Simon Murphy was born in Birmingham and was educated at Aiglon College, Switzerland and Cheltenham College. On leaving Cheltenham, Simon returned to Birmingham where he obtained a Diploma in Estate Management. Simon then obtained his first position in Birmingham with King & Co. (now King Sturge) where he qualified as a Chartered Surveyor in December 1983.
In 1988 he formed his own Practice trading as ‘Simon Murphy Chartered Surveyors’ based in Birmingham.
Since that date the Practice has acted on behalf of several major Clients including Esso, The Post Office, Ventaxia plc, Lloyds TSB Bank plc and Allied Irish Bank (GB) although in the main Clients tend to be successful businessmen who own their own business and enjoy having their property affairs handled by Simon Murphy personally.
In November 2003 Simon Murphy opened a new office in Switzerland which does now Market, Let and Manage Swiss Properties within the Alpine Resort of Villars sur Ollon where ‘hands on' professional advice and assistance can be provided by an English speaking Chartered Surveyor to potential purchasers/tenants.
2007 has seen the launch of ‘Simon Murphy International’ with the office in Switzerland now being the head office of a practice which will now handle Residential Property in ‘up market’ areas worldwide.
