Their willingness to stay within our price range was so very much appreciated. They offered great suggestions and kept us well informed as to what was happening during all facets of the buying/selling process.

"I found the O'Brien Group to be very personable (like an awesome friend) who looked after my best interests. When I needed extra support, i.e.: Lawyers Notary & Inspector, they were given at a moment’s notice."
"As first time home buyers, working with The O’Brien Group was a wonderful experience. They were very helpful, informative and friendly. It is a pleasure working with people who takes such pride and joy in their work."
"Sheila and Ash are true professionals: ethical, knowledgeable and thorough. We were so pleased with their service on our first purchase, that we used them for a second purchase in another community. For each purchase, we were very particular and needed to see a lot of properties before we made our decision, yet they were very patient and made sure we didn't settle for something that we were less than 100% sure about. They took the time to find out what we wanted, didn't pressure us to buy, and were fantastic at getting additional information we needed. They provided solid advice on the pros and cons of each property we considered. We would highly recommend them to anyone wanting to purchase a property. "

"I have used Sheila and her team on all of my listings over the past 15 years and I have recommended her to my family and friends. She is very professional, knowledgeable, personable and has extensive knowledge about the market. I would highly recommend her as she far exceeds expectations. The best part about Sheila and her team is that once the purchase/sale has been completed you do not drop off her radar. She consistently stays in touch with very informative newsletters and client appreciation events that she holds regularly."
Sheila, Ashley, and Jessica were amazingly supportive and felt like friends from the beginning... Super supportive and on the ball- able to answer any and all questions. Unique ability to follow through after their sale and ensure we were happy and felt cared for. Thank you again.
We have worked with Sheila O'Brien and the O'Brien group since 2007 when we purchased our first Kitsilano home.
Since then we have completed several real estate transactions with Sheila and her team's assistance.
The professionalism and dedication displayed by all members of the team have made every aspect of our relationship outstanding.
I am certain Sheila has ensured we were getting the best price, both on buying and selling our properties, which has ensured we have realized real equity gains throughout these interesting times.
I highly recommend Sheila and the team to my family, friends and even complete strangers.
I would not hesitate to have the O'Brien Group represent me on any real estate matter.
This is the Gold Standard of realtors, and the benchmark others should be aspiring to become.
