Meet the Team


For more than 35 years, McGrath Real Estate Services, Inc. has been run by the McGrath family. First, by Peg and Ed McGrath, Foreign Service Officers who understood the unique challenges of managing a property while overseas. Now our property management company is run by their sons, Timothy and James McGrath. Tim and Jim have continued to promote a family attitude, while continuously looking for new ways to innovate, whether through technology or bringing in new people with fresh ideas on property management. The true backbone of our organization, Tim and Jim provide guidance, support and friendship to everyone in the McGrath Real Estate family.

Client Advocates

The client’s main point of contact during the property management experience will be our Client Advocates. They review and respond to all communications to and from McGrath Real Estate clients to ensure that they receive prompt and accurate answers to their questions. Our Client Advocates also direct the departments to address client need.  Email our Client Advocates at


The Leasing team is the initial point of contact for our clients as we begin the property management cycle. They will provide Northern Virginia real estate market data for effective pricing, suggest marketing strategy and advertising exposure, and communicate expectations. They will also negotiate leases and handle leasing renewals. Email the Leasing Department at


The Repairs Department receives and coordinates repair and maintenance requests between contractors, tenants and owners. All maintenance concerns are outsourced with independent contractors. The repairs department is dedicated to leveraging their experience into value for our clients and tenants with maintenance concerns. Email the Repairs Department at


The single most important part of the management of your home is the organization of your money. The McGrath Real Estate Accounting Department, while often in the background, constantly works on your behalf to ensure you receive your rent and that you are prepared to file your tax return at the end of the year. Email the accounting department at


Our Inspections Department conducts move-in and move-out walk-throughs, interim and annual walk-throughs. They identify and record security deposit issues and concerns. They are the eyes and ears of our property management team. Our inspection crew is made up of one full-time property inspector (internal staff) and an independent third party inspection crew. During a walk-through the inspector notes the condition of the property, reviews tenant lease compliance and takes photos. When applicable, we try to incorporate video walk-through documentation for a more detailed look at certain property aspects. Email the Inspections Department at


The backbone of our operations is successful facilitation of all the processes of property management, and that means smart, hardworking administrative support to all our core functions!


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. Meet Our Sales Team!
