"I just can’t say enough wonderful things about Garret. When I finally decided to sell my home in Fairbanks Ranch, I immediately contacted Garret. I had listed my house a couple of years ago but then made the decision to stay in the house I loved. Garret never tried to talk me into keeping it on the market. He simply said, you’ll know when the time is right, and we can list it whenever you’re ready. No pressure ever from Garret. Just support.
When I finally decided it was just too much house for me alone, (my husband had passed away 7 years ago) I again called Garret. He was just amazing. He handled every aspect of the sale. He would arrive at the house early, turn on all the lights, open all doors and windows, and ensure everything was just perfect for potential buyers to walk through the house. When they had left, Garret would always call me to let me know how the showing went! And when it came time to go through disclosures, He sat by my side to ensure nothing was missed.
He was quite frankly amazing! My house was sold to wonderful people in 60 days! And I can’t thank Garret enough. He did just an amazing job of selling my home. So thank you again Garret, I wouldn’t use anyone but you ever again!" -Gloria R.

"We just closed on our property in Rancho Santa Fe that Garret sold for us and we couldn't have been happier with his service. Garret was always on top of everything. He had great marketing ideas and had our house exposed to every possible buyer. His reputation is impeccable, and his work ethic is amazing. We would highly recommended Garret to everyone." -Craig and Karen E.

"Garret, I have to say for a third time that I am impressed with your professionalism and effectiveness. Let’s toss out your age in these comments as I would attest to anyone it’s irrelevant. Each of these transactions; my Rancho Pacifica home, the Bridges, and Encinitas; have been complicated transactions on roughly $10,000,000 in real estate. We toss around silly numbers as we live in SoCal, but the reality is that these are significant assets with many complications, financial intricacies, etc. You have done a great job of promoting the properties using your resources, managing prospects, executing showings in the least invasive manner possible, negotiating, managing challenges along the way, and FINISHING. Congrats and thanks to you and your team for doing such great work. On a daily basis I deal with people that fall below even the most reasonable expectations and you are a rare exception to that!” -Nick E.

"We worked with Garret to find a property in the RSF covenant that was perfectly suited to our tastes. Throughout the process, Garret demonstrated a “beyond his years” patience and thoughtfulness to understand our preferences and quirks. After an iterative process of showing us a house, hearing our opinions, and refining the vision, Garret put before us a listing and suggested that we take a look. Indeed, he understood us perfectly! Garret conducts his business professionally – on time, prompt in his response, and on point with his advice. We feel lucky to have had Garret working with us through this challenging process." - Jeff and Gina S.

"As first-time home buyers, we initially tried to do as much research online on our own. However, we quickly realized we needed help navigating the road to home buying. Garret was extremely responsive, professional, and always available to answer questions or concerns. He is knowledgeable about the entire home buying process and had some great recommendations. He is an excellent communicator and helped us understand each step of the process. Garret was instrumental in keeping things moving forward to a successful closing despite a few bumps in the road during escrow that were out of his control. When we are ready for our next home, we will no doubt be giving Garret a call." -Andrew and Lynnea F.

"Garret was proactive in keeping things moving and responsive when we had questions. Despite a couple of false starts, we had our place sold quickly and at the price we had hoped for. He worked for us, making sure the process did not bog down at any time and kept us informed every step of the way." -Michael and Laura S.

"Lesson of the day... Don't blindly use the "standard bearer" in any industry. When selling my house, I chose the BIG NAME agent that has sold properties in RSF for years and years... all the fancy ads, glamorous selfies, etc. I finally had enough and after a contentious separation, moved on to give the listing to a young man, 25 years old, new to the business, whose family is also in the real estate business. The contrast was remarkable. Less than two months after listing with Garret, I had a cash buyer with a 30 day close. Garret handled everything from inspections, utilities, knocking out any issues... It was easier than buying a pair of sunglasses online. So thank you to Garret Milligan, he did a great job along with his team and I only regret not choosing to list with him initially." -Nick E.

"Garret did an outstanding job selling my home. He is always looking for top dollar, knows the market, is professional and quick to respond. His ideas of staging and painting work well. He knows what he is doing and is an exceptional agent with the utmost integrity. His company Compass backs him 100%”-James L.

"Garret was so very helpful when we reached out to him to assist us with the sale of our home. He helped us to stage our home and present it in its best light. We were exceptionally impressed with his market knowledge, attention to detail, and his responsiveness throughout the entire process. Our experience could not have been better, and I would highly recommend that you reach out to Garret Milligan if you are looking to buy or sell a home in San Diego.”- Michael B.

"Where do I start? Garret has been a childhood friend of mine for the last 25 years! When it came time to selling our home, I knew Garret would, without a doubt, be our realtor! My husband and I gave Garret our requirements and “must haves” when it came to finding our perfect home. Garret not only took the time to show homes to us (we saw quite a few), but also was extremely realistic when it came to our future, pointing out things the average buyer doesn’t always think about. He is a straight shooter (which I can appreciate) and always had myself, husband and daughter’s best interest. When it came to selling our home, he told us what we needed to do in order to get it “show ready” and guided us in the direction toward a quick sale. We listened to his recommendations and with that.... our house SOLD in 2 DAYS!!!!!!!!!!! On top of that, we sold over our asking price! He is extremely talented at what he does and takes pride in every detail of his work. If you’re looking for a realtor that’s going to take care of you, represent you in a professional manner and be honest ... Garret Milligan is your guy! Thank you, Garret, for everything!" - Collin & Hannah N.

"I worked with Garret for 5 years to find the house that worked for me. From start to finish, Garret had all the bases covered. Continually sending out new listings and conveniently scheduling showings when I was available. Throughout the whole process Garret was very professional beyond his years and cordial. All the time keeping my interests at heart and remembering what I strongly liked and disliked about each property we visited. Once I decided on a home, he held my hand through the purchasing process to ensure I got everything done correctly and on time. In the end, I couldn’t have been any happier with his knowledge and professionalism in helping me find the right place." - Tony G.

“If you're looking for a real estate agent to help you find a home in the San Diego area, I'd like to recommend Garret Milligan. He was introduced to me by a dear friend, Mark A McLaughlin. Garret doesn't just know the area; he helps you explore the area to find where's right for your next home. He spends time with you. He gets to know you. He gives you the inside story. Plus, he's super personable, friendly, and just a good person. Thank you for your help, Garret.” -Brian S.
