You’ll be hard pressed finding a photo of Karen Murphy at a function on her own or without a microphone to her month. The reason for this is Karen loves Logan, business and community and does so many things for it.

In the early 2000’s Karen visited friends and family down south and after many conversations with friends while there, on the way home the research began with an aim on securing her long-term future. It was not long after this that Karen and her husband jumped into the property market with buying, renovating and selling homes.

After some time doing this, Karen moved into her new path by becoming a sales professional.

Karen said the new business venture meant that it was about helping other buyers, sellers and investors with their own property goals.

“I felt proud to be approached by clients due to my experience firsthand in the field and empowered as a mother of two who simply wished to build her retirement account.

“Helping others to find the right fit for them gives me great pleasure particularly in a crowded market.”

For around a decade now, Karen has worked within the real estate industry and has been rather successful in this field. Working for Vision Property Group, Karen makes a lot of contacts because of her line of work but also because she is so active in the community, predominately Beenleigh. 

If you own a small business in the City of Logan you would most likely have herd of Karen as she joined the Executive Board of the Beenleigh Yatala Chamber of Commerce as President in 2017 and was re-elected in 2018 after previously serving as a Committee Member.

The passion Karen has for helping people, not only in business and real estate, but also in life and helping make their goals a reality is something to be envied by others. From young people right though to seasoned business people, Karen always has an ear to listen.  

Her passion shines through everything she does and while working and doing business daily, Karen is also involved with Quota International of Beenleigh, the Scripture Union Chaplaincy Program and Standing Tall Against Abusive Relationships (STAAR) among others.

Her achievements were recognised last year when she was awarded Volunteer of the Year by Quota International which saw her visit the USA with a handful of local Quota members. Karen also received the Wonderful Waterford Womens Award in recognition of community service by Shannon Fentiman MP.

2018 was a busy year for Karen as she was also selected number 12 in a list of 30 most influential people in Logan City by the local newspaper. Karen was surrounded by politicians and other highly successful business people and well deserved to be on this list.

Karen has also had a helping hand in many different projects around Logan with one of the latest being the Tree of Life mural which was unveiled on March 17.

With the year not even halfway through, Karen is keeping busy working with her teams in the various organisations to improve business and community in Logan and of course flying around Beenleigh helping the suburb grow.

She has a real passion for 4207 and for so many reasons; Karen Murphy is the Queen of Beenleigh.
