Matt Rapf was the consummate professional. In a challenging market, he persevered and constantly came up with new and creative marketing ideas to get us the maximum exposure and expose our property on multiple platforms. His incredible attention to detail, follow through and excellent negotiating skills made us feel that he treated our home as if it were his own. In a market where many were lowering their prices, Matt believed in our home so strongly that he urged us to raise our price which proved to be the best strategy and culminated in a successful sale. To have an advocate like Matt whose guiding principal is excellent service is what everyone wants in a real estate professional. We give Matt our highest recommendation and also many thanks!

Matt was extraordinary. We have been buying and selling property for many years, and never before have we experienced Matt’s level of commitment and expertise. He kept us informed every step of the way, and remained focused and enthusiastic with a steadfast marketing strategy and overall plan. Although Matt’s other listings were in a much higher financial bracket than ours, we always felt like his number one clients. Not only did he get us top dollar for our property, he managed all of the necessary details during escrow and kept our stress to a bare minimum. We feel incredibly lucky to have Matt as our realtor. No one compares!

In a person’s lifetime, if they are very, very lucky, the day may come when they buy a house in Malibu. Buying a house at the beach can be fraught with all the difficulties of any real estate purchase and then some. I have had the unique pleasure of becoming a Malibu resident in large part thanks to Matt Rapf. In the beginning, ours was strictly a professional relationship based upon a desire to find the right house on the right beach. As the years have gone by, those lines have been deeply blurred by a real and abiding affection. I started out to buy a house, thanks to Matt I found a home.

Matt Rapf found us the perfect situation in Malibu. In a highly competitive market, Matt was able to find us a beach house quickly, for the right price, secure the deal and see it through completion easily and without complication. Matt is a joy to work with.

I am writing this letter to describe the excellent experience that we as a family had with Matt Rapf, representing us in the sale of our condominium. From the beginning he was nothing but professional. Matt constantly informed us of progress, he regularly held open houses, and afterwards would update us on whatever progress was made. In only seventeen days Matt sold the condominium for what I believe was the highest paid price for a condominium in that area. It was a delight to work with someone where we never had a cause for complaint, who was always available to answer questions and to see that he did everything that he was capable of to sell the condominium. We would not hesitate in recommending Matt as an agent who would represent a seller for a home at any price. It was for us a pleasure.

Matt Rapf found us our dream house. We called him and told him what we wanted and he went right to work. The recent real estate market has been not only been one of low inventory, but of extremely high prices. Due to Matt’s relationships within the Malibu community, he found us the ideal property before it hit the market and he got it for us at a great price. We put our confidence in Matt and it paid off. He is the ultimate professional and a pleasure to work with at all times. His easy going manner is a welcome relief. We are indebted to Matt and would recommend him to anyone looking to make Malibu their home.

Matt was very knowledgeable and very hands on. My wife and I were first time home buyers and he really took the time to walk us through the ins and out. He was patient and attentive the whole time. His vast experience was evident and paid off in his advice on our offer which the listing agent said made all the difference. His recommendations for inspectors et. al. were impeccable as well. Overall nothing but great things to say about Matt. He knows his business, knows his area, knows his resources, and is easy to work with--just a great guy. We'll use him next time for sure. Thanks Matt!
