“Growing up in New Orleans taught me to keep my eyes open to the beauty, sounds, tastes, and people that impact our lives daily. Now my Florida life provides the magic and ever changing beauty of the power of nature. The water, skies and wildlife are an ever-changing canvas. Come and see for yourself! There is truly something here for everyone!”

Donna’s strength is her people skills. When you talk, she listens! She is committed to our community and families. For Donna Murphy, being a REALTOR® and working with families as they choose the home of their dreams, or part with the home they love, are both an honor and a pleasure.

Donna’s intention in business and day-to-day life is to create relationships based upon trust, and thereby creating rewarding experiences for all parties – the kind of relationships that continue to bring people back together time and again.

Donna's Qualifications

Donna has invested heavily in her education to insure that she offers only the highest and best level of service to her clients.  Her certifications include:

ABR-Accredited Buyer's Representative is the benchmark of excellence in buyer representation.  

In a typical real estate transaction, the seller is represented by the listing agent.  In new construction, the builder is represented by the agent that greets you at the door of the model home (the builder's agent).  It is the listing and builder's agent's job to negotiate the best deal for the seller or builder.  A buyer’s representative is a licensed real estate professional who represents YOU, the home buyer, in your transaction - the buyer representative's job is to negotiate on YOUR behalf and to protect YOUR interests.

 If you’ve formalized an agency relationship, typically by signing a buyer’s rep agreement with a buyer’s rep, you can expect him or her to:

  • Understand your specific needs and wants, and to locate appropriate properties;

  • Assist you in determining how much you can afford (pre-approve your mortgage);

  • Negotiate aggressively on your behalf to get you the best deal possible on your real estate purchase;

  • Represent and protect your interests exclusively throughout the transaction;

  • Preview and/or accompany you in viewing properties;

  • Research properties and areas, to identify any problems or issues that you should consider;

  • Advise you in formulating your offer;

  • Provide a list of qualified vendors (such as home inspectors, contractors, attorney's, lenders, etc. for other related services that may be needed;

  • Keep track of all the details throughout the entire transaction-to closing and beyond.

SFR - Short Sale & Foreclosure Resource - Donna is an expert in knowing how to help sellers maneuver the complexities of short sales as well as in helping buyers pursue short sale and foreclosure opportunities.  Her training and experience provides a framework which enable her to:

  • Direct distressed sellers to finance, tax, and legal professionals.
  • Educate sellers on the options available to them when they are considering short selling their homes.
  • Evaluate and qualify sellers for short sales.
  • Develop a comprehensive short-sale package that will be favorably viewed by the seller's lender.
  • Protect buyers throughout the short sale transaction

"Donna Murphy, both separately and in tandem with her husband/ partner Tom Murphy showed exemplary performance in the sale of our home. She was incredibly cognizant of our needs, our investment, and our trust. The beginning of our relationship was business, and nearly immediately we became friends. I have recommended her to friends and family, and will continue to do so. We could not be more satisfied and grateful!" - Annique Newton
