eXp Realty South Carolina Testimonials

Phil is extremely pleasant to work with, but don't let his calm demeanor sway you from how aggressively and diligently he works as he sells your home.

We were extremely happy with the job Phil did as he sold our home. He was knowledgable, helpful, and timely. We could not have been more pleased.

Phil Romba is a very diligent, friendly and accommodating realtor in the state of South Carolina.

We've known Phil for about two years beginning with our search for a retirement home. At that time we did not know the devoted time he would spend with us on our quest. Since our move to South Carolina last month in March of 2018 from the northern state of Michigan a friendship with him has developed and we hope that our encounters will last a long while. Phil exhibits the true nature of southern hospitality.

Brian is a great agent.

He communicates very well which is important when buying a home. I tried other agents but Brian was the only one that seemed like he actually wanted to help. Do yourself a favor a call him if you're in need of an agent.

Travis Gearhart

Not only was Brian my realtor but also an outstanding neighbor for the past 5 years!

He sold my house quickly. His knowledge is on point with the housing market. He answered my many questions very professionally. Any referrals I need for work on the house we’re just as outstanding as he was. If you want your house sold painlessly and professionally call BRIAN O’NEILL!!!!

Melissa Mast

When my husband and I decided to buy our first home we wanted to work with someone we could trust.

Not being from around this area a friend recommended Brian. He lived up to all of our expectations and then some. This being our first time looking at houses, I had no idea what to look for but Brian helped me and saw things in the houses that I would have never seen. We were also in some what of a hurry to find a house and Brian was extremely patient with us. I was calling, texting and emailing him almost daily with new houses that we wanted to take a look at. Being the summer months, houses were gone as soon as they were listed so we were getting a little frustrated but Brian kept reminding us that we would find our perfect house and we did. After helping us find our perfect home he was there through every step after, with the negotiating and all the inspections. Brian made this whole process go by so much smoother than I thought it would be. I would recommend him to anyone looking for a new home!

Jennifer Fuentes

My husband and I were extremely impressed and highly satisfied with Mr.

John Briley. We were totally new to the area, so John really had his hands full with us! He was so knowledgeable of every different area that it really helped us in determining where we wanted to plant ourselves. His expertise during the entire process never once went unnoticed. John was always readily available to listen to any questions or comments we had. Once we decided on a home, his negotiating skills were impeccable. Not once were we ever worried or concerned that John didn't have our best interests in mind! John definitely went above and beyond in making sure my family found the absolute best home to settle in, while always fighting for us every step of the way

For a first time home buyer, Brian was great to work with.

He is very responsive and always takes the time to make himself available, no matter the time of day. The characteristic i most appreciated was his patience, candidness, and, for lack of a better term, non-pushy style. Not only did I gain a realtor, I feel as though I also gained a friend. Having said that, I highly recommend Brian O'Neill to anyone in need of professional assistance during the process of searching for a place to call home in the Greenville/upstate, South Carolina area.

Ryan Nichols

Brian is a great realtor, but most importantly, he is a good, honest person.

Not only did he find the perfect home for us to move into, he also helped us get through one problem after another in selling our house. He was great to work with!

Joy Justice

Brian was a pleasure to work with.

A truly great person. I will recommend him to anyone that I looking to buy or sell. Brian made the buying process extremely easy. Thank you

Steve Ebert

My wife and I are delighted to give Brian O’Neill, The Tattooed Agent, a glowing 5 star review.

At the beginning of our research into buying our first home, we were overwhelmed and a little apprehensive about the process of home-buying. We were paired by a reputable veteran home financing company with a realtor the first time around who was laxidazical about helping us find a home. We were unimpressed and lacked the excitement that buying your first home should entail. After doing a little more research into other possibilities for realtors I stumbled on Brian’s website. I was very happy to see that he specialized in finding veterans homes and knew the ins-and-outs of VA home loans- which can be very taxing. Meeting Brian in person was terrific! He was very thorough in explaining to us the process of buying a home; everything from the details of the inspection to some tips on the regular maintenance of homes. My wife and I were super impressed and signed with him that day. Knowing that we were on a timeline with our apartment lease we were able to give some time to searching the market to find the best fit for us. Brian sent us updates on homes that had just come on the market daily as the market in our area is pretty competitive to keep us as up-to-date as possible! We looked at several homes before finding our dream home! It was in our price range, great location to jobs, and perfect for our very first home. This is the part of the home buying process that we were thinking would be stressful with communicating with our loan officer, who is out of state, and realtor, and signing documents. Brian made it as easy as possible for us and we were able to sign documents electronically and communicated everything to the loan officer on our behalf! Closing could not have gone smoother! Our sellers were terrific in providing details of the house to us and all paperwork was settled in 45 minutes!! Enlisting Brian to help us with the process of buying our first home was one of the best decisions that we could have made! I would highly recommend him to anyone, whether VA or not, looking to buy their first or last home.

Scottie Smith

Brian is the most knowledgeable, laid back, and diligent agent that I've ever had the pleasure of working with.

Would recommend him to ANYONE!!

Justin Rivers

Brian is a professional, knowledgeable realtor with a no pressure attitude who made what could be a very stressful process much more pleasant.

I highly recommend Brian and if we ever move again, he will be the first person we call.

Kelly Martin

As a first time home buyer, I was nervous, basically confused about the whole process.

I found Brian, after talking to a couple different realtors. He responded very quickly, and explained and answered all my questions. He got me in fast, when I wanted to see a house. After looking at some pretty crappy houses, he pointed me in the right direction, and I found one I love! Closing come a long, and I believe without Brian's help, I would not have closed when I did, which would then have been hard to reschedule vacation, and get moved, all that. He makes stuff happen, plain and simple. I'd send anyone his way, who wants to buy a house!

Daniel Stucker

Phil was an excellent REALTOR.

My family moved here from NY and his knowledge of the area and explained the differences between NY and SC property buying. When we found the house we wanted to buy he worked quickly to get a bid together. He recommended an excellent lawyer and inspectors which made us confident in our purchase. He was always available when we had a question – and as new buyers, we had many! I'd highly recommend him for your REALTOR!

S. Habina

We where new to the area, and John helped us find the perfect home!

He is very knowledgeable about the area of the homes that we viewed. We would highly recommend John Briley!

Mary P

This is my first home buying experience, and Brian made it comfortable and relatively painless.

I hope I don't have to buy/sell anytime soon, but if I did I would certainly use him again.

Rob Ianuario

He was wonderful to work with.

He stuck through with us through a rough patch with a home purchase due to seller issues. Very nice and always had a smile.

Kristine H

Brian was recommended as a realtor to me by a friend.

After meeting with him and working with him throughout the home-buying process, I found he was dedicated to helping us find the right home. Any questions we had, he answered promptly and thoroughly. I would recommend Brian O'Neill as a realtor to anyone wanting to buy a home.

Steven Sweat

I was very impressed with John from the beginning.

He approached me and asked if I was interested in selling my house. At first, I was not but after the death of my wife, I called John and told him I thought I was ready to list the house and try to move on. John was very professional and went over all the details of listing and actually verified the price to show me what I should list it for. John is a go getter. I think the house was on the market for three days and we received two offers. John guided me through the process from start to finish. I was always able to reach John with questions I had or to check on the process. I highly recommend John as a professional and realtor.

Mike G

My husband and I were relocating from Texas and didn't know much about the Greenville area.

Phil did a great job of introducing us to the 'lay of the land' and the surrounding neighborhoods. He quickly fine-tuned the search to help us find just the right home. He also did a great job guiding us through the process, making sure we knew what was needed to ensure a timely and smooth closing. We highly recommend Phil!

P. Woodhull

I would recommend Phil to anyone looking to sell or buy a home.

He sold my home and helped me purchase my new home. He is a true professional and very knowledgeable . He was a pleasure to work with.

S. Lane

From the initial conversation of listing our house, we knew we'd made the right choice in choosing John as our listing agent.

John really listened to us as clients and provided very sound advice without being pushy. He is very knowledgeable and responsive regarding any concerns we had. He was always easy to reach and available any time we needed him. The average time on the market for homes in our neighborhood was 60 days---John had ours under contact in 12 DAYS!!! I cannot recommend him highly enough. He is professional, caring and really knows his business!

Jessica C

This is your guy.

My only "issue" with Brian was that he marketed our house so well, it went under contract in less than 24 hours. My wife and I had not began to look at other properties yet, simply because we had no clue our home would sell so quickly. Seriously, Brian does a great job and I used him from past experience with him. He does a great job and is always available to his client. Thanks a lot, Brian!

Matthew J. Pruitt

Kelly is hands down, the best realtor you will find in Greenville, SC!

As a first time home-buyer, I had millions of questions, and many nerves as I headed into the process. Kelly was there every step of the way, patiently answering my questions, giving her honest opinion, and guiding me through the process in a seamless fashion. She was encouraging throughout what can be a very stressful process! She was always available and put my priorities first. She is in-tune to your wish list and without you even knowing, takes careful note of exactly what you are looking for. For example, as silly as it sounds, my dream was always to have a house I could hang an American Flag out front. We would go to houses and I would say, "you know, I can't hang an American Flag there..." When we finally found my house (one that you could hang a flag off of), during my closing unbeknownst to me, she had her husband go hang an American Flag off the front of my house, so that when I got the keys and went to the house, my dream had come true. It was so thoughtful and made the day very special. I am forever grateful for her and trust Kelly wholeheartedly to help you find exactly what you and/or your family are looking for.

Erin H.

We met Brian through a good friend.

Right from the start he asked to meet with us to discuss the process of buying our first home. We had no surprises because Brian provided lots of clarity and guidance along the way. He follows through with everything he says and keeps you updated. I would highly recommend Brian for selling or buying a home! He is awesome!

Kristin Whitworth

Phil went above and beyond from the time we met him… Until now.

He still keeps in touch and is always happy to offer advice. As for the actual sale and purchase... Our house sat on the market for six months and then he came sweeping in when the original realtor gave up... and had our home sold in a month. And it wasn’t over then. He showed us so many homes, and even when we made a decision, he wanted us to see a few more just to be sure we were happy. Still didn’t end. He stayed with us all through the closing process and even discovered an error on the mortgage officer’s part that would have had us postponing our closing at the last minute. Because of him our mortgage closing went through as it should have. I can’t say enough good things about Phil. He is the only real estate agent we will ever use!

S. Denne

Brian is amazing!

We have used him twice as our realtor in Greenville. He first helped us to purchase our first home and become first time homeowners. When we needed to relocate, I didn't even question who to call. Brian helped us sell our house in less than 48 hours - over asking price. If you want someone that is willing to go the extra mile and is extremely personable and reachable, look no further. He is always so attentive and informative. If we move back to the Greenville area, we would call Brian again without hesitation!

Jeremy Whitworth

Brian is great to work with for both selling and buying.

He is readily available at all times for questions/comments/concerns!

Noemie Boily

Brian does an extraordinary job!

I highly recommend him to anyone who needs a real professional for their real estate needs. He is very thorough and prompt. He made our first time buying a home go very smoothly! I couldn't be more happier! Thanks Brian for a job well done!

Chrissy Wilkins

Brian O'Neill made our experience pleasurable with no stress.

From the start, he listened to our wants and needs in purchasing a new home. Brian certainly takes all the hassle out of the search for you. We were updated immediately on new listings hitting the market. Brian displayed integrity, sincerity and reliability. Yes, I recommend Brian O'Neill

Jacki Meade

I selected Phil Romba with Carol Pyfrom Realty as the Realtor to assist me with the sale of my house.

Phil was very professional, pleasant, positive, attentive and responsive. He provided excellent service throughout the entire process.I also had the pleasure of spending time with the Owner and Broker-in-Charge, Carol Pyfrom. Carol has extensive knowledge and is dedicated to the mission that she and her team provide outstanding service to their clients. I am extremely appreciative to them for the superb service I experienced.

A. Garrett

We listed our home with Brian O'Neill and sold it all with in a month.

He was very easy to work with and helpful considering this was my first time selling a home. We will def. use Brian again when we are looking or selling.

Leanna Risigarigai

The process of selling and buying a house, simultaneously, can be incredibly stressful.

Brian navigated hurdles, accommodated a seller with who works third shift, kept us on track and helped us find exactly what we were looking for, making everything as simple and stress free as possible. Thankful for his professionalism, diligence and helping us begin a new chapter in our lives with a smile.

Ally Hilliar

The O'Neil team work amazingly fast to not only get our house ready to show but also to obtain a contract within just two weeks of being on the market.

They were able to point us in the direction of contractors that could make minor repairs and worked closely with the buyer to make sure we had completed everything that the buyer requested be done to the house. Thanks for all that you guys have done. I would absolutely refer the O'Neill's to anyone and I absolutely will use them again for our next sell/ Purchase.

Brandon Brown

John was great to work with.

He was very knowledgeable about current market trends and focused on properly marketing our home. He is very laid back and was available day & night throughout the process. He sold our home in less than two weeks for top dollar and we couldn't be more appreciative of his hard work.

Jeremy C

Choosing Brian O'Neill while an out of state buyer proved to us that Brian has the type of professionalism, work ethic and integrity that it takes to get the job done.

We also used Brian again to sell a property and he came through with flying colors with marketing, sales incentives, etc. Brian has earned our highest respect as a great realtor and a wonderful human being. Choose Brian and his team and you will be more than satisfied.

Jan Childs

Brian's a pro.

He's courteous, reliable, knowledgeable and gets things done. He also got us in touch with a mortgage company and a closing attorney. Will recommend him without a doubt. He's also a great human being. He does a ton of wonderful things for the community and works closely helping Vets find homes. Less

Janice Childs

This was my first home, so I had no experience or knowledge about the home buying process.

John was extremely patient with me. He answered all of my questions and concerns. I trusted his judgment when looking at homes; he always had my best interest in mind. When we first started looking for homes, I was having a hard time finding a lender to meet my needs. John was able to put me in touch with the right person. Also, John saved me about $400 on an inspection for the first house that I put an offer on. He was proactive about an issue and the inspector was able to check it first, thus saving me money since the inspection only took about 10 minutes.

Amber C

Jennifer is great to work with.

She listens to your needs and is very understanding to your needs and works hard to find what you are looking for. We had the best experience buying a house working with Jennifer.

David & Emily

Brian was very helpful through the whole process of buying a house.

He was very knowledgeable on the whole process. All the paper work was explained in detail, and also helped a great deal during the inspection and repair process. I would recommend him for sure!

Josh Yale

John was very professional and helpful with the selling of my condo.

He was always available to answer my many questions. I highly recommend using John as your realtor.

Kim E

Wow, what an amazing and caring realtor, no games, helped out so much.

Very very professional. A+++++++++ service

Mike Purcell

Working with Jennifer was a pleasure.

With her help, it took no time at all to find a house that was exactly what I was looking for. And even though I had a fairly short amount of time before I wanted to close on the house, she helped me every step of the way in order to reach that deadline. With her help, my first experience looking for a home to buy ended up being a good one.


Brian O'Neill is amazing person AND real estate agent.

He genuinely cares for his clients and you don't find that very often. Don't let the tattoos fool you... Brian is very professional, extremely approachable, and an all-around great agent to have on your side!

Karly Sears

"When you make total trust in someone, without a doubt, in the end you will get two results: - either a person for life or a life lesson.

" If I had the possibility of putting 10 stars to him I would put them without hesitation. Not being an american and buying a house for the first time in a country you did not originally come from was a nightmare but Brian made it into a fairy tale. His approach, his advice and his professionalism immediately seduced us. A relationship of trust was born and I could not do without him even after the signature. Thanks again and Good luck.

Anthony LaForge

Easy to work with, very efficient, dealt with everything from beginning to the end.

Shane Ponds

Very friendly and personable.

While we were looking for a home. He would help us by pointing out the good and bad of a house. He really went the extra mile to find us our perfect home!
