    Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $950K in Adobe Meadow - Meadow Park, Palo Alto, CA.
    Matt is just Awesome!!! We wanted an agent that could help us sell our house while finding us a new place. After talking to several agents, we decided to list with Matt because of his expertise in the Palo Alto area and his responsiveness. And we are so glad we did. He was realistic about the market and the listing price. He took care of everything for us - from arranging for cleaners, to staging the house to fixing stuff. The house got sold within a week with multiple offers and way above our asking price! The same was true when it came to buying a house. He always made sure he had our best interest. He helped us find our dream house in 10 days - we were nervous about the entire bidding game. But he worked his charm this time too and was able to get our offer accepted out of 11 bids. We truly enjoyed working with him - he is also a great human being. We look forward to working with him again in the future and would definitely recommend him to friends and family! Thanks so much, Matt.  MoreLess

    Sold a Condo home in 2013 for approximately $1.05M in The Willows, Menlo Park, CA.
    Matt Skrabo was patient & pleasant with my wife and I throughout the process of selling our first home and buying our second, both in Menlo Park. He diligently helped us prepare our first house for sale, held catered open houses, and took out full page ads on multiple occasions. When deciding how to price our house, Matt provided market research, comps to other house sales, current pending transactions and information on market trends. During the search for our new house, Matt would promptly email us MLS listings for review then did his research and took us to each listing we showed the slightest interest in seeing. He met us at basically any time or day that we needed to, and would spend as much time with us as we needed. When we found a house that we wanted to make an offer on he was very prepared and successfully negotiated the deal below the asking price.

    We enjoyed working with Matt and would highly recommend him to our friends and family. Matt thank you for treating us like we were your only client and always looking out for our best interest.

    Bought a home in 2012.
    Matt is a terrific broker, negotiator, and friend. We purchased our first property through Matt and his team, and there is a reason why we will stick with them on our next purchase.

    His three areas of strength include: (1) Communication, (2) Persistence, and (3) Negotiating.

    During the buying process, we never felt pressured and Matt worked hard at presenting all the facts to us so we can make our decisions. He always kept us in the loop and prepared us with what the next couple steps were going to be so we were never surprised about anything. I can't emphasize how important his strengths are in helping us not only have our offer accepted but ultimately getting the best deal in a market where you usually over pay in a bidding war.

    Matt knows the Peninsula market very well, and he is very good at understanding pricing and supply. You want Matt as he is also familiar with the micromarkets of the Bay Area. This is a result of him being a third generation Bay Area Realtor and his deep due diligence that goes into every deal providing him and his clients an edge over the competition. More important than anything else, we felt confident in Matt given his personal character and dedication to his community.

    We've been living in our new home for two months now and we couldn't be happier with our decision and going with Matt. We felt like we had an all-star cast working for us which made a stressful nerve-wracking experience something to learn through and feel confident with the result. Thanks Matt for all that you do.
