Kathy Murphy - Broker Associate
Kathy's highly successful approach begins with careful listening to her clients’ needs. Then she puts her vast knowledge of Chicago real estate and her command of Baird and Warner's cutting-edge technology to work for them. Always available to answer questions and to take care of buyers’ and sellers’ concerns, Kathy is known for her follow-through and her ability to remain calm in a fast-paced and sometimes turbulent business. Her clients also count on her for no-nonsense advice and for first-rate referrals of other professionals they may need.
A native Kentuckian, Kathy arrived in Chicago as a corporate transferee so knows the feeling of arriving in a new city, needing to find a realtor to trust and find the perfect condo and location. She now lives in the historic neighborhood of Lakewood Balmoral in Edgewater. Having raised her 2 sons in Chicago she is very familiar with the needs of families in the city. She loves living in Chicago and life as a realtor. As a seasoned professional Kathy has built an impressively loyal following and referral base.
As we deal with today's Covid19, there will always be uncertainty in the financial markets and in global politics but Chicago real estate has proven itself over the long term. There is a new construction inventory for the luxury market and there are a lot of re-sales for the first-time buyer or those up-sizing or down-sizing as their families change.
For sellers, the market is still benefiting from historically low mortgage rates - but the best price and best terms are achieved by agents who consistently use effective marketing techniques and proven communications with attention to the needs of prospective buyers. Knowing this, Kathy employs a wide range of techniques and media tools to get the best possible outcomes for his sellers.
