Lee & Joe M.

We first met Mike O'Boy at several open houses in 2001 and were so impressed with him that we asked him to find us the perfect home. Mike knows the Aptos/Santa Cruz area like the back of his hand and is very well-connected with all the resources we needed. He guided us through every step of the process in a highly professional and friendly manner. When we decided to downsize in 2014, there was no question about who to contact. Mike and Tara did an excellent job with selling our existing home and locating a new one. As a team, the O'Boys did an excellent job of advertising, negotiating, arranging financing, staging, and guiding us through the process. There is no doubt that if we need real estate experts in the future, we already know two of the best.


Outstanding service deserves an outstanding review! Mike and Tara were such a joy to work with in selling our Rio Del Mar home. From the first meeting, we knew that we were in good hands. Mike has such a wealth of experience and knew just who to contact to do the painting and landscaping that would make our home shine. We had a really tight time frame for listing our home, and Mike and Tara were there every steps of the way to make the process as smooth as possible. They also proved invaluable in guiding us through the best way to respond to multiple offers and to make everyone buyers and sellers feel like we were in a win-win situation. We are so grateful to have had Mike and Tara in our corner.

I categorically recommend Mike O’Boy for any real estate needs in the Aptos area. We worked with Mike for about six months looking for the right purchase and he found it. He found our happy place. He was patient, focused on what we were looking for, and not simply trying to make a commission. Not only did his local knowledge find us an off-market deal (that worked for all parties) he stood by us after close, helped coordinate the updates and contractors, and ensured when we were ready to move it, he was as proud of the deal as we were. You will only be super impressed with Mike before, during, and importantly after the deal!

We moved from San Jose and didn't know much about the Santa Cruz/Aptos real estate market. The O'Boys have lived in this area all of their lives, and are knowledgeable about every element of this family-friendly, picturesque community. They worked with us for many months as we searched for a new home and helped us purchase the perfect place! Mike and Tara are upfront and honest with outstanding client service and they really know the Santa Cruz market. It's their backyard!
