I’ve worked with Andrea and Peter Owens twice now, once when I bought my condo and once when I sold it. When I bought, I paid below the list price – thanks to their advice – and when I sold they brought in multiple offers and my condo went for above the list price (and significantly more than I expected.) But more than that, they are very professional, trustworthy, and unfazed by all the things that can seem intimidating to someone not used to buying and selling property. I’ll certainly be recommending them to anyone I know who wants to buy or sell a home in this area.

I worked with Andrea and Peter as a first time home buyer and couldn’t have been happier! Andrea really explained the house buying process to us and helped along every step of the way. She heard the things that were important to us and reminded us of those things when we tried to settle. She educated us at every step and didn’t make us feel silly for asking the many, many questions that we had and held our hands all the way to closing. So, if you’re in need of realtor, I would definitely recommend the Owens team – thank you Andrea and Peter!

E. Harrawood

Andrea was very thorough and responsive throughout the process of purchasing our home. She was able to provide us with expert guidance at every step of the negotiation, due diligence, and closing process – as well as connect us with other local experts as needed along the way.

A. Snell

Andrea was incredibly professional, thorough and honest with us during every step of our house hunting and buying purchase. She was always available to discuss anything and answer any questions we had. She understood exactly what our family needed and worked tirelessly with us for over a year until we found the right house. We would highly recommend using her to anyone looking to either buy or sell a home.

C. Sartor

This is the third time we’ve bought a house with Andrea as our realtor and she is absolutely the best. She helped us navigate a tense negotiation with the sellers regarding some significant repairs. She is knowledgeable, wise, and on top of every detail. I would (and have!) recommend her to anyone looking for a realtor in the area.

K. Frazier

I’m so happy I went with Andrea Owens to help me find a home. From her knowledge of the local market, to her quick responsiveness, thoughtful communication and excellent negotiation skills she was amazing from start to finish.  Her expertise in the process and genuine kindness made shopping for a home feel calm and I knew I was in good hands. Seriously, I could not have asked for a better agent to represent me. I highly recommend Andrea Owens!

L. Langston

I am so glad my wife and I decided to go with Andrea as our realtor! As a first-time home buyer, I found it difficult to navigate the language and steps of home buying without someone there to help me. Andrea was magnificent every step of the way! She was quick to respond to our emails and texts,  she was proactive in working with sellers’ realtors and inspectors, she thought ahead about our needs, she coached us on next steps, she did everything I didn’t know I needed a realtor to do! If you are looking for a superb local realtor who goes above and beyond, I can recommend no other than Andrea! She knows her stuff inside and out!

Andrea was recommended to us from our mortgage lender. We are relocating to Chapel Hill and flew in multiple times to look at properties with her. As first-time home buyers and non-locals, we had many questions regarding the neighborhoods as well as a home purchasing process. Andrea always provided  thorough answers to our questions. We especially appreciated that she listened to our concerns and always supported making the right decision for us, rather than trying to pursuade us in one way or the other. She is very prompt and clear with her communication. We just closed our home last week and we are thrilled with our purchase. Overall, we would recommend her to anyone.

C. Glaeser

This was the 2nd time we used Andrea to buy a house. After a great experience 10 years ago, we returned to her. She has been a tremendous asset in navigating the often complex real estate world. We are working with her now to sell our house also, and would be lost without her help. Thanks Andrea!

V. Chanon

We have known and worked with Andrea for a decade now. She helped us buy our first house, then sell it when we relocated to Michigan. We just recently moved back to Chapel Hill and Andrea helped us find our new home. Buying a house remotely and then moving with two young kids (including a  6-week-old) presents some unique challenges, but Andrea helped us at every step of the way and made EVERYTHING easier. She is professional, has an eye for the details, and goes the extra mile to understand and fulfill the needs of her clients. We HIGHLY recommend contacting her if you’re considering buying or selling a house.

C. Frazier

Andrea was outstanding during the entire process. As first time home buyers, we definitely had a smaller than average max budget for the area, but we never felt pressure to compromise on our needs. She was incredibly professional with prompt responses to any and all of our many questions and I  consistently felt like she had our best interests at heart. She was very accommodating to our schedules, which were often complicated by having a newborn in tow. Her professionalism and experience helped us remain calm in what felt like a very strong sellers market. We would recommend Andrea without reservation to anyone who asks us about real estate in this area, and we would not hesitate to call on her again!

E. Irwin

We called Andrea Owens and the Carolina Preferred Realty Team months before we relocated to the Chapel Hill area in 2011; she spent Mother’s Day weekend with our family, showing us a dozen properties in two days. While we were unable to find a home at that time, we rented, and worked with Andrea  almost daily to find what we were looking for. She held our hands, literally, when we fell in love with a short sale and had to wait, anxiously, for three long months. She will always answer your phone calls and silly questions and steer you in the right direction.

E. Marson

We were selling a unique property in a soft market, but Andrea came through for us. She kept us informed and encouraged throughout the long process, offered great advice for optimizing our home’s and property’s appearance, and supported us through every stage of the sales cycle. She was a guide, a  source of encouragement and a true friend as we worked our way through the offer/counter-offer and sale process. Andrea is definitely the most competent, caring and professional realtor I’ve  ever dealt with. I recommend her without reservation.

J. Schmidt

Andrea helped us find our dream home at a dream rate!  She is extremely knowledgeable on the area and the buying process.  She is organized, prompt, friendly and smart!  Everything you want in someone who is representing you.  I have never written a review (in my life!) but couldn’t help myself in  taking the time to write one for her.  She is just a wonderful realtor.

S. Campbell

Andrea’s representation in my recent home sale was outstanding. She and Peter saved me $ by helping me focus on the most important and cost-effective home improvements prior to showing. The house showed for 5.5 weeks and we closed last week. I’m thrilled!

M. Smith

We highly recommend both Andrea and Peter Owens as realtors. We were blown away from the beginning of the buying process by their professionalism, attention to detail, knowledge, and thoroughness. Andrea and Peter always had the time and energy to help us, answered countless numbers of questions, and offered invaluable advice about the Chapel Hill real estate market. 

We were moving to Chapel Hill from another state, and we feel that Andrea and Peter went above and beyond to help us. We could not attend multiple building inspections for the house that we ended up purchasing, and Andrea and Peter gladly and skillfully represented us during all inspections.

Andrea and Peter always had our best interests in mind, listened very carefully to what we wanted in a house, and has a keen eye for detail when looking at properties. We couldn’t be happier with our choice to work with Andrea and Peter. We have only lived in Chapel Hill for a few months, and we have already highly recommended them to a friend who is considering moving to the area. We can’t imagine a more professional, helpful, attentive, and knowledgeable team of realtors. When we decide to sell again, we know without a doubt that our first call will be to The Owens Team.

Thank you for everything. It is very difficult to house hunt while living 800 miles away, and we can’t thank you enough for everything you did for us!

M. and B. McManus

Anne and I wanted to thank you so very much for all you and Andrea did to help us sell the house. From initially listing the place, to helping finish the process, we could not have asked for better service. It is quite evident how truly skilled and talented you are in the real estate profession, and I want you to know how much we appreciate your time and energy! I hope I have the privilege of referring clients to you soon!…

A. Wagoner, D.D.S.

Peter, You are THE HEAT! I personally have never seen a more “with it” realtor in all my life. Nothing surprises you, no feathers ruffle, it’s like you’ve already “seen it all”. You’re wise way beyond your years! When working with you its smooth happy sailing for all. How refreshing! You are a true professional and such a splendid joy to work with! We at Anchorage Builders hope that we can work with you for many wonderful years to come!

C. Senior, Anchorage Building Corporation

My recent experience selling my home with Andrea Owens was the most stress-free experience I’ve ever had in buying or selling real estate.  Andrea helped me determine a competitive asking price and coached me as I prepared my home for the market.  She clearly explained every necessary document and contract.  Because I hadn’t sold a house in a decade, she gave me important information about current real estate trends.  Best of all, she sold my home in less than 100 days!

Throughout the process of selling my home, I had many important decisions to make, and I came to trust Andrea’s advice implicitly because she was right about her predictions every time.

Andrea’s strengths include her attention to detail, her knowledge of the local market, her professionalism, and her pleasant demeanor.  She is proactive; she always kept me one step ahead of the game.  She addressed all my concerns in a timely fashion.

I give my highest recommendation to Andrea Owens for all of your real estate needs.

H. Hoffmann, M.D.

Andrea helped us purchase a wonderful house in Northern Orange County. We had specific criteria for a property and Andrea was willing to take us on a wide search. She always had good insight and helpful questions as we were looking. This really helped us narrow the search and choose the perfect place When it came time to sell our house, Andrea was ready to assist again. The process had many ups and downs and through it all, Andrea always worked for us to keep the deal moving in the right direction. We couldn’t have done it without her! We can’t recommend her enough for buying of selling. When she is working with you, she is always working for you in the process.

J. Schmidt

I just wanted to write and let you know what a great job Peter Owens did in selling our house. It was a difficult process made easy with Peter’s help. He kept us involved every step of the way, did a great job of marketing, and in the end sold our house for what we wanted. I will recommend Peter to as many friends as I can in the future.

B. Wright

I can’t begin to express how wonderful Andrea was in the sale of our home and the purchase of our new home. She was attentive, diligent, personable and completely knowledgeable. She delivered the price we wanted on the sale of our previous home, and found the perfect new house for us! We just love our new home! I trust Andrea with all of our real estate needs and suggest you do the same! You will not be disappointed!
