I was born and raised in Melrose. I graduated from Melrose High School in 2002 and was accepted to Salem State College where I earned my Bachelors of Science in Business Administration in 2007. I started my insurance career at Paul Murphy Insurance in 2003, working as assisting customers, handling billing questions and filing paperwork. I passed the Massachusetts P & C Licensing exam in 01/2007, and I’ve continued to maintained my license.

I currently live in Malden with my wife, our dog Toby and our cat Jax . I enjoy playing basketball, yard work and working out. Fun Fact- I eat chicken for lunch every day. I also enjoy trying to teach my dog new tricks and watching all types of sports.

I was born, and currently reside, in New Bedford, MA. I began my Insurance career here at Paul Murphy Insurance in January of 2009. When I began working at the agency, I was residing in the greater Boston area and taking classes through Northeastern University. I began writing and reviewing personal auto policies, which later expanded into other aspects of personal lines insurance including homeowners and dwelling fire policies, umbrella policies, boat insurance and personal article floaters. Over the years, I have acquired professional designations in both personal lines as well as commercial lines insurance. I have been involved in book rolls as well as the integration of several new insurance companies into this office. Although I now concentrate more in the Commercial lines area of the business, personal lines insurance is still an integral part of my day to day operations.

As an industry, the products and availability of the insurance companies are constantly evolving, we as insurance professionals are tasked with keeping up with the times. There is never a dull moment in this industry and I welcome this challenge. It is exciting to be able to speak to our customers and explain the changes that are taking place all while being able to offer different products to fit their evolving needs. When I first began at this office, I viewed my original position in the agency as a job, but now take it on as my career. I look forward to the years to come here at Paul Murphy Insurance Agency!

I was born and raised in the Berkshires and made my way to the Greater Boston area while attending UMASS Lowell. After earning a bachelor’s degree in Business Management, I started my career within insurance industry at Safety Insurance in downtown Boston. Throughout my ten-year career, my experience has primarily focused on personal lines; home and auto policy. I recently decided to move from the corporate side of insurance to the agency level because I preferred working directly with customers to build stronger personal relationships. I joined Paul Murphy Insurance Agency in June of 2017 and I’m fortunate to continue develop my career within the insurance industry; taking my corporate experience to an agency setting. I currently live in Dorchester and I’m proud to call Boston my home now!

TESTIMONIALS

What People Say

  • When I called the staff at Paul T. Murphy Insurance, they explained how auto reform would allow me to increase coverage and save money at the same time. I moved my home and umbrella insurance to my current auto carrier and saved over $350. In July 2008 when my auto insurance renews with Safety Insurance, I will save another $300 just for having my auto and home insurance with the same company. The staff at Paul T Murphy Insurance Agency really understands the new Massachusetts reform and how to pass savings and additional coverage to their clients.

  • After many years of doing business with the Paul T. Murphy Insurance Agency, I am thrilled to learn of this relationship with Northrup to service the Lynnfield area. I have trusted both my personal and business policies with Paul and have never received less than the best of service. I like the face that they service as professionals but treat you like a friend. Recently during a complicated Workers Comp claim, Paul showed up to walk me through what I thought would be a mess of paperwork and confusion – the personalized service I receive spoke volumes. I have never gotten service like that from anyone else. I also like the fact that they are always ready to save me money without ever compromising my coverage.

  • One of the best business and personal decisions I ever made was to collaborate with Paul Murphy Insurance Company for our families insurance needs. Starting with our business policies, then eventually all of our personal policies, we have slowly transitioned all to be managed by PMI. Many companies loosely tout that they treat you as one of the family; PMI proves it in their actions. We are glad we are part of their family.
