Murphy's interest in business first came working after school for his father's fire truck repair firm. Murphy obtained his real estate license at 19, and then acquired weRENTboston in 2005. He started weRENTcentralmass in 2008 – becoming the market leader in rentals – and then acquired the city's largest apartment rental agency, Guardian Select. Murphy then launched 7 Hill Property Management to provide services beyond leasing. In 2012 co-funded Stage One Investors to buy delinquent real estate tax and convert it into revenue for municipalities. That same year, he founded Baystate Investment Fund to buy and redevelop real estate.

Building owner Edward Murphy confirmed that the Team Link Gym will move into approximately 5,000 square feet on the second floor of the historic bakery building. Team Link will feature Muay Thai classes, in addition to several other combat sport and strength training lessons.
Widoff's closing in 2015 dealt a major blow to the Worcester and the Canal District neighborhood.
