About Shaun Murphy, Compass REALTOR

If you are thinking of buying or selling in the Washington DC metro area, I would love the opportunity to work with you. I pride myself in maintaining close contact with my clients and paying close attention to details.  I love working with different people and I still get excited about each and every transaction.

I'm an educated professional with more than 14 years of experience in this market, and I think I've seen almost every trick and turn of the industry already. I've also had intimate experience with properties in most DC metro neighborhoods, making me an invaluable person to talk to when it comes to relocation to the DC metro area. I'm confident that I can save you not only tens of thousands of dollars, but a great deal of time and emotional energy as well. 

You may have noticed that many real estate agents take a transactional approach to sales—identifying clients, closing the deal, and then moving on to the next one. I choose not to work that way because I believe you deserve more from the professional you decide to work with. That is why I work by referral.

Since my primary source of new business is referrals from people who know and trust me, I don’t have to spend precious time prospecting. I can dedicate myself fully to the activities that benefit you most, and always deliver truly exceptional service. I know that I must earn your future referrals, so I aim to exceed your expectations. I have a vested interest in making sure that you are completely satisfied at the end of our transaction together.

My job is to represent and protect your interests from start to finish. I'll take the time to find out what you really need most from me as a professional real estate agent.  This is usually far more than just helping you sell your home or finding a new one; it means informing and advising you, protecting you, and looking for the best opportunities for a smooth transaction and happy result. If you would like to know anything about my services, or if you'd like to hear about the local market from a human voice, please contact me at your convenience.

Several of my clients are employed by the government, including many who are moving to the area because of transfers.  I often receive referrals from past clients within The United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO), the FBI, the United States Air Force, the Department of Defense (DOD), and many other government employees. I have helped numerous clients who commute to the Pentagon.
