Pat O’Brien had been in the real estate industry for 15 years. It all started when opportunity knocked in the form of an open storefront on an ideal corner in downtown Boyne City.

“I saw an opportunity to approach real estate in a different way than conventional offices,” Pat explains. “I didn’t want to be dictated to by offices out of the area that don’t know anything about local real estate.”

Going independent with Pat O’Brien and Associates was a good move for Pat, now in his twelfth year of managing his own brokerage. The agents who work with him also agree that it has been wonderful to be part of a dynamic, energetic “indy” team. And in 2017, the O’Brien Charlevoix branch merged with another long-standing Charlevoix team to create a new Lake Charlevoix, Charlevoix County dynamic on the sunset side of the lake. 

Indy team, take two!
