Tell Us Your Story

Chris and Andrea are the absolute best you are going to find at their job.

Extremely professional, incredibly responsive, and willing to help you understand any parts of the selling process you might have questions about. We started talking to Chris and Andrea almost 3 years before we finally pulled the trigger on selling our house, and they never made us feel pressured to move forward or like we were not valued customers. And once things got started, they took care of everything. Best Agents Ever and would gladly work with again in a heartbeat (if we still lived in CA)

Carter Ebbesen

The Murray Team is professional and experienced they came to my house and offered a variety of listing options.

Listings are realistic and not over the top and that brought in solid buyers.

Seller - Lake Elsinore, CA

Tina͏ was the best!

!! Tina worked with us, showing us multiple homes until me and my wife were both extremely happy!! I would not hesitate to recommend Tina for all your real estate needs!!!

Todd Staples

Chris͏ was amazing.

This was difficult time for me, and with a hectic work schedule, I wasn't the best with communication, or timelines all the time, thankfully Chris was! He was always ahead of the game and working hard for me. It was like having a very trusted friend, with my best interest in mind working on my side. He got me exactly what he said he would! He made the process as easy as he could. The technology they use and how they present a sale is fantastic. He also helped with additional issues I had at the house to help get the house ready for sale and sold. He knows and understands the market and kept me informed the whole way through. It was only on the market maybe 2 wks before we started a 30 day escrow and even that was finished before the 30 days! I am very grateful to Chris and Andrea. If you're unsure, just call them, as soon as you meet them, you'll understand how salt of the earth these folks are, and how well they know their business.

Lisa͏ has to be the best agent I’ll ever work with.

She was punctual and attentive to my every request. As a young home owner I didn’t know what to do but Lisa came to the rescue and showed me how easy buying a home should be. I was impressed and will hire again for future representation. 10/10

Vinit Nand

Sold one house through the Murray Team and purchased another approximately a year later.

Great team that's there for you during and after the process.

Buyer & Seller - Hemet, CA

AWESOME͏ AND PROFESSIONAL My͏ wife and I have known Lisa for many years.

Lisa has not only helped us with finding rental homes in the past, but she also sold our home in Murrieta within 3 days. All of the advice she gave us about the sale of our home was greatly appreciated. She is very detailed oriented and is very well versed in her profession. We wouldn't use or trust anyone else in the industry.

Gary Makapugay

This is the 3rd Real Estate transaction we have experience with Stella. Here we thought things couldn't get any flawless well this 3rd sale was just that! FLAWLESS transaction from start to finish. We highly recommend Stella Torres and you will never be disappointed by no means. We love Stella and we can't wait to hook up with her and her team again.

Mandi Craze

Chris at Remax has been my real estate advisor for at least 15 years, I would never sell or buy a house without him

Mark Chandler

Chris and Andrea are the best!

We met with 4 different realtors and decided to go with them because of their communication and information they provided upfront. Andrea was really helpful, she gave us guides on what to expect and was always available to answer our questions and just be there for me anytime I needed anything. They also helped find us our new home and we couldn't be happier! If you want the best, you have to hire them, they are a power couple! Thank you again for getting us our dream home!

Michelle Hernandez

Professional͏ and efficient I͏ have used Chris before and was very happy with his services.

So he was the logical choice when I needed to sell again. He is very professional, got top dollar for my home and made the process easy.

Steve Gooselaw

I͏ would recommend Chris to EVERYONE!

!! I was with another agent and the house was just sitting for almost 45 days and we really needed to sell quickly as my husband had already got a transfer out of state. After canceling the other agent I found Chris through a coworker. Chris came to my house with all the comps from the area. He was so well prepared and knowledgeable about the area and told us exactly what he was going to do to help get us moving and on our way. He was there every step on the way to answer all our questions. Everything went according to plan and now we are on our way to our new adventure.

Dawn Widney

We worked with Cory͏ Ryan who helped us sell some vacant lots in Desert Hot Springs.

He was knowledgeable, honest, reliable, and collaborative. He helped us to understand the specific real estate market as well as the relative value of our properties within that market. He kept us informed and always included us in any decisions about sales strategy. Cory was always responsive to any questions that we might have. He was easy to work with and ensured that we were always up to date on sales status. It was a pleasure to work with Cory.

Gerald Pelzner

For our home sale, Chris (and Andrea) were really superior, and this in a crazy market!

The marketing itself (including the 3-D) was further than we had previously ever encountered. The strategic bidding process was handled very well, and follow-up through escrow completion was super. Many, many thanks!

Seller - Anaheim, CA

Not enough words to describe the professionalism of Summer, she was great.

We had issue with individual purchasing our home. Summer was on top of it, gave updates regularly.

Seller - San Jacinto, CA

Chris͏ was a good agent.

We chose him because he was familiar with the Hemet four seasons properties and he had knowledge of short sales. It was tough time for my Dad as he did not want really want to sell his house but Chris made it a good experience for him

Michelle MacDougall

We have worked with Cory since 2009 and will continue to do so.

He is the only realtor that we trust with our real estate needs. He is great at communicating; just a phone call or text away. May I add very knowledgeable. We highly recommend him if you are looking for a seamless and smooth transaction whether it be buying or selling a home. You won't be disappointed

Seller -San Jacinto, CA

Chris͏ and Andre were spot on with pricing, market expectations, and created a smooth selling process.

Chris͏ and Andrea visited us in our home and offered their expert advice on how to best show our house in pictures and in person. We followed all their suggestions. They let us know what to expect as we went through the showing process. Their predictions on the current market trends (slowing down) were exactly as described. They told us our house should sell in the first weekend. It did! We had multiple offers and were able to sell the house far above the listed price. The closing process was also extremely smooth. They told me it was unusual how easy our home sale was. But, I think they had something to do with it. We are very happy we used them as our listing agents.

Amy Martin

Love Tina so much!

Went through two agents and finally found Tina! She made the process so much easier and stress free with her knowledge, humor and attentiveness. She became more than agent; she became a friend.

Buyer - San Jacinto, CA

Tina͏ Rogers made the home buying process a breeze!

Tina͏ was very knowledgeable, answered all my questions, she made the whole homebuying process a breeze, with her knowledge she took her time to explain things to me that I didn’t understand as a first time home buyer it’s hard to trust anyone but I fully trusted Tina and she made it happen for me, I would definitely recommend her to anyone and I will definitely work with her again if I ever need to sell my house or buy another house, she’s awesome.

Javs Alonso

I met with a few realtors suggested by Dave Ramsey.

I like them all, but Chris was persistent about earning my business and that's exactly who I wanted negotiating offers for me.

Seller - Lake Elsinore, CA

I live on the East coast and engaged Chris because I liked the number of homes he was selling in a short period of time.

While I was searching for someone he would call or email me weekly. I signed, there were title issues on the property in California he stayed with me until I cleared the issues up. He got a buyer in a very short time, the buyer was dragging we forced the buyer to make up their mind they bought the house. If I had another house to sell in California I would engage the services of Chris Murray again.

Seller - Banning, CA

Cory was a pleasure to work with.

He clearly understands his market and provided me with valuable insights about that market and where my properties fit in. I was included in all discussions about pricing and buyer negotiations so I never felt "out of the loop". Most importantly, I felt I could trust Cory. I would never hesitate to work with him again should the occasion arise.

Seller - Desert Hot Springs, CA

Seamless process from start to finish.

Chris and Andrea are incredibly detail oriented, professional and kind. They helped us sell our home, we had multiple offers and we sold the home within 7 days and closed escrow in less than a month!. I recommend them to everyone I know looking to sell a home.

Incredible͏ Experience Stella was absolutely incredible!

She took so much pressure off our family. She was extremely knowledgeable, professional, and helpful. And extremely kind! I would very highly recommend her for selling your home. She looked out for all of our family. We cannot think are enough for the great experience!

Heidi Hunnel

I live on the East Coast and engaged RE/MAX Empire Properties because of the number of homes he was selling in short periods of time.

Not being familiar with CA real-estate rules/laws I think I may have been shorted a little. CA real-estate processes are entirely different than out East. However bottom line Chris sold my house as contracted. We were communicating all the time, he was responsive to my questions. Would I hire him again? Absolutely!

Robert Swartz

Tina Rogers performed exceptionally well and sold my mother's home quickly.

She was patient, resourceful, and made great suggestions that were invaluable. I would definitely recommend her.

Gerald Haynes

My realtor Tina was very accommodating.

I had only certain days to look for homes and she would list 4-5 homes to look at. As I saw several houses online or in person my wants would change and she would say alright and the next week she would have me look at those. I was about to agree with my husband and restart looking next year. She didn't get mad or try to convince to keep looking. She held my hand. The last house we looked at had a-lot of my wants. With Tina help going through the finances, escrow and seller and all my calls. We have our home. Thanks Tina for all your help.

Miriam Crestik

Chris and the team did a fantastic job walking me through the process of buying and selling a home.

They made what felt like an impossible task seem possible, and were able to get my family into a great home. I cannot say enough about their level of care, insight and kindness. It has made the difference for my family and I am eternally grateful.

Brian Arthun

Chris and his whole team were amazing.

They made the process very simple and easy for us to deal with. When you have to sell a home all you can think of was about open houses etc. it is very overwhelming and with Covid-19 we had no idea how this all would work out, but it was great how they notified me of any time there was going to be a showing, even a day or to before which was so nice. I would differently recommend him and the team for both buying and selling.

"I generally have trust issues. This was my first time selling a house so was very stressed out. Chris and his team made this very quick and painless for what it is. 20k over listing and the house was on the market 4 days. It's a lot of money and most realtors charge in the same ballpark- stop reading the reviews and hire this guy- absolutely 0 regrets!"

"I met with a few realtors suggested by Dave Ramsey. I like them all, but Chris was persistent about earning my business and that's exactly who I wanted negotiating offers for me.Chris and Andrea are professional, knowledgeable, and responsive to communication. I felt like the advice they were giving me along the way was based on a lot of past experience. They didn't just tell me what I wanted to hear, they were transparent whether it was good or bad.I was set on spending a bunch of money doing repairs to the house and taking 475k. Chris steered me away from a lot of the repairs and got me 25k over asking. We got about 25 offers and Chris was able to quickly determine which offers were risky based on many factors.Now that I'm a buyer I truly appreciate their insistence on using high-quality photos and the matterport 3d camera. It really helps get a sense of a property before visiting it. Thanks again for making a stressful process as smooth as possible."

"Selling a home in Riverside, California while living a state away in Arizona could have been a daunting task, but working with Chris Murray transformed it into a seamless and stress-free experience. From the onset, Chris’s communication skills were exemplary. Regardless of the time difference or the distance, his responses were always prompt, ensuring we were continuously in the loop and well-informed about every step of the process.One of the most impressive aspects of working with Chris and his team was their ability to handle everything - from the mundane to the monumental. Whether it was organizing lock changes or overseeing both minor and major repairs, the convenience and quality of the work they arranged far outweighed the cost of their services. It was evident that Chris only works with professionals who are as dedicated and efficient as he is, which brought a great deal of peace of mind.Furthermore, any potential hurdles that arose during the selling process were addressed swiftly and efficiently by Chris and his team, requiring minimal effort on our part. This level of service is rare and was immensely appreciated, especially given the logistical challenges of managing the sale from another state.In summary, Chris Murray’s professionalism, coupled with his exceptional communication and organizational skills, made the sale of our California home from Arizona not just possible, but also a very positive experience. His ability to navigate the complexities of the real estate market, combined with his dedication to his clients, truly sets him apart. If you’re looking for a real estate agent who is committed, efficient, and capable of delivering results with minimal hassle for you, Chris Murray is the person you want on your side."
