Dawn Wood was my family's real estate agent.

Dawn managed the sale of our family's water front property. Her attention to detail and personal touch to provide the appropriate visuals and written explanations of our water front property promoted the sale in a timely manner. Within weeks, we had a contract on our family's property. During the closing, Dawn Wood's real estate agency provided additional support with legal information concerning the deed and necessary paper work to transfer the property to the new owner. Dawn's strong interpersonal skills was critical while supporting my family's decisions regarding this property. I would recommend Dawn Wood as a real estate agent for my family and friends.


I just wanted to let everyone know Tiffany Harper was an awesome Real Estate Rental Agent for me and my family.

She contacted me every single day on rentals that were available as well as meeting up with me to show me the rentals that were available. She cared about my knee and one of the type of property that I needed to rent and she is a definite asset to the company.

I have seen first hand the time and care Jaymie takes with each and everyone of her clients!

If you are looking for an agent who really cares for her clients and their families give her a call!

Laura was absolutely wonderful !

She was very responsive to all questions at anytime. She went out of her way to help solve problems. Laura helped us sell our home and buy our forever home. Laura is very knowledgeable about all processes and is a very good negotiator.


Dawn was professional, detail-oriented, courteous, and fun to work with as my husband and I looked at homes - and found one we love!

We will recommend her to friends and family who are looking to buy a home.


I was a first time homebuyer with little to no knowledge about the process of home buying but by then end of the 1 and a half year search I had learned so much because of Jaymie.

She was always willing to answer any questions and was extremely patient with me. Whether we had to see a house 5 min or 50 min away she wouldn't hesitate to go see it with me. Honestly couldn't have asked for a better real estate agent than her!


We absolutely loved working with George!

He made the buying process so incredibly easy, which is saying a lot in this crazy market!! From recommendations for a lender, walking us through the inspection process and constant communication - we couldn't have asked for a better agent!

Vanessa was fantastic to work with on our recent purchase of a rental property in St Leonard.

As we were new to Calvert County real estate, we feel very lucky to have found Vanessa with her extensive knowledge of the local market and her wide network of trusted contacts. She was not only extremely responsive to our needs, Vanessa is also very resourceful in resolving issues with a particular strength in negotiating the deal. Looking forward to the next deal with Vanessa!

Made the home buying process easy and enjoyable!

Aside from being an over-all pleasent and relatable person... She was a GREAT agent that I will surely use again for any future needs. She really listened to what we wanted without being pushy. Very tentative and responded quickly to my questions and concerns, which was important to me as i was a first time home buyer. She was also very quick to act on homes that we were interested in.. I can go on-and -on, but long story short... If youre in need of a realtor, jaymie is your gal. THANK YOU, JAYMIE!

George was a huge asset in our search for a new home.

Being completely new to Maryland, we relied on George's knowledge of the area to help us pick the right neighborhood. Also, given the state of the market, George helped us stay positive in finding our forever home. He did just that and more. We highly recommend George to anyone who is looking to buy or sell a house in the Southern Maryland area.

Darren Pezzo

As first time home buyers, we searched everywhere from Southern Maryland to Baltimore and Vanessa was with us the whole way.

She helped us prioritize our needs, ensured we found a great lender, measured rooms with us, and even toasted with us when we closed on our home. She made the process fun and a lot easier then I ever thought it could be.

Keith & Jessica Presley

Cindy is awesome!

She goes above & beyond to make sure her clients are happy! We originally had a contract on another home that fell through, Cindy was patient with us & we ended up finding a home we're in love with. She wants to make sure it's a good fit for her clients & she doesn't just rush you to make a sale! She is patient & works very well with the other agents involved to get her clients what they need & want. Both offers we made were excepted on both homes. Hands down, she is the best!


Roland Mellies the property manager at O'Brien was excellent at his job.

He took over the job from former property manager, Jimmy Hayden, who was not doing his job well at all. This review is about Roland who took over and kept us informed, was always available to answer any questions and to deal with any issues that came up for us or our tenants. Roland is professional while also being friendly and very knowledgeable about anything related to being a property manager. We were very happy when he took over the job and tended to all our needs. If you have a house to rent or are looking to rent, I highly recommend using O'Brien and Roland Mellies as your property manager.

Trish Murphy (Google Review)

Belinda T.

We dealt with O'Brien realty for a year, particularly Roland Mellies, and he is a wonderful property manager.

Very responsive, very professional, an all-round great person! Highly recommend.

Jaymie was amazing to work with.

My husband and I moved here from San Diego. We were unable to come look at houses in person so she did Skype tours of all the houses we wanted to look at and made sure to point out any flaws or anything that may need some maintenance. She was very helpful throughout the whole process!

Karli Kinsel

We had one set of requirements that morphed into another vision altogether.

Our budget, timeline, and life plan changed in the process of finding a home and Vanessa handled it like a champ. She was supportive and flexible, knowledgeable and caring. She stayed on top of our ever-changing whims and provided the guiding hand that helped us find the perfect waterfront home.

Chuck & Kim D.

Jaymie was so fun and easy to work with.

Her response time was impeccable and she was able to answer any questions we had during the purchase of our new home. I would definitely recommend Jaymie!

Angela Trowbridge

Hands down best realtor around!

! Very knowledgeable and helpful with buying a house.


It was a pleasure working with you.

Thank you


My fiancée and I were extremely happy with George as our real estate agent.

George was super helpful for us as first time home buyers. We came into the buying process knowing very little and George was always happy to answer our questions and to set up a viewing anytime we found a house we wanted to see. George was also always willing to meet us on our schedule to look at homes (including on a holiday weekend). George ultimately found the home we purchased, helped us negotiate an offer quickly in a tough market, and made us feel comfortable throughout the entire closing process. Cant recommend George enough!!

Matthew Williams

Her knowledge about the market in the area were very helpful for us to make the right decision at the right moment.

We were hesitant about moving forward with purchasing an Jaymie was patient and always ready to show us properties without pushing. When the time came, she was very responsive an quick to set up the appointment, put together the proposal, submit and follow the negotiation every step of the way. Once the offer was accepted, Jaymie was quick to set up the inspections. She was always present and ready to provide answers and give us guidance when we need it them or even with out us asking, she was always there with the right recommendation.


I just did my first transaction with Jaymie and it was flawless.

I hope we can do more! She is definitely top notch!

Jeff Gay

Roland Mellies and Marc Pare' are two of the most professional realtors I have ever had the pleasure to work with over many years.

Both were always on time, yup on time, quick to respond to questions, patient, and honest! I highly recommend anyone wanting to buy in Southern Maryland contact Marc Pare' and anyone wanting to rent must go through Obrien Realty and Mr. Mellies. I highly recommend these two gentlemen and their firm!!!

Joesph Diagle (Google Review)

Best Realty place there is in my opinion.

My husband and I are first time home buyers and Barbara Click is so very helpful and Dave Hall has also been helpful. I can email text or call either of them any time of the day and they do their best to get back to me in a timely matter. I would recommend O'Brien to anyone!!

Wanda, (Wanda Florence) Thank you.

I just want you to know that you have been fantastic in this whole process and I tell individuals how great you have been as my Realtor. Yes, I have heard some individuals comments about their dealings with Realtors and how they were not happy. You have went above and beyond in the process of selling my property. I really appreciate your work ethics and all you have done to make the sale of my home so quickly and as smoothly as possible. Again, thanks so much for all you have done.

Ed Dietrich

Cindy helped my fiancé and I buy our first home late last year.

As first time home buyers, needless to say, we were in need of a lot of assistance. She is extremely patient and supportive. Considering the competitiveness of the current market, I couldn’t have dreamed of a better agent advocating for us. We ended up putting contracts on two homes. (The first of which we chose to negate after receiving the results of the home inspection) The first house had multiple offers within days, however, Cindy knew how to strategize effectively to land us the contract. As for the second home that we are currently living in and couldn’t be happier with, Cindy went to great lengths to help us secure this home. It is truly our dream home. If you’re looking for an agent that’s responsive, dedicated and knows the market well, Cindy more than fits the bill.


Best experience ever!

Cindy looked at our home and gave amazing, perfect recommendations to get it ready for an optimal sale. We followed her instructions to the letter; then she did light staging at NO COST which was the icing on the cake. It's all about results: THREE offers in THREE days and SOLD! Sold in just 3 days, folks! She walked us through every step of the way, was compassionate with my unexpected bout of loss for my beloved home (why was I crying, it was a great deal??!!), and was there for us after the sale. She helped us find an agent in another State. My five-star rating is not given lightly, she earned each star! Smart people will choose Cindy!


As an agent who works for O'Brien, I can say that we have an excellent team of highly motivated agents who specialize in the greater Southern Maryland area.

Whether you are renting, buying, selling or are transferring through a military assignment, our agents are extremely knowledgeable and dedicated to excellent service. Come stop in and let us show you the expansive inventory we have to offer!

Diana S.

We appreciate all you have done to help us in finding a home.

Thank you for all the help. We will tell our friends about you.


When we decided to sell our property we called Vanessa.

Through her extensive personal and professional relationships, she quickly connected us with a local builder. She negotiated a contract that incorporated all our requirements, worked with our tax needs, and brought us the price than we had hoped for. We couldn't have asked for more!

Barbara & Harold

Very helpful with great attitude.

Communications were frequent and very responsive. Willing to work with her again in the future. Looking forward to building on the land.


George worked with us to find the perfect house and overcome some major obstacles in this crazy housing market.

He is very responsive, knowledgeable and reliable. I highly recommend him as an agent.


Our experience with Mr.

Klein was extremely positive. Despite the state of the market, he helped us keep our hopes up in looking for the right home, all while remaining receptive to our needs and limitations. Positive and honest, George Klein was an excellent agent that i would gladly work with anytime.


Laura was absolutely amazing.

We were in a time crunch and she wasted no time showing us houses and working showings around our schedule. She recommended an amazing loan officer, David Hall, who also was phenomenal at getting us in the house we fell in love with! I cannot say enough positive things about either of these folks!

Suzanne M Copeland

We interviewed several agents prior to listing our home.

From our first meeting to discuss listing our house, we knew Marie Lalley was the right agent to list and sell our home. She had done extensive research on our home, the community and comparables before we met. Her knowledge of Southern Maryland and in particular the 7th District real estate market is second to none. She listened to our needs and budget and offered advice with professionalism and tact. We were extremely impressed with the amount of time and effort Marie and her team put in once we signed a listing contract with her. The amount of photos and video produced to market our home still amazes me. When the listing went live Marie kept us well informed on all showings and feedback from prospective buyers. When we received an offer, Marie's knowledge and experience was outstanding and helped us through the negotiations. Her guidance through the negotiations and subsequent inspections and requests was top notch. Marie kept us updated throughout the entire process, from contract signing to settlement and even after. We couldn't be happier with the process and outcome of our home sale. I honestly believe Marie's steady hand and experience kept my anxiety of a home sale and move to a minimum. If you're looking for an agent who has your best interests in mind Marie Lalley is the right choice.

Stacey Fowler

Being first time home buyer’s it could be have been very overwhelming, but having George with us every step of the way made it pleasurable.

Kept us informed of new listings and was ready and willing to set up a walk thru for us. He always kept us informed of what was going on once we had an offer accepted. If we are ever in the market to buy something else he will be the one I call.


You could not have told me when I left Vanessa a voicemail in April of this year regarding the idea of selling my home, that I would not only sell it, but also gain a friend.

I knew from the first time she said sat at my kitchen table to discuss my options, she was an honest, knowledgeable and definitely a “No Pressure Realtor.” She told me her thoughts, advised of what I should do before listing and we went to work. We worked together but even when there were things that arose that I thought I would handle independently, she was right there asking how she could assist. When the home inspection revealed a septic issue, Vanessa did not back away. She worked her magic and provided resources to see how we could continue to move forward. With every date and time a contractor and/or county inspector was scheduled to show up she was there. As big as this issue was, I never felt alone in my decision-making, nor awaiting the outcome. Vanessa Gill not only listed my house, she walked this path with me - every step of the way. I’m so happy I followed my gut and mentioned her name to a dear friend, who confirmed, “she’s good people.” I am also forever grateful that I met her and will say again, I consider her a friend! SOLD!!!

Lisa Walker


Almost a year of dealing with our pickiness & indecisiveness & she always showed us the perfect homes for what we were looking for. Not to mention the relationship/friendship we’ve built with her along the way. Our family adores her!

Theresa Moriis

Jaymie has done a fantastic job helping me find a home and get settled in.

She's very thorough with everything she does and provides great advice for various things.

Rachel Anderson

I am beyond thankful to Laura for working with us to get our dream home in St.

Mary's county. When a property line issue arose a week before closing I fully anticipated that closing would be pushed out at least a couple weeks. She reached out to every connect she has in the county and got it taken care of properly within days. Needless to say we closed on time. When our parents experienced something similar it took three months to resolve with another agent. She knows the area, knows what it takes to get an offer accepted by sellers, and she was always on top of everything that needed to be done. I would 100% go with Laura again if we ever had another real estate need. Thank you thank you Laura.

Whitney Sanborn

Thank you so much for taking your time to help us with our new home search.

All the times we have gone out to look at homes and you still are sticking with us. Keep looking for us , you have been great and so helpful. We look forward to finding our home with your help. Thanks again for ALL the hard work. B


We met George Klein through Zillow after several attempts to connect with a highly regarded, “boutique” real estate agency in the Solomons area were ignored.

I think it must have been divine intervention because George turned out to be exactly who we needed to successfully find the perfect place to call home in the Solomons area. He wisely started with asking what was important to us in a home and developed what was essentially a “checklist” of wants. Throughout the home search, George helped us to stay focused on “checking the boxes,” knowing that we would probably be disappointed if we settled for something less than our ideal. We are very happy with the outcome of our search and feel like we have a true friend in George. He met our needs and exceeded our expectations for a real estate professional but also treated us like family.

James Morgan

My experience with O'Brien property management was top notch!

Their rental agent was very attentive to my requirements and made sure to only show me houses he knew would suit my needs. The property manager Rolland was always respectful and very quick to respond should I have any questions. 10/10 would recommend!

Connor Oswell (Google Review)
