At McGrath Real Estate Services, Inc. we have two integral parts of our business: property management and sales services. Our Leasing and Sales Associates bridge the gap between these two aspects of real estate to our clients’ advantage. At McGrath Real Estate, we have found that having hands-on experience and expertise in both property management and sales allows our agents to be the best in the Northern Virginia area. Understanding the impact of the rental market on the sales market and vice verse allows our agents to constantly improve their knowledge of the real estate market, have constant transactional experience, and focus their attention on our clients rather than marketing ourselves as Realtors to the public. We work on all sides of real estate with homeowners, investors, first-time home buyers, and renters. All members of our leasing and sales team are licensed Realtors and members of the National, Virginia and Northern Virginia Associations of Realtors. With over 100 combined years working the Northern Virginia real estate market, our realtors offer the highest value to anyone looking for real estate services.
