Bought a home in 2014.
He is very professional, knows very well about the market, the process, the policies. helped me a lot in finding the home I wanted in a very hot market, in reducing the home price, in finalizing the whole long process with unexpected problems of purchase of my first home. (my tax return service made a very unprofessional mistake in filling my previous tax return, so I was stuck in loan application phase).

Thanks a lot, David~

Bought a home in 2014.
"I would give David 6 or even a 10 stars on the 5-star scale above if I could...he was simply amazing. He was incredibly responsive to our questions/concerns and made himself available above and beyond the call of duty on multiple occaisions. My wife and I both felt he was really "on our team" and gave us crucial advice and guidance at all the critical points in this process. We were really stressed out about buying a house in Marin before we met him (had worked with another agency/realtor) and he just made it all seem so much more manageable. Again, I really can't say enough about how impressed we were - we will definitely recommend him again and again to friends looking to buy in Marin. Thank you David!!"

David was indispensable in preparing my home for sale. His negotiation and communication skills are second to none. He is kind, respectful, worldly, and a consummate professional. I would use David again in a heartbeat.

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $650K in Novato, CA.
David is a professional realtor through and through. He knows the market in Marin and the surrounding communities. He provided us fantastic service both times we asked him to be our realtor. He is patient, honest, responsive and reliable. The thing about David that impressed me the most is that he clearly understood what we were searching for and he showed us some great properties/opportunities that fit what we had in mind. With David's help we've made two great investments. We couldn't be happier and will definitely work with David again in the future.

Listed, but didn't sell my Single Family home in 2014 in San Rafael, CA.
Well I have to say he jumps in and makes things happen. Steps I thought would take a couple of days happened overnight to set up the sale that took just 4 days to get a full price offer. My only reservation as a seller is to think that David and I underpriced the listing at the onset, a fault I equally share. David is unbelievably responsive to phone and email notes. He is a detail kind of guy who eats forms and regulations for breakfast...actually a good thing in the long haul as you really need to get things right. If you want an efficient RE guy David is the guy.

Two most recent sales exact model matches sold for $181,000 on July 28th 2014 and $202,000 on March 5th 2014 I actually sold his property on August 6, 2014 for $210,000 $5,000 over list price, all cash, 10 day close, and no inspection contingencies. I did this with no comparable sales supporting such a high price. Good negotiating!!

Sold a home in 2013.
David assisted us through a long and arduous sales process. He was extremely helpful, thoroughly explaining all aspects of the process, and very responsive and diligent with paperwork and follow-up.

The fact that we were in different part of the country than where our house was added some challenges to the sale, but David made it as smooth as possible. He wound up going above and beyond to take care of things we simply could not, as we weren't physically there to do so.

Not only is David great at his job, he is a kind person that sincerely wants to help, which makes it very easy to work with him. I would highly recommend David's services.

Sold a Single Family home in 2013 in Sausalito, CA.
David has worked with our company for the last three years; he was hired to contact delinquent borrowers and help them list their home for a short sale or help them with a deed in lieu of foreclosure. David successfully negotiated and closed the sale and also negotiated a settlement with the second. David was very knowledgable of the market conditions and our clients short sale requirements. He was timely and always professional in dealing with our company and the client. I would highly recommend David for anyone looking for an honest, hard working and knowledgable agent.

Sold a home in 2014.
David is very professional and easy to work with. Due to multiple issues on my end it was a long process and David was there "hands on" helping the whole way through. The way this was managed I definitely recommend him! He sold our multi-unit SF property for well above asking.

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $650K in San Rafael, CA.
David was a delight to work with! He knew what needed to be done to present my parents' home in the best possible way while still acknowledging the flaws of a 60 year old home. He helped me every step of the way, clearly explaining anything that was unfamiliar. He has a Rolodex of service providers that are fast and affordable to help with any work that needed to be done before the house was ready to list. He also understood that selling the home I grew up in involved a mixture of emotions and was sympathetic while also gently prodding me when needed to get through it all. He really understands the pricing nuances in different parts of Marin County and he had very well thought out suggestions for how to respond to buyers offers. He was very reassuring through the whole negotiation process. I would definitely recommend David O’Brien to anyone looking for an agent who will really work with them.

Sold a Single Family home in 2013 in Richmond, CA.
David handled the entire sales process with a high degree of expertise and the right doses of patience and understanding. He took the time to fully appreciate my needs and requirements as a seller, and while respecting my concerns and questions he made sure we didn't stray from the path.

I would highly recommend David to others in the home buying/selling market.
