NYS/NJ Licensed RE Salesperson Global Property Systems NY 10401311538, NJ 1867480
I grew up in Haworth, NJ as part of a very large family. I went to St Joseph’s grammar school in Oradell, St Joseph’s Regional HS in Montvale, Notre Dame University (BA ’75) and Fordham University (MSW 92). I live in the unique river village of Piermont NY with my beautiful wife Toni. We have bought and sold houses over the years in Haworth, Ossining, Croton, Peekskill, Piermont (twice!), and Warwick, and I am thrilled to help others do the same. I was the chairman of the Piermont Planning Board and a Trustee of the Village, and I am fascinated by the nitty-gritty detail involved in finding the right home in the right place at the right time for the right price. I am an advocate of knowing our local history and of historic preservation and creative reuse. I have worked energetically with State and local authorities to support environmentally sound actions while helping homeowners maximize the use and enjoyment of their property. Before I became a real estate agent I had a varied career that included working in educational publishing and working as a therapist with children and young adults. Toni and I have 6 children (3 each from earlier marriages) and 13 grandchildren.

“I can’t speak highly enough of my experience with Vincent O’Brien.  Vincent guided me through every step of the process, right up to closing.He gave me a list of tasks to focus on in preparing my home to show.  His connections for a carpenter and painter were excellent along with bringing in a stager to highlight the beauty of my home! Vince surpassed my expectations and I would highly recommend him to my friends, family or anyone needing a great realtor.”

Vince helped my husband and I find our first home and we couldn’t be more satisfied with our experience with him. He provided very valuable insight at each house we visited, pointed out positives and negatives that we wouldn’t have thought of, and gave us as much information as possible on each property and how they compared to other properties in the area. He’s extremely knowledgeable and we’re so happy we had his expertise on our first home buying experience. Thanks Vince!

Vince made our home buying experience easy and painless. He worked with us on our schedule, was always easy to get in contact with, and provided a variety of suggestions and options as we tried to make the right decision on our home. Thank you!!

Vince was a great asset to us during the home buying process. He was informative when we had questions, but not to the point where he was telling us what to do. He provided the information that he knew and if there were still questions that he didn't know he always said "I will look into that and get you an answer" and he did just that. Vince was quick to pick up on the type of homes that we liked and what we did not like and he made sure to point us in the right direction. When I had a question or concern I could always reach out to Vince and he always answered. He kept me on schedule with friendly texts and emails. During the home buying process he gave us a great list of resources and recommendations and made sure that he was there every step of the way. He even made sure that everything was running smoothly with all the documentation that was needed. I highly recommend Vince to anyone who is looking to buy.

Vince came highly recommended to us by a friend who had used him on a recent home purchase. We are so glad she did! Vince was extremely helpful, transparent, and reliable throughout the entire process and was available to answer questions at all times. He was wonderful to work with and not only cares about his clients but also his community. We are so happy to be his new neighbors.

As first time home buyers we really appreciated Vince’s patience, kindness and knowledge of real estate in the area. With COVID and a host of other challenges facing us this year it was great having an agent that listened to our needs and walked us through the intricacies of searching for and buying a home. Vince went above and beyond for us and advocated for us wherever possible. Thanks for helping us buy our dream house Vince!

I highly recommend Vince. Working with him felt like a true partnership and we valued his views and knowledge of the local markets. He gave honest opinions and wasn’t pushy or wasn’t all about just getting a deal done. We trusted him throughout the process and that made our lives much easier.

I look forward to working with him again if we ever need to move or sell the house!

As first time home buyers, we had many questions throughout the home buying process, Vince was a great source of information, experience and patience. His attention to detail in regards to what we wanted and needed as a young growing family was refreshing. From start to finish, Vince was professional, encouraging and helped us to move quickly and secure our perfect home once we found it. Little details like remembering my birthday, and always making our toddler feel included were a special touch.

"Vince was instrumental in helping us find just the home we were looking for! When listing our co-op, he featured the best parts to get it sold quickly. We sold it to the first person who saw it! He truly had our best interests in mind throughout our whole search."

For the past year Vince has been on the road every Saturday, helping me on the difficult journey of 1st time home ownership. Thanks to Vinces' knowledge of housing market and New York State counties and specially house structures, I was able to finally achieve my dreaam- owning my home house instead of renting. Thank you Vince. I got your number on speed dial for future endeavors

Mr Vicente O’Brian exceeded my expectations.
His professionalism and knowledge, combined with his personality is a great recipe for success (as I imagine he is in his profession). I can't imagine selling my property without consulting Mr O’Brien. He gained not only a happy customer but also a friend. I highly recommend his services.

The process of finding the ideal functional home, right price, right location is a huge challenge
Vince was able to closely identify similar properties that would meet my needs, in the neighborhood I sought.
He provides ongoing literature on loop holes to beware of, getting the right mortgage for you, understanding the changing interest rate and house value un tr market.
He was easy to talk with and always readily available to assist.

Educator with the NYCDOE
When my wife and I first began looking around for a new place to live, we had absolutely zero experience and knowledge of what it takes to buy a home, as we had only lived in apartments prior. We weren't even sure we were ready for it, and most of the realtors we'd spoken with didn't bother asking us any questions or explaining much of anything. The first time I spoke with Vince, he patiently listened as I explained where we were in the process, and just as patiently took his time to explain the ins and outs of looking for a new home. So it was a no brainer once we were finally ready to put in an offer that we would ask Vince to represent us. He worked closely with us all of the way, always taking the time to explain whatever we needed to know, and we are now proud new owners. I highly recommend Vince.
