Paula was everything we could hope for in an agent. We met two years ago while here on vacation. Saw 5 houses — Just kicking tires. A year ago we met again and she spent more time with us, showed us many homes in different areas, and helped us pick a general area and set us up to receive emails on properties in that area. By the time we returned in February of this year, we were well informed about the specific neighborhoods and their price ranges. Paula was also well informed by then about our preferences and priorities. We looked at several, made an offer on one that we missed out on, and then she told us about a new listing in her office that she thought might fit us perfectly . . . And she was right. We made an offer the first day and within 24 hours had it under contract. Never felt pressured. Always felt she had our best interests at heart and was taking a long term view with us. We have just closed and are beginning to furnish it. Love Tucson, and really appreciate the service from Paula Puls and the Brenda O’Brien Team at Long Realty.
What People Say
Brenda did a fine job helping me sell my house in a difficult market. Starting with suggesting improvements to increase the appeal of a 1980s Santa Fe-style house, finding a contractor to do the work, preparing a gorgeous brochure showcasing the house, and bringing the sale to a successful closing despite economic turmoil and COVID19, I was confident the project was in the hands of a competent, experience expert. Brenda did an outstanding job of helping me bring my house to market and getting it sold in a very challenging environment. Kudos to Brenda!
Brenda is a Star!! We decided to sell our home in Oro Valley several weeks after having to Medivac back to Canada for health reasons. The situation precluded our being able to return to Arizona, so the entire selling process had to be accomplished remotely. Brenda did a brilliant job of advertising/marketing our home, and always was so friendly, efficient, positive and accommodating, helping us with many details, large and small — what could have been an arduous process turned out to be seamless. We are so pleased to know Brenda, and will be forever grateful for all she did for us in selling our home.
We’ve purchased and sold many properties and experienced the professional way you conduct your business — even though we weren’t able to complete an intended deal, you are by far the very best in every way that we’ve ever experienced. Thank you for your contact — we try to recommend you whenever possible. All our best with your well-earned and deserved successes.
We have had the opportunity to work with Brenda O’Brien over a number of years always with positive results. Our most recent experience was over the top closing on the sale of a vacant lot amidst a global pandemic. If ever we need the services of a real estate agent in the future she would be the person we would call.
My agent, Brenda O’Brien, and her team were excellent. In my 30-year career in commercial real estate I have worked with many real estate agents and brokers, so I can say with confidence that Brenda and her team were great. They keep you informed, are timely in response, and have a thorough knowledge of the marketplace. It was a pleasure working Brenda and Long Realty.
I am writing concerning my experience with Brenda O’Brien. The two most memorable aspects during the time my home was listed with her are: that she always, without fail got back to me immediately. And, more uncommon, she most often answered her phone herself. What a surprise in these times! And, due to her marketing skills, my home sold within a short period of time. My home had been listed by two other realtors, but sold within two months, and at the full listing price! This, I believe was due to her outstanding knowledge, skill and perception of just the right marketing techniques. Her brochure was absolutely beautiful. I would recommend her and Michael to anyone needing a Realtor.
Brenda is a very likable and lovely person to begin with so working with her was always a pleasant and courteous experience. She kept in touch through the ups and downs of selling our home in a unique market and we appreciated her input and perspective. She worked hard for us and we truly appreciated her positive professional and personal attitudes in this sometimes stressful and difficult process. I would highly recommend Brenda to anyone who needs an ethical realtor who does a great job for her clients.
Brenda O’Brien is a smart, responsible and professional realtor. She listens to the wants and needs of her clients, and in turn gives important ideas, attention and advice to achieve those goals. She is very personable, and pays close attention to details. Brenda was always available and used her “treasure trove” of top-of-the-line suppliers, movers, landscapers, tree trimmers, furniture “stagers”, painters, window washers, photographers and full home cleaners. She even climbed into our small water feature to give it a good scrub! Brenda proposed a high asking price, and said we should not leave anything “on the table.” We didn’t….in fact we had three asking price offers, and sold in five days! Thank you, Brenda…..another job WELL-DONE! Thank you very much.
As a real estate professional myself, I highly recommend Brenda and Michael for your next real estate transaction. They were excellent to work with and were extremely helpful in facilitating painting, carpet installation, cleaning etc for us as we are out of state sellers.
