In our initial contact with Brenda she struck us as a very forthright, honest individual. She repeatedly stepped beyond what was called for in her efforts to assist us. Brenda proved herself very patient, considerate and forthcoming. She is outstanding in her field.
We consider the day we met Brenda an incredible stroke of luck! When we were ready to buy a house in Tucson, Brenda made finding the right property as easy as turning on our computer. She stayed on top of every detail of our transaction from offer to close and kept both sellers and buyers happy through the process. Since we were 1400 miles away the entire time, having the deal move so smoothly was a huge relief. Brenda is a terrific communicator and I have never dealt with a more professional real estate broker. We only wish she were licensed in Washington as well! We could use her services here too!
Brenda insured that everything went smoothly with our home purchase. It was remarkably hassle free especially given that this was a “long-distance” transaction. If I hear of anyone moving to the Tucson area, I will without hesitation have them contact Brenda O’Brien
Brenda has been really great to work with. Brenda’s quality of service is professional yet people friendly with compassion. She truly takes customer service to the highest level. Her service has been both very unique and special
Brenda made our home buying experience easy and hassle free. This was the best home buying experience we’ve ever had. We will use her services again.
Brenda provides that dynamic balance of incredible service and motivation with warmth, energy and understanding of your individual needs. Her years of experience as a Realtor are reflected in her success and passion for her work. Her personal energy and professional skills make her one of the best in her field. Nothing makes her happier than to see her clients total satisfaction with their new home
Brenda has been wonderful to work with in every way. She stays right on top of every detail and keeps things working smoothly. She is the best Realtor we ever had! We highly recommend her!!
We would unhesitatingly recommend Brenda’s services to others who are considering buying or selling a home. The entire process was accomplished in a most professional and pleasant manner. Because Brenda is so competent, the whole process seemed too good to be true!
We want to thank Brenda for the super service she rendered in the sale of our home. Brenda handled herself in a very professional way, with dedication, and always friendly
We were just blown away by Brenda’s total professionalism and generosity on our visit with her. We’ve never seen such thorough preparation and command of one’s profession as Brenda displayed and we have been around with many, many agents in the past.
We interviewed agents from three companies - Brenda was (is) head and shoulders better than the other two agents. I’ve had bad experience with real estate agents in the past. Brenda showed another kind of agent. She knew the property, anticipated our needs and was very professional.
Moving, whether cross country or across the street, is always a traumatic time for anyone. Brenda made this particular cross country move as pleasant and as easy as it could be. I would recommend her to anyone looking for a professional agent to assist them
Brenda and her sales team are knowledgeable, diligent and dedicated real estate professionals. The quality of service that Brenda and her team provided in finding the perfect home for us was top-notch. They love their work and it shows. Working with them has mattered a great deal
The Brenda O’Brien Team is experienced, knowledgeable and truly make the buying & selling a home in the Tucson area a delight. I have and will recommend and use Brenda for any real estate transaction in the future
As first time home sellers we relied heavily on Brenda’s expertise and in all ways she exceeded our expectations. I have already recommended Brenda to many of our friends. When we are ready to sell our next home, we plan on calling Brenda.
We have already begun recommending Brenda to other prospective buyers. Breezy, candid and direct, Brenda did her homework and truly represented our best interests. We found her to be personable, knowledgeable and professional.
We have never worked with a realtor who is so personable and professional. Brenda and her staff truly listened to what we wanted and helped us find it, even making the process fun! When presenting our offer, she proved she was the ultimate negotiator!
Brenda managed the sale of our rental property professionally and efficiently. Her extra effort and negotiating skills were instrumental in closing the transaction with our buyer. She was always in communication with us. We wouldn’t hesitate a moment to recommend Brenda to anyone wishing to sell their home.
Brenda is patient. If clients are nervous and are not familiar with the home buying and selling experience, she patiently walks them through the intimidating process. I ended the experience with feeling of peace.
The whole Experience with the Brenda O’Brien team was a pleasure with one upside surprise atop another. Thoroughness, timeliness and tenacity sum up what makes them a breed apart. As we searched for the right home for us, Brenda never wavered or displayed any frustration...always finding another “dream” home for us until we found the right one together.
It was truly a pleasure dealing with Brenda O’Brien during our recent purchase. She was a bundle of energy, enthusiasm and niceness. As a real estate agent myself, I knew we would buy a home from you – I was very comfortable with your professionalism and caring. Next we were truly amazed with your follow-up. We appreciated your assistance throughout the whole transaction and after. Brenda is definitely a dynamo and I will send you every referral possible —you made it happen.
Best real estate experience we ever had! We have, combined, probably had about 10 real estate “experiences” (buying and selling) in our lives. You are far and away, the most professional, competent, and just plain nice people either of us have ever worked with on real estate matters
Long Realty is the biggest real estate agency in Arizona. If you don’t believe it, just ask them to show you the figures! Sometimes the biggest isn’t always the best. Brenda convinced us that SHE is the Best of the Biggest! A friend referred Brenda to us and for that we’re very grateful! If it weren’t for Brenda, this deal would probably not have gone through!
Brenda O’Brien and her team did a great job even after the sale. Brenda and her “crew” do far more than any buyer can normally expect. Even after the sale is consummated.
Having Brenda handle the sale of our home made it a happy experience instead of a trial. She and her team handled the details with dispatch and clarity, always keeping us informed on developments. We recommend Brenda highly as a Realtor.
Exceptional service from a true professional, Brenda!
Exceptional service from a true professional, Brenda!
Over the course of thirty-odd years of buying homes we have dealt with a number of Realtors in both Canada and the U.S., and clearly Brenda and her team set the standard against which the rest must be measured. Not knowing anyone in Tucson, we sourced Brenda via the internet, where we were immediately impressed by her obvious Internet-saviness. From our first telephone call and first meeting, we found that Brenda is exactly as she presents herself; friendly, positive, energetic, and – very important in a top -flight realtor – an excellent listener. When we located the condo we wanted ( and it was very quickly) her support through the negotiating and closing period was terrific. She never “let go” of us until the deal was finished, all the snags were un-snagged, and we were actually there to take the keys. When she promised to do something, she ALWAYS delivered. She gave excellent advice during negotiations. We can’t say enough good thing about Brenda O’Brien. She’s the absolute best and a credit to Realtors
We couldn’t have had a better agent representing us. Brenda was open, honest, helpful and kept us informed and up to the minute on other comparable sales. We were confident we knew the market from her frequent postings.
Brenda did a fantastic job of putting together a deal for us in three days! We signed papers, left the state and escrow closed without a hitch, in 30 days. Even though we were out of state, everything was handled professionally, with great attention to detail and we never had to worry about a thing. Brenda was terrific!
Brenda & her team were wonderful to work with. Very professional and knowledgeable. Brenda was extremely helpful. She had great insight into the homes in our market range and her area of sale. I have already recommended friends to her. She came highly recommended from a dear friend who sells real estate in Minnesota. I said I wanted the best and she exceeded my expectations
If you are thinking about buying or selling a home, look no further than Brenda. She is truly wonderful. She continuously goes above and beyond the normal call of duty to give the absolute finest service available. Reflecting back on our transactions, we realize how awe-inspiring her accomplishments for us were.
It was a pleasure to deal with Pat and Brenda O’Brien in the recent purchase of our house in Tucson. They were recommended to us by a friend and we know why. Pat was extremely patient with us as we made multiple trips to Tucson narrowing down our search to the specific area we liked. He was a good coach - not a sales guy - and always made the most of our time together. Pat and Brenda are both real pro’s. We appreciated the depth of their support structure, their follow through and personal dedication to getting the job done for us.
We would like to express our sincere appreciation for the services of you and your team in the purchase of our new home. We were impressed with the quality of the Brenda O’Brien Team and Long Realty from the beginning, you definitely made the whole process run smoothly from start to finish. In the future, the Brenda O’Brien Team will always be our first choice when it comes to selling or purchasing our next home. Thank you again for the excellent service, we look forward to working with you in the future. Rest assured we will refer your services at every opportunity.
The services provided by Brenda, Pat and the rest of the team could not have been better. In addition to the valuable guidance they provided, they were always warm, personable, and caring. After the closing, they continued to be there to answer any questions we had, and to make our transition easier. We are impressed with the effort it took to provide such service and the genuineness of the people who rendered it.
It is hard to believe that almost a year ago Marcie and I met with you in the hope of relocating to Tucson and finding our “dream home”. From that very first day, we never doubted who you represented, which was with great comfort, considering our undertaking from the frozen tundra of the Northeast. We greatly appreciate the e-newsletters, digital postcards, and all of the “extra touches”. Thank you for making the stressful tasks of home building and buying a pleasurable experience. We wish you and your talented team much success in your Real Estate endeavors and would gladly (and highly) recommend your services.
We indeed enjoyed working with Brenda. She listened to our needs & desires. Then she and Pat did lots of homework, showed us examples of what we requested and found a house we really felt we could make a home. Every detail was done on time and Brenda’s personality makes me feel I can call about any question in the future.
Brenda is the Best! Efficient, patient and knowledgeable. A pleasure to work with
My wife and I cannot say enough about Brenda O’Brien and her “Team” regarding how smoothly they brought our real estate transaction in Tucson to fruition. We live in Michigan but have had a condo in Tucson for several years. We decided we wanted to sell the condo and purchase a home. Through Brenda’s expertise and diligence, (does she ever take time off!?), we were successful in selling our condo and buying a beautiful retirement dream home in Tucson. I was able to close on both properties within one hour at the same office with Brenda by my side - she made it happen! I don’t believe we have ever dealt with a more conscientious, professional. Brenda’s Team would be the only Realtor we’ll recommend.
Here we were in Nevada but with the constant help thru fax and telephone calls the O’Briens were the best. Pat found our dream home for us when we came out for a week to look. He made the negotiation and paperwork go smoothly, coordinating with the sale of our Nevada home so we could move right in here. If you are looking for the “best” go with the Brenda O’Brien Team. We have been in our new home for two months and everyday we just can’t believe we are in this beautiful home.
I had a short time frame to sell my home. A friend recommended Brenda and she came with a plan of action. Not only did she put my home on the market - she “marketed” my home. She did all she said she was going to do and more. I highly recommend her and her team.
We have bought and sold several homes over the years. A friend referred Brenda O’Brien to us. Of all the Realtors we have dealt with, Brenda is the most professional, positive, knowledgeable and helpful Realtor we have ever encountered. We were in one state and the house we were selling was 1300 miles away. Brenda handled everything with ease. She kept us well informed from beginning to end. The entire process was accomplished in a very professional and expeditious manner. You can be assured we will refer your agency at every opportunity. Thanks again Brenda for an outstanding job.
We were very pleased with our experience with Brenda. From the first time I contacted Brenda on the internet she was always responsive. She handled the negotiations professionally and with care. And she was very thorough and attentive to detail. We have already recommended Brenda to a couple we found looking at the development where we bought, and we would enthusiastically recommend her to others. We have done a number of residential real estate transactions over the years, and Brenda was the most knowledgeable and conscientious broker we have worked with.
Brenda grasped my objective and was a provider of information spanning over a year in time. I initially contacted several agents, and narrowed the list down to two, and then there was Brenda, who was quickly identified as being my number one choice to represent me. As expected, her performance was flawless. I respect, appreciate, and have learned from Brenda’s professionalism, and attention to detail.
Brenda & her team was a pleasure to work with. They answered all of our questions and continuously kept us informed during the home buying process. Brenda and her team are true professionals and they exceeded all of our expectations. It is evident that the Brenda O’Brien Team is committed to incredible customer service before and after the closing.
Your services were very professional and we felt your communication with us was excellent. We have very very positive thoughts about the Brenda O’Brien Team and the Long Realty Team.
At our first meeting, we immediately felt so at ease. You radiate the knowledge, confidence and professionalism for success. You couldn’t get any more dynamic than you already are. We are so happy that we worked with you - Top job. We certainly would recommend you to future clients.
Brenda was the third REALTOR I worked with. The moment I met her, I knew she was special and that she would sell my place...she did. I found Brenda passionate about her profession and also a wonderful, caring human being, Her abilities and awareness were reassuring as she came alongside me throughout the process of selling my home. I felt supported in every way possible, she gave me encouragement and confidence. If you are familiar with Tucson artist Diana Madaras...Brenda is the Tucson Real Estate what Diana Madaras is to Tucson art – colorful, creative, expressive, profession and beautiful. I will always be grateful to Brenda and her staff. I feel blessed to have worked with them.
The Brenda O’Brien Team was terrific to work with. Pat found us a beautiful home in Tucson that was exactly what we were looking for. Despite the fact that we were relocating from the East Coast and could not be present for the negotiations and closing, Pat acted in our behalf and closely protected our interests in our absence. He worked closely with our realty company in Virginia to ensure that the selling and buying process proceeded as smoothly as possible. It is because of the highly professional, yet personal and caring attention that the Brenda O’Brien team afforded us t
When we began our plans to move from the San Francisco area to Tucson, we used the internet to find a Realtor. The Brenda O’Brien website was the one we chose due to its friendly and thorough format. After emailing and speaking with Pat, we chose the Brenda O’Brien Team to assist us in finding a home in Oro Valley. Pat was excellent, Brenda was very helpful and professional. We will always be grateful for the quality service. We love our home.
I am glad that I chose Brenda O’Brien to handle the sale of my home. Everything went very smoothly. Brenda was completely professional and never failed to answer any question that I had. She is a top-notch Realtor in every aspect and she is a pleasure to work with
Upon the initial meeting with Brenda and reviewing the possible listing of our home, we were pleasantly surprised with the listing price she suggested. Furthermore, we were happy to see her confidence and enthusiasm when she stated she could see it quickly. And she did, 4 days later! She and her team followed the sale to its closing in a very professional and astute manor even after hitting a few “speed Bumps” that needed to be worked out. We are very happy with the expertise of Brenda and her team. We will definitely call upon Brenda for any future real estate needs and sincerely would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone.
Brenda did a great job of selling our home. From start to finish she was very professional. We chose Brenda to represent us in our sale because she was the first Realtor we met that recognized what a great neighborhood we live in and priced homes to maximize their value for the Seller. Thanks again for making our sale a “smooth sail”.
Brenda O’Brien is a consummate real estate professional. For several years, she e-mailed to me residential listed properties for sale in the Tucson area. After finally making a decision to purchase, I flew to Tucson from Minneapolis and met with Brenda. She had arranged to view properties with me over a long weekend. I made an offer on a home which ideally suited my desires. Brenda skillfully and efficiently coordinated the closing by mail and internet. She and her team have my strongest recommendation.

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.
Simply put…Brenda is, by far, the best Realtor we have ever worked with! From the listing to the “sold sign” she delivered professionalism and ethics. We will recommend her services every chance we get. We can’t thank you enough Brenda
Working with Brenda O’Brien has been a delight. Her skill and efficiency made buying a house effortless. I would select Brenda in the future and recommend her team for a job well done
Brenda did an outstanding job of advertising our home in all the appropriate places. She listened to what we expected regarding showing our home. She was personally responsible in arranging and showing our home that resulted in sale. 18 days from sales contract to closing
We were very lucky to find the Brenda O’Brien team during our internet search for a good place to retire. From the beginning, with email and personal contact, O’Brien team members provided us with truthful and helpful information about the Tucson area. They were very understanding and helpful as we struggled with finding a perfect retirement home; it was a pleasure working with him. We strongly recommend this outstanding, professional team for all of your real estate needs
We just employed Brenda to represent us as Buyers, for the second time. Brenda once again, demonstrated superior skills and professionalism. She is the best real estate professional we have encountered, and we have done a number of transactions over the years. She is knowledgeable, assertive and tactful. During this last transaction she saved us several thousand dollars by shrewdly negotiating. We strongly recommend Brenda
Brenda did an outstanding job in marketing and selling our house in this difficult seller’s market. Her web site is by far the best we have seen and indeed we sold to an out-of-town buyer. Brenda made the process very easy for us and we were always kept well informed. If we ever have to buy or sell another house in Tucson there won’t be any decision to make concerning who we choose as a Realtor – it will be Brenda O’Brien and her team!
We found the Brenda O’Brien team to be very caring and professional. Our initial contact was Brenda’s web site. She called back immediately and was very helpful and knowledgeable about Tucson/Oro Valley area. Her entire team was very helpful with referrals including a mortgage lender and other services. We would not hesitate to recommend Brenda and her entire team to my friends or anyone! They are the best
Working with Brenda was a pleasure. She had all the answers and followed through on all the services necessary. I have been buying and selling properties all my life and the quality of service from Brenda is the best there is.
We are extremely pleased with your service and the ease with which you made our transition to the new home in Oro Valley. We previously contacted two Tucson realtors prior to calling in the “O’Brien Team” and their efforts were non-productive virtually fruitless compared to Brenda. Although this deal was done via long distance all actions were performed crisply and professionally. Well done ladies. If we can ever be of assistance to you, do not hesitate to contact us. Well Done
Paula and I wish to thank you for the extraordinary help that you gave to us in finding our second home in Tucson. Not only are you extremely knowledgeable about the Tucson real estate market but you are a true gentleman. You never pushed us to buy any of the homes that we looked at. The final decision was ours and ours alone. Your approach to selling real estate is dramatically different than what we are used to seeing in Chicago. The entire process was a pleasure from start to finish and was most appreciated by us. It is no surprise that you, Brenda and your team have been so successful in the Tucson housing market. In addition we have never seen a better website than Brenda O'Brien.com. It is far more that a listing of homes for sale. Thanks again for all of your expert advice and patience.
Brenda was on top of her game and saw the sale of our home through to the end. It was the most difficult of circumstances surrounding this transaction …from market conditions to the buyers’ demands. We are so fortunate that Brenda was there every step of the way. Though we have now moved out of AZ, we recommend Brenda and her team highly. She will take care of you from beginning to end. Not only did our home sell, we feel we walked away gaining a friend
We commend Brenda on a wonderful job done in the sale of our home. Right in the middle of the lender trauma when things were down, Brenda managed to sell our home at a nice price. She can get the job done in good times and bad times. We will use her again and again.
We can’t image having a better group of professionals than Brenda O’Brien’s team working for us during these adverse market times. Every negative event possible came at us but she just plowed in harder and beat all the others. Thanks for pulling us through with amazing results compared to the averages in these times.
The sale of our casita went pretty quickly, didn’t it!?!?. We liked the personal attention, showing feedbacks, phone calls and emails we received from you during the time our home was listed for sale. You took a personal interest in selling our home for us. Thanks for all your help.
When I decided to sell my home in, I knew that I would need a Realtor that knew the area and you came to mind. Because I had already moved to my new home, I wanted to sell as soon as possible. When neighbors and friends found out that we listed our home on April 9 and the property closed on May 12, they were in awe. I feel you priced it right and you had complete knowledge of the area. Some of my neighbors still cannot believe it all happened so fast. It has been such a pleasure working with you and I would not hesitate one second to recommend you to anyone selling their home.
We have been so pleased with your support, guidance and attention to detail over the past several months. Buying a home can be a trying experience, particularly so when attempting to do so from two thousand miles away. We extend thanks to Brenda and the entire team. What we appreciate most is the professionalism you exhibited throughout the process. Thank you again for all you have done to help us find our perfect Tucson home.
Just wanted to say that our home buying experience was the best yet! Michael and the Brenda O'Brien team did exactly what we asked him to do and it all went very smoothly.
It was our pleasure to have Michael as our Realtor. He helped us make our way through the maze of all the rules and regulations to a very successful conclusion. Thanks to Michael and the Brenda O’Brien team. We made the purchase of our dreams. Your team is tops!
We’ve always felt we’ve worked with good Realtors in the past --- until we worked with Pat and the Brenda O’Brien team. What a wonderful surprise! Pat went above and beyond our expectations. He not only took us to many homes, he then took other family members to these homes. Pat was generous with his time, gave us good advice, much needed support and a refreshing positive attitude. We are still amazed at Pat’s outstanding problem solving skills, and how quickly he could get things accomplished. We appreciate Pat and Brenda’s honesty, professionalism, preparedness, enthusiasm and patience. You have out highest recommendations and thanks
The Brenda O’Brien Team is tops in our book. Brenda visited our home after the unsuccessful efforts of another agency and reviewed the “selling process” that proved successful. She was complimentary about the home and suggested minor changes to make the home more inviting. When she received an offer she reached us halfway around the world in New Zealand. It was only a 30 minute phone call that an agreement was met and a few weeks later…a closing. Now it doesn’t get any better than that!
Brenda was absolutely wonderful! I appreciated her consistent communication, knowledge of the market and her expertise in handling our listing. As a Realtor myself, I have high expectations for service. Brenda was outstanding and I appreciated it! I knew that we had an expert on our side and it was very comforting. I also appreciated her encouragement to stage the vacant property. I am a huge believer in staging my listings in Oregon but it is always hard to invest the money as a seller. I know that it was money well spent because it made our patio home look incredible in the photos on her website and it attracted a buyer and a good offer right away. Thanks again, Brenda for your hard work you and your team provided. I will certainl
As you know we were and are very pleased with the outcome of your efforts in selling our home. You and you team are very sophisticated and we really appreciated that. We certainly will recommend you and have done so several times already
Brenda is “the Best of the Best”!!!
From the first moment I spoke with Brenda, I was impressed with her knowledge and professionalism. She understood immediately what I was facing, and helped me every step of the way. The team of people she recommended to clean the house, make repairs and stage the home was professional, helpful and kind. Once we had it on the market, it sold in three days! In this market, no less. It truly speaks to her expertise. I cannot adequately express my gratitude for Brenda and everything she did to make this difficult time much easier. I have worked with many Realtors over the course of the last 10 years and I will say without question that she is the best, not only as a professional but as a kind and caring person. I was so lucky to have worked with her.
Brenda is a sharp woman and spares no expense in marketing your home. She presented us with high resolution professional pics printed on thick bond paper, a video tour, high-end magazine listings, agent tours, networking and everywhere online. Any keyword will bring up Brenda's site with your home listed. I have yet to find a better website that is so comprehensive. Our home had numerous viewings. Most were out of town buyers that found us through the various medias. Brenda calls to clarify every detail so you understand exactly what to expect in this journey. I've had agents supposedly working on my behalf in the past. I didn't know what superb was until this transaction. I would clearly choose Brenda for every future real estate need. She's the #1 agent in several categories for a reason
Brenda was the best! She was always responsible, professional and competent. She is the best Realtor we ever dealt with and we were totally delighted with her services. We will use her on all of our Tucson real estate transactions!
We needed to sell our home quickly to claim the corporate incentives attached to our company’s relocation package. We choose Brenda because she was the top seller in Oro Valley and we were not disappointed. Our house sold in 8 days during a very slow house selling slump! Brenda suggestions to “stage” our house and her marketing strategies really made the difference. Bottom line, we couldn’t have done it without her and neither should you!!! Place your confidence in Brenda. She can sell your house
I wish to express my deepest gratitude to you and your team for selling my home. From the moment we signed the listing contract I encountered the highest professionalism, care, enthusiasm and passion in you. You sent a professional photographer. You advised me about furniture arrangement and it made a tremendous difference. My home sold within 2 days with a very good price in spite of the depressing economy. I would like to thank you and will definitely recommend Brenda highly to my friends and family members.
We have bought and sold dozens of houses over the past 30 years. Working with Brenda was certainly among the best agent experiences we have had. Great ideas, creative approaches, use of professionals in marketing and constant communication made this our best real estate experience. Sold home in a few days with closing less than 30 days from listing. Recipe for success, price to market, hire Brenda!!!
Michael, thanks for everything. This journey was conducted over about a 5 year period with 3 visits to Tucson to look at many different properties. In the process, we visited your website several times a week to check on different trends and areas. We understand this was not a huge transaction for you guys, but your commitment, professionalism and responsiveness on details for a transaction this size was deeply appreciated by us.
I’d like to say thanks to Brenda O’Brien for so efficiently marketing and selling my home. After no action from a previous Realtor, and upon suggestions of friends, I turned to Brenda. She fully lived up to the recommendations of two friends who had very successful experiences with her – keeping me informed, fully advertising, open houses, giving “all out attention” and within just 31 days she had a sale! All inspections and details were well cared for, making it an easy transaction. Follow up has been so pleasant and I feel I’ve made a friend whom I’d like to recommend to anyone needing her knowledge, thoroughness and service.
We were very pleased with the professionalism shown us during the entire process of selling our home. Brenda is a very down to earth person and made the difficult task of listing and selling a house a pleasant experience. We were also very impressed with the professional way the listing appeared in a notebook showing a little about the subdivision as well as the events and opportunities within our nearby community. All questions were answered completely and thoroughly by Brenda and her office staff. Closing was explained very thoroughly and the date was set far enough in advance to allow us to adequately prepare for it. Brenda also arranged to have our Utah home closing at the same time so we were able to sell and buy at the same time. Again, thanks Brenda for a very pleasant and professional home selling experience.
We very much appreciated Michael handling the home buyer process for us. He handled the inspections and checked on house once sellers vacated. Over and above is how we see it. We are so glad we picked the Brenda O’Brien Team. Michael was awesome and so were the staff in office. We felt welcome and respected. The contacts we made from the various services we could use, told us how much they like working with O'Brien group. It's like a big family that we are now a part of
Thank you VERY much to Michael! Don and I both want to say how impressed we’ve been all through this process working with you. In our 43+ years together, we’ve bought and sold many homes and worked with realtors who were good as well as really bad. You were the best and we appreciate all you’ve done and continue to do
This past summer, my cousin and I were faced with the frightening task of selling my father’s house following his death. The house was fundamentally beautiful, and it was situated on a lovely piece of land, but it had been neglected for years, stuffed with an impossible number of belongings, and most worrisome of all, both my cousin and I live hundreds of miles away from Tucson. Brenda and her team took on this project with astonishing speed, efficiency, elegance, and grace. The entire sale was closed less than three months from the date of our signing on with the Brenda O’Brien team, and their performance in every aspect of the process was simply outstanding. I would recommend Brenda and her team, without any reservation whatsoever, to anyone who wants to enjoy a smooth, satisfying, and profitable home-selling experience. I have bought and sold a lot of real estate in my life, but Brenda is, without question, the most capable, personable, and trustworthy realtor I’ve ever met.
What is often a high stress task became truly stress free under Brenda’s guidance. Thanks to her attention to detail, knowledge and professionalism, our home sold! I’ve highly recommended her to others.
We can't thank you enough for the great job you and the O'Brien team did in marketing our house here in Sun City. We don't know if it was due to your incredible prominence on the web, the vast resources of the Long Realty organization, or your own personal charm, but there was never a shortage of potential buyers wanting to see our house. We suspect the key to your remarkable success is not only your wealth of experience in the real estate business, but also your unfailing warmth and graciousness and the day-to-day contact you provide. Just a hunch, but we have a feeling these are probably the reasons your office seems to run so smoothly and effortlessly.
BRAVO! . . . to Brenda O'Brien and Michael Lynch of the O'Brien Team at Long Realty for selling our Oro Valley house in 19 days. We had been on the market for 5 months with another Realtor with little activity. We decided to change Realtors and took a friend's advice to call Brenda. What a great decision! We met with Brenda O'Brien and Michael Lynch and they orchestrated an amazing marketing plan that attracted many potential buyers. Their efforts resulted in a clean offer significantly above the average cost per square foot in our area. This allowed us to relocate to Colorado just in time to move into the new house we built . . . with no interim housing arrangements. It takes professionalism and commitment to make that happen! Simplify your Real Estate transaction - talk to Brenda and Michael

Tracey was the best real estate agent we could have asked for. As first time home buyers we has A LOT of questions and Tracey was always available and more than willing to answer them. Over the course of our home search, we looked and walked through many houses and Tracey was there for all of them. She was encouraging, helpful and willing to do whatever it took to get us our dream home. We genuinely cannot thank her enough
Brenda O'Brien did a great job representing my interests during the sale of my home in Marana. Brenda was recommended by my brother-in-law and she me my expectations. My transaction had to be done long distance while I was already in another state. Everything went more smoothly that I had hoped. Thank you Brenda
Brenda is a complete professional. At our first “pre-listing” meeting she came with a marketing kit that was complete, detailed and totally organized. In my 40 years of real estate (as a savings bank executive, etc), I have never seen a more professional Realtor. She is supported by a great team
Brenda worked with us to both sell our home and find a new one for us. She is tops in all areas: multi-marketing strategies, communication on all items no matter how (seemingly) small, negotiating, determining property values & staging. Brenda never seems to sleep! On several occasions I sent her an email after hours thinking I would hear back from her sometime the next day but within 10 to 15 minutes Brenda’s response was in my in-box! Unheard of!! Our entire experience both as sellers & buyers surpassed our highest expectations. I would never even consider hiring anyone else for any real estate needs. For us there is no one else!
I had been watching Brenda O'Brien's excellent website (one of the best realtor ones) for 16 years. When my husband died in February 2015, she was the first one to come to my mind to sell his home in Oro Valley. So I contacted her and she became my realtor. Selling Pat's house after he passed away was very sad for me and living such a long distance from Plano, Texas could have made the process difficult and very complicated. Brenda handled everything from listing to the closing and made the process go smoothly. She found a person to fix up the house to put it in sale condition. She promptly answered any questions and with her knowledge guided me along with aplomb. I was very impressed with her professionalism and would not hesitate for a moment to refer anyone I know to her in both selling and buying capacities. I just sold my house in Plano, Texas and although I was satisfied, my experience with Brenda greatly surpassed the selling experience here. Brenda is a priceless employee to the agency she represents. She is a knowledgeable, professional, efficient and pleasant person, all extremely important attributes in her profession. If I ever have the opportunity to either buy or sell a house in the Tucson area she will again be the first one who comes to mind.
Brenda O’Brien and the entire team were consummate professionals through our entire transaction. Brenda took what could have been a very difficult and awkward process and held our hands through the entire thing. I am grateful that the decision was made to go with Brenda and Long Realty and would highly recommend her and her team of professionals to anyone.
We will certainly use the Brenda O’Brien Team again should the need arise. Our home was listed and sold in the first week. The entire process was well-organized and no problems!
We are pleased to recommend Bill and the Brenda O’Brien Team. An “over and above” service attitude stands out. Bill’s on site presence great helped solve several problems in our absence, as MN snowbirds. He stayed on top of every detail, helped organize tradesman and communicated very well overall. He also counseled us about a few details I had missed. The result was a perfectly smooth no hassle transaction. We would use Bill and the Brenda O’Brien team again for sure. Well Done!
We selected Brenda O'Brien to sell our home and furnishings based on her extensive experience knowing we would be absent during most of the process. Brenda fully met all expectations. She handled all issues including home inspection, necessary improvements, selling of furnishings and closing. The online feedback from prospective buyers was an added benefit giving us insight into how the home was being views. We highly recommend Brenda O'Brien!
We worked directly with Brenda O’Brien. She was professional, detailed and answered all our concerns in a timely manner. From pricing our home to signing the closing documents, everything went smooth. We have purchased and sold a few homes over the years and this was by far, the best experience we’ve ever had. We highly recommend Brenda O’Brien and her team.
Brenda has both helped me purchase a patio home & sold it 12 years later. I returned to her as I knew she had the experience, knowledge, etc. so no need to look for any other broker. She did an outstanding job on keeping the sale from falling apart so confirmed that I had made the right decision by staying with her.
Thanks so much for selling our home. I really felt like I was getting good advice for you and never felt that you had anything but our best interest at heart. As a matter of fact, I’ve already recommended you to a neighbor in Sun City. Thanks for Everything
Brenda and Michael did an outstanding job for us and we were very pleased with the listing, sale time and fast closing. We would recommend them to anyone selling their home
We have bought and sold many properties, and found Brenda O’Brien to be one of the most professional and knowledgeable agents we've ever worked with. She responded to phone messages and/or e-mails almost immediately, regardless of the time of day or day of the week. She provided excellent feedback after showings, and sold our house quicker than the average DOM for our area. We will recommend a Brenda to anyone we know who is looking to buy or sell in Oro Valley!
Our experience with Brenda O’Brien was positive from the moment she walked in our front door. The sale of our home, during a period when there were few sales in our neighborhood in our price range, was smooth, easy and comfortable. We especially appreciated Brenda’s directness and honesty. Being able to reach her with questions was natural and extremely quick. We were impressed by her rapid response to our communications. Overall, her marketing efforts were exemplary
My experience with the Brenda O’Brien team, specifically my listing agent Michael Lynch, was very positive. Over the years, I have purchased and sold ten homes and never experienced the level of professionalism with any other agents that I received from the Brenda O’Brien Team. From the top notch quality of the listing photos and the overall advertising in the promotion of my home, to the day of closing – I could not have asked for more. I know that my decision to use your team was a very good one
Brenda and Michael did an outstanding job for me. The transaction went very well and I would recommend the Brenda O’Brien Team to anyone needing their knowledge and expertise.
My experience with Realtors both as a Seller and Buyer has been positive; that with Brenda O’Brien Team is no exception. A few years ago I had an opportunity to observe your team as Realtors for a house in my neighborhood. You did such a good job for them it convinced me to engage you as my Realtor. You reacted promptly to my phone call and made an appointment to meet. Michael courteously and patiently responded to my questions as he went through the entire process of the house sale and time frame. From beginning to end all went smoothly. You did a beautiful job presenting my house inside and out. Any potential problems and suggestions for solutions were promptly communicated. I appreciated you keeping in touch through the entire process and follow-up. I have already recommended you to friends and will continue to do s
We were pleased to announce to family and friends that our Tucson homeS O L D! Our agent, Michael Lynch, was tenacious and made this deal happen. He has a great personality -- a true professional, thorough, responsive, and a total problem solver. If we had not had Michael, as OUR agent, this deal might have fallen apart. He found solutions and gave us sound advice on how to get to escrow. It has been six-weeks since we closed, we are still unpacking in the White Mountains. Ten weeks ago, we felt like we hit a brick wall, but Michael NEVER gave up and coached us the final level and made it happen. We will "forever" be thankful for having the Brenda O'Brien Team on our side with Michael Lynch as the leader
I embarked on moving my 90 year old mother from Tucson to Pittsburgh. I live in Pittsburgh and my mother lived alone in Tucson with no close family or friends nearby. I lined up a few Realtors and they scheduled visits to discuss the move with her. My mother chose Brenda O'Brien. With a special touch of warmth, Brenda provided feedback on the property, familiarity with the market and confidence in her team's ability to make the sale. I shared with Brenda early on that I needed a lot of help as I did not have any network in the area. I also hoped not to have to make any additional trips out to Arizona. She assured me we could make that happen. We packed up a few items of furniture and moved my mom out prior to marketing the home based on Brenda's counsel. That strategy proved to be insightful. She reorganized the remaining furnishings to improve the showing prospects. Along the way she would alert me to issues, provide names of resources and assist in overseeing the work up to and including a final donation of remaining items to charity. She provided consistent communications on how the marketing and interest was unfolding. Brenda was a pleasant, efficient professional every step of the way.
Thanks to Brenda O’Brien for all she did to sell our home in Tucson. She was on top of everything; very professional and always available to us. We are seniors now living in Colorado. With the wonderful help of our son’s and Brenda’s advice, we accomplished the sale; via phone and computer only.
My most pleasurable experience in buying/selling a home. Kindra with the Brenda O’Brien Team, Ed with Long Mortgage and Pam with Title Security are absolutely the best
We are delighted that Kindra with the Brenda O'Brien Team was our Realtor. She was diligent and on top of every detail about the process of finding and buying our home. We would recommend her to others in the Future
Brenda did a super job of making selling our home a pleasant experience. We were not in the state when we decided to sell. We called Brenda and she took charge. She staged the house for photographer and for showing. She priced it right and the house sold the first day at more than the asking price. She made sure the after sale process went smoothly as well. We highly recommend Brenda and would use her if we again buy a home. James and Sandra Stamson
had my house on market for 3 months, and realtor just kept lowering price. spent $10,000 to paint and recarpet. switched to Brenda; she hired a great stager, and sold house in 30 days! what else needs to be said?? tom kerstien
Brenda recently sold our home in Oro Valley. The photographer did an amazing job which I’m sure helped produce several showings and we were under contract fast. This was our sixth home and Brenda made the process very easy compared to past transactions by providing electronic documents and fast service. Whenever I needed Brenda, she was quickly available. I’ve referred others to Brenda and will continue to do so.
We've used Brenda and her team twice, once as sellers and once as buyers. Both experiences have been very good. She's professional, responsive, and knows how to move a transaction along. We highly recommend Brenda for your real estate buying or selling needs in Tucson.
I bought my house from Brenda in 2006 and had a great experience. In 2017, I decided to sell it. Being a Realtor myself, I was unable to sell my own home. So, I called Brenda and again had a great experience!!!
Kindra Walker was fantastic. She was the main reason our new home purchase and build went so flawlessly. She is very knowledgeable, helpful and proactive! From such a long distance (Washington State) we could have not done without her.
Kindra Walker was professional, knowledgeable, friendly and willing to help us with all aspects of our transaction.
She is the best agent I have worked with in over 40 years of Real Estate transactions. I have held Real Estate licenses in 6 different states over the years. I told her she was the best many times. Don't lose her. Rick
Our experience has been text-book perfect. There is no area in the course of this process that we could really fault. What is more than noteworthy is the frequent occasion that the agent - and with support of the management obviously, have operated way outside the norm. It is overwhelmingly encouraging to see that the level of service exists in a world that has lost its desire to excel. Thank you all.
Our agent was professional and easy to contact. We couldn't be more satisfied with her service.
We got Brenda's name from another neighbor in Monterrey Homes at Vistoso. WE enjoyed working with Brenda...she kept us in the loop. Made several trips to the house to give us hard copy of papers because we do not have printer!!! Important to me, especially. I think this was an easy sale process for Brenda. Realtors from Antiqua Tierra bought our house...so they knew what was going on with paper work, etc. Went very smoothly. About 2 months from start to finish....couldn't ask for anything better.

Tracey is awesome! She went above and beyond in the sale of my home. I did the entire sale and evacuation of my home from across the country and she was never more that a quick phone call or email away. I have had Tracey assist me in buying and selling several times and was always extremely happy with the results. She’s the best!!
Brenda is a terrific agent! If/when I come back (and I quite likely will), I'll certainly choose her and Long Realty. Craig Thorne
Kindra was beyond phenomenal. We had an unusually complicated situation which required a lot of extra work on her part; but she was always on top of things, helpful and cheerful. I highly recommend her.
Paula did an excellent job for us. She was responsive, patient, professional, and pleasant to work with. We were successful in finding a home that is just about perfect, and we are very excited about moving in. We walk away feeling it was an extremely positive experience, we're extremely pleased and satisfied with the results.
Long Realty, especially Crystal Harris was a truly excellent, professional experience. Crystal understood all the obstacles, and went out of her way to alleviate all stress, and went above and beyond to make sure all of our needs were met. My family is truly grateful for all of her efforts and efficiency in getting the job done. We couldn't have done it without her!
Our agent Paula was very knowledgeable and helpful. We highly recommended Paula and Long Realty for any real estate need.
Our agent, Michael Lynch, sold us the property in 2009 and sold it for us in 2018. Both times, Michael was the tops! Bob and Lisa
Brenda and her team were great on follow through of all details and kept our home visible to the buying public throughout the whole process. We had several serious buyers involved and culminated with a perfect match. A great experience!!! Thanks Brenda!!!
We have bought and sold 10 home and Brenda is by far the best realtor we have worked with. She managed the complete sales process perfectly, from the staging, photo shoot to the final paper work. She’s organized, responsive to all requests, knowledgeable and a pleasure to work with. We can’t recommend her highly enough!
During a six week "first time" stay in Oro Valley we began to take an interest in owning a home in Sun City. We knew little of the community but while renting a home for those six weeks we walked nearly every street in Sun City, meanwhile updating a map on locations we thought held homes we would be interested in. It took several home visits for our realtor to understand our interests, but we slowly narrowed our scope of effort. Not fully understanding the market dynamics, we missed out on two homes despite offering more than the asking price. But time and persistence stood on our side and our realtor was patient with our learning curve. When the right home came up, we all knew it and we acted promptly. It was a win-win situation for the buyer and the seller, and both realtors were in synch with the needs and interests of both the buyer and the seller. That is what selling anything, but especially a home, should be all about -- creating dialog in which needs are understood and all parties win at the end.
Kindra is the absolute best!
Extremely knowledgeable and networked realtor. Very connected to contractors that can address any house repair quickly. However, these contractors don’t necessarily mirror the quality that you would expect.
Working with Paula Puls was amazing. She is intuitive to your needs and can obtain the key information of your buying needs in a matter of minutes. We looked at several house and she wanted me to see the house on Reflection Ridge. I kept putting it off. Paula knew all along it was the perfect home for us. Once I finally let go of my issues of controlling everything Paula took me to view the house. From the moment I waked in the front door I knew it was the perfect home for us. We wrote up the purchase agreement within Minutes of viewing the home. Paula was absolutely right and I should have listened to her gentle guidance that this was the perfect home based on the information she had obtain from me. Paula is a true professional in every sense of the word and her knowledge of real estate and the Oro Valley/Tucson market is remarkable. I will definitely recommend Paula to all my friends and family. There is absolutely no doubt in my mind that when it comes time to sell our home I will be only calling one agent and that agent is Paula Puls!
Michael did an excellent job of keeping us both educated and informed. A tremendous asset through some "bumps in the road"
We were extremely satisfied with the outstanding personable job Kindra Walker and the staff at Long Realty performed in the purchase of our new home. We will recommend friends and family to contact this real estate agency for any future transactions. Thanks so much Kindra
Our agent (Kindra Walker) was with us the whole way in setting up house visits and taking care of all the details in getting us ready to make an offer. She worked very well with us as well as with the selling agent and seller to insure our offer got accepted. She has been a great asset throughout the entire house buying experience.
Matthew & Marybeth Steigenga
Kindra was amazing. She made the whole process stress free. We were so happy with the whole experience.
Brenda was great! She had my house sold within months, after being listed with another broker for over 2 years. She used her professional marketing abilities and websites that made my house sell. I was certain after speaking with her that she would change things up....and she did. I’m very happy as it worked out very well for me. Thank you again Brenda.

Sis stars. Brenda & Team listed and closed the sale of Honey Tree Place home in less than 45 days - her professional advise on pricing value / staging / photography were superb and accurate. Home had been listed with local Realtor for 9 months with no offers. Brenda & Team follow attention to detail from showing home to unlocking home for exterminator !! Robert Holland 14005 N.

Brenda and her team were fabulous. They provided constant feedback on showings of the house, provided samples and information on marketing materials . The marketing both online and print was very professional and inviting to a buyer. The escrow process was smooth and problem free. I highly recommend Long Tealty, Brenda and her team for any Tucson, Oro Valley area RealEstate purchase or Sale ! Thank You !
Phillip & Leslie Miller
Brenda and Michael were just wonderful. They were enthusiastic about our home and were very positive about getting sold in a timely manner. Which they did. We really appreciate all they did for us.
Our experiences with Brenda O’Brien and Kindra Walker are perfect examples of exemplary customer (and just plain human) services. When we listed our beloved home we were grieving the loss of our fathers who lived with us. We had a strong need to move forward but found the idea of the process almost too arduous to bear - until we met Brenda and Kindra. They could not have made it easier. I’ve never met such determined professionals. The greatest gift they gave us was their immediate response to our queries. I will recommend them to anyone who inquires and maybe even some that do not. Applause! Applause!!
Paula was an excellent realtor. She quickly got a feel for finding us exactly what we were looking for. We were also very impressed with her availability to us. Thank you very much. Ernesto & Nancy
Leon & Annette Dixon
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 # 1
Paula P was awesome - 10 STARS!!!!!!!

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!
Great job by Brenda O’Brien representing us as sellers of our Cañada Hills Estates home.
We used the 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 successfull. 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 O’Brien team.
