Matias Baker Masucci SRES®
A personable approach to real estate and the belief that in a successful transaction everyone comes out a winner are the cornerstone of my business. Born and raised in Italy, I have called Los Angeles home for the past twenty years. My real estate journey began as a child helping my father restore a dilapidated seventeenth-century country estate to its original glory. From a foundation built on years of experience in multi-family property management and working with real estate investors, I transitioned into sales. After successfully carving a niche for myself in the marketplace, I joined forces with the Sanborn Team to be of service to a wider spectrum of clients. Whether you are buying or selling your first home, or are a seasoned real estate investor, by working with me you can count on the utmost care and competence.
