We first met Brian & Sharon when we were looking to buy a house. They spent time with us and gave us good insight about each home we looked at. Things changed and we ended up not buying a house, but selling. Again, Brian & Sharon were insightful and helpful. They were upfront about the challenges we faced in selling but supported our decisions all the way. Once our property went under contract they Brian & Sharon went to bat for us. We had some rocky moments (as you always do when dealing with real estate) and, again, the advice we received from the O'Connells was helpful and prompt. My husband and I felt incredibly blessed by the work that Brian & Sharon did. They went "over and above" for us again and again. I can't recommend them highly enough! Less ... More

We came in contact with Brian and Sharon on the phone after searching through Zillow. At first we had contacted a few other agents and were not at all pleased with the impressions they gave us. Finally we made one last phone call and we couldn't have been more thrilled with the agents who answered. Brian and Sharon O'connell took care of us and went above and beyond to make sure we found the perfect home. I believe we looked at 12 houses if not more over a 3 week span and every time we met up it was nothing but fun and excitement. They made our experience as first home buyers absolutely incredible and never once left us in the dark about anything. They took into consideration all of our wants and needs and made it a point to make us their priority. We could not be more happy with our home and the journey it took for us to get it. We love Brian and Sharon and could not be more thankful for their dedication and patience they had for us! Less ... More

Outstanding Real Estate Team! Brian, Sharon and Tiffany were instrumental in selling my house. I retired from the military and moved out of state. My first realtor listed the property and it set for 6 months. My second realtor listed the property then suddenly retired after having my listing for 3 months. I then did some extensive research and found a real estate team (Brian and Sharon) that not only listed properties, they were also assisting people buy houses. To me, this meant my house had more of a chance of being shown. I was right! Brian and Sharon even held an open house for other realtors in their office to showcase my house. They also assisted me in finding a lawn care person and a reasonably priced contractor to fix the little items at closing. Every Monday I was sent a report of how many times my house was shown and also comments the prospective buyers made. This made it easier to make a price reduction when they suggested it. They were very professional, knowledgeable and responded to my needs immediately. If you want a realtor that is very involved every step of the way, Brian and Sharon are the realtors to sign with!!!

Brian & Sharon are top of the line realtor who took our listing out of a six month stagnation and sold in within a couple of months. They responded to emails and texts right away and kept us up to date with every development during the sale process. If I can read the mantra of their success then it is transparent process with their clients, use of technology and the superior marketing they do for your house. They have some unique skills which makes them effective to bring more home seeing?s online and in person. When you use their services you are multiplying forces to sell/buy your home. We closed on time (within 21 days after first offer) only because of their team?s knowledge, negotiation skills and responsiveness. Sharon, Brian and Tiffany were very helpful in every aspect of the home selling procedure. If you are seller in Cumberland, no need to look further and you should contact them immediately. My friend recommended me to them which we really appreciate and highly recommend them to anyone. Less ... More

Brian and Sharon made it possible for my husband and I to buy our first home! We were still living in Arizona and had never been to the area, and Brian and Sharon took our wish list and hit the ground running. They went above and beyond to make sure they found us a home that we would love. They even steered us away from some pricier homes because they knew that we wouldn't be happy there -- even though that meant they lost out on some commission. We bought our house before we even saw it, and there have been zero surprises because they were so thorough with their videos, photos, and reports throughout the process. I recommend Brian and Sharon every chance I get! Less ... More

Brian and Sharon are an incredible team, and without their quick and diligent effort our transition to the area would have not been possible. We are extremely pleased with Brian and Sharon. From across the country they responded to each question we had in a timely manner and with honesty. Brian provided us with the needed insight for our first home buying experience, while Sharon's networking abilities connected us with accurate facts and figures before, during, and after the sale. We have already recommended Brian and Sharon to everyone we know coming to the area looking to buy a home and will continue to do so. Less ... More

Brain and Sharon were hands-down the perfect match for my family and our first home purchase needs! Our journey started all the way out in California, actually. I contacted Brian and Sharon with basic information on what we were looking for in the area. They responded immediately and already had some homes they thought we would like. They really hit the nail on the head with their suggestions as they were all very exciting for my wife and I to view. Brain and Sharon kept in constant contact during our drive across the country and we hit the ground running once we arrived. Thanks to their efforts, our list was narrowed down to a handful of houses and we were able to pick a winner right away! They absolutely bent over backwards to get us the best deal possible on an incredible home. It is truly amazing what they were able to accomplish for us! From the initial email to the final handshake, Brian and Sharon were magnificent. They always had time for our questions, listened to our needs and had a lighting fast response time. And I can't forget to mention their assistant, Tiffany. She is incredible! She made sure all the details were perfect the first time around. She was a life-saver! I cannot thank them or recommend them enough! Less ... More

My husband and I didn't really get to know Brian and Sharon all that well - but that's because they found a house for us so dang fast! One day of looking, they took us to our first 6 choices and then a seventh one - their choice (which happened to be the one we bought). Sharon was great during the negotiation process, Brian brings his relaxed and fun personality to the table...30 days later we closed! Brian and Sharon were on vacation during our closing, but called to make sure all was going well and to congratulate us. It's been two months since we moved in and they haven't forgotten about us! Brian stopped by to see how we were just this last week. I would highly recommend this couple on communication alone. I loved knowing I would get answers to my questions as soon as they were able. Much appreciation to you both for a smooth first-time home buying experience. Less ... More

I was searching for a home when I randomly called Brian because I was interested in a house he represented. I was amazed at how honest and forthright he was, he didn't sugarcoat anything, so I started going through him for any house I was interested in. I was out of state, and so He and Sharon put a LOT of legwork into helping me find my home. They went to many homes, took lots of pictures and video, and always gave their sometimes brutally honest opinions. Anytime I had a question they or someone on their team (Tiffany) had a prompt response and if they didn't know the answer they researched it for me (This happened quite frequently as I am a first time Home Buyer). They eventually helped me find my current home, and I am very happy. The price they got is amazing for the home, and I will definitely use them in the future. Less ... More

Brian & Sharon O'Connell were the best people we could have asked for to help us when we started looking to buy a home for the first time. We are so grateful for all the help they provided and continue to provide. If you are looking to buy a home, especially for the first time, we would recommend them. We give their number to everyone we see looking to buy or sell a home. When we started looking homes we had no clue where to turn. We sent out some request to look at homes I found online and that linked us to a few different Realtors. After receiving many emails and text from different ones I received a simple and very friendly email from Brian & Sharon O'Connell. Unlike all the others who were being very pushy at getting our business and seemed to only want to get us into the first house they could quickly, the email I received from them seemed like they genuinely cared about wanting to help us find the best fit for our family. Instead of just offering to show us the one house we requested to look at, they asked what we were looking for and offered up any information on what they think would be good for us to look for. They then found a lot of homes for us that we would have never found on our own. They did a lot of work on their part to help make sure we found what we were looking for. They took us to look at a lot of homes and never once seemed frustrated with us and what seemed like was going to be a never ending job for them. They supported us in our concerns with different locations and helped make us aware of things that we hadn't even thought of looking for in some of the homes that would have been bad to notice after the fact. They genuinely wanted us to find a place that we would love and be happy in. They were very professional when needed but also spoke to us as if we were family. Once we found a home we wanted they handled everything and made sure to keep us very informed in what was going on and what we needed to know and or do. It was a very quick and painless process thanks to us having them here to help. Even after we moved in they came by to check on us multiple times and when we had questions about trying to get settled in we were able to contact them and they were very helpful. We are so glad we decided to go with them and if we ever have to sell our home or look for a new one we will go through them again. Less ... More

We had been in the same home for 17 years and decided it was finally time to buy our forever home when we met Brian and Sharon. They worked for us, tirelessly, in good and bad weather, and even when we would call at the last minute to do a walk thru of yet another interesting home we wanted to see that we came across surfing the internet. There were times we felt guilty calling them and asking them so many questions about prospective properties, but in the end, we developed not only a working relationship, but one that reached much deeper that made us feel as if they ALWAYS had our backs from the walk thrus all the way through the closing of our home we now own. They were knowledgeable and efficient in every aspect of our real estate process and we HIGHLY recommend them to everyone we know! Less ... More

My house had been on the market for over a year with another realtor with absolutely no results. He kept wanting us to come and renegotiate, which was hard since we live out of the area. The best move I ever made was to pick up the phone and call Sharon and Brian. From that moment on, the sale of my house was utterly effortless on my part. They did absolutely everything for me, allowing it to be a pleasant experience rather than a nightmare.

we 1st contacted Brian and Sharon thru e-mail since we were overseas at the time. they asked us a few questions on what we wanted/looking for and they created a program to let us look at houses and add favorite ones and delete ones we weren't interested in. Once we arrived in the area, we met and they treated us wonderfully and had a whole day put a side just for us so we can learn the area as well as look at homes. The 2nd day was the same, with the adjustments they made based on the comments we had made on day 1. We found our house on the 2nd day of looking. They =made the process so smooth and we were in our new home within 2 weeks or so. They still continue to keep in touch and letting us know they are there for what ever reason we might need.

The best part about working with Brian and Sharon was the team aspect they brought to the home buying process. They were able to find a home that not only had everything and more than we needed but was priced well below appraisal. They were able to link us up with all the resources we needed to make the process as pain free as possible. The only thing they didn't do was help us move in, and I'm sure they would have if we asked!

Last year I decided to venture into the housing market and purchase my first house. My knowledge of the house buying process was extremely limited and mostly non-existent. In my initial web search I found Brian and Sharon's name and email during a local "Real Estate" agent web search. So, naturally I decided to send an email and ask a few questions. Within mere minutes (I'm talking less than five minutes), Brian had reached out and called me on my cell phone to address all of my initial questions and concerns. Over the next two weeks, Brian and Sharon took me to houses of which I had personally mentioned to be of interest, or houses in which they had viewed as fitting my requirements and/or personality. We looked at five houses and then they "hit the nail on the head." They had found a house that fit all of my requirements. The entire process (initial contact, house search, loan, and closing) took approximately four weeks and I was in my house. I'm not sure that this review does any justice to the quality and ease of purchase that Brian and Sharon provided. If you are in the market for a new home, call them. You won't regret it. Unless, a smooth, simple, fast, and pain free home buying experience is something that you would regret. Less ... More

Brian and Sharon are a fantastic team to work with. I was overseas when I decided to start house-hunting. I chose the O'Connells based on the reviews that I read on Zillow. As a former military member, Brian is in tune with the unique situations that soldiers bring to the process, and is perfectly complemented by Sharon. My emails or calls were returned in better than reasonable time. I'm still pretty certain they don't sleep or take a day off. I chose a few homes that I was interested in. The O'Connells checked them out, giving me the ups and downs about each home. They sent me videos of each home, and a few others that they thought I would be interested in based on our conversations and the homes I picked. In the end, I bought one that they had suggested. The video highlighted all the areas of concern, and they were instrumental in negotiating repairs and closing costs. Additionally, they even took the time to explain and guide me through some of the steps of home buying that I was not clear on. Would I recommend Brian and Sharon? Of course. There is no doubt that I would seek them out for any future real estate transactions for friends, family, or myself. Less ... More

I just closed today on a house that Brian & Sharon helped me and my wife find. We started our home search in California after being notified we were going to move back to the Ft. Bragg area. After debating on whether to buy or rent again we decided to buy. Brian and Sharon helped us find a house while still in California and put an offer on it. We gave them a list of homes we were interested in and they went out and made videos of 7 or 8 different properties some of which we didn't even select. The one we chose was in fact one that they selected because they thought it met our criteria. Throughout the whole process they were responsive and ready to answer questions at all hours even while on vacation. Me and my wife put our trust in these two agents and we were not disappointed at all. Highly recommend. Less ... More

I worked with Brian purchasing my home and he is an amazing person to work with! He actually listened to what I had to say about a home he was showing me and would use that information to find more homes for me to view. He was available to show them on my time also which was awesome being active duty. I've dipped my toes into homebuying before but never followed through. Brian made it so easy and effortless that all I had to do was say "I like this and I don't like that" and he found me exactly what I was looking for in about 2 weeks. His whole team is set up for one stop shopping so you say what you want and then they will make it happen. Highly recommend!!! Less ... More

Helped me buy home
When I started the process of looking for a house to buy I came across several sites with multiple realtors. The first thing I saw about Sharon and Brian?s page was all the reviews they had stating how wonderful they were and I immediately thought they were all fake. So I was sort of skeptical at first, but I figured since they had all these fake reviews and no one else did they at least cared about how they looked on the internet to people. So I gave them a call and spoke to Brian who I though was a little too receptive over the phone so I was even more skeptified (may not be a real word) Then we meet and I have to say the first thing I realized was not only were all the good reviews I read about Brian and Sharron real but these had to be the nicest most genuine people I?d ever met. They took me all over Fayetteville looking for the ?perfect house? and each and every time I found something wrong with the houses they were showing me they were happy to move on to the next one without complaint. Then I found that ?perfect house? in which Brian and Sharron seemed to be working harder than my loan officer to make sure I closed on time and that I knew how much I was responsible for bringing to the table on closing day. Which I found out from Brian that I was supposed to bring $2000 more to closing than I was initially anticipating the day before I was scheduled to close. Brian and Sharron did something in that moment that I am sure the majority of real estate agents would not have done and donated $1000 dollars of their hard earned money towards my closing cost. This is just one of the many things that set them apart from the rest of the real estate agents in Fayetteville. In conclusion, Brian and Sharron are two of the most professional real estate agents that I have had the pleasure of working with to find a home, and because of their hard work and perseverance I believe they are the perfect people to find anyone their ?perfect house?

We came into the process of purchasing a home with very little knowledge of the process or what we needed to know to make a intelligent and informed decision. Brian and Sharon were always there to answer our questions and help us out whenever we encountered an obstacle. We came out of the process with a much better knowledge of what we were doing and were constantly kept in the loop during the entire process. I would say that we will work with Brian and Sharon O'Connel in the future but I believe that they found us our dream home. THANKS! Less ... More

We live out of town, and contacted Brian and Sharon to help us sell a house in Fayetteville after having a less-than-satisfactory experience with another Fayetteville realtor. Brian and Sharon were like a breath of fresh air -- they jumped in with both feet running, helping us fix up several areas that needed attention, making excellent proactive suggestions, adding staging touches that we would not have thought of, and doing a thorough job of marketing the house. The house ended up with an offer on the 6th day after being listed. Then beyond the offer, they stayed on top of everything to make for a smooth closing. We highly recommend Brian and Sharon -- they are one great team! Less ... More

Brian and Sharon are a great team. They are very knowledgeable about housing trends in the local area, assisted us with staging the home for photos, and are experts the selling process.

These guys are the best. When we told them what we were looking for they stayed 100% in our price range and found us everything we wanted in a house! The process was so enjoyable and easy with them. They were always there to answer our questions and went above and beyond to get everything done that we wanted/needed. There is no one else we would recommend to buy a house with! He is very knowledgable about everything that is a bit different buying a house as a veteran (dealing with the VA and USAA) Thank you for the amazing experience and the AMAZING house!

In my move back to North Carolina, Brian was indespensible in assisting me in the purchase of my home. Even in the short time frame for my purchase (closed in less than 30 days), Brian located and showed me over 15 properties that met my requirements. He negotiated the exact terms I wanted and helped facilitate the extremely fast closing on the property. I highly recommend him to anyone looking to buy a house in the greater Fayetteville area.

Brian was a pleasure to work with. Being first time buyers we expected it to be fustrating and a hassle, but it definetly was NOT! Brian made everything very easy to do and very quick, he listened to exactly what we wanted, let us see the same houses on our "yes" list over and over again and still showed us more until we found "the one"!.. He is very knowledgable and got us a FANTASTIC DEAL on our house, assesories, and no closing costs.. He is BY FAR THE BEST REALTOR IN FAYETTEVILLE/FORTBRAGG AREA! we highly reccomend him! Less ...

Brian was able to explain the process of selling our house as we had never sold a house before. He was able to advertise our home on zillow and other sites and adjust as necessary. He sent me weekly emails on how many people viewed our house on line. He was always available to answer all of our questions and returned calls promptly. He was able to negotiate the price when the buyer offered much less than our original price. Very nice first time seller experience.

He was extremely knowledgeable of the areas we were looking in and provided valuable insight into prospective homes. He showed us several different homes and answered all of our questions until we found the home we ultimately purchased. His honesty, flexibility, understanding of our needs, responsiveness and follow-up throughout the process made the stress of home buying so much less.

My husband (military) and I are first time home sellers. We interviewed 3 realtors. Brian stood out among them as the most honest and forthright, experienced and knowledgable of the area, and proactive in his marketing. We signed with Brian and sold our house 3 months later. During that time, Brian kept consistent communication as he guided us through each step. I felt comfortable with him throughout the process and highly recommend him.

Brian was a pleasure to work with. He was very professional and went above and beyond all our expectations as a real estate agent to get the house sold in a timely manner. For a long distance business relationship, Brian was always available and responsive to our needs. He took over for a real estate agent that had our home for months without getting one thing done and he was able to come in and sell our home for the asking price and made sure all the repairs were done properly in a very quick manner. I would highly recommend him for local or long distance real estate transactions. Less ... More

It's a pleasure for me to recommend Brian O?Connell. When I first started looking to buy a home in the area, other agents would not put forth the time to help me find the home I really wanted. I saw Brian on Zillow, and after reading his reviews, I felt that I would give him a shot. I found his preparation and preparedness to be impressive. He offered many options that were within my price range. Whether a home was on one side of the county and the next home on the other, Brian was always willing to drive out and show me the home. In addition, Brian was willing to negotiate on my behalf on a few things that were important to me. He always seemed ready, willing, and able to represent my interests in any transaction.  It is for these reasons that I would absolutely recommend Brian O?Connell when you are looking to purchase your new home in the Fayetteville area! Without him I don?t believe that I would have ever found my amazing home! Less ... More

Brian is a outstanding Realator to work with. Me being a first time home buyer he made sure I was steered in the right direction in every aspect of buying a house. Even helped me explain to my husband everything while he was in another state. Brian made sure that he kept my interests in mind and not just what house he wanted to sell. He compiled a list of all thew things I was looking for before he took me to any house. Brian also hooked me up with a very good VA home loan broker. Brain would go out of his way on numerous occasions to make sure we got into our new home without any hiccups an very little money out of our own pockets. Brian did a outstanding job and we would not change a thing about our new house. We would highly reccomend brian to anyone looking for a new house in the area. Less ... More
