Doug Murphy


Doug Murphy was born in Sparta N.C., and raised in the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains of N.C., which still serves as his homebase and residence. Doug attended Appalachian State University where he earned a Bachelors of Science Education Degree which propelled him into the career of teaching and coaching at the high school level. Interestingly, Doug, his wife Janna, and his two beautiful daughters Callie and Rylee, also started a successful Christmas Tree Farm and cattle operation which allowed Doug the opportunity to value and appreciate land and property as a pleasure as well as an investment.

Later, Doug attended Grand Canyon University where he earned a Master’s of Education Administration Degree which accentuated his passion for relationship building and desire to help others achieve their goals in the field of education. Having taught and coached for twenty plus years, Doug sought Real Estate sales as an avenue to couple his desire to help others, establish relationships, and play a positive role in helping others regarding their real estate needs. Doug has displayed these traits not only within the educational profession but also as an elected official, successful business owner, and church Deacon. On a personal note, Doug is married to his beautiful wife Janna and has two lovely daughters Callie Grace and Rylee Michele as well as two rambunctious dogs Kate and Oliver.

I love every aspect of this industry. I love talking and laughing with my clients on a regular basis as we search for the home or the buyer that meets that particular person’s need!
