Team reviews

Apologies for the long review, but I felt it was the only way to get our point across properly on how Matt Skrabo literally made our dreams come true at a time that we felt discouraged and hopeless. So, this is our story (as short as possible): In this market, who you are working with really matters. My wife and I had our hearts set on raising our children in Burlingame, CA. Our search lasted about 1 year, during which we made offers on 8 different homes and were typically one of the top 2-3 bidders. Over time, we realized that it just wasn't working with our current realtor, so we parted ways. A colleague recommended Matt Skrabo, and said that Matt was appalled to hear how many offers we had made without a winning bid. I spoke to him that day, and because we were at the lower range of a fast-moving market, he recommended we open our search to other areas as well. We were adamant about the fact that Burlingame was where we wanted to be. About 3-4 hours later, I received a call back from Matt and said he had done some legwork and spoke to the selling realtor of a home that we expected to be out of our range. He arranged for a private showing that evening and our offer was accepted the NEXT MORNING!! We are so grateful to Matt-- he literally changed our lives.

Sold a Condo home in 2015 for approximately $750K in Laurelwood, San Mateo, CA.

Matt is in a class of his own, and there surely is no other agent in the area who is as professional and as fun to work with. He is very low-pressure to work with, but gets things done and puts plans in motion at lightning speed. We sold our property incredibly quickly (others in the same building are still for sale weeks later), and at a price that exceeded our original target. I now consider Matt a good friend after working together on my sale, and I would surely look to him first for any future real estate transactions in the SF Bay Area. Highly recommended!!!  More Less

Sold a Condo home in 2014 for approximately $825K in Laurelwood, San Mateo, CA.

Fastest sale ever! Matt did an excellent job with an other unit in our building. Glad we decided to invite him over to talk about listing our unit next spring time. Next morning he showed up with a potential buyer and presented us with a cash offer. Never needed to go to Market! Very professional and eager to make things work. Modern paperless workflow.

Highly recommended!
