One of Linda’s main objectives is maintaining effective communication between our clients and any other agencies involved within the real estate transaction.

It has been her privilege to work with administration, parents and students with the Riverside County Office of Education in Riverside, California. Linda has also worked in the Human Resource Division of Corona/Norco Unified School District, also located in California. While her experience has been vast, the contributions she made included providing professional, competent, confident and creative services to those she worked with. As YOUR real estate professional YOU can count on these same qualities from our team to assist you in your real estate endeavor.
We both enjoy a round of golf, hiking, reading, walks on the beach, and travel. Mike finds great satisfaction in wood working and getting a line wet in any stream, lake or river; fishing in the PNW is terrific! Through the Master Gardener Program of Washington State University Linda learned more about one of her joys, gardening. And we both enjoy and have a passion for...our real estate business.

It was a pleasure to work with the Owens Team, truly an exceptional experience! Most of us do not buy and sell house but every 10-15 years so how would we know the processes and questions to ask? The Owens Team went above and beyond to inform us of the unknowns and assisted with making the right decisions. They also went above and beyond to assist us with acquiring a proper home warranty, something we could have overlooked, signed off on a subpar substitute, or none at all. They are very educated on the details and industry standards which assisted our negotiations and inspired confidence. The Owens Team is always friendly and professional and it truly felt they had our best interest at hand. There was never a time when we felt that our requests were inconveniencing them or causing them unnecessary work. Most importantly, their communication is excellent! There was not a time that we had to leave a voice mail or wait an extended time for an email response. If timely and thorough communication is what you expect, look no further! When working with the Owens Team, I assure you will have all the information and support you need to assist in your buying/selling process!
"Mike and Linda did a great job marketing our home and were extremely helpful in guiding us through this process. They were professional at all times and provided insight we would not have received elsewhere. We would recommend "The Owens Team" in a heartbeat."

I highly recommend Linda and Mike Owens for anybody looking to buy a house. I decided to make a huge move from my home in Austin, Texas to the Vancouver area in Washington. A colleague had recommended them to me and I am so grateful because it made all the difference in the world to have the right real estate agents. They were always so professional, helpful, and looking out for my best interest. It is so difficult to buy a house when you live in another state, but they made the process so much easier and even fun. They did a great deal of behind the scenes work and did previews of houses for me and ruled them in or out based on my criteria and other things that I might not have even thought about, so when I flew in to see homes we already had them narrowed down to really high matches. The Owens makes such a great team and between the two of them they have so much expertise, they have all the bases covered. I felt like I was always getting the information I needed to make the decisions that were necessary. In addition to being wonderful agents, they are just great people and I really looked forward to coming for my visits, just to spend some time with them in addition to finding my dream home. During the home selling and buying process I have been exposed to several real estate agents and I always felt bad for the people who didn't have Mike and Linda representing them because it was often evident they were not the quality that I was getting. I am so happy with my new home in Battle Ground, WA, it is the perfect match for me and in the neighborhood I wanted. I will recommend the Owens team to anyone who wants top of the line representation in the difficult but exciting process of buying a new home.
Mike and Linda Owens are an outstanding realtor team. Selling a house is hard work and they made it a pleasure. They were present and accessible every step of the way. Their information was thorough, accurate and very helpful. They made sure I understood all the paperwork and explained everything thoroughly. Once the house sold they continued to make sure the closing went as planned and were on hand for the signing. They were always pleasant, professional and easy to work with. I will recommend their services to anyone who needs to buy or sell a house. It was an extreme pleasure to work with them.
The Owens Team are fantastic! They were professional and always had positive attitudes, and very helpful answering any questions we had for them, even the altitude of one home! We had prospective homes sent to our e-mail, and they were right on target on what kind of place we were looking for. Any homes we wanted to look at they gained access promptly for us to check out. They were thoughtful as to include a snack and water in their vehicle just for us when we went searching homes in their vehicle. They were always available to us by phone or internet. We were in a difficult situation, away from our former home and in a temporary home needing to find a new one. They were efficient and speedy in moving us forward into our new place. We are so glad to already be in our new home we love! This was by far the easiest house finding experience we have ever had. We are both retired and have had a few home buys in our time. We highly recommend the Owens Team!

There are not enough words to describe what Mike and Linda did for us. They are amazing. They listened to our needs and wants , found the right house for us, so much so, that we bought a house we had never seen in person because we were relocating here. Any negative I ever could have thought about real estate has been erased because of their willingness to serve beyond what is required. Mike and Linda are a blessing and light in a dark world. I just love them

Dear Mike and Linda,
Thank you so much for representing us on the purchase of our new home. You two make a great team. Everything was done with efficiency and professionalism. It's refreshing to meet a couple with such integrity. Our purchase was a difficult one but at every turn you displayed your knowledge and patience and we ended up with a smooth transaction. You went above and beyond, literally. We will highly recommend you to friends and family who are looking to buy or sell.

Dear Linda and Mike,
Walter and I would like to compliment both of you for the way you helped us sell our home so quickly. Your research and preparation made the whole process go so smoothly. Both of you gently guided us in what was best to prepare our home for showing. We always knew you were working for us and you treated us as friends. You followed Windermere's Goal - you sold our home for the highest price, in the least amount of time, with no inconvenience to us. We would not hesitate to recommend both of you and Windermere to someone looking for a Realtor.
Walt and Millie
Dear Mike and Linda Owens @ Windermere Real Estate,
Our thanks for the many hours and open houses you did to bring a sale for our home. Your continued help from the day it was listed until all the sale was final. We will be glad to recommend you to others who are wishing to sell. Your Knowledge, Honesty and Kindness were appreciated.
Jim and Sylvia
Dear Mike and Linda,
Just a quick note to let you know how blessed we were to have you both as our real estate agents in our search for a new home. Your service far exceeded our expectations and we found ourselves feeling much more like your friends than clients. We cannot think of anyone else we would have rather had advising us and guiding us through the home search and purchase process. You were professional, reliable, well informed, patient and tenacious. We absolutely LOVE our new home and can't wait to have you over for a BB-Q!
Thank you so much and we will definitely refer anyone one we know in the home buying/selling process in the State of Washington to you.
Blessings abundant to you!
Joey and Donna L.
Dear Mike and Linda,
We met a very professional Real Estate team of Mike & Linda Owens who helped us sell our home. They gave us so much good advice as to pricing, appearance and all the things needed to make a successful sale. They were always on time for any meetings we had with them. They prepared a helpful book about selling property and always kept us informed. The photo layout that was prepared at their direction was complete and one of the reasons why our home sold so quickly. If you need a professional Real Estate team we would highly recommend Mike & Linda Owens of Windermere Real Estate Co.
Jack and Jean S.
Wonderful people! Awesome realtors! Mike and Linda made the process of buying our house painless.
