    Satisfaction Rating An agent's star rating is the average of all the ratings of their service.
    "Home"... ...it can mean so many things. It's where the heart is. It's your castle. It's where you hang your hat and put your feet up at night. It's where you grow up. It's where you raise your family. Whatever "home" means to you, Mike is here to guide you on your search and help you find your ideal spot. With a background in communications, Mike will not only help his clients navigate the sea of information, but also truly listen to their wants and needs.

    Mike was raised in the suburbs of Philadelphia and first called Massachusetts home when he attended Boston College. While his professional pursuits took him elsewhere at times, the pull of Massachusetts proved strong as Mike returned to live not once, but twice.

    Prior to joining ERA Realty services, Mike spent nearly two decades as a play-by-play broadcaster, primarily calling ice-hockey games at some of the highest professional levels.

    Mike graduated from Boston College with a degree in Communications and he volunteers extensively with the American Cancer Society.

    Mike was great to work with! As a first time buyer, he very clearly explained the game plan and what I should expect at each step of the process. We quickly got on the same page about what I was looking for, and honed my search accordingly. He was always available for any questions that came up and very responsive over email, text, and phone. He kept me updated with things I needed to know, and worked on things behind the scenes to keep things moving smoothly. Overall a great first buying experience and a great agent to work with!

    Mike was very great to work with! Highly recommend if you are looking for a relator. He was always available by cell and continued to check in to make sure everything was settled. Definitely trustworthy and pays close attention to detail.

    5 stars aren't enough to capture how much we appreciated Mike's representation as our real estate agent. Being first-time homebuyers, there is so much to learn and navigate throughout the home-buying process and Mike was incredibly helpful through every step. Not only is Mike competent in what he does, but he's enjoyable to work with. Based on conversations we had with other friends who were in the home-buying process, this isn't often the case! We shared a lot of laughs with Mike and his overall demeanor helped us remain optimistic through a tough buyer's market. Ultimately, Mike was able to help us purchase our first home!

    I have worked with multiple agents in the past, and I have to say Mike is the best. Very knowledgeable, helpful, and most importantly available always to answer questions. Made my real estate purchase an easy, pleasant experience.

    Mike was absolutely amazing! I did a big, cross country move from Miami to Boston. Once he received my contact information he reached out right away to figure out exactly what I needed. He worked quickly to find me multiple options and started setting up virtual showings for me. He understood I was moving in a hurry and was able to find me multiple properties that fit my needs within my budget. He went to showings for me, walking me around on his iPad as my personal avatar. He tested out all of the lighting and water pressures and got to know exactly what I was looking for in each place to the point that he would just test those things out and show me before I even asked! Mike was always available for calls and texts and got back to me quickly whenever I reached out. He was so easy and fun to work with and was able to handle my big, opinionated family's questions and concerns with grace and humor. Once we decided on this beautiful property he handled all of the negotiations, getting me a stellar deal, the perfect location, and the apartment of my dreams! With moving already being a stressful process, I thought moving across the country would definitely be the most stressful thing, but Mike made it seamless and I'd do it again in a heart beat with his assistance. I definitely recommend working with Mike, know I'll be recommending him to all my friends and family, and if I'm moving again he'll be my first call!

    Mike is absolutely fantastic! Moving to a new area and looking for a rental during a pandemic is super stressful but Mike made it fun and somehow less stressful. He doesn't just listen to what his client's want, but he actually hears them and delivers. Even when things get a little hairy as they can with a booming real estate market like Boston, Mike keeps calm and focused on the end goal. While moving is never fun, I do look forward to working with Mike again when it comes time to purchase.

    Apartment/house hunting can be daunting and exhausting. But once you include Mike O'Brien into your plans, you will have homes to see the next day and he won't stop until you have signed a contract and are happily moving into your home. I had two weeks to find an apartment and within hours of talking to Mike, we had apartments to view the following day and by Friday I had put in an offer. He is extremely dedicated, a great listener, and has more patience than I could have ever dreamed for. He continued to reassure me that my rental would come through, and it did. I called and texted all hours of the day and he was always responsive and helpful. I never would have found my dream apartments with out him. You will not find a better agent than Mike. He is true go-getter and will make your dreams come true with the next home you are looking for!
