Stella was born in Bogota, Colombia and worked in the hospitality business as the assistant to the general manager of a six 5-star hotel chain in Bogota and Cali, Colombia.

Stella immigrated from Colombia in 2000 and started what became a seventeen-year career as a member of the management team for The Neighborhood Assistance Corporation of America (NACA), which is a nonprofit, community advocacy and homeownership organization.
Recently Stella decided it was time to change her career and spend more time helping people through the home buying and selling process instead of working on financing. She joined her husband of 16 years in his successful real estate practice and is now a part of his team.
Stella is a true people person who gets things done. She has abundant energy and loves a challenge. Although appearing to be new to real estate she has assisted her husband over the years and knows how to get people into the home of their dreams.
She is a member of the Keys to the house organizing committee in Jamaica Plain benefiting HomeStart, Inc., an organization with the mission of preventing and ending homelessness permanently in the Greater Boston Area. Stella is also a member of the Team Pie It Forward for Community Servings since 2012, raising more than $6,500. She and her husband Juan Murray live in Boston. Stella is has served as Member of the Board of Directors and most recently a member of the Finance Committee for Compass Working Capital (“Compass”) a Boston based nonprofit organization that provides savings and financial coaching programs that help families with low incomes to build assets, achieve their financial goals, and become financially secure.
