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.

Sold a Condo home in 2014 for approximately $250K in San Carlos, San Diego, CA.

With many changes in my life taking place at one time, I needed to sell my condo in San Carlos fairly quickly. Matt was very understanding and helpful in guiding me through the process of selling my property.

Matt made a few suggestions about what I could do to update and improve the property and worked with me to stage my condo. He also booked a professional photographer to make my place look its best online and on fliers.

His knowledge of the real estate market and his professional expertise were invaluable determining a price and strategy to sell my property quickly.

Matt kept in touch and updated me through every step. At times we spoke several times a day. He was always available to me and returned my emails, texts and phone calls promptly.

Matt was always honest, helpful, and trustworthy throughout the whole selling process and his attention to detail is extraordinary. He made the experience as stress free as possible and at times it was actually pretty fun. Matt’s a great guy. I would highly recommend him to any of my family or friends.

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $425K in Escondido, CA.

Matt was amazing! My wife and I were worried about being able to obtain a mortgage loan and when we first approached Matt we explained our financial situation to him and our worries. He got us together with a awesome mortgage broker named Renzo Marzano who runs MAR Financial who was able to get us a very good loan rate.

Matt was always honest, helpful, and trustworthy throughout the whole home buying process. It was very obvious from the beginning that he was not trying to rush us into making a quick purchase to get his payday, and patiently helped us find the house that was perfect for us. Matt did a wonderful job explaining everything to us through out the whole process, and was very helpful and straight forward in the negotiation process.

He also laughed at all my jokes! I will be inviting Matt to our first pool party BBQ at our new home because I honestly feel I made a friend!

Sold a home in 2014.

I just wanted to share our recent experience with Matt O’Brien as our realtor. We live in Utah and we often received fliers in the mail from realtors. When we got ready to sell our San Diego property, we contacted several of them, including Matt. We were most impressed by his friendly but professional manner instead of the sales pitch attitude. Our home was in need of some renovation and repair, but Matt was extremely helpful in this area. He shared his opinions of what we might get if we sold it as-is with no repairs and what we might get if we did some repairs. I was weary that we could actually get that much more, but we went forward with alterations. He put us in contact with builders in the area that he had worked with successfully in the past and was also very helpful in guiding us as to what would look good and sell well in this type of unit. During the remodel, he was above and beyond in his help. He worked with the builder so things ran smoothly, and kept us informed as to the progress. He did whatever was necessary, from choosing and purchasing materials to working with the HOA. Because of his help, the long-distance project went much smoother than we had ever expected. When it came to selling the property, he kept in contact with us as to any activity. With his help, we sold the property at a fair price in a very short time and walked away with more money. (He actually told me it was the highest price for our floor plan in over 2 years!) Again, with the distance involved, he made the experience very pleasant. We were not required to make any trips to SD to accomplish the sale. The paperwork was all in order, and we had our funding in a timely manner. We’ve had the opportunity to work with many realtors in the past several years and Matt O’Brien has gone way above and beyond what we would have ever imagined and this has been by far our best experience. I actually asked him if he could move to Utah and help with real estate here. You owe it to yourself to at least give him a call and see for yourself. --Gary and Becky Colf  More Less
