About Us


McVay Real Estate is Australia's leading boutique commercial real estate agency that focuses purely on the sale of major assets. This includes, Retail, Office, Hospitality and Industrial properties.

MRE doesn't offer property valuation, leasing, management or consultancy services, thereby removing all conflicts of interest and distractions. This specialised approach enables us to focus on securing the best possible result for our clients.

Our highly regarded team pulls from a diverse experience pool including development, construction, capital markets and agency leading to an unparalleled asset level understanding and ability to create genuine value to the sales process. When coupled with our real access to offshore capital and active investors and a proven track record for closing, MRE provides the formula to maximise outcome in every instance. We welcome the opportunity to discuss this new approach to Australian agency.



Unlike typical agencies, all of MRE's sales team has a direct ownership in the firm. This removes the internal competition for the next commission cheque, instead, it promotes a collaborative and unified approach through the sharing of information, contacts and experience.
