Licensee Salesperson, Ray White Whangarei
Murray is a family man that has enjoyed success in his endeavours, consistent with his enthusiastic and dedicated efforts.
During his 12 years in the Dairy Industry Murray held many management positions throughout the country. For five years he was Production Manager at the New Zealand Dairy Board in Wellington, controlling the nation’s infant formula production to meet international market demand.
During the late 90s, Murray and his wife Leah owned and operated a furniture retail company and a bed manufacturing operation. Murray attributes the tremendous success of this business to the drive for all the staff at the company to exceed customer expectations at all times. This, along with clever marketing and good old fashioned hard work created a secure company for staff and directors alike.
A keen athlete, Murray has played representative sport in several codes. Nowadays whilst still an active cricket player, Murray focuses more on building sport for the new generation. To this end, he is the President and driving force behind the Kamo Cricket Club Inc.
With this ‘hard work ethic’ and drive to succeed for his real estate clients, Murray still finds time to watch his three children play their sport and ensure that they have all they need for their personal development.
Murray Coop will turn what can be a daunting and anxious time, into a stress free, methodical process where you get more than you ever expected.

Murray goes out of his way to ensure his buyer has everything they need to make an informed decision, especially in this case when it was a rental investment.
Murray and Leah
I thought Murray was very thorough in disclosing all the information about the property and explained everything fully to me. I also thought he showed considerable tolerance and support as I was all over the place with my emotions to purchase. Murray was very pleasant and showed me that he could be trusted. Thank you Murray I

From my very first meeting with Murray until conclusion of business I found Murray extremely knowlegeble, engaging and trustworthy. He was excellent at suggesting solutions to problems encountered along the way, as well as improvements to make my property more marketable. I was 100% happy with the service I received from Murray and I have already recommended him to several of my friends and colleagues.

Megan & Barry
Our house took MANY weeks to sell but Murray continued to hold open homes over this time, including Christmas and other long weekends. He kept us well informed throughout this time and was great when it came to negotiating the 2 offers we received.
Denis and Donna
No one can ever score a 10 as there is always something new to learn or improvements to be made, however in saying that Murray was very knowledgeable about the property, vendor and issues that were raised he knew the contacts that could assist (ie) WDC Roading, Planners, Parks & Recreation, Building Compliance.

Very professional and easy to work with. Always kept in contact and kept me well informed. Thanks for your work and helping me sell my property. I was very happy with the service I received from you and look forward to working with you again in the future.
Murry is an honest caring individual who is empthetic to all parties involved in the sale and purchase of a dwelling, including the exisiting tenants as in our case. This was a total contrast to other agents we have dealt with who refer to tenants as second class citizens. Murry is an excellent communicator and always returns calls asap.
Terry & Jeanine
He was very informative and achieved a better than expected result - thanks!
Murray is aware how to build a relationship to ensure the best outcome for the vendor and Ray White. Murray is proactive in the utilisation of his contacts and a skilled negotiator.

Philip & Naylene
...I thought I would just drop a line or two with regards to two of your personnel who have assisted us with the successful purchase of the above premises. A lot of flak is cast upon estate agents and as a positive I have to say that your customer & sales consultant Murray Coop has restored much faith for me personally in an industry that can sometimes be frowned upon. Whilst I could write much, in brief I will say Murray has been articulate, assisted in quietly keeping to timelines, knowledgeable, helpful, honest , open and trustworthy. These are powerful words and not used lightly coming from a customer service environment and background. I would recommend Murray as someone who has a professional approach whilst holding everyone’s best interest at heart. He has made us a very happy family. As a further note I would like to make mention of the senior office administrator Janet Watters who has always been very pleasant and made the process quite seamless. It has been much appreciated. Kind regards Dean
Murray got quick sale for us a he is great to deal with.

Phillip & Pamela
Real Estate is an area we are all interested and involved in at some stage of our lives. It is a defining moment when the decision is made to sell or purchase. Having made the decision the next and by far the most important is to select a professional and diligent agent to develop a plan. We made an inspired choice to select "Team Coop" as our Real Estate agents to market and sell a property that proved difficult to establish a price point. A strong marketing plan was established involving the internet, open homes and private viewings. A calendar of key timelines allowed us to follow the plan and then there was the feedback in the form of weekly updates and emails/phone calls of immediate activity. The underpinning factor in our relationship was that there was a strong level of communication. Given that we live in Australia this was so important. Murray and Leah; regardless of the conditional contract being successful we are very appreciative for your guidance, knowledge of the market, energy and determination to make a sale. It goes without saying that we would happily refer others to take up your professional services. Many thanks.
Gary and Sheryl Bell
Murray Coop was the selling agent for the property we have just bought in Whangarei. He was exceptionally professional throughout a rather messy purchase (NOT his fault) and was very good at keeping us informed. I would be happy to work with Murray and Leah again – and if we sold would certainly list our property with him. June 2012
It is with pleasure to write this reference for Murray Coop in relation to his service regarding the sale of 4 Keyte Street. I found Murray not only to be professional in how he conducted the transaction between me and the vendor but also his understanding to our dissimilar life situation. I felt supported with positive comments and vision as I was purchasing a doer upper that I had very little knowledge about. His input was valuable with knowledge of location, sale prices in the area, to giving information on how to organise a property profile. He also arranged for a builder to complete a report on the property as I had no idea how to do this either. Once the transaction was completed he offered to replace the locks on the house (that he wasn't legally responsible to do) due to what the house was utilised for before purchasing and my concerns around safety. THANK YOU Murray. His PR skills were of high standards and I would recommend his expertise to others in the community. 23 May 2007
From start to finish Murray had my interests at heart. He believed in my home and was working for me every step of the way. This is an excellent result for me which I am overjoyed at. I tell everyone they must use Murray Coop if they want a professional service along the way to a great result!!! Vendors of 28c Whangarei Heads Road, Onerahi.
I was a little unsure of Murray's strategy at the start but the outcome was exactly as he explained it. A result within 10 days. We were very happy with the professional approach to our sale. " Vendor of 31 Fisher Terrace, Kamo.
We had our property on the market with another agent for a few months. Murray introduced us to his market approach and the result in just a few weeks was much better than expected. He used solid market understanding to achieve a fantastic outcome. Vendors of 2/209 Corks Road, Tikipunga.
Murray did a fantastic job. There was always lots of interest with a total of seven offers on my place. Murray worked the buyers to a better than expected result. Exactly what he said would happen, happened! Vendors of 173 Raumanga Valley Road
I just knew as soon as I started talking to Murray that he was going to do the job for me. Vendors of 63 Fisher Terrace, Kamo.
