More About Us

people Who We Are chevron_right

When faced with the tough decisions every real estate developer struggles with, Mid-Ohio Development Corporation has a distinctive advantage at its disposal: four generations worth of construction and development industry wisdom and perspective. Company Founder and Chairman, Herb Murphy, draws on the skills he learned from his father who owned a construction business in Newark, Ohio. Herb's youngest son, Mid-Ohio President, Roney Murphy, applies knowledge and values learned from Herb as he manages the company day-to-day.
Mid-Ohio's pool of experience not only gives them an edge today, it has also seen them through market ups and downs since its founding in 1963, 57 years ago.
Land acquisition and product design are still the aspects of the business Herb most enjoys. My background is engineering, and because of that, I like architecture, he says. Herb works with Mid-Ohio's architects to add extra efficiency to the company's highly-livable floor plans.
The organizations high caliber product is one reason why their total real estate portfolio has experienced significant success. With over 60 employees, Mid-Ohio handles property management and maintenance in-house. They also maintain their own sales staff and brokerage. Although Mid-Ohio builds a mixture of buildings, their main concentration currently is the multi-family rental market. Our properties currently span nine counties across the state of Ohio; Allen, Clark, Fairfield, Franklin, Hancock, Licking, Montgomery, Muskingum and Ottawa counties. We are looking at extending our reach to the western part of the state and aggressively building in the senior housing market says Roney Murphy.
Provide unselfish service, a caring attitude, and a commitment to work hard for our clients, residents, tenants, and employees. To build all our relationships around the values of honesty, integrity, and respect.
As a premier builder, developer and manager of residential, commercial, and industrial properties in Central Ohio, we will continue to focus on outstanding quality, long-lasting value, and open honest communication.
