MY MISSION STATEMENT

I am committed to providing you with exceptional service through all facets of your real estate transaction. I will competently and compassionately guide you through the real estate process, providing extensive market knowledge, aggressive marketing strategies, negotiating expertise and honest advice to ensure your understanding every step of the transaction.

SERVICES FOR BUYERSYour home purchase is the largest and most complex financial decision of your life. It is very important to have a knowledgeable expert firmly in your corner during this process. As a results-oriented buyer's agent, I have developed a GUARANTEED BUYERS PROGRAM specifically designed to take the uncertainty and stress out of your home buying process.

As my GUARANTEE to you, I will:

Explain all steps involved in the home buying process, the terms used, and all players involved. I will also help you get pre-approved for a loan if you are not pre-approved already.

Create an open dialogue to learn about your home style preference, your lifestyle, your price range and your preferred neighborhoods. With my knowledge of the greater Seattle market, I will save you time by quickly narrowing your search to neighborhoods and homes that fit your criteria.

Use the Northwest Multiple Listing Service (NWMLS) to find homes that meet your needs, preview these properties on my own, show you "the best of the best" and help you determine the pros and cons of each home.

Employ my tact and negotiation skills to guide you through the purchase once we find the "home of your dreams". I promise to negotiate aggressively for the best price and terms possible.

Create a "closing timeline" to monitor the various actions and deadlines leading to the successful close of your transaction. 

Exhibit the highest standards of dedication, integrity and professionalism throughout every phase of the transaction. My goal is to exceed your expectations so you would never think twice about referring me to your friends and loved ones!

      Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $400K in Shoreline, WA.
      Given the fact that we were buying a house in the Seattle area while living outside of Washington, DC, John was very helpful and supportive from afar. When we did come out to do some house-hunting, John had a full slate of houses for us to see. We looked at about 40 properties in 2 days, which was just what we were hoping for--we wanted to maximize our time and see as many neighborhoods and properties as possible. He was totally easy-going if we pulled up to a property and knew from the curb appeal (or lack thereof) that it wasn't for us. He was very thorough in answering all of our questions, and walked us through the entire process. Including our counter offers after a home inspection revealed some foundation issues that we wanted corrected. He's great at what he does!  MoreLess

      Bought a Single Family home in 2013 in Northgate, Seattle, WA.
      John was a pleasure to work with! We 've just moved into our new home one month ago and have had time to reflect on our experiences of purchasing a home. We appreciated the time John took to keep on top of all the crazy details and negotiations that come with buying a property from a bank. He really made the whole process smooth for us. He was also very frank and never tried to sugar coat anything. Thank you John!  MoreLess

      Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $525K in Wedgwood, Seattle, WA.
      John O'Brien recently helped us sell our home in Wedgwood, and he was an absolute pleasure to work with. He has a deep knowledge of the market, he is great at organizing and distilling data, and he was able to help us price our home exactly where it needed to be given the conditions. John also has a great eye, and he was able to help us identify and prioritize the work we needed to complete prior to putting our home up for sale. His estimates were spot on, and he did not recommend anything that didn’t get us a clear return on investment. On top of all that, John was very personable, always available, and he made showing and selling our home quick and painless. I would highly recommend his services to anyone looking to sell their home… especially in the northeast Seattle area.  MoreLess
