  • "Our family’s first Real Estate Transaction with Ann O’Blenes was the purchase of a Rental Home, in 2010, for our daughter. Since that initial acquisition, we have been proud to call Ann our “Realtor of Choice”. In the past seven years, she has shown us 100+ homes. These viewings resulted in a number of home purchases and sales, including Rentals, Renovations, Flips, a Retirement Home, and a 1st Home purchase by our second daughter. Throughout this time period, we have seen many changes in the World of Real Estate, but Ann has remained consistent. Regardless, of the property’s value, she has continued to provide us with exceptional service. She possesses a gracious, knowledgeable, business expertise, that is second to none. Every person involved in one of Ann’s Real Estate Transactions, will be well informed and treated with the utmost respect. Ann O’Blenes is a true credit to Re/Max Dallas Suburbs."

  • "We met Ann through one of her listings and established instant rapport. Although we did not purchase that property, Ann took the time to understand our requirements and kept in touch. Ann learned of a perfect property that was not yet on the market and suggested we consider it. Ann structured an agreement that met the sellers goals, gave us a purchase price below market, and kept the property off a very competitive Dallas market. The deal turned out to be much more complex than anyone expected, but Ann navigated the challenges with a level professionalism and finesse that I’ve rarely seen in business. I truly believe that we would not have successfully closed without Ann. After closing on our new home, we spent 8 weeks doing a full scale remodel using subs that Ann referred. At the same time, Ann listed our existing house, sold it in 3 days, and negotiated a lease back that allowed us to stay in our home until our renovations on our new home were completed. Bottom line - Ann is hands down the best real estate partner we could have hoped for or imagined in every respect."

  • "Ann O'Blenes is a consummate professional, with a unique flair for negotiating a transaction in which both parties feel they've gotten the best result. We enjoyed working with Ann both as a buyer and a seller. As our listing agent, she gave us strategic advice on how to maximize the value of the home we were selling, and it sold within a week! As a buyer, Ann worked patiently with us over the course of many months until we found the perfect home for our family, and then worked alongside us throughout the entire process, ensuring a smooth and seamless closing. Ann's personal sense of style, intrinsic knowledge of quality finish-out, and her legal background gave us great confidence every step of the way. Her tireless dedication was deeply appreciated as we know we were not the easiest (and certainly not the quickest!) clients to work with. We enthusiastically recommend Ann O’Blenes and Performance Partners."

  • "Ann has represented us both in buying and selling two homes; the sale of our parent’s home; and for both our children on the purchase of their first homes. Ann is truly knowledgeable of the market and was very thorough and professional in representing us for both purchase and sale. Her honesty and integrity is invaluable. Ann is a delight to work with and we have been extremely satisfied with all of our transactions. We highly recommend Ann and her team."

  • "Ann O'Blenes is an outstanding realtor. She has assisted us in buying and selling properties and has always given us great advice. As an attorney, she is especially good a negotiating for you and helping you avoid potential issues. She also is great at advising you on what you can do to make your property more desirable to potential buyers, and she has contacts that can help you achieve your goals. We highly recommend Ann to serve your real estate needs."

  • "I have had the pleasure of knowing Ann O'Blenes for over 15 years She has been my business partner in either buying or selling 4 homes. I use the word partner because that is truly what she is. She goes above and beyond with her knowledge, insights, and expertise in the real estate market. She also is more than willing to share her network of highly qualified connections for all things related to buying, selling, financing, remodeling, etc. In my most recent purchase she brought me to several older neighborhoods that I didn't even know existed. The day I found my total "fixer upper" she was there within 20 minutes helping me with a vision for what the house could become. I couldn't be happier with my purchase and Ann's help in making this home so special. Over the years I have referred many friends to Ann and they have all been more than thrilled with her dedication and professionalism. You won't find a better or more knowledgeable broker/real estate partner in the DFW area."

  • "Many years ago a trusted friend suggested that my husband and I contact Ann OBlenes for help in selling our home in Frisco and purchasing a new home. That was the best advice any one has ever given us! Ann listed, marketed and sold our home in a week and she was able to help us negotiate a great deal in a not so great sellers market. She also found a home for us to purchase that was not even on the market yet that we loved and ultimately bought with her representing us. We not only consider her our Agent but our friend and we would not trust our real estate needs to anyone else."

    Laura Lovelady

  • "Ann has an acute understanding of the underlying drivers of value in what moves a home to sell. She has an amazing awareness of markets which she couples with relationship cultivation. We hired her to sell our home and it was completed in less than 10 days after we followed her recommendations for readiness. Using her relationships we found a new home not even listed yet!"

    John Lovelady

  • "It is with pleasure that we recommend Ann O'Blenes as a real estate agent for any individual or family searching for the ideal home for their unique situation. Ann was our neighbor near our very comfortable 3,800 square foot home, until on a whim, we found a much larger home that we wanted to see. Ann, knowing that we were just browsing, took us to see this other home anyway. One thing led to another, and we decided to launch a full-scale home search.
    Ann had an initial meeting with us and took diligent notes regarding our specific needs in a single family home as well as our budgetary limitations. She is highly talented technologically and made excellent use of the relevant search engines and real estate databases to quickly find us a variety of homes for sale. She did not waste our time with homes that were out of our price range or not in line with our needs. A master with contract negotiations, Ann proposed a deal that would satisfy both parties. Throughout this home buying process, she also managed to sell our home for an excellent price. She knows the DFW Metroplex like the back of her hand. There is nothing that escapes Ann’s attention when it comes to property for sale in this area.
    We find Ann to be a highly attentive agent, almost as if we were her only customers, although we know that was not the case. She returned all phone calls and emails the same day. We never felt neglected or unimportant. She is also highly personable with an engaging personality. We are pleased to recommend Ann O'Blenes to anyone looking to buy or sell a home."
