With a successful background in financial services and consulting and a keen understanding of local markets, Mike Murphy started in real estate as an investor himself. After substandard experiences with other agents, he saw an opportunity to bring his own financial-world skills to a new career. A strong communicator and seasoned negotiator with a keen business sense, Mike affords those who work with him a unique and informed market perspective; he is a calming force with the ability to understand his clients` goals and help achieve them. Most of all, he is passionate about raising the industry's level of integrity, improving its professionalism, and making its marketing strategies more sophisticated.
A first-generation Irish American and a New York native, Mike received his BS in Finance and Economics from the University of Albany. He loves the Bay Area's quality of life and perfect climate, and he and his wife are (like many of his clients) raising a family here. Mike is an avid runner, bicyclist, and rock climber.
