To Whom It May Concern: My elderly in-laws needed to sell their condo in Clearwater, FL. In January of this year, I did some internet research for realtors, and made a cold call to Gavin McGrath, with your agency, asking him how a sale of property long distance would take place.He answered my specific questions very thoroughly , and nothing more was done at that time. I was impressed with his taking so much time for explanation, without even a promise of future business.In late March of this year, my husband & I came to FL to start the process of selling this condo for my in-laws, which is when we contacted Gavin, who remembered our call and we finally met him. He was so far superior in all ways (over the other woman with whom we interviewed, who boldly claimed her superiority of knowledge of TOTW, even condemning any other agents abilities in that regard). Gavin has a confident & knowledgeable demeanor and a truly personable but professional manner. After hiring Gavin as our agent, many, many troublesome problems had to be handled, and single-handedly by Gavin, as my husband and I returned home early April. A mold issue and a water leakage problem caused many months of concern - construction had to happen, with a company that Gavin had to find. Materials had to be selected, again by Gavin in our absence. Furniture had to be removed, a very involved and lengthy process, where Gavin personally and physically moved some items and arranging for pick up by others. A thorough housecleaning of the unit had to be done, which some Gavin physically did himself, and then he found us a cleaning crew. And an air quality test had to be done, which again, Gavin had to direct. All of these processes entailed coordination and Gavin’s physical presence to let these workers in.Lastly, but most importantly, due to the buyers’ agents ineptness, and making a burdensome and annoying mistake on the contract, our buyers almost walked away from the deal with only three days before closing. The buyers wanted the furniture (which Gavin spent hours and hours removing) but the buyer's agent specifically stated that the furnishings were “not applicable”! Gavin had to make some late night frantic emails & phone calls to all involved, and negotiated an acceptable solution to all parties, thereby allowing the settlement to go as planned.The process was grueling and trying, but Gavin never lost his cool or his dedication to this process. The commission on this sale had to be one of his smallest, but he never wavered from his responsibility to us. We are forever in his debt, and my infirm in-laws are so grateful that we found this wonderful agent. You should be very pleased to have such a professional person on your team. He will be highly recommended by us for all to see. Sincerely,Ray & Patti Neumannfor Fred Neumann & Alice Walters2231 Utopian Dr., E

I have worked on several transactions with Gavin and have found him to be very knowledgeable about Clearwater real estate. He is honest and direct and easy to work with. He really puts his clients needs before his own, recently canceling a local appointment to drive 4 hours to discuss an offer in person with his client. Dedication like that is rare.
Our experience with Gavin as our realtor was outstanding. He is quick to respond to questions. We did not know the area as we had just moved here to Clearwater. Within a week we not only found the home of our dreams but the closing was quick, easy and we closed in 30 days. We could not be happier. We would recommend Gavin to anyone.
Gavin is with out a doubt, they best realtor in Florida. Meaning he has the BEST negotiation skills to get your the BEST price possible, his knowledge of the area and Cleawater Beach set him apart from any other realtor on the Beach / Clearwater and he is very easy and fun to work with.
Gavin has proved to be an outstanding Realtor. I have worked with him for several years and he has never failed to get me a good price on a property with his negotiating skills. I recommend Gavin as a go to agent!
