Hi—My name is Mary Murphy, and because my family started investing in Estes Park more than 60 years ago, I have a fairly unique understanding of this unique and fluid market. I also have an appreciation for the value of thoroughness and a very positive attitude.

Living in the Estes Valley, there is so much to smile about every day. When I heard my first elk bugle in RMNP over 40 years ago, I knew I would have to live in this magical place someday; our family moved up here full time over 20 years ago. 

Our three children now live all across the country, but wherever they travel, we feel good knowing they have their values rooted in this small town of friendly, caring people. Roots are important; we’re fortunate enough to be able to live in the house my husband’s grandparents called home for over 40 years. (They moved from Missouri in 1954 and owned a western shop on Elkhorn for many years.) I know and love this special valley. It’s been wonderful to me and so many others.

As I introduce myself to you here, broadly speaking, I specialize in three things:
1. Listening to and matching my clients’ dreams with their financial realities and goals as I help guide them through their process of exploring the most efficient and responsible way to get where they want to go. 
2. Constantly analyzing this unique and ever-evolving market, blending the long-view with current market conditions and trends and then finding opportunities for my clients that others may overlook—whether they are buyers or sellers—while using my experience to help ensure my clients’ transactions happen to their satisfaction.
3. Explaining every step of the buying and/or selling process, in whatever ways and to whatever degree of detail is most helpful.

I continue to take classes to ensure I am providing you the most current and beneficial tools I possibly can as I strive to help you reach your goals.

Remember how easy it was to fall in love with Estes Park? My goal is to make the realization of your real estate goals as close to feeling like that as possible.

Lastly, one of many things I am thankful for is the number of relationships with satisfied clients that have blossomed into true and lasting friendships. If you’d like to hear what a few of the people I’ve been able to help in the past have to say, just click here.

I would love the opportunity to hear your goals and explain how my experience in this valley—along with the regional, national and international resources of the entire Coldwell Banker network—can benefit you.

I wish you the best, no matter who* you chose to help you meet your goals.

* I know it’s supposed to be “whom,” but that sounds too stuffy. :)

A Word About My Green and EcoBroker Training and Designations 
I have added a focus on environmental sustainability and energy efficiency to my educational pursuits for a wide variety of reasons. For instance, if you’re looking for your ideal home, I can apply my knowledge in this very important arena to suggest ways to make any of the homes you are considering more energy efficient and, therefore, a more cost-efficient investment in the long-run. Together, we can explore affordable options that can greatly improve the long-term value of your home. And, if you’re selling, as more and more buyers are voicing how important these issues are to them, slight, reasonably-priced improvements can definitely make your home more appealing and help it rise above your competition.
