Tabitha Murphy
Weichert Realtors-nickel Group
About Tabitha

Adam Murphy and Tabitha Murphy lead The ATM Team, a group of three full-time REALTORS® and a Closing Coordinator who provide unparalleled client care. Buying or selling a home can be a very emotional experience, and clients can lose sight of long-term financial implications. The ATM Team helps clients focus on making good investment decisions that will benefit them for years to come. For sellers, the team uses creative and aggressive marketing strategies as well as expert staging and negotiating to get the best price for each property. With buyers, this means guiding them step by step, pointing out resale pros and cons of each home, making sure they understand all their financing options, negotiating fiercely on their behalf, and providing qualified referrals to the best lenders, attorneys and contractors. Tabitha is an Accredited Staging Professional, who helps sellers show their properties to their fullest potential. At her last brokerage, she was honored as the Sales Leader for 2013 & 2014 with the "Top of the Hill" Award, which is a reflection of her dedication to serving her clients. Adam has over 15 years of construction experience; he has owned and managed over 20 rental properties and flipped 6 homes. With this background he is able to critically evaluate a home’s strengths and potential problems, so buyers can make informed decisions. The ATM Team also has incredible support staff. Dwan Johnson, a licensed REALTOR®, is the team’s Client Care Coordinator. Dwan works closely with buyers to answer their questions and meet their needs every step of the way. Crystal Rodriguez, the team’s Closing Coordinator, stays in constant communication with sellers and manages the many details associated with the closing process. Adam and Tabitha love to encourage dreams and goals in others. They share a dedication to helping young people, and they both work with their church’s youth group. Tabitha also volunteers at middle schools and high schools, where she talks to students about how to cultivate healthy relationships. Adam is an instrument rated pilot who, after years of dreaming of taking flight, earned his pilot’s license in 2009. He would love to someday obtain his instructors certification so he can help others fulfill their flight dreams, too.

What should you look for when interviewing a real estate agent in New York?
When you sell a house, your real estate agent becomes your business partner, financial advisor, and emotional support system. It’s crucial to partner with someone you trust, so make sure you’re looking for an agent who can answer all of your questions with confidence during the interview. During this process, you want to get to know the agent’s business and find out how well they know the area. You’re listening for things that signal experience, expertise in your community, and workload. Selling a home takes an enormous amount of work, so you need an agent who’s got a plan for prep, pricing, and marketing and who is ready to roll up their sleeves to get the job done.

How important is it to hire a top real estate agent in New York?
Our data shows that the top 5% of listing agents sell homes for as much as (+9%) more than the average real estate agent. A great agent makes a difference when you buy a house, too: We’ve found that the top 5% of buyer's agents on average save their clients 2.5% more on their home purchase. So, whether you’re in the market to find your dream home or sell your house at a great price, the right agent matters. We encourage you to connect with a top real estate agent if you’re buying or selling a home in New York, NY.
Read more
When is the right time to hire a real estate agent in New York?
The best window to contact an agent to sell your home is anywhere from three to six months in advance of your list date. When you start the search for an agent several months before hitting the market, there’s plenty of time to find the best agent, make key renovations, and market your home effectively, all of which are essential steps in selling your home for a great price. You can also hire an agent based on the best time to sell in New York to take advantage of seasonal and cyclical trends in the market. The right time to hire a real estate agent depends on the temperature of the housing market. For example, the best time to sell in New York is in May. And since it takes around 3 months to close on a home, you should list in February. We recommend that you hire a real estate agent as soon as you're thinking of selling your home. Generally speaking, that's anywhere from 3 to 6 months prior to your desired move date.
