WE WOULD GIVE HIM 10 STARS IF WE COULD! I'm sure there are a lot of good realtors out there but, if you want the one that goes above and beyond the call of duty, who is responsive, timely, makes you feel like you're his only client who listens and brings you back to your priorities over and over again, who won't let you settle, who wants to see you and your family in the right house, in the right community, and knows how to take the stress out the process only Shaun Murphy will do! We found Shaun on line and gave him a call back in May. We hadn't listed our home, but were considering it, and just wanted to see what was available in the Alexandria area. Shaun gave us an entire day as we researched the market, even though we weren't seriously looking. Our confidence in him was immediate, he knows his business, the areas, the market. Two weeks later we were on the market and house hunting for real, but our wish list was long, our budget limited, and our dreams too big to settle. As the process went on week after week, house after house, my enthusiasm dwindled. Was there nothing we could afford that work? Shaun assured us there was, to give it time, not to settle. And that one single point about Shaun is so important. There were times when he could have influenced us to purchase a house was "good enough". Instead, this honest and amazing man would say "this isn't the house for you, you won't be happy here. Be patient, it will happen and it did. Boy did it! After over 30 houses and what seemed like hundreds of hours searching on the internet we got the call. Shaun found a house he was excited for us to see! We were one of 3 bids, but with Shaun as our representative we won! We closed on that house 2 weeks ago in a seamless and painless process. House hunting wasn't easy for us, we'd settled once before and didn't want to make the same mistake. Shaun helped us fine tune our needs and separate them from our wants, and still we got most all of them. All of the important items for sure!!! We weren't the easiest clients, and yet he was always patient, supportive and kind. If we emailed late at night, three minutes later he'd respond. He's tireless. He was our champion, and we felt truly blessed to have him guide us through the process. We highly recommend Shaun Murphy!
