Who are JBM Estate Agents?

JBM Estate Agents is a family-owned and run estate agency based in the beautiful Scottish Borders town of Peebles. Our small, but highly successful business was set up by mother and son, Myra Murray and Scott Murray back in 2010, built on the foundations of honesty, mutual trust and respect. Our winning team has been completed with the addition of family member, Greg Murray in 2020.

All Property Sales Handled

Although there is a multitude of estate agencies to choose from in the Scottish Borders, what we felt was lacking from many of the existing businesses was a team that handles all kinds of property sales, from country houses to town centre flats. This gives us in-depth knowledge of the whole housing market on a local level. Something not many other small and family-run businesses offer.


Another key aspect of our business that sets us apart from many of the other firms out there is the fact that we are completely independent. Being independent means, we can adapt to the market and respond instantly to the needs of our clients.

Customer-Focused Agency

Although our expertise lies in property, we are a client and people-focused agency. As a family-run business with a real passion for helping people find the homes they want and need, utilising our collective experience, we put a lot of time and effort into each of our clients. We will spend time with you, getting to know you and learning about your needs, desires and hopes for the future. This gives us the insight we need to negotiate for the best deals.

Small But Mighty, Results-Driven Team

Aside from the family members of our team, Mark McGorum joined in 2019, the team is small and close-knit. What we lack in numbers, we more than make up for in the results we achieve. The team includes Myra Murray, mother to Scott and co-founder, who is still actively involved in the business and always welcoming and friendly to our clients. Scott has a real passion for property and loves helping the various clients we deal with from one week to the next. Helping them to achieve their property goals, whatever they may be. Greg is best known for his can-do attitude and great personality. He takes care of property viewings and administration matters. While Mark brings with him 10 strong years of experience in the industry. In the couple of years that have passed since he joined, it’s been abundantly clear how much of an asset he has been to the team.

Enviable Reputation

One of the reasons we have had success for so long, as a business, is because of the enviable reputation we have. Evidence of this can be seen from looking at our reviews. We are an agency that is known to go out of our way to help our clients. We don’t just meet expectations; in most cases we exceed them.

Rather than being open just 5 days a week, we are available to help every day of the week, meaning we can give you the help and support you need when you need it. We will fit into your schedule, not the other way around.

Happy Customers...

I am extremely pleased with the professional service I have received to date from Scott and Myra at JBM Estate Agents. I have used JBM Estate Agents twice, once for the sale of my house in Craigerne and lately for the let of my cottage in Tweed Green, Peebles. Scott has always been very clear, positive and up front on all aspects of my sale and let. I would highly recommend the service he gives. I like the fact he always keeps me in the picture giving me lots of feedback from viewers, buyers and what's happening in the market. I would highly recommend Scott and JBM Estate Agents. Many thanks for everything. Mr Abid Karim Peebles
Scott provided a fantastic service the moment I walked through the door. It was reassuring having his knowledge and experience to help with the whole process. Thanks very much Scott. Mr James Harrison Peebles
JBM provided an excellent professional and comprehensive service throughout the entire process. A high level of support, guidance and awareness of the local property market was clearly evident. Mrs Susan McDonald Peebles
I received excellent service from JBM Estate Agents who sold my property very quickly. I would definitely use them again. Mr Andrew Scott Peebles
Excellent service throughout the sale of our home. Very helpful with all our needs & requirements. Would highly recommend anyone thinking about selling their home to get in contact with Scott & Myra. House sold within 4weeks & the fee was very very reasonably priced for what you get back in return. Thank you so much. Mr Robert Docherty Innerleithen
Scott provided excellent customer service from the minute I walked through the door at JBM Estate Agents to enquire about selling my house right through to the conclusion of the sale. Everything went very smoothly. Both Scott and Myra struck a great balance between professionalism and friendliness. Top notch. Thank you! Mrs Sheila Innes Peebles
We were absolutely delighted with the service and attention we received from Scott. From the beginning he was most attentive to all our requirements and we always were confident that we would sell our property at the best possible price. The sale was completed without complications and our stress levels much lower than we believed possible. Highly recommended. Mr & Mrs James Adams Peebles
Scott and Myra are so very professional, always there to answer any questions you may have. Selling a house is one of the most stressful thing you can do and they made it easy. I have no hesitations in recommending them. Mrs Marian Phelan Peebles
As a buyer I was really impressed by Scott's proactive approach to selling houses and was pleasantly surprised how hard he worked for us. I can only imagine JBM would provide a second to none service to those looking to sell their house. JBM would get my business. Mr Glen Saxton Peebles
We had super customer service with JBM. Scott was very quick at organising viewings and was very good at keeping myself and the viewers up to date with any changes. He managed to sell our house in 4 days!! I would thoroughly recommend him. Many thanks. Mrs Rachel Hall West Linton
