About me

A little about Paul Murphy

In 1986 I graduated from University of Pennsylvania with an MBA in finance and spent 26 years on Wall Street as an equity sales trader. I joined Houlihan Lawrence Inc. four years ago  to team up with my wife Lisa Murphy who has been a top agent with Houlihan Lawrence for the last 17 years. As a team we are able to be there for you when you need us. Our goal is to give you the time and attention to detail that you deserve to help you with your real estate transaction.

We work with you to research the market, analyze the trends, educate you on what works best for you and your family. Our goal is to make sure your closing goes smoothly and worry free. Having lived in Rye for 20 plus years and raised our 3 boys here our local knowledge goes well beyond real estate. We are confident that you will get the highest level of attention that your family deserves.

Personal Interests

I enjoy fixing up and renovating both old and new homes. I live in a 1922 home that has been completely redone.  Using my extensive contacts I take a lot of pride in helping new homeowners get settled or working with existing homeowners getting ready to sell.  I love to play golf in the summer and ski in the winter. I have had 2 holes in one that are 26 years apart. Married with 3 grown children we have loved living in Rye for the for the past 21 years.

Paul has been an excellent broker for us and we highly recommend working with him. He was very accommodating to meet around our schedules and quickly responded to all of our questions and requests. Once he sold us our house he provided us with numerous helpful contacts to help us settle in, including an electrician, carpenter, roofer, an AV guy... to name a few. He was extremely attentive before, during and after the sale of our beautiful new home. He is very knowledgable about Rye and well connected.

Lisa and Paul Murphy make an incredible real estate team.  Beyond a strong and comprehensive assessment of the market, they also bring real strategic thinking whether you are buying or selling a property.  We have used Lisa to sell two homes (achieving our price targets) and purchase another.  Our ONLY disappointment is she and Paul don't cover our new locale in California.  Excellent communication, impeccable attention to detail and total turnkey service that exceeds all expectation is what you get with the Murphys! Five stars just don't do them justice.

Seller's Review

We sold our house with Paul Murphy and he was a pleasure to work with. He researched the market and listed the house with a price that would attract buyers. Any issues that came up, he resolved without delay. We were able to sell the house during the summer, allowing us to move straight onto our  next project. Working with Paul was a highly professional experience

Paul and Lisa are the best realtors for the Rye residential market.  They provided clear and insightful descriptions of the various neighborhoods, school options, benefits and negatives of various locations and homes. They quickly narrowed down our selection to a small set of quality homes, and  provided honest guidance on price negotiation.  In addition, they were extremely helpful on a range of collateral issues that made our move to Rye much simpler and more positive.  I would recommend them go anyone and utilize them again myself

Paul listed and sold my property in a timely manner. He was extremely professional and attentive to all details involved with this transaction. I felt very comfortable trusting him with the sale of my property while I was out of the country. I highly recommend Paul Murphy.
