Moving Families to the Beach. 30A.
Janet Murphy has lived in three countries, eight states and many homes throughout her life. Born in New York, she grew up just outside Detroit, after spending time in Ireland and France.
She graduated from the University and Tennessee and eventually moved to Atlanta, where she lived for 25 years. After having three children in 33 months, she began looking for a career that offered her the flexibility her family needed. In 2003, she earned her real estate license and she and her husband bought their first home on 30A during a weekend visit to a friend’s home. Eight years later, they moved to the Emerald Coast full-time.
Janet focuses her business on the east end of 30A, but helps move families to the beach from Destin to Panama City Beach. Ninety percent of her business is personal referrals from people she says “know me, love me and trust me.” She said she is dependable and thorough; asks the important questions; and, is able to connect her clients to local resources and amenities thanks to the personal network she has cultivated over the years. At her previous brokerage, she was given the Life Award, a recognition as a favorite agent among her colleagues.
In her free time, Janet and her husband, Kevin, who’s from Scotland, like to travel and consider themselves foodies. They spend time walking on the beach, riding bikes and doting on their three college-age children. She enjoys entertaining others, hosting Thanksgiving for up to 60 people every year. She also gardens, cooks and likes caring for her own home. Janet has previously been involved at St. Rita’s Catholic Church, Seaside School and the Special Olympics.
Janet is an advocate for seniors, caring for older adults in Atlanta and in her neighborhood here at the beach. She is the president of The Whiskey Project, a group she started to support her husband’s passion.
