The Franchise Council of Australia’s (FCA) national community service award has been won by a Sydney-based McGrath Estate Agents' office.

McGrath Neutral Bay/Mosman/Northbridge, which is headed by principal Dean Mackie, won the FCA’s award after securing the NSW gong in July.

“Through this award, we hope that we might also inspire others to something for their community and as a result, make a difference in other people’s lives,” Mr Mackie said.

Mr Mackie said that his agency has been involved with or supported at least 14 community groups during the last 12 months. This included Cruise for a Cure, Make a Wish Foundation, Middle Harbour Public School, Beat the Blues Concert for the Black Dog Institute, the Australian Cancer Council and the McGrath Foundation.

He said community groups were selected on the basis of certain parameters. “It is not just making a difference to the foundations, charities and the communities that benefit from our involvement, but to also make a difference with our team.

“I am committed to providing opportunities to our team to challenge themselves and support them in our own community activities.

“To this end, our team is given an additional two-paid annual leave days per year to volunteer with a charity of their choice.”

John McGrath, CEO of McGrath Estate Agents said: “This McGrath franchise was the only real estate finalist in these awards and was judged alongside all franchise brands in Australia.

“I am particularly proud as this demonstrates great leadership within our franchise network as well as acknowledgement of their spirit of making a difference in their community.”
