Showed home in 2014 in Clayton, CA.
Mr Obrien provided prompt and apropriate listings for us to review in and around the Clayton, CA area. We have not yet sold our home so we were just shopping. When we are closer to our home sale we will definitely shop with Michael again. He appears to be very knwledgable about the area.

Sold a home in 2013.
Simply put 5 stars all the way. After a death in the family that included a reverse mortgage, we were responsible for the estate. We called Kim Galindo for advise and by the days end we had a plan. With the help of the whole O'Brien team, we found a buyer that fit our needs for the time frame. With the knowledge and experience of Kim,Chris & the O'Brien Real Estate team, they negotiated for a sale that was more than expected and very fair for both parties. With O'Brien it's like having your family by your side. We could not have done it with out the team..... Highly recommended!! Jim & Teresa Bloom

Bought a home in 2013.
We purchased our new home in February of this year with the help of O'Brien Real Estate. Chris O'Brien was always available and on top of things through the entire process which helped put us at ease in an unpredictable housing market. Jill Roach was also very helpful in making sure our paperwork was in order. The use of their moving truck was an added bonus. We would definitely recommend the team at O'Brien.

Listed, but didn't sell my Single Family home in 2012 in Concord, CA.
My wife and I worked with Jill Roach, a member of the O'Brien Realty Team. She worked tirelessly to find a buyer and negotiate a short sale for our home in Concord. We also met several of her co-workers during that time and they were all great! Through no fault of Jill's the bank stopped negotiating in good faith and the sale fell through. Still she offered us valuable advice and direction in the aftermath. That advice proved most valuable to us. Highly recommend Jill and the whole O'Brien Team!

Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $700K in Concord, CA.
Chris O'Brien helped us find our new home in 2012. It was a time when housing inventory was low and you had to be quick to see a house and fast to make the offer. We had just moved back to the Bay Area and were living in an apartment while searching for a house. It was a very stressful time for our family. Working with Chris was super. He understood our immediate desire to be in a home but also took the time to zero in on what would make us happy. He helped us to not just jump at any house that came along and to be ready to get the deal done when the right one did. We couldn't be happier in our new home! Thanks Chris!

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $450K in Concord, CA.
Best real estate team in the area bar none. Worked with Chris on selling or house in 2009. He had our house sold quickly and smoothly while we were going through a pretty rough patch. Even assisted us with rental property. Three years later were ready to try again and went right back to Obrien RE. We are now living in a beautiful home in a very nice area. I really can't say enough about them. Simply the best.

Bought a home in 2012.
We actually worked with Michael's brother, Chris O'Brien. Chris helped us buy a home in Walnut Creek in 2012. He excelled at identifying homes that met our needs, preparing and helping us negotiate our offer, and handling all of the follow-through details with inspectors and so on. He's responsive, and definitely understands the art of navigating the home buying process. Interestingly enough, even the sellers had nice things to say about him...no doubt expressed to them by their agent.

More important, O'Brien Real Estate won't approach you with a fancy delivery. They are regular people, who happen to do their job well. They'll even let you borrow their truck once you're ready to move!

Sold a Single Family home in 2011 for approximately $225K in Concord, CA.
I worked with Kim Galindo and the O'Brien real estate team for the Short Sale of my home in Concord starting in June of 2011.

My entire experience was amazing - Kim and her crew took what could have been quite traumatic - losing my home - and turned it into an efficient, compassionate and expedient experience.

It only took 4 months to sell my home - unheard of for a Short Sale. They guided me through every step of the way. They treated me like any client who was buying or selling a home. They advised me on legal steps I should consider. They lent me their truck for moving my furniture. They made would could be a complicated and scary experience into something we could all be proud of.

It's hard to say I'm "proud" of Short Selling my home, but the reality is it was the right thing to do. Kim understood not only the legal side of a short sale, but the emotional side. She truly cares for her clients and truly became a friend during this trying time.

The burden of my upside down mortgage is over, and thanks to O'Brien Real Estate I was able to weather the storm with dignity and respect. I am tremendously pleased with their support and when I return to the real estate market (and I will!), I will surely call upon them again.

Thanks guys! Chris S.

Sold a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $400K in Concord, CA.
I actually worked with Kim Galindo, and it was the saving grace to our loss of our mother, selling her home and finding one for ourselves. If it wasn't for her we would not have known about the property we ended up with. Her knowledge and compromising skills really helped us with the sale, and her quick responses to all calls and emails were remarkable. We are using her again soon to help with the sale of an out of town property also!

What can I say about the truck, it was extremely handy, cleaning out our parents home of 45 years there was a lot to transport to hospice, and in my transition to my daughters place until our new home was ready, then even to the new home, it saved us time and money!!! Love them!!!

Sold a Single Family home in 2001 in Bay Point, CA.
Micheal O'Brien and his team have done outstanding work for us over the years ! We had a home we bought in Baypoint for 175k in 1998 then in 2001 he sold it for us for 350k !! At that time was an unheard of price. He is very good with people and we can't be happier with the service! Daniel Coflin, D.C.
