"A longtime friend of mine was looking to purchase a home in Sarasota, and she had very specific ideas about the location and type of home she required. I referred her to Bev Murray and felt confident she’d be in good hands. Given that covid was in full swing, my friend wished to purchase sight unseen. Bev was familiar with the neighborhood and went out of her way to make the process as straightforward as possible. She arranged the virtual showing, helped negotiate a good price, took the initiative to bring in a trusted local contractor to resolved an electrical issue arising from the inspection, and facilitated the purchase so that it was smooth and stress-free. It feels good to have a trusted professional to refer my customers to!”

Another realtor who is a friend of ours in Jacksonville referred us to Bev Murray in the greater Sarasota area. We could not have been more pleased by her great listening skills, focus on us as clients from Colorado. Her energy was perfect and her advice was spot on. She really honed in on the types of homes that we were focused on. We worked diligently and came to a beautiful solution. Judy and I would recommend Bev enthusiastically and without any reservations. Cheers!

"Working with Bev and her husband Steve has been a real pleasure. While Bev has the market wired, Steve brings a home builder's perspective which added a ton of value as we looked through some homes to decide what was right for us. On the sale side, we had 2 offers within the first week of having it on the market!"

If you are looking for a professional yet personable realtor, look no further. Bev was able to hang in there with us as we refined the size and location of what we were looking for over the course of several weeks. She was a patient, encouraging friend throughout the process. I couldn't recommend her more highly. You will be glad you contacted her.


Bev is fun and engaging and has such a depth and breadth of knowledge of real estate that we felt we were in very safe, very capable hands when we sold our house. Bev gave us a feel for the current and future housing climate, but fundamentally, she has an encyclopedic knowledge of the local area. I would very highly recommend."


As overseas property buyers, our experience with Bev was nothing less than exceptional. Bev took the time to educate us about the Florida property market, consider all the factors associated with being outside the US, addressed many of these with proactive and practical help and ultimately ‘hand-held' us through the journey to buy and then lease our property. Bev is not just an excellent professional at what she does but has truly become a friend to our family.

From the beginning we knew we had chosen well with Bev Murray to sell our home. She was approachable, easy to talk to but most of all professional. She covered every detail, produced incredible photographs and worked hard to get everything in place quickly. The house was sold within days. Thank you Bev.

Bev Murray and The Murray Group helped me to navigate through selling my home at the same time as buying a new one, The way that they got to know the DNA of my property and identified the right buyer was very impressive, while finding the right home for me to move into, within my budget in a fabulous neighborhood. Beyond the dynamic sales aspect, the handling of the process during a very stressful life change for me was exceptional and I cannot thank them enough for making it seamless and as easy as it could be.

Bev exceeded all expectations my wife and I had going into the process of buying our new home and selling our old home. On the purchasing front, Bev excelled at managing the communications and dialog between us and the seller. Bev is extremely professional, while at the same time so personable that it was very easy to quickly feel at ease knowing that she understood our wishes and could communicate with all parties involved to resolve any matter that came up in process. When it came time to chat about selling our home Bev was fantastic at helping up find the right price point and target audience for the listing. Her care and attention to detail in producing the listing description, photos and supporting materials was exceptional and it showed in the immediate traffic we got upon listing. Within four days we had multiple offers and ended up closing in less then 45 days. In our experience Bev can be counted on to forecast possible difficulties and in the times that things are not going smoothly she finds the path to a resolution quickly, calmly and in a way that all involved feel good about the outcome. We will happily recommend Bev to friends and family looking to buy or build in the Sarasota area.

"Working with Bev and her team allowed us to find the perfect location to build our dream home. Without her expertise, we would have spent more, wasted time and not optimized our ability to build exactly what we dreamed of. Consummate professionalism was our experience during the entire process, from offer to closing! I would strongly recommend Bev!"


Perfect Home Site!

Murray Realty listed and sold the two homes next to ours so our neighbors told us that we must use Bev when we were ready to sell.

She came highly recommended and I’m delighted to say that she lived up to her reputation!

We live in the UK so it was essential that we used someone we could trust to manage the process on our behalf. Bev went above and beyond to make the process as painless as possible.

She handled the listing preparation, marketing, and sales negotiations with complete professionalism. Not only that but she also took care of lots of other things, everything from letting subcontractors and vendors into the house in our absence, making sure we were advised by the correct tax and legal professionals because we are foreign sellers, taking inventory of every single item in our 5 bedroomed house, keeping fresh flowers watered and looking pretty on the front door step, to offering to drop unwanted items to local charities on our behalf.

We simply could not have done it without her!

Bev Murray is truly a professional in every sense of the word. She is knowledgeable, conscientious, very experienced, and a pleasure to work with. As out of town buyers she made the whole process very easy for us.

Since the summer of 2012, my fiancé and I have had the pleasure of developing a great working relationship with Murray Realty as their client during our search for our home. From start to finish, the team Murray Realty team represented themselves in an exemplary manner, no doubt distinguishing Murray Realty as a top-class real estate company. The Murray Realty team holds an intimate knowledge of the local market as well as national market trends and, with this, they continuously provided us with up-to-date and realistic information which was integral to our decision-making process. Moreover, even though our home is located outside of their immediate area, they remained vigilant throughout the post-offer stage of our contract, i.e. traveling an hour at least on numerous occasions to meet us for inspections, etc., all to ensure that they remained fully aware of our situation so that they could continue to provide us with the best advice. For these reasons and many more we do not have the space to list, we highly recommend Murray Realty for their high degree of professionalism, courteousness, patience and resilience. As former military, we know what right looks like! And we are very confident that the Murray Realty team was no doubt the right choice for us in helping us secure our first home together."

All the best in your future endeavors,

Working with Murray Realty has exceeded my every expectation. I recently relocated to Florida from Arizona for work, and was referred to Murray realty by my employer. Due to circumstances out of my control, I was on a very rigid schedule. I had 2 days to spend in Florida searching for a new home, after which there was 1 week before I hoped to move-in. To add to the challenge, I needed to conduct most of my search from out-of-state, with no prior knowledge of the area. Murray realty team responded to emails and phone calls quickly and provided several options for me to consider. They were very attentive to finding the features that I had requested and were very knowledgeable about the area. After touring several condos and making my selection, they explained the application process and facilitated communication between both the listing agency and the condo association. They even helped expedite the paperwork so that I was able to secure the condo (which had other interested applicants) and be ready to move in on the exact date I arrived. My cross-country move could not have gone any smoother, and that was in large part due to the assistance provided by Murray Realty. I love my new condo and am really happy living here. I would highly recommend working with Murray Realty for all your real estate needs!

We chose to work with Bev Murray because she understood what we wanted and was someone I felt would be honest through the process so that we didn't buy the "wrong" home for our families needs. She helped us keep our eye on the prize and not settle for less. In the end we got a home that exceeded our expectations for less than what we expected to pay. We are thrilled!

Jagbir and Amy Grewal

We recently completed our third property transaction with Bev Murray of Murray Realty. The attention to detail and thoroughness of every aspect of the purchase was handled just as well as the prior transactions with the complete professionalism we have come to expect. During what can be a stressful period it is nice knowing we can go on with our day-to-day routine and not have to worry about surprises of any kind. We are happy to recommend Bev to our friends and look forward to her assistance on our next purchase or sale.

Michael and Terri Klein

Bev maintains a professionalism that is second to none. Her experience and knowledge in the real estate field are endless and she is a pleasure to work with, whether buying or selling a home. Bev is always readily available to answer questions and guide through the buying and selling process. She goes above and beyond conducting her research and sharing suggestions to make buying and selling smooth sailing. Being in business with her husband, who is a luxury home builder, she offers an angle on what to look for in a home that comes first-hand. Highly recommend!

Bev Murray is an extremely professional and diligent real estate agent. She is exceptionally responsive and dependable, always returning calls, texts, and emails in a timely fashion. Bev works in a highly collaborative manner with her clients, incorporating their needs with her expertise. Additionally, Bev possesses a reassuring and amicable demeanor, maintaining a sense of calm during potentially stressful times. She is organized with her real estate strategy and excels in the area of negotiation, always confident in her knowledge and research of the market. Bev sold our home in less than 24 hours for full asking price. I am convinced this is due to her comprehensive market analysis including the precision of the listing price, marketing and property write up. I highly recommend Bev Murray

Bought a home in Sarasota, FL.

It is important to have a real estate agent who is knowledgeable, meticulous and detail oriented, professional, and intuitive. Bev Murray is all of that. It was just a pleasure to have her walk us through the process of buying our home in Florida. She made the entire process as easy as possible. She was available, answered all of our questions, and we could depend on her.

We cannot say enough positive things about her. Our experience with Bev Murray was superb, and we recommend her highly.

Dot and Allison Hively

The best decision we made when deciding to sell our home was to appoint Bev as our Listing Agent. She explained the whole sales process to us 'rookies' with clarity and simplicity, she took away much of the stress of selling with her kind, patient, honest and understanding nature. She actually made it fun and enjoyable!

Bev also proved to be a consummate professional with a forensic attention to detail, coupled with superb communication skills and an insightful knowledge of the market. Hardly surprising then that Bev had us a signed contract only 37 days after listing!

Fantastic Bev, thank you, you're a star!"
