Real estate is a key component of any balanced investment portfolio, typically outpacing inflation while providing insulation from volatility — often with the added bonus of rental income! The OMG Real Estate team can help find the property that helps meet your financial goals.

Our Story

Stephen Murphy travelling
1985 - 1997

With over 25 years of experience in the hospitality industry and commercial real estate, Stephen M. Murphy has owned over 25 independent restaurants, building sales from scratch and further profiting from the sale of these businesses. Moving on to become president of a successful restaurant management company, he was entrusted for his consulting & restaurant management services, and continues to act as a real estate consultant for landlords & trustees to this day.

1997 - Present

In 1997, Stephen identified a gap in the commercial real estate field relating to the particular needs of restaurateurs: restaurant sales were being conducted by the same agents whose primary focus was residential real estate. It just didn’t make sense! Stephen emerged as a pioneer and leader in hospitality real estate in Canada, and maintains his reputation as a top producer as he mentors a new generation of hospitality-specific realtors. In the birth of OMG Real Estate, Stephen’s next challenge is to focus on commercial & investment real estate, while participating in the negotiation of sales and leases with his team.

Sales Representative

With over 25 years of experience in the hospitality industry and commercial real estate, Stephen M. Murphy has owned over 25 independent restaurants, building sales from scratch and further profiting from the sale of these businesses. Moving on to become President of a successful Restaurant Management Company, he was entrusted for his consulting & restaurant management services, and continues to act as a real estate consultant for Landlords & Trustees to this day.

15 Years ago, Stephen identified a gap in the commercial real estate field relating to the particular needs of restaurateurs; restaurant sales were being conducted by the same agents whose primary focus was residential real estate. It just didn’t make sense! Stephen emerged as a pioneer and leader in Hospitality Real Estate in Canada, and maintains his reputation as a top producer as he mentors a new generation of hospitality-specific Realtors. In the birth of OMG Real Estate, Stephen’s next challenge is to focus on Commercial & Investment Real Estate, while participating in the negotiation of sales and leases with his team.

From his first sale – Susur Lee’s famed “Lotus” Restaurant, Stephen’s focus and advice have continued to drive success in restaurant sales for his clients and their families. By establishing long term relationships resulting in growth and prosperity, Stephen currently represents a number of national franchise groups as well as independent boutique hotspots. His experience, affiliations and insight continue to steer business owners to locations that will encourage their future success. Stephen can be called on to offer expertise in location procurement, sale & lease negotiations, franchising, investment purchases or simply to offer good advice and common sense in an already challenging industry. In recent years Stephen has built up an extensive Real Estate Investor portfolio and he welcomes your Commercial and Investment Real Estate inquiries.

Sales Representative

Commenced my Real Estate career in 1977 and for 17 years marketed primarily residential homes.

I Spent 5 years specializing as the Broker/Manager representing one of Toronto’s most well known and prestigious builders “Shane Baghai”. We designed, built and sold luxury multi-million dollar homes, town homes and condominiums to a diverse client base. I successfully secured a Broker licence which resulted in owning and operating 2 Real Estate Brokerages over the course of my career.

Changing direction I joined a boutique Real Estate organization located in Yorkville to focus on commercial real estate. For over 17 years I have established the reputation of being a professional in the commercial arena of real estate.

My extensive professional knowledge, vast experience and contacts in commercial real estate will be a positive contribution to OMG. My success is derived from being a sincere caring agent who has always given 110% with every client. My clients attest to my commitment to their real estate needs.

One of my distinct competitive advantages is that I constantly have an extensive portfolio of available properties for sale and lease in the GTA. Noteworthy deals include the recent location for The South African African Embassy, the sale and lease of numerous retail stores and office spaces plus industrial sales and leases. 

My experience also includes the sales of apartment buildings and multi unit residential buildings. Last year alone I sold 3 multi- million dollar plazas in the GTA.

I am passionate about meeting the needs of both the landlord/tenant and seller/buyer to ensure a successful outcome. My main goal is to establish and maintain an ongoing long term relationship with my clients.
