Wayne Garrahan

Wayne Garrahan’s Value Proposition

As a native of Saratoga since 1969, I am well positioned to assist clients who want to know the real estate market, neighborhoods, schools, activities, restaurants, culture, and “inside scoop” of Saratoga, Los Gatos and Monte Sereno.  I attended Foothill School, Oak Street School, Redwood Jr. High, Saratoga High School and West Valley College.  Thus, I KNOW the area intimately!

I love the Bay Area/Silicon Valley and am also knowledgeable of the real estate market and communities of Campbell, Cupertino, the Rose Garden, Santa Clara, Sunnyvale and Willow Glen.  My mission statement is to deliver to my clients superior, thorough, and professional representation that they will consider the best in the real estate industry.  I am passionate about assisting clients with finding their dream home or investment property, as well as enabling sellers to get the highest possible price for their home via creative marketing and effective negotiating.  For both buyers and sellers, I insure their real estate transaction is seamless, stress free, and closes on time. 

I always put my client’s needs first and foremost, in my mind and through my actions.  I understand and honor discretion and utilize a consultative sales approach.   I adopted the 24/7/365 philosophy in my high-tech sales career to always be available to my customers, and have carried it forward in my real estate sales career.  My philosophy is to deliver exceptional service to my clients before, during, and after the sale.  My mission is to be your REALTOR® for life and I will do my best to earn that privilege every day.

Continual education is of great importance to me.  I regularly attend real estate training sessions to insure I am knowledgeable of the latest contract changes, laws, codes, and technology tools to incorporate in my business.  I also help educate my clients and insure they understand the purchase contract and disclosures involved in the transaction.  In addition to being a licensed California REALTOR®, I have a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration from California State University Sacramento, and a Master’s of Science in Systems Engineering from San Jose State University.
