When choosing the perfect real estate agents there are several important factors and qualities to consider. Honesty and integrity, trust and reputation, knowledge of the neighborhood, competent and ethical service, superior and creative problem-solving abilities and sound real estate advice that can only come from years of experience are the qualities you’ll find in your representation with Kevin and Melissa of The Gilroy Group, a real estate team with a “hands-on” approach and straightforward style.

Kevin, the son of broker, G. William Gilroy, was born into real estate. He is Mar Vista’s Broker Associate under the umbrella of RE/MAX Estate Properties in their Los Angeles Westside office. Previously, Kevin was a broker associate with Berkshire Hathaway Home Services Santa Monica and held the position of office manager, managing the #1 team at Coldwell Banker Marina del Rey, selling luxury property on the sand.  He solely handled 50 clients, 20+ active listings and a dozen concurrent escrows on a daily basis.

Melissa is driven for success. She graduated Summa cum Laude from Bryant University, Smithfield, RI with a Bachelor of Science degree in Computer Information Systems. In 1989, she started selling residential real estate on the East Coast and became Realtor of the Year. Subsequently, she focused her efforts on land development projects and new residential sales and construction.  This was about the time when she acquired her love for décor and design and received awards and accolades in the furniture and design industry. Melissa knows how to turn a house into a home with the finishing touches that appeal to the market’s current buyers. She may not pull out her Louis Vuittons like she used to, but still keeps a focused eye on detail with a great admiration for elegance and taste.

Summary: Kevin & Melissa, THE GILROY GROUP Real Estate Team, personally handle every clients real estate transaction. “We personally represent our clientele, said Kevin Gilroy. Melissa and I actually do all the deals ourselves. We literally live our transactions from open to close, listing homes for sale, finding the right homes for our buyers and negotiate win-win deals. I think the extra value our clients find in us is from a two fold combination. First, from the +20 years of experience and knowledge we’ve acquired from real estate transactions and second, from the property management experience. We actually resolve landlord tenant legal issues on an daily basis. It’s a serious business keeping our clients out of litigation and we have! We manage seven buildings in Mar Vista and actually manage to keep everyone happy. Having said that, I think that’s why we’re in it! We like to make folks happy.”
