Choosing Battiata Real Estate Group was the best thing I could have done. It did take longer than I would have liked at no fault of the Short sale team, longer since I had a tenant that had utilities turned off right at the final inspection with seven days to closing so the buyer withdrew at the last minute. Also the loan was sold in the middle of the process which also starting things from the beginning and they were not willing to play nice. The team kept me informed of all that was going on and if I had questions, they got back to me almost immediately. Laura and Jessica kept me calm during the storm and were always there with just what I needed to hear. They got the job done, were very informative and professional. The Battiata Real Estate Group comes highly recommended! Less ... More

We used the Battiata Group to short sell our home. The short sale process is a long and difficult process but these real estate professionals made it much quicker and easier than we had anticipated. Matt had experts negotiate the whole process from making a sale in a week (we had offers the first day) to negotiating with Bank of America for the short sale. Matt can handle the whole process through email and phone calls. We even closed from out-of-state. Short selling a home can be an emotionally draining experience. His team understood this and was not only professional and efficient but timely and kind, My wife and I are eternally grateful to Matt and his team for carrying us through this intricate process.

I first got I touch with Battiata through their website. I submitted a question online and got an email back from "Matt Battiata" asking I call him when available. I call the number and I was expecting an office assistant, but lo and behold it was Matt Battiata himself on his cell phone. He is THAT personable. Over the following weeks we had many pleasant conversations on how to handle my particular situation. After we realized I owed more than I could get for the house, we decided to go through with a short sale. Matt assured me that with the current status of the market, we could find a buyer inside of a weekend. Which is exactly what happened! Through the process I had spoken to several other wonderful young ladies on staff at this firm all who were very patient to our annoying situation, and very helpful all the way through. We just closed escrow yesterday, and I couldn't be happier. I highly recommend them for selling a home! They were very professional at every point in the process, and met the expectations they set the whole way through. I understand short sales don't always go through. But fortunately ours did. Thanks Matt and company! Less ... More

Outstanding! The amount of support, encouragement and professionalism of the Battiata Group got me through a very difficult and tumultuous process. Hats off to Jessica, Sarah, Laura and many others for their tireless efforts. If anyone were to ask me for a recommendation, ?The Battiata Group? would be the first words out of my mouth.

Battiata Real Estate Group did a great job selling our home! They are very responsive, professional, and knowledgeable. They have a team of specialists to help you through the process, so no one person has to know or do everything. That may be considered a negative if you prefer to work with one person through the process, but I felt it helped the home sell faster and more efficiently. This also helped with responsiveness as more people are available to discuss your sale with you. I would recommend them to friends and family. Less ... More

Having to put your home up for a short sale is not such an easy process. From the moment we called the Battiatta Real Estate Group and spoke with Matt Battiata, we felt we could have confidence in their representation. All the staff we dealt with, long distance, via phone and email were very responsive and showed concern and understanding. We felt we had the best guidance we could have during an emotionally negative situation.

My husband and I just completed a short sale through The Battiata Real Estate Group and we have nothing but great things to say about them. From beginning to end, everyone we worked with was courteous, professional, and extremely hard-working. We would definitely recommend them.

I just short sold my condominium with Battiata as my agent. I was very pleased with their work from start to finish. They were extremely responsive, diligent, competent and hard working. I often received answers to my emails and phone calls well beyond normal business hours. The Battiata team went above and beyond my expectations. I was treated as if I was a huge client and my sale was going to bring Battiata tens of thousands of dollars. Being a short sale, I paid nothing directly for their services, but when I saw how little money they made from my short sale, I was surprised. I couldn?t believe how much time, effort and attention I received. I will definitely use Battiata real estate services when I eventually sell my home and will recommend them to friends and family for future real estate needs. Less ... More

Very professional service from beginning to end. Even the photos looked professional! Awesome job Cristina! I liked that I could easily contact anyone at Battiata by phone or e-mail and there was never any reason to show up in person - doing everything by phone and e-mail was outstanding. Thank you so much for making this such a smooth experience for a first-time seller!

Thank you Battiata Team. I started the Short Sale process after attending one of Matt's seminars. The staff I worked with were great. Always kept me informed and let me know what to expect each step of the way. Even after being declined by Fanniemae the Battiata team resubmitted my short sale package again and kept working to get the short sale done.

Back in 2011, my husband and I decided it was time to sell our 3 condos. As all of them were underwater, we knew we needed to find a real estate firm that specialized in short sales. A colleague of my husband?s referred us to Battiata Real Estate. I made the phone call and spoke to Matt about our situation. He assured us he could get an offer within 30 days and close the sale in 6 or 7 months. I was skeptical because I?d heard numerous nightmare stories from friends whose short sales had dragged on for over a year. The first sale went off without a hitch ? I listed my rental property for sale in December and it was sold by July. The second sale was not so easy. We got an offer right away, but that buyer backed out. We secured another offer fairly quickly, but a few days before the sale was approved, my lender sold the loan to another servicer. Everything had to be redone ? all the paperwork I had filled out ? and our bank statements and tax returns resubmitted. The short sale team at Battiata Real Estate took care of everything, with the exception of documents that needed to be signed. However, they warned me it would delay the sale by at least four months. Almost a year later, after much negotiation between the short sale team at Battiata Real Estate and my first and second lienholders who couldn?t agree on a settlement, I had to resubmit my application for a short sale as a HAFA short sale. So many FedEx packages arrived at the house from Battiata Real Estate that my 2 year old daughter saw one being delivered and said ?That?s a Battiata!? After that, the first lienholder had to agree to a payout to the second and the sale went forward as planned. It was a lengthy and sometimes frustrating experience, but it was made easier by the very capable short sale team at Battiata Real Estate. I could not be more grateful for their patience and determination. My husband?s condo sold with a week of mine and we can now begin rebuilding our credit rating and moving on with our lives. Less ...

I was extremely happy with the results of my short sale by the Battiata Real Estate Group! Everything went so smoothly and was thrilled when my transaction was completed in under 90 days, even faster than expected. If you need to go through a short sale, then Battiata is the place to go!

We recently sold our condo through Battiata Real Estate Group. It was a short sale and it took 13 months. We were very glad to work with a company that had a lot of experience with short sales. Everyone on the team handled all the twists and turns of the short sale process with professionalism. I felt they worked hard to get escrow closed - If I had to do it all over again, I would definitely use them again.

We recently sold our home through Battiata Real Estate Group. It was a short sale and we were told that the process could take several months. It ended up taking 15 months and it was a long road! The primary reason that we selected Matt Battiata was because of the promotional seminar I had attended. Matt said his "team" has done many short sales and are therefore very familiar with the forms and paperwork that go along with them. I want to say that the most helpful and understanding person in the office is Fiel Barrow. They rest of the "team" helped us navigate through the unpredictable short sale process and worked to get escrow closed as soon as possible. Less ... More

We were pleased with Battiata Real Estate Group because they helped us navigate through the unpredictable short sale process. Although the process took 10 months, they kept us up-to-date on progress and made sure that all our questions were answered. They do a lot of short sales and are therefore very familiar with the process. The team communicated well with each other and sent us all the necessary correspondence and forms in a timely manner.

I recently worked with the Battiata Real Estate Group to complete the short sale of my property and they were basically outstanding throughout the entire process. Initially I worked with an individual that left the company during my process and communication was a little difficult during this period.However, once her replacement made contact with me they perfromed all of their duties exceptionally well. I must give credit to Sarah Spence for her efforts in making this process a success. She was professional, responsive to my inquiries and on top of things at all times. I am thankful to have worked with her through this process. All things considered my overall experience with the Battiata Real Estate Group was excellent and I would recommend them to anyone.

I inquired about a short sale in 9/12, the home was placed on the market in Oct. 12 once my tenants were gone. It immediately got offers but the lender was not very willing to sell since the property was underwater. Finally in Jan. an offer came through that was accepted by the lender. I was informed of things as they progressed, they walked me through the whole process. This property is on the west coast and I live on the east coast so I needed to feel confident in my realtor. Email is a great thing when dealing with distance. The entire group is very professional and knowledgable. Thank you Battiata team for all you did. Less ... More

Matt and his team of exceptionally professional individuals guided my husband and myself through the sometimes muddy waters of California Real Estate. We just closed on our home in Oceanside and purchased in Vista. The process was slightly delayed but not due to anything related to the Battiata team, rather extenuating circumstances.

Matt Battiata is an expert on short sales and his staff has extensive knowledge and expertise of the current market. Matt and his staff made it easy for me to move, lending me their moving truck at no cost. Matt and his staff were willing to explain the short sale process step by step, which aided my comprehension and eased my concern. I would highly recommend Battiata Real Estate for a short sale.

I was so far under water on my condo that I joked that I was actually beneath the earth's crust. I caught one of Battiata's commercials and attended one of his seminars. I feared the hard-sell, but found Matt informative, and I was able to leave the seminar without any pressure put on me to do anything, which I appreciated. So, several months later, when I decided to start the short-sale process, I called the Battiata office. It was a long, emotional roller coaster ride, but nine months later, my short sale concluded successfully, and I'm very grateful to my Battiata team for navigating the crazy, incomprehensible short-sale process on my behalf. And it truly is a team effort--one person handled my first bank, one person handled my second bank, and a third handled the actual sale. Certainly, there were bumps along the way--someone forgot to mail me the package of financial documents to fill out at the start of the process, and one of my team member's (no longer with the company) explanations of things were hard to decipher, but beyond that, my frequent questions (digital hand-holding, I called it) were always answered quickly, and I can't complain about a successful resolution. My short sale was complicated by the fact that two banks were involved, and those banks would make decisions (and delay making decisions) that caused an incredible amount of frustration during the process, but 'my Battiata team' would always explain what was happening and suggest alternate courses of action to reach our final goal. Believe me, it was a nail-biting process, and I feel I aged 20 years in the past 9 months, but the Battiata folks I dealt with were great--they reassured me when things were looking bleak, they were creative when we hit dead ends, and they always treated me with respect. This may sound corny, but I felt a special bond because I felt we had in some sense spent so much time in the trenches together. Less ... More

I had seen Matt's commercial (big grin and all) several time prior to considering which way to go with our property. It was while in attendance of one of Matt's seminars that I was certain that his agency would follow through on what he had said in his commercial. But a heartfelt thanks to all the support crew at the Battiata Real Estate Group for keeping it all together and answering all the 'silly' questions. It was a pleasure doing business with you all; well done!

Battiata Realty did a great job on my short sale. I had a loan through CalHFA and everyone told me horror stories about it will take at least a year to do a short sale and that they except very few. Matt assured me that within 6-9 months he could have my short sale complete. He and his team delivered on Nov 14, 2012 they finalized the Short Sale at 8 months. They were always professional and quick to respond and keep you up to date on the status of the property. I would recommend them any day.
