Tim O'Brien Owner/Broker In Charge
Tim O’Brien knows how it feels to want to own your first home. More than 30 years ago, on the advice of a mortgage lender, he learned first hand how to change his own financial picture into one that put him in the driver’s seat to be able to afford his first home. “I’ll never forget the feeling of getting those keys at the closing”, Tim remembers. “And I want to help others feel the same way.”
This entrepreneurial self-made businessman has learned the ropes from the inside out. With a work ethic most would be envious of, Tim started out as a Property Manager. After showing signs of higher abilities, he was quickly promoted to Assistant/Agent and then obtained his Real Estate Broker’s license to become a highly successful Broker. Being self-sufficient at an early age taught Tim the importance of being talented, and using that talent to help others.
Remembering his own experience, Tim enjoys working with first time homebuyers to help them realize their home ownership dreams. He is a certified HUD Specialist, and a member of The Neighborhood Assistance Corporation of America's (NACA), a nonprofit corporation whose goal is to stabilize neighborhoods and maximize homeownership opportunities for working people and families. Tim’s willingness to help all types of clients, including those considered subprime borrowers, has earned him a solid reputation, and not just in Wake County. Traveling to nearby counties such as Johnston, Harnett, and Franklin Counties gives him a broader perspective of the Triangle area and expertise to match. His travels have created a wide client base with many different needs, and of that Tim is very proud.
As the founding Owner of O’Brien & Associates Realty, Inc., Tim’s vision is to continue his unique brand of top-notch client service coupled with sharp business sense.
Tim’s personal interests further illustrate his love of real estate. His free time is spent re-modeling investment homes he has purchased, and with some solid knowledge of interior design & home staging, his improvements prove financially advantageous as well. A fan of all genres of music, Tim wishes he had more time to listen to his favorite, classical music. But for now he is content devoting most all his time to his first passion, real estate… and it is time very well spent!
