Karen Murphy

I am a native of New Jersey and a 25-year resident of Monmouth County. A Graduate of Georgetown University with an MBA in Finance and Marketing, I decided to pursue real estate after 20+ years in corporate marketing. Real Estate has always been a passion of mine, and I have built three homes and renovated four others. The combination of my professional and personal experiences enables me to bring a unique skill set to my real estate customers including first hand knowledge of the market, creative marketing plans, outstanding customer service, property staging and the ability to analyze a property’s endless possibilities. Having raised four boys in Rumson/Fair Haven, I can also share a wealth of knowledge regarding the school systems, local clubs, social activities and much more. It is hard to find a better place to live than Monmouth County with its proximity to beaches, rivers, golf courses and New York City! I am proud to be a part of the professional sales team at Heritage House Sotheby’s International Realty. Whether you are looking for your dream home or selling your treasure, I would love to help you make the experience a memorable one. Please call me any time!
