What People Say

Jane Slosser, Home Seller

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.


 Judy Robbins, Home Seller 

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.


Alice  Bostrom, Home Seller

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.

Kelly Robertson, Home Seller

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.

Alan & Helen Dankwerth, Home Sellers

Brenda and Michael were great to work with. They kept us informed and to a degree, “held our hand”. There was nothing that “fell through the cracks”.  I can’t imagine that there is any team in the greater Tucson area that could top their professional and “caring” approach to a transaction.

Carolyn Cook & Lynn Jr. Cook, Home Sellers

5 stars!!! Because we could not be in Tucson for the house sale, we knew our daughter would do the best for us as regards to an agent. She did indeed. Even though Lynn & I did not meet Brenda O’Brien face to face, my phone contacts with her was positive in every way. Not only does she have a lovely personality, but that quality combined with her expertise and doing an excellent job for us was important and appreciated. Thank you!

Ronald Plantz, Home Seller

We used Long Realty and the Brenda O’Brien team to find our home when we moved to Oro Valley. That experience went so well we returned to them when it was necessary to list our home for sale. Brenda and Michael again turned one of life’s most stressful experiences into what ended up for me being one of life’s most successful. Their strategy in marketing from pricing to staging to working with interested buyers to close the deal demonstrated the benefits of listing with proven successful agents. I hope to return to Oro Valley some day and when I do my first step will be to reach out to the Brenda O’Brien team.

Greg – Home Buyer

It’s been just over a month since we closed escrow on our new home. I did want to take a minute to thank you again the fantastic job that you and your team did for our family. I think it warrants special consideration due to my background. I have been a manager for a Mortgage Banking Company for nearly 20 years, and have personally closed nearly 4000 real estate transactions. More than anyone, I know what is really “above and beyond”. I can honestly say that in my business I have dealt with many, many different Realtors, and you and your team rank among the best I have ever seen.

Gary & Joy Roberts, Home Sellers

Brenda O’Brien Team had more showings in 2 weeks than our previous realtor had in over 2 months! “Everything” they did was absolutely first class. We had a contract for purchase in hand in 2 weeks! SOLD! Thanks Brenda!

Leon & Annette Dixon, Home Sellers

We were very Blessed and Happy with Long Realty. We were updated at all times and able to reach Michael Lynch when there were questions. Michael Lynch and Long Realty are # 1.
