate agents in the past and not had great experiences. One was horrible and the other was lackluster. Working with the Murphy Team has changed our opinion of what a real estate agent can do for us. They were truly an asset in purchasing this home and made it a much more pleasant experience. They're very responsive and we knew they were 100% on our side and looking out for our best interest.  MoreLess

      Bought a Condo home in 2011 in Downtown, Portland, ME.
      For the past few years, my wife and I have been looking to purchase a second home in Portland, Maine. We wanted a condo in the downtown area. Because we live in Syracuse, NY we only came to Portland to vacation a few times a year, which meant we only had opportunities to look at properties from time to time. We didn’t have a lot of luck with our first agent because she didn’t know the downtown area very well. So I began a search for another agent with whom we could work, scouring the internet for the right fit. I looked first for agencies that were located in downtown Portland and then at the agent profiles of the sales agents. (I even “Google searched” a few agents to find out more about them.) When I came across Richard & Jean Murphy’s profile, everything seemed to match my criteria. The Google search came back extremely positive too. I reached out to the Murphy Team. We communicated by e-mail and phone till we came to Portland the following week.

      From the first time that my wife and I met The Murphy Team – we knew we picked the right people! They were on time for our meeting and both had big smiles on their faces. They took us through six different properties in the exact locations we were hoping to live, they spoke knowledgably about the downtown area, the specific locations where we were most interested to buy, and even about the Home Owners Associations of the condos as well. Well, as luck would have it, we found the condo of our dreams! Richard and Jean went straight to work putting the comparables together and helped us put together a very fair purchase offer. Our offer was quickly accepted--they know what they’re doing!

      Then the hard part began. We needed to secure a mortgage as well as a home inspection before we left town the next week. Because we didn’t know anyone to work with in Portland, we relied on Richard and Jean to refer us to particular mortgage lenders as well as a reliable home inspector. The people that we ended up working with are wonderful and spoke very highly of Richard and Jean. Their reputation in Portland is sparkling. They seamlessly work hand in hand with the bank and also the seller’s agent as well.

      Richard and Jean are not just another husband and wife team. They both have different skill sets that complement each other (and were a huge help to us). Richard is more of the sales person of the two. He also has many business relationships in the area as well. Jean is almost always by his side but is also the behind the scenes person. She is the one chasing down all the survey information and the HOA by-laws, budgets and rules & regulations. They are a great team.

      While we were in town, they made sure we signed all of the necessary paperwork and were right by our side through the home inspection. When we finally had to go back to Syracuse we felt very comfortable knowing that Richard and Jean were on the job. They stayed in constant communication with the bank and the seller’s agent to keep things on track. There is no way the closing date was going to be delayed with The Murphy Team watching over things.

      The closing date arrived before we knew it. The final inspection went smoothly and the actual closing itself went off without a hitch. We credit the Murphy Team for a stress-free home buying experience.

      We learned through this whole process that Richard and Jean Murphy are knowledgeable, reliable, honest and overall great people. We are now proud to call them our friends and neighbors.

      Please feel free to call me as a personal reference about Richard and Jean Murphy.

      Showed home in 2011 in Portland, ME.
      First of all you dont need to sign a contract with your real estate broker and they require it. Second off they tried to tell me that the rural housing development loans apply to Portland, which of course they dont. I could go on but you get my point. I think a broker should help you find your dream home, or the best investment for your money. They shouldn't just be looking for a comission check.  MoreLess
