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 wasn’t one thing they didn’t know or one innovative idea they didn’t 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 don’t 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.

Joe & 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 & 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.

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.

Joe and Monique are undoubtedly the best real estate couple EVER! We had a very modest budget and were looking for a home in LA. With our parameters, it seemed pretty impossible, but Joe and Monique were extremely encouraging! We certainly weren't their biggest clients, but they never let us feel like we weren't top priority! The entire time we worked with them, they made us feel like we were their only clients. Joe and Monique were there for every appointment and every inspection, and they offered great suggestions and advice. They answered all of our millions of questions and really helped to take the stress out of what is typically a highly stressful experience. We would gladly recommend Joe and Monique to anyone looking to buy or sell their home. They were absolutely wonderful!

I cannot say enough good things about Monique and Joe. We are first-time homebuyers, which is intimidating to say the least in the LA real estate market, not to mention we were looking at a major fixer upper. Monique and Joe did some serious hand-holding, and helped us through every step of the process, from finding a lender to helping work out the right mortgage to getting our offer approved to meeting us at the property for endless inspections/contractor bids to negotiating a very sizeable repair credit with the sellers. They were available at all times of day and late-late night, and addressed my various anxieties and concerns with real solutions and great advice. They are both so extremely knowledgeable and savvy, there were at least a dozen times we faced seemingly insurmountable obstacles and they found solutions to each and every one. I truly believe there is NO WAY we would have closed on our house if it weren't for them. Monique has continued to help me even after the closing with advice on contractors and renovations. I'm so happy we went through the process with them and I highly recommend them to anyone in the market.

I'm not usually given to superlatives and hyperbole on the internet, but working with Monique and Joe to sell my precious house was a truly remarkable experience. Selling a house is hard. But when you have a team -- and yes, they do work together as a team -- it almost seems effortless. Because I was on the other side of the country when I made the decision to sell my house, I relied on Monique and Joe for EVERYTHING. And they delivered EVERYTHING. Without a single complaint. Not one. They packed me up (the entire house), they managed my vehicle, they pulled all the permits, they got bids on every job, they got all repairs done, they found new carpeting and choose the paint, and found every service necessary to make my house shine. They coordinated everything! And they did it all according to my budget, always trying to avoid waste. I married into the real estate business many years ago and it was a nightmare. But none of that horror re-visited while working with Monique and Joe. They are honest. Professional. Wonderful. And they work and work and work. The sale was a huge success, and I know that The Carrabba Group created that success. Work with them and see for yourself!

We chose Monique and Joe Carrabba over a couple of other well-qualified realtors. Ultimately, we went with the Carrabba's because we've known them since moved to Picfair Village. Through their volunteering and participation, they are very much part of what makes this a great community. Since we were moving out of the country prior to the home going on the market, we ultimately decided they would be the ones we could most count on to represent our needs locally. What we weren't expecting was the marketing genius of these two. Not only did they make sure they house was staged beautifully, but they got the word out in every way imaginable. The sheer amount of foot traffic in the first week was incredible. Also, taking their advice, we ended up with multiple offers, which turned out to be a huge deal. They managed to over-deliver without over-promising, which is all we could ask for. Joe and Monique are good people, and you would do well to have them on your side.

I don't even know where to begin with the rave reviews. Monique and Joe are so experienced and are the absolute perfect team. Between the two of them, they can answer any question and tackle any problem - any detailed question on any form, any detail uncovered during inspection or negotiations. They knew what issues to prepare for before they ever even arose. They are experts on the market and they are incredibly hard working. They negotiated brilliantly. They communicated incredibly effectively and efficiently. They also went so far above and beyond the call of duty and greatly exceeded our expectations. They met contractors. They called moving companies. They helped us sell items from our home. They helped stage and present the home well. I could go on an on. We so enjoyed working with them and were so thankful to have them as partners during every step of the process. They are THE BEST.
