About Craig Della Penna, Realtor®
In 2003, I became a realtor with The Murphys Realtors. I focused on a special niche: the sale of houses near to rail trails, greenways, or other conservation lands. This unique real estate practice was recently featured in two national realtor trade magazines, a Boston Globe editorial, an article in the Wall Street Journal, and in United Airlines’ in-flight magazine, Hemispheres.
I am consistently listed among the top performing realtors in the Five-College area of the Pioneer Valley because I bring innovation and creative marketing to the local real estate market. Earlier in the spring of 2013, I had my 5th book come out and also that same spring, a third book came out that featured some aspect of my creative marketing as a case-study.
Because of my demonstrated interest in historic preservation, I am now on Northampton’s Historical Commission and the Board of Historic Northampton, Inc. My real estate practice has reflected this area as well because I’ve sold some of the most dramatic, famous AND historic properties in the Five College area.
