Brian Murray

Principal / Licensee

Over 30 years in real estate development and sales with a straight talking approach.

I believe that experience in real estate is paramount in obtaining the maximum price for my vendors. I have been involved in, and led, property developments across Australia. These range from small and large multimillion dollar commercial and residential developments. The biggest project was the strata of 61 units in Rivervale and my latest residential project in North Beach won a HIA award.

I have also worked in the new home industry. Supporting clients locate land, select and customise their design, achieve financial and council approvals, oversee construction, and right through to home completion.

I also established and managed a successful marketing business for 10 years, with branches across Australia and New Zealand, which I later sold to a public listed multinational company.

As you can, see, I have a wide knowledge of all facets of the Real Estate industry and marketing and sales. This in turn will help me to maximise the return for my vendors, you, on any type of real estate you choose to list.

We would like to thank Brian Murray from LJ Hooker North Beach most sincerely for his advice prior to putting our house on the market. Our house was previously on the market with a well-known North Beach agency who were extremely disappointing – no result and very little feedback given throughout the selling process. You were able to outline various options for us to consider with respect to our property, the current market position in regards to the reserve price and what work was needed to maximise the selling price. These discussions resulted in us nominating to sell by Auction. During the entire selling process you gave us regular feedback and guided us throughout the sale, which was above our expectations. We really appreciated the patient and persistent way that you handled all the concerns from the people purchasing the property and negotiating the price and conditions of sale. We wish you all the best and would recommend LJ Hooker North Beach to all our family, friends and colleagues.

James and Amanda Karrinyup Rd, Trigg

We are extremely appreciative of you Brian for your excellent performance on the sale of our Unit in Sorrento St North Beach. As the person on the front line meeting prospective buyers and representing ourselves and our property, we were completely confident that an honest and accurate representation would be made. Your personal style is quite ideal for the task of selling and facilitating the purchase of real-estate so we have no doubt that LJ Hooker North Beach will be highly successful. After considering other agencies in the area we chose LJ Hooker North Beach. Their professionalism, marketing and strategic thinking made the choice easy. Brian, your diligence, systematic approach and straight forward hard work achieved the result we were looking for and we are very grateful. We have now transferred our investment properties to the team at LJ Hooker North Beach to manage. We highly recommend LJ Hooker North Beach to everyone, be it for selling, buying or property management. Yours sincerely.

Michele and Peter, North Beach.

I am very happy with the way you acted on both my transactions. The sale was very quick, only 1 day and the purchase took a bit longer due to tenants being in the property. You kept me up to date on the progress in finding them another rental and were very helpful with allowing my daughter inspection rights so she could sort out the dimensions of the 2nd bedroom. I have made contact with the neighbours, who are friendly and helped me when I moved in. I am more than happy to recommend you and should I get any enquiries re sale or purchase of property I will definitely get them to contact you. With thanks.

Noranda - We would like to thank you for the friendly and professional way you conducted the sale of Mayer Close. The experience of selling was made all the less stressful through your professionalism and keeping us informed of prospective buyers. We were impressed with the quick sale within the week and thousands over what we were expecting from the sale. Your communication and support throughout the whole process which made the experience of selling so much easier. I wish you and your new office all the best and thank you once again.


Successful investment property sold - Just wanted to thank you for the effort put into ,and the co-ordination of the sale of my property in Noranda. As an ex real estate agent I thought I could sell my investment property myself but after a lack of success for a while your exposure to better marketing tools on the net and I'm sure your general networking and frequent home opens brought to a successful conclusion this sale for which I'm very grateful. Thanks again for the time and effort. Yours faithfully.

We would like to thank you most sincerely for all the thoughtful advice you provide for David and I when selling our house in Rivervale early this year. You were able to outline various options for us to consider with respect to the property. You outlined the current market position for rentals in the area both a short term and long term basis, selling with additional work being carried out or selling as the property stood. These discussions resulted in us nominating to sell because you had clarified for us that this was in our best interest, so thank you for that work. With your network of potential buyers the property was prepared and offers were coming quickly. The suggestions you made about the price, conditions of the house to sell etc., all resulted in a quick and relatively painless process. We really appreciated the patient and persistent way that you handled all the concerns from the people purchasing the property. You have an attention to detail which smoothed the path considerably. We wish you all the best and would recommend you to all our friends and colleagues.

Jennifer and David – Rivervale
