We recently purchased a property in Coolum Beach with Murray & cannot speak highly enough of his professionalism, knowledge, courtesy and ongoing assistance.
Being Sydney residents, we would love if Murray could teach the local agents there about integrity, honesty & customer service.
Also, have since dealt with Mike on the rental side & have found him to be very helpful and professional.


By Kelvin and Christine in Yaroomba

Murray is outstanding in his professionalism. Murray is an agent that gets the job done and is there from start to finish. He goes the extra mile with excellent communication and feedback. He has the ability to create firm relationships with potential buyers and get positive results. This is the second home we have sold with Murray and we are more than happy with both outcomes which speaks for itself. A great team with his wife Chloe. Thank you both.

Professionalism, Quality, Responsiveness, Value

By Annette Smith in Peregian Springs

My husband has dealt with many Real Estate Agents in his time and as a first home buyer myself, we have found Murray to be exceptional. His professionalism, attention to detail and communication were outstanding. Nothing was ever too much trouble, he was always willing to help - going above and beyond. He treated us with much courtesy and respect at all times. We highly recommend Murray for all your Real Estate needs - you will not be disappointed!


By Kerrie and Clarrie in Peregian Springs

Thank you!


By Kaye and Mike in Peregian Springs

Buying a home from a distance is a difficult task, but Murray and Chloe at Steele Realty expertly and efficiently guided us through the maze.

We’d viewed the property online and called Murray to discuss. He then gave us a real-time virtual tour using FaceTime, poking the camera into every nook and cranny we would have looked into ourselves had we been at an open home, whilst providing a descriptive, but stunningly accurate commentary. He knew the property well enough to answer all our questions, especially directing us to the highlights of the home and explaining the vendor’s expectations.

Chloe’s local knowledge reassured our instinct that this was a great location for us to establish ourselves in, and she guided us through the paperwork to complete the sale. Right through the process, Murray was very receptive to our numerous enquiries and requests, and because of this, we were able to reach a hassle-free settlement that suited us all.

Steele Realty provided us with the gateway into our new life in Peregian Springs, so cheers to Murray and Chloe!

By Cassie Reeve in Peregian Springs

We were looking to down size and our first phone call to Murray, he was able to arrange an inspection on a property we had seen immediately. He was extremely knowledgeable on other properties in the area that had sold. He went above and beyond to help us secure our new home and we would recommend him to anyone buying or selling.

Steele Realty

By Jennie and Tim in Peregian Springs

From the first meeting with Murray we felt at ease and confident we had chosen the right person to sell our home.
We wanted an agent who was honest, knowledgeable and advisable and not just tell us what we wanted to hear, but gave us security in making decisions throughout the process. This led to our house selling within 24 hours of going online. It was a complete surprise but definitely worth it!

Outstanding Agent

Murray Steele is by far the best agent we have dealt with. Always available with excellent communication skills and local knowledge. Easy to deal with with great negotiating skills. Highly recommended.

Exceptional Agent With Integrity!!

By Susie and Chris in Peregian Springs

Exceptional Agents and lovely people, who are absolute professionals and dedicated in providing a service to both sellers and purchasers that we had just come to believe was no longer available in today’s society until our recent experience with Murray and Chloe.

Murray is a genuine man and very approachable, He is passionate about his profession and seems to sincerely enjoy wanting to help people with his experience and knowledge, he listens, is very fair patient and reasonable and went above and beyond to help us through a very difficult time.
One of the difficulties we have had is finding an agent we could trust, after so many bad experiences prior to meeting Murray Steele,

The reality process was always a great passion and strength of my partners however since he suffered a severe injury he is no longer able, So I have had to quickly try and learn how to navigate and look after this process mostly on my own with so many bad experiences since from people taking advantage of him, us, our vulnerability and situation until this experience! Murry has restored some of my hope that there are good people still willing to do right by others.

Very few people have what it takes to stand out in a crowd for us now, however once meeting and dealing with Murray he does exactly that! We could not recommend Murray highly enough for anyone looking for an Exceptional Agent with integrity in the area! Thank you Murray!
Warm Regards

A ray of light on the Sunshine Coast

We would recommend Murray to anyone looking to buy or sell a house

By Mark and Tina Owen in Peregian Springs

My wife and I have been looking for a family home in Peregian Springs for quite a long time and have viewed several with Murray over the last 18 months. We were happy that the house we finally found was listed through Murray as he has always been very professional in the way he conducts his business and always helpful and prompt in responding to any questions that we had. With Murray being from New Zealand like ourselves, he was able to advise us on matters regarding the purchase of a house in Queensland as he could highlight the differences in conveyancing between the two countries. We would recommend Murray to anyone looking to buy or sell a house.

Patient and very professional!

By Diana and Gary Sherwood in Peregian Springs

Murray was absolutely amazing! He went above and beyond assisting me with endless questions and requests for information and assistance! Nothing was too much trouble and I was the buyer! Patient and very professional! Thank you so much for all your help!

I would highly recommend Steele Realty to anyone considering buying, selling or leasing property on the Sunshine Coast

By Anne Johnston in Peregian Springs

After inspecting a property that was being marketed by Murray, he was keen to assist us. The property we had inspected did not suit our needs but Murray, after asking us what we were looking for, suggested we inspect another that may be what we were after. This property turned out to be exactly what we had been looking for. Murrays’ professional manner made negotiating and ultimately purchasing this property very simple and straight forward. He explained everything clearly and was happy responding to numerous questions & queries from myself. I would highly recommend Steele Realty to anyone considering buying, selling or leasing property on the Sunshine Coast.

We recently had real estate dealings with Murray at Coolum Beach on the Sunshine Coast

By John and Cheryl Piper

In the vernacular understood on both sides of the Tasman, he is a Bloody Beaut ! In other words we would unhesitatingly recommend him to any person wishing to buy or sell in the area. His honesty, integrity,knowledge and enthusiasm are second to none. His assistance in our purchase made an easy ride of a somewhat tricky transaction. We wish him every success and look forward to reacquainting with Murray and Chloe when we return to the Sunshine Coast.

A great result

By Ian Gittus in Coolum Beach

I have now sold 2 apartments with Murray and have one more listed to be sold. I chose Murray for a few reasons. Firstly his communication skills are exceptional. Secondly, he never gives up and is persistent and methodical in his approach. We have achieved 2 sales in a tough market with a lot of competition. Its the little things that matter most in a competitive market, and Murray has the competitive edge over other agents in the area. Can highly recommend Murray.


By Erica Hoffman in Coolum Beach

Murray was a pleasure to deal with when we purchased our investment property. He was very knowledgeable about the area and we appreciated how genuine he is. We would definitely recommend Steele Realty to anyone buying or selling.


By Debbie and Leon in Coolum Beach

We had a great experience dealing with Murray over our recent purchase in Coolum Beach. After only one meeting he a found a house that was perfect for us and helped to make the deal go very smoothly. He was always happy to answer queries and to help out with things even after the sale had gone through. I would highly recommend Murray


By Lisa Miller-Ditchburn in Coolum Beach

Murray was courteous, friendly and always kept me up to date with what was happening. He was professional in his dealings but generous with his time. He spoke with kindness and honesty. A trait many real estate agents do not possess. Although he was working for the sellers, I felt he was genuinely happy for my purchase. Without a doubt, I would recommend Murray Steele”

It has been an absolute pleasure working with Murray Steele

By Jessica and Andrew in Peregian Springs

Moving from overseas is a stressful experience which was made much easier with Murray’s assistance with finding a home in a new town and in a new country. He is approachable and genuine and is knowledgeable about both the local and international market.

He listens and is thoughtful, carefully considering your needs and is able to find you the best options that fit your ideal of a dream home that is also within your budget. He is an excellent communicator and we were extremely impressed by his organisational skills. We initially flew in from overseas and had one day to see as many potential properties as possible. This was easy as Murray lined them up for us making the most of the limited time we had and was extremely efficient.

After purchasing the property, Murray went above and beyond for us to ensure that everything ran smoothly and to plan for settlement. Even after settlement, Murray was in touch to ensure we were well looked after. We have no hesitation recommending him to anyone wanting to sell their home or looking to purchase a property. Murray’s professionalism would satisfy the expectations of even the most discerning client. We would not approach anyone other than Murray in the future

Certainly a pleasing level of professional services

Murray met all of my expectations in terms of listening to my views about the property and my objectives in selling the property and then provided me with regular feedback on activity from potential buyers and honest assessment of the market conditions.
