Customer Reviews

Very honest, great communication, this agent was always updating us on how things were progressing. I would highly recommended this agent.
I've both bought and sold through this agent. He knows the Gungahlin market like the back of his hand, so much so that he helped us purchase our current home when the vendor's real estate agent wasn't negotiating. He's honest and forthright, and has a great sense of humour which is necessary during the point end of business, and got us the best price possible in the time range we needed. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this agent whether you're buying or selling your Gungahlin area home, and I'll be going straight to this agent for any future purchases or sales in the Gungahlin area. Thanks mate.

I cannot fault this agent and the team at McGrath. He persisted until we chose him as our agent - not to the point of being a nuisance, but providing market information and property sales updates. We felt very confident in his market knowledge and appraisal. His marketing was first-class, from the photos to the property description and advertising. And having worked in the industry, I had high standards. More importantly, he followed through with buyers and achieved us an outstanding result prior to auction above our expectations. I could not recommend this agent highly enough.

When we were considering selling a number of our properties locally, this agent was recommended to us as the right agent for the job. He has proven himself to be every bit as wonderful, knowledgeable and effective as he was recommended to be. We highly commend this agent as the right agent for your needs.

We had the pleasure of first meeting this agent eight years ago when we were downsizing and were looking to purchase a house/land package. At that time, this agent was relatively new to the real estate industry, but upon our first meeting we were impressed with his down to earth persona, combined with a detailed knowledge of the product he was selling. Needless to say, we purchased our house through this agent which was a smooth and trouble-free experience. We watched over the years as this agent became somewhat of a powerhouse in the Gungahlin housing market and when it came time to sell our home, there was only one agent we bothered contacting. This agent provided us with a no pressure sales strategy that we felt comfortable with. Our house was marketed in a highly professional manner and we were able to sell within six days of the property being initially advertised. At no stage were we pressured to sell at a price that was below our expectations. This agent not only met, but exceeded our expectations. The follow-up service by McGrath Real Estate Gungahlin was also very professional. Our experience is that this agent not only builds relationships with his clients, he maintains those relationships long after the sale has been completed. We would recommend this agent to anyone contemplating selling or buying a home in Gungahlin.

This agent's knowledge of the local market is exceptional, which really shone through when recommending various sales and marketing options. We found this agent to be honest, setting realistic expectations and we were pleased with his efforts to keep us informed throughout the process. We were also very impressed with the quality of the marketing and photography services provided by the McGrath team.

This agent is a real estate agent who far and away exceeded our expectations from the initial meeting through to completion of the sale. This agent's professionalism, market knowledge, and very friendly personal skills made him a pleasure to deal with. My wife and I are extremely happy with the service provided by this agent and we have recommended him to our friends as the best real estate agent we have ever dealt with.
Reviewed by:
This agent is an experienced and capable agent who prides himself on his excellent market knowledge, communications skills and service delivery. He strives to secure the best possible deal for his clients and provides outstanding advice and feedback throughout the process. He is honest and open with sellers and purchasers and is a very capable negotiator. A very professional operator who is worthy of consideration by anyone selling property in and around Canberra.

I've known JT for a number of years but have never had the opportunity to call on him to help out with a home sale. I had no hesitation contacting him as I trust and respect his approach and proven track record. He did an amazing job attracting potential buyers and provided with great advice along the way. The fact that I had buyers interested on the first weekend my home was up for inspection was great. His professionalism and communication were great. He kept me informed of progress at all stages and I was impressed with his enthusiasm to get the best result possible. His dealings with the buyers was also highly regarded. I would not hesitate in recommending this agent to anyone selling their home.

This agent has done an excellent job in looking after my property. His knowledge is impeccable and is trustworthy. He communicates very well and I am very happy with his professionalism.
Reviewed by:
This agent approached this sale in a very professional manner. He achieved a price at the top of the quoted range through creating competition between several interested buyers. We could not have asked for a better outcome.
Reviewed by:
This agent was excellent to deal with during our recent sale in Amaroo. This agent met with us and discussed his suggested strategy for selling our property. We felt at ease with this agent having bought off him previously. Leading up to our sale, market conditions in our direct area changed slightly, however we relied on the experience of this agent to advise what the best approach was to selling our property. Within 5 days of advertising, we had our buyer and had exceeded our expectations. We would recommend this agent to anyone selling in the Gungahlin region.
Reviewed by:
This agent exceeded all our expectations in the selling of our house and the purchasing of our new home. His manner, customer focus and ability to recognize a potential buyer are exceptional. Our home was sold in record time and for a fantastic price. We couldn't have asked for more. The whole process was stress-free and an absolute pleasure. Thanks.
Reviewed by:
This agent sold us our last house and when it came time to sell that house, we chose this agent to sell it for us. As a result, we have had experience with him both as a seller and a buyer and I have to say that we wouldn't choose anyone else. This agent put up with us during a very stressful time, he put a lot of hours into providing a personalised service and helped us to sell the house by a very hard deadline. In a process when everyone seemed to be letting us down, this agent was a rare and very welcome exception. He went over and above to not only sell our house but also facilitated the purchase of our new house. He was trustworthy, delivered on his promises and was just a good bloke to have in our corner. We can’t recommend him highly enough.
Reviewed by:
This agent is a professional agent in every sense of the word. Punctual, honest, no nonsense - my type of guy. I have no problem recommending him to anyone wanting to sell a property.
Reviewed by:
We were not looking to buy but when we came across our new house and needed to sell our old house quickly, I called this agent straight away. He fitted us into his busy schedule to give us a preliminary valuation that enable us to make our financing decisions and when we listed, he was able to help us get it on the market not only quickly but with a solid marketing strategy to get us the best price. His ability to read buyers and understand which ones are serious or not is extremely valuable. This agent secured our sale in under a week and for a price that exceeded our expectations - this agent is easy to work with, passionate about his job and a genuine guy which is what you need in a real estate agent when you are trying to get though the stressful process of buying and selling houses.
Reviewed by:
We selected this agent because we wanted our property to be marketed by someone who would represent us well. We believed that this agent would be able to negotiate the best price for us. This agent and Craig were committed to our sale, providing detailed analysis of the market, keeping us informed of the process and the interest of buyers. After only two open homes, we had several offers above our predetermined sale price. The final sale price exceeded our expectations. We would not hesitate to recommend this agent as an agent to sell your property.
Reviewed by:
this agent impressed us from our first meeting until settlement when we sold our home. The marketing package was perfect and we had seven offers and four genuine parties negotiating well over the asking price after just one open house. We would not hesitate recommending this agent to anyone who asks. - Mick
Well it's only taken me a year but I'm finally getting around to emailing you to say a huge thank you for all that you did for Brian and I in selling our townhouse in Ngunnawal and also in purchasing our house in Harrison. We are thoroughly enjoying life in our new place and truly appreciate you and your staff in all that you did in the buying and selling process. Our move to a bigger house came at a very good time as it turns out our son Luke was born in May this year and it was lovely to bring him home here to Harrison. I hope this email has found you well and still having lots of success. Your attitude and commitment to ensuring the best outcome for us both in buying and selling was very much appreciated and I have never hesitated to recommend you to friends and acquaintances who are looking to sell or buy real estate, particularly in Gungahlin. Thank you once again. - Sharee, Brian and Luke
Dave and I would like to thank you very much for your personal attention and excellent service during the marketing and sale of our property in Nicholls. From the very first moment we contacted you, we were impressed with your easy going professional attitude which made us feel confident that our property was in good hands. When we made the decision to sell our house, we contacted three local agents including you to discuss the market value, marketing strategy and costs associated with selling. We found that your attention to detail, background research, and explanation of preferred marketing strategies and realistic assessment of market value was the most comprehensive and competitive compared to the other agents. We also felt the marketing of our property was handled very well especially in relation to the professional presentation and photographs on the internet. We only had to have one home open over one weekend and thirty groups of people came through which definitely exceeded our expectations. Overall though, we were most appreciative of the time and effort you spent negotiating on offers with the perspective purchasers during the week following the home open. It was during this time that we definitely realised the value and importance of having a good real estate agent working on our behalf. I have changed my mind about trying to sell a property privately. You had to put in a lot of effort prior to the exchange of contracts as well as having us put extra pressure on you by trying to sell and purchase at the same time. Anyway, thanks again this agent . We really appreciated everything and wanted to wish you the best for the future. - Jane and Dave
I have just purchased back into the Canberran market through this agent and Bret Loughton from your Gungahlin ACT office. Whilst the vendor is quite rightly the client, from a purchaser perspective, this agent and Bret's management of the marketing and sales negotiation through to contract exchange has also been exemplary. I will certainly recommend this agent and Bret and McGrath Limited to my family, friends and work colleagues. It is common place in the industry to hear about things that go wrong but my experience as a seasoned vendor or purchaser has been industry best practice in action. - Helen
