Murrays was established in Stroud in 1994, by Richard Murray with his parents Clive and Jenny Murray, a particularly brave move at the time, as the country was in recession. However, the family, all of whom had worked in the industry previously, saw the enormous potential in Stroud and its surrounding villages, for an Estate Agent who really understood the unique nature of ”The valleys and the vale” and could bring that message to a local, national and international audience.
As the firm has grown over subsequent years, offices were also opened in Minchinhampton and Painswick, the latter run by James Murray, Richard’s younger brother who started his property career in London. The intervening years have seen enormous changes in the profession foremost amongst which is that so much marketing is now done at arm’s length on line, via the various property portals. The firm has enthusiastically embraced all aspects of this new technology while never losing sight of its ethos, of offering the highest levels of personal service to all its clients as to be expected from a family run firm whose name remains to this day, above the door.
