About Amber O'Brien

You loathe typical real estate agent bios. Don’t worry, I do too. They’re like cardboard….stiff, bland and identical to every other bio out there. Instead of boasting ad nauseum about awards and accomplishments you’re not interested in, I’m taking the novel approach of actually giving you what you want…real answers to questions you’re probably wondering right now.

Will you return my calls, texts and emails?

Yes. Without question. I realize this is one of the major frustrations the general public has with dealing with agents. I get dozens of calls and emails daily, and I work hard to reply as quick as possible.

I’ve met many Realtors who are jerks. Are you?

Depends on who you ask. If you ask certain agents who have stood between my clients and their real estate goals, they’ll probably say, “yes.” A handful of people think I leave golden footprints in the sand. Those are the two extremes, and most people’s opinion falls somewhere in the middle. Here’s what I can tell you: I’m honest and candid. I take pride in being approachable and friendly. And if you need a quick real estate brain, or a strong dose of honesty, you’re in the right place. Loyalty to family, clients and friends is one of my core values. Want to really find out if I’m a jerk? Mess with one of those people.

Do you have experience doing exactly what I need?

I guess I could show you my credentials, awards and provide you with the number of transactions I have in the books....but what does that data actually tell you? NOTHING. Honestly, until you tell me what you need, there is no way of really knowing. These are some “strong suits” of mine: First Time Home Buying, Foreclosures (HUD included), New Construction, VA & USDA home loans, and Relocations. Additionally I have a long list of connections and resources to aid you in the selling and buying process. Fact of the matter is, if I can't help you, I can definitely find someone that can.

What kind of work are you really good at?

On a personal level, I’m pretty good at cooking (I make a mean lasagna!), and I’m pretty funny. So, there’s a good chance you’ll be laughing. Who doesn’t love to laugh?? On a professional level, here are the skill-sets that I’ve developed over the years: Listening, Problem-Solving, Honesty, Responsibility, Resourcefulness, Patience, Empathy and Creativity.
