With over 20 years of real estate experience, she is quite simply one of the most respected and sought-after agents in the industry. Her endless testimonials reflect the same thread – every deal is stress-free and pleasurable, every outcome a success, buyers and sellers recommend her without hesitation for her undivided personal attention.
Christy puts people at ease. She is a skilled and graceful negotiator who makes those on both sides of the transaction feel comfortable, anticipating any issues before they arise so she can minimize any impact. She combines her deep market knowledge with an innate ability to understand the style and individual needs of each and every client. She knows exactly how to price a home for a competitive listing and how to stage a home for optimum appeal.
Christy is experienced in all property types and sizes, from luxury waterfront residences, to period homes resplendent in historical detail, to new construction, condos, co-ops and townhouses. She enjoys working with reputable local builders to develop custom homes that reflect exquisite craftmanship and design, or assisting in stunning renovations that transform and increase property value.
Christy brings a strong business acumen to her real estate career, stemming from a degree in business administration, followed by almost ten years’ working in the financial industry with Merrill Lynch.
Having raised three daughters in the Rye/Harrison community who attended both public and private schools, Christy not only has the inside line on almost every surrounding neighborhood, but often on finding homes that are not yet on the market. She is part of the fabric of the community, actively involved in the Rye YMCA and the Carver Center. Christy shares her deep attachment to the area with her clients: “Rye has a very special character, it’s one of the best places to live – a charming and close-knit town, great schools, a picturesque waterfront. It is easy to explain why our community is always in demand!”

My family worked with Christy Murphy to settle my brother’s estate by selling his house in Rye Brook, NY. Without a doubt Sotheby’s is very fortunate to have an agent of Christy’s caliber representing them. In our many years of dealing with real estate agents she is by far the best professional agent, as well as the kindest, and most understanding we have met. She was always available to receive a phone call, responded promptly, never got agitated, and was exceptionally competent. Christy handled all transactions with the utmost decorum and helped guide us through the process of finding a buyer and selling the house in a way that was extraordinary. She was a pleasure to work with and I would recommend Christy, without hesitation, to anyone I know.B.I.
