Read what others are saying about Rob Murray

Listed and sold our home


Rob was amazing every step of the way. He met with us months before we went on the market to advise us how best to prep our home for sale. His advice was spot on, helping us to spruce up and stage our home to best effect. His promotional materials are beautiful, and generated a lot of interest in our home. His sales strategy worked exactly as he planned (and said it would): we had numerous offers the first weekend, and ended up selling it at a great price to a buyer who loves our home. Rob always responds quickly to questions (large and small). He is extremely knowledgeable and really understands the market. I can't recommend him highly enough! Mark & Amy Wrathall


Outstanding Realtor!


With a fairly upscale home we wanted someone who truly understood the market and had a concrete plan to sell our property in a reasonable amount of time. Not only did Rob have a great plan but he had at his disposal an impressive bag of tools to use. The online video tour of our home he and his associates created was simply amazing. He ensured maximum visibility by listing the home on various online sites as well as doing direct mailings and holding an open house. The average time for a home like ours to be on the market before it sold was two to three months. Ours sold in three weeks! Throughout the process Rob was always available to answer whatever questions we had. His wealth of knowledge and experience in the Riverside housing market is simply outstanding. He truly works with you not just for you. Steve & Mary Cowett


10 Stars!!!


I hope my review does justice to the superb service that I got from Rob Murray and I'd give him 10 stars if I could. I had a small condo, but I was treated like I had a million dollar home! From the start Rob was very professional and informative. He paid attention to the smallest details and all of my questions were answered honestly. I ended up selling my condo for much more than the asking price and we actually set a record price for my complex!! I owe that all to Rob. The virtual tour that was uploaded to the web was exceptional. He communicates constantly with his clients and there was never an email, text or call that wasn't promptly answered. I hear folks tell me that their homes have been on the market for months without an offer, and I got multiple offers for full price the first weekend it went up for sale! If you are looking for a realtor that will work hard for you & is very knowledgeable, look no further than Rob Murray. I wouldn't think of using anyone else if I ever needed the services of a good realtor in the future. Cynthia Frasco


True Professionalism


"When confronted with many choices for realtors in my area, i had but three criteria for selecting a realtor: knowledge of the local market, connections within the real estate sector, and willingness to work with me and my specific needs. Rob Murray fit the bill on all three counts and was able to flawlessly bring qualified buyers to the table. In fact, i received multiple offers only a few days after the first showing! He negotiated with the various buyers and their realtors and kept me from having to jump into the hurly-burly. That's true professionalism!" Greg Yoshida


THANK YOU ROB!


Rob is the man! This was our 2nd time using Rob Murray for our real estate needs. The 1st time was as buyers. He got us the house we wanted for the price we wanted. This time, a few years later, he helped us sell our other home. Not only did he get it sold quickly he got us more for the house than we were even expecting!! The house needed some fine tuning before putting it on the market. He walked the house with us, gave us his opinion on what to change, and provided us with names of vendors that would be able to do the repairs. All of the vendors he referred were great to work with and most importantly budget friendly! It was his expertise and local knowledge that got it sold for us. We can't thank Rob and his team enough. He really is the best choice you can make when it comes to selling or buying a home. Thanks again Rob! Brian & Heather Bartle


Cream Of The Crop Realtor!


When looking for a Realtor to sell my home I went online and compared reviews. Rob stood out from the rest in the number of reviews and their content. After meeting with him I was very impressed, he was straightforward about the process, answered all my questions so I hired him to sell my home. He made repair and upgrading recommendations and referred affordable contractors to do the work. His photographer took fabulous pictures and created a killer virtual tour. His recommended listing price was higher than my expectation and to my surprise after the first weekend we had multiple offers. Rob was able to get buyers to compete with each other and we ended up getting $10,000 over the asking price! From start to finish he kept me informed and was always easy to get ahold of. Rob is the cream of the crop, best of the best and I would never consider hiring anyone but him! Ray Uren


Dedication To Professionalism


I recently purchased a triplex in Downtown Riverside and I truly believe that my offer would not have been accepted without Rob. Rob provided me with crucial guidance on how to structure my offer in order to have the best chance of having it accepted with terms that I still felt comfortable with. After my offer was accepted, Rob ensured that the due diligence process went as smoothly as possible and that all deadlines were met. Rob was extremely responsive throughout the entire process and was always happy to provide me with his thoughtful insights and guidance every step of the way. Rob's dedication to his profession and clients is immediately apparent when you work with him. This, combined with the very large volume of deals that he has closed, means that you will get excellent, responsive service from a real estate professional who seriously knows his stuff. Work with Rob and you will be glad you did.  RJ Waltz


6 out of 5 stars


Rob was absolutely amazing. When he first came to our home, he was very low key and unassuming, but he instilled a sense of trust. He advised us as to how to increase the appeal of our home (new interior paint, carpet, and kitchen counters). We did the improvements we discussed and our home was listed on a Thursday. Rob arranged for us to have an open house on the following Saturday and Sunday, by Tuesday, we had 6 offers. Five of the six were above our asking price. Rob was extremely professional and attentive. He answered our calls immediately or responded to our texts within a few minutes. He kept us informed throughout the process. Everything he predicted was correct, whether it was the listing price or which was the best offer to accept. I will definitely recommend Rob and his team to friends and family. I only wish I could give him 6 stars.

Five Stars - Highly Recommend


We listed our house for sale with rob and it went in escrow within three weeks of listing at close to our asking price. He promoted the house in best possible light- the pictures, aerial images, description and website were excellent and very professionally done. He also advertised in the local newspaper to get maximum exposure and publicity to the open houses. We were very pleased with his services and would recommend him whole heartedly.  Achinta & Achala Chatterjee

Best realtor we have ever worked with


I came across Rob Murray's name on a sign from a nearby home for sale. I called him after having waited for another local realtor to get back to me for over a week about possibly listing my home. I left Rob a message on his voicemail and received a call within the hour. I was very impressed. We scheduled a meeting and he arrived at my home when he said he would. I listed my home and then had to put everything on HOLD due to extenuating circumstances. We later decided to stay in our home and I must say that Rob was genuinely concerned about our situation and not upset that we stopped everything. We have bought several properties in the last 25 years, but Rob Murray is the Best Realtor we have ever worked with. Janice Lance


Highly Recommend


Mr. Murray was the perfect real estate agent for our needs. The house we were selling had been a rental for quite some time. He was able to advise us on the minimum investment in improvements for the maximum gain. And better yet he had the connections for getting the work done, well. I didn't want to make decisions and I didn't have to. Another thing I like about Mr. Murray is that he is straight forward without the feeling you are being sold. He listens to what is important to you and gives you his perspective and then you go from there. Our house sold quickly and the process was much easier than expected. C. Price


Expert Listing Broker


I obtained Mr Murray's information through zillow and decided to list with him since he had outstanding reviews. I am happy to say that he lived up to his reviews and my expectations. He is very responsive, driven and knowledgeable. Moreover, even though Rob has his own brokerage, he was the one that personally did all the work and made all the communications. Specifically I was able to reach him by text or phone any time during the day. Also, Rob gave detailed explanations on every procedure of the transaction and gave me his expert advice on strategy (specifically how to proceed with multiple offers). Overall I had a very smooth transaction and did not even need to meet with him to complete it. I would highly recommend Rob to anyone who wants to sell their property.  Vardan Balayan


Wonderful!


Rob and I first met at an open house 6 years ago, and in that time, was a sounding board, advisor, and at last, my realtor for my house on Hampshire. It was a complicated sale, and I also had to find a replacement home, and he was the perfect choice for the job. His expertise proved itself when we won the bid on a house with over 15 offers. His advise, though sometimes I didn't understand it at the time, proved to be sound and wise. He was always attentive, professional and kind. His assistant was also so helpful during both transactions and I never felt like any question or concern was too small or unimportant. I highly recommend Rob to anyone, for his expertise in difficult or simple real estate transactions. He was wonderful! Ann Camacho


Five Star Job!


Rob Murray did a wonderful job with selling my home in Riverside, ca. From the time I meet him he was on the job doing everything from a redo on the interior to new landscaping. He made my job of selling the home a lot easier since I lived in San Diego, ca. My hat is off to Rob for doing a great job . Five star job! Bruce Schultz


HIGHEST POSSIBLE RECOMMENDATION


Rob made my escrow a fun and enjoyable exerience! He made it painless and stress free which is very important! He is the most professional man I have ever worked with and his team is fast, efficient, professional and responded to me immediately through the entire process. I promise if you go to someone else you will regret it- Rob Murray has so much knowledge and experience- he will have your back and answer every question fully until you understand. That is huge for me- I couldnt recommend anyone more and I dont usually recommend anyone! And I dont usually write reviews but in this case- I wanted people to hear the truth about my experience. EXCELLENT and FAST! Trena Johnson


Sold Our Home For More Than Expected


My husband and I sold our Perris, CA home with Rob, and also bought our next Riverside, CA home with him. When we sat down with him to discuss selling our Perris house, Rob wowed us instantly. He gave us his honest opinion regarding the home value, and his listing price suggestion was based on very good research he had done in the area. He made us aware that no matter your sale price, the appraisal decides everything. Rob had an unbelievable photographer take listing photos, and they looked fantastic. Rob made the selling and showing process extremely easy for us to accommodate. He is very easy to get a hold of. Rob worked extremely hard, and we did better than we ever could have expected on our home sale. When looking for homes, Rob was extremely helpful giving us information on particular Riverside neighborhoods. When the sale of our home was solid, we found the perfect house, and Rob did a great job of making our offer attractive, since we were contingent buyers. It was a tricky deal because it was a pocket listing (Rob also represented the seller), and our offer was submitted before it was put on the market. Rob told us he would do everything he could, and we couldn't have been more pleased with the deal he negotiated. My husband and I are both teachers, and we were worried about the stress of closing and moving once school started. We were able to synchronize the closing of both properties very well thanks to Rob, and we are now in an unbelievable house that checks everything off our wish-lists! Throughout this entire process, my husband and I felt that Rob always had our best interest in mind. He worked quickly and professionally, and we are unbelievably grateful for all of his hard work. I am so thankful that our friends recommended him to us, and we will ABSOLUTELY be doing the same!

Real Estate Expert!


I had full confidence in Rob Murray as he expertly managed every aspect of the sale process. Even though the home we were offering for sale was more humble than most, Rob gave it his full attention, and when some local problems arose that required quick response, he was there to handle them. I am pleased with his advice, how he guided me through the whole (at times confusing) process, and his quick response to my emails, texts, and phone calls. Without reservation, I would recommend Rob Murray to anyone planning to buy or sell a home. Sherinda Scherer

Helped with Relocation - Highly Recommend


We are currently living in San Jose and looking for a beautiful home in Riverside to retire where we came from. Rob Murray helps us making that comes true. We believe we bought a wonderful house with Rob's help, even though we live far away. Also because we do not plan to move a lot of furniture from San Jose, Rob help negotiate that the sellers leave valuable furniture inside and outside the house for us which save us a lot of money when we move into the house. Bich Huynh


Goes the extra mile


Rob is very knowledgeable and has helped me acquire properties in Riverside county. Impressive local knowledge, responsiveness, negotiation skills and has a tremendous amount of experience when it comes to real estate. It's very important to me that an agent always come to viewings prepared and Rob never disappoints. Rob always came prepared, on time and is willing to take the extra mile to get things done. He updates me every step of the way and just makes the entire process easy and smooth. That's what separates Rob from other agents in my book. Freddie Tan


Highly Recommend


Rob’s online reviews were excellent so I decided to interview him to sell my home. When we first met Rob gave fabulous ideas on things I could do to improve the desirability of my home without spending a lot of money. He was always available to answer my questions and kept me well informed from start to finish. I was particularly impressed with his marketing presentation, professional pictures and description of my home. His recommended listing price turned out to be spot on and we closed the sale quickly. Rob is true professional and strong negotiator, I HIGHLY recommend him!

A Realtor You Can Trust


When my wife and I decided to sell our home in California while living in Tennessee, we were both very nervous and stressed out in dealing with the process. We knew that after 5 years of renting the house out it would have needed some renovations. We needed a realtor who we could absolutely trust in making practically all the decisions with little guidance. After searching for a realtor over 2 weeks, I came across Rob's profile on Zillow gave him a call and asked him a few questions. From the first phone call to the last, Rob helped us from renovating to selling our home in a very timely matter. Honestly, we didn't expect our home to list and close within 34 days. If there's someone you can trust, believe me it's Rob. Richard Santana


100% Recommend


When considering Realtors we read Rob’s reviews and after interviewing everyone, we went with him. He was always prompt, easy to reach and sold our home over the list price in a week! 100% recommend! Ray U.


Fully Recommend To Sell Your Home


Rob is very knowledgeable throughout every step of the transaction. His team as well as the agencies he selected to support the transaction are all very effective. His suggestions on the pricing, on the upgrades, and on the negotiation with the buyer are all right on the marks. In addition to his strong professional abilities, he is also very friendly and easy to talk to. By following his guidance, the property was sold within very short period of time and with a very good price. Fully recommended. Alex Chang


Listed and sold our home


Rob was very easy to work with and readily available when needed. When the right offer came, the transaction was completed seamlessly. His responsiveness and integrity thru out the process, and even after closing, makes it easy to recommend him. Rob Martinez


Top Notch Professional


Rob is a top-notch professional. Out of 5 stars, I would give Rob a rating of 10 stars! He listened to what I wanted, walked me through the entire home buying process, and always gave excellent advice. He is extremely honest, knowledgeable, and experienced. He thoroughly explained everything and anticipated my needs -- many times answering my questions before I asked! Rob's expertise and exceptional customer service made this an absolutely stress-free experience. This is the second transaction Rob has handled for me and I will go back to him a hundred more times. Thank you Rob! TJ & Kelly Leroy


WILL EXCEED YOUR EXPECTATIONS


This is my second time working with Robert Murray-he has previously helped me purchase a home in 2013 and I knew I wanted to list my home with him as well. The entire process was smooth from beginning to end: was able to sell my home $5k over the asking price and ended escrow on time! He never forgets to keep you updated and informed during the process and always makes you feel like you matter. I highly recommend Robert Murray for any real estate business whether buying or selling because he will exceed your expectations! Alina Lupescu


6 Star Rating


Although this site only allows a maximum five star rating, Rob Murray truly deserves six stars. He went above and beyond our expectations in the selling of our home. Initially, Rob impressed us with his excellent description of our house in the listing. Then he amazed us when he used his expertise to accurately predict the market value of our home, right to the dollar. Rob had such a confidence in the selling of our house, every time he engaged a realtor. Throughout this endeavor, he took every phone call and responded to us in a timely fashion. He made himself available to answer even our smallest concerns. All in all, Rob Murray is a true professional, and very down to Earth. From the moment he sat down with us, and laid out his plan to sell our home, we knew we were in good hands. We highly recommend Rob and his company Murray Real-estate. Brian & Cindy Bordash


Excellent Job Selling Our Family Home


Rob and his team did an excellent job from start to finish. This was an extremely difficult situation as the home had to be sold by the family from a distance (we live in St. Louis and the home was in Riverside, CA). Rob's team handled all the transactions required, without us having to fly back to Riverside. This was a godsend for the family and shows how trustworthy and honest Rob is. Could not have worked any better for us. Great job! Jerry Caruso


RECOMMEND FOR MULTI FAMILY PROPERTIES


We found Rob's profile on Zillow because we were looking for a local Riverside broker who could help us in the sale of our duplex in the downtown area. The property was in a bad state of disrepair and would need patience and expertise to sell. After 4 months on the market and 3 failed offers, Rob finally navigated the sale of the property without a hitch. I highly recommend him to anyone selling a MF or SF property in the Riverside area and we will definitely use him again if the opportunity arises. Jerry & Mindy Flanagan


Got us top dollar for our home


Rob and his team were great for the sale of my house! They got everything in line and Rob was with us every step of the way advising on the whole process and what we should be doing to ensure we got the best price for our house! Everything went smoothly and we sold our house in no time. I would highly recommend Murray RE for both buying and selling a house. He answered all our questions and was very quick to respond to all communications. Anita Lin


Thanks Rob!


I don’t know if there are enough words to describe how blessed we were to be connected with Robert Murray. His commitment and knowledge based truly defines a "home buyer advocate."

Rob was patient and understanding through our year long process of finding and purchasing a home. We stumbled upon a house in the beginning stages of being rehabbed. In his great wisdom, Rob saw this as an opportunity for us to request some involvement in the process when writing our offer. As a result, we were able to pick out various finishes, such as carpet, bathroom flooring, and countertops.

During the escrow process Rob remained diligent to answer all of our numerous questions around the clock. He always had our best interest in mind as he wanted us to be happy with the outcome of the rehab. Additionally, Rob advocated for us to receive what was fair in terms of the quality and work that was done. Even after closing escrow Rob communicated with the seller to correct a few issues that were found that should have been completed prior.

Having dealt with other realtors, working with Rob was reassuring and refreshing. As long as Rob is in real estate, we will be using him and referring anyone we know who is looking to purchase a home. His integrity and commitment are not commonly found in any industry. Thanks Rob for sticking by our side and helping our family start a new chapter. We will be eternally be grateful for the person you are and the high standard by which you conduct your business.

Robert is an excellent agent - he has a great deal of patience and really wants his clients to have the home they truly want and can afford. He knows Riverside inside and out and is a terrific negotiator. He also responds to e-mails, texts and phone calls promptly and enthusiastically. I highly recommend Robert as an agent. He did a fantastic job for us! Albe & Stacey


Sold a house & bought a house through Rob


I was recommended by a friend to use Rob and it was one of the best recommendations I have ever had. He handled both the sale of our old and purchase of our new properties and throughout he was professional, responsive (always replying to voicemails and emails very quickly - if not immediately), highly knowledgeable of the local market (his valuations on both properties were spot-on) and extremely reliable (on-time for every appointment we scheduled). I cannot understand why anyone looking to buy or sell in the Riverside area would choose anyone other than Rob to represent them and we have already referred multiple people to him.  Gordon & Emily Mason


First Time Home buyer - Thanks Rob!


We bought our first house last May in 2016 and our experience with Rob was outstanding. He negotiated everything we needed to make the buy and always came back to us with good news after a minor contingency. I recommend Rob to anyone who is looking to buy or sell because he has all the experience needed to make or close the deal. Thanks again Rob we are very happy with our home. RJ Vasquez


Highly Recommend


Rob is a top realtor. Handled everything very calmly and with a professional attitude. Gave us a good, and then proven accurate after an appraisal, estimated value and delivered a closed escrow in two months. Handled every detail including a few acts of nature we could not predict - even loaned us his vacuum cleaner when ours broke. We would choose him again and highly recommend to others. Rob does not push you, the seller, nor you, the buyer. He negotiates intelligently and fairly looking out for both parties - everyone felt a good and fair deal was negotiated.  Susan Hackwood


Extraordinary Real Estate Professional


How do you spell extraordinary real estate professional? R-O-B-E-R-T M-U-R-R-A-Y Mr. Murray has worked with us on two recent transactions and we can truly say that both experiences were excellent. Robert Murray is a local Riverside native and his knowledge and perspective about the community is second to none. He also brings to the table his many years as an independent broker as well as his background in the mortgage company business. These highly valuable skills Robert has honed, round out the experience to be a calm and peaceful one. Robert was always available when we called him and he made sure that everything was taken care of at all times. His attention to detail is top notch. We recommend Mr. Murray to anyone interested in buying or selling a home and we know that you will be very pleased. Again, we cannot say enough about this professional and now friend and we are thrilled that we got to know Mr. Murray.

Professional and Effective


I was responsible for selling my late mother's vacant house in Riverside. I live outside of the area and have no local connections, so I was, "flying blind", when selecting a realtor. I did extensive research online and also drove around the general area to see who was listing houses for sale. I invited a dozen realtors to inspect the house and prepare a written analysis of market value and a recommended listing price. I then interviewed 5 of the realtors. It came down to a choice between 3 of the realtors, all of whom seemed to be very good. I selected Rob and it turned out to be a good decision. Rob was very effective all aspects of the sale and, "took charge", while at the same time keeping me closely informed. Rob worked well with the buyer's agent and even presented some financing options when a glitch developed with the buyer's loan approval. If I had to use only two words to describe Rob's performance, they would be, "professional", and, "effective".  Don Smith


Amazing Experience


The most amazing experience working with Rob Murray. This is my 2nd time putting my home on the market. This by far is what everyone should expect during a selling process. Rob was always available for questions and help in every moment of this process. I would also like to mention his secretary Nicole she was also a major part of this sale. She was always in contact with me and made my experience joyful. Angellee Bloodworth


Excellent Realtor


Rob Murray showed excellent realtor skills in negotiating the offer, counter offers, document signing process and handling buyer requests. He knows the Riverside market well and was very responsive. I would definitely recommend him as an agent. John Joecken


Thank you Rob!


I first met Rob when I was buying a house. I decided to go with a short sale, even though I've heard about all the things that could go wrong with a short sale from family and friends. However, Rob was different from other realtors. He was very knowledgeable, professional, and confident. He answered all my inquiries in a timely manner, and his expertise with the real estate market was impeccable. I felt very assured and confident to proceed with my short sale transaction with Rob. The short sale went very well, and I now own my dream home. Thanks to Rob's excellent negotiation skills and attention to details, every step of the sale was smooth and accurate. I was amazed at how wonderful this short sale turned out for me. Thank you Rob, for helping me through every step of the way. This is more than just a house, this is also a future and a dream for me and my family. Katherine Koh


Sold our home fast!


Rob told us to be ready to move once we listed our home and he wasn't just saying that to get the listing. Our home of 23 years sold within in 5 days for more than we expectected. Rob kept us in the loop the entire time and always returned calls and answered our questions promptly. His calm demeanor was an additional asset. You won't be sorry for selecting him if you chose to sell your home.  Patrick & Maria Titus


Love, love, love Rob Murray!


We just recently closed escrow on the home of our dreams and I can say without a doubt that it wouldn't have been possible without Rob’s expertise and experience and the dedication that he shows his clients. We must have spoken with five or six realtors going into the home buying process—in addition to the numerous referrals from friends and family—but it was clear from our first phone conversation with Rob that he was our guy.

Rob cares about his clients—he’s definitely not about just a quick commission. He’s as honest and he works hard. We must have looked at two dozen homes throughout the home buying process--almost all on the first day of being listed and many without the first few hours of hitting the market. Rob was always available each and every time, often with no more than thirty minutes notice. If we sent him an email we’d have a response in minutes. If we called him at 10pm he’d answer (which we tried not to do albeit once or twice!). He couldn’t have been any more accessible and responsive.

He knows Riverside well—the neighborhoods, the history, the architectural styles, etc.—and that was important to us because we were looking for an older home with some character and a story to it. His experience as a general contractor was invaluable too. Many of the homes that we looked at had been investor owned, “flip” properties and we could always count on Rob to share his insights into the quality of the workmanship, any potential red flags, etc., whenever we asked. Again, he’s not just trying to close a quick sale—he wants you to get the right home; a home that you will love. Most importantly, when it came time to landing the house we wanted, Rob’s negotiating skills and 25 years of experience gave us a fighting chance in a market characterized by low inventory, and heavy, heavy competition. As first-time homebuyers with FHA financing buying a house right now seems almost impossible and I’m confident that, had we gone with any other realtor, we’d still be looking. That, or we’d have certainly ended up with a much less of a house!  Thanks again Rob for everything!

We recently purchased our dream home in Riverside and had the pleasure of working with Rob, who has assisted us in purchasing two properties over the past two years. He has always been up front, honest, patient and knowledgeable about the real estate market. Furthermore, he is extremely responsive when fielding calls and email requests. We would highly recommend (and have, numerous times) anyone considering buying or selling a home in the area giving Rob a call.  Tom & Jill Erlandson


Listed Home


Rob Murray was everything we'd hoped for in a real estate agent and more. Personable, knowledgeable, highly professional, easy going but prompt and efficient.

He was very helpful with getting the property ready to sell. All of our questions and requests were promptly answered. He was respectful of our time and facilitated efficient procedures for processing required documents.

From our first introduction through close of escrow, we could not have asked for better service.

I had a investment property that I wanted to sell in Riverside, so I contacted Rob. He was available to meet me at the property right away, took photos and put it on the MLS that night. He showed it that weekend and I received two nice offers by the end of the weekend. I picked one and he sent all the paperwork by email for me to sign. I have a check in my hand for the proceeds of the sale and its been about three weeks from start to finish. The speed of the escrow had a lot to do with the buyer, but I would have to say that Rob is right on top of everything and takes care of any issues in a timely manner. He's very experienced and has lots of connections within the industry, but the best thing is that he answers his phone or gets back to you fast, which I appreciate. Do yourself a favor and pick Rob as your agent. Alisa Ice

Rob Murray is the most professional, informed and caring Real Estate agent that we have ever worked with. Our situation was very unique and it was such a comfort to have such an experienced agent that clearly was able to navigate our needs with such professionalism! Rob was so on top of absolutely every detail. I can't say enough wonderful things about Rob! WE HIGHLY RECOMMEND Rob Murray!!!! David & Lisa Hirst


Highly recommend - sold our home


Rob was extremely helpful and professional throughout our experience selling our home. He ended up saving us quite a bit of money by navigating a negotiation issue that would have cost us thousands without his intervention. The house sold quickly and he was spot on with the asking price. Very polite and professional; definitely seemed to know what he was doing. It was comforting to know we had someone with so much experience when it came down to the final deal. I highly reccomd him. John Carter


Very Professional


Very professional, always on time, good negotiator, extremely knowledgeable and he listens. Buying process went very smooth and Rob was always on top of everything.  Freddie Tan


Thank You Rob!


We are very pleased with our home purchase experience with Rob Murray. After two other agents failed to address our needs with any seriousness, Rob gave us excellent attention and we found exactly what we were looking for. He was respectful and patient and did everything that we could have hoped for from a real estate professional and more. We are completely satisfied with our home purchase and honestly believe it may not have happened if it were not for his particular assistance. Thank you Rob!  Bill & Pam Dettman


Very Impressed!


My wife and I were very impressed with the work Rob Murray did on selling our house in Riverside in record time and at the price we were asking. We recommend him highly. C. Douglas Fowler DDS


Short Sale Recommendation


Rob helped us short sale our house and walked us through the whole process. We had some issues come up along the way, but he advised us and help us negotiate the sale with our lenders. Rob is professional, detail oriented, and responsive. I would recommend him for anyone selling and especially if you need someone to help you with a short sale. Thanks again Rob for all your hard work! Paul F.


Knows the housing market - Highly recommend


Rob Murray stands well above most realtors. He knows the competitive housing market and is honest in his overall estimate of the value of your property. Upon entering into escrow, Rob was always available for all discussions and questions. He was very positive with the buyer and seller, working close with both which showed his compentency in negotiating. I would highly recommend Rob Murray to find or sell your perfect home and guide you through the difficult channels of selling or purchasing a home in the Riverside area.
Jean Richland


Our Realtor of choice


I would like everyone to enjoy the real estate purchase as I have with Mr. Rob Murray. From the first contact we had to the signing of the escrow paperwork Rob has been absolutely wonderful. He was available to answer questions day and night and believe me we had plenty. Have was not only the listing agent for our new property but is now our realtor of choice for all our realty dealings from now on. The home buying task is truly a life changing event for anyone and I highly recommend Rob's no pressure approach to put the buyer at ease. We now live in the house of our dreams and I thank Rob for making it possible. I not only reccomend Rob as a realtor but I also now consider him a trusted friend of myself and family. Thank you for your time.

Sincerely: Kyle G. Esgate


Friendly, Smart & Helpful


We couldn't have chosen a better Realtor. Rob was on it from the beginning! Friendly, smart and extremely helpful. He made our home buying experience easy and smooth. He referred us to our Lender Jacob Brown with Provident Bank and between the both of them our experience was awesome! Me and my husband will refer any and all of our friends and family to Rob and Jacob. Thank you again for everything Rob!  Cathy Roa


Thanks Rob!


Rob was wonderful! He negotiated with the sellers on our behalf and because of that we got the home we loved at the price we wanted. I am a first time home buyer so he was patient and thorough when explaining the process. He was on time for our appointments, called when he said he would, followed up with our lender to ensure escrow closed on time, and even gave us a bottle of wine on the day we got the keys! Hopefully we wont be on the market for a new house for a long time but when we are we will be reaching out to him for his expertise again. Thanks Rob! Heather Greenan


Very Pleased - Highly Recommend


We were very pleased to have chosen Rob Murray as our realtor. He knew the market well and gave great advice. When some issues arose during escrow he was on top of every situation. Would highly recommend Rob to anyone in need of a real estate agent.  Steve Fiori


Very Impressed!


Robert Murray is an Independent Broker and Real Estate Agent who helped us buy a home and is also currently helping us sell a home. Robert is a Riverside, CA native and is extremely knowledgeable about the areas he represents. Robert is sensitive, not pushy, listens and hears the buyer and seller. He goes above and beyond and is masterful in putting together the best scenario and transaction possible. He is trustworthy, available, prompt and always willing to make adjustments when necessary. Robert will make sure that the customer is satisfied and he cares about the people he represents. We have been very impressed with Mr. Murray and his professionalism and highly recommend him to anyone interested in buying or selling a home. Yutaka & Nancy Kishino


Highly Recommend Rob


From the moment we met Rob we liked him. He never was pushy and was always willing to show us whatever homes we wanted to see and trust me we were all over the place. Rob was always so helpful on explaining to us the process of putting in an offer and when it came to getting a loan he helped us finding a loan officer that was also wonderful to deal with. We would highly recommend Rob to anyone buying a home... And will definitely use him again down the road. TJ & Kelly Leroy


Ultimate Professional


Rob is the ultimate professional. In a marketplace where so many real estate representatives are short-term, sloppy and have bad inter-personal skills, Rob is the opposite. He's been in the profession for many years, commuicates very well with all parties (not just the ones he's representing), and follows through on every detail of the transaction. His open house skills are highly regarded and he puts potential buyers at ease with his professional delivery and presentation. Rob is not easily rattled and seems to enjoy meeting challenges that inevitably occur during the purchase and/or sale of a property. He inspires confidence, responds quickly and seems to like what he does. He's a pro - we highly recommend him to anyone considering purchasing or selling a property.

James & Jacqui Hutchison


We Love Rob Murray


We love Rob! Phenomenal realtor. Answers the phone every time we call, responds quickly to texts and emails. Our home sold after 8 days on the market and was priced just right that we ended up getting an offer for well over what we asked. We are currently looking for a new home and Rob has been great in meeting our needs and finding properties which match our criteria. I can't wait until we find the right home. I am sure we will be writing another awesome review.  Nicole and Chris


A stellar experience


Our experience with Rob was stellar, and we would highly recommend him. During the entire process he was professional, knowledgeable, and thorough. Within a very short time period Rob found us just the home we were looking for, and his referrals for the inspector and appraiser were great. He saved us tens of thousands of dollars by negotiating the purchase price down, and he was able to provide valuable feedback on the housing market and trends based on his decades of experience with realty in Riverside. We have already referred Rob to a number of our friends, and would not hesitate to use him again in the future. John & Bonnie Carter


Highly Recommend Rob Murray


Rob is a true professional. He is very knowledgeable on current real estate market conditions, has good negotiation skills between buyer/seller, great problem solving skills and very responsive to my needs.

He has sold 2 of my properties in Riverside over the past several years and I have to give him credit since he came through with qualified buyers and closed each deal in the time promised.

If you are looking for a top notched realtor, I highly recommend Rob Murray

K. Chan


A true professional


We have nothing but great things to say about Rob Murray. He found our dream home and helped us to make it a reality! We believe that his reputation, experience and connections helped give us the edge over all the other potential buyers. He guided us and kept us informed every step of the way. His personal touch helped get our offer accepted even though there were other "all cash" offers on the table. Rob is a true professional and we would highly recommend him to anyone. John and Veronica Michels


Rob was great!


Rob was great! I contacted him after reading the great reviews and arranged a meeting with him at a property I was interested in. I was new in the area but he listened to what I was looking for and started working with me right away. After a few weeks he contacted me about a property that fit my criteria AND my budget. It was a short sale but he talked me through the process and made sure I understood everything. The sale went through a lot faster than we had hoped and I am now getting ready to move in :) Thanks again Rob! I couldn't have done this without all your help!  Anita Lin


Highly Recommend


We have only good things to say about Rob. This is our fourth house and by far the easiest purchase in spite of a potentially difficult situation. Appreciated Rob's willingness to give his opinion and advice and also his sticking with us through tennant move out. Rob knows the real estate business much better than a typical agent.  Esther Julier


Helped sell family home - Recommend without hesitation


I recently moved my parents to be near us in texas. It was an emotional decision for my folks who had been in this home for over 50 years. Rob handled this sale as if it were concerning his own family. What could have been a difficult process was in fact facilitated quite nicely by this professional. We are very pleased with Rob and would recommend his services without hesitation. Dave Watt


Fantastic!


Rob was fantastic on every. Level ! From the beginning he returned calls immediately and was extremely accommodating in showing me the property I ultimately purchased ! I must have requested to see the home 27 times in 5 days and he came through every time ! I feel he understands how emotional and how big a decision buying a home is and made me feel from start to finish that he really works hard at making such a big decision as easy as possible ! He had excellent knowledge of the home and its History and surrounding area ! MOST IMPORTANTLY !! He is not a high pressure , tell you everything you want to here ... Used car salesman type of BS salesman !!! I would absolutely recommend him to anyone buying or selling a home !  Gary Romano


Excellent Negotiator - Highly Recommend


We bought our lovely house through Rob. He is truly knowledgeable and professional; furthermore, he is an excellent negotiator. He handled several delicate situations that arose with the utmost professionalism and went extra steps to make sure everyone was happy with the outcome.  Thank you, Rob, for all your dedication and hard work. You are highly recommended!  Bill & Yuling Sheng


Outstanding!


Robert is an excellent agent who made all the difference when buying our home. Aside from his outstanding work ethic, his resources and knowledge definitely gave us the advantage in finding our home and completing our purchase. Readily available 24/7, there was never a moment he could not be reached. Robert always put our interest in first priority and attacked every obstacle with an aggressive work standard that made it possible to achieve our goals in this currently high competitive market. I highly recommend this agent without reservation. Joshua Charette


Highly Recommend


This is the second home Rob Murray has listed and sold for us. Rob was able to close the sale $10,000 over its appraised value because he addressed the potential value issue in the early stages of negotiations. He was also our Realtor on two investment homes we purchased last year with a third to close next month. He has a system that really helps buyers land a home by finding out exactly what they’re looking for, emailing listings the day they hit the market and then submitting well thought out offers quickly. He referred us to a very good lender to do our loans as well as contractors for remodeling. We have found him to be an invaluable resource of knowledge, property values & trends, a skilled negotiator and a articulate communicator. He delivers what he promises, answers his phone or returns calls promptly and is on time to appointments. Also, Rob is well known in the real estate community which gives him credibility when dealing with other agents. We highly recommend Rob Murray to anyone considering buying or selling a home.

E. A. Zinke


Sold then bought a home from Rob


We just purchased a new home in Riverside with Robert. He sold our house within one week and was able to negotiate the purchase of our new home expertly. It was a very smooth process on both ends. We were extremely satisfied with our experience. Robert is expert negotiator and knows Riverside very well. If you are looking for someone who can close deals with YOUR BEST INTEREST in mind, look no further!  Christopher & Nicole Robinson


Very Impressed with the sale of our house


Rob did an amazing job! My husband and I were very impressed and pleased with how smooth Mr. Murray made the whole process of selling our first home. I would highly recommend working with Rob on any of your real estate needs; he is professional, responsive and friendly.  Thanks Rob!  Lauren & Myles


Awesome!


Rob was awesome. He returned phone calls promptly and was the ultimate professional. I hope to do business with him in the future.

Jeff Stallworth


Personal, Ethical & Professional


Buying and/or selling a home is a very personal process that can be stressful and intimidating. It was reassuring to know that Rob Murray was an experienced agent who followed high ethical practices. He showed a respect for his profession and worked with optimism and a personal touch. He communicates clearly, answering questions in detail and at my level. He is enthusiastic and resourceful, offering suggestions and feedback when it was necessary. Throughout the process I was confident that he had my best interest in mind. Rob was instrumental in making the sale of my property a positive experience. 

KJ Schmel


Recommend with highest confidence!


Rob was excellent thoughout the home buying process. He negotiated a very good price for the purchase and we are so pleased that he is now helping us selling our current home which sold within 2 days of listing! I completely trust Rob's knowledge and expertise. I recommend him with the highest confidence to anyone.  Kevin & Agnes Codorniz


Highly Recommend


My husband and I just sold our home with Rob Murray. Rob was nothing but professional and understanding of our situation and always had a positive attitude. Rob is a man of his word which is hard to find these days. We would highly recommend Rob to anyone looking to sell or buy a home.  Michele Dantuono


We Highly Recomend Rob Murray


We just completed a home purchase and were very fortunate to have Rob guiding us through the process. We are first-time buyers and have only been in California for a few months; Rob knew the areas in which we were interested, the school districts, the feel of the neighborhoods to help us narrow down our search. We never felt pressured to make an offer, rather Rob made sure we found the right home at the right price. When we had questions, he either had answers or knew where to get them, and would follow-up right away. He gave us great advice as to what to offer for our home, and was able to get our offer accepted quite quickly. The whole process was made simple by having a knowledgeable, professional realtor. We highly recommend Rob Murray to anyone buying or selling in the area. 

William & Alison Grover


Our Third House With Rob


After having a very good experience with Rob in 2009 selling our primary residence, we recently contacted him to help us find a rental home. Within 2 weeks we were presented with several great opportunities. The home we purchased appraised for $20,000 higher than our purchase price and we have significant positive cash flow day one. Everything was delivered as promised, we were updated regularly and our calls were immediately answered or returned promptly. He is a top notch professional Realtor and we highly recommend him! Once again Rob set us up with a fantastic rental property home he got for us that just closed. We intend to use him as well on our next two purchases as he's and expert in his field. 

Ernie & Nancy


Rob was great!


Rob was great! When we first started to search for houses, he was the first realtor to call us back and spent much time on the phone walking us step by step through what we needed to do. House after house we put an offer on was turned down, but Rob remained hopeful saying when it's meant to be, we'd get the one we want. Today escrow closed on our beautiful new home! The one we loved more than any others and it's thanks to Rob that it happened the way it did. 5 stars all the way!

Alison Thierbach


Professional, impressive, knowledgable and diligent!


Rob Murray; professional, impressive, knowledgable and diligent! Those are a few words that come to mind when I hear the name Rob Murray. I found Rob via the internet, while researching different realtors. Since this was my first home, I wanted somebody who was very knowledgable. Rob was the only realtor that stood out! He had 50+ reviews and 5 stars!! I read a lot of the reviews and chose to work with Rob to find my first home. Rob was always there to answer any question or concerns of mine! I started to work with Rob at the end of March 2013 and closed escrow on my beautiful home May 28, 2013!! He advised me on how to increase my chances on landing a home and was very determined on getting me into my dream home! Rob always had a positive attitude and remained professional every step of the way! Rob truly cares about his clients and shows it! I HIGHLY recommend Rob Murray!

Short Sale Miracle


My short sale was one of the toughest ever and Rob Murray stuck with it even when it looked like it would never happen. He stayed positive and he never gave up. He continually kept me updated on the progress, and worked around one of the toughest banks to deal with on a short sale. His persistence and refusal to give in is what got my deal done. I am very grateful to Rob for all his help and could not recommend him enough.

Adrian Johnson


Great Experience


Working with Rob was a great experience. We had bought a few houses before this, and this was an exceptional enjoyable experience. Rob was very professional, and always ready to help. He impressed me with his capability to work with the seller's agent and the lender. For example, we initially had doubt about the lender/broker he had suggested, but it turned out that that his person was the best and we closed the loan really fast. Rob is honest up front and his knowledge of this area and the market sets him apart from the others. I would contact him again if we were to buy another house, for investment or to live in.  Ying Ma


Helped with a complicated sale


We had a complicated situation, Rob was able to handle it very nicely. He was ontop of the situation and readily available whenever we needed him. His demeanor was very professional and was in-tune to our needs. We are thankful to have had him as our agent.

Laurie Koch


The only Broker I recommend in Riverside County


Mr. Murray is very excellent in all aspects of the real estate process, and he is the only broker I recomend in Riverside county. He sent listings and advised me in full range of the real estate process for 2yrs. He will go the extra mile to make sure everyone is well taken care of. Thanks again Rob for a good job. We worked together in 2011 , 2012. and 2013.

AMAZING REALTOR!


Robert Murray is AMAZING!!! He makes the home buying process easy. From the moment I talked to him on the phone I knew he was our guy. Right away he took the bull by the horn and told me what to do to get the process rolling. I was put off by other realtors who acted in a sense as if they were too good and didn't need my business. We are a young couple buying our first home and I felt like other realtors didn't take us seriously. I contacted several other realtors before coming across Robert's info and boy was he a breath of fresh air. I felt like he really listened to what we had to say and was HONEST. Robert always responded promptly to all correspondence and although I know he has plenty of other clients (drive around, you are bound to see his name in one place or another), he makes you feel like there is nobody else but you!! I have not one negative thing to say about this man. And thanks to Robert, I'm in a beautiful home and SOOO happy. Thank you Robert so very much for making my dream of home ownership a reality :-) 

Erica Fuller


Very greatful to Rob Murray


From all the horror stories you hear about realtors and agents, we were very skeptical entering the process of buying our first home. However, Mr. Murray was extremely professional, knowledgable, and very easy to contact and to stay in contact with. We worked directly with him and not an assistant. Any time we had a question, whether through email or phone call, Mr. Murray was always very prompt in his response. Had it not been for him, I don't believe we would have gotten such a wonderful house in a great area. He really listened to what we wanted in a home and helped us to get the perfect home. We are so grateful that we had the opportunity to work with Mr. Murray and would recommend him to any of our friends or family looking to buy a home.

Rosa Lopez


Made our short sale easy


Robert was very knowledgeable in the short sale process. He kept me updated weekly and answered any and every question my wife and I had throughout the process. He negotiated on our behalf with our lender and made it very easy and less stressful for my family by going above and beyond for us. He knew the right price for our house to sell quickly and that the lender will accept. I recommend him to any and everyone in need a of a hard working agent to find u the house u want and/or to sale the house you are in.


GREAT JOB!


Robert was referred to us by family, right from the start he made us feel at ease with the way he conducts his business, he made it very ease for us and took care of everything in a fast and professional manner. He resolved all issues that came up in the process and delivered results. A very reliable professional you can count on.

GREAT JOB ROBERT!! THANKS.

Epigmenio & Sandra Garay


Thanks Rob!


Rob did a great job selling my house. He not only got offers on the 1st day it was listed, he actually got an offer over the asking price! Of course, this offer fell through due to the buyer not maintaining their credit rating. But, Rob went back to work and had another offer, better than the 1st one, on the same day he put it back on the market, and it was a cash deal that closed in a very short time!

Thanks Rob!


5 Star Rating


I found Robert from Zillow reviews and he had 5 star rating and he proved it again. Robert helped us to purchase our first home. He is very responsive and quick to show the properties and he is familiar with market trends. He is very good in writing offers and getting responses in a day. He has good strategies to negotiate that resulted in a better deal for us. He always responed my emails and phone calls. He kept me updated all the steps of buying a home. He listens to your requirements and works for you. I would recommend him to others and likely to use his service in future.

The best hands down


Rob is the best hands down! This is my second house and I am very impressed. He is always there when you need him, has your best interest in mind, and very knowledgeable! I will and have already recommended him! I also will continue to use him for houses to come!

Joe Ramos


Great Short Sale Experience


I had never met Rob before calling him to help us out with our home. My husband and I had been talking about "short sale" and I had been reading up on it in the internet. When my husband saw his billboard, he got the phone number and we called him up. Rob came to our house. He was proffessional as well as informative. We felt at ease with him and asked a lot of questions which felt uncomfortable to even think about. He put us at ease. This process was quicker than we thought. And now, we can focus on recuperating our clean credit and some day soon, owning a home again.

He has rich experienced with sale houses and knowledge of Riverside community!

Highly Recommend


We are glad that we met Robert Murray through the Internet on Zillow. We were amazed with his knowledge of the different neighborhoods in Riverside since we aren't familiar with the area. His expertise in the manner in which he writes his contracts really helped us to save money and negotiate with the seller to insure that our offer was accepted. He always kept us posted on what step we were on in the long process involved in purchasing a short sale. However, it was all well worth the wait as we got our dream home in a great neighborhood at a good price. We highly recommend him and would have him as our realtor again in the future.

The Gonzalez Family


Professional, Honest, Helpful


My wife and I were new to the Riverside area. After living in an apartment for 6 months we decided to buy a house, the first one we would ever buy. So basically we knew nothing about the house market and the house-buying process.

Robert was very helpful at educating us about the whole process. He was always professional and honest. We were very happy with his service. He didn't walk away from short sales like my first agent did.

We went out with him three times and we made two offers to two different houses. The second offer was sent out the day we looked at the house and was accepted the very next day. The whole short sale process took only two and a half months. We have been happy with the new house. We know that without Rob's help we couldn't have owned such a nice house at a fair price.

Helped us buy our dream ocean view home


The dream retirement ocean view home that I just purchased would never have happened if it were not for Rob Murray's excellent negotiating skills. There were many road blocks and seemingly impossible obstacles that almost derailed this transaction. Rob skillfully bargained down the seller's offered price, walked me through the escrow and loan procedures, and held the deal together when the first loan fell through. He also managed to get the seller to fund the upgrades needed after the inspection. I highly recommend Rob Murray as a veteran, competent real estate agent. His former career as the owner of his own mortgage company really came in handy during the loan process.

Hugh & Susanne


Thumbs Up


Robert Murray couldn't have been better. He guided our listing from the beginning to a very successful conclusion. His communication skills are excellent and he showed me the value of his services over and over again as he stayed in touch me regularly and kept me informed of every detail of our listing and ultimate sale. I would recommend Robert Murray as a very experienced, knowledgeable, and professional real estate broker. Thank you and thumbs up to Robert Murray.

William & Grace Scherer


Short Sale Expert!


Rob Murray is an outstanding realtor. He handled the short sale of my home and made a challenging situation much easier. He showed up to our meeting on time, well dressed and very prepared. Rob had already gone through all of the paperwork ahead of time, highlighting the areas I needed to sign. He answered my questions without hesitation and made the process simple to understand. His extensive knowledge regarding short sales made me feel like I was in good hands.

After our meeting, Rob called and emailed me with updates regularly during the entire process. He made himself readily available and was always quick to respond to my questions, via email or phone.

The short sale went through successfully and I credit Rob for that. I will definitely refer him in the future.

Short Sale Success


Escrow just finally closed on my house. The first mortgage was covered, with a short sale on the second. Rob Murray's expertise and advice were invaluable in the process. Rob walked me through every step of the way, kept me informed of status, persevered through every obstacle that came up, and really stayed on top of the escrow to make it happen. He was also the contact person for everyone involved, so I did not have to deal with any negotiations, which took a tremendous amount of stress off me. I have worked with Rob Murray on many other transactions over the years, both as my broker and my mortgage loan person, and he has always been professional, competent, and knowledgeable. I would definitely recommend Rob Murray for any real estate transaction.

Thank You Mr. Murray


I don't know where to begin! My home search began summer of 2012 and after inquiring a few real estate agents in the Orangecrest area Robert Murray was the first to respond to my emails and my choice was made! He responded within 20 minutes whereas the other agents took a few days! I am a first time homebuyer and I was absolutely clueless to anything in the real estate market and admit I was a bit intimidated about purchasing a home since I am single and have never rented or owned a home. He took his time to explain how the process works and answered all of my gazillion questions and making everything seem so simple!. He walked me through a short sale process with a home I was interested in and when that didn't work out I was discouraged but Robert Murray took his time to encourage me to keep looking. He found another home that I was interested in and the day the house hit the market is the same day I put an offer that was accepted thanks to Mr. Murray's negotiation skills. I absolutely love this home and is ten times better than the previous home and am very grateful that its everything I was looking for and better! I recommend Robert Murray to anyone because he really makes you feel at ease and his knowledge about everything in real estate will blow you away!! Thank you Mr. Murray for guiding me every step of the way to becoming a first time homeowner of my dream home! Alina Lupescu

Rob Murray is without question the best real estate broker I have dealt with in my 30 years of being involved with real estate. He is a true advocate for his clients and honest in all his communications. His services continue from the day he is retained until after the closing, yes after the closing! His goal is to make you completely satisfied with your purchase with no regrets; we have none and love our new home which he gained a great price for. We highly recommend Rob, a truly top notch real estate professional and a man of integrity.

Short Sale Success


I got acquainted with Rob Murray through a friend. I remember being impressed with Rob's honesty and market knowledge even during our first conversation. During the course of selling our house, Rob continued to impress us with his attention to detail, competitive analysis and negotiation skills. He is very prompt and expects the same promptness from us too. I would highly recommend him.

Rob Murray knew the proper procedures and explained everything in great detail. What he explained to us is exactly what occurred.

Helped us buy our home


We found Rob on Trulia. He helped us find our dream home in a very nice area. We are not from Riverside so his knowledge of the area was very important. Not only did we get a great deal, but Rob made it possible for us to close in 3 weeks right before the holidays. He kept us informed at all times and answered all our questions right away. We would recommend Rob to anyone looking for a home in Riverside.

Four in Four


I have nick named Rob, Four in Four. Rob Murray handled and closed four sales and purchase in four months for me in this year2011. All the properties were in Riverside, CA. They all sold and were purchased for appropriate reasonable amounts. When the deal got a little shakey Rob saved the sales with altenate solutions that worked for both parties. And in all four cases both buyers and sellers felt they came out winners..

Rob is a professional, diligent, hardworking broker/agent that truly is knowledgable in all areas of real estate, escrow, and mortgages. He handled two residential sales, one business property sale and one residential purchase for me that alll closed in FOUR MONTHS.

Thank you, Rob Murray, Broker/realtor extraordinaire


Awesome experience!

2nd House Purchase with Rob


Rob murray is awesome this is the 2nd house he has help me buy and not the last. He is very quick at getting things done as well as getting you what you need or want. I do and would recommend him to anyone and everyone who is in need of his services. Joe Ramos


Saved the day


Rob Murray hit a home run! Things were not looking good for me-it looked like the bottom of the ninth inning, I was down by 2, with a man on base. Rob stepped up to the plate and blasted one out of the park! It has been my experience in the past that this industry has its share of of less than honest people. I will never again complete a real estate transaction with out Mr. Murray. Rob is a master at what he does, a true professional who makes it look easy. Honesty, Integrity, Dedication, Perseverance, Knowledgeable are a few words that best describe Rob.

Great deal on an investment property


I work for an investment company and Rob was one of the best Brokers I have ever had the pleasure to work with. He was very knowledgeable and professional. He negotiated a great price and was able to get my offer accepted quickly. I can't wait to work with him again.  Mike Winzenread


Sold 5 houses - Highly recommend


Rob assisted my family sell 5 of my elderly parents properties. He did an excellent job and was extremely helpful given that we lived out of state. Rob went the extra step for us. He was very professional and would highly recommend him.  George Govier


Short Sale Expert!


I cannot praise Rob enough for his professionalism, expertise, and dedication. My short sale was somewhat complicated and very time consuming. Rob kept me up to date on the progress every step of the way. His level of expertise is what, thankfully, made my short sale a successful one. There were many pitfalls, but he was able to overcome each one because of his diligence, negotiation skills, and persistence. I would highly recommend him!!

Great buyers agent


My wife, mother and i just purchased a house and Rob Murray was our agent. He did an excellent job in all aspects especially in calling and sending e-mails to constantly keep us updated. He also dealt with the sellers and fought for the repairs that we wanted to be handled by them. I would recommend him very highly and will use him again when we decide to sell.

You won’t go wrong if you list your property with Robert Murray


We have been so fortunate to list our properties with Robert Murray.  Rob is a true professional with a unique background in all areas of real estate, escrows, and mortgages.  His experience includes both residential and commercial properties.

We are now working with Rob on our third listing and one purchase in the last six months.  We only have one more recent listing to sell.   Rob was up front with us on the values of the property, how to stage the property for the best showing, and the listing pictures gave a true impression of the quality of each property to bring the right buyer to us.

Rob was always available for questions and very thorough in his updates keeping us apprised of how our properties were progressing.  We appreciated the ease it took to work with the escrow company and how smooth the escrow closings were.  This was all because Rob is an exceptional real estate professional.   He worked with the escrow companies and buyers smoothing the way all the way for us.

You won’t go wrong if you list your property with Robert Murray,

Highly Recommend


We just bought a new house for our growing family and sold our other one through Rob. It was an excellent experience. We got his name through a friend of mine and I must say that going with him was the best decision. He is not pushy and very effective. We bought the new house at a reasonable price and sold our old one above asking price and went into escrow within 3 days of being on the market. I highly recommend going with Rob whether you need to buy or sell. Kevin & Agnes Codorniz


Highly Recommend


"Mr. Murray is truly an expert with short sales. His knowledge and skill of the entire process resulted in a successful short sale of our home, even with the odds stacked against us. His professional rapour with our mortgage lender, played an important role with the decision making process. We highly recommend Rob Murray to anyone that is serious about selling their home."

Rob made it all come together


This was not your typical purchase. Rob worked for months with the seller, helping him along with his move. Rob had spent many hours every week helping the seller find his next location out of state. We had a 90 day escrow with many things to coordinate and Rob worked really hard to make it all come together.

Successful Short Sale!


I owned a condo that I was upside down on and had to short sale it; Rob Murray and his team guided me through the process. He dealt with my lenders directly which was no easy task. I put very little effort into the process and came through it paying nothing out of pocket. I couldn’t be more grateful to Rob, his experience made the process simple for me. I looked forward to working with Rob and his team again very soon.

Great Job!


I felt like I had to share this with anyone that has hit some tough times, I bought my first home in February of 1990 and did all the wrong things (RE-FI'S) thinking things would just keep rolling along with no interruptions I got myself "way" upside down in the house, then lost my six figure job of 13 years, my tenant got cancer....bla bla bla. You see where I am going with this. Then I got Rob Murrays phone number and gave him a call. It was a very drawn out process and we had to do allot to get it done but after it was all said and done instead of the home I had for 20 years being repossessed Rob got it sold for just under $150,000 less than I owed on it. WOW what a great job, the house was not going to continue to be mine one way or the other but the fact that the foreclosure is not on my credit is a Huge thing for my wife and I. Rob thank you and I cant tell you enough, GREAT JOB!!!!!

Thank you Rob!


Rob Murray did a highly professional job finding a home for our family. I knew many real estate agents and nobody is as good as Rob. Within three month of our closing he was always available on the phone or e-mail and was able to solve all the problems real fast and professional. Thank you, Rob and hope to deal with you again! Sincerely, Gregory

Sold my home for $25,000 more than asking price


Robert Murray sold my home for $25,000 more than asking price because he has the ability to negotiate for real value. This is a gift he has as well as having had many years experience in the business. He is extreemly professional, readily available, succinct, and efficient and has a practical way of explaining the situation at hand. He is also on top of market statistics day to day. I would only use him in my future real estate investment transactions.

Highly Recommend


Rob was very impressive to work with I highley recommend him. He found our dream home when it seemed impossible. A very real person tells it like it is. It was a great experience for us I'll never use any one else.

Tavis Grim


Really helped with our Short Sale


Rob was a tremendous help in our short sale process. He provided weekly status updates with all the requested details. Without Rob's professionalism and knowledge of the short sale process, I'm not sure we would have been able to sell our home in the short window we gave him. We gave Rob a difficult challenge working with a difficult lender and he exceeded our expectations. We would not hesitate to call Rob should we need to sell/purchase a home in the future.

Raymond Atilano
