Team reviews

I don't even know where to begin with the rave reviews. Monique and Joe are so experienced and are the absolute perfect team. Between the two of them, they can answer any question and tackle any problem - any detailed question on any form, any detail uncovered during inspection or negotiations. They knew what issues to prepare for before they ever even arose. They are experts on the market and they are incredibly hard working. They negotiated brilliantly. They communicated incredibly effectively and efficiently. They also went so far above and beyond the call of duty and greatly exceeded our expectations. They met contractors. They called moving companies. They helped us sell items from our home. They helped stage and present the home well. I could go on an on. We so enjoyed working with them and were so thankful to have them as partners during every step of the process. They are THE BEST.

Bought a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $800K in Adams Hill, Glendale, CA.

Joe and Monique have gone above and beyond what you would expect of real estate agents. They are extremely professional, always on time, and alway make sure their clients are satisfied. They also helped me by providing the right property inspectors, property searches, architects, escrow contacts, renovations, and just really overseeing the whole home-buying process through the start to finish. I couldn't be more happy with my new home they found for me! I would recommend them to any serious homebuyers who want a professional real estate team that gets the job done right.

Bought a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $700K in Palm Springs, CA.

Monique and Joe were excellent to work with during the search, negotiation and purchase of the house in Palm Springs. They were very proactive in providing pre-search info, organized our time effectively for touring homes and helped us quickly narrow down our selection. Once we chose one, they provided local assistance beyond the norm while we were out of the area. They met with inspectors, appraisers and took care of local requirements. They were excellent negotiators as well! Truly a smooth and quick process thanks to their professionalism, experience, and effectiveness.

Bought a Multi Family home in 2014 for approximately $1.075M in Mid City, Los Angeles, CA.

It was just by happenstance that I met Monique and Joe Carrabba. Searching the internet for duplexes in the Hollywood area of Los Angeles, I found one that looked like it might be what I had in mind. Pictures of several brokers were shown on the page next to details about the property. Mistakenly thinking I was calling the listing broker, I called Monique Carrabba at the Carrabba Group. After telling me that she was not the listing broker, she suggested that I allow her to show me the property. I did and that was how a great relationship came to be. After touring several properties it became evident that suitable properties could not be found in Hollywood for a reasonable price. The Carrabba’s however are very knowledgeable about the surrounding areas and because they understand what I was trying to accomplish, they were able to steer me to nearby neighborhoods which offered much greater value for the same money. Monique put me on her email list which exposed me to a lot of properties. When I saw one that might work, Joe, my wife Kim and I would go take a tour. We did this a number of times. Each time we viewed a property I was able to refine my search parameters. I never felt like Joe felt showing all these properties was an imposition and I never felt I was being pressured to make a decision. After discussing the price of a couple of the properties we looked at it became clear to me that the Carrabbas were extremely knowledgeable about the value of properties in the areas in which we were looking. After that I relied exclusively on them to advise me on pricing my offers, no need for a second opinion or my own due diligence. We made a couple of offers and were outbid just as the Carrabbas said we would be. I never felt pressured to raise my offers to secure a deal. After a number of months of looking we were able to find, in a really good neighborhood a place that exceeded our expectations, at a fair price, all because of the patience, persistence and knowledge of the Carrabbas. We are very happy with our investment. I can’t overemphasize how much I enjoy working with extremely competent, honest people. The Carrabbas are two of the best.

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $1.325M in Mid City West, Los Angeles, CA.

Joe and Monique Carrabba set a record of price per square foot for 90046 as our selling agents in 2014. This review is so very overdue. They didn't do just a great job for us, they did a spectacular job. We had interviewed 2 different agents who did not agree with what we wanted to list for – they suggested lower which I assume would bring a quick sale. Then thankfully we were referred to Joe and Monique who knew our market and knew what had to be done to get our price. We did a lot of work to get the house ready and it was worth it. After only 1 open house not only did we have 4 offers, but we got substantially over our asking. Joe was indispensable in getting inspections, painting, repairs and all sorts little time consuming things completed. He was a wealth of knowledge and we were able to move quickly. He had all the right contacts AND he scheduled everything AND he would be there in person to meet. He even climbed over a tall fence in his nice clothes with not one complaint to let in an inspector because I forgot to leave him a key. Honestly they set the bar so high we found it to be quite a let down having to work with a different agent now that we sold and had to find a new home. Would never have gone to anyone else but Joe and Monique, but sadly we were looking at homes out of their area. I don’t need to go on because all the other great reviews mirror our experience. You cannot go wrong with this team they WILL get it done for you.

Sold a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $725K in Crenshaw, Los Angeles, CA.

Joe and Monique are the best. They were hardworking and patient as we navigated buying a home in a very competative market. They gave sound advice based on experience and wisdom which led my wife and I into a great home in a neighborhood where values are rising. They were available 24/7 and genuinely cared about finding the perfect home for our family.

Joe and Monique Carraba represented my husband and I in the sell of our first home and the purchase of our second and forever home. They were consummate professionals who also worked with our family's best interests at heart. They were strong negotiators and made sure our family's best interests were met. Buying and selling property can be a daunting and overwhelming process but they were able to negotiate and manage a schedule in both transactions so we closed on the sell of our first home and two weeks later closed on the purchase of our new home. They also helped us deal with a difficult transaction on the buying side (i.e. conservatorship, uncooperative seller, and home in need of major renovation and repair). It gave us great comfort to know that Joe is also an attorney and knows the law. He was able to scrutinize the many contracts that came our way. They coordinated a range of inspections from basic to specialized including engineering, soil and geological inspections so we were always informed on the condition of the property we were purchasing. We consider then our family realtors and also friends. P.S. We got our full asking price thanks to pricing our property right and their relentless work ethic.

Joe and Monique are the best agents in the business. They are available at all hours of the day to answer phone calls, emails and texts. Both are able to provide help with any questions someone may have. I will recommend all my clients to Joe and Monique in the future for all real estate needs.

Sold a home in 2015 in Mid City, Los Angeles, CA 90019.

Monique and Joe are an excellent team. They impressed us right from the beginning with their level of expertise and professionalism. My parents had finally decided to put the family home up for sale, after more than 35 years, and they really took the time to understand our situation and objectives, and tailor a marketing strategy and campaign that brought real results. 10 days after listing, with just 2 open houses, we had more than a dozen offers rolling in, with several above asking. It was a dream result and they were there to help us every step of the way, sorting through the offers and getting us through final negotiations. We cannot recommend them highly enough.
