Residential Resales, New Developments, Tribeca
Sean Murphy Turner, has been marketing and selling dramatic lofts, townhouses and some of the most sought-after homes in the most dynamic neighborhoods of Manhattan since 1994 and has been a top broker with Stribling and Associates for 20 years. As a well-respected broker representing buyers and sellers alike in the resale market, both uptown and downtown, Sean has compiled an impressive list of satisfied clients and record-breaking transactions. She is often quoted in the press, and is a fixture in The Real Deal annual "Top Residential Agents" list and was one of a select few listed as a "hot shot broker" by New York Magazine.
As the fifth child of a family of ten children, Sean has negotiated since birth. She is creative when it comes to problem-solving and making deals and she works well with clients and peers to develop long-standing relationships based on trust, hard work and knowledge.
In addition to possessing an innate ability to sell the property and close the deal, Sean brings to the table a great skill for conceptualizing a project and devising innovative marketing schemes. Developers look to Sean to assess the viability of new projects and to advise on floorplans, design, amenities and pricing. Her successful Skylofts tag, originally applied at 145 Hudson Street, has been widely copied and can now be found in half a dozen cities across America. She understands the nuances involved in pricing strategy and inventory control and provides a keen understanding of space, design and practical construction considerations. Sean is currently Director of Sales for One Vandam, a BKSK-designed 25 unit ground-up project in Soho. Previous new developments have included 130 West 12th Street, a 42 unit pre-war conversion by Rudin Family Development located in the West Village, The Fischer Mills Building at 62 Beach Street, the Roman and Williams designed 211 Elizabeth Street in Nolita, 147 Waverly Place, 124 Hudson Street and The Skylofts at 145 Hudson Street. The 7,400 SF Skylofts penthouse, which sold and closed for $30,000,000, set a record as the highest price coop or condominium sale south of 58th Street in Manhattan. Sean was also involved with initial concepts, layout, design, pricing strategies and marketing for the Plaza Residences.
Throughout her real-estate career, Sean has been active in community affairs and fundraising, most notably as chair for three years of Taste of Tribeca, the world-class food event which raises funds for the enrichment programs for PS 234 and PS 150. She lives in Tribeca with her husband and has two children.
Formerly an actress, singer and dancer with Broadway, television and film credits, Sean moved to New York City from Kansas after graduating with a BFA from the University of Kansas.Today, she successfully employs the creativity, confidence, persistence and people skills she fine-tuned in the show-business community in the equally competitive field of real estate marketing and sales.
What could be more exciting than seeing wonderful homes and meeting great people? I love the entire process - from the first "hello" to the congratulations at closing.
