When faced with the tough decisions every real estate developer struggles with, Mid-Ohio Development Corporation has a distinctive advantage at its disposal: three 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. Herbs youngest son, Mid-Ohio President, Roney Murphy, applies knowledge and values learned from Herb as he manages the company day-to-day.

Mid-Ohios 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, 50 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-Ohios architects to add extra efficiency to the companys highly-livable floor plans.

The organizations high caliber product is one reason why their total real estate portfolio has experienced significant success. With 75 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. We are currently constructing multiple communities in Franklin, Licking, Clark and Muskingum counties along with a new project starting in Findlay, Ohio in Hancock County. 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.

Recently Mid-Ohio has introduced a new program for qualified investors to partner with them in constructing and owning its senior housing properties in certain areas.
