Sold a Single Family home in 2004 in Locust Fork, AL.

I met Giancarlo in 2004 when as I was trying to sell an investment property on my own as a For Sale By Owner. He approached me to take it off my hands and handle the sale for me. After a few months of it not going anywhere, I interviewed many top brokers in Burbank area; the one who stood out the most was Giancarlo. He told me he would be able to sell the house for more than I was asking. I wasn’t having any luck because I wasn’t marketing the home correctly as I soon discovered. I laughed! He said “You don’t believe me? Give me a chance and see what happens”. So I laughed again and gave him a chance. Sure enough, he was right. He sold it for more than I was asking and within three months. I was extremely happy and extremely impressed. Since then I have referred Giancarlo several times to other friends/family. Each and every time he has impressed. Today we are good friends and I can call him just to say hi or ask any Real Estate question.

Sold a home in 2011 in Kagel Canyon, CA 91342.

Giancarlo came referred to me through a mutual friend that I work with. He had helped them sell their house through the short sale process rather than go through a foreclosure and unfortunately we were going to have to do the same. Obviously my husband and I had no idea of what a short sale was or how to go about it so we starterd asking around. Even though there was no guarantee that the bank would accept the short sale, Giancarlo was extremely confident he would get them to accept it. It was definitely a lengthy process but thought it would be more stressful then it actually was. Giancarlo handled everything for us from A to Z and relieved us from so much stress during a very difficult period of our lives & having two kids. Not only was the short sale accepted, he made sure through the current laws that we didn't have to pay any money back. In fact he was able to get the bank to give us some money to help us move! Because Giancarlo advised us to do the short sale rather than let the property go to foreclosure our credit is now restored, we just got approved and are able to buy again. Needless to say he will be helping us purchase our next home very soon :)

Sold a home in 2010 in Van Nuys, Los Angeles, CA 91406.

I NEVER write write any reviews but felt that people don't get complimented enough when they do a good job so here it goes. I was a first time buyer and Giancarlo came strongly recommended to me through a friend whom he had sold their house for. I was really nervous about buying because I'm a single teacher and had no idea about prices, loans or anything. Giancarlo made everything seem easy and the process went so smoothly. Whenever I needed help or had a question he was always there and always answered his phone. What really impressed me is when he called me a year later to check and see how things were going. He told me I should call my direct lender and check into refinancing because the rates had gone down since I bought a year ago and could save money. So I called my lender and refinanced and because of him I saved an additional $320 a month! Him and his wife are now good friends of mine and I refer him to everyone I know who's looking to buy or sell. He doesn't work with everyone so if he works with you consider yourself lucky!

Bought a home in 2009 in Canoga Park, Los Angeles, CA 91367.

My wife and I had been looking for a house in the Woodland Hills area for quite some time. After less then pleasent experiences with our first two realtors, we stumbled upon Giancarlo at his open house. We instantly knew after 5min of speaking with him that he was the level of professional realtor we were looking for. Whatever question we had he had extensive knowledge on. Taxes, mortgage, Real Estate, insurance, home warranties he was super knowledgeable and on point. Not only did he find us the perfect house for us, he also helped us negotiate the asking price lower when we were prepared to pay asking price. He even helped sell our parents house. We highly recommend Giancarlo

Bought a home in 2014 in Hermosa Beach, CA 90254.

Seldom do I feel compelled to leave reviews viewable to the general public; however, our home buying experience with Giancarlo was top notch and very worthy of such a review. The professionalism, expertise and determination he consistently displayed were second to none. As someone who generally likes to be in control of situations, I was able to take a passive approach and be efficiently and effectively guided through the entire process. Overall we were extremely pleased with all aspects of our purchase and highly recommend him to others.
