"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."
"Kathy is absolutely wonderful. We started our search for our first place with only a budget and a deadline. It was overwhelming. Kathy was recommended to us by a couple friends and we reached out to her hoping for some guidance.
She was responsive from day one and had the patience to explain the process and answer all (and we had a lot!) of our questions. Kathy was available by phone, email, and text. She listened to what we wanted and needed, and advised us as to the important details we hadn't given thought to.
Once she knew our dream list and timeline, she sent us listings as soon as they were available, and set up showings so quickly we were often the first to view a place. This was invaluable.
After a couple showings, it was clear she understood our likes/dislikes and really customized the process for us. As first-time buyers without much experience, Kathy's ability to hone in on what we wanted and her knowledge about the market made the process as enjoyable as reasonably possible given the stressful nature of such a large and important buy. In fact, it was overall an exciting and fun experience.
Once we found the place we loved and knew we absolutely wanted, Kathy guided us through the offer and contract process all the way through the closing. Again, she was extremely responsive and willing to answer the million questions we seemed to constantly come up with. She never seemed rushed or annoyed, and she was always detailed in her responses.
We ended up with the perfect place. Just as important, however, we know we had a realtor who had our best interest in mind and who was committed to help us through every step of the process. Kathy is experienced, knowledgeable, and has the skills necessary to get you into the place of your dreams. I cannot recommend her enough."
"Kathy was the perfect realtor for us. After taking us on a few showings she honed in on exactly the type of home we were looking for and it was only a matter of time before she found us our new place. Very accommodating, very willing to offer guidance for inexperienced home buyers. I couldn't recommend her highly enough!"
"Kathy Murphy handled the sale of our home where we had lived for more than 30 years, and she found us the condo where we presently are living. Perhaps the best aspect of her work is that she quickly got to know our likes and dislikes and how to match us to a new home that will serve us well far into the future. We actually had some fun times looking at potential apartments. Conversely, the sale of our house was somewhat complicated, and her patience and calm demeanor were exactly what was required. She also made logical and reasonable suggestions based on her experience. Now that all of this is behind us, we feel very good about the entire process."
