We will start by saying that buying a house can be an exciting, as well as a nerve wracking experience. We had been referred to work with Paul Murphy by a co-worker who had nothing but good things to say about him. In the end we can honestly say he did not disappoint. From the very start of the house hunting process you get a good sense of Paulís extensive experience as a realtor. Perhaps what impressed us the most is the way Paul patiently took his time to educate us on what to pay attention to with each home we visited. He pointed out both favorable, as well as unfavorable things that we would have easily overlooked. Furthermore he went to great lengths to make himself available for questions and concerns through each step of the home buying process. It has been less than a month since we closed on our new house. We feel that we ended up with a real gem of a home. We have absolutely no reservations referring Paul to anyone looking for a new home.

Paul is an exceptional Realtor, I have worked with him on 4 properties in 6 years so far and will continue. He is very knowledgeable about the process for investment or First time Home, very patient even if it takes a lot of visits or years for me to decide on a property. I have much more profitable investments because of him than I would have otherwise.

Paul was exceptional as usual, this is my third Real Estate sale with Ziprealty in the last 7 years and I will never use another service. Definately recommend Paul for everyone interested in professional, dedicated Realtor with significant experience in your local area.

Paul extensive knowlage and experience about all Real State related issues and Worcester Area were vital for completing my purchase successfully. Also Paul worked with me patiently for two and half years till we finally baught my first investment property last week. He never rushed me thru a sale. I have also felt that at all Times he had my best interest which is something Rare this days specially in the real state market. I will defiabntely refer Paul and ziprealty to many friend and will work with him again shortly on my next investment property.

This is my 3rd real estate transaction completed with Paul and I wouldn't want to have any other agent while I'm going through the process. This time was a purchase of a single family home and it took a long time and a lot of back and forth with two different sellers but we finally got the house we wanted. My wife and I were constantly worried that we were asking too much of Paul during the process but he was always very calm and patient in addressing all of our needs. And there didn't seem to be any situation that arose that he didn't have some knowledge about so his experience was a comfort as we moved through the process. I would absolutely recommend Paul as a broker in any real estate transaction you have. We came in contact with many other agents as we looked at houses and I was always happy that we had Paul representing us and not the other way around. There really are good and bad brokers out there and Paul is definitely one of the good ones.

I have worked with Paul now for over 6 years on a few different transactions and he is always great to deal with. This time I was selling my condo and the buyer and buyer's agent were particularly difficult to deal with. Paul handled them absolutely perfectly with his calm manner and knowledge of real estate transactions. And he also had to deal with two lawyers who weren't particularly versed in the area of real estate law so he gave me advice as to what I needed to do next - information that should have been coming from my lawyer. My wife and I are in the process of buying a house now and look forward to working with Paul again in the coming months. I would highly recommend him for all of your real estate brokerage needs!

Paul was very friendly, knowledgeable and helpful throughout the searching and buying process. He even gave me a ride to Cambridge to the closing because I was a little unsure of the location. I would highly recommend him to anyone I know who might be looking to buy or sell a home.

Paul was a tremendous help with assisting me in preparing the house to sell. He was meticulous to detail and making sure everything was in order before we went to market. Paul made the showing of the house go very smooth since he knew what to do ahead of time to save problems later. He was very clear about what houses were selling for in the area and made me aware of what to expect. Paul is very straightforward and trustworthy. I would definitely hire him if I sell any other real estate.

I was grateful to have Paul as my agent. He was always there for me through phone calls, texts, and e-mails. I enjoyed his sense of humor and picked up that he really cares about his clients and enjoys his work. I have recommended others to work with Paul that are starting the home search. The referrals that Paul gave me to help with the mortgage process were wonderful. My own bank dropped the ball in getting back to me to help me with the mortgage on time and Paul was there to give me the best people to call to get things moving. I am grateful for his help and hard work! Thank you Paul.

He was very patient, pleasant and professional. He worked with us at any hour, day or night. We were always able to reach him and he replied to questions quickly. Paul knows his stuff. He kept us up to date with all the real estate rules and regulations. It truly was a pleasure to work with him and I would recommend him to others. You always knew Paul had your best interest at heart. He never made us feel like it was a business deal, instead it was an exciting experience.

Paul was everything we could have wished for in an agent. We switched to him after not having success with another agent. Paul created an aggressive plan for selling our house quickly which created lots of interest and traffic to our property. The goal was ultimately to sell the house but he never lost sight of what our needs and expectations were. Our selling process was stressful because we had to relocate out of state. He walked us through every step of selling, from listing to closing. He was amazing with keeping not only us informed, but our representatives as well. He was quick to respond with any feedback he received from viewings and answered any and all of our questions promptly. Paul went above and beyond our expectations and we were very happy to work with him. We would definitely recommend him to anyone looking for an agent.

Paul is what all realtors should be. He is a true professional, patient...always down to earth and very easy to talk to. Paul really listens to what you want as a home buyer and even if you don't know what you want he helps you sort through that process until you do know, then he helps you find just the right home...no matter how long that takes. I know he will have return business from this family. S Barsamian Boylston, Ma

Paul was very professional thought my searching and buying process. He took the time to explain pros and cons of each property. He was very patient with me as it was an almost 3 year process and there was never a questions about Paul being there. He is a very trustworthy realtor who is well versed in all different situations. Also Paul has one of the best teams assembled from Paul to Bethany levin for the mortgage and last Steve germani my lawyer. The combination of the 3 people above made my first house a complete stress free and enjoyable process. I will be refering everyone to Paul Murphy and zip reality. Thank you for having people like Paul work for you.

He listened to what I was saying I needed and wanted in a home and pointed me in the correct direction until we finally found the home I just purchased. He is very personable and I felt comfortable with him right away. I will be recommending him to anyone I know who will be looking to purchase/sell their home! Thanks so much Paul!!

We had a very good relationship with Paul and consider him a friend. While searching for our new home he showed us the exact type of houses that we requested. He scheduled visits within one or two days. He was very knowledgeable about problems we should look for and noticed many pluses and cons of which we were unaware. As far as selling our other house Paul made several good suggestions which we think helped to sell it even though the market was extremely poor. Altogether we are very satisfied with Paul's service and we wish him and his family well. Christine and Jacques Travers P.S Unlike the many workers, movers, lawyers and others who had appointments with us Paul was always on time. That is perhaps a small thing but we appreciated it very much.

My husband and I began searching for a home in the area and had no idea where to start. We found a house we thought we liked, and contacted the listing agent, Paul. It turns out the home was completely wrong for us. We left disappointed, but very pleased with the service provided by Paul. We asked him to help us find the right home. After a long search and visiting the same homes multiple times, we found the right home. Throughout the entire process my husband and I came to rely on Paul for his knowledge and candid advice. I cannot say enough how satisfied we were with him. He was prompt with returning calls and emails, he did everything in his power to be available on short notice. He went above and beyond, and took finding the right home for us personally. I do not have one complaint, and I feel great knowing that people like Paul still exist.

Paul is not only a top notch real estate professional, he is one of the best overall professionals I've had the opportunity to work with. Paul brings all the core competencies a buyer benefits from - local market insight, the ability to deliver keen insight into a given properties pros and cons, great advice in terms of valuation and subsequent bids. Most importantly, Paul invested the time to truly understand our priorities and align the search with our ultimate goal. We cast a broad net at the outset, Paul's patience and professionalism enabled us to refine our criteria and ultimately find the home of our dreams. Working with Paul delivered an outstanding outcome for us while also leaving an incredibly positive feeling about the overall process. We provide the highest recommendation of Paul to anyone seeking to purchase a new home.

Paul was an unbelievable realtor. I will start by saying he was very patient with us and whenever I requested a house to look at he responded extremely quick. He was always willing to help us and give us advice as we are first time homebuyers and continually asked of his opinion. The best thing about Paul is his knowledge of not only the real estate market but issues that could arise with a house in the future and any technical term that needed to be explained to us. I cant say enough good things about Paul and have already recommended him to our friends because he made this process so easy. Thank you Paul for being patient with us and helping us along the way. We could not have made this purchase without your knowledge and expertise and will be recommending you to anyone else that we know who is buying a house.

Paul was a huge help to us as first time home buyers. His practical knowledge of home construction and repair was invaluable during our search for a house. Paul did everything one would expect a good agent to do, and more. He consistently went above and beyond the call of duty to make sure we had everything we needed and got all our many questions answered. We got the feeling through working with Paul that he is a genuinely nice guy, who really cared about helping us find the perfect home. It feels good to have someone you can trust working for you when making one of the biggest investments of your life. We would, and plan to, highly recommend Paul and ZipRealty to everyone we know looking to buy or sell property. We feel our experience could not have been more positive, and we look forward to working with Paul again in the future.

Paul is an amazing realtor. He took calls at all hours of the day, every day of the week. He never stopped working for us. Buying a house can be very stressful, he helped alleviate much of that stress because of his dedication to us. He worked hard to try to understand what we were looking for so he could assist us with finding a house that suited our needs. We were able to find a house that i did not think we'd be able to find for the price. I could not be happier with Paul. I will use him again (if i ever need it), and i am already recommending him to my friends and co-workers.

Paul Murphy was absolutely outstanding from our first phone call all the way through closing on our dream home. As first time home buyers, we had a lot of questions and Paul's knowledge, experience and patience were absolutely invaluable. Perhaps most importantly, Paul was always there for us. From the worried midnight emails about mortgages to the last-minute showing request on a Saturday night, Paul always came through. We could tell he had our best interests at heart. We had been working with a large New England realty company, and after going through 4 of their realtors (and not caring for any of them) we dropped them. We were recommended to ZipRealty from a friend who had bought a house through them outside of Boston. We called Paul for the first time 36 hours before we came to town from out of state, and he made time in his schedule for us, and arranged for us to see every house on our wishlist on short notice, including the 7pm Saturday request for a Sunday morning showing that is now our dream home. He helped us find not just our house, but also our town, our mortgage and our lawyer. He was with us from start to finish, and we would recommend him to anyone buying a home in Massachusetts.

We were first time home buyers and had no clue how the whole process worked at all, not to mention we were buying a house from a bank, but Paul made everything clear when he spoke with us, Paul is a very honest and straight forward realitor and will tell you how things might work before they happen and is usually right. We enjoyed Paul's very friendly personality and the way he was very accomidating no matter what time we called or how many times we called in one day. Honsetly we dident know if Paul ever went home! it seems as though he woks 24/7. We would strongly recomend Paul to family and friends that are buying because it dosen't get better than what i've seen. -Bill & Ashley Williams

A true testiment of Paul's service is that we will be recommending his service to all of our friends. We are young buyers and have many friends in the market for houses in the next couple years. We would HIGHLY recommend Paul. He never pressured us, was overly flexible and patient. No question was a bad question and was usually very reachable at all hours of the day. Paul never made us feel pressured to work with him either and was very honest. We knew after a few meetings with Paul that we would buy our house with him. We hope if we ever sell 21 Christina, Paul would still be in the market as our list agent!

Paul was simply amazing. He took the time to get to know us, our desires, and our capabilities for home improvement. This allowed him to help direct our search to the properties that would suit our needs, help fulfill our dreams, and satisfy our eagerness to truly make A house OUR HOME. Beyond that, Paul was patient with us during the walks, allowing us to take as much time as we needed... and being equally patient when we took just a few moments to look around inside a house and say "This is not for us." He was always supportive of our decisions, and was an incredible resource for us as a consultant. His own experience in rennovation and restoration allowed him to look at properties with the same eye toward "potential" as Stephen and I. Finally, during his long career in real estate, Paul has cultivated many working relationships with lawyers, mortgage professionals, inspectors, and other extremely useful individuals. By working with Paul, we were able to quickly and easily step into a ready-made group of highly skilled professionals who made our purchase as stress-free and pleasurable as possible. I have already reccomended Paul to friends who are beginning their search for their perfect home, and I would happily extend that reccomendation to any of Zip Realty's customers. Paul helped us through every step of finding our dream home. And for that, we will be forever grateful.

I would recommend Paul Murphy to anyone either buying or selling property. He was at all times completely professional,and made the entire process comfortable for me. He knows the local real estate market and people well, and was able to recommend several contractors for me to choose from on the work I needed to do on the property I was buying. He was flexible about meeting times and places, and I was totally satisfied with my experience. I recommend Paul Murphy and Zip Realty to everyone!

Our agent Paul Murphy was wonderful. I cannot say enough good things about him. He would answer all of my calls immediately and would make sure to get back to me within minutes with any additional information. He was also extremely well informed, not only about real estate, but also home inspections and general overall knowledge of the entire homebuying process. This was invaluable to us as first time homebuyers. I will be recommending Paul to all of my friends and family looking to buy or sell homes in Mass.

Paul Murphy was able to answer or find answers to any of our questions and he was very knowledgable about what to look for when showing a house. He didn't just care about "making a sale", he wanted to help find us a perfect fit. He was also an excellent advocate to have at the closing table. I recommend Paul to my friends and family when I hear that someone is looking for a house. He's a great asset to Zip Realty!

Paul was a pleasure to work with. He was there for us all the time and went above and beyond our expextations. We had never sold a house before and he understood our situation. From the first second we knew we wanted him as our agent. He kept us informed and let us know the process ahead of time so we were not blindsided. He gave us great suggestions. I would recommend him to anyone who is looking to sell or buy a house. Again he did a superb job and I am just sad not to be talking to him anymore. In addition to keeping us informed he had great suggestions on house improvements and gave us a great reference to a realtor lawyer. We were very happy with Neil Cohen the realtor lawyer too. I just can't say enough about Paul he was really fantastic. Without him I dont think the house would have sold as fast as it did. Great Agent and great person!

Paul was great. Examples of some of the "above and beyond" things were meeting me at the house on a number of occasions, giving me great referrals for the attorney as well as providing insight into what was going on during the process that I couldn't see and coaching me with asking the right questions to my mortgage broker. Additionally, he also was very patient with me and dealt with any of my "mood swings" very well. He even came down to the lawyers office at 9:30 PM as I was signing papers just to make sure it went smooth and there were more questions. I can't say enough about the service and professionalism Paul showed every step of the way.

He is very knowledeable about houses, which was a big reason why I picked him. He gave us a lot of good information. I was also very impressed at the closing, he made sure everything went the way it should. He definately looked out for us. He is an agent I will definately recommend. As a matter of fact, my husband already did.

Not only did he porvide expert advice but he drove to my husband's work in Boston at 9 at night to retrieve P&S sigantures so they would reach the lawyers in tinme and then drove to Stoneham to meet me when we didn't have enough copies with our signatures. We would definately use Paul again and would recommend him to anyone buying or selling a house.

We purchased a new home and did not expect to ever need follow-up services from our agent. Unfortunately, there were some warranty issues that did arise and we needed our agent on several occasions to assist us in seeking redress from the builder of our home. We were extremely pleased with the promptness and thoroughness of our agent, Paul Murphy, in responding to our needs even after the sale was completed and the commission had been paid. We were a bit uncomfortable having to ask for fixes, but our Zip agent assured us that we were entitled to these corrections under our new home warranty, and he made the necessary contacts to assure warranty compliance and followed up regularly to make sure that our needs were being met. We were and are extremely pleased.

First, some background: My wife and I were first time home buyers who entered the market with more than a little bit of trepidation, and decided to try working with a buyer's agent. We had used the Zip website because of its combination of ease of use and the powerful tools available on it. It was by pure luck that we ended up with Paul Murphy as a Zip Agent. During our early buying process (we began nearly a year ago), we talked and interacted with a number of agents on both sides of the table. We actually began first working with Sherri Goldstein, who is no longer with Zip, and when she left she referred us to Paul. She gave him a glowing recommendation, and we decided to give Paul a try. And we're ecstatic that we did. Paul's patience, sincerity, and experience were all incredibly helpful to us as we went through the home buying process. Paul was helpful not only in pointing out aspects of the home that we weren't looking for, but in clarifying the things that we WERE looking at. Paul has a unique ability to place himself in the situation of his clients, and to help show how a house might "evolve" over the years. It's not always easy to look at a home as a living entity; Paul was able to share this vision with us, which helped us to see what a home COULD be, and not simply what it currently WAS. In terms of the buying process itself, Paul was always available at any hour (and there were some crazy hours!) to give us a fair and honest opinion on something, to provide a level-headed third party view on a situation, or even to talk us off of a ledge. When we didn't get the first home that we bid on and were determined to push on, Paul was the first person to suggest that the best way to approach the situation was to take a step back from the home buying process. That's the last advice to expect to hear from your agent, but it was exactly the right advice for us at the time. The other part of the equation in purchasing a home that no one explains to you is the sheer volume of people involved. Paul acted as more than our buyer's agent, he acted as a "air traffic controller" for all of our contacts. He always had recommendations for the various people that we needed, and were always impressed with the people to whom he referred us, including our home inspector. And even when we went with someone else (such as for our mortgage and our lawyer), he worked very well with them. In closing, we simply want to say this: Paul is a credit to your company, and he is a credit to your entire industry. He made the home buying process enjoyable and significantly less daunting for us, and we are very grateful that we lucked into meeting him. We will recommend Paul to anyone we know purchasing a home (and in fact already have), and have nothing but extraordinary praise for him and his abilities.

Paul was excellent. This was my first homebuying experience. He carefully guided me through what was a good home for my needs and what was not. The only issue I had with Paul is that he was encouraging me not to put into writing the changes that needed to be made in the P&S, however, the attorney made sure this was done. Also, after the sale I've been having trouble with getting something in the contract handled that was part of the P&S and I haven't heard from him since closing. Basically, as soon the closing took place, he was gone...but I still will highly recommend Paul. He even went as far as finding me a free washer & dryer from one of his other closings.
