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!

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.

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.
Read more
What is the average real estate agent commission for agents in Malibu?
While individual real estate agent commissions do vary, most real estate agents in Malibu work for 6% of the home price.
