Testimonials

Kerry is an out of the box thinking real estate sales person. She gave me tips on how to sell my house and then found a house for me to buy. She is very organized and showed me houses that fit our requirements without wasting time. I will use & also reccomend Kerry for any real estate transaction.

Kerry listened to our needs for our dream home and contacted us only with homes she knew we would consider purchasing. She knows Monmouth Beach and has helped us navigate our first few months after the sale was complete. (Thanks for the restaurant recommendations! ) She always returns calls, is very honest regarding pricing and helped us negotiate a hassle free purchase

Kerry was extremely professional, honest, straightforward and patient. She helped us for almost two years to find the perfect lot in Monmouth Beach. Through the entire process Kerry was helpful with honest feedback about location and the pros and cons with every property whether it was a lot, a existing home or new construction. She has incredible knowledge of the local area and an amazing network to help with every facet of the deal. We would highly recommend Kerry to anyone who is searching in the area. From your initial meeting with her you will realize that she will do everything in her power to make the process as stress free as possible.

We cannot wait to enjoy our new home in such a beautiful and friendly town.

Kerrin O’Brien is the most professional, compassionate, honest and patient realtor I have ever worked with. It took 2 years to find the right beach home for our family. In that time period Kerri treated us like we were her only client when we new all along how busy she was servicing all of her other clients. She always respected our price point and worked extremely hard to stay within our all around guidelines. She believes in Monmouth Beach, and I feel very proud to now be a resident of this wonderful beach town.

Kerry was extremely professional yet relatable. We are incredibly pleased that she was able to get the job done and sell our house! I would recommend O’Brien Realty to any of my friends and family.

Kerry helped us through an emotional sale of our long time family home. She was sensitive to our needs and made the process ‘easy.’ We contacted a few realtors in the area before listing our home and chose Kerry as she was the most knowledgeable, listened to our needs, and gave us the confidence that she would find the right buyers for our home. She was always there to answer questions and provide status. When a problem arose with a buyer who withdrew their offer, Kerry had another buyer the next day! A potential major problem arose while I was out of the country. Kerry contacted me to let me know there was an oil tank on the property that needed to be removed. While I was certain that the tank had been properly drained 30+ years ago, I knew what the issues would be if any oil was in the ground. When she called to tell me of the tank, she already had a company lined up to do the removal and had paper work ready for permits. She came with a solution!!!! Kerry took the stress out of the sale throughout the process. We listed the house in August and it was sold/closed in November. I highly recommend Kerry!

Kerry has sold numerous homes and has also helped many buyers find their dream homes. Her hard work and dedication precede her as she always works with every client from “Start to Finish.” Below you will read some wonderful testimonials from some of Kerry’s lovely clients.

No agent is as familiar with and will harder for you than Kerry. With Kerry, you will not only find your home, but you will really get to know Monmouth Beach, surrounding towns, and its residents. This usually does not happen until a few years of settling into a town but with Kerry, the welcome to this great shore town begins the moment you meet her. She gets our vote not only as the best agent out there but as our future town Mayor! 

Joe and Elaine, Monmouth Beach, NJ


Knowledgeable, resourceful, and thinks outside the box would be the proper way to describe my experience with Kerry in real estate. Where other brokers chase commissions she has developed a knack for matching the right properties with right buyer. She gets the deal done where both parties walk away happy.

Steve, Monmouth Beach, NJ


When we asked Kerry to help us find a house in Monmouth Beach we felt, from start to finish, that she had nothing but our best interest at heart. And the result is a house that we are so in love with and a neighborhood that is perfect for us. We couldn’t be happier. Kerry knew what we were looking for and she delivered on every level.

Kristen and Lester, Monmouth Beach, NJ


It is very gratifying to meet someone dedicated to doing a good job. Kerry is that person.  Kerry spent almost two years helping me find the perfect house. That she did.  Her efforts are sincerely appreciated.

Katie, Monmouth Beach, NJ


If you want the most comprehensive evaluation of the market, creativity in putting together proposals and a totally dedicated person who puts your interests first, then you should work with Kerry. She is totally in the know and is highly respected by everyone she deals with.

Sharon, Monmouth Beach, NJ


Kerry helped us navigate buying a home in a town that was completely new to us. Her flexibility made the search very easy and she worked very hard to get us through the entire process taking on responsibilities that she didn’t have to. She is an above and beyond kind of person.

Cristina, Monmouth Beach, NJ


Kerry does the impossible when it comes to real estate and her loyalty is outstanding. She went way above and beyond the call of duty to sell our property in this troubled economy. She travelled extensively for paperwork and took on all of our legwork and aggravation to help us keep our peace of mind. Although it took some time to sell our property, she continued to stay in touch with us on a daily basis. Anyone else would have given up long before the deal was done. We hope that she has become a life long friend.

Kathleen, Monmouth Beach, NJ


Kerry was referred to us through a good friend as being the most knowledgable realtor in the Monmouth Beach area. We were pleasantly surprised that she was nothing less. Kerry worked diligently with us through the whole process, from house hunting to closing and post follow thru. Kerry was a pleasure to work with and will continue to receive my endorsement for anyone moving into the area.

Brian, Monmouth Beach, NJ


Kerry O’Brien could not have made the sale of our house any easier, a tough proposition in today’s housing market. She helped us to time the listing perfectly, and it sold very quickly at an excellent price.  She helped us to flawlessly get through the inspection items and other things that invariably come up in transactions like this, and her efforts kept us on track for closing on the original date both parties agreed upon… quite the feat in the state of New Jersey.  She is a straight shooter, very pleasant, and very responsive. In short, I wouldn’t hesitate to use her again for any real estate transaction.

Ellie, Monmouth Beach, NJ


As newcomers to the area we were very lucky to have Kerry recommended to us via a work colleague. She is very knowledgeable on the local area and really put herself out to help us find our new home.  Kerry made herself available to suit our schedule and I really felt like she was in our corner and not just doing the basic job. I highly recommend her professional and friendly service.

Michael and Kate, Monmouth Beach, NJ


Kerry was great. We found her to really care about our needs, budget and overall happiness. Kerry walked us through the process and kept us updated at all times. If you are buying in Monmouth/Ocean counties I strongly recommend her.

Ken B., Long Branch, NJ


Kerry is the best!! The relationship I had with Kerry was unlike any other realtor/client relationship I have had in the past. She will go above and beyond for you, and genuinely and honestly serve her clients. And she does this all with a sense of great humor, honesty, patience, integrity, genuine kindness and responsive communication. She does not pressure you. She works harder than any realtor I have known before and she is the first realtor that I trust implicitly, because I know my best interest is number one to her!! I have complete confidence in Kerry and she has my highest recommendation! I would never hire another realtor. 

Deborah, Highlands, NJ


Kerry went above and beyond. She had in depth knowledge of the area, the market and the process. I would never hire another realtor when doing business in South Jersey. She was a true professional who had an extended network of other related professionals and it was a pleasure working with her. I recommend her highly!

Rena, Monmouth Beach, NJ 


Extremely knowledgeable about the marketplace and process of negotiating and closing the deal. Provided thoughtful guidance and insight which made us feel she was a true partner in our search for a home and we were definitely excited that she was on our side. I highly recommend Kerry to anyone looking to buy or sell and cannot say enough about her professionalism and integrity. 

Rob A.,  Monmouth Beach, NJ


Kerry is awesome. She took so much time with us, and always made us feel comfortable. She completely held our hands through the process of purchasing our first home!! She has so much knowledge in the field of real estate and especially property in Monmouth Beach! We HIGHLY recommend working with her. 

Rob and Petra, Monmouth Beach, NJ


Arguably one of, if not the best real estate agent in Monmouth County. Kerry will give you 150% of her expertise in selling or buying a house.

Kerry was a great agent to work with. She is very knowledgeable about the area and made the process go very smoothly. She went over and above to make sure we were comfortable with our home purchase. I would highly recommend her to anyone. 

Alison, Fair Haven, NJ


We had a wonderful experience with Kerry and her team. She brought a buyer to us before we even listed out house! She delivered on her promises!

Betsy, Monmouth Beach, NJ 


This is the second time we have worked with Kerry. The first time was when we purchased our condo. Kerry gave us invaluable insight and advice as we were looking for an income property. This time we were looking for a tenant for our condo. We reached out to Kerry to ask advice on markets and tenants.  The new tenant was found immediately and signed the lease. Kerry and her office handled all the paperwork necessary with the condo association, lease, and helped the tenant get acclimated with the condo association too. We love the customer service that O’Brien Realty provides.

John, Long Branch, NJ


Kerry was amazing from start to finish. She made buying our first house a unforgettable experience. I would highly recommend her to anyone that is looking to make that next big move.

Alexandra, Monmouth Beach, NJ 


Kerry & Tammy, no BS, 2 individuals who get the job done [house purchase]. A pleasure to work with. No hesitations in giving them 5 stars.

Jake Higgins


I loved working with Kerry on the purchase of my new home. She and Tammy and others in her office are just the best! You won’t find a more knowledgeable and savvy partner to help you negotiate the best deal. That’s just what she did for me. I felt I was in the best hands from start to finish — even when things got stressful. Kerry’s breadth of knowledge in the business helped reassure me that what seemed like obstacles were hurdles easily and satisfactorily managed. And now, I have two great friends and neighbors in addition to a beautiful new home. I can’t say enough about Kerry and O’Brien Realty!

K. Florence


As a first-time home buyer, I was really not sure to expect about the buying process, but Kerrin O’Brien and the O’Brien Agency made it a pleasure. Kerrin is responsive, professional, caring, smart, and has forged great relationships in the industry. I highly recommend calling Kerrin if you’re looking for someone to help guide you through the process, address your concerns, and help you seal the deal in this very competitive housing market!

anniemrn 


Kerry’s warm and outgoing personality made the search for a home that met an extensive list of requirements a pleasure. She has an exceptional understanding of her marketplace, negotiates fairly and with common sense, is a problem solver, and her creativity helps you imagine all the possibilities of a property. I was treated as if I was her only client. I highly recommend Kerry O’Brien.

Cindy


When selling my home, all I cared about was finding a broker with integrity, honesty, and someone who put the client’s needs first. That’s O’Brien Real Estate in a nutshell!

tpavlick


You deal with Kerry and you deal with the best. Not only has Kerry kept in touch after our successful rental, she’s introduced us to a few great spots in town as well as a number of wonderful people. A truly great person and delightful agent to deal with.

Jrkommer


Kerry was invaluable and resourceful with the sale of a family home with a very complicated transaction. She was professional, patient and kind and worked with me throughout the process living 300 miles away. Her knowledge of the town and real estate were critical but more importantly, her ability to get the job done is stellar.

mariannehphillips


Kerry made buying a house all the way from Denver an easy and seamless process. She did all the heavy lifting and was there every step of the way, from showing to closing. I cannot recommend her highly enough. She is, by far, the most professional realtor I have ever dealt with.

Scott Gilbert


When working with Kerry you realize there will be no beginning or end to the work that she will do for you. She is knowledgeable, committed, courteous, and most of all effective. When problems arise with our rentals she is always right there to help us solve any issues we may have. I highly recommend O’Brien Realty.

Monicabonner63


Kerry was so helpful in helping us find our home that best fit our budget. I would recommend her to anyone looking to list or buy a home. Excellent experience.

kevinmichaeljordan


Kerry O’Brien is a true professional in a real estate world that sometimes is a hard commodity to find! If you are looking for someone with extensive local knowledge, can negotiate well on your behalf (but not to the point where you will lose the deal) , works through the inevitable obstacles in the transaction logically and tirelessly to reach a quick resolution then Kerry is one of the top agents for you. In my recent transaction she demonstrated this despite a number of frustrating obstacles and was always available even “after hours” to discuss solutions to keep the transaction moving. Last but not least , Kerry is true to her word whether or not it is in her own interest.

Kevinegosney


Kerry was with us every step of the way. She was honest and cared about what we wanted. She was on time and prepared. Her agency is the best and even after the sale has been very helpful. We have owned many homes (moving for work) and she has by far been the best agent we have ever had. Cant say enough good things about her and her agency. Use O’Brien Reality !

Curtis.blodgett


Kerry is an outstanding agent! She is very knowledgeable about real estate and at the same time is respectful and considerate of her clients’ needs. We have found this combination to be very rare, having dealt with more agents than I care to recall. Unlike other agents, she didn’t try to push us into something we were not interested in. Instead she took the time to explore the possibilities that appealed to us. Kerry saw us through the purchase of our 6th house. She would go out of her way to assist throughout the process and was always very positive and helpful.

Mblodgett1 


 Look no further than this wonderful realtor! Kerri is one of the best in the business. We called her randomly three years ago before making a move from Chicago, and gave her a list of towns we wanted to look at. After spending the day with her she told us that we would really “fit well” in Monmouth Beach, a town we weren’t even considering. We have been here for 3 years and it was the best decision we have ever made. She is in total tune with the needs of her clients, she works harder than anyone, and she has her finger on the pulse of the market at all times. Aside from her professionalism and work ethic, she is a gem of a person, and is always so positive and pleasant. If you are thinking of using a realtor, you can not afford to use anyone else!

Mike Brownalcini 


When we started looking we were not sure what we wanted, but Kerry was able to listen and work with us to help us find exactly the right property. Kerry knows Monmouth Beach and the surrounding area really well and took the time to show us around. Kerry was always professional, responsive, open, honest and fair — overall great to work with. If you are buying or selling in Monmouth Beach or the surrounding towns, we highly recommend working with Kerry.

Nansimon717


My family recently purchased a summer home in Monmouth Beach. We could not have been more thrilled with the service we received from Kerry and her staff. She found the house for us and facilitated the process with us and the seller. She is also an excellent resourse for finding us the personnel necessary in purchasing a home such as home inspector, insurance broker, and even deorator! Working with Kerry was such a pleasure and would not hesitate to recommend her to any of my friends/family.

Jessica Rothman


Kerry O’Brien is a delight to work with. She cares about her clients and listens to their specific needs. Her knowledge in the real-estate market is impressive and she delivers with professionalism. I would definitely recommend Kerry O’Brien as an agent.

What an absolutely pleasurable experience it was to do business w Kerry Obrien Realty. She is extremely professional and knowledgeable. She knows everyone in town and I do believe most of her clients are pleased to call her friend. I would not hesitate to use her again. Honest and affable sum her up.

drbjl5


Working with Kerry was the best decision my husband and I could’ve made. We interviewed three reputable realtors in our area and both felt Kerry just “got us”. She gained our trust immediately with her insight, people skills, and knowledge of real estate. Kerry is the kind of person you meet and just want to be friends with. We truly felt she had OUR best interest at heart. Her guidance, advice, and support were invaluable. We trusted her and it paid off. We joked that if Kerry ran for office, we’d vote for her…but we both meant it.

Jennmazz5


O’Brien Realty in Monmouth Beach is the only broker that should be considered when looking to buy or sell a property. The level of expertise and professionalism should be a model for all agents. Kerry made the entire process simple and protected both the buyers and sellers interests. It is very difficult to find a “win-win” during the transaction and that usually holds the process up. Kerry was able to negotiate for both sides where all parties at the end felt pleased. I would recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell a home. Her knowledge is second to none.

scottbcrothman


Kerry was very professional and knowledgeable. She read people/situations well, knew the area well and listened to what we liked or didn’t like. She didn’t pressure and was solution-oriented when we hit a snag in the process. She also offered advice and expertise on the house we were selling, which did not involve her in any way. We would highly recommend Kerry to anyone looking to buy or sell.

Peg and Tim Fallon


Kerry is one of the most knowledgeable realtors I have ever worked with. She is exceptionally versed in all areas of real eatate and has the clients best interest at heart. There wasn’t a question in my mind that Kerri wouldn’t find our family the perfect house and for that I am grateful. Thanks Kerri for your patience, expertise and guidance throughout this process!

Kerry is an extremely responsive and knowledgeable realtor and has a deep understanding of the Monmouth Beach market. My wife and I were searching for a second home and Kerry listened to our needs and price range and showed us a great variety of homes – 1 of which we ultimately purchased. I would highly recommend Kerry and her team. Best realtor I have worked with.

This is the second time we have worked with Kerri. The first time was when we purchased our condo. Kerri gave us invaluable insight and advise as we were looking for an income property. We were newer to the rental property market and had done a lot of research before reaching out to Kerri. She opened our eyes to all the different possibilities and things to consider when purchasing. We ended up with a much better option than we ever thought we could get.

This time we were looking for a tenant for out condo, since our current tenants lease was up and they were moving out of town. We reached out to Kerri to ask advise on markets and tenants. She went right to work to find the right tenant. The new tenant was found immediately and signed the lease. Kerri and her office handled all the paperwork necessary with the condo association, lease, and helped the tenant get acclimated with the condo association too. We love the customer service that O’Brien Realty provides.
