O'Brien Realty The Best of Southern Maryland Testimonials

Tell Us Your Story

Great Service.

Very Knowledgeable

Belinda T.

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.

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!

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.

I have worked with Treasea over the years and found her responsive, knowledgeable and trustworthy.

I can always count on her to be my best advocate and I would recommend her any day.

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.

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!!!

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!

Wes Wilkes

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!


Jaymie is the right realtor for you.

She listens, she learns your dynamic and your needs. She is quick at scheduling your visits and quick at doing paperwork for negotiating. She is super knowledgeable at doing the right moves for a perfect negotiation. She is the right Realtor!


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!

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

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.


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 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.

Dinda Timperon (Google Review)

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

The staff of O’Brien Realty are responsive, respectful, and best of all, understanding.

Elaine Chen

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

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!

Catherine Fontaine

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)

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.
