Lee was a fantastic advisor and negotiator for us during the grueling process of purchasing a house in Washington. She was very patient during the searching stage, taking us to dozens of houses during week days. And when we found the right house she negotiated hard and fast to get us a good price. Her assistant Erin is also super organized and responsive to our questions and requests. Kudos all around!
Lee Murphy is professional, highly experienced and very honest. She takes her work very seriously and doesn't waste time. She is an expert who provides solid advice and will work tirelessly on your behalf. She is a fun person to work with. She made our first house buying experience a very enjoyable journey. Thanks Lee!
My husband and I worked with another pair of realtors for a year before switching over to Lee Murphy and it was night and day working with her.
Lee helped me identify and secure my home in August 2015. She took the time to understand my family needs and advised me against properties she didn't think would be a good investment or fit my objectives in the long run. She was patient and held fast until we found the perfect home. Lee is straight forward and knows the DC metro market well. She was thorough in her market analysis and helped me negotiate a great price. Lee was also helpful in recommending contractors to complete the minor renovations I wanted before moving in. I'd recommend her to anyone. I felt very secure with her backing the whole home purchase process.
Lee is very personable and a champion of her clients. This has been the second time I have employed her services to purchase a home and plan on continuing to use her knowledge and skills for all my sales and purchases in the future.
Lee's the consummate professional. We found the house we wanted, and she acted quickly to submit our offer within days of it's going on the market. She was transparent and honest about everything and we ended up with a house we love. She walked us through all the steps of buying with as much clarity as we needed. She was there for us every step of the way, and is always available to answer questions and offer advice even now, years after we bought. We'll definitely call Lee when we're ready to sell.
As an architect, it is rare to find a real estate agent who really 'gets' what we do. Lee has represented me in the purchase of three properties and is keenly responsive to what architects look for when beginning a new project. She has advised me on the gut renovation and upgrade strategies and has been invaluable in fusing market concerns and economics with the design goals for each project. Lee understands the increasing desire and demand for good design and her input towards that end has been consistently spot on.
By pure luck, I came across Lee Murphy. I'm relatively new to the DC area, and I was going to attempt to navigate the DC housing market by myself. I made an appointment to view a condo Lee had listed, and about 5 minutes after meeting her I knew I needed her as my agent. I found Lee to be extremely knowledgeable, and she always looked out for my best interest. When issues arose at the closing, Lee was right there fighting for me! I never had to say a word. Whenever I hear someone is going to start looking to buy a home, I tell them about Lee and how wonderful it was having her as my agent. Buying a house can be so stressful, but Lee made it such an enjoyable experience!
Lee was an absolute joy to work with! She is highly knowledgeable about where to spend money to prepare your home for sale and has lots of resources to make it easier for you to pull it all together. Our house was staged beautifully. Lee also knows the market inside and out. The proof is in the results: we had an offer on our house six days after it went on the market. From there, Lee bent over backwards to make it an easy process for us, handling all the little details. She is a fabulous negotiator and is 100% looking out for her clients.
Fantastic agent! Lee is responsive and informative. As first time home sellers she patiently answered every question we had (sometimes multiple times) and guided us through the selling process. She aggressively marketed our property and did a wonderful job showing it, such that after the first weekend on the market we had multiple offers. Lee remained engaged and helpful throughout the closing process. Lee is particularly strong at staging properties, a skill that I believe added thousands of dollars to our net profit. I cannot recommend her highly enough.
Lee is responsive, knowledgeable, and fair. She has a great feel for the market. She is honest, and has her client's best interest at heart. She is a very good negotiator. Simply put, she is great at what she does.
