New York City real estate professional Melissa Murphy is known for putting clients at ease with her approachable demeanor and vast industry knowledge. A consummate people person, she's equal parts confident guide and motivated go-getter.
For Melissa, a career in real estate has always been her destiny. Nearly everyone in her family has been involved in some aspect of the industry, including her great-grandmother and grandfather who launched the successful brokerage Murphy & Murphy in Greenwich, Connecticut, specializing in residential and commercial properties. Her grandfather was also a prolific investor and developer in Fairfield County.
Prior to real estate, Melissa honed her excellent people skills and creativity as an in-demand colorist at Frederic Fekkai Salon. She likens that career to real estate in that her goal was always to exceed her clients' expectations by listening closely, asking the right questions and committing herself to patience and hard work. Melissa resides in the Hudson Square neighborhood, which she loves for its ideal location between Tribeca, the West Village and SoHo. In her free time, she likes to balance exploring our great city's attractions and restaurants with traveling to destinations near and far.
