About Colin McMurtrie

"Quality means doing it right when no one is looking." - Henry Ford

Following 27 years with the NZ Police and stints in professional sport and with the Drug Detection Agency, each day I bring to real estate a strong work ethic, exceptional people and communication skills and meticulous attention to detail.

I have assisted international organisations with training, mentoring and operationally in Australia, the Pacific and South East Asia, giving me a great appreciation for different cultures and many forms of communication.

I am pleased to have joined my wife Raelene McMurtrie as an Associate Salesperson at the Barfoot & Thompson Browns Bay branch. Both Raelene and I share a passion for property and I'm quite proud of the fact that I built our current home. We also both have a desire to help people with both buying and selling their homes, be it the first time, a second or subsequent upgrade, a downsize or a further addition to a property portfolio.

We can help with every aspect, making the process as seamless and stress-free for you as we can, so do give me a call.

What my clients say

Raelene is the ideal salesperson. She is personable, knowledgeable, keeps you in the loop and gets the job done. She has the calmness of a therapist when things get tough and has the ability to think laterally and come up with interesting solutions and alternatives to conventional approaches to real estate. I highly recommend Raelene if you have a property to sell.

Suzanne Perazzini

Raelene provided a very high level of service. She is professional and respectful at all times. Raelene supported me through a very difficult process to get my home ready for sale, always calm and reassuring. She was always available and responded promptly to my communications - even late at night! Raelene worked hard for me, and I would highly recommend her and Colin, to friends and colleagues.

Lisa Jones

"I met Raelene several years ago when looking to purchase. When it came to selling our house I always wanted to work with her as I feel she treats buyers and sellers with respect and was very helpful. I would absolutely recommend her to anyone!"

Penny Family

Raelene and Colin. Thank you very much for your efforts in selling my house. I was impressed by the well-organised and efficient way you dealt with all aspects of the sale. I found dealing with you was straightforward and your level of communication was very good. I would recommend you to anybody else selling their house.

Dennis Pain

"Raelene and Colin really do go above-and-beyond and put their clients needs first every time. This was the third sale with Raelene and I'd simply not list with anyone else."

F Renner Family Trust

Raelene and Colin McMurtrie, were excellent in selling our property in Zita Ave, Matakatia Bay, Whangaparaoa. I contacted four agencies who were keen but never followed up after the first call. The McMurtrie's were and were able to effect a sale. Also they were always on time and followed through on what needed to be done. I would especially like to thank them for their professional way they went about it.


Bruce & Nerolie Wilton

We would like to express our heartfelt thanks to Raelene & Colin McMurtrie. We were referred to them by a close friend, who bought their first home from them. It all happened just after the lockdown in July 2020 and you were both diligent and delivered on what you promised.

Most of all, you understood the pressure we were under while selling our house during this difficult time and looking for a new house at the same time.

You worked hard to help us achieve the purchase of the house we wanted. Nothing was ever too much trouble for you. You were always available either via phone or email or in person and you even went above and beyond to help us achieve our goal.

You answered all our inquiries in a timely and always in a professional manner and even after the purchase you were always available to answer any questions. We would not hesitate to recommend you.

Marie, Alain & Steven

I worked with Colin and Raelene to sell a property where I was acting on behalf of a third party. They provided all the information and options to allow me to make informed decisions from start to end. Their communication, both verbal and written was always very responsive, knowledgeable and professional. Colin and Raelene are very personable and friendly, easy to work with. They work well as a team and understand each other’s strengths. Overall it was a very stress-free process. I would recommend them to anyone looking to sell a property.

Lisa Burtenshaw

"Late in 2019, we engaged Colin and Raelene McMurtrie to sell my elderly parents house on the Shore, which was auctioned in March 2020. My parents had occupied their home for around 40 years and once the furniture truck departed there was still a monumental amount of work required before it was market-ready. Given no family were living in Auckland, we were looking for a trustworthy, professional agent with high integrity, willing to undertake the necessary contract management required to ensure the property was presented in the best possible light. We also wanted an agency with sufficient market reach and resource base to undertake a targeted campaign to attract the largest number of genuine potential buyers and the experienced staff to run and complete the auction. At the outset, Colin and Raelene presented us with a professional and well researched market appraisal, but it was their personal qualities and they way in which they worked together as a team that impressed us the most. They efficiently managed the entire process to a high standard and because of their effective communication we felt we were in control at all stages. The property sale price exceeded all our expectations. If you are looking to sell or buy property on the Shore, we would highly recommend you contact Colin and Raelene."


"Colin and Raelene recently sold my house in Torbay for me and achieved an excellent result at auction, achieving a price that was pleasantly surprising. Their advice on preparing the house for sale was spot on and I am sure influenced the final sale price. Throughout the process they kept me informed and ably guided me through the process. This was difficult at times as part way through the sale I moved to Wellington. They even arranged for me to listen in to the auction as it progressed by getting their manager to phone link with me. They were great to deal with and I would have no hesitation in recommending them to anyone contemplating selling their home."
