Kind, honest, and fun to work with
I cannot say enough about Eileen. She was so wonderful to work with and truly made me feel like she had my best interest in mind throughout the entire process. This was my first purchase and she made it as pain free as possible. She was kind, honest, and fun to work with. Her knowledge in, and comfort level with, the process stood out to me, as did her genuine desire to help me get exactly what I wanted. I cannot thank her enough!!

Helped us find the right home…sight unseen
Eileen was such a pro – she helped us find just the right home (and sight unseen, as we were moving cross country quickly!) She was communicative, wonderful to deal with, kept all on track throughout the entire process and truly had our best interests in mind. We’d recommend her to anyone and everyone.

Helps you find a home that you are happy and in love with
We met Eileen and her associate, Cindy at an open house in Brisbane. We were looking for a home in the Peninsula since we pretty much gave up on finding a home in San Francisco. We were ready to move out of the city with our first child on the way. From the start, Eileen and Cindy were very proactive, but not pushy. From our first meeting, they made sure they understood what we wanted. Being first time homebuyers, we really appreciated how helpful and patient Eileen and Cindy were. They answered all of our silly questions and even spent over an hour to go over a disclosure packet with us explaining all the terms. We really appreciated Eileen’s guidance especially throughout the sometimes emotional, and thrilling but tiring process of searching for a home. Eileen has extensive knowledge of the Peninsula area and if she didn’t know something, she would do her research and get back to us with a quick turnaround. She worked hard for us around the clock to make sure we were set for making an offer on a home. After the marathon of open houses over 4 months, we ended up really falling in love with Pacifica and Eileen helped us close on the home of our dreams with an ocean view from every room. We even got the home under asking! Being a resident of Pacifica herself, Eileen’s extensive knowledge of the area really helped us make a great decision to move to Pacifica. It was such a warm welcome from Eileen to the neighborhood. We love our new home and look forward to raising our little girl in this beautiful city. If you are thinking of moving out of San Francisco to Pacifica or anywhere in the Peninsula, definitely reach out to Eileen and Cindy. They are really great people, and go above and beyond to help you find a home that you are happy and in love with.

Knows the local market very well and tailors to meet our needs
Eileen has been more than helpful all the way from the first meeting to the last (hum, shall it be the last? she is such a nice person!). She knows the local market very well and could tailor our needs so well. We have been really fortunate to work with her and would definitely recommend her to anyone looking for a house. She was recommended by a friend of ours, and she has been above expectations. She helped us on every front, and could tell us when to wait, when to rush, when to pay attention to some critical steps. I am sure we would not have had our house today if it was not with Eileen.

Found the house that was right for us and we certainly couldn’t have done it without Eileen’s help
My husband and I met Eileen at an Open House for one of her clients. We live nearby and were just starting to think about looking at houses. After we left, we both remarked how great it was speaking with her and her colleagues. She wasn’t pushy at all, unlike some others we had met at other open houses. About a week later, she called me on the phone and asked if we were at all interested in the house. Again, not being at all pushy. The house was a bit out of our budget so we weren’t interested in that but after chatting with her a bit and then talking it over with my husband, we decided that she would be the perfect fit to help us find a home…and after about 3 months, she did do just that. During the process, we must have looked at almost a hundred houses; some with Eileen and some on our own. We also put in several offers before one was accepted. In any case, she was great with answering any of our questions in a timely manner. She was also very in tune with our situation, budget, etc. and would always give honest and straightforward advice or answers to our questions. In the end, we found the house that was right for us and we certainly couldn’t have done it without Eileen’s help. We very much appreciate her going above and beyond everything we expected!

Instrumental in helping us find and buy our home
This review is long overdue! Eileen and her associate, Cindy Lo were instrumental in helping my husband and I find and buy our home in April. Their knowledge of the area and the current real estate market was beyond helpful. Eileen and Cindy were super to work with. They answered our questions (and we had many!) and were very responsive. They were always pleasant, professional and honest. We are very fortunate that we met this fantastic duo at a random open house. In less than 6 weeks after that fateful meeting, we found our home and closed escrow! If you are looking to buy a home in the peninsula, do yourself a favor and give Eileen and Cindy a call. You won’t regret it!

A no-nonsense, communicative, hardworking realtor
Eileen is great. She helped us get into our first home in a very competitive bidding market. She stuck with us through many losing offers and got us into a beautiful home that checked all of our boxes. She was there through the entire escrow period to make sure that the deal would not fall through. If you are buying a house on the Coastside, and especially in Pacifica Eileen is a great local resource. She has many local business and real estate relationships that proved valuable to us during our bidding and search process. She is also local to Pacifica and really understands the community, the housing market and housing construction here. She was 100% hustle for us through the whole process and still continues to be a almost a year after our home purchase.
I was recommended to Eileen through a friend and other friends who had worked with her on their properties and now I am sharing the wealth on Yelp. If you are looking for a no nonsense, communicative, hardworking Realtor to represent you as a buyer or seller Eileen is a great choice.

Clearly explains how the process works
Eileen has been a great help to me in selling my property. We closed the sale in April 2017. I didn’t have any previous experience in selling real estate. At the start, Eileen was wonderful in clearly explaining how the process would work. Then she consistently kept me up to date as we worked through the process. I never had to wonder what was happening. Her experience in the Peninsula was a great resource. (Particularly in Pacifica.) Eileen proved her worth to me throughout the entire process. She also provided contacts for other services that were needed in my case (Staging. Outdoor power washing). I would enthusiastically recommend Eileen to any of my friends & neighbors.

In-depth knowledge of the local area
I just bought my first ever house with Eileen. She found me a fantastic place, off market, in Pacifica. It was very helpful to have someone with in-depth knowledge of the local area and listings. She spent the time to find something that was a good match for me. And she was on top of everything through the buying process – through negotiations, inspections, and closing. It was a pleasure to work with her – and I highly recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell a home.

Guided me through every step
I worked with Eileen to purchase a mixed use property. She found me a property immediately, she educated me about the process and about the offer price, which was accepted. Eileen guided me through every step and there were some twists and turns. In the end, we got it done and I am very pleased. I will definitely tell all my friends about the great service I received and I will be using Eileen again for all my real estate needs.

Negotiated a deal to buy and sell simultaneously
Eileen negotiated a deal where I bought and sold a house simultaneously. It made the moving process much less stressful. Once I owned my new house she was extremely helpful with suggestions of contractors. She even helped me measure my windows for blinds.

Provided our family invaluable service

Excellence is her standard
I cannot recommend a realtor more highly than Eileen O’Reilly. I’ve worked with several realtors over the years, and the majority has done a great job, however, Eileen really raised the bar in comparison. There was never any doubt that it was always about our best interests, and not simply “closing the deal”. While she was juggling many clients, we always felt as if we were her only client. We were initially impressed with her research and positioning advice from the start, and that level of competence, work and detail remained constant past closing, even showing up the day of our move to take the last trash away! Her marketing materials were well designed and positioned, with no expense spared. She was in constant communication with us and jumped in as a “project manager” to help us prepare the house within the tight timeline we gave her to list the property. All of her recommendations were spot on as evidenced in an initial offer significantly higher than comps and asking price, and we were in escrow within a week of the listing.
Generally I do not leave comments in the event that the service I experienced proved to be a fluke, and not the individual’s standard client service, but after working with Eileen, I’ve come away understanding that our exceptional experience is her standard for all clients and have recommended her to everyone I know.

Eileen is a great real estate agent
Eileen helped me buy my home in the Bay Area. Though I was on a limited budget and couldn’t compete with other offers in my first choice areas, she was in it for the long haul with me to find in an area and house that worked. I appreciated her encouragement and empathy (“we’re in a marathon, not a sprint”) and she helped me negotiate a price on my house that was less than our original offer. She has been checking in on me after the purchase. She really cares about my whole experience and the relationship.

High Quality Service, Professional and Friendly
Eileen was referred to me by my close friend. I was impressed the first time we met by her kind attitude and professionalism. She brought a bunch of papers for us to sign and explained each page. Her intention is not only to sell our condo for the right price but she also helped me deal with my emotional problems concerning my husband who was sick at that time. Two months after we met, my husband passed away and she was one of the first to console me. Since then, she calls me to find out how I am doing. She knew I was by myself, working and preparing the condo for the open house. She not only did a very professional service, but she became my close and compassionate friend. From the first day up to the closing of my condo she worked very hard. She will go the extra mile to help me if there was a last problem to solve. For the relationship, thank you so much and God bless you.

Helped Me Buy A Home
I have dealt with different realtor in the past and I have to say Eileen is the best. Eileen is very professional and treats her client with respect and how you want your family to be treated by someone you just met. Her dedication and her knowledge of in and outs of realty business makes me feel secure in dealing with someone who i just met when i was looking for a place to live. Safety of her client is also her priority. She drives me around to my prospective neighborhood when I was still looking for a house making sure that is a safe place to live. She knows her way around in the Peninsula and South Bay area.
Eileen’s dedication to her job makes her unique in dealing with her client. She keeps me abreast changes or any update in my transaction. She gives me an advice in helping me acquire my place. Her guidance and patience makes it easy for me and my husband during the stressful process from the beginning until the closing time. I would definitely use her again and will not hesitate to recommend Eileen to any friends of mine in looking for a house in the future.

Putting your interests first
In the Bay Area if you want an agent that will get it done with your best interest first- then call Eileen. All others are just agents with limited time for buyers under the $M range.

Got my dream home with Eileen’s help
After a couple of failures at these days’ crazy bidding wars, I saw this charming place online but couldn’t get any information. Eileen happened to call me at the time and I told her about my interest. She arranged for me to go see the place the very next day, and helped me submit an offer immediately. Since it was a short sale, there were many applications and negotiations with the bank, Eileen’s experience, knowledge, negotiation skills and hardworking spirit really helped a lot. Thanks to her, I finally got my dream home and it was an awesome deal. I’d recommend Eileen to any homebuyer who’s trying to compete in today’s housing market.

It was my good fortune to find an agent like Eileen to guide me through the house hunting process. She listened when I told her my likes and dislikes and then she went to great lengths to find such a property. Eileen’s friendly personality, her knowledge of the housing industry and her eagerness to help, made the somewhat intimidating experience a day of fun. On this visit to California, I didn’t find my “dream” home, but I am confident I will get a call any day now from Eileen saying it just came on the market and to get on the next flight. I highly recommend her and urge any person wanting an agent who will have their best interest in mind to give her a call. Eileen is the best!

A dedicated professional who put our needs first, Eileen O’Reilly worked tirelessly to help us navigate the fast-paced Bay Area real estate market. She was right on top of everything through the whole process. It was both a surprise and a joy to find someone who still understands and practices top-notch customer service. In addition to being honest, knowledgeable, and hardworking, Eileen really took the time to understand our needs. From actually answering the phone to asking questions to help us make more informed decisions to just being a down-to-earth great person to have on our side, we are so glad we found Eileen.

Faced With Overwhelming Options
There are so many options available to you when selecting a realtor, and it can be overwhelming when you are buying or selling a home. I highly recommend working with Eileen O’Reilly from Keller Williams Peninsula Estates located in Burlingame, CA. Eileen is a top notch professional who has tremenmdous listening skills which allow her to understand your specific desires and to serve you to the best of her ability. Eileen has lived in the Bay Area for the last 30 years so she comes to you with a tremendous amount of local knowledge. She is well informed and competent in commercial and residential listings. She has a calm demeanor and is patient with you as you go through the steps of buying or selling your home. Eileen assisted us in the sale of our home in Burlingame as we conteplated our move to the valley after my husbands retirement. Eileen walked us through each step of the selling process with a great deal of knowledge, as well as making herself available to us when we needed to finalize the process. Eileen was able to successfully negotiate an incredible deal with the buyers agent, allowing us to receive top dollar for our home. We could not have been happier with the outcome. We have since relocated to the Sacramento Valley, but are yet again using Eileen to buy a rental property on the East Bay. Her on-going intuitiveness and understanding of exactly what you are looking for makes it so easy during what can be a very stressful process. We thank you Eileen and we wish you much on going success.
