About Matt O'Brien - My Client-First Philosophy

There are many qualities and skills that go into being an excellent real estate professional - integrity, in-depth community and market knowledge, marketing savvy, effective negotiation skills and a high-quality professional network, all of which are hallmarks of how I work.

That said, in my experience as a San Diego real estate professional, I've also found that providing the very best service is essentially about putting my clients first. This means keeping myself accessible, being a good listener as well as a good communicator, and responding quickly to your needs.

This "client first" philosophy has always been my approach and it requires me to continually improve my skills and ways of doing business. In addition, I've found that the latest technologies are enabling me to do everything I've always done, only much more quickly and efficiently. They've also helped me to extend the range of services I provide to my clients.

So when you decide that you'd like to buy or sell a home in the San Diego areas, please contact me.

Ratings & Reviews

Matt was fantastic from our first conversation until closing, earning every one of those honest five-star ratings above. My selling a condo in San Diego while residing in New York could have presented innumerable headaches, but Matt exceeded my every expectation and made the entire process – from effectively acting as a consultant general contractor for needed renovations, to staging, and shrewd price/terms negotiation – a breeze on my end. He was incredibly communicative and took the initiative on errands I wouldn't have felt comfortable asking of a close friend or family member. Matt was recommended to me as the go-to expert for the Friars Village condo complex, and proved that solidly. I can't recommend him strongly enough.

Sold a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $325K in Morena, San Diego, CA.

I currently live in Northern California & wanted to sell my San Diego condo I remembered a conversation with Matt from earlier and called him up. I was a bit hesitant of going through the whole procedure remotely. I thought I would need to make a couple of trip or two But Matt was SO professional, helpful and transparent, not once did I feel the need to make a trip to San Diego. He had an excellent system of getting document signatures online. He was very responsive to calls and emails. He is aware of the market situation. He had a great selling strategy which paid of very well : We got offers the very next day of listing ! I wouldn’t hesistate to use his services again and recommmend him in a heartbeat ! Look no further.  More Less

Bought a Condo home in 2015 for approximately $200K in San Carlos, San Diego, CA.

I rarely give 5-star reviews but Matt O'Brien is a fine human being and a superb real estate professional. He is an All Ways kind of professional: always available, always on time, always answers questions clearly, always has client's best interest in mind, always on top of documentation, and always in integrity. Matt has a way of keeping a stressful process calm, forward moving, and in perspective. He always delivered what he promised; he referred good vendors and services; and when he didn't know the answer to something he'd inquire and get back to me. He more than once went to bat for me yet always in a way that was respectful towards others. I recommend Matt O'Brien wholeheartedly.  More Less
