Paul O’Brien's Bio
Paul O’Brien’s Clients Are Some Of The Most Knowledgeable Home Buyers And Sellers
Before Paul O’Brien became a licensed Sales Associate in 2009, he had positions that helped him refine his skills in customer service, marketing, time management, dispute resolution, and problem solving. But the confines and restrictions of a corporate job didn’t fit with his ambition and drive. Paul prefers being able to rely on his own efforts and having the freedom to give his clients the service he thinks they deserve.
Paul O’Brien has also made education a priority in his real estate career by earning his Graduate Realtor Institute (GRI) designation, which is one of the industry’s most prestigious designations and earning his Florida Broker’s license. Most recently, he earned his Accredited Buyer’s Representative (ABR®) designation and Sellers Representative Specialist (SRS).
Paul O’Brien’s clients are some of the happiest and most knowledgeable home buyers and sellers in Central Florida. That’s because his first priority when meeting a client is to find out how he can best help them. Instead of just waiting for his turn to talk, he actively listens. The insight he gains helps him to more accurately address their wants and needs. Next he gives them the information they need to move through the process of buying or selling a home with the least possible stress or uncertainty. Paul’s belief is that knowledge of today’s market leads to good decisions. When clients know what to expect at each step along the way, it makes the transaction more enjoyable for everyone.
When not assisting buyers or sellers, you can find Paul cheering on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, cooking and grilling, and playing with his Mini Australian Shepherd!

From the first time I spoke with him on the phone, he has been understanding of our needs and always available for questions. We had a short time to look at properties, but he used that time to our best advantage. The home we purchased is perfect for our needs and we owe a debt of gratitude to Paul for helping us find it. We appreciate his friendliness very much. We would definitely recommend him as a realtor. Thank you!

From Customer Shuko Nielson -- May 2014
I am very thankful to Paul O’Brien for finding a tenant for my house in Orlando. Prior to him, somebody else of a different company was trying, and it was taking more than three months. Not that she was idle or anything, but it was just not happening. I called Paul to give another try. Immediately he developed a strategy and gave me realistic advice. He inspected my house thoroughly and took care of what needed to be done. In a week or so I was able to sign a rental contract. He is easy to communicate and quick to act. I highly recommend Paul to anyone.

From Customer Alex Vestal -- Apr 2014
Very knowledgeable about the downtown area. Realtor came to initial meeting prepared and clearly did their homework on the area. Other realtors weren’t as prepared or lacked the knowledge of the area. Very hard working, helped with home staging which really helped. I would definitely recommend Metro City.
