Brendon took me through the first home buying process in the least stressful way possible. He is easy to communicate with, friendly, and extremely efficient! I would 10/10 recommend


The O’Reilly’s helped us find our first home in late 2019. New to real estate and Hamilton, Sean made us feel comfortable right from when we first met him. He was always a call/text/email away with questions or houses that we’d spotted. He shared his honest opinions on properties, and at times it felt like house hunting with our own father.
Sean would send us potential houses to view and arranged all the viewings – we were thankful that they did all the liaising with other agents for us. Once we found our home, Sean had all the contacts for a builder, lawyer etc for us and helped walk us through the process of buying.
It was great to have both Sean and Brendon on our team as when one is unavailable the other can jump in!
I would not hesitate to recommend Sean and Brendon to others, in fact our friends are currently working with them to find their first home!
We are very happy in our new house and would not hesitate to use the O’Reilly’s in our future house buying and selling adventures.

Very friendly and helpful. Brendon would send us lots of houses to look at and would organise for us to go and view these. Once we found the house we have now brought he organised for us to view it again before buying it so we could make sure it was the right house for us. Brendon went out of his way to help us. We are now very happy in our first home and have started a family.

The O’Reilly’s have been amazing at selling our house, with a unique layout we knew the house was not going to be for everyone but these guys were very good at marketing our house in a positive way. The O’Reilly’s worked hard to find that one buyer who would love how the layout of our house could work for them like it has for us.  Sean and Brendon have been very professional in any dealing we have had with them and treat us like family which allows a lot of trust.   They have been very helpful in helping us look for our next home also.  We as a whanau would totally recommend the O’Reilly’s. Thank you O’Reilly’s

Many thanks to Brendon for his help in getting us into our first home. His honesty, knowledge and expertise made the buying process so easy. Brendon’s advice and willingness to go the extra mile made for a hassle free experience. We would highly recommend this great team to anyone.

We engaged Sean and Brendon to market our property in Claude Street, Fairfield. The property has two houses on it which meant the range of prospective buyers would be grater than for a single house sale; such as rental investor, home and income and  extended family. We relied on their advice and followed their marketing plan which included sale by auction from the start. The marketing process took a couple of months,  and from the outset Sean and Brendon kept us regularly updated by phone, text or email. They explained the auction process well, and while we were a bit anxious about the outcome, we were not unprepared on auction day and very pleased with the  outcome. Sean and Brendon will arrange a site meeting with the new owners so we can discuss the property including care and maintenance. We are preparing now for the settlement day and working to ensure we leave the property  cleared and in good condition for the new owners. We would be happy to use O’Reillys at Lodge Real Estate again and confidently recommend them to you if you are buying or selling a property in Hamilton.

Were do I start? Upon a chance scroll through marketplace one night I stumbled across our dream home. We went to the open home the next day and were made to feel like we were already home meeting Sean and Brendon. The knowledge they had on this huge property made us realise they really do their homework… After a few more open homes we felt like we had made some new friends. We had another house to sell and they made that happen very fast. We got the $ we wanted and we were good to go to auction. Brendon was with us all the way, even came over the night before to calm our nerves and go through every scenario that we could encounter. On the day Brendon was also right there beside us, and Sean with the vendor. After our win we all celebrated. I know for sure that we will never move, but we will recommend this father and son team to everyone we know…

I have no hesitation what-so-ever in recommending both Sean and Brendon from Lodge Real Estate in Hamilton to promote/sell and ensure potential buyers have every opportunity to find their next home. Initially I had my house listed with another company for three months with no results, a lot of rhetoric, open homes and continuously asking me to lower the price after giving me a market appraisal. When I contacted Brendon we organised a time to catch up, he appraised the property, sorted out a marketing plan, signed a contract and into it. One of the key things that I noticed was the Lodge team effect, they all new about the property and worked with Sean and Brendon to find a buyer. Within three weeks we had an offer and with a little negotiation we had a signed contract and one week later we were unconditional. A bloody great result for us. Try them, you will not be disappointed


Not only did Sean and Brendon plan to sell our property in 3 weeks but they accomplished just that! They thought ahead, organised their marketing with assurance and always seemed to know exactly their target buyer. We could not have had more quality service over two sales that we have had from this duo. Helen & David.

We were in need of a new home in Hamilton, relocating from Auckland. Brendon was a fantastic agent, who was very patient with our specific needs. We appreciate all the time he put into finding a suitable house for us, and the extra mile to connect us with excellent building inspectors and lawyers. His engagement and love for the job can be noticed in everything he does.

Dieter & Jutta

Brendon and Sean were great, we are so happy to have had them as our buyers agents. They made purchasing our first home way less stressful than it would have been, their experience and knowledge of the market helped us find the perfect home for us. The whole process felt easy and smooth having been connected with an extended team of lawyers and mortgage brokers that were all super knowledeable and helpful. 

Toby & Niki

The O’Reillys listened to what I wanted, and delivered a result almost immediately after giving me realistic advice and expectations. Having Brendon’s support with contractors to help go unconditional saved a lot of running around and was much appreciated. Would totally use them again!

Shane & Heidi

Many thanks to Sean and Brendon who made selling my house such a smooth and painless experience. Great communication from start to finish. Many thanks for achieving such a good result at auction.

Mike Collins

We found the O’Reilly’s to be great to work with as our buying agents. They advised us through the process and went that extra mile to ensure everything was just right. Would highly recommend Brendon O’Reilly and Sean O’Reilly if you are thinking of making your next move in the market.

Matt & Amanda

Sean & Brendon are superb at what they do. Their knowledge and experience was essential in enabling us to buy and sell in a tough market. Sean & Brendon are completely trustworthy which is why we have used them twice now, once for our first home and then again to upgrade the family home. Thanks to the patience of Sean and Brendon, and their responsiveness to our needs and questions, we are now in the perfect home for our family and we would absolutely recommend them. We wouldn’t consider anyone else the next time we need to buy or sell. These are guys you can trust for honest and reliable real estate advice.

Rob & Amanda

Brendon and Sean are a great team and we highly recommend them. We recently relocated to Hamilton and their knowledge and experience really helped us when purchasing our new family home. As well as having extensive knowledge and experience in the current property market, they were also able to connect us with trusted builders, lawyers and mortgage brokers. This ensured the whole process was smooth, from start to finish. Cannot recommend highly enough.
Aaron & Sina

Would highly recommend The O’Reillys to anyone. Brendon helped us into our first home and made the whole process so easy! He was so approachable and honest throughout the journey. He and Sean have great knowledge of the market and connected us with lawyers and brokers as needed to make getting in the property market a stress free process. Could not have done this
without them.

Sana & Zoe

Brendon and Sean have been our property adviser since Nov 2018. They are excellent listeners and we appreciated the effort they made to clearly understand our situation, and needs, before working with us to tailor a property investment plan that best meets our needs, at a cost that is manageable and sustainable. We have found Brendon and Sean to be meticulous in undertaking their analysis and preparing informative reports that provide clear recommendations, as well as a thorough explanation of the reasoning behind those recommendations. They explain the key details in properties that they are recommending so that we have a firm understanding of how property investment works. Brendon’s and Sean’s ongoing service is exceptional, they are with you all the way in helping at every opportunity, and we are delighted to have them as our property advisers. We recommend them for all your property needs.

Many thanks to the O’Reilly team. Brendon went above and beyond to help me with my first home, putting me at ease with my many queries and locating all the extra information I needed to feel comfortable with my purchase. Communicating well with not only me but my lawyers and mortgage broker to make the whole process easier than I expected.  He has a great knowledge of the Hamilton market, getting me into a great first home.
