Becky grew up in Chapel Hill, North Carolina, and graduated from Guilford College in Greensboro with a B.A. in Political Science. After graduation, Becky and her boyfriend, Scott, whom she married a few years later, fell in love with Charlotte while visiting a relative and decided to make it their home. Becky earned a teaching certificate at Queens College and spent the next five years teaching in the Charlotte Mecklenburg School system. Throughout this time, she and Scott purchased and renovated several homes and in 1997, she decided to turn her passion into a career. Becky dove head first into the world of residential real estate and was honored with the Rookie of the Year Award in her first year and been a consistent top producer ever since.
She knows that buying and selling can be stressful and her clients appreciate her expertise because she has helped navigate hundreds of buyers and sellers through the process over the past 20 years. She feels very lucky to have found something she loves to do and truly believes in the old saying, ‘If you find something you love to do then you’ll never work a day in your life.’
Becky and Scott, live in the SouthPark area in Barclay Downs with their three children (ranging from 12 to 22 years old) and rescue dog, Lilly. She is active in the community and is currently president of the Barclay Downs HOA. Becky has also volunteered her time to several PTA boards over the years and enjoys playing tennis, running, writing and using her creativity with interior design.
In 5 years Becky has helped me sell two rental properties and two primary residences. The rentals were previously listed with another realtor and did not sell at the time, one had multiple offers and when the first fell through Becky had a backup ready to go at full asking price. One of the primaries was a townhome – thought I was ready to downsize as an empty nester, turns out I wasn’t and Becky helped me buy and sell that one within 6 months. She has also helped me purchase 3 homes – one for my college grad and her roommates, we had very specific requirements and budget; and the home I am in currently which received multiple offers the first day but with Becky’s guidance mine was the only one considered!
I can say with confidence that whether buying or selling, your price range, the state of the market, condition of your home or the very particular requirements you have for the home you are looking for Becky has the experience, resources and ability to help you get it done. Becky’s assistant Cyndi is fantastic and works through all those details that can seem overwhelming. Becky has a long list of partners (paint, carpet, handyman, exterminator – I have used several) who will prioritize your needs and get you on the schedule ahead of others. Through 7 transactions we have experienced it all – difficult buyers, a burst pipe 2 days before going on the market, a house that did not appraise, a sellers agent who had no experience and so much more. Regardless of the situation or how I reacted Becky was completely unflappable and got us through it – an essential quality in a realtor and one I have truly appreciated. Sincere thanks to Becky and Cyndi – look forward to working with you again in the future!
I have worked with many real estate agents, but Becky McGrath was the best - hands down. She listened very closely to what we wanted and needed. She offered impartial advice and helped us with through the pros and cons of each house we looked at. She was diligent, protective, and always had our interests at the top of her list. She went to bat for us when it was needed. As we were working from out of state, communication was imperative. She was always available. Always. I give her the highest recommendation. You will be very pleased if you choose to work with her.
Becky went above and beyond for me. She was not only an invaluable resource through a long and difficult sale but I have never known a realtor to stage with her own furniture and take my dog out. Becky is caring, honest, sincere and dedicated. It’s not just about the commission for her. Even though the sale/purchase is complete I can still reach out and she’s here for me. I would recommend her to anyone.Ginna B
When my husband and I began the search for our first home we felt overwhelmed. Becky not only listened to our home "wish list" and worked tirelessly, often nights and weekends, to find great listings for us, she remained calm and collected throughout the stressful home buying process. Becky exceeded our expectations and made our first-time home buying experience exciting and enjoyable. You can choose many different realtors in Charlotte, but if you are looking for someone who listens, is hardworking, advocates for you as the Buyer, knows the neighborhoods of Charlotte, and remains extremely unruffled in the process, you want to hire Becky. We will use Becky again in the future and I would highly recommend her to my friends and to my family.Ashley F
Recently had two home transactions using Becky McGrath. They were quick - went smooth and closed with no issues. Becky was wonderful , professional, knowledgeable, responsive to questions an needs, but most of all very kind. She is a jewel to the industry and recommend her to anyone thinking of buying or selling. Thank you for making my dream come true!Nancy L
We worked with Becky to buy and sell our houses just last year. We had lived in the house we were selling for 20 plus years, so the decision to move became more emotional than we expected. Becky provided an exceptional balance of professional guidance and thoughtful support, recognizing that the sale was not just a transaction for us. The great news is that she found our dream house. Her industry knowledge and attention to the details of the process made what could have been a nightmare for us a real success instead.Jennifer B
Becky is highly recommended for her precise market analysis of our house and her resourcefulness and creativity in resolving unexpected issues during negotiations with buyer promptly. She is professional and focused and gets results, and our house was sold quickly, making our relocation to Dallas a clean and simple transition!Wei C. and S
