About Monique

A fifth-generation Californian and third-generation native Angeleno, Monique Carrabba is an accomplished Realtor with vast local knowledge. Monique grew up in Toluca Lake, moved to Hancock Park, then purchased her first home at the age of 24 in Echo Park as she was determined to never to be a renter. Soon after, in 2005, she formed the Carrabba Group with her husband, Joe Carrabba. Though buying and selling a home can be a difficult and stressful time of your life, Monique knows it doesn't have to be. She goes above and beyond to make the process as stress-free as possible, offers guidance without pressuring clients and secures the best price. This commitment to the extra mile can mean scheduling repairs, staging homes or holding estate sales. Monique even once drove an elderly seller and her two cats to Wichita, Kansas, when her car broke down. A home is often the biggest investment most of us will ever make, so Monique does whatever it takes to ensure things go smoothly-even after the transaction has closed. Monique knows what sells and what doesn't. Prior to listing your home for sale, she'll suggest necessary improvements to increase property value and marketability. If you're a buyer, Monique will assist you with budgeting whether the home requires extensive renovations or minor improvements. She'll conduct a thorough market analysis and guide you on pricing and offer amounts to ensure that you're not selling yourself short or overpaying for a property. Honest and direct, Monique will advise you on times to buy, sell or wait. Prior to her real estate days, Monique worked in human resources and accounting at Art Center College of Design and later at the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA. Monique loves what she does and is always honored when chosen to work with a client. Whether it's an oceanfront estate in Malibu, a fixer-upper in West Adams or Mid-City, a home in Silver Lake or a property in the Valley, she serves diverse clients in a wide range of price ranges and areas. But don't just take our word for it. Check out our reviews!

Steven Moritz
Sotheby's International Realty - Moritz Properties
About Steven

Over the course of his 25+ year career, Steven Moritz has been fortunate to receive many industry awards as well as annual recognition for his sales performance. Ultimately, he takes the most pride in the fact that referrals account for the majority of his business. For a real estate agent, getting a referral from a past client is the highest compliment one can receive. Steven was born and raised in West Los Angeles, studied Economics at UCLA and continued his education at USC, where he earned his MBA. Before entering the real estate brokerage field, he practiced as a CPA for the international firm, KPMG, and served as corporate controller for a large real estate development company. Steven has been working in the Westside his entire career and almost every day he sees someone that he helped find a home. He loves hearing what they’re doing with the property and that they’re happy or that they’ve outgrown the home and want his help with their next purchase. That kind of ongoing relationship brings him the most satisfaction. In addition to having established himself as an expert on the Westside of Los Angeles, Steven has been able to help his clients buy and sell properties internationally benefiting from the worldwide presence of the Sotheby’s International Realty brand. Steven is proud to be among the top 1% of California real estate agents every year since 1992 and for the past 15 years, he’s consistently been a member of the California Top 100. He has helped more than 500 families find the home of their dreams. Steven was recently recognized as one of the Top 25 Sotheby’s International Realty agents in the United States based on Closed Transaction Volume. Steven and his wife, Melissa, have raised three children on the west side of Los Angeles, and Steven has continued to be involved in community sports and activities on the Westside throughout the years. Steven truly believes that his love of this area is communicated to his clients and that his enthusiastic desire to enjoy every facet of Southern California has made him knowledgeable about more than just real estate. The Westside offers countless enriching year-round opportunities that Steven takes pleasure in sharing with his clients, including great dining, outdoor recreation, cultural events or sports events at the local rec center. When he works with a client, he believes in introducing them to a community and a lifestyle, not just finding them a place to live. Steven looks at his position as a consultant and advisor to the many buyers and sellers he represents. This has always been his signature approach, and it is reflected in the comfort and trust that his clients have in him.

What should you look for when interviewing a real estate agent in Malibu?
When you sell a house, your real estate agent becomes your business partner, financial advisor, and emotional support system. It’s crucial to partner with someone you trust, so make sure you’re looking for an agent who can answer all of your questions with confidence during the interview. During this process, you want to get to know the agent’s business and find out how well they know the area. You’re listening for things that signal experience, expertise in your community, and workload. Selling a home takes an enormous amount of work, so you need an agent who’s got a plan for prep, pricing, and marketing and who is ready to roll up their sleeves to get the job done.
Read more
How important is it to hire a top real estate agent in Malibu?
Our data shows that the top 5% of listing agents sell homes for as much as (+9%) more than the average real estate agent. A great agent makes a difference when you buy a house, too: We’ve found that the top 5% of buyer's agents on average save their clients 2.5% more on their home purchase. So, whether you’re in the market to find your dream home or sell your house at a great price, the right agent matters. We encourage you to connect with a top real estate agent if you’re buying or selling a home in Malibu, CA.
Read more
When is the right time to hire a real estate agent in Malibu?
The best window to contact an agent to sell your home is anywhere from three to six months in advance of your list date. When you start the search for an agent several months before hitting the market, there’s plenty of time to find the best agent, make key renovations, and market your home effectively, all of which are essential steps in selling your home for a great price. You can also hire an agent based on the best time to sell in Malibu to take advantage of seasonal and cyclical trends in the market. The right time to hire a real estate agent depends on the temperature of the housing market. For example, the best time to sell in Malibu is in May. And since it takes around 3 months to close on a home, you should list in February. We recommend that you hire a real estate agent as soon as you're thinking of selling your home. Generally speaking, that's anywhere from 3 to 6 months prior to your desired move date.
