Rob McGarry is a Realtor and Licensed Broker with South Bay Brokers in Manhattan Beach. Rob lives in Hermosa Beach with his wife, Erin, and daughters, Kylie and Holly. Rob and Erin met and married at American Martyrs Church, and remain actively involved in the parish. Erin is a Pediatrician, caring for the infants, children and adolescents of the South Bay from her private practice in Torrance.

Rob has been a South Bay resident for most of his life. He was raised in South Redondo, where he attended St. James for elementary and junior high and Bishop Montgomery for high school. Rob continued his education just down the coast at the University of San Diego where he earned a Bachelor of Accountancy. He played just about every sport imaginable growing up, including basketball, soccer, golf, surfing, volleyball and tennis. Even with the busy schedule that comes with Real Estate, Rob still finds time to play tennis regularly and get out in the ocean on his stand up paddle board.

Having purchased his first home at 23, Rob always had an affinity for Real Estate. While he initially made the purchase for tax purposes and the chance to build some equity, he quickly found that there was much more to owning a home than just the financial benefits. The pride that comes with owning one's home is truly special. Rob also discovered that buying and selling a home is one of the most emotional processes a person can go through. Having the right person to guide you on that journey is invaluable. Rob knew then, and he knows now that he is that person.

Since joining the company in 2002, Rob quickly became one of the top agents at South Bay Brokers, and continues to enjoy much success thanks to referrals from family, friends and past clients. He is regularly recognized in the Beach Reporter as one of the company's top monthly producers, and has finished every year with South Bay Brokers near the top of its 130 brokers and agents.

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $625K in Northwest Torrance, Torrance, CA.

As a first time home buyer, Rob was so helpful and understanding to a novice going through the huge investment and decision of homeownership. A book can only provide so much and this is where a pro can be invaluable. Rob was that person who answered all my questions in a timely manner and provided keen insite and recommendations from beginning to the end.  More Less

Sold a Townhouse home in 2014 for approximately $500K in Hawthorne, CA.

Rob was recommended to me by a friend who had a great experience with him, and I am glad to have gotten to know him. Rob is such a professional. From his newsletters (which are very well researched and informative) to his integrity to his hard work and responsiveness, I certainly give him my highest recommendation. Specifically, he advised that I hold on to a rental property for an additional year, despite the fact that such a decision did not really benefit him - he was really looking out for my best interest. Like I said, he does a ton of research, and so this combination of knowledge about the market and his integrity make him a great person to trust when buying/selling a home.  More Less

Bought a Single Family home in 2009 in Hermosa Beach, CA.

Rob is the best in the South Bay and I have the house to prove it. I have a great place to live and I made an awesome investement.

I have worked with multiple Real Estate Professionals in the South Bay and elsewhere. Rob s the realtor I want on my side through a home purchase or home sale.

As for specifics,

Did he respond quickly to my needs?

Absolutely!!!

Was he an effective communicator?

This is Rob's true talent. He listens and transforms your words into the perfect house for your needs.

Did he make the process easier for me?

Absolutely!!

Was my market knowledge valuable?

Well, I've got the house to prove it. We got the best house in the best area for the best price. Can I ask for anything more?

In what ways did he go above and beyond to help you?

Rob has a skill to hear what you say and respond to your comments with productive home searches. I didn't waste my time looking at bad houses. We saw the houses that fit my interests and needs. Then, we worked through the buying process with ease.
