My Committment to You!

I pride myself with knowledge of the real estate business. This knowledge coupled with my years of experience enables me to help my clients achieve the goal of owning their own home. When I am building a new home I always tell my clients that I am not the most expensive builder nor am I the least expensive builder, but the quality in the homes I build is second to none.

"We had never built a house before. There are a lot of decisions to be made. We didn't know where to start, or where to stop. Jay's experience was evident in helping us design and build our beautiful new home. He was able to lay out all of our options and make recommendations to best suit our needs. We are very pleased with J. Murphy Homes."

"Cynthia and I want to thank J. Murphy Homes for the beautiful home that was built for us. We had built a home twice before and this home building was, by far, the most pleasurable experience. We appreciate the understanding of the special needs we had for this home that were accounted for. J. Murphy Homes incorporated those requirements flawlessly into a beautiful and well-crafted home."
