Helped me buy home
We had a great experience buying a house in Oakwood with Jon last year after being referred by family who bought with him a few years ago. Jon is extremely responsive to work with. He was always on time to show us houses and usually responded almost instantly to phone calls, emails, or text messages. As first time home buyers we had a lot of questions. Jon takes his time and doesn't hesitate to point out issues with houses that weren't so obvious, as well as clearing up things that may seem worse than they are. He's very knowledgeable about the whole process as well as any sort of home improvements that might follow. We highly recommend Jon. Less ... More

Jon was so helpful in helping us find our home. He was quick to get back to us via phone or email, even texting! He knows a lot about home improvement, the communities of Dayton, and the loan process- he's more than just a realtor. He even offers a free moving truck to use when moving! He is a real asset in home buying, and his knowledge is evident in his work

Helped me buy and sell homes
Jon was incredibly helpful when my wife and I purchased our home on Old Springfield Road in Vandalia in 2012. He was instrumental in the negotiations and guiding us through our decision process. He has a great team and is highly recommended. Jon pushed us when appropriate and was willing to listen to us as we considered neighborhoods not originally in our target. More importantly, when we needed to move fast on a property, Jon was willing to work at all hours to set up inspections, review disclosures, sign paperwork - everything. My wife and I highly recommend Jon and will use him again when we sell and purchase a new home for our family. Less ... More

Jon did a GREAT job with the listing of my wife's parent's home. Even though their home was just a modestly priced, older home, he provided good information on the market, was responsive, and did a bang up job with a video tour of the home. Anyone wanting to see the house had a very good presentation of the work we went into preparing the house for sale. Preparation counts! We had an offer the next day, and this is where Jon really showed his expertise. Even though we were attending a school program for my son, Jon was able to work with us to scan and e-mail documents to provide a timely offer/counter offer. His recommendations on our negotiations saved us thousands as we got our asking price, even countering on one point that I didn't think would matter to the buyer, but it did. I would highly recommend Jon to anyone who's looking for a reliable professional who's worth his commission. Less ... More

Jon Murray is wonderful to work with during the home buying process. He was respectful of my needs, found listings that met my requirements, and responded to questions in a knowledgable and timely manner. Jon made the process enjoyable. In addition to helping me, Jon has listed a house for my parents and helped them find renters for a property on two occasions. Jon's listings were well done and the photographs were above and beyond what you see in most listings. My elderly father can be quite the "character" and difficult to work with, but Jon was patient and responded to my father in a positive and productive manner. Jon Murray is a nice guy and a true professional that I would recommend to anyone with real estate needs. Less ... More

We were selling a house that needed some work and weren't expecting to get top dollar for it. We figured 55-60k would be a good price considering the condition. However, when the first few people to see the house gave us ridiculously low offers. Jon was brought on and suddenly we had people offering us more respectable amounts. Within three days we had three offers and one was only 5k off of our asking price. He did some good work.

Jon was a wonderful realtor to work with. My husband and I were first time home buyers and he not only made the process easier to understand by explaining each step and decision, but he also made us feel comfortable in making our biggest purchase together. He was honest enough to show us both the highlights of each home and the downfalls so we felt like we could make informed decisions without being pressured. Whenever we had questions, he would answer phone calls or e-mails within the day. Even after the purchase of our new home, he worked hard to make sure agreements in our contract were followed through by the previous home owner. I would recommend Jon to anyone buying a home in the Dayton area. Less ... More

Jon has helped our son several times in his quest to buy a home. Jon could have put our son in a home the very first time that he met our son, but he did not. He educated our son each step of the way. Jon has shown us several homes, given us web sites that fit our needs and has supported us in every decision along the way. He has never pushed us into a decision that would benefit him, but has answered all of our questions that would help us. We have given Jon's name to several people and they have been very impressed with him and have purchased a house from him that has fit their needs. I would and do recommend Jon every chance that I get. I keep several of his business cards available and hand them out to people who are looking for an excellent realtor and home. Less ... More

When my husband and I decided to purchase our first house, we had no idea where to start or what to do! I first came in contact with Jon online because he had a ton of listings that we were interested in. He guided us through every part of our home buying journey, from the very beginning. As first time home buyers, we fell in love with one of the first houses we looked at, and because it was such a good deal, found our way in a bidding war with another buyer and we ended up losing out on the property. We felt kind of discouraged but Jon was there without a doubt to encourage us to keep looking... He put together another day of home tours and we found a house that was perfect for us and even better than the first... It had just came on the market (also thanks to the Mls listing page he set up for us to give the most recent info on properties that fit our needs) so we were one of the first people to see it. We put in our offer and got the house! From putting in an offer, to home inspection, all the way to closing, he was there every step of the way. He even met us at the house just because I wanted to see it one more time before everything was final. He's an awesome realtor and I would highly recommend him to anyone searching for a new home!

Mr. Murray was recommended to me from a friend in 2013 and I have been 100% satisfied with him as my realtor. I own a house in Greenville, OH where the market isn't the greatest. I also was on the fence on either renting/selling. So I was a little nervous on what to do with my property. Mr. Murray has been simply awesome with quick responses and actions; sending status emails on a regular basis and any updates on my property. Mr. Murray has proven himself to work VERY hard and be VERY patient with me. I would recommend Jon Murray to anyone/everyone who is looking to sell/rent their home. I will work with Mr. Murray through with my current tenants and will continue to work with him until I sell the house. 5/5, 10/10, A++++ Less ... More

He made recommendations as to what the buyer was asking us to do or expenses they wanted covered. He was easy to get ahold of and returned calls/emails in a timely manner. His sense of humor kept the process from becoming too stressful. I would highly recommend Jon for anyone looking to buy/sell a home in the Kettering area

Jon helped me me look for and purchase a house in downtown Dayton in fall 2014. From the very beginning it was clear that he is an expert in the local area and in real estate in addition to being very friendly. Jon spent time with me to help create my criteria in looking for a house. He always gave his unvarnished opinion which I valued a lot. Because of him, I ended up with an amazing property at a great price. I will definitely be using him again in the future.

Jon was recommended by my daughter after he sold her house despite a tough market. In the past 18 months Jon found a perfect house at a great price for my daughter and a few days ago located a great condo for my wife and me. In each instance, Jon not only showed us many properties but refined the search to specific areas and types of housing as we progressed. After we found a place Jon suggested mortgage companies based on both price and service. Same for insurance and title companies. He was right. The places he recommended were very good and obviously looked after Jon's clients. He is more that a real estate agent, I think of Jon as a friend. He's always quick to respond to his phone, text messages, or email. Less ... More

Jon Murray is the king of real estate. Not only is Jon completely courteous, friendly, respectful, approachable and diligent, but his experience was apparent after our first house showing. We quickly realized that Jon is not only extremely knowledgeable in real estate processes but also construction, which was very important as we were looking for an older home to renovate to make our own. He would make suggestions about the structure and what could be possible when we asked, which helped us make the best decision for our first home together. Jon will seriously get to know you and your wants and needs, unlike most realtors we worked with before. Jon just made another lifelong client and friend. Who else can say that their real estate agent is a friend who you trust and would ask for advice about anything home related? Now, we are living in, enjoying, and working on our beautiful home in Oakwood, OH! Thanks Jon - you're the best! Less ... More

I consider Jon to be a 5+star realtor. He has always been extremely knowledgable in all aspects of buying or selling a home. He helped us sell a home in 2012, on Yorkshire place in Kettering . We got top market for it and were very pleased it sold so fast. With his years of experience he knew just how to stage it so it would look its best. And with the wonderful marketing tools he has available, like the video tour it sold very quickly. He is always honest with me and an excellent negotiator. He helped me then buy my first condo on my own in 2014 on Tarpon a Bay Dr in Miamisburg. We looked at a lot of places together and I knew he would not steer me wrong. There is no one I would trust more to go through the buying or selling experience with me. I am always grateful to have Jon on my side! Less ... More

Jon helped me sell my house on Bataan Drive back in 2014. It was my first time and I had no idea how to find a realtor to do this. I received a card concerning a house he was selling near my area and decided to give him a try. He replied to my inquiry the same day and we met a few days later. It felt like I was talking to an old buddy and he made everything very relaxed. I gained a TON of knowledge about selling a house that Google just doesn't provide. He worked with the $ number I gave him and we actually came out very well. If I had stayed within the area, I would have used him to find a house without even thinking twice. Please just stop searching and check out Jon! He has years of experience and knows the area extremely well. Oh, and the most important piece of information: he sold my house within a few weeks!

Jon is the best. I say this as someone who bought three houses in the Oregon District with Jon over 1.5 years.

If you've ever had to navigate the short sale or bank-owned buying process, this is no small feat! He is patient, super on top of things, and great about making sure everything stays on schedule.

Jon is a top-notch realtor and quickly responds (usually within minutes) to emails and voice mails. We were in a predictament and we needed to find our daughter a home quickly. Within 24 hrs of contacting Jon, he was able to send us 80 homes to review and rate. He then lent his expertise of the Dayton/Huber Heights area and we were able to eliminate additional houses. We flew out 2 weeks later and spent 3 days with Jon walking through 40 properties. It was exhausting but we found the home we all loved, in a great neighborhood and for a great price! Without Jon's professionalism and persistence, we would have never seen the house we selected. The owner wasn't cooperating and so Jon worked his magic to ensure we were able to see this property. If you want the "Best of the Best" then you must call Jon Murray. The ENTIRE process was handled by Jon and he made sure every detail was taken care of for us. We were out of town buyers who had never been to Dayton OH and it was a risk to pick a realtor from an Internet search. We can't say enough about Jon. He knows real estate, is honest and will work extremely hard for you. He's truly amazing! We have bought over 10 properties and this is the only agent we will endorse. Less ... More

So glad we discovered Jon! We wanted to sell our house in Dayton Ohio and upgrade to a larger home. Over the past years I?ve worked with several Realtors and Jon is far and away one of the best Realtors that I?ve ever had the pleasure to work with. Some of the Realtors out there must think the job is done when they get the listing and put the sign in the yard. It seems like most of them just sit back and wait for a call. Not Jon! He always would inform us on a weekly basis on how many calls, e-mail hits, inquiries, etc? that we had on the property. That is the one thing that most realtors do not or will not do, and for us; it meant a lot! He was very proactive on selling our home. He always pointed us in the right direction and answered any questions we had. I feel fortunate to know a good Realtor like Jon Murray. He is an experienced professional Realtor with a broad knowledge of the real estate sales industry. It?s nice to know that I don?t have to look for anyone else to cover all my real estate needs.

Jon Murray seriously rocks when it comes to realtors! He not only helped me buy my home, but helped me sell it too! I wanted to buy my dream home with my new husband, so we met with Jon, and just sat around chatting so he could get to know us better; the conversation never felt forced, which I liked. Within a week, he found us the perfect place to call home, and start our new life together! Then years later, my husband and I went back to him, because we were ready to sell our big dream home and travel more! So the gears went into motion, and within 8 weeks he had the house sold! His dedication to the customer, and down home friendly demeanor, makes working with him an absolute joy! Jon Murray is the real deal when it comes to realtors! He really knows his stuff, and makes things happen!!! Less ... More

Jon helped my wife and I find a home in 2008. He was great and easy to work with and he always promptly responded to any of our inquiries. We are currently looking to buy again and picking a realtor was simple- Jon Murray! We cannot wait to write another review for our current buy/sell transaction, because I am confident it will be equally as great since we are working with Jon again.

It has been great working with you Matt and we are going to find you a new home here real soon. Mark my words. If you are reading this and have a large ranch in Beavercreek with a basement I have a buyer! Contact me! Jon Murray

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!

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

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

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

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!!
