David O'brien's Review Highlights

5.0
Highly likely to recommend
David and Deirdre are the best! Quickly, we learned that buying a house involves an enormous amount of decision-making. By far the most important decision we made was working with the O'Briens. We were trying to find our first house with more questions than answers and struggling to navigate the bay area real estate market. Then we met David and Deirdre. They were there for us every step of the way and were able to answer any questions we had. We were thoroughly impressed with their knowledge of houses, their attention to detail and their command of the market. They listened to all our concerns and wants. In the end they didn't just find us a house - they found us our home. We are grateful for everything they did for us. We not only found David and Deirdre to be great agents, but just as important, we found them to be great people

David O'Brien and his wife Deirdre did an excellent job in facilitating and handling a complex and difficult Real Estate transaction. They were able to represent multiple sellers of a property and have a strong sense of strategic sales, marketing, staging properties and excellent closing skills. Moreover, after an extensive and grueling process these agents were able to provide excellent service to their clients and generating the best price point. Lastly, David O' Brien is a very hands-on Realtor with comprehensive knowledge of the local Real Estate market and diligent in dealing with all phases of the transaction. -

Paul B. bought a home in San Anselmo

David & Deirdre were excellent. Upon our first meeting with them, we believed they could be trusted, we were right. Growing up in Marin, Deirdre had fist hand experience of all the cities/towns we were considering. This trusting knowledge helped us through the process of the all important decision on location. David was professional from the start, his technical expertise in the real estate arena was impressive. More importantly, the thorough follow through necessary in dealing with our challenging transaction built the trust we needed through this month long process. My wife and I highly recommend David and Deirdre O'Brien

Jessie W. sold a home in Lagunitas

I am delighted to recommend The O'Brien's and want to say emphatically that you can't go wrong by choosing them. Despite being very busy (which we saw as a good sign) David and Deirdre agreed to be our listing agents even though it was a somewhat difficult situation. We decided to sell, after only a year of owning it, an unusual and complex property in a challenging market. We were scared of being trapped there or losing a great deal of money, especially because of how soon the house was being sold after we purchased it. David and Deirdre had an unwavering, sincere optimism about our prospects from the very beginning. We worked with an agent in buying the house the previous year who was condescending, self-interested and seemed to care more about the sale going through and than our own needs. David and Deirdre could not have been more different. They paid close attention to what we were needing in a relationship and honored it every step of the way. These two things earned my trust.

Kate S. bought a home in San Rafael

We are so grateful to Deirdre and David for helping us find our dream home. From the start, Deirdre asked lots of questions to really understand what we were looking for and tirelessly worked to find options both on and off the market in the neighborhood we were interested in. She was clearly well-connected with other agents and found some great options. We were pretty picky about what we were looking for and she was very respectful of that. She ultimately found our dream home before it hit the market, and Deirdre and David helped us negotiate a great price. We were able to move quickly, but as first time home-buyers we felt well-educated on the process and how to evaluate the market and the value of the property. We felt supported throughout the closing process and really appreciated their help coordinating inspections to ensure everything was in good shape with the house. Team O'Brien was truly wonderful and we would recommend them without reservation
