Michelle Murphy


Michelle’s passion for real estate was born from a love of the land. She spent her formative years working at her parents’ tractor dealership and a friend’s farm stand, cultivating a deep respect for growth, generous communities and our planet’s delicate natural resources. As an adult, Michelle geeked out on the daily as a high school history teacher and later, a middle school principal. We’re pretty sure that’s why she’s so good at solving problems…and European Renaissance trivia. During her 23 years in education, Michelle also worked as a Realtor and she is thrilled to be back. Now she’s at Spaces, and it’s music to our ears (especially when Michelle belts out some Bonnie Raitt).
