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.


The closing for our home sale was at the beginning of January 2022. The whole process went very smoothly, mainly due to Karina Murphy. Her knowledge of the 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.

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!

I had a large piece of land to sell and was recommended two real estate agents in the area. Neither of these two guys showed the interest I thought would be required to do the job. They didn’t return phone calls, etc. I decided to contacted Yaman real estate as they had the listing for this property when I bought it years before. I called one day at lunch time and just happened to land on Karina’s desk. From the get go, it was clear she was a person that would be willing to hustle and go the extra mile to try and sell my property. She always called when she said she would, and always returned calls. She asked my expectations of the sale, and when I explained them she suggested an asking price. She went on to say she knew of people that could be interested in my property and was very positive. We got an acceptable offer four days after the listing was posted. She provided me with a recommendation for legal representation and helped me navigate all the paperwork thru the closing. I just so happened that things took a while to develop and she was very active in facilitating the closing. As you can probably tell from the above, I cannot say enough about Karina’s skill and expertise. Highly recommended.


We loved Karina! She really knew her stuff and was great at her job. We really felt like she knew exactly what we were looking for and did everything she could to get us that! She was personable, listened to us, and was easy to get a hold of. We had an amazing experience and would recommend her to anyone.


Karina was recommended by a friend of mine who was very satisfied with her results. I was selling my Dad’s house and my expectations were low but she helped me sell the house in about six weeks and we got the price we were looking for also. She is clearly experienced and very capable.

A few choruses of Leonard Cohen’s Hallelujah … the Adirondacks in spring … a frisky, dancing river … I’m trying to express my gratitude and astonishment over Karina Murphy’s work ethic and plug-away-at-it optimism in the middle of a global pandemic. She’s become my friend and my family’s angel. A few more of her and the world would be as right as rain.
