John is an excellent sales person and made the connection with Better Homes and Gardens very clear as well as the provenance that comes from this affiliation.

Leonard and Ginny Sargeant

John offers an outstanding professional real estate experience! He had the answers to all our questions and concerns! He made the process easy!

Raphael Witorsch

Level of service outstanding. John O'Reilly and Jenn Roussell served above and beyond the call of duty. Not only did the firm sell my house rapidly, they helped me find movers and get rid of excess furniture.

Robert Thompson

John O’Reilly is the consummate professional while guiding you through the sale of your existing home. He and his staff’s attention to detail is refreshing in today hustle and bustle environment. He is simply the BEST!

Suzanne Cardwell

The process was excellent! John and team maintained ongoing communication with me and the experience was over and beyond expectation of a realtor. Thank you!

Carla & Mike

John showed us numerous homes knowing we were not ready to buy for almost a year....when the time came to actually purchase we decided to have a home built,after negotiating a price for the home on our own we brought John in to visit the sales office .....after only a few hours time, John got us about 8,000 dollars in extra's added to our house at no additional charge to us. John is a pleasure to work with and has sold my (2) nieces and my sister in law a home also....I would not hesitate to recommend John to anyone who is searching for a home in and around the Chesterfield area.....thanks again John for all of your help, Carla and Mike

John and the BaseCamp team helped us with the negotiation and purchase for the property to build or dream home and for the subsequent sale of my existing home. John's contractual and process expertise was paramount to both transactions. I was especially thrilled when I received a contract for sale within two days of the listing!

It's always comforting to know you have an agent that is looking out for your best interest. I've brought investment properties to John and after a market analysis and his personal knowledge, has turned me away from some purchases that would have been and easy commission for him. Can't say enough good things about this man.

Cathy G.

I met John O'Reilly when I contacted him about a listing he had for sale. I didn't have an agent at the time. John met me at the house, showed me around and we connected immediately. I did not buy that particular house, but John became my agent in my search for a home in the Midlothian area. John is very knowledgeable and honest. He was very upfront and let me know if certain areas were not likely to fit my home search criteria rather than show me anything and everything in my price range just to make a sale. I not only found a great realtor in John, but am glad to call him my friend.

Adrienne Bowman

I recommend John O’Reilly. He helps the process run smoothly and helps if any moment feels stressful. His efforts for going above and beyond make buying and selling a home easy going and wonderful!

Kevin Silver, Richmond, VA

Have used John O'Reilly for every home purchase I have ever done, and will continue to. His service and responsiveness are perfect. The entire staff were amazing. Everything was handled beyond our expectations. We were able to relax and enjoy the process of finding and purchasing our perfect home because John and his staff took care of everything, and there was nothing left for us to stress about.

Jake Crockett, Powhatan, VA

We have now purchased two houses using John O’Reilly as our broker and have been extremely happy both times. He is very knowledgeable about the area and always provided us with accurate information and an honest opinion. John was incredibly patient as we searched for our dream house. We went looking from house to house and always found a reason why it wasn’t “the one”. Once we found the house that was right for us, John was very helpful throughout the entire process and answered any questions we had. Although we do not intend to move again, we will always recommend John O’Reilly to anyone looking to purchase real estate. He truly made the process as easy and painless as possible for us. We will be forever grateful for the time and effort John put into helping us find our forever home.

Colleen and Rick LaMere

We had an excellent experience again with John and his team. We decided to sell our family home of 20 plus years in the summer of 2019. Johns team were professional, friendly and knowledgeable. The pictures for the Zillow site were very well done. We had planned an open house, but never needed to hold one as we had 8 offers within the first 3 days. We ended up selling for a price considerably above listing. We have used John and his team for other projects in the past and will continue to do so in the future. It is with great enthusiasm and without hesitation that we continue to recommend Base Camp Realty to our friends and other potential clients.

Andrew Zima, Midlothian, VA

As I said previously, John O'Reilly is a gentleman and as a gentleman is fair, considerate, and above reproach.

Kim Rice

John helped us with the purchase of our Commercial Building back in January and we could not be more Happy!! He negotiated a great contract for us, followed through with the inspection, and was there to answer calls any time of day or night! Thank you John!!

Stuart and Bonnie......... Midlothian

Had a contract 7 hours after first showing at a price significantly over list price. Closed in 31 days during extreme economic upheaval. We had great confidence in John O'Reilly and his team prior to listing our home. A year earlier he sold my daughter and son in law's townhouse in one day also over asking. Best home sale experience we have ever had.

Betty A. Thompson Chesterfield, VA

Property was sold very quickly and John kept me informed in every aspect of the transaction! John O’Reilly was very professional and knowledgeable as well as his staff.So impressed with John O ‘Reilly’s performance he is currently my agent in helping me purchase my new home! This was a real WIN-WIN. Thanks

Mioara Iust

Jay Swedenborg, Chesterfield, Virginia

I am a friend of John's and we are both members of the South Richmond Rotary. John has a great personality and is a natural salesman. I respect John's involvement in a variety of capacities to serve others in the community. I knew my home needed some work done to prepare it for sale, and John agreed to help me identify the projects and secure high quality folks to complete the work. As a result, our house was prepped and ready to be sold in a very reasonable amount of time. Our house was sold to one of the first families to view the house. The contract was accepted by us on the 2nd day house was listed. Thanks John... We appreciate your consel, your service and your "wrap-around" approach to getting our house prepped and sold. I highly recommend John O'Reilly and Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate Base Camp!

Laura Richmond,VA

If you want a professional and wonderful sale or home buying experience, call John.

Andrea Lilly, Henrico, Va

When we needed to sell my boss' property. I knew who to call. John is very professional and I knew we would be in good hands.

Luke Jackson, Cobham, UK

Great job

Leigh - Midlothian

I worked with John O'Reilly 15 years ago. I knew he was a great agent then and is still a great agent. John has an eye for detail and caught a $4000 mistake in the repairs that were supposed to be completed according to our contract. John returned all my calls promptly even when he was with his daughter at College Parents' Day.

12020 Taplow Road

John was always available, always helpful and provided regular status updates, despite his busy schedule. His high energy and cheerfulness was always a plus.

Willie Burney

My wife and I have known Mr. O'Riley for more than 15 years. He has provided his knowledge and real estate expertise for the sale of our current home as well as advice and support for the purchase of our next home. He helped us to evaluate risk vs rewards associated with the purchase of the new home and sale of prior home. He was always positive and supportive. He led the negotiation for the acquisition of our new home.

Elaine DeVoss, Glen Allen, Virginia

John's team of professionals are first rate with regard to assessing the property's value, marketing the property and working with the seller to prepare the home for the best possible price. The stager's advice was helpful and not condescending and his photographer made my house look awesome. John's use of advanced software and technology with regard to signing documents surely saved me time money. Most of all, John listened to me closely and offered alternatives with honesty. John and his team were very instrumental in getting my home sold quickly. I was very impressed with his operation and organization. My only recommendation would be to lay out a more definitive timeline for events and inspections that finish the deal. The final closing time for the buyer needed to be communicated to the seller so that final payments regarding transition moved along seamlessly. Essentially, I would surely recommend John's group to my friends. They did what I wanted them to do...sell my house quickly and efficiently!!

Kellie Hickman, Chester

John O'Reilly made the house searching and buying process easy and fun! John was very attentive to our request, needs, budget, and communication! I would recommend John to ANYONE looking to buy a house. We couldn't be happier in our forever home and it couldn't have been possible without the help of John!

David Voros, Chester

John did an outstanding job for us in finding the right house to meet our needs and budget. John went above and beyond to make sure we had everything we needed throughout the entire process and had excellent contacts for contractors that we would need after the purchase. It was a pleasure working with John and his team and I will recommend him to all of my friends and family.

Nancy, Midlothian

Great! John was always on top of the process.

Michelle Rhodes, Sandy, Utah (formerly

I have worked with John O'Reilly for many years and he never fails to deliver. He knows the market, he knows how to price houses to sell, and he knows how to get traffic through your house. If you are looking to buy a home, he values your time and finds homes that meet your requirements. He and his team are outstanding communicators and truly care about your total experience. They are quick to address problems and helpful with suggestions. They follow through so that things get done in a timely manner. I know that my house sold in the time that it did because of John and his amazing team. I would highly recommend John O'Reilly and Base Camp Reality to anyone looking to buy or sell real estate.

Shannon from Midlothian

John O'Reilly was an excellent realtor! From beginning to end, he was professional and got the job done! I would highly recommend John to family and friends.

Mike and Cindy Zuehlke 17619 Wynstone

John is always in a positive mood, that helps during a stressful application process. The base camp group are good and reliable people. John always got an answer for me in a respectful time. Thanks Base Camp.

Frank Silva, Midlothian

I have used Mr. O'Reilly for three home purchases. I've had wonderful service each time. I'd never consider using another broker. Everyone in the office is friendly and extremely easy to work with.

James P. Webb, Midlothian

John O'Reilly did an excellent job and would recommend him to everyone!!

Nicole Maillet, Chesterfield VA

I've had the opportunity to deal with John O'Reilly on several occasions. Whether buying or selling, John sets realistic expectations, pays attention to detail, and provides great customer service throughout the entire buying or selling process. Buying and selling properties can be stressful, working with a broker who is knowledgeable, patient and efficient plus catches the small details when you're consumed with the big picture is what I've come to appreciate. The team at BHG Basecamp was great. They responded to and provided clear, timely communications. If they said they would find something out, they did, quickly. I felt like a valued customer throughout the entire process, long after we signed the first offer and up to the day of closing.

Ida Harris, Richmond

John was fantastic. Communicated throughout the process and had great advice when it came to negotiating. I could not have been happier with how John helped me through the sale of the home.

Tommy Langford

I have used John several times in the last 20 years and he has always done an amazing job. He makes the whole process simple and easy. He understands how to market the property and what to sell it for. He has a wonderful team of experts that help make everything from staging the property to repairs to decorating very easy.

Izabela Zima, Midlothian

John O'Reilly and his staff are phenomenal. The closings have been very easy and pleasant. John is extremely knowledgeable, helpful and professional. If it can be sold, he WILL get it sold. We have exclusively worked with John and his team for years and can't imagine using anybody else. We highly recommend him.

I have had multiple dealings with John over the past fifteen years. He always delivers. very knowledgeable and prdessionable. Would never consider another agent to handle my real estate needs. He's old school he always gives is all.

Harold Lingg Midlothian VA

John O'Reilly and the team at Better Homes and Garden are amazing. from pricing my property, through the contract, inspection, and closing the communication and assistance was outstanding. My expectations were exceeded every step of the way. John and his team are more then a "Real Estate" company. There passion for the community as well as there follow through every step of the way was refreshing. There is no doubt i would feel confident and intend to spread the word regarding my experience. Thank you to the entire team at Better Homes and Garden Real Estate.

Konye, Chesterfield, VA

I appreciate the time John took to find my family and I the home that fit all our needs. There were a few homes that I liked, that I didn’t realize would cost me more in the long run. John gave me insight on certain pitfalls and never rushed us through the process. He treated us as if we were family.

Russell & Katie Balthis - Gum Sprin

My wife and I were first time home sellers and didn't know everything involved in the process of selling our home. John O'Reilly helped us through the whole process with ease and was very patient with us when we had questions. John O'Reilly directed us to the best people for the repairs that were found in the inspection. John O'Reilly was very knowledgeable with how the market was at the time and came up with the perfect list price for our house. Our house sold in one day and required a quick closing.With his knowledge of the area we wanted to move to we were able to find something in one day. The whole experience went smoothly and we couldn't be happier. Thank you John O'Reilly!
