Omar Galindo
Century 21 Real Estate Alliance
About Omar

I was born and raised in Redwood City. I am a current resident of the North Fair Oaks community of Menlo Park where I am raising my family. Besides real estate and family, my other passion is sports and I often find myself volunteering and or supporting youth sports events. Working as a real estate agent and helping people realize the American dream has become my passion since 2003. I have developed a deep understanding of the different communities that make up the wonderful Peninsula. This knowledge is a valuable resource that I am proud to offer my clients. During the 2008 “Real Estate Bubble” I was one of the very few agents in the Bay Area that became a specialist in negotiating Short Sales. It required a great deal of time and patience to learn the way banks work but my number one focus during this time was helping my clients avoid foreclosure. I helped hundreds of families settle debt and avoid foreclosure. I used unconventional methods to find bank contacts with top management authority. Having direct access to people with the authority to approve short sales and postpone foreclosures and was a huge benefit to my clients. I have helped hundreds of people buy and sell and no transaction has ever been the same. I love the challenges and often find myself negotiating some difficult deals. Buying or selling Real Estate is, for most people one of the most important investments of their life and my number one priority is to make this process effortless. I will work diligently to understand your goals and expectations and provide you with the most accurate information to your questions or concerns. If you are a seller, I will provide you with a full assessment of your home and give you access to my trusted and professional list of designers and contractors to help prepare your home for the market. You will be amazed at how small changes can have a big impact on maximizing your profits. If you are a buyer, my knowledge of the area is not the only valuable resource I can offer you. My experience working with many investors and contractors have given the opportunity to learn about the construction and building process. With this knowledge, I make sure my clients are well informed of any needed repairs and can rest assurance they will be getting the best property for the price. We have seen many changes in the Real Estate market these past 16 years. As a real estate agent, I make it my priority to stay informed with current laws and market changes. My clients deserve the best service and experience and that is my number one commitment to you. Thank you for visiting my profile. I look forward to the opportunity of working with you and helping you, your friends or family with any of your Real Estate needs.

During this process, you want to get to know the agent’s business and find out how well they know the area. You’re listening for things that signal experience, expertise in your community, and workload.
