I was lucky when my cousin John advised me to call Reid about Real Estate while in Sarasota… What I look for in an agent is someone Knowledgeable  and Patient .. Someone who is willing to stay within my  guidelines and can make the experience as comfortable as possible … It was a pleasure spending 2 great days with Reid … When the listings ran out he had great connections to see other properties a phone call away ….

People love him and Trust him and you can now put my name on that list.

Not to sound cliché but Reid is one in 1 million. He stuck with us patiently through our house hunting “process” looking at condos, houses on the bay, and many houses on the barrier islands.

Our “personal process” made it a long exhausting search but working with Reid made it an adventure. He never lost his enthusiasm, we never felt pressured into buying a house or condo. As a matter of fact, Reid pointed out issues with some of the properties we liked which could cause potential problems for our family or lifestyle.

His honesty and integrity are beyond compare.

With Reid by our side we found our house and couldn’t be happier. His follow through after the closing went above and beyond signing the papers. Reid has been immensly helpful recommending many vendors and professionals to help make the new house into our home…

In the end it was bittersweet because we enjoyed spending time with Reid we will miss looking at houses with him, however now Reid is more than a Realtor, he is a friend and we have our beautiful new home.

I have known Reid Murphy for almost 25 years. During that time I have done seven transactions with Reid as my agent. Every one was profitable for me and the process for each was very smooth.

Reid has the rare ability to combine a down home personality with a fine tuned sense of value and the ability to get deals done! He is the agent I will be using for anything I do on Longboat Key.

I worked with Realtor Reid Murphy for more than a year as my wife and I searched for our beachfront dream home on Longboat Key.

Although we had long loved the area, we needed someone who intimately knew the community and its residents. And we needed someone who would provide not only the best real estate services available, but also informed recommendations on all the professional services we would need for our new home.

Reid was patient, caring and detailed-oriented. Thanks to his tireless – yet not pushy efforts – we found the perfect getaway. A thorough communicator, he stayed in constant contact throughout the process and continues to afterwards.

I recommend him very highly if you are buying or selling a home.

I only wish I had another house to buy so I could retain Reid once again.

In looking for a knowledgeable real estate professional to help sell our condo in Longboat Key, Reid Murphy of Developers Realty was recommended by a friend in Sarasota.

We met with Reid and immediately felt comfortable with him and his approach to real estate. He showed himself to be exceptionally knowledgeable of his profession and knew the Longboat Key market inside and out. His level of professionalism was noteworthy yet we were tremendously impressed by his willingness to “bend” to make a deal come together. He actually made the process fun and we, at no time, felt we were caving on anything we felt we needed in order to either sell or later buy.

Reid’s philosophy led to the sale of our condo in Longboat Key in a three day period to a fully qualified buyer who met all points that we felt we needed for a successful transaction. This was such a positive experience we moved forward with Reid in locating a new home for us. Hearing what we wanted, Reid immediately knew what to show us. Bingo! It could not have been any more perfect for us and the sale moved forward with Reid doing what he does so well – negotiating on his client’s behalf.

Thank you Reid. You made the process of selling/buying of real estate a positive experience for us.

We met Reid as a neighbor here in Longboat Key 20 years ago and have had numerous real estate transactions exclusively with him. We appreciate his unique laid-back style, his depth of knowledge, and his steady line of communication.

Reid was able to handle all of our transactions, even the most challenging ones, and deliver a smooth closing from start to finish in a very efficient and seamless manner, whether as a buyer or seller.

We would strongly recommend Reid to anyone who is looking for a home due to his warm and relaxed demeanor, his wide expanse of knowledge of the local market inventory and the uniqueness of living on a barrier island.

When it comes time for our next real estate transaction, it will be with Reid, of course!

We have had the pleasure of having Reid represent us on multiple different real estate transactions. He has always been very professional and has allowed us to work through a process where he brought creativity and understanding to the table for us. We are always happy with the outcome of the deals and have referred Reid to family and friends for their real estate needs.

We have known Reid for 4 years now with nothing but the highest regard for him. His knowledge of the markets, execution and follow up of a transaction in real estate are excellent. What he says you can bank on. No second guessing him!

We have found his “ after the deal “ service has been most valuable to us. He knows everyone and everything in our area. Not only that, he has become a good friend. My association goes beyond Reid to his associate whom I have known for 13 years. Reid has been a valuable asset to him as well.

If and when I decide to buy addition investment properties in the Longboat area, Reid will be agent.

In the past 3 years, Reid Murphy has handled 4 real estate for us. Each transaction was handled with the utmost professionalism. Reid communicated with us continuously, throughout each process. He arranged repairs and updates and kept us informed on the progess. Our last transaction, with Reid, was the purchase of our current home. The home was not even on the market, but Reid, knowing that it would be perfect for us, worked tirelessly to make the prior owner and us, both very satisfied. Reid continues to keep in touch with us to make sure that all is well in our new home and has referred us to top-notch service people. Overall, Reid Murphy is exceptional in every aspect of his profession.
Wow !! Many thanks!

My wife Kris and I initially met Reid Murphy of Developers Realty 9 years ago when we purchased our home on the north end of Long Boat Key. He came highly recommended from a longtime close friend who had great results with him.

We found him to be personal, easy-going, and honest while being a true expert on the local real estate market. Since then, we have recommended him to countless sellers and buyers and he has continued to provide stellar results.

His outgoing personality allows him to be likable with all types of people. Reid’s extensive network ensures you the outcome that you are looking for.

I highly recommend Reid for all your real estate needs.
