Bought a home in 2014.
We had a wonderful experience with Maria. I actually found the home we purchased on Craigslist, but we had a long list of others we wanted to see as well. Coming from out of state, our schedule was limited, but Maria worked with us and did a lot of background preparations before we arrived - including contacting and touring the home that wasn't on MLS. The whole process was very smooth. We valued Maria's experience both in real estate and contracting. We also appreciated her connections as we had a great experience with her preferred lender, Cardinal Financial. The best part: after an exhausting out-of-state move, Maria had sent in a cleaning crew to make sure the house was presentable upon arrival and the front lights were on the evening we arrived giving a real "welcome home" feel.

Maria is one of the best independent realtors in the Boone and Blowing Rock area. She was very experienced as she also worked as a general contractor buying lots and building new houses. She knows what she's talking about. I especially liked that she always tried to find out what are the problems of a particular house, which is very beneficial for negotiating the price for her clients.She was very patient and diligent. She works on the weekends if necessary. She answered my emails and voice emails in a prompt manner. She recommended a mortgage broker who offered the most competitive rate in the great Charlotte area. She was very understanding and did not push us to make decisions, considering that we were first time home buyers. It would have been an ordeal to buy a house in the Boone area if we didn't have her help. I strongly recommend her to future home buyers!

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $400K in Blowing Rock, NC.
I will recommend Maria Owens very highly. Thanks to her knowledge and expertise we were able to negotiate a short sale purchase that was very difficult to put together. It took almost eight months from contract to closing, and Maria was there every step of the way. We now own a beautiful house in the mountains and at a great price.

Yes, You did get a wonderful home at an amazing price. Worth the 8 month wait. Don't forget the Guava pastries the next time you are here in the mountains. Maria

My wife and I would plan a weekend trip to the high country; Boone, Blowing Rock, Banner Elk for a mountain house purchase. Ms. Owens would have a plan to visit several places that met our parameters. Once we zeroed in on a property, she helped us land the deal through someone else's listing, a mortgage company and right through to closing. Even post closing, she has stayed in contact with helpful advice.

Recently I worked with Maria on a property that she was representing on Auction.com. I have worked with her on other investment properties in the area. Maria helped me get through the maze of the Auction buying process. When I finish renovating this home I will for sure list it with her due to her marketing and professionalism. I would recommend Maria Owens fir anyone that is buying or selling property.

We moved to Boone and needed to find a rental first. Even though Maria does not receive compensation for assisting with rentals, she gave us first class service during that process and located a great home for us to rent. When we were ready to buy, her quick responsiveness sold us. Weekends, nights, or anytime during the day, she responded immediately. Maria took to time to get to know our wish list, and showed us homes that matched our criteria. Once we closed, Maria continued to reach out to help us as we transitioned. She knows Boone and the surrounding areas. You will be well cared for with Owens Realty.

Our experience with Maria as our realtor in buying a home in Blowing Rock, has been nothing short of amazing. Being from out of state has been a challenge in the past, but when we enlisted Maria, she made the entire process not only possible but easy for us. Her extensive construction background was key for us. She was very open, frank and honest regarding homes that could and did have major issues, and that we should steer clear of. On the other hand, when we did find our perfect place, she helped us to realize which inspection items were little things and which ones could cost more than anticipated. She even arranged for contractors to come in and take care of repairs, move furniture, decorate, and even found a renter for us! We closed weeks ago and she is STILL spending hours and hours helping us on our new house. I promise you will never find a more dedicated, knowledgable, hard working, tireless real estate professional. Ever. Maria is in a league of her own and on top of all that...she is an wonderful, generous, honest to goodness, warm hearted, incredible human being.

Wonderful experience with Maria Owens in our hunt for a cabin near Blowing Rock, NC. After dreaming of a cabin for over a year, we sought out a professional who knew the neighborhoods around Blowing Rock. Maria Owens listened to our story and recommended locations that fit our desires. She understood our price range and the best possibilities for us. Therefore, time was not wasted. As we wanted a second home with character, Maria assured us that a little work will go a long way to make our cabin a cozy home. She not only found us the perfect cabin, Maria recommended sources for home improvements, provided new landscaping upon move in, and brought us groceries on that busy move-in weekend. Maria Owens is a gem.

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $300K in Blowing Rock, NC.
I found Maria on the Zillow website when I was checking houses out in Blowing Rock. I read the reviews and liked what I read, so I gave Maria a call. She lived up to everything that all the reviews said about her. My husband and I were very impressed with Maria and would highly recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell. Maria helped us through the whole process, from inspection to closing. And as is the case for a lot of people buying a second home, you are often not able to be there in person for inspections etc., and Maria was there for us to make sure we were taken care of. She definitely went above and beyond any realtor we have ever had. There were so many "extra" things Maria did during our purchase, which she considered part of her service, that we were amazed. You don't often run across this kind of service these days! Thanks Maria

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $50K in Blowing Rock, NC.
I had an excellent relationship with Maria. She is very easy to talk to and knows the real estate game well. From offer acceptance to closing took 3 days. She wasted no time in getting things done. Now approx. 4 weeks after closing she is still helping me with advice, directions and phone numbers. I would recommend her highly. Carl Stilwell
