About Sylvia Garrett

I have worked in a service industry since 1980 and know each transaction must be handled in a professional, trustworthy, and efficient manner. Having lived in this area and working with volunteer organizations to raise in excess of $1.5 Million, I have developed strong negotiating skills to benefit my clients .

Since 2005 I have successfully represented my clients in over $100,000,000 in sales. Each client has received individual, personal attention. My clients range from first time buyers to experienced investors. I have represented several in multiple transactions and I am honored when my past clients call on me to help their children and parents. Over 90% of my clients have been as a result of personal and professional referrals from Orange and Los Angeles Counties.

I am fortunate to have access to a wide range of resources so that my clients get up to date information before, during and after their sale or purchase. This information is in the form of statistical information drawn from at least three different sources. My goal is to give my clients as much factual information so that we can make educated decisions together.

Using this methodology has enabled me to be designated a *Five Star Real Estate Agent from 2010 though 2021.  This places me in the top 3% of all Real Estate Agents in Orange County.
