Michael Murray takes over Coldwell Banker area operation with aim to build by acquiring smaller firms, add associates
It's been close to two months since Michael Murray was appointed regional senior vice president of Southeast Florida for Coldwell Banker Residential Real Estate, owned by parent company NRT.
Mr. Murray started his real estate career as a sales associate about 40 years ago, gradually excelling and holding higher-ranked positions.
As a sales associate, he handled residential and commercial transactions and then escalated to managerial positions and regional president roles.
He has been successful at quickly growing the offices he was put in charge of, drawing in sales professionals and increasing sales activity.
Now, Mr. Murray is taking the reins in the Southeast Florida region, a position previously held by Charles Richardson, overseeing 17 offices and more than 1,700 sales associates in Miami-Dade and Broward counties.
Coldwell Banker aims to grow, he said, by acquiring smaller realty firms and hiring sales associates who are looking to build careers in real estate.
"We're looking for growth," he said. "We're looking to acquire companies, we're looking for mergers, we're looking for acquisitions."
Mr. Murray shared his plans for Coldwell Banker with Miami Today reporter Yudislaidy Fernandez at its Coral Gables office.
