Irish Blood … American Heart
Colorado may be a long way from his home town in County Mayo, Ireland, but Brendan feels right at home whether he is showing a loft Downtown or listing a historic mansion in a prominent Denver neighborhood. His heart and soul blends his Irish heritage with his American life and profession.
Born the fifth of seven kids in Kiltimagh on a small working farm in County Mayo, Brendan learned the meaning of hard work at an early stage in life that has molded him into the astute and successful businessman he has become today. Competitive by nature, he has been negotiating deals all of his life - from the family farm throughout his career to his current passion in real estate.
Brendan believes in continuous self-development through education and hard work and always strives to do better for himself and his clients. He has climbed to a level of success in the real estate industry that many take decades to achieve. His track record as a consistent top producer and the exceptional trust and loyalty of his clients has proven that he is a resounding success in the real estate sales industry.
His clients describe his business acumen with vibrant descriptive words such as skillful negotiator, prudent advisor, passionate, kind, patient, perseverant, considerate, thorough, detailed, professional, vigorous, composed and ethical, just to name a few. He exercises good judgment and skilled communication with his clients and continually strives towards his constantly changing definition of perfection. He provides the same unsurpassed level of service to all - whether buying their first home or selling a multimillion dollar home.
Brendan’s essential nature is humility and he is self described as being a person who loves to “champion people”. He loves to educate and mentor - whether he is cheering on the neighborhood kids at swim meets or negotiating for his clients, he sees the untapped potential in people and situations and loves to give that immediate focus of attention “his all”.
Also known for his striking sense of humor, Brendan has a collection of “sayings” that he never fails to share at what always seems to be just the right moment, eliciting laughter from those he is sharing with and at the same time displaying his genuine care and love for people and his profession. “An acorn will someday be an oak”; “Make waves or take waves”; and, “I used to be a pessimist until I realized things would never improve” are just a few examples of the enjoyable Brendan-isms he has shared.
For relaxation and recharging, Brendan enjoys sports, is a loyal Denver Broncos fan and upholds his friendships and Catholic faith by staying active in his church, community and by attending a weekly men’s friendship circle meeting.
Brendan met his wife Ellen, a Denver native, in 1982 while she was in Ireland for an Irish dancing championship. They were married at the well-known Ballintubber Abbey in Ireland in 1984 and moved their family to Denver in 1992. Brendan and Ellen have a full house, blessed by six children ranging in age from 14 to 25, and currently reside in the wonderful Greenwood Village neighborhood of Green Oaks.
