Our Story

OUR VALUES

Integrity

We see integrity as the greatest differentiator in the real estate industry and a defining quality of our business. Integrity and trust are key to growth for an individual, a business and a brand. It’s our commitment to this value that stands us apart and is the cornerstone of our business.

Entrepreneurial

From the opening of our business in 1988 we have been passionate about transforming the real estate industry, providing exceptional service and delivering outstanding results for our clients. But our greatest passion is our people, they are our greatest asset and the most important ingredient for our future success.

Quality

Having produced more top sales performers than any other brand, having 20% of REB's top 100 agents and nearly double that for top female agents* and consistently outperforming our competitors on overall vendor experience, we can honestly say our brand is synonymous with quality. But we aren’t stopping there, our goal is to provide an unparalleled real estate experience and to do that we need the best team.

Simplicity

Simplifying the real estate process for our clients and network is a priority for us. Enabling business and technology solutions to help our network reduce costs, eliminate inefficiency and increase effectiveness ensures our network is able to deliver better results for our clients and better results for themselves…. it’s as simple as that.

Community

Collaboration and community define our culture. Sharing insights, know-how and expertise are an everyday occurrence. In fact, it’s this culture that attracts and retains our people. This community focused culture extends beyond our network and into our local neighbourhoods. With over $1M* donated to community groups, we can honestly say community is a key strength of the McGrath brand.

THE McGRATH DIFFERENCE

McGrath’s multi-award-winning franchise group is built on the foundation of relationships, trust and performance. By offering our business owners the biggest territories in the industry, we’re providing our people with the strongest platform for growth. Combined with our industry leading systems and our commitment to drive efficiency through innovation and technology, we are the ultimate partner to build a successful and profitable real estate business.

01. Regional Approach to BDA’s

Our exclusive Business Development Areas (BDA’s) are the largest in the industry. Why? Because we don’t want our business owners to compete against another McGrath office in the same area. We’d rather see our business owners thrive and where possible expand into complimentary BDA’s rather than stacking multiple offices into the same region. This is a revolutionary approach in our industry and demonstrates our commitment to our business owner’s success.

02. Leadership

Strong leadership has guided McGrath from a small office in Paddington to a network of 98 offices Australia wide. John McGrath’s vision to change the way real estate was conducted – to bring integrity and transparency into the process and develop a system, now called the McGrath Sales System, is the foundation of our success. We are one of the fastest growing real estate company’s in Australia, we’ve delivered more top performing agents and business owners than any other real estate brand in Australia…and we’re just getting started.

03. Innovation

McGrath is synonymous with innovation; it has underpinned our success and is at the heart of our business growth strategy. Our advanced technology platform is focused on supporting agent productivity and effectiveness along with driving leads through to our offices. Combined with our game changing Learning Management System we are continually working to ensure our business owners and agents are positioned for even greater success.

04. Training

All Business Owners have access to one on one coaching and mentoring from leading industry experts through to our Founder John McGrath. These customised sessions are designed to help you achieve greater results in your business and our accountability sessions keep you on track. We also understand the pressures of retention within an office and have created a revolutionary training program that blends classroom training with customised eLearning, so all team members, no matter what their role in your business, can extend their career and life skills. Happy teams = better retention.

05. Career Progression

Our strategy to support our high performing business owners by helping them expand and grow into complimentary BDA’s is not only unique in the industry, it’s pivotal to our success. We are strong supporters of growth from within and our mentoring and one on one coaching programs are designed to enable each of our business owners to excel. We are one team committed to helping you achieve your goals.

06. Head Office Support

Enjoy the independence of small business ownership with the benefits of a big business network behind you. Plug into our network of proven technology systems, leverage our in-house and online training programs, tap into your dedicated marketing support, business coaches and senior management mentors. Your team at Head Office are your resource for ongoing guidance and support.

The people
"We have access to world class training and coaching, to the best systems and prestige marketing."
Joining McGrath was a simple choice…….when my husband and I were looking at moving into the real estate industry we only wanted to work for the best – and that is McGrath.  John built a business focussed on delivering 6 star service to clients, bringing passion and innovation to the industry and always supporting his team.  The commitment to delivering the best across every aspect of the business meant McGrath was always the only choice. 

I love that the brand comes together to learn and share and support each other from across the country.  This hasn’t changed as we have grown over the last 15 years. There is always someone to call to deliver the best client solution, including John himself. We have access to world class training and coaching, access to the best systems and prestige marketing.  But the best part of McGrath is the people – they are real, they are passionate, they work hard but have fun and support each other and make this company the best place to work.

"Fantastic support network of administration superstars and the personal and professional development to ensure each team member shines."
Before joining the McGrath network, I had never dreamed of working in real estate. I had the privilege of being able to co-ordinate John McGrath as a guest speaker within in a previous role. I was immediately captivated by John’s passion, commitment, drive and ongoing commitment to transform the industry and the general public’s perception of it. I had multiple meetings with McGrath Caloundra Co-Principals David & Jodie Hedley-Ward & their sincerity in matching John’s values and morals really made my decision an easy one.

Upon joining the McGrath family (it truly does feel like that) I was really impressed by the fountain of knowledge available at my fingertips & loved being able to contact a successful agent, or team member, throughout the network for advice and support. McGrath provides its team members with a wealth of knowledge, a fantastic support network of administration superstars and the personal and professional development to ensure each team member shines.
