"Claire helped me to buy my condo recently. Throughout this process, she was persistently available and showed very knowledgable for the market in this area. Her negotiation skills for the price was extra-ordinary. I found her so thoughtful and very reliable that these characteristics make her the best in her job. I strongly recommend her without any hesitation."

"I cannot say enough positive comments about Claire as my agent. Initially I was a tenant of the property that I purchased. Claire helped me secure the property as a renter and subsequently as a buyer. Throughout my communication with Claire, she listened to my requests/hopes regarding the negotiation, she was always accessible and responsive, she answered my questions/concerns, and she was pleasant and enjoyable to deal with from beginning to end. If you are looking for a home to either rent or purchase, or are planning to list a home, contact Claire - you will be happy you did."

"Claire is amazing! I’ve never trusted a real estate agent like I trust Claire. I know she has my best interest at heart. She educated me on the real estate market on the west side where I’m thinking about buying a home in the next few years. She knows I’m not quite ready to take the plunge, but she still spent time with me and helped me envision the right neighborhood for my family. She understands the west side and each area in it, so I don’t have to spend months googling things and asking around about schools and safety. As soon as we’re ready, we’ll be calling Claire to help us buy and sell!" - Bridget

"I’ve purchased and sold a few homes to date, Claire O’Connor is by far the best real estate agent I’ve ever worked with. She was responsive, detailed and organized. She made herself available 24/7 and is very well informed about the houses/neighborhoods she is representing. She was completely supportive and gave spot-on advice during negotiations. I highly recommend her as your next realtor." - Alexandrah

"Looked at a few homes in the Venice area with Claire whom was beyond helpful! Not only about available properties for sale, but filled us in on local bars, great restaurants, nice shopping, and even furniture stores! She could be a local city guide! She also went over our budget with us explaining key features to reconsider so we can make our purchase happen by the end of year. Would highly recommend!"

About Claire

A California native, Claire has lived and worked internationally but has always found her way back to this beautiful place we get to call home. Whether it be mountain biking in the Santa Monica Mountains or walking down the street to Will Rogers Beach to open water swimming, Claire takes in all that the west side of Los Angeles has to offer.

With ten years of professional experience managing and negotiating high-value government contracts, Claire brings professionalism and efficiency to her real estate career. Prior to working in real estate, Claire managed Pediatric HIV programs with the Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation living in Rwanda and Burundi and was traveling to other countries in sub-Saharan Africa on a regular basis. She has mastered the art of negotiation through her dealings with high-level bureaucrats and diplomats regarding US foreign investments. She brings that required tenacity to her real estate negotiations on behalf of her clients.
