I have conducted 2 Malibu real estate transactions with the O’Herlihys. The first was sale of my multi-million dollar home thru Cormac 2 years ago; the second rental of my guest house a few weeks ago thru Wailani. Both transactions involved advertising and multiple showings. Both involved quite complex interactions with the buyer/tenant that required openness, sensitivity, and good judgment well beyond obtaining signatures. In both transactions, I ended up thankful that the O’Herlihys represented me. They have encyclopedic Malibu real estate knowledge, having lived and worked here for decades. They are exceptionally diligent in seeking, finding and screening potential buyers/renters. Both seller and buyer end up feeling that their ethics are impeccable. As such, O’Herlihys represent the best in the meaning of “broker,” one who fairly seeks and achieves a win-win solution in a real estate transaction.Jim Forrester
We highly recommend Wailani and Cormac. From the very beginning of their communication, professionalism and follow up was incredible. They made the process of selling our home as smooth as possible. Their marketing provided a frenzy of possible buyers the very first week the house went on the market. We would definitely use them again for our real estate needs in the future.Greg Corman

Wailani O'Herlihy and Lea Johnson of Sotheby's International Realty in Malibu took extremely good care of me during the sale of my house in August of 2016. They both took the time to explain each and every step of the process to me since it had been many years since I'd bought or sold a house. What could have been a very stressful and difficult experience was made easy, fast and painless by Wailani and Lea. They were extremely knowledgeable with all of the big and small issues involved in selling a house and they worked tirelessly to secure a great price as quickly as possible while looking out for my best interest with caution and concern. I would recommend these very experienced agents to anyone and would happily enlist their expertise again in the future.
Dear Wailani and Cormac,
It was a pleasure to work with you on 28024 Sea Lane. You are very professional in every way- Your attention to detail is impressive. You were on top of every part of the this transaction which led to a successful close. I will recommend you to other agents and clients in Malibu. I believe in you.. You know real estate and work diligently to do the very best for your clients.
Please feel free to have anyone call me for a referral..
Thank you,Jenny Hall
Thank you for all your help in selling my home in Malibu for forty three years ! You and Cormac are such Pros! You guided me, not only through the steps to get it ready to sell ( Sold the first day you showed it ), but also all the follow up. You showed for back up offers, communication will involved, inspections and work after sale ! Thank you so much ! Maurice Hall
Dear Cormac & Wailani,
We write to thank you for the time and special attention you showed us while selling our home in Malibu. We especially appreciate the professionalism you showed throughout the process. Finding a qualified buyer and selling the home in a timely manner was important to us and you succeeded on both counts.
Selling out home of 38 years and moving to a new residence was not without its challenges. Making a move in an unpredictable real estate market was a concern for both of us but your positive and realistic approach was reassuring.
Thank you for all you did. We would would recommend you without a moment's hesitation to anyone thinking of selling. Steven & Helen Clarke

We urge any Malibu-area homeowner who is thinking about selling his or her home to pick up the phone, call Wailani and Cormac O'Herlihy, hear their advice, and then rely on them to make the sale happen.
We learned first hand that while they are extremely good at all of the basics you'd expect of any competent agent, what separates Wailani and Cormac from those who are merely competent are the many things they do extraordinarily well. Most importantly, we were blown away by their commitment to understanding our situation and meeting our goals; their exceptional work ethic; their belief in over- (rather than the more common under-) communicating; their absolute commitment to professionalism and integrity, and their always sound, rational advice.
Selling your home can be a difficult and emotional experience. As you go though it you'll want to know that your agents are always on your side, rather than working for themselves. In that, and every other respect, Wailani and Cormac are simply the best.

It is with Pleasure and gratitude that I share comments on my experience with Cormac & Wailani O'Herlihy in the listing and sale of my home at 6200 Cavalleri Road. While I have bought and sold a number of houses, I have never before encountered such a level of excellence.
I am a Real Estate Broker myseld specializing in Commercial Real Estate, Financing & Investement Banking. I had certain expectations from my realtors and am pleased to say they exceeded them.
Their expertise with the market and Malibu proved to be invaluable.
The experience at each phase of the sales effort was superior, such as innovative efforts in developing prospects, useful insights on pre-listing renovations/staging, effective showings and proactive facilitation during the sale negotiations/due diligence. All of these tasks, whether business-related or interpersonal, were accomplished with a noticeable degree of competence, humility & integrity. Thus, I highly recommend the O'Herlihy's for residential real estate needs.Jim Aldrich

I just wanted to express how great it was to work with you on our purchase of the property at 6053 Paseo Canyon Dr. You and Cormac were very professional and held up under considerable stress due to a difficult sale through two escrows. Cormac was great at explaining details about the house when we first went through the property and all of his advice eventually became crucial to the sale. Wailani, you were amazing at keeping my worries at bay throughout the whole process and I would recommend you both to any potential homebuyers in the area. We would have walked away from that property if it were not for your careful insight to strategy and process within the Malibu real estate market, and we are most grateful now that are living in our first home.

You got it done! Thank you for your tenacity and patience and your professionalism. Some time I would like to have a conversation with you about how this transaction stacks up in your experience as far as difficulty of completion, personalities, and the pattern of events that occurred.
When you are older and retired, you could probably write a book about this sale and all the difficult personalities involved and stumbling blocks along the way. I really thank you for putting up with us and getting it closed. We were all holding our breaths!
Dear Cormac & Wailani,
I Want to take the time to congratulate you on another fantastic year! Your production is exemplary, and the growth of your business inspiring. Year over year, you have been able to consistently attain status at the very top of your office. Marketing luxury properties and servicing the buyers and sellers of same, is something not all agents are able to pull off. Creative and consistent marketing, coupled with focused planning, have enabled you to better serve your sellers, generate additional sales and stand out amongst your competitors.
Your repeat business with affluent clients, and testimonials of satisfaction from many of them, make me proud to be associated with you. You make us all look good!
I look forward to 2014 with great anticipation, as I perceive your objectives will not just be met, but exceeded.
Sincerely, Dave Osman
Being a first time Seller and Buyer could have been a terrifying experience! But with the excellent help and guidance, sprinkled with a mixture of Irish and Hawaiian laughter, it was the opposite for me! They worked incredibly hard to sooth my worried and stressed out self and made it a great experience, and the bonus.
I added two new fabulous friends to my life!

In all my dealings with Realtors over the past ten years, I have never met anyone as helpful and energetic as they have been. Without hesitation, I would highly recommend their service to anyone who is looking for an experienced Realtor who cares about getting things done and doing them right! Thanks for taking such good care of me, I couldn't have done it without you!
I have been a mortgage broker/banker in Malibu for over 20 years. I've had the great pleasure of working with Cormac and Wailani and their clients for the past 20 years.

I think that's why we keep working with the same happy clients one transaction after another.
