We feel so fortunate to have had Tyler’s help with our home buying process. We felt like he handled every detail as though it were for his own home. He was always thinking one step ahead, and he did a excellent job of keeping us updated and informed along the way. We moved from another state, which added an extra level of complexity, and Tyler went above and beyond to help us have a smooth transition.
A short note to thank you for all of your efforts throughout this transaction. Thanks also for your gift (having the house cleaned on our behalf!).
We’ve experienced a number of purchase and sale transactions over the years and I have to recognize you and your efforts for being one of the more involved and proactive realtors with whom we’ve dealt. You not only kept us informed every step of the way but also took on a lot of the smaller items in our absence. Again, thanks for everything you did to help getting the property sold.

Thanks to Tyler, we recently closed on our new home in Dripping Springs. Tyler spent many Saturdays helping with our search. He knows the area, is professional and is easy to work with. He offered opinions and helpful suggestions to improve the properties. I highly recommend Tyler!

Tyler is an agent that goes beyond just doing his job. We purchased a home while living out of state and Tyler helped arrange and supervise home inspections, document delivery and prep. He also helped us to get to know the area, suggesting professionals to work with, nearby shopping areas, etc. Tyler also can be counted on after the sale. He has assisted us in following up on a home inspection item and suggested strategy for getting the original home builder to correct an issue we were having.

I just closed on my new house last weekend. I could not have asked for a better realtor! Tyler is extremely knowledgeable, meticulous, and caring–a veritable professional. I recommend him highly!
I’d been living in Austin less than a year when I set out to buy a house. I knew I wanted to live in South Austin, but wasn’t very familiar with the vicinity. Tyler took the time to show me around different areas, and sent me relevant articles & information.
My house search took 6 months. During that time, Tyler got to know my “style”, what I was looking for in my house. He asked many questions, and really listened to me (a rare quality these days!). Tyler was proactive about sending me listings he thought I’d like, and we set out to look at houses once a week, on Fridays. I learned a great deal on a number of topics during that time! Tyler’s training in architecture and experience with construction (he also builds houses) are invaluable to a home-buyer!
One thing I appreciated about Tyler is that he’d always point out the flaws of a house– whether it was the commercial space in the back, or the road noise–to help me with my processing. He pointed out many things I probably would not have noticed right away. Better yet, he’d come up with solutions whenever possible–he always seemed to have ideas on how to ameliorate the problem–very resourceful!
Tyler is a skillful negotiator and good with contracts too. I signed more than one contract before I found the right house. I’m a pretty detail-oriented person–I’m the type who reads all the documents at closing! Tyler patiently reviewed several different contracts with me and answered my myriads of questions. He followed up promptly when he didn’t have the answer.
Most importantly, Tyler is a kind and generous person, easy-going and pleasant to be around. He always had a little something to offer–like a booklet on TX plants to help me get started on my backyard. He really went over and above when, as a housewarming gift, he offered to re-glaze my window at his own expense.
Tyler O’Brien is the guy you want to have by your side when making a big purchase decision like buying or selling a home!
You were my rock!!! I owe you so much more than can ever be expressed in words. And I can’t wait to show you the house when it’s done! I’ll be in touch.
Thanks Tyler!! We love our new home!! We still have lots of unpacking to do, but we are getting there!! Last night was the first time we stayed overnight because we just got our water turned on yesterday. At first, we weren’t too fond of the shower in the master bedroom, but we are loving it!! We love the little seat in there and there’s so much room.
We know we found the perfect house and we wouldn’t and couldn’t have without your professional expertise and personal opinions and support. We feel very blessed to have you has our realtor and friend. You being so organized and always being on top of things made this whole process less stressful for us. You made us feel really comfortable during the whole process and we think of you as a friend of the family, not just our realtor. We can’t thank you enough!! Whenever you have time or you are down in our neck of the woods, please give us a call so we can hook up for lunch or dinner.
I had my formal hearing yesterday and cannot thank you enough for providing me that research. They thanked me and congratulated me on “my” research. They lowered my appraised value from 319 to 290…unchanged from last year. Thank you SO much for your help with my hearing. I know I chose the right REALTOR to assist our family.
