Sanjay - Buyer

Simon was patient with explaining things to first time buyers that he had no doubt explained a thousand times already and he was always prompt with communications. One of the pluses was his support staff were also really nice and always responded to any queries politely and quickly.

Ric - Buyer

Couldn't have been happier with the process and outcome of the sale of our house through Abel McGrath. We felt fully informed and connected throughout the marketing campaign, we felt that potential buyers were thoroughly followed up to extract the most potential for a sale as possible and auction day was handled extremely professionally. Thank you to Simon, John, Deb and Alice for being our "dream team"!

Darren & Kate - Vendors

We came across Simon 4 years ago when buying a house through another agent he was very proactive at chasing interested parties. So when selling 2 Batnfield Road he seemed like a good choice. The partnership with John Hunter works very well you can always get one of them on the phone. John even answered texts at 10.30pm. John had a very good understanding of the potential buyers. The girls in the office were great and very proactive. The weekly reports were good haven't had that before when selling. Very positive experience glad we stuck to our guns on reserve price at auction.

Ann - Vendor

The whole team were a pleasure to work with, the after sales service was especially professional.

Jodi - Vendor

My wife and I have recently purchased and sold though Simon and his team, John, Alice and Jess. Circumstances around the sale and purchase were not ideal as it was an unplanned move and just as we were about to start the Auction sales process on our Mt Claremont home we were off on a 2 month overseas holiday. Despite the circumstance Simon and the team did a fantastic job in uncertain market conditions and achieve a great result with our house selling and settling in a little over 8 weeks providing us much needed comfort to move forward with the purchase of our new home in Swanbourne. The purchase of the new home was equally as smooth with settlement taking place on time and without issue. Thanks to Simon and team Mcgrath!

James - Vendor

I rarely if ever rate anything or anyone as five stars, but I have no alternative in the case of Simon McGrath and his real estate team. The most impressive part of the entire selling process was that they did what they said they'd do and they did it professionally, on time and to a high standard. At all times they were friendly and efficient. When a major problem arose, they dealt with it calmly and effectively. Simon McGrath was the agent through whom we bought the house in 2001 and who sold our house in 2015. If he and his team (special thanks to John Hunter and Alice Newson) are not around next time we're ready to sell, I don't know what we'll do.

Dan - Vendor

The McGrath team worked like a well oiled machine to sell my home after a 4 week marketing campaign. I was advised on the best marketing strategy and house presentation, and kept me informed of developments throughout. The procedures employed ensured that everything ran smoothly. The McGrath team extracted maximum interest in the timeframe to ensure there was a competitive sales process. Thanks for your the professional job well done!

Colin - Vendor

Simon and his team were professional, diligent and tenacious throughout the process - from initial conversation right through to settlement. Communication was consistently excellent. Very happy with the final sale outcome in a tough market. Highly recommend.

Ben - Vendor

Dealing with Simon and his offsider John and admin staff Alice was a very simple process. They answered all our questions in a timely manner and helped us negotiate a settlement date that fitted well for both parties.

Scott - Buyer

The Simon, John and Alice team put together an excellent appraisal and marketing proposal and clearly explained their reasons for the recommended sale strategy. The vendor reports captured the changing market sentiment, and although we did not get what the initial market suggested we are confident we received a good sale price from all of their diligent work. We reviewed multiple agencies and are more than happy with our Abel McGrath choice for courtesy, diligence and hard work in getting our place sold. 

Peter & Jane - Vendors

We were very happy with Simon McGrath as our selling agent. Simon and John are very knowledgeable, realistic, efficient and above all diplomatic. Every communication we had with them was dealt with promptly and politely.The other staff members Alice, Jess and Donna were also extremely helpful. All of this reduced our anxiety levels because selling your home is naturally a hard thing to do. It is emotionally challenging and having a supportive sales team makes all the difference. 

Di - Vendor

I have been happy with the service I have received from Simon and John and the office staff. ...... all very kind and helpful and questions answered. Thank you.

Mary - Buyer

We had an excellent experience dealing with Simon and his team. He has great local knowledge and demonstrated a high level of professionalism. He sold our property even before it went on the market. I have no hesitation in recommending him.

Penny - Vendor
