Monarch Realty/Broker #1298971
Michelle & Garret Morioka

The Morioka family has been servicing the San Jose, as well as, the rest of the Silicon Valley areas for over 50 + years. My father Edward & my mother Ann (Morioka Realtors) were the pioneers that helped establish today's modern brokerage. They were a big part in me obtaining my brokers license in 2000. I still can remember my father getting his listing from the local MLS service by having them delivered in stacks of paper held together by "large metal loops" (There wasn't any internet to sign on to and easily find the listings we have today). I also have memories of a few orchards that were still growing fruit in the San Jose area. The popular Valley Fair Mall was an outdoor mall and Santana Row was a Town and Country shopping center.
We at Monarch Realty have seen the changes in real estate in this valley both price-wise and development-wise. Our knowledge doesn't stop with history, here at Monarch Realty we are constantly learning and taking courses to further "sharpen" our skills in real estate. Monarch Realty keeps up with the technology available that is needed to make your transaction run smooth. 
We have the historic/geographic/demographic knowledge of the area; and being residents of the bay area for most of our lives we are very familiar with the life styles that people seek. Furthermore, we feel that we have a mission to carry on a legacy started by Edward & Ann Morioka. Give us a try we would love to achieve your real estate dreams.

My wife and I highly recommend Michelle and Garret Morioka for their residential real estate expertise. Their attention to end to end details, from anticipating our needs and requirements to following up with closing details post sign off, made our recent home purchase a non event. We have worked with several realtors for prior home purchases, but we plan on using Michelle and Garret's service for our future property needs.

We decided to sell our home in Hayward, CA, and move to a new construction in Morgan Hill, CA. In searching for a realtor that best fit our needs, we needed a realtor who was: - Licensed – Must have the all industry credentials and versed in current laws and regulations. - Accessible – Available to answer any of our questions and concerns with a smile. - A Good Listener – Actually hear what we wanted. - Knowledgeable – Willing to make recommendations and provide guidance. - Service – Customer comes first attitude. Within months of putting our home for sale, a buyer was located and at the price we requested. The transaction could not have gone more smoothly during a very nervous and hectic time. To this day, the owners of Monarch Realty continue to provide guidance when we ask for it – no strings attached. If you should wish to speak to us further, please do not hesitate to contact us.

When looking to buy real estate for the first time in San Jose, I needed a company that would listen to my needs, sort out the confusion, and find the best house for my budget. I was happy to find Monarch Realty, a smaller company with many years of area knowledge. Garret Morioka, provided several initial consultations before even looking at properties to find out what my personal needs included. Only after he felt he understood did he search neighborhoods and properties. I wasn't pushed through the process like had been done before because the agent just wanted the commission. After looking at several properties, he found me a great location and price. I am very happy with my new house and would recommend Monarch Realty for all your real estate needs.
