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 Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $300K in Morena, San Diego, CA.

Hi All, Just had to let everyone know our condo just closed escrow and they have the keys and WE HAVE THE MONEY!! Just about two months from start to finish. I wasn't looking forward to go through all this - you hear such horror stories - but we were amazed at how easy Matt made the whole process. We did the first walk through with Matt where he made suggestions as to what changes would make the place sell faster and for more money. Matt even went with us to choose paint colors, fixtures, etc. He knew what the buyers were looking for., we didn't. Next Matt introduced us to Julio. He has a conpany that does home repairs. He was a gem - the workmanship was great and he did things on time and on budget. The next step was to bring in a stager (at Matt's cost) who made the condo "shine".. Then it was the photographer's turn to make sure the looked it's very best for the flyers and on line pictures. The first open house was on a Sunday and we accepted an offer the following Friday. The paperwork was what I was dreading most. But again Matt was there to hand hold us through the entire process. Every few days he would call or stop by to let us know how things were going. We hve another condo and Ii'll bet you can guess who we'll call when we get ready to sell it. If you have questions or need help with any real estate problems give Matt O'Brien a call. I'm sure you will have jusst as great a time working with him as we did. Good luck and contact us if we can answer any questions , Margo and Chuck  More Less

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $500K in El Cajon, CA.

Matt came highly recommended to us. He did a wonderful job with the sale of our house. The process was smooth, because he insured the little details were done right. His use of professional stagers and photographer insured maximum exposure for our house. It sold within 2 days of being listed for above our asking price. I would not hesitate to recommend him to my friends and family  More Less

Bought a Townhouse home in 2014 for approximately $400K in Morena, San Diego, CA.

Matt O'Brien did a tremendous job helping us acquire a condo at Friars Village. We were actually just out looking for rentals for our USD student daughter. We came across Matt's name on several sale listings. We soon realized that buying a condo in the USD area was the best investment. Matt showed us everything in our range and helped us negotiate the best deal. The process took patience due to the sellers issues. All throughout, Matt kept us informed and we purchased the condo with no stress. We would use Matt's expertise again in a heartbeat.  More Less
