Amy O’Brien - Donahue Real Estate Company

About Amy O’Brien

Hi There-Thank you for visiting my website!
The most important reason I began my career in real estate is very simple:  When my husband and I bought our first home at 25 yrs of age, we found the process confusing and overwhelming; we were self conscious about our lack of experience.  Afterward, I became determined to learn as much about the Buying and Selling of Real Estate as I could, and prevent my family, friends and future clients from experiencing the same anxiety we had.  Not long after, I found what I like to call my "second family" at Donahue Real Estate! If you are actively looking to a buy or sell your home, I promise to LISTEN to you and COMMUNICATE with you! All of my clients (past and present) will agree that I'm extremely organized, detailed and communicative, and just as importantly, up to date on our area market. I value your trust and I will not let you down!
If you are considering buying a home, I'd love the chance to meet with you and guide you through the entire process. We'll go over the Pre Approval process, your search criteria, and what you can expect each step of the way.  Once that's been established, we'll start the process of viewing homes until you've found the home that you love! If you are considering selling your home, I will provide you with a Comparative Market Analysis of your home and show you how it compares to other Active, Under Agreement and Sold homes that fit your home's criteria.  I will go through the selling process in detail. Once your home (and most importantly, you!) are ready to list, I will be putting your home out there and exposing it to as many qualified buyers as possible through print advertising as well as the internet; utilizing the Multiple Listing Service and other real estate marketing avenues.
I have worked with Buyers and Sellers in Dedham as well as North Attleboro, Norfolk, Medfield, Millis, Medway, Milford, Framingham, Hyde Park,Bellingham, Walpole, Norwood, Canton, Westwood, Wayland, Natick, Lakeville, Fitchburg, Milton, Weymouth, Maynard, Braintree, Quincy, South Boston, Dorchester, Jamaica Plain, Charlestown, Roslindale and West Roxbury.

In 2011, I was honored to be named Donahue Real Estate's Agent of the Year!
I am a lifelong resident of Dedham, growing up in the Manor neighborhood, and attended the Greenlodge Elementary School, Dedham Middle School and Dedham High School.  I now live in the Riverdale neighborhood with my husband Joe and our four children: Joey (age 13), Danny (age 11) Luke (age 7) and Molly (age 6).



"...We always felt like we were your only clients and never felt funny about asking you questions.  We're so happy that we found you and know most of this wouldn't have been possible without you.  Best of all, we're just happy to have met such a nice and fun person and to have made such  wonderful new friend."

"Amy O'Brien is THE best real estate agent ever! She made me and Ken feel like we were her only clients the whole time we worked with her. For months (literally!) all we did was go see houses with Amy - she always made time for us and she made it fun!  She found us houses to look at, set up so many appointments and did thorough research on TONS of places for us.

When I saw the house that I loved online, I emailed Amy and she got us a viewing the next day...we made an offer shortly there after and have been in the house of our dreams since June. She is the best!! Amy was there with us throughout the entire offer process (calling with updates), she came to the final walk thru, the inspection and the closing. She even gave us our first housewarming gift....and dropped off pumpkins for our first fall in our new home! She still checks in with us. Amy really is a one of a kind Realtor - and she is one of my favorite people! "

With Amy's help, I was able to purchase my dream home for myself and my two young boys.  Amy not only educated me throughout the entire process and kept me informed, but supported me as a friend.  I highly recommend Amy to work with-you'll never feel anything less than her priority!

Knowing a second baby was on the way, Amy found us our home in less than 4 weeks!  Her knowledge of the area and step by step approach with us made an otherwise difficult process run very smoothly.  She listened to us, and didn't forget about us after the sale-updating us on changes in the town and events we should know about for our kids.  We appreciate her hard work and she is definitely a part of our family!

"As first time homebuyers we absolutely loved working with Amy and could not have imagined our home buying process going any smoother. She was always reliable, extremely knowledgeable, and professional.  Amy went above and beyond to answer our questions and explain all of our options every step of the way. We never had to worry about anything.  From the time we decided we were ready to look for a home and throughout the negotiations, inspection and signing of the papers we always knew exactly what to expect. Amy was always responsive and on top of everything. She knew what we needed and paid attentiion to every detail. Amy made sure all parties on our end, and the sellers end, were kept in the loop and met given deadlines. We are so glad we had Amy working with us and on our side while we bought our home."

"For anyone looking to sell their home, I highly recommend Donahue Real Estate. When it was time for me to sell my first home I asked friends and family about Real Estate agents. Donahue R.E. came out on top. My expectations where to sell my home in maybe 3 to 6 months in this sad economy. My home hit the internet at 10am on a Thurs. By 1:30pm we had our first viewing. On that Sat we had our first offer. Sunday we had our 1 and only open house (5or6) more offers. Monday another offer arrived. More than 1 bid came with offers to meet or beat other bidders over the asking price. We passed papers the next month. Christmas Eve to be exact. Are you going to find another agent that works harder than Amy O'Brien? Dream on!"
The Abbott Family
"Amy O'Brien goes above and beyond what other real estate brokers do.  She is intelligent, hard working, and knows how to price her listings according to the most current market conditions.  An example of this was when one of my clients was selling their home. It was on the market for at least two years before Amy was brought in. Once Amy was the listing broker, there was an agreed to offer within three weeks!   I would highly recommend her. "
