Paul has supported us since we purchased a SMSF property in Seacliff 9 years ago & has recently sold our investment property in St Clair for a record price by $15k within the complex from a sale in May 2023 to a sold property in 3 days with only one open by Paul’s & his team professional and focus on win/ win for buyer & us as the seller. Cannot thank Paul enough for his advice over the years. His business will definitely be selling our property in Seacliff when we decide to retire.

I dealt with Paul on the buyer side and he was outstanding! So easy to talk to, professional and gets stuff done. I'd deal with him again and would recommend him to anyone asking.

Very professional team. We decided to went with McGrath Real Estate Group after recommendation from a friend. We met both Paul McGrath and Glenn Pagano who were both very professional and very helpful. Glenn took in charge the selling of our house. The house was on the market very quickly and sold at a good price. Glenn was accessible through the whole process. We would definitely recommend them.

Glenn at the McGrath group was absolutely brilliant! He was very helpful and willing to answer any and all questions we had. Purchasing our first house was made easy with his help. Thank you Glenn!

Tania is the reason for the 5 star rating!. Everything was smoothing and quick, from the inspection to the key handover. Very happy with the level of communication. Thanks!

We are really happy with the service & support given by McGrath Real Estate Agency. Special thanks to Jarrad Hext for coordination throughout the process.

Tania McCarthy, has been the best support system during our stay in our apartment. She was not just prompt with her communication but a solution giver in time during our leasing term. McGrath realestate group helped make our rental experience stress free! Thank you! Regards Karishma and Shashank

If I could give them more than 5 stars I would. Glenn was amazing not only during the sale process but with our many questions and queries after settlement. We've seen many agents that are not at all responsive or interested once the sale is completed but Glenn is always happy to talk to us about any queries we have. It is evident that he also has the same great relationship with his vendors. Very rare to see these days! I highly recommend Glenn and his team to anyone purchasing or selling a property.

I highly recommend Glenn Pagano from McGrath. I recently sold my house and found Glenn very professional and friendly, knew exactly what he was taking about and made the process of selling our house very easy, regularly kept in contact, a very smooth process. Would definitely go to Glenn again if selling or buying a property.

I was a tenant at two properties managed by Tania at McGrath Glenelg. She was a fantastic property manager, very easy to deal with, great communication and responsiveness. Anything that needed fixing or maintenance was done asap with quality tradespeople.

So far it has been a great experience working with McGrath Real Estate. Starting from the tenancy application process up until taking the keys, the support given by Tania McCarthy was excellent. Best customer service!

I am very happy with the way you manage my property. Also the communication level which i rate as very high. Please pass on my compliments to your staff, I bet you don't get many negative comments.

We wanted to say a very big thank you for your efforts and wonderful support / service throughout our stay at 22 Yeltana Avenue. We will miss the property as we built many happy memories there. We thank the McGrath team for your professionalism and kindness especially dealing with the exit (you guys are just amazing).

I highly recommend McGrath. They are very professional and friendly and it is easy to have business with them. I bought a house with them and am very happy with their services. Everything went very smooth and it was a fast and fair sale. They also helped me to find affordable renovators to make some improvements before renting this property. Now McGrath is my property management company.

I recently purchased a property through McGrath Real Estate, Glenelg East office, and as I am currently interstate it was all handled by phone/email. Paul McGrath responded promptly to all my phone calls and kept me updated with the progress. His staff were also friendly, helpful and efficient. I would recommend this Real Estate office.

I have found Tania as my property manager to be very responsive, personable, approachable, friendly and she has made the whole sign up process stress free and simple. Thank you!

The maintenance app is great, rent receipts emailed is appreciated. I was impressed with the professional manner of my property manager and the colleagues at the office. It was nice to be treated with respect as a customer and not an inconvenience.

McGrath Real Estate Group is an amazing Real Estate Agency. They have an amazing team who are are always looking to go above and beyond. Their focus is on their customers and in an industry that doesn't always have the best reputation, McGrath stands out as the go-to when it comes to Real Estate.

Excellent service. I have been dealing with Paul’s team for my investment rental for some time. They were amazing in dealing with my tenants and managing the property. I then decided to sell. Paul was highly professional, clearly experienced and maximised my sale (50k more than my maximum range). I am extremely happy and would not hesitate in recommending them for both property management or sales. If you’re after a seamless, professional and excellent communication, save yourself the headache and go with them.

I'm really happy with the service offered by McGrath Real Estate Group. I highly recommend McGrath because of the professionalism that the team shows and attention they pay towards responding to clients. My association with them as a tenant for a couple of years and entire tenure the support that they provided was phenomenal.

I am currently renting through McGrath with. I am very happy renting through this agency. They go above and beyond and has made me feel very comfortable in my living situation. Can strongly recommend this agency as a Property Manager.

Just moved from the UK we had a great help from relocation agent finding us this property then when we were still unsure. Our Property Manager helped by face timing us and showing us around the property again, all our dealings from the company have been spot on so far and we love our rental property. Very happy.

Assistance "above and beyond" in managing house purchase in Adelaide and support on relocation from interstate. Excellent communication skills and clearly an expert in supporting purchaser - as well as seller. Would highly recommend.

From the very first meeting Paul put us all at ease with his knowledge, experience and his get down to business attitude. Simply the best agent I've had the pleasure dealing with and always kept us up to date with what was going on at all times. Paul sold the house within weeks and made the sale of the property seamless and without stress. Thank you Paul

Glenn made the process from sign up to settlement an enjoyable experience. He explained clearly the entire process and was very approachable and returned all calls and emails. Best of all we sold for more than we first thought. We will be using and recommending Glenn in the future. Well Done.....

I can highly recommend Glenn Pagano , he is responsive, professional and accommodating. McGrath's made purchasing our first home seamless and I would highly recommend them.

I purchased the unit in 2000 and McGraths was the Real Estate Agent who sold it to me. Over the years McGrath managed the unit while it was rented out, McGraths helped me with the renovation works a few years ago and subsequently helped me move in, and now 21 years later, almost to the day, when the time came to sell it (sniff, sniff) McGrath has sold the unit for me! I wanted to send this email to thank all the team down at Glenelg for all you have done for me over the years and to express my appreciation for the professionalism and service provided to me, and always with a smile. I hope that I will have the occasion to request your assistance again sometime in the future.

Thanks to Glenn and the whole McGrath team for making the sale of our property easy and fast. Glenn sold our property within 2 weeks and helped with the little touches that make all the difference, while we were interstate. Great communication and suggestions to maximise value while balancing cost. Would not hesitate to use again. Thanks Glenn

My brother and I engaged the services of Paul to sell the family home in Glengowrie. From the first meeting Paul presented a thoughtful and professional plan to affect the sale of the property. He went through the procedures in a quiet yet confident manner answering our questions as we progressed. Communications were clear and precise throughout the marketing period till the sale was finalised resulting in happy buyers and vendors. I would recommend McGrath Real Estate Group, Glenelg and in particular Paul McGrath to anybody thinking of selling their property.

I bought my house from Paul and he was so professional and knew exactly what he was doing and explained everything that I needed to know about buying a new house.. I then used him as my agent to sell my home and he was prompt and very professional.. I highly recommend him if you are selling or buying property

We sold our house with Glenn Pagano last month and have nothing but amazing things to say. His communication and advice gave us first time sellers the certainty we needed, which led to an amazing result. Could not recommended Glenn enough.

The team at McGrath are warm and genuine- yet so totally professional and efficient. Our buying experience with Glenn Pagano has been a breeze - ever willing to assist and support. His genuine friendly nature, his solid work ethic and extensive knowledge and experience...highly recommended!!

Buying a first home was very confusing and daunting at first. Meeting Paul at an open inspection and then dealing with him throughout the offer/ buying the property was a relief. He was able to explain everything clearly and was very honest throughout the whole process. I thank Paul for his help and advice, including after hours when required. Paul and his team did a wonderful job even throughout the COVID-19 restrictions. Paul, thank you again.

They got the results we wanted, were engaging, honest and hard working. Our property was listed with another real estate company prior to swapping to McGrath and I was so disappointed it took so long to make that decision. Paul was always communicating about potential buyers, marketing ideas, what worked well and how it could be improved. I highly recommend this company and there staff. Thank you!

McGrath Real Estate are not a one man show, they have an absolute fantastic team all working together to get the job done. Each and every property manager is well organised and dedicated to their job. If you need a sale agent, Glenn Pagano and the team are the ones to go to! I highly recommend McGrath and the team!

He constantly kept us up to date on what was happening with our property throughout the whole sale process. Living interstate did not hinder this process whatsoever. I found him to be completely open and honest with the price guide and this was reflected in what the property went for. He was great in dealing with our tenants as well and went out of his way to also make the process a smooth one for them. I would highly recommend Paul if you were considering a real estate agent.

I recently engaged McGrath Real Estate to manage an investment property for me. Even in the best of circumstances, I think taking only 7 days to go from obtaining keys to the property from the previous owner to have tenants in place and pre-paying 3 months rent in advance is a very impressive effort, to do this in the midst of dealing with COVID-19 restrictions is an even more remarkable achievement. I was very impressed by the professionalism, knowledge and dedication of the staff I dealt with. I would happily deal with them in the future.

I have found Glenn to be professional in all areas after selling our house of 38 years in Fulham Gardens. His approach has been of a high standard even through any hiccups that may occur. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Glenn for buying or selling a house. He is professional, approachable and very down to earth. It has been a pleasure to deal with him.

Selling a property while overseas is very daunting, but Paul McGrath made everything go through so very smoothly. His excellent communication (and that of his valuable staff when he was not available) qualmed any nervousness we may have had with the whole process. At all times we knew what the situation was, and what our requirements were. He was able to successfully negotiate a sale price that satisfied us and the purchaser, and handled situations with existing tenants in the property on our behalf. We thoroughly recommend Paul and his staff. We will be selling again in July and will definitely be using Paul again.

After purchasing a property in the past, and looking for a new one for a while it was a breath of fresh air to deal with Glenn. He was knowledgeable about the area, the market and the house itself. He was always friendly, polite and prepared to answer questions and follow up things he didn't know. He even came in and opened up the property for us on Fathers Day between his own family breakfast and lunch. I would highly recommend dealing with Glenn and McGrath Real Estate. He helped us negotiate a good price and settlement time that both we and the vendor were happy with.

I have bought and sold many properties over the years and have had a mixture of experiences with Real Estate Agents, mostly from bad to worse. Glenn however was upfront, honest and most of all trustworthy. His strong personal principles thankfully spill over into his dealings as an Agent which made being an interstate landlord selling a property a more reliable experience than I have had previously. I would recommend Glenn to any vendor who, like me, has had trouble with the 'sales hype' of other Agents before.

I have had Paul McGrath Real Estate sell 2 properties now and have had great success with both, first one by auction. The second home which Paul just sold to a buyer who came to the first open could not have happened without Paul's support and help in getting the property ready for sale as I was overseas at the time. Paul and his team are highly professional at everything they do from start to finish. The communication from Paul and his team is always fantastic, even while I was overseas and in all the conversations with Paul he is up front, honest and supportive in what direction the sale process should go. I would highly recommend Paul and his team to anyone wanting to sell their home.

Paul has sold 3 houses for me over the years and his skills and professionalism cannot be questioned. His attention to detail is exemplary and I have always got the opinion that my well-being was in his main interest. Although a very busy person he was very well organised in meeting all his commitments relating to the sale. I had a bad experience with the sale of a previous property and lost faith in the real estate industry but the way Paul handled this sale has convinced me that there are at least some agents who genuinely care about their clients. I have every confidence in recommending Paul McGrath as a top agent who does his utmost to get the best outcome for a property seller.

Paul McGrath has assisted me with buying a small property in Plympton. He is a fabulous presenter and negotiator; no task is too complex or a bother for him: he solves every problem swiftly as it arises. He provided adequate and very sound advice about refurbishments that worked out cheaper for me than I had anticipated. After the sale, Paul came over to check up on things and successfully fixed a gas and security alarm issue. He provided help with tradespeople who turned out to be just as fast working as himself. I would recommend Paul McGrath to anyone who is looking for an honest, no nonsense and very kind broker/agent. He knows how to listen and makes you feel respected in your needs as he answers all your questions and provides useful suggestions for your associated needs with moving. It is the little "extra bit" you get when dealing with Paul McGrath: his peoples' skills are remarkable. He is there for you whenever you make contact. Thank you Paul!

Glenn was amazing through the whole process from viewing the property even after the settlement he called to follow up that I was happy and everything was working correctly. He kept me updated every step of the way. Nothing was to much trouble for him. He goes out of his way to assist you. I would recommend Glenn to anyone considering purchasing or selling.

Paul is a gentleman who made the selling experience seamless. His personable and affable nature gave me confidence in his ability to sell our house. I heard it in the first phone call I made. What has probably stood out most is his after sales service. His experience is vast and his negotiating skills are a major strength. He does well there because he has that rare ability to get his point across in a very convincing and respectful manner. He was transparent throughout the whole process and is someone I would recommend with great confidence. Thanks Paul.

Glenn recently sold my house. Through the whole process Glenn kept me up to date with the progression of the sale. He was a great communicator and very easy to deal with. If you are looking at selling your house I would highly recommend Glenn.

Glenn was friendly and helped a lot with the purchase, he went above and beyond and managed to fix a few small issues with the property before settlement date. His communication was also excellent during the settlement period, which made the whole process easy. I believe he dealt with the vendor and us the buyer very well and has kept up great communication. Thanks Glenn.

In June 2017 we sold out house and we used Paul McGrath from McGrath Real Estate as our agent. The house was sold in 11 days for a very good price. I am writing this reference to give credit where credit is due. Paul is no doubt a good real estate agent and skilled in his job, but I thought what clearly stood out about him were four things. 1. Paul proved to be a trustworthy man and I could believe what he was saying to me. Trustworthiness and integrity are far more important than sales skill. 2. Paul genuinely worked for our family to get the best result. 3. Paul kept us in touch with all developments and the communication didn't stop after the contract was signed. 4. You can't fake genuineness. All our dealings with McGraths were good and I would recommend them and use them again. Thank you Paul for your help.

When you choose McGrath Group as your property managers, you get a dedicated team that not only does what you expect them to but actually goes above and beyond by treating your property as their own investment.

Our team works harder, maintains clear communication with your tenants, and inspects your property thoroughly so they can advise on routine repairs and timely maintenance that could save you big dollars in the future.

Richard Branson said if you look after your staff, they’ll look after your customers, but at McGrath Real Estate, we believe we’ve gone further and deeper with this philosophy.

The real estate sector has a strong culture of “over work” and “burn out”, so we have put strong policies and procedures in place to overcome these entrenched habits. With these ingredients, we demonstrate how McGrath Real Estate truly walks the talk of encouraging work life balance among its team members, not just for our happy customers but for a thriving business.

If you’re selling real estate in Adelaide, then seeking selling advice from someone with a reputation as ‘the agent you can recommend’ sounds like a great course of action.

‘The agent you can recommend’, McGrath Real Estate, is at the heart of South Australian coastal property, and it is a reputation we hold with gratefully.

If I asked you how you would approach the challenge of pricing your home for sale, I would expect the first thing you’d ask yourself is, “How much can I get for it?”

Your next thought will most likely be a figure—based primarily on hope and a hunch—for which you’d be happy to sell. Unfortunately, hopes and hunches don’t work in a competitive real estate market.

Let’s look at how you can derive a realistic price for your home that will appeal to buyers in your local market and give you a good return for your asset.

McGrath Real Estate Group: Reviews

Fantastic experience: If I could give 100 stars for the excellent service I was given by Tania D'Antonio from McGrath Real Estate Group, I would, within a heartbeat. I met Tania back in March 2023 when I was looking for a rental property in Lightsview. If you do recall back in 2023, the rental crisis caused a lot of anxiety and panic but Tania welcomed everyone w/ her warm and lovely smile and she was so patient with me as I am very particular w/ what I like and dislike. Tania even went the extra mile by showing me another place in Semaphore. Unfortunately, I decided to go w/ a different real estate company as I prefer the property they offered which was perfect for a single dweller. Lo and behold, almost 1 year has passed and now the place I rented has been sold and the new owners are intending to occupy the property which brings me back to house hunting. Thankfully, I remembered how amazing Tania was last year and made contact w/ her. The process was seamless, from the house inspection to application to onboarding. Tania is so meticulous in every way and I truly appreciate it. She even thinks ahead for you and offers help w/o even asking! Can't really ask for more in a Property Manager! Mind you, I am a long-time renter so I have dealt w/ a lot of property managers and they have all been amazing but Tania, she takes the biggest chunk of the cake! Thanks again for all the help, Tania! I would highly recommend you to contact McGrath Real Estate so you can experience the professional service they provide.

Fantastic experience: Monique Hamilton has consistently demonstrated a remarkable level of professionalism, attentiveness, and support throughout our working relationship. Despite the geographical distance, her thoroughness and responsiveness have been invaluable to us as remote property owners. She has consistently gone above and beyond our expectations, making the management of our property seamless and worry-free.
