Client Comments:

Fantastic! I have now sold two homes and purchased one with the Owens Team as my realtors and I would never use anyone else. They are professional, friendly, extremely competent, and are very good at listening to our needs. Their attention to detail saved me $2500 when I sold my house, because the other agent had been vague in writing an addendum. I initially started working with them because they returned my call quickly and had been recommended by a neighbor of mine. It turns out they ALWAYS return your call/text/email quickly and now I am recommending them to others. I truly cannot say enough about the integrity of and comfort of working with Mike and Linda. I trust them completely.

Working with Mike and Linda Owens at Windermere exceeded all of our expectations. Two years ago we put our house in Oregon on the market and turned to the Owens' to help us find a home in Washington. They found us a gorgeous home and helped us put an offer on it. It was accepted but we had setbacks with the sale of our home and had to withdraw our offer. Obviously this was heartbreaking but they never gave up on us. They checked in and gave us the encouragement we needed to try to buy again this March. They listened carefully to our home needs and sent us personalized listings. They were available to us even when we wanted to look at houses short notice and worked with us despite our crazy schedules. Thanks to their experience, support, and encouragement we found the perfect house in this difficult housing market. They provided professional communication with all parties while looking out for our best interests. We feel like we made good friends through this process and we would not hesitate to recommend them!

We needed help with selling our house quickly and for its full value. We could not be more satisfied. Mike and Linda's professional and friendly advice and assistance enabled us to sell our house almost immediately. We highly recommend Owens Team Realty.

Home purchase went very well. Mike & Linda were very responsive and attentive. They listen to what you have to say and are patient. Very punctual and always makes sure things are taken care of. I have worked with many real estate agents and these 2 are the best.

Excellent! Mike & Linda, The Owens Team, are so knowledgeable and helpful! I had a somewhat challenging home to sell. They arranged for a great photographer, had my home listed on multiple venues and in two months I had an offer. After the home inspection, turns out the appraiser noted that the water heaters were not strapped to the wall, and until that got done, the buyer’s loan would not go through. I let Mike & Linda know that although I was planning to install the straps myself, I hit a big roadblock: the water heaters were under the house backing up to a concrete wall. Mike immediately said- no problem, I can come up within 2 hrs and fasten them to the wall. It was a much bigger project than imagined- the concrete wall was the home foundation, and he kept hitting rocks within the concrete. He was able to get both water heaters strapped securely and to code- but took a few hours on a Sunday afternoon. That's dedication! Mike & Linda care very much about their clients and making sure that they think of everything and also listen to you, the buyer and/or sellers wishes. Working with Mike & Linda, The Owens Team, I felt extremely confident that everything would be handled professionally, and it was. I have already recommended them to friends in need of a Realtor to help with the sale of their home

We needed to sell my Mother's home. We needed help with getting the home ready to sell, obtaining information to help us set a fair price, and then list the home. Mike and Linda were very organized and had done their homework prior to our first meeting. They had reviewed the property details, had already checked out comps for like homes in the area and had numerous suggestions for what needed to be done to get the property ready in order to sell at the best price possible. The home sold within a matter of days from the list date. Throughout the process they were extremely professional, knowledgeable and willing to go above and beyond for us. Very pleased....we will definitely recommend them and will use their services again.
Doug and Doris A.

We listed 2 homes with Mike & Linda to sell. They were extremely professional, responsive & very helpful with suggestions on staging & getting repairs done. They answered all our many questions. One house sold in 2 days; the other sold in just over 1 week! They had beautiful, professional photos taken that really showcased both homes & brought in many prospective buyers. They held an open house, which had great results. We felt in very capable hands, as they were very diligent about all the paperwork & legal documents needed. And even after the homes closed, they followed up multiple times to make sure we received all the money back from the title companies. We could not have asked for better service!
Phil and Darlyn B.

The Owens Team Realty represented me in both transactions, to sell my existing home and purchase a new home.. In both transactions the Owens Team outperformed. Both transactions were completed to our complete satisfaction. The Owens Team are consummate professionals and they come with a terrific bonus as they are also just terrific people. We enjoyed not only their professionalism but their personal approach to getting the job done. They are both first rate hand holders and never hesitated to jump in when needed. Even when things got tough they guided us through and there was always time for a laugh! I would urge anyone to consider the Owens Team whenever the need should arise.
Paul B.

Mike and Linda Owens, The Owens Team, have been so amazing with two very big steps for me- getting my house listed and also simultaneously helping me find a new home. From day one of meeting with Mike and Linda I felt confident that getting my house on the market would go well, and also felt very confident that I would be able to find the right new house for me. They both have always been honest, professional and so fun to work with! At every turn- be it viewing homes, being there for inspection of my new home, the paper signing etc.. Mike and Linda have been there to help me with any questions and have given me great advice. I have given The Owens Team ( aka Mike and Linda) a new name- The Dream Team!!! :)

Professional, knowledgeable and highly skilled, a dedicated sales and service team. The realtor (The Owens team) listed and showed our home on several occasions. This Owens team kept us informed and advised us on changes that would make a difference. We sold an expensive property during difficult times and felt that the realtor help us do everything in our power to make the sale happen. The Owens team helped us prepare the home for sale, watched over it for us while we were on vacation and worked all aspects of completing the sale in a timely and professional manner. Their experience with many prior properties helped us swiftly and with purpose keep moving in the right direction to make the sale happen. They held an open house for other realtors and followed through by giving us the feedback we wanted to hear and the feedback that we didn't want to hear but really needed to hear anyway. Honesty and trustworthiness are but two of their many strong assets they bring forward to make the sale happen. I would definitely use them again and trust the information they provide to be accurate and timely. You will not go wrong by using "The Owens Team" from Windemere.
Orel and Pat C.

I had a difficult property to sell: a manufactured home on rural property. I contacted multiple real estate agents and either didn't get a call back or received a low ball estimate of value. Finally, I talked to my neighbor, who had sold his home, and discovered he had been extremely happy with the Owens Team. Mike and Linda sold his home for a good price after it had been listed multiple times by other realtors, so I thought I'd give them a call. Best call I ever made. They are extremely professional, while also being friendly and approachable. All the way through the process, they kept me well informed, helped me make good decisions and, in the end, we sold and CLOSED the sale within a month!! I couldn't be happier and would recommend them to my own daughter without hesitation. Mike and Linda really care and took great pains to make the process as easy as possible on me. They are of high integrity and just all around great human beings--you won't be disappointed if you're on the Owens Team!!

We had a prospective buyer the day our home went on the market and got more than our asking price. We were nervous about moving out without having a home to move into. The Owens Team with their upbeat and positive style kept us from worrying. Nine days after we closed on our home we were into a new home which we paid 5% below asking price! The main thing is how sure and smooth they worked with us. They were well tuned into what we wanted and expected...Couldn't be more happy with our new home and recommend Mike and Linda Owens to anyone looking to buy and/or sell a home.
Mark and Beverly P. (Repeat Clients)

It's hard to express how impressed I am with Mike and Linda Owens. They successfully got me out of a rural property I could no longer care for and into the perfect downsize much closer in. Thoughtful, considerate, kind, but above all a level of professionalism that is truly impressive. I would not hesitate to recommend The Owens Team.
Robin C.

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 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 voicemail 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!

Words simply cannot convey how outstanding Mike & Linda Owens are! My husband and I have purchased and sold numerous houses and have found no other agents that can compare. They are uniquely compassionate, caring and knowledgeable. They continuously surprised us by going out of their way to make sure that we were happy and purchased the house we wanted. We would not use another agent again and feel completely confident in their services which is such a rarity in the industry. We wish that we had found them earlier.
Mary G.

We wouldn't be in our beautiful home today if it wasn't for Mike and Linda. The short sale foreclosure purchase is never easy, but the Owens Team came through and made our dream come true. They were there every step of the way making sure the home inspection was done correctly, keeping on top of the listing agent, as well as making sure the escrow went smooth. The Owens Team is the only agents we would consider or recommend to others.
Thank you, Lynn and Bob R.

"We will take care of it" was the often heard promise as we experienced the listing and sale of our home. From the listing to the sale, the Owens Team did a stellar job of keeping us happy and informed. They are energetic, and thorough. I would be happy to endorse them for future real estate sales.
Ed and Janice H.

We downsized with the help of Linda and Mike who guided us through the process of buying a smaller home and selling a property that we had enjoyed living in for 15 years. They were engaged with us in this process, providing ideas, advice and support that made our transition an easier and more pleasant experience. Whether explaining the forms we must sign, promptly returning our calls, or responding to our needs for information, they were always professional in the most friendly and respectful way. We have complete faith in their integrity and we trust that our interests were kept foremost throughout this journey. Along the way we even had more than a few laughs. We highly recommend this knowledgeable, professional team to those who are selling or buying a home.
Norma and Jerry W

Mike & Linda, Thank you so much for all the extra work you did and the dedication you displayed until our house was sold. I will miss your weekly update calls & our chats. Your involvement in this project was impressive and also comforting since I live so far away, I felt like you were really watching out for us and I'm extremely grateful for that. I would be happy to be a reference for you and would highly recommend your services. Your are sweet, funny, honest & caring people and I wish continued success for you in your careers because you are very good at what you do! Thank you!

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.
Jane H.

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!
Sincerely,
Mark & Beverly P.

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
Tim and Lisa D.

Mike and Linda,
We both wish to thank you so very much for all you have done for us. During a time of stress, your support has meant so very much to us both. The Lord blessed us in having you both there for us!
Thank you so much,
K. and Elda C.

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.
Sincerely,
Darrell and Linda

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.
Sincerely,
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.
Thank You,
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!
Sincerely,
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.
