After graduating from Hamilton College in 1980, Patrick Murphy began his commercial real estate career 36 years ago.  Much of the business has changed in that time; however, Mr. Murphy’s enthusiasm and energy for the business has not.

Since 1990 Mr. Murphy was a part of the CBRE family of companies which included Insignia/ESG.  Prior to his promotion to Vice Chairman in 2008, he was the Executive Managing Director for the CBRE NY Tri-State suburban offices running a $100 million business with all lines and over 1000 people reporting to him.  The experience prepared Patrick to become the strategist and business advisor that he is today.

Mr. Murphy is an industry veteran who admits to having fallen in love with commercial real estate at the inception of his career. That love with which he began is still with him today.  Staying focused on the clients’ needs, as well as being open to feedback, is what allows Mr. Murphy to consistently operate at a peak performance.
