Jon helped my husband and I buy our house, and the experience was wonderful!!! He and his team was always focused on our needs which really helped the process go so much smoother. Using any other realtor than Jon Murray and his team would be an absolute mistake.

Jon was excellent from the very beginning of the process all the way to the end. Jon was very professional, and absolutely driven to provide the best customer service possible. Jon has now helped us buy two homes, and I would never use or recommend anyone else for my real estate needs.

We were in an "emergency" situation in finding a home for our daughter and we were from out-of-state. From the minute we contacted Jon, he went into high speed and quickly gathered over 80 listings for us to review online. Once we narrowed down our selections, he provided his expertise of the area and further narrowed down homes for us to view. Within 2 weeks of notifying Jon, we flew into Dayton, spent an entire weekend looking at 40+homes and by the time we left had a deposit on a great home!. Jon's expertise did not stop there....our closing went flawlessly and move-in (with the use of his truck) was stress free. I would recommend Jon to anyone and everyone seeking to work with a top-notch, honest real-estate professional. We've had a few issues/questions after our closing and Jon still responds to us with a sense of urgency. Its nice to know we have someone we can count who knows the area well. You won't be disappointed working with Jon - he's truly a #1 real estate agent. Less ... More

When my wife and I realized that our family was out growing our house and selling our house in a down market was going to be a huge challenge, we were not sure where to turn. We had seen Jon?s signs around our neighborhood and thought, he looks as trustworthy as the next guy, let?s give him a call. My wife did the legwork and the next thing I knew Jon was in our kitchen walking us through everything he would recommend we do to get our house on the market. He helped us put the plan together. In short, we get the house ready to sell and he would do the rest. With a narrow window of opportunity to sell our house without a big loss, I was somewhat skeptical. Jon was patient and reassuring but honest. He never led us to believe it would be easy but he also did not let us give up hope. At the end of the day, Jon delivered. He cleared every hurdle we faced confidently and we were able to sell our house for the right amount. Jon exceeded all of our expectations. After renting for a year, we are ready to buy again. I know Jon is our man and I would highly recommend you make him yours! Less ... More

I actually found Jon through a listing on Zillow and then visited his website. I timidly contacted him through email to which he promptly replied answering all my questions and offering to help. This, after I was all but ignored by another agent. Jon proved extremely devoted to helping me navigate through the stresses and confusion of a first time home purchase. I was quite impressed with his extensive knowledge in all facets of real estate, as this newbie had lots of questions. It was quite apparent that Jon knew the ins and outs of Kettering and Beavercreek communities that I was interested in. Don?t go it alone! Go with a Pro! I?m recommending Jon to everyone I know!

Jon was wonderful throughout the search for our current home! Jon must have taken my wife and I to at least thirty different homes in the area as we searched for the perfect home that met all of our needs and wants without compromise. Jon was diligent and up to date in his research of new listings, price drops, comparable listings and overall market values and prices of the area. I would without hesitation refer anyone to Jon Murray for any and all real estate needs he exceeded our expectations. As my wife and I now seek a small piece of commercial real estate for an upstart business we are again turning to Jon for his knowledge, guidance and expertise. Less ... More

We were referred to Mr. Murray from a friend. We are a military family. He is not associated with some of the military buying/selling programs, but gives his own discounts and help as if he were. We were impressed by all of the different avenues he had for advertising our home. My husband is very skeptical of using an agent - he would rather do it himself and keep the extra. Mr. Murray stayed in touch with us through all of our traveling and other activities we were involved with in our PCS. The market that we were selling in we figured we would try him for 6 months and then revamp our plans - maybe rent. Within a few months we had an offer on the house. The person who finally bought it had many questions and concerns and was very slow at making a commitment. Mr. Murray was there answering all of his questions and helping him a long so that we were able to get a sale. He as very personable and friendly. He was never pushy. He sold himself and he followed up on his promises. My husband and I were VERY happy that we used him. If we ever come back to the Dayton area we will definitely use him again. We have referred several friends to him. Less ... More

Jon is a great realtor. Responsive, knowledgable, hard working, organized, good communicator/listener, and easy to get along with. I particularly loved Jon's expertise in the complexities of distressed properties. He helped us get a great deal on a forclosure, and with very little headaches. All in all, Jon sees home buying as an investment decision. He had consistently helpful advice for us about considering future resale potential and keeping the big picture in mind. For this reason alone, I would highly recommend Jon to you, especially if you are a first time home buyer like I was. Less ... More

Jon did an excellent job selling our old house and finding us a new house. He is not afraid to use new technology to assist him in his job...which is refreshing for a realtor. He is a very honest person that will keep you informed and stay in constant contact. He is such a great realtor that he was able to sell our house in 10 days in a resession.

Jon is like his customer, no Jon becomes his customers. He puts himself in your shoes to show the same emotion that you show. He is caring in way that I have never seen with other realtors. I would use him over and over top realtor in Dayton and Cincy in my opinion.

Jon Murray has helped myself and my family find homes. He is a very knowledgeable and experienced realtor. Being a single woman buying a home, there were many things I didn't know as far as being a homeowner, doing repairs, budgeting for repairs, landscaping, etc. Jon was able to answer all my questions and concerns. Jon made everything easier, less stressful and more enjoyable.He was able to find the home of my dreams and I was very happy with the experience.

My experience with Jon was the best experience I could have asked for. Me and my wife had a list of things we wanted in a house. Jon went above and beyond to help us get these things not once but twice. The first house we had a contract on fell through due to inspection issues. We felt terrible but to the rescue Jon came. Jon was back on the hunt without skipping a beat. That is when he found us our perfect house. Jon always stayed in contact with us during this entire process. If my wife or myself called Jon and didn't talk to him during that call I knew I would get a phone call back shortly after. An overall statement I Would and do recommend anyone to use Jon. Less ...

Jon was a tremendous help with selling my house, and helping me purchase a new one. He was very up front and knowledgeable about what I could expect selling and was very patient and helpful while helping me find a new home. He was in constant communication with me through the entire process. I can't think of a single thing he could have done better than he did. I'd recommend Jon to anyone looking for a realtor. Thanks again Jon!

We moved to Arizona and needed a quick sale on our home in Ohio. Jon kept us informed weekly, we never had to reach out to him. He was very honest and upfront and made the process stress free considering we were on the other side of the country. We currently have a rental property in Ohio we are considering selling and will definitely be using Jon for the sale. Cassandra Northup Glendale, AZ

We were first time home buyers who were looking for a steal. Jon helped worked with us for nearly a year taking us out on many occasions. Looking back, we really had no idea what we wanted. He did a great job of answering our questions and helping us to figure out what type of house/location we actually wanted. He was always very patient with us throughout the entire process. He is very easy to talk to, not only about the housing process, but just as a person. He worked construction for several years prior to becoming a Realtor, so he has very good insight into the quality of the build of houses, and the possible costs to make repairs/renovations. He answered messages in a very quick manner, many times within the hour. I have no reservations in recommending Jon Murray as your Realtor. Good luck! Less ... More

When searching for a house jon personally drove me around and was extremely patient. Although the house i bought was the fifth i looked at, my wife and i looked at over forty more to compare. We were so impressed with his personable nature that we decided to use him to sell our previous house. His professional video was the icing on the cake to a quick sell and an abundance of activity. Any of my friends get him as a reference whenever selling a house or buying come up. If you are reading this i would definitely store jon's name in your contact list for any future endeavors.

After working with another realtor that would have tried to sell us anything we looked at, Jon was a breath of fresh air. I remember my shock when he agreed that a house we were looking at wasn?t for us. He didn?t try to push houses on us that he knew would not work for our family. When we did find a house we loved, he helped us understand that some of the ?issues? we saw as first time homebuyers were not that big of a problem. Jon has construction background, so he guided us through the cosmetic issues and assured us that he did not see any big problems. Because of the trust he built with us by not trying to sell every house we looked at, I had confidence when making our offer on the house. The inspection confirmed the house was in excellent condition, and we bought our first home! Jon did not disappear as soon as the contract was signed; he continued his amazing customer service through closing. Even after the closing, Jon still provides excellent customer service. Due to his construction background, he knows a lot of contractors, so when I do updates on the house I ask for his advice and referral to contractors. He did a really quick comparable of my house before I paid for an appraisal during a recent refinance transaction, and he has helped me consider the market when contemplating large projects such as adding a bathroom and finishing our basement. I would never recommend any other realtor besides Jon Murray! Less ... More

Being a fist time home buyer from out of state my wife and I had no idea what to expect but we got in contact with Jon Murray and he made our home search very easy and pleasant. My wife and I did not know anything about the area, but we knew what we wanted and Jon was very helpful. We visited Ohio for a weekend and we let Jon know we had to see all the houses on our list (38 houses). Immediately he helped us narrow our list down to the properties that matched our needs and the requirements for our children. It has been 5 years since we bought our house and we have out grown our starter home, we will be calling on Jon's services again by this summer. Thanks Jon you're the greatest!!! Less ... More

Jon Murray helped sell a condo I owned while I was stationed in Ohio with the military. It was my first property. About 2 years after purchasing I decided to list for sale in preparation to move to my next duty station. This was also around the time of the beginning of the recession in the U.S. so the real estate market was affected. Jon was always positive and realistic when he signed on as my agent. He kept me enthusiastic about finding a buyer while managing my expectations given my situation. He listed my condo and provided weekly feedback to the progress being made. I left Ohio in early 2009 to deploy to the Middle East. Jon continued his professional service, kept constant communication, and we eventually sold!! I was so happy the relief of a vacant property had be lifted. I only have Jon to thank. I would definitely recommend him to future clients for all their real estate needs. Less ... More

Jon was great. It was a breeze finding a home through him. He is very friendly and makes you feel comfortable and treats you like family. He really went above and beyond to help us find our first home. I recommend him to all my friends and family who are looking for a realtor. He is out there to negotiate with your best interest at heart. He is down to earth and tells you the truth. He was very honest when it came to looking at homes and getting the best house for the best price. He's wasn't just there to make money for himself and try and sell us the first house we looked at. There are a lot of realtors out there that can sell you a home and never speak to you again, but Jon Is by far the best choice. He really is in this business for the right reasons and loves working with people. He kept in contact with us and made sure we settled in and that we loved our home, never met a realtor that did that! Jon will help you find your dream home like he did with us and make it a fun and pleasant experience. Less ... More
