Linda Brann, Office Manager
I was born and raised in La Junta until leaving for college to attend Colorado State University in Ft. Collins. When my father, Norm, was diagnosed with cancer, he asked if we would be interested in getting our real estate license and moving back to the Arkansas Valley to help him out. So, in 1989, we returned and began selling real estate with dad and took over Norm Murphy & Associates, Inc., the family business, in 1993. I have the sweet privilege of being the proud mother of two sons, Kalvin (daughter-in-law, Leah) and Keith and the "LuLu" of two adorable, energetic grandsons - Willem & Remy. After celebrating 50 years as Norm Murphy, we had the exciting opportunity to merge with ReMax Advantage to form The Murphy Group. We look forward to blending their incredible support & awesome resources with our top-notch, local agents! If you need any help with buying or selling-The Murphy Group would love to assist you.

Beth Howe, Broker Associate
Hi there! Thank you for taking the time to learn more about me. I was born and raised in the Arkansas Valley and am excited to work with the community to help make the buying and selling process smooth and comfortable. Farming and Ranching is what I am passionate about, and I look forward to connecting with people looking to buy and sell in the agricultural areas. Just like you, I have the same respect for this great land that God has entrusted in our care. There is nothing that will gain a higher respect than land that is no longer being made. I cannot wait to meet like-minded people and better serve our area with a LOCAL face and name. You no longer need to expand to an out of area agent who doesn't understand the sweat on your back, the blood and the tears that it takes to manage and work the land. I fully understand your struggles and successes! The commodities market has their good years and bad years, let's chat about how your operation ended the year and if you are able to expand or want to downsize. Are you a buyer who needs to know what local water shares are trading for? Are you a new buyer who needs information on what types of loans are available for a beginning farmer, I can help! Let's keep your business local and connect on a personal level from one landowner to another.
I am also currently working with residential buyers and sellers who I have loved building a strong connection with. With my wonderful clients' help, I had the honor of being awarded the Rookie of the Year for the Pueblo Association of Realtors in 2021.
I look forward to working hard for all of my clients near and far, give me a call!

Brenda Tenney, Broker Associate
There are many qualities and skills that go into being an excellent real estate professional - integrity, in-depth community and market knowledge, marketing savvy, effective negotiation skills and a high-quality professional network, all of which are hallmarks of how I work.That said, in my experience as a La Junta real estate professional, I've also found that providing the very best service is essentially about putting my clients first. This means keeping myself accessible, being a good listener as well as a good communicator, and responding quickly to your needs.This "client first" philosophy has always been my approach and it requires me to continually improve my skills and ways of doing business. In addition, I've found that the latest technologies are enabling me to do everything I've always done, only much more quickly and efficiently. They've also helped me to extend the range of services I provide to my clients.
