In her early teen years, she acquired the nickname "Keys" through making it her business to open doors for everyone. Lwane's parents sparked her passion for real estate due to their investment portfolio of over 20 homes and 20 acres within the US and abroad. As a young adult, she spent many summers attending lease signings as well as cleaning and painting homes, preparing for new tenants. Thoroughly understanding the good and the bad of real estate, Lwane prides herself on providing every client with integrity, transparency, respect, and a level of service that is second to none.
Originally from Michigan, Lwane received her M.A. in Accounting from the University of Michigan. A member of the Real Estate Board of New York, she is also associated with the National Association of Black Accountants and a participant of her local Community Board 10. When not working, Lwane is most likely spending time with her husband and one-year-old son, working out at her local gym, or working with different restaurateurs to create events that bring Harlemites together in a social networking atmosphere.
Lwane is truly a great agent. She helped us out from start to finish and has even been a great source of support during our new stay.

Lwane did a wonderful job and helped me find the right home! I would recommend her to anyone interested in moving in the NY area.
I cannot speak highly enough of Lwane! This was my first time dealing with agents in NYC, and I've experienced the ones who take their time in getting back to you, the ones who criticize everything from your income range to your request for a pet-friendly apartment, to the ones who show you apartments way out of your price range and break your heart. Lwane was professional, personable, and helped us get a perfect apartment after several months of searching. Lwane showed us three apartments, all within our price range, all a fantastic value, and made wonderful suggestions to utilize the space effectively. One thing I really appreciated is that she was honest- she talked about the pros and cons of each place and encouraged us to look around and investigate to see if there was anything we didn't like. She told us about the neighborhood, great restaurants to try in the area, and even walked us to the subway after our viewing so we would know the quickest way to get downtown. She also went the extra mile in the approval process- she told me exactly what documents I would need and basically walked me through the entire process, and had an incredible response time. We were approved in a week, and she was able to negotiate with the landlord to let us move in early without paying extra! I would unreservedly recommend Lwane to any of my friends looking to move, and have an entirely new outlook on the process of finding an apartment now- Lwane took the pain and headache out of it for me! Look no further than Lwane if you''re looking for as stress-free of an apartment hunt as possible!
We hired Lwane when we were looking for an apartment in New York. A difficult task when you are cross country and working full time. Lwane took the time to understand our likes, dislikes, budget, commute and neighborhood requirements. She quickly went to work and within 48 hours after our first conversation, we had a list of potential apartments complete with pictures and great descriptions. She handled every detail of the transaction expeditiously with finesse and professionalism. If you want a professional realtor who is knowledgeable, trustworthy and creative - She is the one.
Lwane "Keys" was very helpful in my apartment search in Manhattan. She was personable and calm and treated me and my family with respect and honesty.
Lwane is detail orientated and will not settle until her clients are completely satisfied. She is extremely trustworthy and listens to her client's desires. She found me an apartment while I was living 3,000 miles away and when I arrived in New York I was thrilled to see my new home. She is easy to work with and is definitely a go-getter!
Lwane came highly recommended to me from a trusted friend. From the moment we met and all the texts and calls leading up to that point, I could tell that I had the right person. She is a consummate professional, eager, diligent, and highly responsive. Knowing that I was dedicated and committed to purchasing a home, she worked with me on that part too. Where most agents would have dropped a person without an instant pre-approval, Lwane stayed the course with me, helped me fix my credit and I was pre-approved within a few short months. And I think within the same day she had set appointments for 3 locations and emailed virtual tours. Lwane Murphy is beyond a realtor; she is a coach, a friend, a teacher, a motivational partner, a credit whiz, and a blessing. Her work ethic is phenomenal and you can tell that this is her passion. She made the home buying process easy when it was hard and a joyful journey. I am forever in gratitude for her service and eager to recommend as many people as I can.
We reached out to Lwane with a quick window of need. She was immediately responsive and provided us options within our budget in the neighborhood we were most interested in living. She scheduled and attended viewings with us and when we found the place we wanted she did an amazing job negotiating on our behalf. She has knowledge of the city and the market. I found her to be honest and no-nonsense. She is a friendly outgoing professional and if was a pleasure to work with her. We have already recommended her to our friends!
Lwane is a delight to work with. She provided me with the best service, listened to what I was looking for, and never derailed from or showed me apartments out of my price range. Without a doubt, I would call on Lwane again and would refer her to anyone looking for a home in NYC.
Lwane commands both a strong sense of character as well as a strong understanding of what is necessary to succeed in her business. She was willing to go the extra mile when I was looking for the right personal/business space to truly fit my needs--and her intelligent research, and desire to serve led me to a place that I am more than happy to be in at the end of the day. She is a credit to any business that she works for, and truly; to anyone who is lucky enough to call her a colleague or a friend.
Working with Lwane was great. The highlight of our experience with her was that she listened to the requirements my wife and I provided. Where other brokers told us we were being unrealistic and tried to show us apartments well outside of our parameters. On the process end of things, once we decided on a place there were no hiccups. We would recommend Lwane as an excellent broker who will accomplish your real estate goals while making the process very enjoyable.
Working with Lwane was a great experience! Hands down one of the best brokers I have met in NYC!
Lwane is always a pleasure to work with, she goes above and beyond to make things happen. She is a great communicator and her professionalism is always there to assure you she gets things done. I'm happy to have met Lwane and will continue to work with her. Lwane adds great value and partnership to projects and deals. Her positive personable approach is always appreciated.
Lwane is a great person to work with. She's honest, helpful, and reassuring. Most importantly, she does her job well. She asked me smart questions about what I was looking for, about what mattered to me, about budget, etc. She really took the time to understand what our practical needs and wants were. I could tell from my conversation that she would be working hard for me. (And she did until the very end.) I was really impressed with her when we went into each apartment. With her experience, she understood what our reactions meant. She also got a feel for the relationship between my roommate and I, such as what was interesting to my roommate vs what was interesting to me. And she asked us directly how we felt about specific things. Bottom line, she really listens and takes action. She has my high recommendation.
