    "Kay recently collaborated with me to sell my home. She was fantastic. During the selling process, I was actually living across the country, so it was challenging for me to complete all of the activities needed to sell a home. She went above and beyond my expectations in supporting me through the process. Kay was extremely proactive in obtaining contractors to clean, stage and complete fixes in the house. She was extremely knowledgeable about every step of the process. I am truly thankful that I was able to work with her."

    Kay is a total go-getter and was a pleasure to work with throughout our home purchase. She quickly understood what we wanted (before we understood) and aggressively pursued opportunities that would be desirable for us. Ultimately Kay's persistence brought us a completely off-market opportunity,  which was a one of a kind home that we closed on. Couldn't recommend working with Kay more, she's on the ball!

    We recently settled on our Passyunk Square investment property and couldn't be happier. We were new to the Philadelphia housing market.  Kay McGrath helped us find the perfect place - location, size, cost, etc.  She was patient, responsive and detailed oriented.  She listened to our needs, and   made appropriate suggestions and recommendations.  Kay  used her in-depth knowledge of the city real estate landscape to help us explore each of the unique neighborhoods around center city before we ultimately zeroed in on the Passyunk area.  When we finally selected a property, it required quite a bit of negotiation and Kay was there every step of the way guiding us through the process.  If you're looking for a real estate professional in Philadelphia - Kay McGrath would be our recommended choice!

    Kay was amazing to work with. Always was attentive to what I was looking for and took many hours out of her weekends to accommodate the house search. She was also amazing at facilitating the deal and helping us get to closing. She answered all my questions and was a great resource throughout the whole process. She is highly recommended in my book!

    I was a first time home buyer and Kay was the perfect agent to help me during the process! She was very knowledge on the area I was looking to purchase and would send me homes she thought I would be interested in as soon as they hit the market. Kay stuck to my budget when sending me properties. Kay was very easy to connect and was always available any date or time I needed her assistance. She was also very prompt in setting up showings and appointments and worked around my schedule. Once I found my home Kay was able to negotiate with the sellers to make sure I was getting my home at the best price possible. She took care of all documents and explained everything to me before proceeding. I highly recommend Kay!
