Michael Murphy joins REMAX in Roscommon

Knockcroghery resident Michael Murphy has joined RE/MAX Professionals, Roscommon, located at Castle Street.             Michael’s father came from Galway and his mother from Castleplunkett. In fact, one of Michael’s earliest memories is of Castleplunkett NS, where his grandfather Joseph O’Donnell, was Principal teacher. At the age of three, he was visiting the school with his mother and put his finger in an inkwell and ended up with ink all over his hands and face! He remembers his grandfather washing off the ink.             Michael was reared in Mullingar and then attended University in Galway. He later studied at the Law Society law school in Dublin and qualified as a solicitor. He worked in Sligo and then set up his own law practice in Galway. After practising for twenty-two years, he decided on a career change and sold the business. Having a long-term interest in the property world, and wishing to gain a formal qualification in estate agency, he decided to study with the Institute of Professional Auctioneers and Valuers (IPAV) at the Athlone Institute of Technology. Michael also now holds a Certificate in Fine Art and Antiques from IPAV.             RE/MAX, the largest and most successful estate agency network in the world, caught Michael’s attention and he has now joined RE/MAX Professionals, Roscommon. Michael noticed that RE/MAX had a uniquely successful way of working with people. To quote Michael, ‘It simply makes good sense to go with the winning team!’ When you want to talk to Michael about a property opportunity, he can be contacted at RE/MAX Professionals, telephone (090) 66 32445 or (087) 2525844 or email michaelmurphy@remax.ie
