MiMi Murphy brings more than two decades of experience in Luxury Residential Sales, Commercial Sales, New Construction and Property Development. Originally a native Manhattanite, MiMi seasoned her market expertise at The Corcoran Group as Vice President and one of Manhattan’s Top Luxury Agents successfully representing over $175,000,000 in sales in a 7 year period prior to joining Douglas Elliman.
Recent developments in MiMi’s personal life motivated her to re-evaluate her priorities and brought her home to the Gold Coast where she has maintained a residence for over 30 years. “I’ve always had a love affair with the Gold Coast – North Shore. It is a safe haven for me, a retreat of sorts where the nostalgia literally takes you back in time just being surrounded by the beauty of it's nature. We are very fortunate to live here. I can’t imagine ever leaving - ever.”
MiMi is known for her honest and direct communication. “I believe in my properties, and make the commitment to sell and buy each home as if it were my own. I do whatever it takes to see my obligation through to completion. No detail is too small or unimportant – if it's important to my client – it's important to me. I make and take time to support and guide and most importantly – I listen. I hear what is being said and not what I want to hear. Sometimes that’s extremely difficult given the climate of today’s market. Listening is a gift, it doesn’t cost a dime but it does take time and that’s priceless.”
Real Estate is always changing and challenging – but for me it’s a process. If you’d like some help or just need an ear, I’d be happy to listen. Well done is better than well said. I can get the job done and help you through the process. Life is Good on the Gold Coast – Enjoy!
MiMi (Jean) Murphy performed in an outstanding manner in gaining a contract for sale within three weeks after the listing of our home in this buyers’ market. With a closing now scheduled at 60 days after the initial listing, as one well versed in the real estate market, I cannot overstate the marvel of her efforts.
At the outset, MiMi demonstrated a distinct knowledge of market conditions in our area, the value of our home, and, especially, the ability to identify potential buyers to effect such an expeditious sale. She presented us with the demographics of the area, a survey of comparable properties sold and those currently on the market, as well as current trends that pointed to drawing prospective buyers.
However, MiMi’s efforts did not end there. She was especially helpful in our preparing our home for sale. We needed to upgrade the basic interior aesthetics of the residence including the refurbishing of a bathroom, internal repairs, and the strategic use of furnishings and lighting throughout. She accompanied us to shopping locales and provided a great sounding board for our deliberations in selecting just the right items for our enhancements. Her ideas on lighting provided a sparkling vision for prospective buyers during their visits.
The exterior, so important for first impressions, was especially problematical. MiMi was expert in transforming an aging abode with both landscaping suggestions and a previously planned repainting of the entire exterior in colors currently in trend. She then provided us with recommendations for vendors that proved quite able in completing the exterior improvements to our delight and convenience. Her recommendations in both color and design complemented each other and rendered a mundane portrait into a spectacular vista for both prospective buyers and neighbors alike that continues to draw accolades.
To complete her efforts, MiMi aggressively marketed our home by detailing the intangible benefits of living here in Dosoris Woods through online presentations and with other cooperating brokers. Her familiarity with the area was most beneficial in pointing out the landscape of the Woods, its rural atmosphere and yet how it maintains both an individual nature and intimacy in life here.
MiMi maintained a professional persona throughout in meeting with prospective buyers utilizing a warm and informative approach to the sale in a controlled environment. She quickly pointed out alternatives to visitors who expressed reservations concerning layout or other issues that they saw as potential drawbacks. In securing the buyer, she accompanied them on inspection tours, highlighting features of our home, framing the advantages of living in our neighborhood, and filling in any information that they needed that brought them to their decision.
The most noted aspect of MiMi’s nature is her ability to integrate her management, marketing, design, and communicative skills. My wife and I have both learned through over 6 decades of professional experience between us that it is impressive to be highly proficient in any of these disciplines on just about any employment platform. To be in possession of, and properly utilize and integrate these skills is truly extraordinary.
I am most gratified to say also that MiMi’s professional prowess does not mask her warm, human, considerate and empathetic personality. She sees the daily stress in her clients of such an endeavor and readily sets about to calm the waters by relating with us her professionalism, her sense of confidence and joy in her work.
MiMi goes above and beyond in all respects. Her presentation skills in staging and photography are superb, which these days can make or break a home's marketing, as most people do their initial
shopping on the internet. We followed her recommendations, and our home sold in under a week (and not due to underpricing). We had put a lot into our home, but MiMi helped us make the most of it. She is generous, knowledgeable and extremely experienced.
Mimi Murphy is an extraordinary individual as well as fine realtor/broker. I have never seen such a super professional, hands-on, knowledgeable, go get 'em support arm to any seller as well as buyer! A rare find indeed! Wow!
She is raising the bar for the competition here in LI! Superb!
Mimi came to us with lots of positive, constructive energy, though there was so much for us to do before our home would be ready to place on the market. She offered a hand in our prep of our home to sell, this is unheard of! When Mimi says she treats every home as if she were selling her own...you can believe it!
Mimi has all the right skills & expertise in home construction, staging and selling here in NY. She can make it happen. We are so happy and blessed to have found her.
Thank you Mimi, we could not have done it without you!
We found Mimi to be a very likable, punctual, hands-on realtor, who took her job very seriously when agreeing to list our home. She took the time to educate us on how we should ready our home to enter the market and provided us with a comprehensive market analysis from our neighborhood and general area. If something needed repairing, she gave us referrals and even landed a hand in the work herself which was very impressive as well as extremely giving of her time and knowledge of contracting! She has given us great tips for making the house look its very best for showing. Mimi is a perfectionist about both staging and photography and she was a great escort through these processes. Mimi also has g
