Murray Dawson

Commercial Sales & Leasing Commercial

Murray began in the Real Estate industry in central Sydney NSW in 1987, just as the Wall Street stock market crashed. Despite challenging starting conditions, a year later he purchased half the business and enjoyed a great deal of success as a selling partner until returning to New Zealand in 2000 after 25 years away.

Settling in Hamilton he was initially a Waikato Sales Manager for New Zealand’s largest specialist Rural Real Estate business until 2007, when he took over as General Manager of the Waikato’s oldest Real Estate business, comprised of 7 branches and 80 plus staff. From 2011 he held roles in corporate Real Estate franchising, as GM of a group building company, then engaging in specialist business broking and the acquisition of green field land for development.

In 2017 Murray joined Barfoot & Thompson’s largest branch at Pukekohe as a Sales Manager, commuting daily from his Hamilton home. During his time there, the branch was continuously the company’s No. 1 branch office and twice judged as New Zealand’s No. 1 large urban office by the REINZ.

He is a Licensed Real Estate Agent (AREINZ since 2000) and held a Real Estate Agents Licence NSW, Australia (AREINZ equivalent) from 1994 to 2009).

Murray’s broad experience across all facets of Real Estate practice brings a wealth of knowledge to his role with Lodge’s long established and successful Commercial Real Estate team.
