Meet The ModMansions Team

Our "Customer First" Mentality

Created in 2009, ModMansions consists of 10 luxury vacation homes where the emphasis is on you. Whereas competitive properties merely tell you how to pick up your keys, we personally welcome you into our homes, showing you how everything works. From Wi-Fi passwords to turning on the Jacuzzi to working the TV, we convert your stay into a forever memory.

Jim Murphy

Jim Murphy / Hal Keasler

Designer of Homes (that Feel Like Home)

ModMansions is spearheaded by owner Jim Murphy and his publicity-shy partner and husband, Hal. With a degree in engineering from Central Connecticut State University, a master’s in architecture and business from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, and Executive Program degrees from Stanford and Cornell, Jim combines theory with practice to build homes that feel like home.

A Palm Spring resident himself, Murph understands the lure of the desert: hot breezes, warm nights, and a cool vibe. A fave oasis for the Rat Pack in the 1960s, today's city boasts midcentury modern architecture, golf courses galore, movie festivals, and fine dining.
