In 1982 as a single mother of a 12 and 13 year old, Sally wanted to better her and her children’s lives so she went back to school, while holding down 2 other jobs and achieved her Real Estate license at a time when most people were getting out of the real estate business.
With only 2 years in the business behind her, Sally obtained her Broker's license which enabled her to open Sally McGarr Realty Corp.,Brokerage in 1988...a rarity for a single woman in the 80's.
Early in her career Sally was known as the Condo Queen and somehow knew that this type of home ownership would get a strong hold in Niagara. In a short time Sally was converting rental properties to condominiums and at the same time heading up many new developments in Niagara.
In 1991, while pregnant with her third child, Sally moved her company to a very high profile location at 5 St Paul Crescent in the heart of St Catharines. Although pregnant, Sally was still putting buyers and sellers together up to eight hours before her beautiful baby daughter was born.
In 2005, McGarr Realty opened at 1615 Niagara Stone Road, Niagara on the Lake in order to better service this community.
Throughout the last 34 years, Sally has maintained a strong community involvement while quietly being philanthropic for the causes that she holds close to her heart.
Sally's continued participation in new development keeps McGarr Realty in the forefront with developers and builders throughout the region. An extensive database makes it easy to connect the right buyers and sellers. With international connections, McGarr properties are marketed worldwide...they are Local and they are Global.
Today, Sally is known and respected as the founder of McGarr Realty, the largest and most successful independent non-franchise Brokerage in its market place.
Still very active in all aspects of real estate, Sally continues to keep her clients' needs and wants of upmost importance. When you want something done she will be there to guide you, whether personally or through her highly skilled group of Realtors at McGarr Realty Corp., Brokerage.
