Testimonials

A happy, carefree second homeowner.

We never have to worry about the house knowing that Phil and his crew are inspecting  the house weekly – or more often if necessary. They anticipate problems before they happen and then take whatever measures necessary to remedy the situation. They take care of any and all needs related to the house – or run personal errands for us while we are away. Any repairs/ remodeling/ landscaping needs are all handled through Proxy. Phil’s engineering and business background permits him to tackle even the most difficult of situations – always with great integrity and professionalism.  We have recommended his company to several other residents in BP and Walnut Cove who now use his services. ” – Wendy W.

Proxy is the jewel in the house management industry.  The people at Proxy are the best.  Proxy is like having added insurance.  Proxy sees to the security of your home while you are not there.  Proxy can also takes care of all your home’s needed maintenance, property related emergencies,  deliveries, repairs, etc.  Proxy is your caretaker when you can’t be there.  The people of Proxy are hard working and trust worthy.  We can’t say enough good things about Phil Murphy and his staff.  You can always count on them.”  – Kim M. – Waukesha, WI

The service that you have provided us over the last 18 months has been exceptional.  The professionalism and integrity that you have shown in taking care of our prized “little piece of paradise” has been much appreciated.  Thanks for everything you have done for us.” – Doug & Janet B., Proctorsville, VT

We arrived today.  As usual you guys exceeded our expectations.  The work performed on our house is extraordinary! Thank you guys for everything you’ve done to coordinate the exception work.  (Mulch, painting, plumbing, the work Sean has done keeping our home safe.)  Honestly we can’t thank you enough.” – John C.

Thanks so much – everything was perfect.  I love the clean windows – it looks amazing.  Also wanted to pass along my compliments to the cleaning crew. They really do a fantastic job.  There were several beds to be made and all look perfect, (including one with a duvet, that while comfortable, is a pain to get it on right.)  All the cushions and pillows are fluffed, the accessories and such are put back where they belong.  It is just a pleasure to come home to such a perfect house.  Please tell them thank you.”  – Julie O. – Mendham, NJ
