Mike Gargiulo

A long-time resident of the Bay Area, the past 10 years in Marin County, Mike launched his real estate career with Vanguard after spending 25 years in Retail and Commercial Sales and Client Experience Management in the Home Interiors and Fashion Fields with Room & Board, Gap, and Guideboat. Mike combines his passion for Bay Area real estate, his experience renovating homes, and his love of working with people, to offer a high level of service and commitment to each and every Client.

Mike understands how important and meaningful it is to buy or sell your home, and prides himself on providing a great work ethic, sound guidance, collaboration, integrity and consistent communication throughout the home buying or selling process. Mike is a great listener, and makes it a priority to gain an in-depth understanding of his Client’s wants, needs, and expectations, so that he may best represent them throughout the process. He is honored and excited to be a part of a Top Producing team at Vanguard Marin, and has strong relationships with numerous Bay Area Realtors, Contractors, Mortgage Brokers, and Interior Designers.

One of Mike’s biggest passions is finding houses with “great bones” that have potential to be reimagined and renovated into beautiful homes. Over the past 10 years, Mike and his fiancé (who is an Interior Designer) have performed full re-designs and remodels of their Oakland and San Rafael homes, and are embarking on their next remodel project this fall. These experiences have developed Mike’s knowledge of home design and construction principles, as well as his experience working with architects, contractors and inspectors, all of which he brings to the home buying and selling process.

Originally born and raised outside of Reno, NV, Mike attended the University of Nevada Reno and then migrated to the Bay Area where he has been ever since. In his free time, Mike loves to explore new areas of Northern California, hang out with his dog, Marty, and attend as many concerts and live shows as possible! Mike loves kids and animals, and is a supportive and active member of Children International, PAWS, Milo Foundation, and Save the Bay.
