Why choose John Murray?

Selling a property can be an exciting, nervous and exhilarating experience. Whichever way it goes, I’m on hand to help you every step of the way.

I’ll visit you in your property, free of charge, advise you on the best way to market your home to get the best price and help with the correct asking price, based on your own personal circumstances.

After that, I’ll prepare the details and photos and add your property on Rightmove & Zoopla as well as tap into my mailing list of buyers to help you to secure a buyer at the best price possible. I’ll help you with booking viewings, negotiating offers to maximise your price and, as you’d expect from a personal estate agent, we’ll help with seeing the sale all the way through, to the day you hand over the keys.

If you are buying on, I can produce detailed market reports on homes you are interested in viewing, BEFORE you view, so you have excellent knowledge on the property and surrounding area and can make an informed choice if considering placing an offer on it. I will also help you determine the right purchasing price for the property, so you do not pay a penny more than you have to in order to secure it.

Achieving the BEST PRICE in the sale of your home, and helping you secure an onwards purchase at the BEST PRICE for YOU really can generate £1,000s more for you at the end of your moving journey.

Right for the start we found John very approachable, helpful, and professional.He produced an excellent presentation of our property including great photography and a professionally produced video, along with full details of the surrounding areas advantages.He delivered a steady a stream of quality viewings that were not only interested in purchasing but also in a good position to proceed. It was apparent from the reaction of potential buyers that John had saved us all a great deal of time by clearly explaining the key details and advantages of our property.We very much enjoyed working with John and have no hesitation in highly recommending him and his company’s services.

John Murray is simply a superb Estate Agent. My husband and I cannot recommend him highly enough. He is hard-working, highly experienced, knowledgeable, empathic and full of integrity. He is brilliant at marketing and selling properties in the most effective way. Our house move has been a complex, and at times stressful, journey. John has skilfully and compassionately steered us through the many twists and turns and we are now moving to a beautiful new home. Without his intervention the house ‘chain’ would have collapsed. He’s always had our best interests at heart and we can’t thank him enough.

John managed to sell our house very quickly, getting us the price we wanted. He is very professional and friendly.When he came to value the property before we took him on as agent, we found that he was not at all pushy, just confident in what he could do for us.He is easily contactable and responds very quickly to questions and queries.We would use John Murray again.

John sold our last home back in 2009 so, when we wanted to sell our current home, he was the obvious choice.From the initial meeting and valuation to the photos, video tour and the viewing day, John arranged it all seamlessly.He would give us help and advice on, not only the sale of our property, but also on the property we were buying.Any questions or issues we had were dealt with quickly and calmly. We had a roller-coaster journey, none of which was John’s doing, just things that happened along the way and yet he was there to help.Being an independent estate agent also meant that there was no waiting until 9am Monday morning before you could speak to anyone.Things were dealt with as efficiently as possible and if he couldn’t answer our call, he would always phone as soon as he could.We would not hesitate to use John in future and would highly recommend him to anyone considering selling their property. You certainly get what you pay for and more.Thank you John!

My partner and I are first time buyers and didn’t have a lot of knowledge surrounding the house buying process when our offer was accepted. John was exceptional from the very beginning. He explained the whole process to us, letting us know what to expect and when. Additionally, John’s communication has been excellent, keeping us up-to-date with regular updates and how things were progressing. We have both agreed that when it comes to us selling our house, we will undoubtedly use John! Thank you again for all your help.

About Me

Joining the Royal Signals in the British Army aged 16 years, serving throughout the world for 24 years and working my way through every rank it is possible to hold as a soldier, and to then become a Commissioned Officer in the Intelligence Corps, taught me certain life skills and Core Values:

• Honesty

• Integrity

• Trustworthiness

• Pride in a work ethic based upon excellence

• Teamwork

• Going the extra mile

• Others before self!

I have carried these life-skills over into my work as a business-owning estate agent. I fully appreciate that selling your home, for many their most valuable asset, and choosing an Estate Agent they can TRUST to help them do so, is a huge decision. It can be life-changing – either way. Get it right and people move into the DREAM HOME. Get it wrong, and it causes huge amounts of stress, anxiety, heartache and can cost £1,000s in lost professional fees.

Now, with over 19 years’ experience in residential property sales, and renowned for having trained over 500 professional agents throughout England and Wales for two of the country’s largest and most successful independent estate agencies as a Head of Training and Head Coach, I hope you will TRUST me with your home, with your moving aims, hopes, goals and aspirations…TRUST me with your DREAM MOVE.

Outstanding service from John. As the purchaser buying a house, John could not have been more helpful in what can be a stressful process. Totally efficient, always at the end of the phone/email and we wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him. If we were selling our home we would use John Murray with complete confidence. Wonderful service from the fi…


Mr John Murray is the best ever estate agent I have ever come across. He is professional, polite and overall decent man and estate agent. My house was sold (STC) £5K above asking price. You always get the response from Mr Murray. I say this as I have bought two house in UK, sold one. In my opinion most estate agents are ‘pain’. However, Mr Murr…


It will always be a 5* recommendation from us for John Murray. His professionalism, his knowledge, and his cheery outlook on everything kept us going throughout our selling process.

We can’t recommend John highly enough. He is all you would want from an estate agent but so much more than you will get from any of the high street agents. A truly personal service, not only did he sell our house for us, but he also took the time to help us with the purchase of our new home. Thank you John for your dedication, patience and ent…
