David O'Brien

I have 14+ years of continuous and successful sales experience. I started my career in real estate in 2005 on the finance side and so bring much experience in this area. I closed 21 transactions in 2014.. I am a verified Marin County Top Agent only the top 10% of agents qualify, what this means for my clients is I am privy to pre market listings and other top agents buyers' needs and wants, this is a huge advantage for my clients. Top agents account for approximately 75% of all sales. I am also a member of the Marin Realtors Group another top performing agent group and another added benefit to my clients.

Please check out my reviews and recent homes sold at https://www.zillow.com/profile/Marin-Homes/ to learn more about me and my real estate practice.

I am strong believer in continuing education and have numerous professional designations. I hold the Graduate Realtor designation, this is the most intensive and comprehensive of the courses held by the National Association of Realtors and teaches all aspects of real estate, from marketing and negotiating, to risk management. I have my Accredited Buyers Representative designation, awarded by the National Association of Realtors. These first two designations have large networking groups associated with them, that I am apart of and which allows me to market and locate homes more successfully. I hold the Senior Real Estate Specialist designation, this designation is given after finishing a comprehensive course in matters effecting seniors in the purchase and sale of properties, also awarded by NAR. I also am endorsed by the Charfen Institute as a Certified Distressed Property Expert this last certification is earned once an intensive course in all aspects of distressed property sales is completed. The course covers the particulars concerning both sellers and buyers in the sale and purchase of distressed properties.

I love to volunteer as I love my job, both of which are service oriented. I volunteered at the Marin Humane Society 2004-2007 and the Children's Village of Sonoma 2005-2008. My kids took up all my time between 2008-2010 but starting 2011 I was able to resume volunteering again. I am an active volunteer at Dixie School and have been since 2011. And lastly I am a Dixie Youth Soccer Association coach.

I am a Bay Area native and have lived in Marin over thirteen years now. I currently live in San Rafael with my wife and two children.
