As the elected Register of Deeds for Suffolk County, I serve the residents of the cities of Boston, Chelsea and Revere, as well as the Town of Winthrop. I live in the Boston neighborhood of Hyde Park with my wife Bridget Simmons Murphy. I am a lifelong resident of Suffolk County, a graduate of Boston Latin School, and a former Boston City Councilor and Council President. In 2017, in my first year as register, the Registry of Deeds recorded over 132,000 documents. The value of the consideration stated on the deeds recorded totaled over $13 billion dollars.
