Below is an example of what some of our clients have said about working with us as their real estate agents in Tucson. We are more than happy to provide references if you prefer as well. We welcome you to join our clients that actively refer us to their friends and loved ones.
Personal Touch - Jack and Barbara Murray were, by far the best real estate agents I've ever been associated with. My wife and I have lived and bought homes in New Orleans La, Morgantown Wv, Ann Arbor Michigan, Tampa Fl, Houston Tx, and Pittsburgh Pa. This experience here with Jack and Barbara was the most complete process, starting with an initial meeting, thru the selection of a home, thru the closing, thru the completion of our remodel of the home purchase. The personal touch they displayed was exceptional and their knowledge of the Tucson area, and different builders, and different styles were outstanding. -- Calvin and Rose
Buying and Selling - My wife and I bought a home and later sold one with the Murray Team. Not only are the Murray's extremely knowledgeable, they provide phenomenal service to their clients. Jack and Barbara always put our needs and interests before theirs. They made us feel as if we were their most important clients even though we definitely weren't their richest. THANK YOU JACK AND BARB! -- Kevin & Kara
Found You on Zillow.com - Jack Murray was my realtor when buying my home in Tucson this May 2015. I was completely new to the home buying process and did not even know where to start. I started working with Jack and quickly realized he was very valuable source of information. He is knowledgeable about every detail of this process and essentially served as my guide through the entire journey. He was always very responsive and made every effort to accommodate my requests, no matter how unreasonable or last minute they were. Jack coordinated conversations between my loan officer, title agent and myself. He would even send emails on my behalf when I was too busy at work to do so. Overall, I am very impressed by how crucial he was to my success in getting the home. I was able to get a house better than I expected for a great price. Even though my home is bought, he continues to reach out and finds ways to help. Im really glad I worked with Jack Murray and highly recommend him to other home buyers. -- Amar B.
I Am So Happy! Having Jack Murray as my Realtor was exceptional in so many ways. He is experienced, hard working, honest, thoughtful and intelligent. He kept me informed during the entire process. Even as he handed me the keys to my new home, he said I could contact him if I had any questions or needed further assistance. He's genuine and down to earth while being professional at the same time. I would highly recommend Jack to anyone who either wants to sell or buy; you would be making an excellent choice! -- Pam R.
We Found The Murrays Online! - It was the luck of the draw when we clicked on a Zillow house and the Murray's got our contact info and wow were we lucky. Even though we had never met they were as patient and helpful as if we had known them forever. When we found a second house to view it was just automatic for us to call them. They gave us great counsel on the offer we made and we ended up with a winning offer on the home we wanted. Jack and Barbara were available every step of the way from offer to closing and were very knowledgeable about Tucson homes, neighborhoods, the inspection, local services and the closing process. We always felt that Barbara and Jack would go the extra mile to handle anything we needed. They did in fact go to the house when weren't available to meet a vendor and do the inspection. I can't think of a question we had that they didn't answer(correctly). We will recommend them to our friends and should we ever move again they handle our sale. -- David & Leslie
We Always Use The Murrays - We have known Barbara and Jack for many years. In 1998 they helped us buy a new home and then in 2011 they helped again in a somewhat complicated transaction when we sold and bought another home. Through nobodies fault our 2011 sale fell out of escrow twice but they found another buyer who completed escrow in relatively short order to each parties satisfaction. We definitely recommend them. -- Bill & Barbara
Have Bought Multiple Properties with the Murrays - My wife and I looked for two years before deciding where to buy a property in the Tucson area. Jack Murray worked with us without any impatience and was a terrific resource. Once we purchased a property, we stayed in touch with Jack and Barbara. The result is that they have helped us purchase two additional properties in Tucson. As locals, they understand the dynamics of the Tucson market. I would highly recommend them to anyone searching for a property in Tucson, and have been doing so for the last three years. -- Lincoln and Heather Anderson
Military Relocation - We have worked with the Murrays for years (14 years to be exact), and as a military family, we have relied upon their expertise on many occasions. They have always been there for us, every step of the way. In fact, the Murrays helped us close on our most recent home right in the middle of an overseas deployment. It really could not have been smoother! Both Barbara and Jack are true professionals. They work for you to understand your needs -- asking the right questions and immediately providing the right answers. They always answer their phone or they will call you right back. You definitely feel supported and cared for throughout the home-buying process. Bottom line, we've always felt they treat each person as their newest client for life. Thank you, Barbara and Jack! -- Ted & Jackie
We Had The Murrays help our Daughter - My wife and I have bought and sold with Barbara and her son Jack. We were so impressed with the way they represented us as both a buyer and a seller that we entrusted them with our son. Now that our daughter is ready to by her first home, there are no other realtors who we would trust other than this team. Their patience, professionalism makes them an obvious choice for anyone interested in purchasing their home in a wide range of prices. Their excellence in marketing makes them the absolute best choice for anyone interested in selling their home. -- Allen & Chris
Relocated to Tucson from the East Coast - In 2010, we decided to relocate to Tucson from Pennsylvania. I found Jack and Barbara on the internet, and since we did not have jobs yet, they initially provided us with multiple resources for renting a house. When we were settled and ready to look for a house to buy, we again contacted them and they were both extremely helpful and patient with us, as we looked at house after house for several months. We wanted to find the right place and we did, with their help. We had a great experience and would highly recommend them! -- Terry & Liz
Very Professional - I have known Jack and Barbara Murray for several years both in personal as well as professional capacities. They're both incredibly kind, wonderful people who strive to do an excellent job with their real estate transactions. I consider myself a difficult client, one who is hard to please and I never feel as if I am a burden to either of them. They're always either quick to answer the phone or get back to me if they are unavailable at that moment. I always feel like they have my best interests in mind and wouldn't hesitate to recommend them to others who are looking for an agent or a team. I am confident your experience will echo my own. Thank you Jack and Barbara for all of your work! - Alex Liebeskind
Very Happy Buying and Selling - I used the services of Jack and Barbara Murray in both selling our home and buying a new one. In both situations, they were professional and thorough offering their expertise to make the transactions positive and stress-free. Jack and Barbara Murray will definitely handle any future real estate transactions for me, and I highly recommend them to anyone looking to buy or sell in the real estate market. -- Gaya
Happy to Refer the Murrays - I had The Murray Group show my wife and I some properties and it was a great experience. If anybody is shopping for a new/used home in the Tucson area, I would highly recommend their services. -- Chris and Rosie
First Time Home Buyers -- "Jack Murray was an absolute delight to have as a real estate agent and I would recommend his expertise to anyone. It was my me and my wife's first home purchase and Jack took the time to make sure we understood every step along the way. His patience and his extensive experience were a huge relief. Mr. Murray was also able to work around our very hectic and constantly changing work schedules and always responded very quickly to any questions or concerns we had. Overall, Jack Murray took what could have been a stressful and complicated process and made it fun and easy. Absolutely anyone would be lucky to have him as an agent." Michael & Lauren, Tucson
Winter Home -- "Gwen and I feel really good about the townhome we have purchased and wanted to send you a huge "Thank You". The number one word that stands out for me in working with you would be "professional". Your opinions, recommendations, insights, knowledge were all right on, and with us being unfamiliar with the area, having someone we could trust was invaluable. The other thing that stands out was how you got things done, the roof being a prime example. Getting a roof inspector out there, then getting the 3 quotes all the while working with their realtor, and then to actually get the roof replaced before our closing date was amazing. You got it done right, you got it done on time, and you kept everybody happy in the process. We wish you continued success. Actually, there is one other thing I should mention. It was fun! You both were great." Bill & Gwen, Michigan
Winter Visitors - We were so impressed with Jack and Barbara that we purchased another property with them this past month. And from the first showing to closing was done in under three weeks, during Christmas vacation! I have nothing but praise for Jack and Barbara, and recommend them without reservation. -- Lincoln and Heather
First Time Home Buyers - 'Thanks to Jack and Barbara, we had a great experience as first time home buyers. They were always available and always professional. This wonderful team has a wealth of knowledge in local real estate history as well as current market trends that can be extremely valuable to any first time homebuyer. We definitely recommend their services to not only first time home buyers, but to anyone that may have questions or interest in real estate.' -Leo and Amanda

Happy Holidays from Wind Ridge
"You've brought a lot of happiness to a lot of people by being so professional and consumer oriented. We wish you as much pleasure in this upcoming year as you have given to others." Earl and Claudia
Highest Price in Subdivision
"You have been just wonderful." (Had buyers on the waiting list to buy this up-dated townhome which brought the highest price ever in the complex. We priced the property based on supply and demand. We could have sold it three times!) Kay and Fred, referred by Nancy and John whose townhome had brought the previous highest price!
One day to make decision!
"It is truly amazing that within just a few days, we were able to visit a very large number of houses, make a decision, receive an approval for a mortgage and successfully negotiate a purchase. Your low key, friendly and highly professional manner was a perfect match for the two of us." -- Peter and Linda, Rochester, NY
"You did such a great job when we bought the house that we wouldn't think of anyone else to sell it for us!" -- Brent and Cindy, Tucson
Bought and Sold with The Murrays
Thought it would take 4 months! Relatively new to Tucson, Marty, Susan and their young children, struck a friendship with Barbara and Alan at an Open House. Everybody agreed to meet Saturday to find that perfect Pusch Ridge view (within their budget) with a lot large enough for a pool. After seeing models in just three subdivisions, Barbara introduced them to a "spec" corner home in Rancho Vistoso. With one look, Marty exclaimed, "That's my view." Susan remarked, "I can't believe we found it in just one day...I thought it would take four months." Not only that, they could move in 30 days, and save an additional four months of rent.
Five years later, Murrays were able to bring them the maximum price as they sold their "great view" home for job opportunities in the Phoenix area.
Marty & Susan
Persistence Pays Off
You found us the Perfect Home! Desiring not only a Tanque Verde Valley home,
but also a location where Greg's business could also be located, was not easy because of all the various CC&Rs. Having toured many homes, they did not find what they wanted in their price range, and decided on a lovely older home in Sabino Vista instead. The evening Alan and Barbara met with Greg and Tracy to write an offer, Barbara checked the computer one last time in their prefered Tanque Verde area. A new listing popped up! On Summer Trail. Greg drove by it, and the next morning we were the first to see it! Greg, Tracy, and Walter said, "This is it." Walter added, "Can we stop looking at houses now, Mommy?" Forever grateful, Johnsons recommend their friends and family to the Murrays. -- Greg & Tracy
"You two are a class act." Jerry and Maggie (Englewood Cliffs, NJ)
Two offers in less than 30 days.
"You two have done a 'bang-up' job." Jim's "like new" Catalina Foothills home had been on the market two years with two different agents. Accepted offer within 30 days. -- Jim
Never met a Realtor who Does as Much as You! Needing to move to a single story because of health reasons, Mrs. Johnson put her trust in Alan and Barbara. Worried that she might fall, the Murrays found her a comparable size new spacious house in a gated community, just right for all her beautiful Southwest accessories, and introduced Mrs. Johnson to a lender who made it possible for her to move now, not having to wait for her beautiful tri-level home to sell. Mrs. Johnson is one of our most enthusiastic advocates, even though bulldozers and noisy trucks began carving the mountains in her view, and lengthened the process of selling her original home. -- Mrs. Johnson
You really listen!
Delighted to Finally be in Tucson. Jon and Peggy
first contacted us as members of the Tucson Convention and Visitors' Bureau. A wonderful relationship began in October, grew in March when they found their mountain view home at Saddlebrooke, and continued through their ultimate move from Maryland to Tucson in July. They've now referred us to DC friends who wish to retire here in a year or two. -- Jon & Peggy
"Couldn't have done it without you." Kay
Sold one home and found perfect new!
We love our new home. You know, only 2% of agents do what you do! -- Rick & Patti
Perfect Views and Great Room Plan
I even saw a Mountain Lion! From their magnificent Coronado mountain hillside, the city and Catalina
views are specatular. We didn't advertise the mountain lion Cindy encountered while riding her bicycle, but were tickled to help Mike and Cindy find their desired Tucson retreat, nestled into the rocky hillside and frequented by most every variety of desert wildlife. -- Mike & Cindy
Couldn't have done it without you. Thanks for all your help. We have enjoyed getting to know you two and feel that we were always well informed and that our interest was fairly represented at all times. -- Paul & Jaylene, Oakland, California
