The McGrew Difference


Over a Half Century of Service

McGrew Real Estate is a combination of Lawrence, KS real estate firms that stretch back to the 1930’s. McGrew Real Estate itself dates back to 1951 and today includes the former Lawrence Realty Associates (which was also formerly known as Calvin, Eddy & Kappelman Real Estate), and the Gill Agency. McGrew has seen Lawrence mature from the once sleepy college town to the vibrant community we have today. Throughout the previous eight decades we have established our company as the leader in real estate for Lawrence and all of Northeast Kansas.

Locally Owned / Independent Company

McGrew is one of the few remaining major real estate firms in Kansas that is both locally owned and independent (not part of a national franchise). Decisions are made locally and quickly.

A Highly Trained Staff

The McGrew Real Estate sales team leads the way in knowledge. In addition to the national and state classes (where they earn GRI, E-Pro, ABR, CRS, and other designations) our agents attend in-house classes on topics that not only include contracts and Home Staging, but can range from Lawrence history to Feng Shui.

The True Team Spirit

When we hire agents at McGrew, we look first for integrity and intelligence. But right behind that we select “team” players; agents who will work together to benefit all of our clients. While we are the biggest, but we also work as a group better than anyone. We play better, too.

Increased Odds of Closing and Closings on Time

Recent reports show that over 90% of our customers’ transactions closed and closed on time. The industry average is around 50%.


McGrew offers personalized relocation services. Additionally, McGrew is the only Lawrence based firm that belongs to The Leading Real Estate Companies of the World, the nation’s largest referral network. This is another place where bigger is better.


At McGrew Real Estate we believe that firsthand knowledge of our local schools is important – so we visited them – every single one. We toured each of the facilities and met with the principals, teachers and students. We even ate the lunches! We don’t just claim to know more about Lawrence’s public and private schools, we put our time into it.

Technologically Advanced

We are not afraid of the future in real estate; we embrace it. Our agents carry cell phones, laptops and PDA’s. They are wired to the web through a fast T-1 connection. We welcome the opportunities of the future.

First Rate Support

Sales people are best at selling. At McGrew, we back them with an outstanding staff. This support team handles the details from list­ing to contract, closing and beyond. They are part of your team and available to assist you every step of the way.

Our Offices

Our home speaks volumes on how we’ll care for your home. Come visit us, meet the team, tour the facilities, feel the atmo­sphere and compare us to anyone. We’d love that.
