Harrison Murray customers Raith and Amanda Perry got more than they bargained for when they sold their Northamptonshire home through the agents – a £5,000 luxury holiday.
The family won the amazing holiday after choosing Harrison Murray’s Duston office to sell their home, and were then entered into a free prize draw.
There were smiles all round at Harrison Murray’s Northampton head office when the Perrys and their children, Maddison and Liberty, were presented with their prize during a champagne reception – travelling from their new home near Birmingham to collect the £5,000 voucher and £1,000 spending money.

All sellers who instructed one of Harrison Murray’s 15 branches between November 2009 and April 2010 were automatically entered into the draw and the Perry’s name came out of the hat.
It was Raith who initially took the call from Harrison Murray’s commercial director, Nick Salmon, telling him of their win. “I was numb, I thought you were joking and I couldn’t believe it!”
The holiday destination has not yet been chosen but Florida is top of the list. Raith added: “When I heard we had won I went straight down to the travel agent and came back with a pile of holiday brochures!”
The Perry’s chose Harrison Murray as their estate agent because they had bought and sold through the company twice before and received an excellent service. Amanda explained: “We’ve been really spoilt throughout our dealings with Harrison Murray. There’s no hard sales pitch, unlike other agents who try to push you to use their services. It’s the little extra things that Harrison Murray does that make the difference. Our negotiator, Daniel Travill was always really helpful – he even called us from his home although he was off work with a broken ankle!”
Nick added: “This is the first draw of its type we’ve done and it’s been really worthwhile. The winter months are normally when activity levels fall, but the holiday promotion meant that many sellers chose Harrison Murray over other agents.”
