  • A little more about me - 

    I have owned a home in Lakewood Balmoral in Edgewater for 25 years. Arrived in Chicago due to a corporate transfer, bought a condo in a Lakeview high rise and found Chicago was exactly where I wanted to live. I have 2 sons who grew up in the city so very familiar with Chicago schools and kids growing up in the city.

    Chicago has so many great neighborhoods and keep a pulse on all areas in the city. The challenge of finding the right home for my clients is always a pleasure. And of course strategically selling a client's home for the maximum price is my constant goal.

    I have all the resources Baird and Warner behind me but I am involved in  every step of the selling and buying process with my clients. My business over the last 18 years is mainly referral based and the 100% satisfaction of my clients is my strongest piece of my personal marketing program.

"I've known Kathy for over 10 years. They say that business and friendship should be separate but when it came to selling our place I could not think of hiring any other agent other than Kathy to sell our place. 9 years ago she helped us find the same place after looking at over 50 places over a period of one year! When to came to selling our place ( because of an overseas move) were were very clear as to what we wanted. We loved our place and made changes that suited our needs. Kathy respected our choices and did not force us to do renovations suited for prospective buyers. She was very supportive and patient throughout the selling process. We got an offer within 5-6 weeks of listing our place!"

"Kathy was a joy to work with! She listened to my needs and showed me homes that fit within my criteria. She was patient, insightful and persistent. I couldn't be happier with my new home, and it wouldn't have been possible without Kathy!"

"Kathy had our backs throughout the process. I appreciated her competitive pricing but calm, down to earth manner. And she clearly knew my neighborhood. Easiesy real estate (of 5) I’ve had, hands down."

"Kathy Murphy was highly recommended to me, and after working with Kathy on the purchase of my new home, I highly recommend her as well! I had fired my first realtor due to unmet expectations. Kathy went above and beyond my expectations. While not a first time home buyer, it was my first time buying a condo and my first purchase in the city. Kathy is very knowledgeable, professional and provided invaluable insights and expert guidance. She is always very responsive to any way I chose to communicate (text, email and phone). She was very flexible to my schedule and always on time to our appointments. She didn't balk at walking to many showings in the most frigid of winter weather! Kathy almost immediately learned my wants and needs. She was very patient as they continued to evolved as I slowly learned exactly what they were. She did a great job negotiating on my behalf and kept me informed on all the details and steps in the process. Kathy is a genuine pleasure and I will definitely utilize her when it is time to rent or sell my unit."

"Kathy Murphy sold my condominium in Chicago in 2/2018. Kathy was a true professional in every aspect of the process and I couldn't have been more pleased with the effort she put forth and the outcome she helped us achieve. Kathy is very knowledgeable about the Chicago residential real estate market, and she went above and beyond to help us with an employer requested relocation. I highly recommend choosing Kathy to represent you with the purchase or sale of your next home."
