Kimberly Murphree

     
(512) 751-7907

Kimberly Murphree’s life philosophy is simple, yet incredibly effective. In everything she does, she strives for three things: have fun, work hard and be good to people. To ask her, it’s a direct reflection of her influential upbringing. Born and raised in Corpus Christi, Kimberly was taught the importance of treating others like she’d want to be treated and a belief that she could do anything and be anything if she was willing to work hard for it. After graduating from high school, Kimberly moved to Austin to attend the University of Texas, where she earned her bachelor’s degree in business. She landed a job at a marketing company in town which turned out to be less than exciting and in 1995 embarked on her next adventure as a licensed real estate agent in Austin Texas. Her love of people, expert guidance and the ability to meet people where they are will give you the insight and confidence you need to make smart real estate decisions and move through your real estate endeavors with ease. Kimberly has a heart for animals and the great outdoors, fitness and a true passion for travel and excitement.

Testimonials

Kimberly’s work ethic and personal touch is quite impressive. She helped us buy our first home in 2005 and sell the same home in 2014. She had no problem remembering us from our first encounter. We had so many questions, and she answered all of them without making us feel stupid. She is very driven, smart, and personable. She will work day and night until your goals are reached. I have recommended her to all my friends and family.

– Celeste and Justin C.


In the Spring of 2012, having made the decision to move from Sacramento to Austin, I took a one week exploratory trip and spent several days with Kimberly Murphree based on recommendations from family members. I gave Kimberly some difficult parameters and I told Kimberly that I would not be offended if she chose to bow out of what appeared to be an impossible challenge. Her response was, “I am here till the end. I am not a quitter! It is with gratitude and admiration that I recommend this lady to help folks explore the possibilities and realize their goals in search for a home in Austin. She is a true professional.

– Raymond Z.


Kimberly has been the most patient person through our continually changing plans in real estate. She has been there for us every step, even when she was on vacation. Not only is she dedicated she is fun and easy going. I could not possibly even imagine working with another agent. After you are done with your real estate choice you will walk away with a friend!

– Luna and John B.


I could not have asked for a more knowledgeable agent. Kimberly is professional, thorough, and tough in negotiations when needed! She got the job done and we are very happy in our home!

– Steve and April S.


I have used Kimberly as my realtor both as a buyer and a seller. Her approach immediately put me at ease. She takes the time to engage you and explains the process in terms that are easily understood. For sellers, I found that the marketing techniques that Kimberly uses were very effective. I have no doubt that the networking and manner of presentation of my home, resulted in multiple offers within a couple of days of listing.

– Cole W.


We found Kimberly to be a great help with buying our condo in Austin. Being foreign nationals and new in the US we were expecting a few challenges with buying somewhere to live, but Kimberly made it easy. She provided helpful advice about the different neighbourhoods, was always available to answer our questions, was able to fit in around my hectic work schedule and would drive me out to visit condos as we don’t own a car. We also found her to be really friendly and enjoyed chatting about things to see and do in Austin. Thanks to her the whole process was really positive and we ended up getting a great condo. We highly recommend her. Cheers, Ross & Natalie

“Kimberly, you are truly genuine. My philosophy is a person’s word is their greatest asset. You gave us your word that you would do your best in finding us a home and you did just that. We appreciate your efforts and admire your professionalism.”

– Brian and Tara


“I have to admit when Hank suggested using a “Broker” I was curious but still had misgivings. You immediately blew my doubts out of the water!!! We really felt like we had an ally, rather than another sales person, fervently working for us. You have been such a blessing and we thank you for everything you have done, everything.”

– Hank and Jennifer


“Kimberly, I want to personally thank you for your positive attitude, expertise and consistency. Your “Can Do” attitude regarding every “Curve Ball” thrown my direction serve as a shining example of the very best in a real estate agent.”

– Elva


“Kimberly, it has been a pleasure working with you. Your sincere interest in our situation was very refreshing and most appreciated. You came highly recommended to us by another satisfied customer and be assured we will do the same.”

– Don and Susan
