John did a great job with the sale of our condominiums from the start to the closing.
Growing up in the Midwest I spent many summers in Lake Geneva. I have many fond memories enjoying the relaxing time spent boating on Geneva Lake or hanging out in the town of Lake Geneva. Now that I am a realtor with Shorewest I would like to help you find those same memories.
My background before real estate is in architecture and interior design. I have a BFA in Interior Architecture from NIU and my MA in Historic Preservation from SCAD. Because of this I am able to walk my clients through any property demonstrating to them the potential of the subject property’s current value and future as their “dream home.” Another trait I take from my previous life in the Corporate world is my ability to work with a variety of personalities. Sellers have an emotional attachment to their homes and sometimes this can overshadow their decision making. My job is to take that emotion out and guide them to making the right decision to sell their home. Similarly, buyers experience the same roadblocks. My job is to weigh the pros and cons for each home they preview so in the end, they've reached the best decision when it comes to that dream house. Also, like most people, I love a good value. This comes into play when presenting an educated offer that is the best for you and your chosen home.
So whether you’re in the market to sell your home or buy a new home or possibly both, I would welcome the opportunity to work with you in what is possibly the biggest decision you will make in your lifetime.

John did an excellent job. I would use him again for buying or selling a condo.
John was awesome handling our real estate transaction. He was always available no matter what time of day it was. Any roadblock that arose and there were a few, John was quick to resolve them. I would highly recommend John to anyone looking for a professional real estate agent to help with the sale or purchase of their home. Gary and Sandy Sibilsky
It was a pleasure working with John
I was very happy working with John OBrien and Shorewest. John answered my calls or text messages immediately. If there was anything I didn't know or understand, John explained it in terms that I could understand. I felt confident when I sold my property that it was right and fair. Thank you John for your help.
John is very professional, a good listener, energetic, and knows how to market and sell. He would be a good choice for seller or buyer as he understands his role and job functions.
John was simply great. We would be honored to do business with him again anytime. He sold our condo in record time.
John did an amazing job at representing our property at Timber Ridge lodge in Lake Geneva. He kept us informed every step of the way, was prompt, communicative and assertive. He actively marketed our condo and had 2 offers, resulting in a sale on under 90 days.
Our experience with John O'Brien was excellent. This is the first time I have experienced selling a home, with the passing of my mom. Anytime I would send John a text, email or call him on the phone, John always got back to me right away. John always kept my husband and I informed of anything going on with my mom's home. I received texts anytime my mom's home was being shown with the date and time. I told John that if my husband and I ever decided to downsize with our home, we would definitely contact him to be our agent.
