Testimonials
Here’s what some of our clients have said about us!

A year ago, I became the executor for an estate whose beneficiaries were two local charities. The main assets of the estate were two properties - one in Windsor and the other, a lovely cottage with 250 feet frontage on Lake Huron in Bayfield. Selling these could have been overwhelming for me but Justin O'Brien was super from the moment that I asked him to handle the sale of these two dwellings. He immediately came to my house, explained the process, and his strategy for the greatest yield for these charities. He went through the Windsor house with me and made detailed suggestions for the staging of the home over the four day "by-appointment only" viewing. Justin interviewed several real estate agents in the Bayfield area and chose the one that he thought was most likely to get quick solid offers. All of his actions relieved me of so much stress. Both properties sold quickly. The charities received even more money than for what I had hoped. The whole experience of dealing with him was of a professional that I could trust. In my opinion, Justin O'Brien is the best real estate agent one can hire!

We were fortunate to have Jocelyn Brett as our real estate agent to help us navigate through our move back to Essex county upon our retirement. We thought we had an early start, looking at listings a few months in advance, but she cautioned us not to wait too long. Jocelyn was very diplomatic when she realized that our wish list as a couple was not necessarily in sync. When we finally agreed upon a property that we wanted to present an offer on, she was ready with comparables from the area and cautioned us when she could sense our emotions were getting the better of us and we may have been willing to pay more than the house was worth. In the end, she was a great negotiator on our behalf, despite having an incredibly difficult seller. We ended with what we felt was a very fair price and have never looked back. We would not hesitate to use Jocelyn again, and we would highly recommend her to our friends and family. Sincerely,
-Debbie and Denis Lauzon
We met Jocelyn at an open house over a year before we signed with her, and she stayed in contact to see if there was anything we needed. My wife and I felt comfortable with her professionalism, knowledge, and honesty when we hired her to sell our family home. It was a fast process and she was able shatter all of our expectations and present us with an amazing offer. Her understanding of the current market conditions and putting her clients needs first, make her standout above her industry peers. We would highly recommend Jocelyn and the Tom O'Brien realty team as a whole. Yours truly

After some 48 years in our home, the only one we have ever lived in, we decided to downsize and move to something smaller, possibly an apartment. We had never sold a house before, which caused the dilemma of which realtor to use. We made an appointment with Justin O'Brien to provide us with his expertise on selling our home. He was prompt, sat down with us, and fully explained his plan and the process of selling homes. We also were given opportunity to see others that had sold in our area. All our questions were answered and we felt very comfortable with, and trustworthy of, Justin O’Brien. The lawn sign went up. Within a few days there were many families touring our home. Justin's experience proved itself. We couldn't believe the professionalism of Justin. Then, SOLD! Our new journey had begun, thanks greatly to Justin! We would highly recommend Justin O’Brien for your sale and/or purchase of a home. It's your future, make your journey memorable. Thank you, Justin

Jocelyn, Kelly and I can't thank you enough for all of the hard work, dedication and the time you spent in finding us our dream home. We were very specific with what we wanted and in today’s super competitive market you were able to successfully find us the one. After finding our new home we also then needed to sell our old home and needed to do so rather quickly. You made it very easy for Kelly and I to sell the house, you did all the work for us, and we very much appreciate it. Without hesitation we would suggest you to anyone we know who is selling or wanting to purchase a home, you are an expert in your field and we were lucky to have you as a Realtor.
-Dennis and Kelly Woodman
It had been 30 years since we last purchased a home and our original real estate agent had long since retired. On the recommendation of some family and friends, we gave Jocelyn Brett a call. Boy, are we ever glad we did!From the very first meeting we were impressed by Jocelyn’s knowledge and professionalism, not to mention her great personality. She has the innate ability to turn what for us was a stressful time, into an awesome experience. Jocelyn was always available to answer any questions we had and she worked extremely hard to make her schedule fit mine, which between work and travel left very little room. I don’t know how she does it, but her energy seems limitless. Jocelyn also sold our house and again made the experience painless. So, if you are buying or selling a home, you need to call Jocelyn Brett. She exceeded every expectation we had! She is very professional, but also a great person and truly dedicated to her customers. You cannot go wrong with Jocelyn Brett and Tom O’Brien Realty!

Our experience with Ryan Giroux was excellent, so much so that we continue to rely on him for all of our real-estate purchases. He is knowledgeable about the different areas of Windsor and surrounding areas to ensure you are making an informed purchase. He has been great in helping to find us our ideal house to buy and he was equally great when he sold our house. We even recommended him to our son when he purchased his first home. We highly recommend Ryan Giroux for buying or selling a property. His knowledge, expertise, and his professionalism are exceptional for a real-estate agent.

My Husband and I have both bought and sold with Ryan Giroux. He always make the experience pleasant. positive and enjoyable. Ryan made sure we took our time to find the house that we wanted and not to rush into something that we would regret "and there was a few", We found his knowledge of houses and the communities helpful. I have recommended him to family and if we decide to buy and sell again i will contact Ryan.
-Angela and Al
Buying your first home can sometimes be challenging and intimidating, Thanks to Ryan he was able to make the process seem so easy and pleasant while doing it. We could not be happier with our purchase of our first home and we could not have done it without him! He was able to help up find exactly what we were looking for and guide us in the right direction. We could not be any more thankful!
-Brittany and Razvan
Ryan was a pleasure to work with - his confidence and expertise guided us in finding our new home in this hot Windsor market. Ryan stayed mindful of what we were looking for and never pressured us to settle for less. His professionalism is second to none. Highly recommended.
-Bruce and Katherine McLean
Justin has sold our last two homes. Our last home was sold significantly above asking price. We are truly blessed to have Justin represent us. He is the best in the business and you'll never see anyone work harder than he does. He breathes real estate. A true professional who has a genuine passion for both people and real estate. We'll never have anyone else represent us.
