Buying or selling a home is one of the most important decisions we make, and I am dedicated to providing my clients with the best service possible. As your agent, you will find me to be knowledgeable, attentive and responsive. I will do the research for you and find the answers to your questions. I will listen to your needs and always make your best interests my priority. You will find me to be an expert negotiator and an efficient communicator. Although the process of buying a home can seem complicated, I strive to make it understandable and enjoyable.
Originally from the Rochester area, I migrated to Cortland over 20 years ago. I have made it my home, where I work, play and raise my son. I hold an advanced degree in Recreation and Leisure Studies, and I owned a business on Main Street for more than a decade. Over the years I have become familiar with this beautiful region, discovering the abundance of community and natural resources it offers to residents and visitors alike. I am an active member of the community, holding positions on several boards and participating in many organizations. On any given day you may find me singing in local choirs, hiking in Lime Hollow, kayaking down the Tioughnioga River, or running and biking down the beautiful country roads that are the hallmark of our region.

Karina was amazing! She was attentive, easy to talk to, and communicated every step of the way. She made it easy to buy our first home.
Karina has been absolutely terrific. She has consistently gone above and beyond providing excellent service. She is always professional, courteous, kind, patient, helpful, and knowledgeable. I feel that she is always looking out for my best interest. She is well-connected with other professionals in the area. This has proved vital to my needs because I am not from the area. I would recommend her to my family and friends because I have tremendous confidence in her.
Karina was very helpful and very informative during the whole process. She stayed in contact and was always checking in on us. Always very pleasant. We would recommend her to anyone, she is awesome.
Karina did an amazing job finding our new home. Karina handled everything from 1200 miles away from us! She did a video walk thru of several homes for us, and gave us excellent advice throughout the process, keeping the process moving and getting us to closing with no problems whatsoever. She cheerfully and professionally provided us with excellent service and found the perfect home for my wife and me. Five stars across the board!
We've been looking for a house for a while and have gone through quite a few Realtors and Karina was hands down the best we've had she made everything easy and helped us immensely as first-time home buyers
Karina was a pleasure to work with. She was helpful, knowledgeable, responsive, and very personable. She made the process as easy as possible for us and we were very grateful to have her on our side.
Karina is such a kind and caring person. Always in communication and ready to answer any question we had.
We do not have enough words to praise and thank Miss Murphy. She was extremely knowledgeable, kind, and patient with us even though it took us more than three years to find a house. She knows the market she understood exactly what we need and she was the one to find the house we bought. It was as if she knew better than us what we wanted. We were very lucky to have Karina as our agent. We saw hundreds of houses and Karina was so patient kind and thoughtful. This is the third house we bought and non of our past agents could be compared with Karina.
We appreciate all of Karina’s efforts with our buy and sell. She was honest and had our family’s best interest in mind. She communicated with us and collaborated with attorneys and lenders when they stalled on communication with us. She had our back and got us into our new home just before the baby was due, which was a huge relief. I would 100% recommend her to others. She’s kind and down to earth. Made the process much less stressful.
I met Karina years ago when she was helping sell a friend's home. Karina stuck by us the whole way. She was always available to answer questions when we had them.
