James Mulhall

Managing Director

Previously James was Head of Office Agency in CBRE, leaving in 2009 to establish Murphy Mulhall, where he has been Managing Director ever since. The Office market has been his core focus since 1998 and he has earned an enviable reputation as an expert in problem solving and due diligence on deals. 

Since 2016, his primary focus has been on working exclusively with occupiers, helping them find space, negotiating leases, assisting with fit-out and utilities, and providing “hands-on” support throughout the legal phase of the transactions. It is his job to take the stress out of the process, allowing the client to focus on growing their businesses, knowing that they are in safe hands.

James believes the combination of versatility, energy and independence Murphy Mulhall offers, is truly unique in the Irish marketplace. As one client put it: “They simply care more about the outcome”.

Robert Murphy


Robert spent a very productive 7 x years working in Commercial Real Estate in San Francisco. As he says, a market in which the agent’s income is directly dependent on the deals they complete, focuses the mind, making you more determined and tenacious.

On his return in 2001, Robert joined CBRE where he specialised in Tenant Representation, before moving into investment, focusing largely on acquisition. Today, as a specialist in the Irish investment market, having built up considerable experience in advising on large, individual and portfolio sales for private investors, institutions, and property funds – indigenous and international.

For Robert, Murphy Mulhall’s key strengths are in the relationships we maintain and the people we hire. He believes in maintaining a balance between independent thinking and being a team player. “We support each other because our common goal is to achieve the best results for our clients”.
