Testimonials

________________________________

We were very happy to have Jose Peralta and Matt Ciociolo work with us to buy a home and sell our older home. Jose scheduled all meetings and interactions at our convenience after work and on weekends. He provided us with outstanding advice about how to prepare our home for sale and placing offers for our newer home. He provided a profile on the house for people touring and provided comps for price comparisons for our new home purchase. He promptly answered and returned allphonecalls.  He had advertising (Internet and hard copies) in place as soon as possible for potential buyers for our home he listed. He worked hard, illustrated a great understanding of contract details, negotiation etiquette and documentation.

Our home for sale had multiple offers within the first 30 days after listing. I am confident that the reason we were able to sell our home, at a great price point during a tough market, was because of the advertising and activities conducted as well as the broker opens that Jose and Matt held. They found us a great new home located in a great gated community in a great neighborhood. We really appreciated Jose and Matt’s calm reassurance and expert advice throughout the entire process (both buying and selling). They were outstanding professionals and we highly recommend them to all others that are interested in buying or selling a home.

Sincerely,

Cliff Kodama & Sabine Littlefield

I had the pleasure of working with Jose Peralta and Matt Ciociolo in searching for a new home in the summer of 2008. At that time, my search was just beginning to expand into the Santa Clarita valley, and other than “north”, I knew absolutely nothing about the demographics or housing market that existed there.  From my very first informative phone conversation with Jose one Sunday afternoon, my two month search with Jose at the helm was a pleasant and professional one.  Jose and Matt’s knowledge of the area was impressive and insightful, and even though I was probably one of their more difficult to please clients, they never stopped being supportive of my unusual needs.  Thanks to Jose and Matt for taking such great care of me, I appreciate your hard work very much!

Sincerely,

David Edminster

To Whom It May Concern:

We would like to recommend Jose Peralta and Matt Ciociolo, Realtors from Remax of Valencia, for the excellent job they have performed during the past several months.  They have helped us find an investment property in the Glendale/Burbank area.  We found both Jose and Matt to be very pleasant and helpful to work with.  They both helped us find a condominium in our price range, and did everything possible to accommodate our requirements.  During our search for investment properties, Matt, with whom we worked with the most, was very patient with us.  One of his best qualities was listening to exactly what we wanted and answering all of our questions.  Along with all of this, he remained professional and worked hard to find us the right property.  Matt provided us with every possible option so that, together, we could best decide upon the path that was the most beneficial to us and helped achieve our real estate goals.  Matt was always showing us multiple listings within our chosen area with great enthusiasm.  He showed us dozens of homes that met our criteria, and finally, we found the right property.  During very stressful times, like around signing the final contract and closing escrow, Matt and Jose’s professionalism in carrying out their responsibilities as our agents were beyond reproach.  Their attention to all the details, responding to phone calls and keeping us abreast of everything that was happening certainly took a lot of the pressure off us. With their in depth knowledge of the real estate market, real estate contracts and escrow closings, they helped to steer matters and successfully close the transaction on time.  Besides being actively involved in the closing of the property, Matt and Jose went the extra mile and helped us find a good renter quickly so that the property was vacant for the minimum amount of time with minimum loss.

We feel that purchasing real estate through RE/MAX of Valencia was a wonderful and successful experience that we will remember and will want to avail of in the future should another opportunity arise.  We appreciate all of Matt and Jose’s efforts and hard work along with their professionalism and constant communication.  We would highly recommend Matt and Jose to our friends for any of their real estate needs.

Sincerely,

Kuljeet & Rita Arora

To Whom It May Concern:

Jose and the Matt are true real estate superstars and we highly recommend them. They sold our Santa Claritacondo—during a difficult economic period when 2-bedroom condos were a tough sell and in quite large supply. Using creative marketing strategies such as advertising on Craigslist with great photos and hosting several strategic open houses, they located buyers for our place. Even when we’d lost faith that our place would ever sell, Jose and Matt kept optimistic, reminding us “it only takes one buyer”.  Jose and Matt were with us all through the buying and selling process—from making sure we understood how best to show our house, to driving us around looking for our new place (despite the fact that our area of interest was 30 miles away), to keeping us calm through some trying times while in escrow.  Even after our sale was completed, Jose and Matt have been there for us. Recently we had some plumbing problems in our new place and needed some information from the seller. Jose called the seller’s agent nearly every day for two weeks so he could supply us with what we needed.

We recommend Jose and Matt without reservation and, though we have no plans to move anytime soon, would use their team’s services again in a heartbeat.

Sincerely,

Jennifer Conklin

What could be said of Matt and Jose?  We marvel at their professionalism and patience.  We spent over a year looking for the ‘perfect’ home that would best meet our needs and Matt and Jose stayed with us to a beneficial conclusion.  We were not concerned necessarily with a location but rather with the best property for the money.  Our search took us from Laurel Canyon to Granada Hills from Encino to Porter Ranch and through it all Matt and Jose remained supportative seeking only to find what we wanted.  We also ran the gambit between short sales, REOs and conventional sales and Matt and Jose kept us up to date on the changing market conditions and made their opinions known as we viewed numerous properties.  You could spend countless hours finding an agent and ending up frustrated in that choice or simply call Matt and Jose since they are indeed the best in the biz.

Sincerely,

Jim & Terry Marks
