A native Memphian, I grew up with parents who were in building/developing and home sales, and real estate was the talk of our household. Becoming a licensed agent in 1988 after college was a natural career fit, and I sold homes for several years before taking a break to raise my two children. In 2011, I re-established my real estate career and have since enjoyed helping buyers and sellers with successful closings in all areas of Memphis from Downtown to Collierville. Although I work with clients all over town, the older, established neighborhoods in Midtown and East Memphis are where I grew up and still live (across the street from my childhood home!) and I love sharing my hometown knowledge of those areas with my clients.
I have a passion for my work and for Memphis! My commitment to clients is to provide them with the highest level of professionalism and serve as their advocate in one of life’s most important business transactions. Having bought and sold several homes personally, I am able to put myself in the client’s shoes. I understand how stressful it can be having a home on the market or dealing with the details of a move. I strive to make the process as simple as possible for my clients, serving as an advisor, providing resources and communicating openly and often so we can work together to successfully reach the client’s goals. My list of lenders, attorneys, contractors, handymen, stagers, packer and movers is extensive, and I am happy to help clients coordinate whatever details are necessary to get from listing to contract to closing.
My business philosophy is one of service and always putting the client's needs first. Integrity, hard work and attention to detail have been most important in both my professional and community volunteer positions. Those skills and my many connections in the community are key to helping my clients with the successful sale and purchase of their homes.

"Courtney is a fantastic real estate agent. She studies your situation and is very analytical about providing information to you for the best possible deal. She is constantly following up and making sure that you are satisfied. She is always available which is amazing to me. Courtney is a very informed professional in the real estate business and I highly recommend her to anyone." ~ Diana
“Courtney quickly understand my situation and what was required to market my home successfully. She did the homework, researched and identified the solution, and implemented all of it with speed and grace. She is a pro!” ~ Rob J. & family
“A mutual friend recommended Courtney and I have since thanked him for the recommendation numerous times. I explained to Courtney what I was looking for and the type of house I wanted and she set out to find it. While we looked at a ton of houses, I always felt like she knew whether I liked the house and whether it would be a good fit for ME and my lifestyle. Courtney was a pleasure to work with and I would recommend Courtney (and have) to all my friends and family." ~ Brandon G.
“Courtney is an excellent and extremely knowledgeable realtor in the Memphis area. She has been beyond helpful and generous with her time in helping us find the best home and location for our wants & needs. Her expertise in the housing market has made the process a lot more enjoyable and less stressful. I would strongly recommend working with Courtney!" ~ Caroline & J. P.
“Courtney has a wonderful combination of warmth and professionalism. Throughout the challenging period of moving my mother from her home of 50 years, answering repeated questions and tactfully negotiating everything from décor updates to contract confusion, it was a pleasure working with Courtney Murrah. From beginning to end and beyond the sale, she is the consummate professional.” ~ Rinnie W.
"Courtney recently sold my East Memphis home. She was extremely professional throughout the process and worked hard to make certain that I was well-informed about the ways in which I could maximize the value of my property through careful planning. Because of Courtney's hard work and expertise, my home sold in a few weeks for full asking price. I would highly recommend her to any prospective seller." ~ Lisa J.
“As a young, first-time buyer with a limited budget, I could not have had a better overall experience with Courtney. She offered outstanding service from start to finish. She was prompt, thorough, and extremely attentive. Courtney has great knowledge of the business, and always had superb recommendations on what to do next. As much research as I did before starting the buying process, I truly had no idea what I was getting into before I contacted her. She was exactly what I needed in an agent, and I still cannot get over how patient and helpful she was throughout. I highly recommend Courtney, and will absolutely choose her again next time.” ~ Adam W.
“We met Courtney at an open house and loved how thorough and helpful she was. We decided that we wanted her to help us with our home search in an extremely difficult market with very low inventory. Courtney was on top of every detail and knew the market in and out! She made herself available whenever we needed her to show houses or answer questions. In the critical stages of contract negotiation, inspection and closing Courtney was the very best. We purchased an older home and there were so many details that she made sure were covered. Especially things that we would not have thought of without her expertise. Yet another reason she stands out from other realtors. We cannot say enough wonderful things about Courtney Murrah. We highly recommend her as she made our whole experience a great one. Courtney is top notch!” ~ Lauren & Brian Y.
“I want to give a shout-out to Courtney Murrah for the fabulous job she did to get the right first home for my son. Courtney typically has represented higher-end customers seeking homes in high-end city-proper neighborhoods. My son was an atypical customer, to say the least. He had little money and wanted a home in the suburbs. Courtney rose to the challenge, enthusiastically, no less. She found many attractive options. Her true value became clear at contract time, when she fought to protect my son when some issues came to light, not only with the inspection but also at the final walk-through. Given her performance, you'd have thought she had a million-dollar commission on the line. We could not have had a better buying experience and I would recommend her to anyone wanting a real professional who also has a lovely sense of humor and a true spirit of representing her clients to the utmost.” ~ Barbara W.
“Courtney was instrumental in helping my family transition from our challenging real estate situation. Her proactivity, sensitivity, good judgement and motivation were exemplary. She took the weight of 6,000 square feet off our shoulders and helped us sell our house at a fair price in a reasonable time-period. I strongly recommend Courtney as a friend and a Realtor!” ~ Rob J.
“Courtney has been a tremendous help in our search, and I would highly recommend her. She has a near encyclopedic knowledge of East Memphis and I am so glad we have been working with her.” ~ J.C. Carr
"I had an outstanding experience with Courtney. She was extremely kind, personable, and had exceptional communication. She went above and beyond the call of duty during inspections to make sure the house I was buying was fixed up as good as it could be. If I could give her 10 stars I would, and I have already recommended her to others." ~ Rob C.
