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

I was referred to Matt by a close friend who had recently bought a home in Escondido. From the very beggining Matt was always able to work with all my needs. He was extremely supportive and helpful at every turn. He is very knowledgeable and helped me every step of the way. He made the entire buying process as easy and smooth as buying a home can be and I plan on referring him to everyone who is looking for a realtor.

Bought a home in 2015 in Otay Ranch, Chula Vista, CA 91913.

As newlyweds, my wife and I were in the market for a house when we found out we were expecting a baby on the way. We reached out to Matt based on his highly rated profile, years of experience, and history of sold properties Zillow and every online outlet he is featured in. As first time home buyers we had no clue what to expect when setting foot in his office. Matt held our hands every step of the way in buying a home. He showed us 2 homes we saw on Zillow that met our criteria. We made an offer on the first home we visited (which was rare for him). When the seller accepted it was the smoothest process any first time home buyer could ever ask for. Matt kept us in the loop through daily phone calls, emails, and text messages. If we had any questions he was always there at our beck and call. He lived up to the terms he taught us, "fiduciary duty" for our entire home buying process. My wife and I would highly recommend Matt to anyone looking for a realtor that shows high quality professionalism and great knowledge in the real estate business.  More Less

Sold a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $400K in Morena, San Diego, CA.

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.  More Less

Mike, Thank you for entrusting me to guide you through the process; it was a pleasure to work with you. I am glad we were able to get the highest sales price for your floor plan in a long time! Best Regards, --Matt
