Testimonials: What Our Clients Have to Say about us

"I have been doing business with McGrath for over ten years.  I chose them originally because of their reputation and my personal impressions after meeting with Jim McGrath.  McGrath has handled rentals, sales, and purchases for me and my daughter, as well as facilitating a 1031 exchange for my son-in-law and daughter. So, I have significant experience with them - all good".                           ~Bill Jamieson, FSO Owner

"We purchased our Northern Virginia home in 1995 with the assistance of Jim McGrath. When we returned overseas in 2002, we asked Jim to manage the property. They have kept tenants in our house, spearheaded repairs, handled preventative maintenance issues and ensured our interests were well represented. Jim has a fine staff of people and they are very responsive to any issue that develops!"  ~Tom & Andrea Grayson, FSO Owner

 "We believe you have an excellent resource locally through John Bennett, who you will find to be responsive, knowledgeable, resourceful, creative, capable, professional and personable."                  ~Toni Dash, Owner
"I can not begin to explain to you how impressed I was and continue to be with the dedication and professionalism of the McGrath firm. I am more satisfied with McGrath's performance than I could ever expect. To be completely honest with you, I do not think that I would have been able to manage my property from my overseas post, without McGrath's assistance."                           ~Suzanne Neves, FSO Owner

"Thanks so much for helping make my clients move to your condo a pleasurable one. I visited them and they had nothing but compliments for McGrath Services."     
~ Randy Huntley, Realtor of current tenants

"Thanks for this. The usual great service and thoughtful, value-added analysis that makes being an owner easy and reminds me (again) why I am lucky to have had McGrath looking after my house for the last 6+ years."    ~Ben Moeling, FSO Owner

"I really like how McGrath handles my properties, they are very good at finding and screening tenants-probably the most important thing a landlord needs to do. They also keep the property value up by doing required maintenance in a timely fashion."..."Many other PM companies defer maintenance and end up costing the owner big money. McGrath also keeps an extensive list of highly qualified and reasonably priced service companies; from floors, to pluming, and roofs. They know who to call and their volume of business allows them to negotiate good prices on these services." ~Jake Bittner, Owner

"I want to express my appreciation for the job McGrath Real Estate Services, and in particular Mr. Waters, have done in managing the property for me over the last three years. I can recommend McGrath, without reservation, to anyone."   ~James Roth, Owner

"Once again, thank you for taking care of our property and all the best to you and the other team members at McGrath, who have always been very helpful and understanding. It certainly makes my life easier, 12,000 miles away, to have responsible people like yourselves, taking care of my property for me. I appreciate it and thank you."             ~James & Parveen Cole, FSO Owner

"As one of your 'oldest' customers, we certainly can vouch for your ability to be responsive to all types of needs---from finding tenants to making repairs."                 
            ~Ronna & Nuel Pazdral, FSO Owner

"Any company can handle the day to day challenges of property management. It is during unforeseen and difficult times that the measure of a company is revealed. You and McGrath Real Estate Services have demonstrated your professionalism, foresight, and consistent good judgment during this incident. You and McGrath give us a peace of mind while we are serving abroad, and in so doing set yourselves apart.                            ~Michael D. Grose, FSO Owner
