Our agents are still contactable

Even though our local offices along with corporate support office are working remotely, our agents are still working and our offices have staff members practicing social distancing.


We remain easily contactable via phone, email and social media or video conferencing. We would love to hear from you and answer any questions you may have about one our properties, the local real estate market, your own home or any property related advice you may be seeking during this period.



You can still search, find and inspect properties online

Your search for a new place to call home, or perhaps your bucket list idea for a complete sea change doesn’t need to stop because of government restrictions. Our website remains your go to resource for all our latest listings and rental properties. 


Many of our properties feature virtual tours, and all our properties are captured with high quality professional photographs and floor plans - you can easily inspect properties for sale from the comfort of your own home.


Furthermore, our website houses the new McGrath Insights Centre - your go-to-resource for information rich, practical real estate content. From thought leadership articles, in-depth guides, checklists, McGrath Report 2020 and our popular McGrath Magazine, our insights centre can provide you with relevant and up-to-date information.


Over the coming weeks we will continue to keep this full of practical insights from John McGrath and our wider network of industry leaders, about what is happening in the property market and how it impacts you. To help pass the time while at home, we’ll also be sharing practical tips for homeowners, investors, buyers and renters, to help ensure you are in a strong position post these current restrictions.
