She loves the mountains, the Town of Murphy, the local lakes and rivers and she is anxious to share that love with you.

Murphy is a town in Cherokee County, North Carolina, United States. The population was 1,568 at the 2000 census. It is the county seat of Cherokee County and is the westernmost county seat in North Carolina and closer to the capitals of six other states (Georgia, Alabama, Tennessee, South Carolina, Kentucky, and West Virginia) than to Raleigh, the capital of North Carolina. Murphy was named for North Carolina politician Archibald Murphey.

The town is located at the confluence of the Hiwassee River and Valley River.

The site of Murphy, along the Hiwassee River, was known to the Cherokee as Tlanusi-yi (the Leech Place), because of a legend about a giant leech named Tlanusi that lived in the river there.

The Trading Path (later called the "Unicoi Turnpike") passed by the future site of Murphy, connecting the Cherokee lands east of the mountains with the "Overhill Towns" of Tennessee.

In 1836, during the Cherokee removal known as the Trail of Tears, the United States army built Fort Butler in what is today Murphy. Fort Butler acted as the main collection point for Cherokee east of the mountains. From Fort Butler the Cherokee were taken over the mountains on the Unicoi Turnpike to the main internment camps at Fort Cass (today Charleston, Tennessee). Today the Unicoi Turnpike is known as Joe Brown Highway. The Cherokee County Historical Museum located in Murphy provides information about the Trail of Tears.

The Davis's Murphy NC
During our summer trip to Murphy we decided to look for a home and contacted Lisa. She spent several long days showing us property in various locations. Not only did Lisa find properties that were much to our liking, after we found a place she went above and beyond to assure us that we would get the property. Lisa helped in locating financing, individuals to do minor construction work, and introduced us to others in the community. Lisa will be a friend and neighbor whom we respect and look forward to spending time with after our move. We would highly recommend using Lisa if you are looking for a home in Murphy or the surrounding area. She takes the word professional to the next level.

Jill and Andy Ruoss Murphy NC
What impressed me the most about Lisa is that she is dedicated to doing her best for her clients. She really looked out for our best interests, making sure there were no hidden problems that we might come across after making an offer on a place, that we couldn't get out of without losing money. What would I say to a friend if I were to recommend Lisa to them? If she can't find it for you, it's not out there. I recommend her to everyone. .
