"We want the process of buying and selling to be the celebration it should be rather than the daunting process it often is today."
Thirty years ago I had a vision - to create the finest real estate company in the world. What motivated me was the excitement of shaping an organisation that excels at every level. That still drives me today.
At McGrath Estate Agents, we aim to be the best. We strive to shine in every area of our business, continually reinventing ourselves as we find better ways to achieve our clients' goals. We are a learning organisation. We regularly review our structure, systems and processes, asking ourselves: How can we improve our service to our clients?
While our main focus is selling and managing residential property, we have a range of complementary services to make it easier for you to do business. As well as our residential and property management teams, we offer expert help in the areas of home loans, project marketing, investment sales and commercial sales & leasing. We want the process of buying and selling to be an exciting, seamless experience for you.
You could say we're high tech and high touch. We use technology to maximise results while continuing to offer excellent customer service.
Our reputation is built on:
Integrity: you can rely on our advice
Communication: we market properties effectively
Customer care: we value our clients and express this in our relationships
Results: we achieve superior results in every situation
To succeed as an organisation facing today's business challenges, we continually develop our people, refine our systems and upgrade our service standards. More importantly, we believe in the business of being human. We value our clients and business partners, understanding that good working relationships need care and consideration. As we move forward and expand we continue to be enthusiastic, optimistic and grateful for your support.
I am delighted to work with the best and brightest people in the industry as we serve your real estate needs.
Why select McGrath as your managing agents?
1. Our size allows us to specialise
Our business is built on a structure that delivers 6 star customer service. Everyone at McGrath Property Management has a specific role allowing us to better service our clients.
2. Maximising your return
We don’t believe that just collecting your rent is managing your property. It’s about maximising your return and protecting your asset. Our team will guide you on how to maintain the property in a manner that will maximise your rental return and the long term value of your asset.
3. We are thorough and selective
Comprehensive reference checking is carried out on all prospective tenants and a 100 point ID validation process is used to confirm identity. We never hand out keys for inspections and all prospective tenants are personally shown through your property so we may further gauge their suitability.
4. High performance and adding value
Anyone can promise you a result. At McGrath we guarantee maximum results with minimum stress. We approach Property Management differently, without a deep understanding of what makes your situation special, your property’s potential may be limited.
5. Unparalleled customer service and processes
Our systems and technology lead the industry, but what really sets us apart is our personal attention. You’ll receive regular updates from your Senior Property Manager, including monthly and annual financial reports.
6. Experienced local team
Our team of property managers provide the highest level of service and support to home owners and tenants. Your property will receive personal attention from our hand-picked, experienced team with a single point of contact to eliminate the usual run around most landlord’s experience.
7. World class marketing
We believe in quality marketing and priority placement, this quality has stopping power to make sure our listings are considered before our competitors. We are represented on all major websites with Guaranteed Top Spot position, coloured Rental Lists and brochures - which has given McGrath the advantage of securing and capturing the most enquiry and the best tenants at the best price via this marketing strategy.
8. McGrath database
We have a database (Virtual Agent) of thousands of tenants that all agents at McGrath contribute to, this in essence taps into “out of area tenants” that other competitors do not have.
We believe in a regional office approach because we know tenants also look regionally, not just locally. Our offices have area specialists that cover a wide area which enables us to communicate with each other. The tenants we are currently running with are ‘hot’. This is a regional strategy, most brands are disconnected from each other and lose this communication.
9. Zero tolerance rent arrears
McGrath is one of only a small number of agents that are authorised to “direct debit” tenants bank accounts for rent payments. Using this system, 98% of our tenants rent is paid on time.
10. Securing a suitable tenant in the quickest possible time
Our team includes full time leasing consultants, who are 100% focused on finding you the best tenant in the shortest possible time.
Tenants love dealing with us! We are the brand that is known in the industry as transparent and honest and with this we believe listings with our premium brand attached to it will elevate the property to the top of the must see properties in their price bracket. In essence, McGrath listings are viewed first because of our distinct style.
11. Regular rental market reviews
Three months prior to lease expiring, we will contact you to discuss your options with the lease. We will provide you with an up to date rental market assessment, advice on whether the tenant is suitable to stay on and negotiate a new lease on your behalf.
12. Detailed property inspections
Every detail of your property is carefully recorded and photographed to ensure that you are not held responsible for any tenant damage.
13. Access to qualified tradespeople
We have a team of fully qualified tradespeople on our books, who we have dealt with for many years. We can arrange any repairs or quotes on your behalf. No works are organised without your permission, unless in an emergency situation. We are also more than happy to take details of your preferred tradespeople if requested.
14. The spin stops here
Our team of experts will assess the current rental market and provide you with an analysis of the highest potential market rental for your property. We also will not over value your property in an attempt to win your business. You get the best information without the spin.)
Recently I engaged the services of McGrath property manager Olivia Ellis and I must say her customer service has been nothing short of amazing, as John McGrath promotes a real 6 star service.
George S / Sydney
Being a 1st time landlord, she quickly answered any questions that I had, promptly responded to my emails / calls and more importantly put any concerns I had to rest. I felt that she really cared about the property and had my best interests at heart, which is vital when dealing interstate!
Therefore I would like to thank / congratulate Olivia on a job very well done, the property is in the process of being leased as we speak.
I Know my property is in great hands.
Thank you again Olivia!
