About Jenny Murray

Jenny hit the ground running as soon as she began in real estate in 2012; listing her first property on her first day, she then had a property under contract in her first week, which sold in her first month.  And her subsequent career has continued to impress, cementing her reputation within the industry and local market as a dedicated professional with an expansive track record of sales success.

Driven by a passion for people and business, Jenny’s clients are consistently impressed by her solid work ethic, her accuracy and technical skills, experience and insight, and appreciate working with a real estate salesperson that is completely committed to the effective marketing of their property.  

Jenny understands the importance of developing relationships built on trust while delivering great service. She strives to take away the stress that buying and selling can hold and make the process as easy, and fun, as possible. The many client testimonials Jenny receives reveal her secret for success: honesty, commitment, accuracy, and creativity. Put simply: Jenny works hard for you.

Jenny loves working with the proactive and dynamic team at Bayleys Gisborne and thanks to efficient administrative and management support, she is able to focus on what she does best; achieving great outcomes for her clients.

Jenny was in the Top 20 of Bayleys Residential agents nationwide for the month of February 2020 and also in the Top 20 of Residential agents nationwide for the most deals settled in the month of October 2019. She has also been the top agent overall - covering Residential, Commercial and Rural - in the Bayleys Gisborne office in July 2019, October 2019 and February 2020.  Having sold nearly $60 million worth of property in her real estate career so far, Jenny has a natural aptitude in particular for high end properties - as evidenced by her median sale price in 2019 of $504,906 from her 32 sales that year (while Gisborne’s median sale price for 2019 hovered around the mid $300,000’s).

Outside of the office, Jenny likes to stay fit both mentally and physically. She loves to travel, meet people and learn new skills. A newly discovered passion is recreational fishing, and she has even travelled as far as Costa Rica to catch a variety of game fish. She has recently become a novice snowboarder and her competitive nature and sense of fun can also be evidenced in her continuing to play senior netball at an A-Grade level with Tatapouri Sportsfit team. These activities require skills that are mirrored in those utilised in her role in real estate - patience, the ability to read the ‘game’, a willingness to go the extra distance and a desire to be the best while adding an element of humour and fun, where appropriate.

Jenny is appreciative of all of the opportunities her role affords her and therefore loves to be able to give back to the community. She does so both by volunteering her time and also actively sponsors; Chloe Underdown - Archery, Tatapouri Sportsfit Netball Team, the Jenny Murray - Bayleys Beach Netball Tournament, and she is a committee member for the Gisborne Tatapouri Sports Fishing Club – and sponsors various competitions including; Harbourview Marine and Carpet Court Winter Contest; Ladies Fishing Competition; Enterprise Motor Group Bay Bonanza; and Liquorland Marlin and Tuna Tournament.

For those wanting an agent who is genuine; direct and driven; who provides clear and concise communication, and gets satisfaction from helping you achieve your goals - Jenny Murray is the agent for you.


Jenny Murray made the entire process of buying and selling so easy. Excellent communication and balance of friendliness and professionalism. Not only did Jenny get us into our dream home, the sale of our property was seamless. Thank you Jenny, we highly recommend you, and the Bayleys team to anyone looking to buy or sell.

Ryan & Nicola

Whenever we went to an open home viewing we were always met with a warm and friendly welcome by the agent and given good information about the property and always received a follow up call. Jenny Murray was the agent at one of the open homes we went to. After chatting with Jenny she said “ I’ll have to find you a house “ and that’s exactly what she has done, so a Big Thank you to Jenny 😊

Sue & John

The marketing campaign was outstanding and we were very happy with Jenny. We would recommend Jenny and Bayleys to anyone.
K. Henderson & D. Atkins
Jenny composed herself very well at all times, we felt Jenny had our best interests in mind and worked hard to get a quick sale on both of our properties during a quiet period in the market (Christmas time). She kept in contact throughout the entire process and has continued to do so!
R. Crombie
We liked dealing with Jenny because she was professional and knowledgeable. Having never been in the “seller situation” before, Jenny devoted a generous amount of time to us and gave us quiet confidence that the sale would be successful. She worked tirelessly to get that important sale, appreciating the stressful situation the family were under, and showed compassion to us all.
We would deal with Jenny again for your honesty and commitment, and we would highly recommend you to anybody requiring an excellent real estate sales person.
H & S. Dods
Jenny’s performance was great. The sale wouldn’t have happened if Jenny didn’t keep at it.
M. Stewart
Jenny is personable, friendly, professional, efficient, honest and knowledgeable about the Gisborne market. She inspired confidence from day one. She worked very respectfully with our tenant which was much appreciated. Bayleys has a wee gem with Jenny and I would certainly recommend her to any person selling or buying in Gisborne.
J. Bradley
Jenny made us feel important and valued throughout the sale process and after.
She is easy to talk to, always professional and communication was always fast, clear and helpful.
J. McLaughlin and P. Brown
We found Jenny to be very willing to listen and then to negotiate on our behalf until the final outcome where all parties were satisfied. We found that we were able to contact Jenny at any time we needed and she was very professional at all times.
Pru & Kiri
Jenny was always prompt in communication, professional at all times with a friendly manner and a gorgeous big smile on her face. We were kept fully informed of the process and feel we have made a friend rather than met a new real estate agent. Overall Jenny’s performance was very friendly whilst being professional and we would highly recommend her to anyone.
K & G. Hickling
Jenny was always professional, clear, honest, and prompt in her communication and we knew what was happening every step of the way.
It was important to us that Jenny talked us through the first evaluation and she spent time with us to explain everything. We always felt like we were her only client but we knew she had lots.
J. McLaughlin & P. Brown
From the time I first met Jenny, I was most impressed with her open friendly manner. At the same time she was not at all “pushy”. This was the second property that Jenny has sold for me in recent months and I would recommend her to anyone thinking of buying or selling.
T. Baker
Jenny was really good and looked after a very nervous client. I feel I have made a good friend.
B. Parker
Jenny is a real pro, easy to deal with and makes the process a lot easier.
K. Schierning
Thank you Jenny for your assistance. We arrived just as you were finishing your open home on a lazy Sunday afternoon. If you did not take the extra time to show us through the property that day, we may not have returned again. We enjoyed your professional and friendly service and are looking forward to moving into our new home.
S & J. Blake
Many thanks, great service, would definitely use you again!
M & B. Ingram
Communication was very good, we received information promptly. Jenny kept in contact with good timing and frequency, and a very good professional business relationship has been established. We were very satisfied with how negotiation went at Auction and the gift received afterwards has very much been appreciated.
W & Y. van den Worm
Very professional and highly capable, Jenny was very good to work with. We knew what was happening at any time. She provided good reports and good feedback and was prepared to go the extra distance when comparing houses and prices. Overall a positive experience.
K & T. Phefon
Jenny ticked all the boxes for us, we highly recommend her to others.
