Kristina Murphy was extremely knowledgeable and helpful to us in preparing our home to be placed on the market. We were very anxious to sell and needed to do so quickly as we relocated out of state even before our home went up for sale! Kristina kept in constant contact with us about our showings and the feedback our home was receiving. She was honest and straight-forward and we were able to sell our home in less than two weeks! We feel very fortunate that we were able to do so in this difficult housing market. Thanks to Kristina, selling our home was a pleasant experience and we would recommend her highly to anyone in need of a good realtor!

 Very personable young woman. She gives her recommendations but is willing to listen to your thought if you don't agree or have other ideas . Understands the process very well but you may have to slow her down to make sure she tells you what is next. She is easy to reach and answers questions at almost anytime of day!

 Kristina was a great realtor to work with. She was very responsive and always willing to answer any of our questions! She is very knowledgeable, and we would recommend her to any of our family and friends.

Kristina was a pleasure to work with and whenever we e-mailed her with questions/concerns or even advice, she responed immediately! She made the process of buying a home easy and timely. Kristina worked with us to make sure that all of our requests were met and I felt very comfortable in her hands.

Kristina is an absolutely wonderful agent that I recommend to anyone looking to buy or sell a home. She asked the right questions and understood what we wanted in selling our home of 28+ years. She worked around our schedule so it was convenient for us. She did a great job of negotiating with the buyer to get the price we were asking for and had our home sold in under 30 days! Kristina is fun to work with, very professional, and makes you feel like you are the most important client she has in her portfolio.

Kristina is fabulous!! it was a long process on our part deciding which to choose. she was willing to come out and let us see the house several times anytime we needed too. She was patient and understanding, and she fought for the things we wanted when finally choosing "the one".

My spouse and I screened several "prominent" local realtors, and chose Kristina. We are SOOOO glad! Her local expertise, tactful handling of all "negotiations" of selling and her every recommendation was spot on! She showed up promptly any time she was needed, was light years ahead of other realtors when we compared with others, and skillfully handled the sale of our home -- and made sure we were at least one step ahead of what we needed to be doing! 

We could not have done it without Kristina Murphy -- and wholeheartedly recommend her 110%!! She was ALWAYS available via phone, text, and email. We NEVER felt like we were just a listing and forgotten! She is the BEST overall realtor anyone could ever use! She offers and provides QUALITY SERVICE!! And btw, when we were out of town, she came over and watered plants, "swiftered" the floor and made sure everything was perfect for a viewing! How many other realtors would personally do this?

Kristina is an exceptional real estate agent who is both professional and experienced and knows how to get a sale done. She is also very honest about things and not motivated by what is in it for her.

Kristina is simply the best. When my husband and I first sat down with her we weren't even sure we were in a position to purchase our first home. As first time home buyers, she took us through every step of the process and helped us find the perfect starter home. We were young and just starting out so we know she didn't make a lot of commission off of us, but the level of service never reflected that! We ended up purchasing a foreclosure and she made the process seamless. She even came out to show us the home we ended up purchasing in a snow storm because she knew we needed to act quickly. I would absolutely recommend her to a friend- in fact, I have and they had nothing but positive things to say as well!!!

Kristina is helpful, knowledgeable and does not make you feel silly for asking questions I am sure she has heard a million times. It is very nice to work with someone who is easily accessible and you never have to chase down for information or wonder if they are getting things done.

I would recommend Kristina to anyone that is looking to purchase a home!! She is extremely personable and helpful. She is quick to respond to questions and concerns and has a great sense of humor. You can't go wrong having her assist in your home search!

Kristina was very helpful in the selling of our old property and the purchasing of our new one. Her best quality is her knowledgeable honesty about comparable properties. This was extremely beneficial when we listed our house; she was very honest about the market conditions of our listing property and had our house sold in a mere four days. For our new home, my husband and I were looking at properties for 15months in a 40 mile radius. Most Realtors would have been fed up or unprofessional by the end of that search, but not Mrs. Murphy. When we finally selected our new home (85 miles away from the first house she showed us), she still was patient and urged us to not compromise on our new property. Once again, her knowledge of property value helped us beat other bidders while purchasing at a great price.

Kristina Murphy was worth a million to me during the time I had my house listed as well as after we had taken it off the market. Even when I found someone to buy the house after I had taken it off the market, she was always willing to help whenever and wherever she could and if she didn't know the answer to one of my questions, she would find someone who could give me the answer. She was always very quick to respond anytime I left a message on her voicemail or sent her an email. She went above and beyond the call of duty and was always a pleasure to work with. She has a winning personality and always makes you feel like you are her most important client. I would definitely recommend her highly to anyone who is looking for a realtor.

Kristina really seems to take a personal interest in finding the best home for one's needs. I appreciated the extra time she put forth in helping me buy the house that I'm in (meeting on weekends and off hours to sign contracts and go over paperwork so I wouldn't miss any open windows). She paid attention to things I was interested in for a house and definitely did a good job of tailoring the homes we viewed to those properties. Thanks for everything!

Dealing with real estate agents has never been something we've enjoyed. However, Kristina was so pleasant and so helpful that the process was much more enjoyable this time. She really knows her stuff and is obviously well-liked by other agents. That's a real plus! She was really patient with us as well and always seemed happy to explain things. She found a house for us that we completely missed on our own searches and it turned out to be a really beautiful home that we feel is our dream home. So we're very grateful for that. If we ever have to move again, we'll definitely get Kristina to be our agent.

My husband and I started working with Kristina in February 2011. Initially we were looking for HUD or bank owned property. We toured numerous houses and put in a couple different offers. The first house I loved was owned by the bank which I work for and they have a policy they can't sell to their employees :(. I was really bummed. It took months to find another house that we liked but Kristina was dedicated and always made herself available to see any property of our choice. She always came prepared with information on the property and when viewing she was always able to see the things I missed.. leaks on ceilings, mold, neighbors not keeping up their property. These are all very important things that one can easily miss when caught up in the excitement of house hunting but Kristina never missed a thing. We were very impressed at her professionalism and knowledge. I never felt pressured when making offers or touring houses. She put in so much work for us and we got a great buy on a house we love. The house ended up not being a HUD or bank owned but one in move in ready condition. She was willing to show us a wide variety of properties to allow us to make the best decision and find what we really wanted in the end. She was also with us throughout the whole loan process and communicated back and forth with our loan officer when we needed additional docs and signatures or when the bank couldn't get it together and do their job. When things got a bit sticky with the sellers in regards to repairs she put herself in the line of fire to ENSURE we got what we wanted and asked for. She even went out to the house for repair estimates when I couldn't leave work. I could go on and on about how incredible she is and how easy she makes the process but words just don't do it/her justice. She's fantastic and I'm confident that anyone who decides to work with her will have nothing short of a great experience. Thanks Kristina for your hard work and dedication. It's obvious you love what you do and are great at it. One other thing, I feel like after everything is said and done I made a good friend in the process. :) My husband and I couldn't be happier.

Kristina outlined the process easy to understand manner. She marketed our house well with appropriate pricing, excellent descriptions and also pictures that show cased the house nicely. Throughout the whole sale process, she stayed on top of the progress and her quick responses kept issues (such as the new keys I had made not fitting the front door) from becoming a big deal. Kristina provided professional and comfortable presence that was nice to work with. ...and our house did sell in less than a week.

I have worked with Kristina Murphy for a few years and have been very impressed with the knowledge and the experience that she has in the Real Estate field. She is very responsive anytime I have to get a hold of her and very understanding. I recommend Kristina for any Real Estate needs. We have been so pleased.

This realtor was very well informed and professional. She had a correct answer for every question. She even advised me on how to stage my Dad's home so it would look better at showings. She explained bad carpet makes buyers just see what they have to replace and will offer lower. By replacing the carpet I received a better off. When the first contract fell through she was very upbeat and kept me going until another interested buyer made an offer. She was there for the inspection, the walk thru and the closing. She is a great realtor that I would happily recommend.

Kristina was very patient during my home search. Once I found one I loved, she was very knowledgable and helped me get a great deal!

Was very impressed at how knowledgable she is & how she worked with us to find exactly what we were looking for.

loved her!! would highly recommend her to anyone who is buying or selling!

We have had Kristina Murphy assist us in buying and selling several homes that we have "flipped." We have been VERY impressed with her attention to us and our homes. Our success to selling our homes quickly is a credit to her abilities i.e. gathering appropriate comps, advising us, etc. She is very professional and follows through with anything that needs her attention. We could not be more pleased! We have buying and selling homes for 20+ years now, and she is our top choice.

Kristina was always extremely helpful, responsive and understanding. This was a tough house to sell in today's economy and she gave us hope when we were about to give up. In terms of looking for our new home, we must have dragged her all over Madison and Union County. She worked vwery hard to help us find a home that we would be happy with that would also meet our needs. We have worked with several different realtors over the years and we can honestly say that she has been the best by far. The thing that stands out the most to me is her ability to provide advice on low cost common sense solutions to issues that we experienced with the house we were selling. We could have easily spent thousands of unnecessary dollars on home repair issues. She is well connected with the right services to get the job done right and cost efficiently. I would recommend her to anyone interested in buying or selling a home.

 Kristina is an absolutely wonderful agent that I recommend to anyone looking to buy or sell a home. She asked the right questions and understood what we wanted in selling our home of 28+ years. She worked around our schedule so it was convenient for us. She did a great job of negotiating with the buyer to get the price we were asking for and had our home sold in under 30 days! Kristina is fun to work with, very professional, and makes you feel like you are the most important client she has in her portfolio.

 We met Kristina several years ago when my husband was a Home Inspector. She was wonderful to work with, always very professional and kind. When we decided to look for a house that we could rehab and sell she was very helpful. She immediately started looking for a house that we could make a profit on. Once we found a house and began the rehab process she continued to monitor our progress and help us put together a plan for the sale of this property. After we listed it with Kristina, it was only on the market for about 3 days before we had it in contract! She works very hard for her clients. She is not just our realtor anymore...she is a friend:)

 We met Kristina by chance when we tried to buy a house my husband found way out in the country. We liked her right away and could tell she was someone we could trust. Our instincts were right. Buying just the right home and then letting go of the house where you raised your family can be extremely stressful. We were blessed beyond measure to have a realtor who guided us through the process, flawlessly. She never sugar coated anything, but in a professional manner told us what we needed to know. If you want a honest, straight forward, non pushy AMAZING realtor, hire Kristina Murphy.

 My husband and I were looking for a new home to start a family in and sell our condo. My sister and her husband recommended Kristina to us as they had a successful sell of their home with her as the listing agent. Kristina helped us find a nice home in a good location. Also our condo is currently in a lease to own contract so we are very pleased with her efforts. She answered our questions and gave us great advice. The best quality about Kristina is she wants what you want and will do anything she can do make that happen. That's great customer service!

 Kristina Murphy was a pleasure to work with. We were buying our second house and wanted this house to be the house we would be in for quite a while. Kristina was very prompt on getting back to me one any questions I had, always returned my phone calls in a timely matter. Never got upset with how many houses we wanted to look at. I would definitely recommend her as a Realtor in either buying or selling your house.
