Tell Us Your Story

"I just had to stop and thank you for the wonderful job Jade and Danny did on marketing and selling my home.

Everything from placing my home on the market with fliers, online brochures, videos and internet property listings to attract perspective buyers quickly was handled very professionally. You then performed flawlessly negotiating with perspective buyers to secure a final offer quickly that was actually 10k more than what were initially planning to ask. And for your finale you orchestrated an escrow process that closed by my count in 14 days, phenomenal! I always knew that I have been blessed in my life. I now count connecting with you at this time in my life as one of those blessings. Thank you very much for a job extremely well done." Bill, 2015

"Being a first time home buyer I was a very nervous.

I lost a lot of sleep the first few weeks which is natural after being a renter for almost 40 years. However, working with Jade and Danny turned out to be the best decision on my part (after deciding to give up renting).Jade and Danny are very patient, answered all of my questions and listened to what I was looking for. We worked closely together and I found my ideal home that I am moving to this week, I cannot recommend them enough. They were both there for me anytime I needed them." Chuck, 2017

Very professional, courteous, and personable!

Its always a pleasure to work with Danny. Very admirable work ethic.

"Jade Beardsley has been a tremendous help with the short sale of our home.

In the beginning stages Jade helped us through the process of reviewing our options and helping us determine our best choice. Ultimately we made the difficult decision to short sell our home. One of the biggest factors in making this decision was feeling that we had a team we could trust with Jade and her associates. Jade excelled at setting the price point appropriately so that it would move quickly, as well as presenting the property within the MLS system so agents and clients would want to see the property. The listing and showing stages went very smoothly and we received offers fairly quickly. Her knowledge of the short sale process was very useful during the offer negotiations as she quickly removed any contingencies she knew the banks would not accept. For the home owner dealing with the bank can be the most stressful part. This stress was eliminated for us because Jade has people on her team dedicated to working through the approval process with the banks. They are extremely knowledgeable with the short sale process and deal with the high volume of phone calls and document submissions required to get the short sale approved by the mortgage holders. I can’t thank Jade enough for helping me through one of the most difficult decisions of my life, and helping our family move on to the next stage of our lives."  Brian, 2011

Danny is a top notch Realtor!

He always strives to provide the best advice, marketing and negotiation services to his clients. I always welcome the opportunity to do business with Danny and Associates.

"Jade and Danny did an EXCELLENT job selling our home.

They were spot-on with their advise and knowledge of the neighborhood, market conditions, etc. We put together a plan and sold the house in relatively short order! Even escrow went super smoothly. We couldn't be more satisfied with Jade and Danny." Les, 2014

Thank you all for the wonderful efforts to make this home purchase and loan funding possible for our family.

It has been a bumpy road to get to this point. We are overwhelmed with the professionalism, character and integrity of each of you. You have all played a significant role in making this possible and we are sincerely appreciative and grateful for these efforts. Danny and Jade, your guidance, kindness, and persistence have kept us in this process. We know that no other agents would have been able to provide us with the assistance and information to make this possible. Thank you for taking us through the insane California home buying process and sticking by us, even when it seemed insurmountable. I can see why you have partnered with Hajir, as your professional styles complement one another nicely. We wish you each continued success in this challenging economy and we will happily refer anyone we know and become friends or colleagues with as we embark on our new journey living in Southern California. Thank you for making home buying possible for us! You are all welcome at our home anytime. If there is ever anything we can do to assist any of you please let us know. Client:The Folans, 2011

"The dynamic duo of Jade and Danny helped me get our home sold in record time with multiple offers.

By following their advice to invest a small amount in key improvements of the home yielded us big returns. In fact, we got more money for the home than expected! Not only that, but they recommended and managed the contractors for me, which was a huge help!" Lisa, 2014

"Jade and Danny helped us every step of the way.

They advised us how to prepare the house for sale. They prepared the collateral material; everything was the highest quality including a brochure with a floor plan and a YouTube walk through video which could be activated using the mobile phone tag scan on the ‘For Sale’ sign. Within four days they had over 130 people visit the property. In a week we had three offers. In under two weeks we were in Escrow and 30 days later, with great management form Jade and Danny the sale was complete. If you are looking for a sales team that 100% understands the sales process and gives complete commitment; then Jade and Danny are the team you need." Bill & Carol, 2012

"Jade and Danny were recommend to us by our attorney as experts in real estate with special skills in short sales.

They patiently waited a long time for us to pursue a loan modification and when it was no longer an option, they professionally and sympathetically handled a very rushed short sale and all of the negotiations that came up due to special circumstances along the way. They managed our short sale with extreme efficiency in spite of the hurdles and got it closed just in time! We have been very pleased with their exceptional knowledge of the process and their compassion for our situation and would highly recommend them to anyone with any real estate needs! They are the best!!!" Rick & Cindi, 2012

Danny is a true pro.

Extremely knowledgeable and hard working. Very easy to work with and very honest.

Jeff Moran

Thank you, Danny!

We just purchased our home in Orange County after our move from Calgary, Canada. Danny guided us during the entire process that was totally new to us and answered our questions in a timely manner. He quickly understood our needs and taste and delivered to our expectations. His extended team can even give you financial and insurance advice. He is even helping us with some small fixes we wanted to perform by introducing us to his trusted contractors! We really recommend Danny and his Team for your house hunting needs. Carlos & Nathalie, 2018 

"Jade and Danny did an excellent job selling our Belmont Estates home in Orange.

We had interviewed many of the local agents, but Jade and Danny came highly recommended to us from our neighbors. We were very impressed by how they handled every step of the listing and escrow process. We felt our best interests were always important to them, and they always took the time to review and explain all of the contracts, and next steps with us. Finally, Jade and Danny had the most comprehensive and highest quality marketing strategy of all the agents we had interviewed. Jade and Danny were hard working, they over delivered on what they promised, they were ethical, skilled on all fronts, and we would highly recommend them to any of our neighbors or anyone planning to sell their home." Pat & John, 2013

I recently completed a transaction with Danny Murphy, where he was the buyer’s agent.

  From start to finish the process was fair, well organized, smooth and a real pleasure.  Danny’s actions were very professional at all times.  Danny acted in his Client’s best interest from the start, with the presentation of his Client’s offer, in which he provided all necessary information without my having to ask for missed information, including a substantiation of the price they came in at.  He really negotiated to get his Client’s the best deal possible, and was both fair and considerate of my Client.  Furthermore, Danny facilitated his Clients in obtaining all the inspections and pre-purchase information on the costs of future alterations to the home.  Danny has a solid understanding of the contracts and the escrow process, which helped ensure that our combined efforts lead to a smooth, on-time close for both of our Clients.  Danny was prompt in returning my calls and in turning around all of the necessary paperwork involved in the transaction.  In summary, Danny is an ethical, hard working agent, who always made the best interests of his Client a priority, while being a skilled agent that made completing a transaction an enjoyable process.   Sheila Whistler, REALTOR, e-PRO

"Jade & Danny recently helped my Family sell a property.

They were extremely professional throughout the process, always communicating the appropriate level of information to us. They coached us as to the appropriate improvements the property needed to sell for top dollar without having to spendunnecessary funds. The marketing strategy they implemented was top notch, from the print materials to their extensive use of social media and other online mediums. Their efforts, combined with the suggested improvements to the property allowed us to set a record sale price at that time. They worked diligently to ensure that the Buyer's appraisal was not an issue, and we closed in a timely manner. We were very impressed by Jade & Danny, and we would highly recommend their services to any Seller or Buyer." Again THANK YOU!!!  Dennis, 2016

"Amazing energy.

Very diligent and responsive. One aspect I always measure is  the ability to execute the marketing plan - Jade and Danny did an outstanding job. Our sell was a “relocation sell” so it was a little bit more involved, but we felt at peace during the whole process because our realtors had a team to assist us with any need. Great job guys!" Ivan & Irina, 2013

I am writing to you to praise the wonderful service and hard work that your FirstTeam agents Danny Murphy and Jade Bearsley provided me throughout my last real estate experience.

In my lifetime in United States, I have participated in approximately 9 real estate transactions. I have met many outstanding agents, but certainly Danny Murphy really deserves a "standing ovation". He is not only one the most hard working agent (I know that there were times that we would stay up until midnight to go through the documents).  Danny has won our heart for being our true "friend" and for establishing a "special relationship" with his client. In this difficult world of real estate, his devotion and competency had positioned him amongst the best in the industry. Jade and Danny definitely understood my emotional and financial needs and through the winding road with many obstacles, both of them had helped me realize my future goal and dream! ( I LOVE MY NEW HOME !!) Again, thank you for giving me these 2 beautiful agents. They are definitely an asset to your office and company. I would recommend them to anybody for their real estate needs!!!   Huong Nguyen Listed/sold my home and found my replacement home

"I was nervous to start the whole process of looking for and buying a house for my first time and really had no idea what I was in for.

I had in my head a very complicated, long process that was going to be tedious and overwhelming. I called Danny and he immediately got me on track. He made the  whole process very easy and was great about working with our schedules to view homes and was always keeping in contact. Danny gave me a great home buying experience and I couldn’t be happier." Mike, 2018

"Jade and Danny recently helped us sell our house and we had a great experience with them!

They jumped at the opportunity to work with us even though we were asking them to put our house on the market during the slow season over the holidays, and the fact that the home had fallen our of escrow once already. Despite the challenge, they did great marketing the property and quickly found us a buyer. We were especially impressed with all of the online presence that they utilized. When it came to knowledge about the process, Jade and Danny were second to none and were able to answer all of our questions quickly - demonstrating their years of experience. Jade and Danny even went above and beyond the call of duty to make sure that our deal stayed on track when things got a little rocky in escrow.  Thanks again guys!" Lee & Kacy, 2014

"This is LONG overdue.

Danny helped me buy a home that took a year to close and all along the way he was engaged, professional, and always there when something was needed. With the home being a short sale Danny negotiated with the bank on a couple occasions to bring the price down to market value. Unfortunately however, the seller who sold me the home had enlisted some agents that were either unqualified or unmotivated but Danny kept such a persistent and professional attitude that I firmly believe that had it been another agent there would be a good chance I wouldn't be living where I am today. In many instances Danny had to do other individuals tasks or they wouldn't get done in a timely manner or in some instances they probably wouldn't get done at all. Ultimately we ended up closing and can’t thank Danny enough for all the effort he put into it while all along the way keeping me informed and being there for any questions I had. I would not hesitate recommending him to anybody and I actually endorse him to anybody I come across looking for an agent." Mike, 2013

"I really cannot thank you enough for all the help you provided in securing a home for me and my family.

I was confident you were the right choice since you had been recommended to me by at least four or five of my friends and colleagues who gushed about how good you were. Boy did they undersell your effectiveness. Despite a very short deadline, fairly demanding requirements and my complete lack of knowledge of the area you were able to guide me through the process so that it was absolutely painless. Ours being one of five offers being considered there is no doubt in my mind that we would not have gotten that property without your help. I felt we were constantly one step ahead of everyone and I am certain that your idea of writing a personal message to the owners is what clinched the deal. But what I appreciate the most is that even after having found us a great home in a great neighborhood you still were there to assist me through the process. Having someone with your experience present during the inspection, pointing things out to the property manager has helped solve a lot of future headaches. From finding a home, to home insurance to appliances you have been helpful every step of the way.  I look forward to the next home I rent or buy and I know exactly who I will turn to when that time comes." Matthew, 2012

“Jade and Danny did a fantastic job helping me find and negotiate the purchase of our Mid Century Modern home.

It is a very specific style of home and a niche that required a specific expertise and networking to find. They were skilled in locating the right properties that matched my search, and ensured that I was always ahead of the competition to see them. They did their homework to know the background of the properties I was most interested in, including building rapport with the listing agent, and helping me establish value quickly so I was able to make timely and “aggressively acceptable” offers in a competitive market. Jade and Danny came highly recommended from many of my colleagues, and I can without question highly recommend their real estate services.” Andy, 2014

Danny was recommended to us by numerous coworkers who all had great experiences with him.

 Though this was our first home-buying experience, working with Danny immediately put us at ease. We didn't know what to look for in a house or in a neighborhood, what questions to ask, and Danny walked us  through all of that. He helped us figure out what we wanted and where we wanted it, after starting with a search that included condos, townhomes, and houses, and ran all the way from North Long Beach down to Mission Viejo.  And he was always 100% willing to take us to places that we wanted to see, even if he *knew* they were not right for us, because we thought maybe they would work. All we can say about that is that Danny is a very patient man. We wholeheartedly recommend Danny to anyone looking for a home in Orange/LA counties.  He's a rock star. " Tim & Mike, 2018

Danny is an awesome Realtor and all around great guy!

I would hire Danny all day long to sell my house. He's professional, knowledgeable and caring.

Danelle Stroble

"Danny and his team were a great fit right from the start.

From the first meeting, I felt he was very organized, attentive to details, came in prepared and with a great game plan. Throughout the whole process, he always followed up with me, stayed within our timeline and truly made the whole process seamless. I'd highly recommend Danny Murphy for anyone wanting to sell or buy in Orange County! Thanks again for you help!" Rupali, 2018

"Amazingly diligent!

Knew every step of the process inside and out. Worked not only directly with the sellers agent, but went above and beyond to move the transaction through. Our agent (Danny) had our interests in mind every step of the way. Could not say better things about him and First Team!" Chad, 2013

"Danny and Jade guided me through a short sale on my property.

Their team was proactive, process knowledgable and ethical throughout the transaction. They conducted themselves in a professional manner and advised each step of the way. I would recommend Danny and Jade's services to everyone." Scott, 2012

"Jade and Danny did a fantastic job selling my home at a great value!

They advised me on the best upgrades to do to my home to get the most value out of the improvements. They did a first class job marketing the property, with professional photography, high quality brochures and the house was listed everywhere you could imagine online. They were effective communicators from start to finish. I always knew they protected my best interests. They are exceptionally qualified to help anyone sell or buy a home. I highly recommend them!" Martha, 2015

Danny is an amazing real estate agent!

He was my seller and buyer agent. Not only is he very personable he is also very skilled in all aspects of real estate from making an offer to closing. He provided us with excellent service in what became a very complicated and difficult transaction. We felt very protected from start to finish with Danny by our side. Without him I would never have accomplished selling my home on Brynn Ct, Huntington Beach while at the same time buying my forever home. He kept all parts of the transactions going smoothly and took the stress out of one of the most stressful transactions a person can do. We have learned that all real estate agents are NOT created equally. We would recommend Danny Murphy to anyone who is interested in buying/selling a home. You will not regret it! He and the First Team crew that work alongside him are extraordinary professionals. Sean, 2019

"Jade & Danny were great helping me find my first place.

As this was my first time looking on the market, Jade & Danny were there when I had any questions and was prompt to follow up. They guided me through the process and was even willing to take calls late and show me properties during my tight lunch break. Jade and  Danny have local knowledge that I am super impressed that they know the ins and outs of Orange County. I would recommend Jade and Danny to anyone who is looking to find their dream home." Alan, 2016

Danny and associates are an excellent real estate team to work with .

A great team of Realtors who put their clients first. I can’t wait to business with them again!

Matt Kaestner

Just excellent!

If you want an expert in the Huntington Beach market, there's no better choice! I highly recommend Danny Murphy and his team!

Mlissa Swift

I strongly recommend Danny to anyone looking for a Realtor.

From start to finish my buying experience with Danny was top notch. It started with him patiently asking me the necessary questions to fully understand my buying needs. Next, his local knowledge of the real estate market proved invaluable when developing an effective strategy to view properties. When it came time to make an offer, he effectively communicated the analytics supporting the offer price and helped position me as a competitive buyer. I would sum up my buying experience with Danny as efficient, comprehensive, and seamless. As an added bonus, he even helped me move in my couch. May 21, 2010 Top qualities: Great Results , Personable , Expert Mark Davis, CFA hired Danny as a Real Estate Agent in 2010  

"My family and I have lived on the east coast for over 40 years and relocating to California could've been a stressful process, however thanks to Danny and Jade, the experience was exciting, fun and smooth - all adjectives I wouldn't have thought I'd use to describe buying a home.

Having run very large businesses throughout my career, I have developed high expectations of those I deal with, and as a result am rarely impressed. Danny and Jade are probably the most friendly and professional people I have dealt with in my business and personal life - these are not exaggerations by any means. From the beginning to the end, they focused on understanding and getting to know each member of my family, to hear about needs, preferences and interests. Each family member, including children, felt completely respected and part of the buying process. Danny and Jade's market knowledge and ability to understand our preferences, allowed them to quickly target to our preferences, while also making suggestions to things they thought we should be open to. Their approach is refreshing and rare. Danny's ability to help us search, buy and close on a home from nearly 3,000 miles away, really impressed me - his relationships with other agents, insurance providers and contractors provided to be invaluable throughout the process. Very rarely do I come across people in a business situation that I develop trust with so quickly, and that I would want to be friends with outside of the transaction. I cannot say enough about Danny and Jade - not only are they great people, they are the best at what they do! We were very lucky to have worked with them and I have no doubt that others would say the same." Moneesh & Kavita, 2015

"Jade and Danny worked great together as a team to sell our house in a time when the market was fairly flat.

They had a well thought out, multi-pronged marketing plan that ultimately found the buyer. Fantastic work!" Craig & Dolly, 2015

Danny's expertise brings so much to the table.

His knowledge of the market and his ability to match that knowledge to your needs is spot on. He has the highest level of integrity and truly represents your interests. I relocated from outside the state and he helped me navigate the ins and outs of  this highly comepetitive market. I highly recommend Danny. Jonathan, 2018

"We recently got a job transfer and had to relocate.

We decided to sell our home. We had the good fortune of interviewing Danny. He nailed it! Danny Is very knowledgeable and professional.  He sold our home quickly and handled all the details. He called with daily updates. Working with Danny was great.  He knows the ins and out of real estate. If you need to sell your house Danny will help you get it done. He is very detailed oriented.  Nothing gets overlooked. If you want someone to sell your home, I highly Recommend Danny and his Team." J. Hainsworth, 2018

We are writing this letter to express our most sincere appreciation for the exceptional service Danny Murphy provided during the process of selling our home in Redondo Beach in the Summer of 2010.

  As out of state residents, we were especially concerned about the logistics involved in preparing our property for sale and facilitating a sale from a distance.  We interviewed a number of top real estate agents in the area and were particularly impressed with Danny.  We spent a great deal of time discussing the challenges we would face in the current volatile real estate market and Danny's particular strong points in best marketing our property in this difficult environment; namely Danny's extensive experience with investment real estate, his access to a substantial network of resources to successfully market our property, his willingness to work with us and necessary service providers, and his determination to work hard to get the job done.  As this home was an investment property for us, we had a different set of circumstances driving our decision to sell than many homeowners, and Danny was able to understand and appreciate our objectives and goals.   Throughout the process Danny was thoroughly prepared, highly organized, communicative, diligent and energetic.  He worked every angle to market our property in the most advantageous and visible means possible, and always kept us informed of the activity and buyer feedback.  He effectively re-defined what could have been perceived negatives to the property, principally the fact that it was not an upgraded home, and convincingly made buyers see the benefit in such a situation, namely the ability to buy a property for significantly less than comparables and upgrade the home exactly as they would like it. To say we were extremely pleased with our experience with Danny would be an understatement.  We would highly recommend you consider Danny Murphy as your exclusive real estate agent when considering any real estate transaction, whether you are an investor or a buyer/seller of your personal residence.  Sincerely, Margaret and Randy Schouten

Danny is always so helpful and knowledgeable with anything!

He is very ethical and definitely cares about his clients. I would definitely recommend Danny to any of my friends and family to use when purchasing or selling a home. He will go above and beyond to help his clients and make sure they are satisfied with the end result!

"Danny was great to work with!

He walked me through the entire short sale process step by step and made sure all of my questions were answered. He was in contact with me through the entire process, making sure I had all paperwork complete and ready for the bank when it was needed. Before starting this process I was concerned with how long it would take and how much I would have to do. Danny and his team truly took the stress off my shoulders, making sure the process was smooth and as quick as possible. I highly recommend working with Danny and the SoCal Life Team!" Amanda, 2012

I cannot thank you guys enough!

When I first met you both, I was extremely concerned since I was in the situation that so many others have found themselves in these days. It was embarrassing to admit, but I needed help and you both assured me that while the process might be painful, but in the end you guys could help. Two months later, my short sale went through and I have a new place for my family. You both were extremely professional, contentious, hard working, and intelligent. I feel extremely blessed that I was introduced to you both and hope one day I can work with you guys again. I do want to say that you were wrong about something. . .the process was NOT painful. You made it so simple and for that, I thank you. Client: Steve, 2011

I would like to thank Danny and Jade for their services.

You were very diligent in locating me the perfect home and location within my budget. I realize it must have been frustrating working with me the last six months, but you never gave up on me and you were always pleasant and courteous. You and Jade are a great team. First Team especially Danny and Jade I will recommend without a doubt to all my friends. Client: Ed, 2011

"Danny started the whole process professionally.

He took the time and sat down with me to go over my criteria and preferences. From there he started to provide proper listings according to my interest. He was available, pleasant to work with and very knowlegable. He sometimes, points out the flaws and problem of the house before you notice them & that shows he is on your side (and not just after selling another house.) I would definitely recommed Danny to friends as a great consultant in real estate business." Arash, 2012

I had an excellent experience with Danny Murphy.

He helped me find the home in my dream neighborhood. Danny was very prompt in returning emails and phone calls of all my questions. He is very knowledgeable in analyzing the property value. I was a first time home buyer, the process was new to me, but I got the support and explanations I needed from him. Danny was very professional, he made sure I was aware of the process and comfortable with everything going on. I am very happy with the assistance I received from Danny and would recommend him to my friends. Thank you Danny.   Nicole  

I want to write this recommendation for Danny Murphy in regards to his expertise and his ability to exceed my expectations in regards to selling my property.

My sale was far from an easy one and involved a short sale which was very unnerving for me since I was not familiar with the process or with what to expect. Danny managed all steps of the process beautifully. He generated multiple offers for my property, allowing him to negotiate the best possible outcome for me. He managed all calls and handled all negotiations, even after the close of escrow. The experience was such a stress reliever and I can’t thank Danny enough for all of the extra work he did for me. His constant communication throughout the process kept me completely informed and allowed me to focus on my work and other aspects of my life, all while knowing my property sale was completely handled. He truly had my best interest in mind and really was my Real Estate "Advocate". May 24, 2010 Top qualities: Great Results, Personable, Expert A.E., hired Danny as a Real Estate Agent in 2010  

Besides being a knowledgeable & active agent of OC real estate, Danny is a bona fide member of the community.

His charitable contributions to local organizations speak to his desire to invest personally in the people he serves professionally. He recently contributed to our fundraising efforts to send the Diocesan Children's Choir to Rome in 2018. As part of the music ministry for the Catholic Diocese of Orange, this youth group is comprised of singers ages 9-14 from parishes throughout the entire county. They've been invited as a choir to sing for the Pope at the Vatican next year. Danny generously & graciously supported our grown-ups-only "casino night" event hosted by the Knights of Columbus, proceeds from which will directly benefit the children's choir and their upcoming Italian journey. There really are no words to express our gratitude. Without these fundraising efforts, many of the children would otherwise miss out on this once in a lifetime endeavor. So I can only conclude by telling Danny, very simply ... THANK YOU!

Adi Delfin

Danny is an exceptional realtor - his local expertise and passion for real estate is what sets him apart from others .

I would recommend Danny to anyone who is looking for a great experience with buying/selling a home.

Brian Liberto

Over the years I had many pleasant interactions with Danny, whether it was when he was hosting our annual neighborhood garage sale, or just a friendly conversation at my front door.

  As a man well into his twilight years, Danny always asked me how my sickly Wife was doing and how I was doing.  What Danny never asked me, was if I wanted to sell my home.  I appreciated that.  So when the time came for me to consider changing my living situation, I felt very comfortable calling Danny, as I knew I could trust him, and he has always been a person of his word. Danny answered all of my questions, and he in some ways challenged me as to whether I should even sell my home of nearly 60 years. I could tell that Danny wanted what was right and best for me, even if that meant not selling my home. Well, I did decide to sell my home, and Danny and his Team did exactly what they said they would do every step of the way.  They found me a buyer that paid very good money for my home, Danny helped me through all of the paperwork, and the escrow process went quite smooth.  I would recommend Danny and his Team's services to anyone looking to buy or sell real estate. - Bob Loving 5-24-17

“Jade and Danny are a cut above any other realtors I have used, both in the US or abroad.

They are full-time, energetic, honest, can-do, will-do, knowledgeable, competitive, business-savvy, highly professional – and winners. They helped me acquire the property of my choice, stuck with me when things got difficult, and solved all the – sometimes considerable – issues for me as they arose. And the best thing is – together they are a great team. You get two-for-one, which means more attention, more knowledge and more ideas. Out of my experience, I highly recommended and highly rate them.” Paul, 2011

Danny made time to accommodate my busy schedule.

During the period of three weekends Danny showed me approximately 30 homes in different areas. It gave me a better understanding of neighborhoods and markets. Danny was always very responsive, professional and is always willing to take the extra steps necessary to insure that all parties are satisfied and had a positive experience. Danny is providing and setting up meetings with, property management, repairs, home staging, etc. This has been very helpful with my schedule and distance from the property.

Philip Boghosian Living Trust

"We have been working with Danny for a year looking for the right property in Huntington Beach.

We needed to sell our condo in another state first and Danny was, patient and helpful on both ends of the deal. He provided a lot of insight and eventually found the perfect property. He gave great advice on negotiating the deal and over saw the closing for us. I have bought a lot of properties over the years and Danny and his staff made this the easiest close I have ever had. And if that wasn’t enough, we are new to the area and he went above and beyond assisting us with contractors and services you wouldn’t expect from an agent. He not only helps you with your deal he stays with you all the way through the deal and beyond. Danny is more than a Real Estate agent, he is a friend. I would strongly recommend him if you are thinking about making a move, he will take great care of you. We could not be happier." Charlie & Patti, 2018

Danny was great to work with.

Knows his facts and performs as promised​.

Bob Caustin

Danny is an amazing agent he is very knowledgeable about the market and a skilled negotiator.

Lucas Smith

"Jade and Danny have been our realtors for selling two homes and buying one.

If you want to get things done quickly and done right you can't go wrong. Throughout the process they are always available and on top of things, and will continue to provide help and support even months after closing. We've recommended them to at least four friends (possibly more) and everyone was very happy with the results. Even when we needed recommendations for a realtor in another city (unfortunately we're moving out of the area) Jade was on top of it and found us a great referral." Jay , 2016

A can’t miss professional with a distinctive local flair!

Jeff Banks

"Danny and Jade, I knew from the start that you both were the best partners for me and you have demonstrated that over and over in the months since we started this adventure.

 I could not have done this without you two, having my back and helping me learn to lean on others! I will miss having you in my life - so please look me up when you come to DC.  We can find a great dinner place in Georgetown!  All the best to you and your families." Linda, 2016

He was the perfect representative for us. He always looking out for our best interest while gently guiding us through a process we had always feared to overwhelming. We appreciate his patience and honesty when we would call him with questions that might seem irrelevant and/or redundant. We are thankful for his ability to always be available to answer our calls. Thank you Danny!!!


I have used the services of Danny Murphy & Associates three times in the last 4 years, once to sell a home, once to rent a home and most recently to buy a home.

On each occasion he excelled in every way, always displaying the height of professionalism and skill as a realtor by guiding and helping me in negotiating the best deals available. He is honest, ethical and a pleasure to work with always going the extra mile to ensure satisfaction. I have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending him for any realty activity whether selling, buying or renting. Ian, 2018

"Jade & Danny did an outstanding job helping us buy a home.

 They guided us through the process and were always available to answer questions and gave us excellent advice. Their experience and expertise was evident as we got into the offer phase when they helped us negotiate the deal. They have a ready team of solid specialists they have worked with to provide the inspections, appraisal, title, and escrow. As we worked through the escrow their understanding of the seller's side allowed for a very smooth process. After we completed the escrow, they have been very helpful identifying resources such as a handyman to maintain our house. We give a strong positive recommendation to work with Jade & Danny and the SoCalLifeTeam to buy your house." Colin & Sharon, 2015

"I am so grateful for the stellar service Danny Murphy provided to my family and I in the recent sale of our home in Irvine.

In the face of depressed home prices, bargain hunting buyers, and a distressed economy, Danny successfully got us from “for sale” to “sold” in only 88 days, and for only slightly less than our asking price. Danny is more than a realtor, he is a competent advisor. Every step of the way, Danny exceeded our expectations – from shooting a virtual tour of our home and sharing it on YouTube, to proactively communicating with the buyer’s agent, inspector, multiple service providers, and us to ensure we stayed on track, and even picking up a modem we inadvertently left at the house after the new owners moved in. We look forward to working with Danny for our future real estate needs and recommend him without hesitation." 

Albert & Teresa

Jade was a trooper and great support in our recent escrow.

She provided extra effort on a tight schedule and we are grateful. The two of you are affirmation that great talent exists in every industry and sometimes the timing is perfect when you find talented people. We struck gold with you both and look forward to continuing a relationship for years to come. Client: Chris and Stacy, 2011

"Danny goes above and beyond to service his clients.

When Rachel and I recently bought our home, not only was Danny able to guide us through contracts and such, but helped provide contractor recommendations and assisted us with many of our planning needs. Danny worked in corporate finance for years and this experience has translated to how he serves his customer and understands the ins and outs of real estate as he is one of the Top Agents in California. I would highly recommend Danny as a complete professional to anyone looking for a home, investment property, etc." Drew & Rachel, 2017

"When I first met Jade & Danny was around 4th of July several years ago.

They were walking down our street placing the US Flag on everyone's lawn. I was impressed that they took the time to do it themselves. They both stopped to introduce themselves and since then the two of them have been familiar faces to everyone in the neighborhood. From their Annual Neighborhood Garage Sale, (Dropping off donuts, lots of donuts) to their ongoing involvement in the community and local Youth Sports, they are an excellent team and I'm thankful to have met them both! Thanks Guys, your the best!" Valerie, 2015

"Working with Jade and Danny is nothing short of spectacular.

They're professional, timely and knowledgable about every aspect of Real Estate in Southern California!" Becca, 2013

Great information Danny !

! I love the videos.You're always breakin' it down... for us. Keep up the great work.

Trisha Rose Wolf

"My husband and I were first-time homebuyers, and, honestly, we really didn't know what to expect and found the prospect of buying a home to be extremely daunting.

Once some friends recommended Jade and Danny to us, however, the process of finding a home became much less overwhelming. We first had a call with Danny, who walked us through the general steps and asked us some preliminary questions. Then, when we were ready to start looking at homes, Jade, at the drop of a hat, set up at least 10 viewings for us in one day. Jade's ability to, from that first day, observe our reactions to different homes and then better gauge what we would or wouldn't like, was impressive and made us feel as though we were in good hands. Having never shopped for a home before, we barely knew our own preferences, and Jade was always so perceptive in helping us clarify what we actually cared about and then finding properties to fit that criteria. Furthermore, we would not have had these moments of clarity were it not for Jade's exceptional flexibility and availability. They really made us feel as though we could text or call them at any time about anything, and could accommodate both of our work schedules with ease. It was a pleasure working with Jade and Danny, and we are so thankful to them for finding us our first home, which we will love and cherish for many years to come." Jon & Jen, 2015

Danny is Mr.

Huntington Beach as far as I'm concerned. Hard working. SUPER knowledgable. No question who I use for Real Estate in Orange County.

Dan Smith

"My wife and I were relocated to SoCal for my work.

Our agent in Northern California researched and found Danny and Jade for us. We had no clue where we wanted to end up living - just knew that Orange County was the area. Danny and Jade were readily available whenever we needed them. We were lucky to have found our ultimate new home during our first weekend of looking. They were incredibly helpful and even helped us find a great financing team, too. I can't thank them enough for their tireless work. They made a very difficult transition as simple and easy as possible! And, they're both great people, too!" Dan & Leann, 2015

"Danny did a fantastic job handling the sale of my home.

I was not able to be in the state during the sale and he handled things like getting the property painted, cleaned, and repairs to get it market ready. It was a very smooth process and we closed in a timely manner with a great price. Danny is a great choice for buying and selling a home in Orange County!" Becca, 2018

"It was a pleasure to work with Danny during my home buying experience.

I already trusted him since I’ve known him for 10 years. He did an excellent job guiding me with professional opinions, but ultimately ensuring I made the final decision. He utilizes the latest technology (which was a tremendous help), but also incorporates good old fashioned face to face communication and concern. He is a great negotiator and will work to benefit his client within the boundaries of honesty and ethics. Danny is always on top of the process and lets you know the details of each step. He takes the time to understand your situation, including style of home, budget, timeframe, etc. He is responsive to questions and concerns you may have.  Once my home was purchased Danny gave me several recommendations of contractors for various services which were helpful. The ones I use have worked out great. In addition, Danny’s partner, Jade, who I hadn’t worked with, or even met, came out to my house to assist or should I say teach me how to select appropriate colors, plus a few other pointers as I was having some improvements done. She was full of great information as well. Both Danny and Jade are knowledgeable, caring professionals and I felt well taken care of. Thanks for the great experience!" Tom, 2012

"Jade was a trooper and great support in our recent escrow.

Chris & Stacy

"Danny did an amazing job helping us find and buy the perfect duplex in East Costa Mesa.

He's a very friendly likable guy and, when he first came to meet us to discuss our plans we were blown away by his knowledge of the area and the research he did on the local markets. He walked us through the process and made everything easy, from focusing on the right places, to putting together a strong offer. He was so good at pitching our offer that the seller accepted our FHA offer over another cash offer for the same amount. Danny communicated with us through the entire process with constant updates and always made himself available to answer any questions. From the offer to escrow we were happy to have him on our side. His attention to the smallest detail made the whole offer and escrow process a breeze. We will definitely ask Danny to help with our next home purchase and would recommend him to anyone."    Eric and Dina, 2012

"I just wanted to say what a great job Danny Murphy and his partner Jade Beardsley did in terms of helping me sell my mom's house.

Because I lived out of town, I really needed their help and they really took care of everything. All of the paperwork was handled quickly and easily and they were able to get offers on this property almost immediately. Danny always made sure to call me and go over every detail so that I understood exactly what was going on at all times. They also helped when it came to packing up boxes of clothing and furniture that needed to be moved and there was really nothing I needed that they couldn't do or help me with. Of course, it was also great that they were able to negotiate a top offer for the house and were able to close escrow as quickly as possible. Danny and his partner made the entire moving experience go as smoothly as I could hope for and I would strongly recommend using Danny, Jade, and their company to anyone who is looking to sell their house. Lastly, I would add that Danny and Jade are both really nice people and it was a pleasure to work with them." Bob K, 2013

"Jade and Danny are OUTSTANDING professionals who fully understand the market ensuring we asked the right price to achieve the aims of getting the price we wanted AND sell quickly.

They are both a pleasure to work with and give their all making the experience/process much less stressful than it usually is. We are pleased to recommend them to anyone wishing to sell, buy or rent a property and can guarantee that you will not be disappointed." Ian & Mary Ann, 2014

"Jade & Danny quickly made us feel very comfortable about our relocation to Southern California.

They provided information about the area and asked us about our desired lifestyle. We were quickly able to narrow down our location and find the perfect home! We love our home and Jade & Danny were great in making sure we paid the right price!" John & Sue, 2015

"I work with a lot of Realtors in my profession and Danny and Jade are at the top of the chart.

As professional as any client could hope for, which is a testament to their high level of success. Keep up the good work!" Ryan, 2013

"Danny is extremely knowledgeable and responsive.

He is incredibly patient and worked with us to find the perfect home. Once we found the home of our dreams, Danny was an expert in helping us negotiate and close the deal. He is very well connected in Orange County and always had resources for us to  tap into. I highly recommend Danny for any and all of your real estate needs." Paul & Pamela, 2018

Danny & Associates are a wealth of knowledge to their clients!

Their exceptional service goes above and beyond. I would highly recommend them if you need Real Estate help!

Lisa Furar

"I reached out to Danny with a unique request about remote assistance with my rental property while being out of the country.

My previous real estate agent left the area while I was out and that put me in a challenging spot.Even though it's not his typical business, Danny provided me with all necessary information, met with my tenants and ultimately resolved my issue. I enjoyed our effective communication, and Danny's attention to my case. I'm very satisfied and looking forward to work with Danny on my future real estate needs!" P. Maisenovich, 2018

I recently closed a transaction where Danny Murphy was the listing agent.

  Prior to my contacting Danny regarding his listing in Northpark, Irvine, I was impressed by the professional and high quality manner in which he marketed his Client’s property.  The YouTube video that Danny produced went well beyond what I see with the small percentage of listings that even have a YouTube presence.  Furthermore, I could find this listing (and other listings that Danny had at the time), on Facebook, LinkedIn, Zillow, etc.  The listing itself on the MLS was accurate, informative and allowed me to present the property accurately to my Client, the Buyer.    In summary, the level of marketing and advertising went well beyond what I am used to seeing in our marketplace.  Finally, from start to finish, the transaction was characterized by professional, succinct, yet pleasant interactions.  Danny communicated very well with his Client, escrow, and me throughout the offer and escrow process.  He had a clear understanding of the contracts, milestones and next steps, he conducted himself in a fair and ethical manner, and we worked well together to accomplish a successful transaction for our Clients. Hajir Nejati RMA, CMP Branch Manager/ Senior Loan Consultant Cell: (949) 702 2292

"In April 2015 our home in Huntington Beach was sold by First Team Real Estate.

Our realtors Jade Beardsley and Danny Murphy were professional, thorough and did everything that they promised. They worked closely with the buyer’s agent to make sure that the transaction went smoothly and any issues that came up were dealt with quickly and efficiently. We have recommended Jade and Danny at First Team Real Estate to our old neighbors, family and friends. We would NOT hesitate to use them in the future. We only wish that they could have helped us in the purchase of our new home out of state." E. B. Gibbs, 2015

Danny your expertise and knowledge of the area along your hard working ethic sets you apart from the competition.

I would highly recommended you if anyone is looking to hire an amazing agent!

Lauri Strain

I recently closed a short sale transaction with Danny.

As many know, a short sale is a long tedious process that requires patience and diligence. Danny did a tremendous job representing his buyer through the process and in addition handled the negotiations with my Team professionally and timely. In this challenging market, he's someone you can trust and count on! Elizabeth Do, Realtor, The Executive Real Estate Group, Inc.

I've bought and sold properties over the past 25 years, and in that time, I'd not met a Realtor who I consider to have "earned" their commission.

 That is until I worked with Danny Murphy.  Danny approached my project with the passion of a successful sports or talent agent.  Amazing preparation, great attention to ensuring he understood what I wanted, and consistent followup in all aspects of the transaction.  I was most impressed with Danny's knowledge of the real estate business, and local market conditions, and his patience in attempting to pass some of this knowledge onto me.   I have no hesitation in recommending Danny for your real estate needs.   David van Toor  

"Danny and Jade did an outstanding job of helping us sell our home quickly and for a higher price than we ever anticipated.

Their expert use of social media played a huge role in our success, and Danny's communication and professionalism was vital as we had already moved out-of-state. My wife and I feel anyone would be extremely fortunate to have the SoCalLife Team represent them in any real estate transaction!" Russ & Sarah, 2013

"Jade and Danny helped my fiance and me navigate the extensive real estate market to buy our first house.

We had many questions throughout the process, but Jade and Danny were always there with a quick response and willing to share their knowledge. Once we decided on our house, the process was smooth and fast. Thank you!" Kelly, 2016

"I really cannot thank you enough for all the help you provided in securing a home for me and my family.

I was confident you were the right choice since you had been recommended to me by at least four or five of my friends and colleagues who gushed about how good you were. Boy did they undersell your effectiveness. Despite a very short deadline, fairly demanding requirements and my complete lack of knowledge of the area you were able to guide me through the process so that it was absolutely painless. Ours being one of five offers being considered there is no doubt in my mind that we would not have gotten that property without your help. I felt we were constantly one step ahead of everyone and I am certain that your idea of writing a personal message to the owners is what clinched the deal.  But what I appreciate the most is that even after having found us a great home in a great neighborhood you still were there to assist me through the process. Having someone with your experience present during the inspection, pointing things out to the property manager has helped solve a lot of future headaches. From finding a home, to home insurance to appliances you have been helpful every step of the way. I look forward to the next home I rent or buy and I know exactly who I will turn to when that time comes." Matthew, 2013

"Jade and Danny successfully negotiated and Short Sold my home in Redondo Beach.

After trying everything I could to save my home, I knew there were no more options… I had to let it go. My situation was very complicated and more difficult than most. There were four liens against the property that had to be settled. The good news is that I knew from the beginning, I was in expert hands with Jade and Danny. I knew the process wouldn’t be easy but I certainly did not realize how much work went into it. They made it as easy and painless as possible. From properly preparing for a short sale, including filling out the appropriate paperwork required by the banks, to marketing the home to attract buyers, on through negotiating the short sale terms with the banks and additional lien holders and managing the escrow with the buyer, Jade and Danny handled it all. They always remained calm, even when challenges arose…and they often did. Jade and Danny are strong communicators, they made me aware of key milestones and requirements of me from the bank, but also not overburdening me with unnecessary details that would only make me worry. They instilled confidence in me that they knew how to handle every step of the process, and that peace of mind was invaluable. In the end, my short sale was completed, and I can move on with my life. I’m grateful to have worked with such a competent team, and I would highly recommend Jade & Danny’s real estate services." Celine, 2013

When I met with Jade and Danny, I could not have been more impressed.

Through every step of the process, I felt like they always had MY best interests at heart. We purchased a bank-owned property, so the process was very complicated (and the seller was sometimes stubborn), and Danny was able to negotiate an INCREDIBLE price (well below the appraised value), as well as get the bank to pay for some repairs (which is almost unheard of!) The property was originally listed at $525,000, and we paid $480,000 (plus a $2,500 repair credit). Danny could not have made us feel more comfortable with our decision - he took care of scheduling all of the inspections, and was present for every step of the way. He took us to see 30 houses, and even though we found our house on our first day of looking, he convinced us to look at maybe 20 more places so we would be *absolutely certain* that we were making the right choice. Danny clearly has a LOT of expertise, and we were very thankful that we chose him and Jade to represent us. We will certainly be going back to them if we ever sell this home - I can't imagine working with anyone else. September 12, 2010 Top qualities: Personable , Expert Ben Brode hired Danny and Jade as a Real Estate Agent in 2010

My family had the good fortune to work with Danny to find our home.

We had a very tight deadline and Danny was very helpful throughout the whole process. Always available, always willing to talk us through the various stages, making a stressful time feel less overwhelming.Danny took the time to get to know us, as well as understand our needs. He helped steer us away from houses that might not have been the right fit for us. Placing our needs first he never pressured us to get things done quickly but rather was a sounding board to help us making the correct decision.When the right house came up he went all out to make sure we didn't lose it.And Danny's help didn't end when we had purchased our home. He was there to answer questions we had for repairs and upgrades to our new home. I have no reservations at all recommending Danny to anyone and would not hesitate to work with him again.

Matthew Berger

“I met Danny Murphy approximately two years ago while trying to list and sell my duplex in East Costa Mesa.

The property was a For Sale By Owner, and Mr. Murphy was methodical in his conversations with me regarding the benefits of listing with a full service marketing and advertising firm, such as First Team Real Estate, and hiring agents who could leverage the use of technology, the internet, and video, in addition to the good ‘ole fashioned fundamentals of selling real estate to sell my property. After a year and half, my Wife and I hired Jade and Danny to sell our duplex in East Costa Mesa. We knew we had a great property, that was unique in many ways, and we believe that Jade and Danny showcased our property to the buying community in a very professional and technologically savvy manner. Jade and Danny handled every aspect of the process with diligence and care, from communicating with our tenants, which lead to a very smooth process for them, to organizing showings, skillfully negotiating the terms and conditions of offers we received, to facilitating the escrow process, thus enabling a smooth escrow that closed on-time. In an industry as seemingly commoditized as real estate, Danny and Jade are professionals that articulated a strategy to get top dollar for our property in the shortest possible period of time, and they delivered! I would highly recommend their services to anyone looking to sell their home.” Richard, 2011

I recently had the privilege of working with Danny on a real estate transaction in southern California.

Throughout the process Danny was polite, professional, and knowledgeable. He was attentive to details, flexible in identifying solutions, and a pleasure to work with all around. I would welcome the opportunity to do business with him again, and confidently recommend him to others. October 29, 2010 David Ludden, Real Estate Consultant, Keller Williams Realty was with another company when working with Danny at First Team Real Estate

Danny is one of the best in the business.

He has great attention to detail, he's a skilled negotiator, and always delivers cutting edge marketing strategies. Most importantly, you can always trust him.

Jeremiah Secrest

"My Wife and I recently hired Jade and Danny to sell our home as part of a company relocation.

Jade and Danny were well versed in every aspect of the relocation process, which is more involved than a typical escrow. They ensured that our relocation company, and all interested parties had what they needed, when they needed it. Jade and Danny did a good job marketing and advertising our home. Not only did they utilize of all of the traditional marketing tools, but they were also very good at leveraging technology like QR codes, and social media, including creating a YouTube video tour of our home, an interactive floor plan with photos, and they syndicated our home on Facebook, Pinterest, and their blog. As a result, we received multiple offers, and our home ended up selling for above our asking price! Communication from Jade and Danny throughout the entire process was timely, helpful and appreciated. We would absolutey recommend Jade and Danny to anyone that is selling their home!" Andy & Kristi, 2014

"Josh and I both wanted to thank you very much for the tremendous efforts you undertook to get us into our new home so efficiently and ever cheerfully!

  You really made the process of buying our first home in the US much smoother and more enjoyable than we hoped.  We look forward to continuing our friendship in the years to come and we will also be sure to recommend you whenever the opportunity arises!" Nancy, 2011

"Danny called me at least 2 years back in regards to my property.

I was thinking of selling it, but wanted to wait till the price was right for me. He kept up with me thru the years. When it finally came down to selling, I contacted him, as well as other agents to see who we were compatible with. Jade and Danny were very responsive and eager and had a full comprehensive plan with comps ready for me to go over. We decided to go with them overall based on the commitment Danny had shown in the past years. From start to finish they were both very responsive with all the upgrades and other things that we needed to do to the property to get it at the price we wanted. They had the right resources to guide and help me to make it ready for sale. When it came down to selling, they had their semi-pro photographer come in and take the pictures so they could have the flyers ready for an immediate open house that coming weekend. Danny was able to guide me thru to make sure whatever offers came in, we were able to go over them properly to see what was best overall. It was a good experience and would recommend using Jade & Danny along with their team." Patrick, 2016

Thank you and Jade for all the hard work you put into the sale of the home and finding us new homes.

The added touch made things easier for me especially knowing that the best team in town was on the job. We wanted the best and we got the best.  Ada, 2011

From our first contact with Danny he was professional and responded to our numerous questions promptly.

He took care of our interests in the transaction and we feel we were well served by his efforts. Butch & Tina, 2018

"Jade and Danny both helped me find my first home and sell it 2 years later for a great profit!

Jade is one of the most organized, thorough people I have ever met. They get the job done and are always very personable. Someone you can truly trust!" Rachel, 2015

Danny helped us find our new home and both my husband and I really enjoyed working with him.

Not only is he dedicated, reliable and professional, but he truly cares about you and is always on top of things. We would highly recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell in the OC area.

Helen Thompson

"Jade and Danny were a joy to work with.

They are both very knowledgeable about the Huntington Beach area. This was my first time selling a house and, to me, it was a very stressful situation since it was due to a corporate relocation and I would not be around to handle any part of it in person. Jade and Danny took away my anxiety by keeping updating during every step of the process. Every part of the experience was handled with professionalism, from helping me find someone to handle the grass cutting, to setting up inspections and scheduling any necessary repairs. I would highly recommend Jade and Danny to anyone looking to sell their house. They will treat you with respect and get the job done." Karl, 2014

"My Wife and I recently hired Jade & Danny to sell our home as part of a corporate relocation.

Due to our timeline, we needed Jade and Danny to get the property on the market very quickly, yet it was important to us that no corners were cut to properly market and advertise the home. Jade and Danny assured us that they could deliver on all fronts under a very tight timeline, and they did. They demonstrated a deep understanding of the higher-end, Huntington Beach coastal area market, which led to us being priced right, marketed to the right audience, and selling at a very good price in a reasonable period of time. Jade and Danny were well versed in the relocation process, thus ensuring that the relocation company, and all other stakeholders had what they needed in a timely manner. We would absolutely recommend Jade and Danny to anyone that is selling their home, especially as part of a relocation!" Bob & Sharon, 2014

" I was thinking of selling my home without an agent, because I have some experience with buying and selling.

However,  I'm so glad that I made the decision to have Danny and Justin represent me. Getting an offer for the amount you want  is just the first step to selling a house. They represented my interests through every aspect of the process, escrow, inspections, requests from buyers, etc. Their attention to detail was critical in making the entire process as painless as possible. I am extremely pleased not only with the price that I was able to get for my house, but the entire process of selling. Every time there was a question, this team responded quickly and professionally. They had someone available for every need, from electrical, to HVAC, to roofing and they even recommended a mover. I can highly recommend Danny and Justin with the utmost confidence, and will definitely use them for my next real estate transaction! - Kim P. ,2018 "

"We could not have made our move to California from Georgia with out Jade and Danny by our side.

They listened to all of the things we said we wanted and also read between the lines. Their patience was outstanding. I believe we saw 13 homes in one day and in four different cities.  Jade and Danny did her research on the comparables in the neighborhood and did a wonderful job negotiating the final price. They also worked tirelessly to ensure the house was move in ready. I have never received this type of service. I can't imagine working with anyone else on our next home adventure. Thanks Jade and Danny!" Rob & Sarah, 2014

"We just purchased our first home and we owe much credit to Danny.

He made this scary and cumbersome process much easier than what we had expected. All of our questions were answered quickly and thoroughly while educating us on each step of the way. His attention to detail, knowledge of the market  place, and negotiations skills made us feel confident in our decision making. We love our new home and could not be more pleased with Danny’s services. We definitely recommend Danny at First Team Realty to anyone and would not hesitate to use him again." Anthony & Evelyn, 2018

"We are living in a time when the term "customer service excellence" has been cheapened by overuse and lack of delivery.

Not so with Jade and Danny. Like many transactions, ours was faced with a unique set of challenges, few of them related to the property itself. Jade and Danny had uncanny foresight in dealing with each issue, often before the issue even came up. It was almost like they could see into the future. These are among the most professional people I have ever worked with. I am not embellishing when I say this." Stephen, 2016

"Moving can be a very stressful process.

Jade and Danny made things as seamless as possible. Our home sold quickly at the price we had discussed. As we were searching for our new home, they were always available to view listings. When the time to purchase came, we were equally pleased with the negotiations and purchase price." Sten & Devon, 2015

"Danny is by far the best agent in Southern California!

He went above and beyond to make sure every detail was taken care of during our process in purchasing a new home. His support and dedication to our Real Estate needs were far more than any agent I have ever met before. I would highly recommend Danny and his SoCalLifeTeam anytime!" Rachel, 2017

Throughout the process Danny was thoroughly prepared, highly organized, communicative, diligent and energetic.

He worked every angle to market our property in the most advantageous and visible means possible, and always kept us informed of the activity and buyer feedback. He effectively re-defined what could have been perceived negatives to the property, principally the fact that it was not an upgraded home, and convincingly made buyers see the benefit in such a situation, namely the ability to buy a property for significantly less than comparables and upgrade the home exactly as they would like it. To say we were extremely pleased with our experience with Danny would be an understatement. We would highly recommend you consider Danny Murphy as your exclusive real estate agent when considering any real estate transaction, whether you are an investor or a buyer/seller of your personal residence. Client: Margaret and Randy S., 2010

"Danny and Jade were great individuals to work with.

As a first time home buyer, I was uncertain and nervous about the whole process. Danny and Jade put my nerves at ease by taking the time to explain things to me and make sure I understood everything. Both Danny and Jade were easy to talk to and made my first experience of buying a home an enjoyable one. " Katelyn, 2011

"We just wanted to thank you for helping us find our new home and for going above and beyond with guiding us through the home buying process.

It was an absolute pleasure working with you and we just love our new home! We are very impressed by the level of personal service and attention we received from start to end and we will definitely recommend you to anyone we know who are looking to sell or buy a new home. You are outstanding!" Ben & Helen, 2012

"Jade and Danny helped my family find a new rental home when we had outgrown our current one (which she also helped us find).

There was not much available in the area we wanted to be in but they worked hard to schedule viewings as soon as a property came up that fit what we wanted and went the extra mile to help us secure the perfect rental when we found it. We were chosen over 3 other applicants and I know it was because Jade and Danny suggested we write a letter and include a picture of our family with our application. Once we moved in, Jade called to follow up and make sure all repairs were done to our satisfaction. Jade and Danny truly cares about their clients and it shows! I would not hesitate for a second to recommend them to anyone looking for a rental or a home to buy or sell!" Janelle, 2014

I am so grateful for the stellar service Danny Murphy provided to my family and I in the recent sale of our home in Irvine.

In the face of depressed home prices, bargain hunting buyers, and a distressed economy, Danny successfully got us from “for sale” to “sold” in only 88 days, and for only slightly less than our asking price. Danny is more than a realtor, he is a competent advisor. Every step of the way, Danny exceeded our expectations – from shooting a virtual tour of our home and sharing it on YouTube, to proactively communicating with the buyer’s agent, inspector, multiple service providers, and us to ensure we stayed on track, and even picking up a modem we inadvertently left at the house after the new owners moved in. We look forward to working with Danny for our future real estate needs and recommend him without hesitation. Client: Albert and Teresa, 2011

Danny was awesome to work with.

He delivered so much more than we expected. Thanks you so much!

"I had worked previously with Jade, so I knew what she brought to the table.

And again I was not disappointed. Jade and Danny helped me prep my property for sale including taking care of the upgrades - paint, flooring, etc. They knew exactly what was needed to show the property best. When Jade went on vacation Danny stepped right in and didn't miss a beat. Together, Jade and Danny make an excellent team for all your real estate needs." Mike, 2014

"Few real estate agents that I have ever met make a truly genuine effort to assist their buy side clients as if their own money were at stake.

Fewer still can back up that commitment with institutional caliber real estate and financial transaction skills, knowledge, and expertise. To find both sets of attributes in one team is extremely rare and I could not have been more fortunate to stumble upon Danny and Jade in my search for investment properties in Orange County. Without exaggeration, Jade and Danny are, in the plainest and truest sense of the word, professionals, in an industry sorely lacking thereof, and I do not hesitate in recommending them." David, 2013

"This was a fully professional experience from the beginning to the completed sale!

Jade and Danny have great knowledge of the market and the movement trends. They started with a presentation of the realities of the changing Southern California market ... then presented a very comprehensive marketing plan to accompany their recommended listing price. They implemented their marketing efforts step by step and we sold the house in three days ... and above the listing price!  Most importantly, they kept us fully informed throughout the process and if they did not immediately know the answer to a question they researched it and were back with a thorough answer in hours. I would list with them again in a heart beat ... and most importantly, trust their knowledge and guidance through out the process." Walter, 2013

"Jade and Danny provided very personalized service that made us feel like we'd been friends for years.

They were able to help us sell our house quickly. For the purchase side, they are great listeners and did not push us in a direction that we didn't want to go. Overall, they were excellent." Josh & Nicole, 2013

My wife and I had the pleasure of working with Danny and his team during our relocation from the east coast to Long Beach.

To say it was a stressful time for my family would be an understatement! Danny took the time to get to know us, understand what we were looking for, and ultimately find us the perfect house. Although desperation was setting in, he never allowed us to simply settle or overbid on something just to sell us a home. He handled our moments of anxiety and frustration as a professional and closed every conversation with “hang in there, we will find you the right house!” It was never a doubt that he had our best interest at the forefront of every decision. To Danny and your team, we can’t thank you enough! It was an absolute pleasure for my family and I to work with you! Cheers! Tony & Sarah, 2018

Moving across the country to California is a very exciting opportunity!

However, it can also be quite challenging with many bumps along the way! Luckily we had Danny Murphy to see us through… Danny and his team were very knowledgeable about the local area and helped guide us to our perfect home. Danny was always available to talk to us and answer any questions or concerns we may have, never seeming too busy to help us feel at ease. We feel Danny truly went above & beyond to make sure we were comfortable and informed about buying our new home and look forward to the time we can work with him again!

"As a seasoned investor of Residential Income Properties, I was extremely impressed with Danny's expertise in this field.

The challenges in the market place today regarding Residential Income Properties was handled in a very professional manner by Danny, that required one year of persistence on his part to find the perfect Million Dollar Property for me to purchase and then to execute the transaction seamlessly. I would recommend Jade and Danny for Investment Property purchases and the selling of Investment Properties as well." Susan, 2012

"Danny and Jade helped us sell our house with the price we are satisfied with.

They were very detail oriented and always kept us informed on the status on our house. Everything that they did was in our best interest. We will highly recommend them to all of our friends, and we will ask them again to sell our new house in the future." Thomas & Misa, 2013

"I consulted with Jade & Danny before and during the sale of my home.

As the area specialists, I have been seeing their timely and useful information about my neighborhood for many years, and I knew that they understood all of the important nuances and benefits of where we live. I was also very impressed with the marketing strategy that Jade & Danny employ to get top dollar, in the shortest period of time for their Sellers. Not all Realtors are the same. Not all Realtors work as hard as Jade & Danny. Not all Realtors care about our neighborhood like Jade & Danny. Jade & Danny are consummate professionals. They follow through and over-deliver. They have integrity and you can trust them." Mike, 2014

"Jade and Danny did a terrific job getting our Huntington Beach property sold.

When we first met with them, they provided us detailed data about current market conditions, comps for recent sales and valuation of our property. They showed a true understanding of the local real estate market and quickly put together a plan of action to market our home.  Jade & Danny regularly conducted open houses as well as canvassed the local area distributing flyers announcing our MLS listing. Professional photographs were taken, giving the flyers and social media postings a very professional look. Communication was great. Jade and Danny had several meetings with us to discuss open house/social media results and recommended strategy changes to help get our house sold. It made it very helpful with Jade and Danny having a team of contractors (handyman, painter, window cleaners, etc.) at their disposal who could come in and take care of things, as necessary. Our house sold very quickly and everything went very smoothly! We highly recommend Jade and Danny to help you buying/selling real estate!" Bruce, 2014

"Danny Murphy and his team does an excellent job of advertising and marketing to get your property sold.

The matterport that he uses for 3D inside the house and the aerial drone footage that he sets up all increases your profile on social media. He and his team are an excellent source in selling your property." Brian & Doreen, 2017

"Sherry and I had a great experience with both Danny and Jade.

They are a great team; with both being available, it was like we had 24/7 representation. We spent most of our time with Danny and we can't say enough about how prepared and informed he was throughout the process. He went the extra mile every time…from setting up home tours, to preparing offers, to meeting personally with the sellers to present our offers. In every case both Sherry and I were actually surprised by how hard he worked every item. Sherry and I have bought and sold our share of homes over the years and worked with many realtors. None of those ever left us with a "memorable" experience. Not the case with Danny and Jade; a very memorable experience. We highly recommend them!" Jim and Sherry, 2012

"Danny and Jade rock!

  Simply put....if you want favorable and fast results on complicated real estate transactions, then this is your team.  Danny and Jade did a great job selling my home in downtown Los Angeles." James, 2012

My husband and I recently purchased a new home in Mission Viejo, and we were represented by Danny Murphy.

  From the start of the process, Danny was always very organized and prepared.  He had often previewed properties on our behalf, or when we found homes that we wanted to see right away, Danny never hesitated to arrange to get us into properties whether it was in the evening or on a rainy weekend in January.    Over the course of two months, my husband and I looked at over 40 properties and we made offers on six different homes.  When making those offers, Danny did a great job ensuring that we understood the contracts/forms that we were signing, his use of technology enabled us to sign offers via email using an electronic document signing program, which for me was an enormous benefit as I have a full time executive role and I have a newborn.  As we made offers, we always felt that Danny put us in the best possible position to get our offers accepted.  He communicated effectively with the listing agents, he always tried to present our offers in person, all along we knew he had our best financial and emotional interests at the forefront.  In the end, we found a great home at a good value, and we appreciate all of Danny’s efforts.  We would definitely recommend him to our friends and family.   Tina

Personable, Professional, Expert Negotiator and Knowledgeable.

You can't ask for more when choosing a Real Estate Agent. Danny goes above and beyond to make sure he achieves your goal of buying or selling a home.
