Russell Murphy

Director / Licensed Estate Agent

P. 0407 839 184

Director and Licensed Estate Agent Russell has been selling real estate since 2008, with a main focus on the Mornington Peninsula, yet never afraid to venture beyond to achieve results for his clients.


Russell has worked in all aspects of the industry, including commercial and industrial sales and leasing, business brokering, residential sales and "off-plan" townhouse and apartment developments.

A background in plumbing and construction, and experience with his partner Anna in property renovations and townhouse developments allows Russell to look at properties with a much more open mind, providing prospective purchasers with the knowledge of opportunities that an established home may hold, unlocking extra value for them and for you.

Underpinning his success in achieving outstanding results is Russell's personable approach to everyone he meets, whether they be vendors, purchasers, suppliers or his favourite barista in his much-loved Main Street. At ease with the most formal of settings or most casual of worksites, Russell's professional yet easy going personality helps him relate to people from all walks of life, helping to establish his reputation for honesty, integrity and transparency.

Celeste Little

Sales Consultant

With over 13 years of sales experience, Celeste’s “old school attitude” and ethics comes across in every encounter.


While starting her real estate journey in Balwyn, and then making her ideal life changing move to the Mornington Peninsula, Celeste’s skillset and enthusiasm coupled with unrivalled customer experience has quickly become a great asset to Russell Murphy Real Estate.


 Her passion for real estate started long before her career in the industry. Celeste has enjoyed many weekends renovating tired old abodes, to their newfound glory, and gained much pleasure from on-selling them to delighted clients.


Incorporating life experiences, exceptional customer service skills and a keen eye for attention to detail, enables Celeste to give the best service and care to all her clients no matter what their property needs may be.


Outside of work Celeste loves spending time with her husband and her two beautiful daughters.


“I am a firm believer of showing my girls what hard work and love of what I do, can achieve”.
