Monique Carrabba

    • Updating my original review now that we have sold a home and purchased two homes with Monique and Joe. They were there every step of the way and made sure things went smoothly. You'd be hard pressed to find harder working or more knowledgeable real estate agents in LA.

      - Caitlin R, 2020
    • Monique & Joe are a dream team to work with. From the over-the-top level of service to being incredibly attentive and knowledgeable, we could not have had a better experience buying a house with them. We were introduced to them through a NYC realtor as we were looking to make a cross-country move and did not have the best experience with Redfin or similar platforms that would assign random agents. We really needed someone who intimately knew the local market, could understand our specific needs, and most importantly, be our eyes-and-ears on the ground in California. When I say, extraordinary service, Monique & Joe would go out of their way to pick me up and drop me off at LAX so that we could squeeze in a few viewings between flights, they would conduct detailed walk-throughs with impeccable video recaps so we could view homes virtually from NYC, they would reiterate the need for masks & safe hygiene to anyone we had a physical touchpoint with. Even after the sale closed, they offered to have our furniture shipped to their house and delivered to us personally on move-in day so we would not be without furniture. When COVID hit and our internet installation was delayed, Monique came over to drop off a WiFi jetpack. These are just a few examples of their thoughtfulness and consideration. Their knowledge and experience is also undeniable. As we weren't familiar with the area, they helped us narrow down the neighborhoods that would most suit our needs and fit our lifestyle. Due to their extensive relationships with other agents in the area, we were able to find a property that was off-market. We ended up with a larger property than we thought we could get, for under the budget we had anticipated. Our offer was accepted immediately and the entire process was seamless. A buyer's dream! Monique and Joe are the real deal. They made the entire home-buying process frictionless and we will continue to recommend them to all our friends & family.

      - Jenny L, Hawthorne 2020
    • Joe and Monique are the only people well ever work with when buying or selling a house. They are amazing. There simply cant be anyone better. Theyre extremely knowledgeable, seemingly work around the clock, and are just great people.

      - Nicholas B, Los Angeles 2020
    • Joe and Monique Carrabba helped us to complete a simultaneous buy-sell transaction a couple months ago, and we are incredibly grateful for them! It's hard enough just purchasing a home, but trying to juggle two escrows took home buying to a completely new stress level. Luckily we had Joe and Monique beside us the entire time. We used Joe and Monique for our first home purchase a few years prior, and once again, they went above and beyond the call of duty. Joe and Monique are extremely hands-on. They weren't afraid to get their hands dirty and do some heavy lifting when it came to staging our home for sale. When it came to the purchase of our new home, their knowledge and experience was invaluable, and they were able to provide amazing advice to us throughout all stages of the process. They are super personable, and have become more like friends to us than realtors. We still talk all the time. I would highly recommend them for anyone looking to either sell their current home or purchase a new home (or both). They are an absolute pleasure to work with!

      - Rachel P, Los Angeles 2020
    • had to sell a family home in LA, 400 miles away from my Bay Area residence. Interviewed several agents and found Monique and Joe who happened to be selling the home next door for a record price. Our home needed major upgrades after years of neglect, a daunting task for an owner that did not live in the area. Monique and Joe not only understood what was required to make the house sell quickly but essentially became part of our family team over the next 10 months from remodel to listing. They not only offered excellent advice on upgrades that would make a difference to prospective buyers but went out of their way to help purchase material, interview and oversee a dozen different contractors, store materials in their own home that was too valuable to leave in an unoccupied home. The list goes on and on quite frankly. Throughout this 10 month process my family regularly said "we cannot believe how much help Monique and Joe are providing" and noted we would be lost trying to prepare the house for sell without their amazing dedication to helping their clients. From helping find great and economical contractors, suggesting design ideas appropriate for the market and area, guidance on the daunting permitting process and searching for hard to find materials to go with our 1910 home, there was a helping hand every step of the way. Monique and Joe are an amazing team with expert knowledge, service and attention second to none. On top of that we also miss working with two such warm hearted people.

      - Jeff S, Los Angeles 2021
    • They were excellent -- friendly, professional, responsive, helpful. I wouldn't hesitate to use them again. They're also a great team, because they have complimentary styles and strengths. They put together several wonderful video and pictorial tours of the house -- one in astonishing 3D -- and went above and beyond to deliver great service. They gave good advice throughout.

      - Jane W, Hollywood Hills
    • Joe & Monique are the only realtors our family would consider working with, in Los Angeles County... I don't even know where to begin singing their praises. We were introduced to them through our family realtor in Ventura in 2011 & almost a decade later, we feel as if they are family friends now too. Their dedication to my changing needs, genuine thoughtfulness, thoroughness of work, the expanse of their expertise in real estate, markets & even the laws surrounding these, I can't even count all the ways in which I trust them - & let's be real, in this town of the BBD, that is an exceedingly difficult title to find: TRUSTWORTHY. They are as good as it gets quality people. Even as it's been years since closing on a deal, I still get a birthday card with a kind note every year, invites to fun events, try to get a workout class in with Monique when we can line our hectic schedules up, (well, we did, pre-coronacrazy) I can't tell you how many people I have introduced Joe & Monique to, recommending their services. Truly, they are THE BEST.

      - Billie P, West Hollywood
    • We have just sold our home after a long decision process and occupying tenants. Joe & Monique Carrabba were with us and committed from day one to the close of escrow. They were more than our agents helping us sell our house; they helped manage our property and acted as our on-site representatives impeccably. They were overwhelmingly responsive to issues from our tenants and communicated promptly with us. Their communication I cannot thank them enough for all their support and advice. They truly went above in their commitment to represent us and our interests.

      - Emily G, Los Angeles
    • 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 Carrabbas 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 cant overemphasize how much I enjoy working with extremely competent, honest people. The Carrabbas are two of the best.

      - Robert N., 2015
    • Monique and Joe are a power team in real estate. They have boundless energy, impeccable taste and a boatload of patience while house hunting. When it comes to making offers and navigating escrow they are prompt, and professional. They even went above and beyond connecting me with talented trades-people to execute some renovations before I moved in. Everything about the experience was smooth and I'm sure that I got the best house for me at the best possible price.

      - Homebuyer, 2018
    • Knowledge. Experience. Professionalism. Patience. Personable. Joe and Monique are all these and more. The Los Angeles real estate market is brutal, especially for buyers, and Monique and Joe were with me every step of the way (for over five months). With Monique and Joe, you get two for the price of one. Between the two of them, there wasnt one thing they didnt know or one innovative idea they didnt come up with. They were always there to write offers, visit properties, and eventually, close on my new home. I always felt like I was their most important client. Frankly, I dont know when these two sleep, they seem to work all hours of the day, every day and were always there when I needed them. And in addition to their business acumen and professionalism, they are good people. They were personally invested in me and my dream of buying my first home. There are a lot of ways buying a new home can go wrong, but there is one way to ensure it goes right: make Joe and Monique your agents.

      - Michael J., 2018
    • Joe and Monique are a terrific team and great agents. Monique has a strong vision, aesthetic and negotiating skills and Joe is the attorney and has operational excellence. They connected me with a lender who helped me to build a very competitive offer, enabling me to beat out several multiple offers on an incredible house. Joe and Monique also have a qualified and reliable network of vendors -- everyone from gardeners to electricians to plumbers -- which they mobilized for me to get the job done. They were also very thorough with the inspections which provided us with significant negotiating leverage. I can't begin to express my gratitude to them. I wouldn't have been able to have gotten through this process without their direction and support.

      - Jimmy S.,2018
    • I can't say enough about Joe and Monique and their level of service. End to end they took care of seemingly every detail of my sale for me, which I really needed since I live in Northern California. From Day 1 they were utmost professional, understood my needs, knew the local market, and really walked me through the process. They were hands on in every respect starting with suggesting cost effective upgrades, arranging for handymen, exquisitely staging the property, lining up professional photography, putting together a sparkling listing, and of course, showcasing the property at open house and broker tours. When it came time to review offers, their negotiating skills really shined and they were able to lock in a final sale price that exceeded my expectations. Honestly what more could a client ask for?? They were a fabulous team and I honestly felt I got the benefit of two pros for the price of one! Extremely lucky to have found them, as everything from start to finish with my sale went as smoothly and successfully as I could've dreamed thanks to them.

      - MJ S., 2019
    • Monique and Joe were amazing! They gave us wonderful advice all along. They were professional and kind and incredibly helpful. And they found us our dream home! Highly, highly recommend.

      - Abigail R., 2018
    • Monique and Joe are the absolute best. They are kind, knowledgeable, and extremely helpful. We could not imagine going through the buying a house process without their guidance. If you are looking to buy a home in LA go with Monique and Joe. They even spent an entire Saturday giving us a tour of the area we were looking to consider. A++

      - Zoe M., 2019
    • We had a property in a very unique position (a high end home in Beverly Hills, torn down, and remodel just started). Joe and Monique were able to find a buyer for us, even in a down market! They are extremely knowledgeable, and they put together a specific, targeted and thorough marketing campaign. As far as I'm concerned, they are the best!

      - Ben R., 2019
    • If youre looking for a house, condo, property to build your dream home, or you have a property to sell, I have a SUPERB recommendation for you. It took just 13 days from start to finish with Joe and Monique Carrabba. In less than 1 week, we had not just one offer, but EIGHT and 10 days later (today) the deal closed. They personally staged the property in style, and presented it extremely well. Youre guided through the process every step of the way with courtesy, professionalism and service. They made it a point to meet us, visit our property, list it and sell it. You could not ask for more. You don't deal with someone taking a message or telling you they will call you back later. They take the time to answer questions, arrange inspections, meet with interested parties and represent all that they serve. THANK YOU MONIQUE AND JOE, YOURE AMAZING!
