Helped me rent a Condo home in Downtown, Los Angeles, CA.
I sought Monique's help and expertise when I relocated from NYC to LA in 2009.

I was a bit anxious about finding the right home since I was not familiar with the local housing market and Monique put me at ease. She is personable, reliable and has excellent follow-up skills. Monique was sensitive to my strict time line and advised me while I was still in NYC and did her homework ahead of time and wasted no time in finding the right home once I officially moved to LA. Monique's excellent negotiation skills resulted in me finding the right home in a somewhat tricky downtown real estate market.She knew the downtown area very well and found me an excellent deal. I was impressed with her integrity and attention to detail from start to finish.

As a customer, I highly recommend her and will not hesitate to work with her again when I look to buy in the future.

Bought a Single Family home in 2010 for approximately $400K in Silver Lake, Los Angeles, CA.
The prospect of buying my first house was nothing short of daunting. I was losing sleep worrying about a world I had no idea how to navigate. I also was determined to get a FHA loan and that seemed to turn a lot of people off. Through good fortune (and I mean that) I met Monique Carrabba (of the Carrabba Group). Monique was not phased at my literal list of questions, and seemed as excited at the prospect of me being a home owner, as I was. I had heard through more than one friend that their realtor was rushing them through the process...almost over-encouraging them at every home they were interested in. Instead, Monique had me explain to her why each home I was interested in was a 'right fit' for me....and what I found is that some of them were not. Monique is kind, funny, charming, and a loyal advocate when it comes to the deal. Also, this was no rushed process for me. Monique stood patiently by my side, in an unpredictable market working tirelessly, and made sure I walked with the best deal possible. Months later I still love my home, and am still so grateful for Monique's expertise, ethics, and savvy.

Bought a Multi Family home in 2009 in Mid City, Los Angeles, CA.
Monique was constantly on top of our plan adjusting which homes we looked at based on our likes and dislikes of the previous homes. When we finally settled on a house, she was there every step of the way making the process fast and understandable to me. She worked around my work schedule to arrange visits and even after the process was done, kept in contact with me to make sure everything was alright and answered any and all questions that came up. She also gives some gifts along the way!

Sold a Single Family home in 2010 for approximately $325K in Inglewood, CA.
Monique is very knowledgeable of the areas of Los Angeles in which we were interested. When we were not sure of some neighborhoods, she made sure she would research the pros and cons if she did not know from the top of her head. Monique answered our questions and there were many, very quickly and patiently. You can tell she loves what she does, which shows in her enthusiasm. We would highly recommend her services to all our friends and family.

Bought a Single Family home in 2011 for approximately $525K in Glenwood, Glendale, CA.
We cannot be more thankful to Monique and Joe. Monique is a great house hunter with a great artistic taste with solid inspection knowledge and Joe is an excellent lawyer and good negotiator that makes this talented duo unique.

We did our property hunt for five months while we are abroad and they supported us to find and buy what exactly we were looking for within the budget. Monique tailor made video tours for preselected properties and posted on her web account to view it in one click. Watching is believing - we found goods and bads on the property through the videos - mush better than just researching on MLS. Her comment is honest and very reliable to determine the true value of the property and the street & area. Each time I had a chance to come to LA, she kindly offered an half day ride from LAX to visit the properties we selected and showed me around the area.

Each bidding process was a great pleasure and fun rather than a stress. Their advices are priceless and always helped us to make the best decision. Monique's deal making skills were truly impressive. They are restless and it was very easy to catch up with them even we were in different time zones.

We are also grateful of Monique and Joe's top notch "after care", which was just incredible. While we were in the escrow, they continued assisting us on further inspection, bidding contractors for renovations, gardeners and everything to make the house a perfect new home for us.

We are certain their work will satisfy everyone, especially who is new to LA. They are not only a great realtors but great individuals. We are very proud of our new friend in LA.

Thank you Monique and Joe!

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $725K in Mid City, Los Angeles, CA.
Finding a new home can be an emotional roller coaster. Having a real estate agent that you can trust makes the ups and downs of the home buying journey much easier to navigate. Having two agents that you can trust almost makes it like a walk in the park. That's what my partner and I found in Monique and Joe. We felt an instant connection. They were transparent and supportive and went out of their way over and over to ensure that we found the perfect new home and guided us through the entire home buying process. Even when we found our new home they were a constant resource for everything from a reliable handyman to landscapers to painters. They are more than just realtors - they've become our neighbors and our friends.

This husband and wife duo are extremely knowledgeable and helped guide us through purchasing our first home. They provided great service and a balanced perspective. They noticed many details about homes and contracts that we would not and really made us feel we were in good hands. We never felt a burden with so many questions and never felt rushed after looking at months of houses. I found them by randomly clicking on a link to inquire more about a listing online. I am extremely happy we chose to work with them. I am sure you will be too!

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $725K in Del Rey, Los Angeles, CA.
A friend recommended Monique and Joe, since he was very happy with they had worked together. I have to say I will personally recommend to my friends as well. Right from the beginning I felt at ease. Since the property I acquired is my first home, they took the time to walk me through all the steps I would need to go through, and made it very clear how to approach this buy, from doing offers all the way to doing the inspections in the final stage. I had very little to worry about the paper work, and could focus on making the calls on offers. I always felt that they were there for me, and they were available every time I needed their support to visit a house or needed to meet with them for questions. Last but not least, I really appreciated the fact that they work with competent people they trust when it comes to doing inspections.. Over the courses of the 5 month I was looking for my house, I must have seen more than a dozen, had 4 of them narrowed down that really fitted my needs, and Monique and Joe really understood what was were the key points in my choice.

Bought a home in 2013.
I just want to say that I am really happy to have found The Carrabba Group to work it. They are all very helpful and educated. I worked mainly with Monique and she was one of the nicest people that I have seen. She had an answer for all of our questions. She was so helpful to us and we learned a lot from her. She helped us purchase our first town house. She made the process so peaceful that, I recommended her to my brother who is now in process of purchasing a house with their help. Once again would like to thank Monique for making the process easy and peaceful. They have an awesome team. Keep up the good work.

Sold a home in 2013.
Joe and Monique Carrabba got me a higher price for my property than I thought I could get. They brought in a sophisticated set of buyers, who made immediate offers, and ultimately closed the deal quickly and without a great deal of disruption or fanfare.
