Paul Murphy's enthusiasm for our property, and his understanding - born of his market knowledge and fresh research he conducted - of how it compared to other properties listed or recently sold, were in themselves highly impressive. That he also worked tirelessly to show the house to prospective buyers, and communicated his passion for it so well, helped us realize a tremendous record price.— Seller

Committed to his clients’ success, Paul is known for his warmth, work ethic, analytical skills and negotiating savvy.

Prior to joining Corcoran, Paul put these skills to good use as a commercial real estate broker in Downtown Brooklyn, where he brokered many commercial leases and investment sales. He achieved great results for many customers, including a record-breaking sales price for the owners of a 47,000 square foot hotel development site.
Paul’s passion for real estate includes a sideline buying and renovating townhouses. He bought and rebuilt two in Brooklyn, and sold them profitably through The Corcoran Group.
