What our people say about us

Had a buyer lined up within a fortnight

I would highly recommend John and his team at Whale Coast! The advertising and photography were fantastic (almost had us regretting to sell). John had a buyer lined up within a fortnight (right on the mid point of his price guide) and the property was sold shortly after. Very happy! Thank you Whale Coast Realty.

Nathan & Jessica

Made purchasing easy

John clearly has lots of expertise and knowledge and put us in touch with the right local people to assist us with our decision to buy as the property we were inspecting needed a great deal of work and we had come from interstate. No pressure, just great help and support with the purchase.

Brian & Debbie

Knowledgable, personable and professional

He responded promptly to our initial market enquiry and gave good advice on the market value. Bryan was very helpful in providing contacts to assist us with the moving out process including clearing out and cleaning the unit to put it on the market completely empty. Bryan kept us informed during the period the unit was on the market and was professional in negotiating the sale. We are very pleased with his service.


Bryan is by far the nicest agent I’ve ever met!

He helped me with the purchase of my dream property which took a great deal of time & was very stressful. He was very attentive & did his best to make the process as smooth as possible. Highly recommended!


Great Agency

From the first meeting with John, my sister and I were impressed with his knowledge of Narooma and his easy-going, but professional, manner. The complete booklet detailing his Agency, his very competitive and low fees which includes expansive advertising made it a very easy decision to list our Dad’s home with John, after meeting other Agents too. It was refreshing to deal with both John and Kim in a manner that was not intrusive to us and selling Dad’s home in such a short period of time was just wonderful for all of us. I would highly recommend John to anyone looking to list their home in the region of Narooma.

Kim (Vendor)

Successful sale!

From the get go, my contact with Whale Coast Realty, and in particular with Bryan Coughlin, has been positive and helpful. It says it all that my property was sold 9 days from being listed for sale! Bryan's communication style is upbeat and positive. Very professional and able to answer all my questions promptly, he represents all that a good real estate agent should bring to a process which can be quite stressful. I would heartily recommend Whale Coast Realty to family and friends.

Jon & Zara (Vendor)

Great selling, John.

We had a lovely house, but it was on a sloping block. John did a magnificen job of selling our home, taking care to let clients know the "downside" to the home, but talking up the great views, new construction, the landscaped gardens, ect. He also deliberately targeted his marketing at appropriate demographics and areas. Whale Coast Realty have absolutely amazing staff who are always, not only friendly, bur also knowledgeable on their listings. Well done, John and your team!

Derek & Janice (Vendor)

John is so down to earth and shows a genuine interest in the sale of your property

John and staff were so helpful in the sale of our property and made us so welcmoe in the office. They always kept us informed 24/7. Many thanks again!

Why John Murray is the best Real Estate man we have dealt with

A friend introduced John to us. He sounded too good to be true but within a week he showed us what he could do. Work was needed on the house and he not only arrange it but had it completed during Xmas week. He assued us that the house would sell and put it on the market at what seemed to us an optimisic price. Within a couple of weeks it was sold at that price and for cash. With his back office team John's operation ran like a Swiss watch. Nothing was too difficult; everything was done ASAP. We wish that every commercial transaction went so smoothly. John Murray's ability and grasp of the local market kept us free of anxiety and made a dificult decision almost pleasurable. He is a champ!

Brendan & Joanne (Vendor)

A genuine, professional organisatoin that go out of their way to support all parties..

John and his team certainly know their business. As we experienced, they have a great respect and support from their community. We could not fault the commitment and uidance through the purchase of our new home, moving from Meblbourne to Narooma. We certainly recommend Whale Coast Realty for complete trust, confidence and realiable buying...

Stewart & Linda (Buyer)

Sold Sold Sold

John has been an outstanding agent. He conducted the sale of our investment property in a throughly professional manner. John was very knowledgeable of the local market and sold out property for the price we wanted. He worked hard and was always friendly and positive. I was kept up-to-date on all parts of the selling process. We needed a fast sale and John was the answer. I can't recommend John and his team enough.

Aaron & Sarah (Vendor)

John had a sound knowledge of the area and showed us what we were looking for

We are extremely happy with our new home.

Peter & Angela (Vendor)

Professional, Satisfying, Stress-free: Result!

John covered all the bases that other local agents wouldn't. With a wide reaching marketing strategy, great feedback and dedicated team. John achieved a speedy and satisfying result.

Karsten & Michelle (Vendor)

Very Good Agent

John and his staff at Whale Reality did an amazing job in assisting us with our purchase. Nothing was a problem and they clearly went above what was expected in working with us to secure our property without the "Hard Sell" that you can sometimes experience with other agents. I would not hesitate to recommend John and his staff in the future.

Well done John

I've very pleased we made the decision to engage John as our agent. He has strong local knowledge, is professional and yet friendly, nature/ down to earth, and presented the property to it's best advantage. He listened to us a liaised with us throughout the whole process, keeping us in the loop and respecting our views. Thank you John and team, I can happily recommend you and Whale Coast to others.



Very satisfied customers. John is a true professional to deal with. His attention to detail when presenting our home is excellent. The photo/ video shoot opportunity, in my opinion, is what sells your house and this was done very professionally too. Our house was sold in 1 week and 1 day! John also kept in touch with us throughout the viewings, imminent sale and finalisation of everything. A job well done in our opinion!

AAA+++ Whale Coast - 02 Jun 2018

With an ever demanding market, living in a small community, with half a dozen real estate agencies competing against each other you can rest assured Whale Coast has that X factor when wanting Communication, Presentation and overall feeling your house is in the right hands to be sold. Proofs in the pudding, after sitting idle for 3months with another firm, with zero interest, we took house off market, relisted with John, new fresh approach, new pics and higher price tag. Very next day BOOM! House has an inspection and offer put on the table. These guys drew attention from wide and afar, with potential purchasers still keen to view our house up until exchange, which we are very grateful for. These guys made us and our house feel important. The end result speaks for itself. Many thanks


No fuss honest agent

John was always very friendly, prompt, efficient and to the point. His office staff were also prompt, friendly and attentive. Highly credible agent and highly recommended.-RMA


The best in town

John has a great personality and full a knowledge regarding the areas realestate. A fine operator special in he’s video presentation. He chose a contract range and we received well into the upper quartile of that range.... Thank you John - 31 May 2018 RMA

John Murray achieves great result again

This was the 2nd property that we listed with John. After achieving a great result with our first property we decided to use Whale Coast Realty for the sale of the second property. Johns very pleasant manner is what helps achieve a great result. He has great staff who are all very approachable and are to be commended also on their obliging professional responses to any queries we had. If John or Kim were unavailable when we called they always returned calls promptly. Our requests for open home was met without any difficulty and achieved the perfect result for us. Johns negotiating skills brought us the outcome that we hoped for. We would happily recommend Whale Coast Realty and John Murray for any prospective property dealings. Thank you John and Kim.RMA
