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 18 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.

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.

We sell all types of property, and because I’m powered by eXp UK, I don’t have to worry about the technology or property portals, allowing me to concentrate on what I do best, which is to sell houses.

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.
