      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.

      The closing for our home sale was the beginning of January 2022. The whole process went very smoothly, mainly due to Karina Murphy. Her knowledge of real estate of Cortland and surrounding areas is excellent. She was very helpful in the myriad issues of selling our home such as selling furniture, recommended repairs, and cosmetic improvements. My wife and I highly recommend Karina.

      Karina Murphy was heaven sent. We purchased our 1st home with Karina as our real estate agent. She went way above & beyond to help us & we are truly grateful for everything she has done for us. If we decide to purchase any more property Karina is the only person we will have as our agent. I can't put into words how grateful we are that we met her. If you're looking for an agent who is willing to roll up their sleeves & go the extra mile, she is the agent you're looking for.


      Karina was awesome to work with! She was right by my side through the whole process. From the initial walk through of my home, to taking the pictures and loading them onto the website. The selling process was made much simpler with her. I highly recommend Karina and Yaman Real Estate.


      Overall great experience, very easy and kept us well informed. Could have not had a better experience!

      We found Karina when we walked into an open house for one of her listed properties and knew that we wanted to work with her to help us find our first home! Karina was so wonderful to work with! Throughout the entire process, she was quick to answer our questions, help guide us through this challenging market and we loved our whole experience (even in this crazy market). Thank you Karina for all that you did!
