" This week, the sale of my house closed at 99% of the initial asking, which was absolutely amazing. When, I bought it, it had languished on the market for more than six months, gone through a price reduction, and I got it discounted 35k from that reduction. So, when I first started thinking about selling, I was a little worried that I might encounter the same problems. Thanks to Maty, I need not have worried. After seeing the place for the first time, she formulated a plan to get it sale-ready, and after I left LA for my new home in China, she took those plans and saw them through to completion and perfection. Flooring, doors, windows, painting, cleaning, and all the little fixes that needed to be done, I didn't have to worry about any of it, because she was on top of all of it. And, as it turned out her plan was right on target. Everything was done so well, the buyers signed off on the contingencies without asking for any additional repairs or price reductions. We went from zero to closing in less than 3 months from our first meeting, so thank you, Maty...job well done! :) From Facebook post." - Jeff Axelrod (Zhangjiagang, China)
" Maty is without a doubt, the best realtor we have worked with! She helped us sell our condo and buy our dream home and we closed within 5 days of each. Our constant questions, demand for tiny details and need to understand every piece of the process was met with patience, enthusiasm and her always positive attitude. She was an amazing partner in this detailed home buying and selling process. We will certainly be recommending Maty to everyone we know! " - Reg & Alex
"We are so grateful to Maty. As the trustee of my late friends estate, it was important that the sale was handled with extreme care and discretion as there was a young beneficiary involved. Maty made the process very easy. There were land boundary questions that we did not have answers to and she called on experts who came and eased our concerns at no extra cost. She prepped the house for sale by finding vendors whose detailed work made the house look its best. She supervised the work and was attentive to every detail up until the closing and beyond. We highly recommend Maty for her work ethic, kindness and communicative manner. She made a very difficult process much easier to bear. Thank you! "

"Dear Maty, Thank you for your tireless commitment and for making the sale of our home a smooth and pleasurable process. Your enthusiasm is absolutely infectious. Your attention to detail and your guidance from staging to closing is unrivaled and not something I’d ever experienced selling a home in LA. I want to buy and sell more houses just to work with you again. Thank you for your positive outlook on everything. " - R. G.

I learned early on the value of hard work, leading with a can-do attitude, and nurturing relationships. I credit these values with my early success on Spanish TV in my hometown of Miami. My transition to host Mike and Maty, a morning talk show on ABC, first brought me to Los Angeles. Years later, while hosting several programs on HGTV, my interest in real estate began.
As a mother of two, I have been blessed to serve on several school boards, happily leading an army of volunteers to successfully run festivals, auctions, art programs, and more. On air, I have raised funds for Public Broadcasting and I am a proud member of The Colleagues. This non- profit group supports The Children's Institute, Inc in their efforts to end child abuse and neglect in LA. The Compass Charitable Giving Fund resonates with me as I believe it is our duty to give back to our communities.
I feel privileged to live in Westwood with my husband of 30 years, Tony and our children, Christopher and Caroline. We take full advantage of all that Southern California has to offer. The ability to be able to visit the ocean, mountains, and desert in the same day still blows my mind!
I look forward to serving your real estate needs with the full support of my team and the unequaled service that Compass provides.
