Christian and Katherine of Mount Claremont - Vendor
We have bought and sold through Simon McGrath three times. For us trust is very important. We wouldn’t go to anyone else. Simon is always available and we feel he will always give us honest advice and go the extra mile. We could not recommend Simon, his colleague John and the Abel McGrath team more highly. We are second generation McGraths! Our folks also exclusively trust Simon with their Real Estate transactions. Now that is saying something!

April of Mount Claremont - Purchaser
Simon is wonderful to work with. He made purchasing my first home a pleasant and comfortable experience. I highly recommend Simon McGrath and the Abel McGrath Property Group.

Diana of Mount Lawley - Vendor
Simon and the team did a great job applying some creative marketing tactics to selling our apartment. I was a little sceptical at first, but decided to put my trust in the experts, and it absolutely worked. Very pleased with the results and enjoyed the process.

Very pleased with the personal and professional service Team McGrath provided selling our Swanbourne property.

James - Vendor

We definitely chose the right agent in Simon McGrath. The impressive research done by Simon and his colleague, John Hunter together with their broad experience, knowledge and skills gave us confidence to make decisions through each stage of the selling process. They achieved an excellent result, presenting multiple offers in the first week. We were very happy with the efficiency and communication from Simon and his team and have no hesitation in recommending them to both buyers and sellers.

Louise - Vendor

After two successful house sales (2008 and 2015) I continue to be impressed with Simon's frankness and integrity in pitching a house for the market. He has a thorough knowledge of the area, and his commitment of time and effort knows no bounds. I also observe that he is gifted in liaising with both the vendor and the buyer. Trust is a very important factor in engaging a real estate agent, and Simon has justified that twice for us. The fact that we returned to him for a second time is a testament to that trust.

Katherine - Vendor

Professional and timely service and feedback. The entire team works extremely efficiently.

Kim - Vendor

Simon and his team provided a professional and supportive service in relation to all aspects of the house sale. Feedback was given immediately after home opens, and regular information on progress was provided. Any queries or concerns were addressed in a timely manner.

Simon is a professional, diligent and committed Agent. He has a very pleasant personality and goes the extra mile.
May - Buyer

The combination of Simon and John working on the sale of our property was excellent in what is becoming to be, a very difficult market. One of the key factors I believe is the continual feedback during the progress of the sale. Well done Simon and John.

Tom - Buyer

Simon has excellent communication skills and personality to reach his goal.

Rab - Vendor

The sales experience of our Claremont property exceeded expectations. Simon McGrath, brilliantly assisted by his professional and competent team at Abel McGrath Property Group, seamlessly navigated the entire sales process in our absence. From campaign concept through to delivery we were impressed with the detailed analysis, market insights and expert guidance provided. Furthermore we were particularly impressed with the sensitivity and courtesy afforded our tenant. Simon and his team achieved a very satisfactory outcome with our property and we thoroughly endorse his expertise.

Dawn - Vendor

Great team work from team McGrath.

Kathryn - Buyer

Simon auctioned the house we bought. We negotiated with John to purchase the house.

Alexei - Buyer

Overall very pleased with the process.

Steve - Vendor

Excellent service. Everyone in the team is very professional.

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

Very satisfied with the outcome in a difficult market.

Stephen - 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

We were very impressed with Simon McGrath's professionalism when selling my Mother's unit in Nedlands last November. He knew the Claremont area very well and actually sold a home to our daughter in Mt. Claremont beforehand as well, with the same expertise. Mum's unit was sold in 2 weeks , which we thought was amazing, knowing the real estate market is a bit quiet at the moment. I would recommend Simon to anyone wanting to buy a property in the Mt. Claremont/Nedlands area.

Marilyn - Vendor

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.
