Discover the Milligan Process

Meet Garret Milligan

With a generational legacy in both the region as well as the field of real estate, few other real estate professionals are able to claim the knowledge, expertise and understanding of historical and community nuances that are so innately and deeply ingrained in Garret’s background, and to the skills he contributes to the profession.  As a lifelong resident of Rancho Santa Fe, and having worked side by side, along with his Mother, a committed, successful and local real estate professional for over 30 years, the education, tools and resources that Garret is able to draw upon are, both, unmatched and responsible for the unrivaled results that his years belie.

Garret is proud to have built a vast network of industry resources, professional alliances and large repertoire of satisfied clients. With a proven mastery at executing sales within record-breaking time frames, Garret enjoys, and prides himself on, his reputation for working with a large group of repeat and referral clients.  To earn and keep the trust of clients, time and time again, is due to the meticulous attention to, and execution of, each and every aspect of a real estate transaction.

“It is rare to find someone with so much passion and pride in what they do. Garret answered every single call, text, and email promptly. He helped to identify all the details of my home which needed attention prior to even hitting the market. His knowledge in the real estate industry, and the positive relationships he has built with his clients and vendors, made the entire process move along quickly and efficiently. My entire experience working with Garret was enjoyable, effortless, and successful.”

– Jill S.

“Garret is a privilege to work with. His patience, professionalism, diligence, and insights are second to none. The value in hiring Garret goes beyond his real estate expertise. I never once waited for him to get back to me, he anticipated problems and preemptively handled them, making buying a house in 2021 easier than I would have imagined possible. I wholeheartedly recommend Garret and will 100% work with him again for future home buying and selling.”

– Eric & Jennyfer H.

“We have worked with Garret for almost ten years. Most recently, he was able to find and secure us a home off market, while simultaneously selling our existing home at a record price for the neighborhood! Garrett navigated the process seamlessly on both sides. We could not be happier with the results that his professionalism, responsiveness and strong work ethic helped us to achieve. We would recommend him to anyone and will undoubtably work with him for all our future homes.”

– Brandt & Brooke R.

“Garret helped me find my first home and I couldn’t be more grateful for his help. He’s extremely patient, and very thorough with his clients. He’s not afraid to give his honest opinion and ultimately wants to make sure that he gets you a home that you will be thrilled with. This is something that’s difficult to find with most realtors, as they just want the sale. Since my home purchase, he has helped many of my close friends and clients as well, and I’ve yet to meet anyone who has had anything but a fantastic experience with him.”

– Grant C.

“Imagine merging four generations into one home together. During our search for a house that met all our needs and desires, Garret was diligent, knowledgeable, helpful, and above all, patient. He has extensive and valuable knowledge of the real estate market and as a result we now have the perfect home. Garret was a pleasure to work with and we highly recommend him.”

– Jane F.

“Thanks to Garret Milligan’s domain expertise of Rancho Santa Fe we were able to find our dream home. Garret is patient, thorough and very supportive during the stressful process of looking for a new house, and especially in this highly competitive market! He was on top of all the steps during closing, working with the seller to get everything we wanted, including getting all the repairs done on time. We highly recommend Garret!”

– Franz B. & Portia L.T.
