Fantastic! That is the word that describes our experience with Vicki. Vicki is an extremely professional business woman, who definitely knows all the secrets, shortcuts and intricacies of the real estate market. She made the selling of our 25-year old house a breeze. And a short breeze at that – she sold our house within 2 weeks of listing! Woo-hoo!!
Vicki has a very high level of integrity in all her business dealings. She is honest, diplomatic and a total fighter/scrapper when it comes to getting everything possible for her client. Before we met Vicki, we always thought that real estate agents had an easy, rather cushy job. That is definitely NOT the case with Vicki; she works tirelessly; ALWAYS putting forth 100+% “behind the scenes” effort.
All we can say is “A+++” for Vicki. Whoever engages Vicki as their real estate agent will be delighted.

“I could go on for pages about Vicki's expertise. But here's all you need to know -- if you're buying or selling a house in or near Marysville, Ohio.... the only name you need to know is Vicki Owens. Period.
Not only is she tactfully aggressive, but it seems at times she's literally working magic behind the scenes to make things happen for you. She was incredibly beneficial with our financing, she worked miracles in the unbelievably stressful and tight time-line we had to work within, she works weekends, she works nights, she gave us her moving truck for free for days, it always seemed like she was somehow three steps ahead of the game at every turn -- it truly was an amazing experience to do business with her.... not to mention our kids fell in love with her instantly and couldn't wait to see her every time we went to look at homes.
I can't recommend her highly enough. She's a "Must Have" if you're buying or selling a home in or near Marysville. It's that simple.” Toby Hord, January 2011, Regarding our recent home purchase in Marysville's Scott Farms.
WOW in contract and SOLD in 45 Days! This was WAY more than I expected with the market the way that it is these days. . . Thanks so much for all of your consultation and taking me through every step of the way, even from Arizona! So glad that the house is SOLD!!! And WOW they are even closing a week early to have this done by New Years!! Connie Mazieka, RE: 300 Scott Farms Blvd, Marysville, December 2010
Happy Holidays Vicki & Sherrill! Thank you so much for your great service and attention in selling our home! We are so happy to be closing before Christmas!! It was wonderful getting to know and working with the two of you!. . . I wish we all could have spent more time together before our move to Idaho! Mike & Robyn Darnell, 19279 Northwest Parkway, Marysville 12/2010
We want to take this opportunity to say a heartfelt thank you for your tireless work during the sale of our home. We are simply amazed that you generated more showings in 6 months (and half of those months were bad weather winter months !) than we previously had in a year with another brokerage. Your recommendations were not always what we wanted to hear, but were definitely what we needed to hear. We so appreciated your honesty with us and we know that is why we were finally able to sell our house in this difficult market.
We always felt like we were a team with you and that you were looking out for our best interest. You were never too busy to speak with us. You worked hard for us and we noticed. Your service was superior and we would not hesitate to recommend you to anyone seeking a realtor who is honest, forthright and a delight with whom to work!
Thank you, Vicki, for your impressive professionalism, knowledge, and support throughout this process. We could not have done this without you !

Vicki Owens, with Andy Siers Realtors, was very attentive to our needs and special situation which resulted in a successful sale. We had to insert a relocation company in the middle of our contract and Vicki happily worked one on one with the specialist and helped the transition go as smoothly as possible. She was very capable and persistant. We enjoyed working with her.
Thanks again for everything!

May 2007 . . . . Sold our first home and moved up to our next. . . . .
It was such a pleasure working with Vicki. She gave us the right tools and information to help us sell our house in 9 days! Her positive attitude and professional demeanor made the entire process enjoyable. Then when it was time to buy our new house, she dedicated so much time and effort to us. She really made sure we found the home of our dreams. -Amanda & James Wilson

Barbara and I want to say Thank You!!!
After initially interviewing you, we selected another Realtor. But after 6 months, we came back for one main reason Marketing!!!!!! Your approach to the marketing of property.
You proceeded to simply amaze us at the lengths with which you went.
- The mass announcement to the central Ohio real estate audience.
- An open house on December 17th (The week before Christmas)
- The pictures were amazing. And you retook a few for us that we did not think presented well on the internet.
What fact that was simply amazing though:
Between mid-November and through the offer in late February we had:
- Two weekends with no showings
- Super Bowl Weekend
- There were typically one to three showings each week
What makes this all amazing is that in the middle of winter with a sluggish home market you pulled through with your marketing plan and sold the property.
As for your customer service........Top Notch. We explained the level of communication and types that we would be comfortable with and you held to that......Enough but not overwhelming.
We can not Thank You enough.
Thank You and many more sales to you.

Regarding Centralized Showing service, client listed with Vicki January 2007
Just wanted you to know, I love that CSS site! How cool to be able to check on the feedback comments about the showing so quickly! I like too that I'll be able to easily see how many showings we have had. I was always counting realtor cards before(when my home was previously listed with another brokerage). When you talk to other potential sellers, you should use this site (www.showings.com) as a selling point. What a great tool!
October 11, 2006
Dear Vicki, Just wanted to thank you again for all that you did to help me purchase my first house. It's all coming together slowly, but quite nicely. I will be sure to pass your name along to anyone that I know wanting to buy or sell. Good luck and take care,
Cortney & Nate's First House!

Hi Vicki. Nate and I just wanted to drop you a quick note to let you know how
happy we are in our home. You really made buying our 1st home a great and easy
experience. We have big plans for our home in the upcoming year. Hope you are
doing well. Best Wishes!

We want to take a moment to express to you our sincere thanks for the recent sale of our home on Park Avenue in Marysville. Words cannot begin to tell you how completely satisfied and pleased we were with your commitment to us as our Realtor. You were (are) tremendous and we will recommend you to anyone trying to sell or buy a home.
Since our home had previously been with a different brokerage for 11 months, we felt it was time to change agents. We chose you and Andy Siers, Realtors, because of two reasons: 1) your excellent advertising and 2) a personal recommendation from someone who had utilized your services. We took a chance with Vicki Owens and Andy Siers, Realtors, and we never looked back!
Vicki, you listed our home, answered all of our questions, and were always available when we needed you. Thank you! You exceeded all of our expectations as our Realtor. You sold our home at list price within two months! Wow! You made the whole process run smoothly.
We not only gained the sale of our house, but just as importantly, we gained a friendship with Vicki Owens!! We look forward to seeing you again soon! Sincerely, Bob & Jill Sements, Marysville, Ohio
We just wanted to let you know how much we appreciate all you have done for us. Working with you was a great comfort in an otherwise very trying experience (in purchasing our home). Even though our housing needs led us to Mt Vernon instead of Marysville, you were always just a call away with answers to our endless questions. We are finally getting settled into our new house and emptying the last of the boxes. We cannot thank you, and Andy Siers, Realtors, enough! In a time when money's tight, the money saved by using your moving truck really helped and saved us several trips in our move out east. Although we hope to have moved for the last time, I would be sure to call you first if we needed an agent, or even real estate advice. We have, and will continue to recommend you and Andy Siers, Realtors, to anyone needing the service of an agent whether buying or selling and wish you all of the very best in the future. You are truly one in a million, and the other Realtors in this highly competitive market could learn a lot from you.
Our most heartfelt thanks, John, Jennifer, Jessica & Jaimie Wilds (moved into their home June 2006)
We just wanted to thank you again for the Home Depot gift card closing gift. That was such a kind gesture! It will definitely come in handy as we have already been busy preparing our home for the move (more ideas than time & energy!) We also want to thank you for all of your help and hard work! You made everything seem so easy and go so smoothly! It's hard to believe the process is already complete! We are very excited about this new stage in our life! Thanks for being a part of it. Rachel & Jerry
P.S. Maybe we'll be looking you up in a few years down the road again. It'll probably take us that long to recouperate from this move :) (April 2006 purchased a home in Hilliard)
We can't say thank you enough for helping us sell our home. Your commitment and patience made our out of state move worry free. You didn't just "say" the "right" things you put your words into actions and made the selling process smooth. Thanks again for sticking by us and being honest. We couldn't have done it with any other realtor! With many, many thanks. ~The Casper Family: Erin, Ryan, Owen and Nolan 2/28/06 (former Mill Valley residents)
WOW! I can't believe we are here already! It seems like only yesterday that we decided to put our house on the market in order for us to relocate. Now 2 months later we are here sitting in our new home. Vicki, Brian and I want to Thank You for your wonderful work you did in selling our home. The 18 days that our house was on the market seemed so easy. Your patience and understanding were great and you made our job effortless. Being first time home sellers we didn't know what to expect but your honesty, respect and knowledge made us believers in you. You are familiar with the market in Marysville and you used every tool possible to market our house- THAT IS COMMITMENT! Thank you Vicki for giving us the chance to pursue our dreams! 10/31/05
Brian and Ellyse Sites (former residents of Mill Valley)
A note from Loren M. of Fridley, Minnesota: Sorry, I'm not allowed to use my email at work for this during working hours. So, I stopped in this Saturday to email you. Please call me if you can. Reason we contacted you from other agents is that you have a very good web site! We will be retiring in 2 - 4 years and in the process of determining a good retirement location. We want to retire outside a major city like Columbus that has an airport. Other resources shown for Marysville is in line with what we're looking for.
Recv'd August 20, 2005
Hi Vicki! I saw your listings on realtor.com and figured I'd check out your website. Love It! We are planning a move back to the Columbus area in late 2008 or early 2009. I am doing initial research to see what's out there now and also information on taxes, community growth etc. I'll be keeping your site on my favorites and as we get closer I'll be contacting you. Thanks again for a super navigatable site!
Betty Lawson, Tallahassee, Florida, January 2006
When my 70 year old father finally decided that it was time to relocate from Cincinnati to Columbus to live near his children, he didn't know where and how to start looking for a new home. He had lived in the same house for over 33 years of his life and was no longer familiar with current property values. One day, I was helping my dad look at condos, townhomes, and apartments around the Columbus area. We were both unsatisfied and frustrated with these options; my dad realized he would prefer to have his own house if he could afford it and take care of it. Since I live in Marysville, I looked in the Marysville paper that I had with me to check out the prices of homes on the market in that area, and there I found Vicki's number! The amazing thing was, I called her right then--and she was willing to meet us that same day!
Vicki restored my faith in real estate agents! I had contacted MANY real estates agents by phone AND in person (Dublin, Plain City and Marysville areas), and none of them took the time to ask about the type of house I was looking for, the "gotta have's", etc, nor did they stay in contact. After calling Vicki regarding a house that she had listed, I discovered not only was she exceptional at selling houses, but she actually took to heart, my search for my dream house. I almost wish I hadn't found my recently purchased house yet, because I truly enjoyed my house hunting experiences, with Vicki's expertise, her desire and willingness to spend 24/7 to do whatever it took to find that house with all those "gotta have's". I can never thank her enough for making a process that can be so stressful, so much fun and painless! Denise M. Hanscel Buyer - Cardinal Health
Hi Vicki, Wanted to let you know that the service and professional guidance I received from you on the buying of my new house and the selling of the old, was outstanding. Just the kind of team work I was looking for. After talking to you the first time, pertaining to one of your listings, I found out you were new in the business which made me a little leery. I started thinking maybe I should get a more seasoned realtor, but decided to give you a chance. Boy was I pleased with what I had found! After working with you, I know you will go to the top of your profession. In the past I have had many dealing in real-estate involving many realtors. I told you exactly what I expected and what it would take for us to work together. You surpassed all my wishes, not only in being prompt for all our meetings but also always returning my calls and emails in a timely manner. It sometimes took several days to get a reply from the others, seems some just get too important! Your down to earth demeanor, truthfulness, and knowing your business is what sets you apart from many. I will refer you to anyone that should need a true realtor and look forward to working with you again. Best Wishes,Marsha Shirin, Dublin
Vicki. . .The process of home buying has so many aspects. I’d like to take the time to thank you for approaching each one with experience, commitment, respect, and professionalism mixed with a ‘real person attitude.’ You worked for us tirelessly through each step, each explanation regardless of personal setbacks and weekend schedules.
From the moment I contacted you the ball started rolling and didn’t stop until the day the U-Haul truck pulled into our new driveway.
Finding a realtor can be just as important as finding the right doctor. The information, financial and personal, that is put forth on the table should be in trusted hands. In our view it’s not so much as a house to purchase it’s a home to raise children. In your case you saw the world from where we were standing.
Living in two different states our family was divided. The urgency to get back together was a must; however, not so quickly a wrong choice was made for the ‘whole picture.’ You provided us homes that would put us in a community that too, would fit our needs. The little perks of your abilities were apparent when you showed us schools, provided us with school forms, recommended restaurants, guided us to shopping – basically, introduced us to community possibilities vs. just an empty house.
Another equally fantastic aspect of working with you is who you align yourself with. From the Loan Officer to the Inspector to the closing agency you know what kind of people will get the job done efficiently, effectively and above all in a friendly manner. Each encounter compliments the one before. It was never a person for your advantage or commitment only. Your judgment on recommendations is highly commendable.
We know we weren’t the only family or individual you were currently working with. Although, through the process you made time for correspondence on updates, to see how we were doing in general plus ready for any explanation of the process that was needed.
In the past three to four years we’ve researched purchasing a home or building. We’ve met several people in that journey. Our tales with the realtors had never been that of worthwhile experiences. Once we’d found financing on our own we provided the realtors with a price range of comfort. We found we were being taken to homes of the realtor’s choice and looking at places not within our means. Ultimately, we would have been benefiting the realtor, not our needs. Time was wasted on everyone’s part. On the flip side we were taken to homes that would not have been efficient because the realtor assumed it would be best. Time was wasted on everyone’s part.
Anxiously, with the children getting older a decision needed to be made and another attempt to be tried. Settling into our new home just five short days ago we know we made the right decision. Working with you and those you recommend we are happy to be living under one beautiful roof. "Thank you" doesn’t seem enough to say; however, it’s filled with enormous meaning. Sincerely, The Bland’s, White Oak Ct, Marysville, Ohio
I feel very fortunate to have worked with Vicki Owens to purchase my first home. She was always available to answer my many questions and worked tirelessly to ensure that I closed on the house that I wanted. In my situation, I wasn't exactly sure what I was looking for at first. Vicki showed us just about all of the houses in the area and price range that I discussed with her. When I did find the house that I liked, Vicki was extremely accommodating, going so far as to show the house several times, even on short notice when I had friends that wanted a tour while they were in town. Once we entered negotiations on the house, Vicki kept me fully informed while setting up all of the appointments necessary to close on the house. She managed to keep all of the repairs and inspections in order, so that I was not burdened by dealing with all of the details. She set up appointments with quality, local companies, and I would feel comfortable working with them again if I ever need more work done on the house. Just before the closing when I was calling Vicki several times a day, she was always available and willing to talk, even if there wasn't any new information. Working with Vicki, she made me feel very comfortable and always kept my interests foremost in her actions. Vicki made my first home buying experience a success. James G. Lavery 123 Chestnut Street Marysville, OH 43040
Vicki, Sarah and I wanted to take a moment to thank you. We had a very rocky first go at selling our land and we had almost lost all faith. Once you came aboard everything fell into place. We still do not believe how quickly you sold our 10 acre lot, while maintaining a fair asking price! We would recommend your services only to buyers/sellers who want the following: Honesty, Respect, Knowledge, and the most important trait - Empathy. You really understand the emotional roller coaster that your customers are going on.
Thanks again! Matt and Sarah Barrett, Marysville, Ohio
Thanks for all your help finding a house, I am almost settled, you made it easy to do. Thanks a bunch and good luck. I will always pass the word out about you and your company. Take care Wendy (first time home buyer, Marysville)
I am very fortunate that I listed my home in Marysville with Vicki Owens. I had my home on the market for several months For Sale by Owner. I was not having much luck selling the house and after interviewing three real estate agents, I decided to list with Vicki. Within 2 weeks my house was in contract. I was amazed. Vicki walked me through the whole process and stayed on top of things very well. She was always available, via either phone or email to answer any questions that I had. Working with Vicki, she made me feel very comfortable throughout the process and made my home selling a success. Vicki was able to save me money in allowing me to use her company’s moving truck therefore not having to hire a moving company or a rental truck. I would recommend Vicki to anyone, and for sure on my next selling or buying of a home, I will be contacting Vicki. I would personally like to thank Vicki for her professionalism and her support throughout the sometimes stress time of selling a home. 524 Garden Drive, Marysville David B. Andres
Vicki - Sincerely ....Thank you for your professionalism, patience and never ending drive to sell our house on Carmel Drive in Green Pastures of Marysville. Behind the scenes we had so many other obligations in our lives and two mortgage payments were too much to handle. Your commitment was obvious from the moment you listed our home, we appreciate your hardwork and dedication and wish you many years of success. We will definitely keep your number close at hand for future reference. Take care, it was great working with you.Stacie Capotosto, Ostrander, Ohio
Vicki's enthusiasm for her work won us over immediately! Her dedication and never-ending patience to help us find the right home for my father never ceased to amaze me. We looked for hours on many different days, over several months, at different houses in Marysville, Plain City, Dublin, and Worthington. My dad is extremely hard-to-please; he had an exact image in his mind of the things he wanted in a home--in other words, he was very finicky! Typically, after a day of looking at 3-4 houses, he would fuss about how each home was missing this or that. Vicki, however, would smile and laugh, tease him a little to get him to lighten up, then ask us when we wanted to go looking again. She was never frustrated, rushed or upset, even though she had to invest so much time with us. My father, who is the type who doesn't trust realtors, really liked Vicki and felt very comfortable with her. You won't find another realtor that is more geniune, dedicated and hardworking than Vicki. If Angie's List allowed realtor listings, Vicki would have a A+!! Thanks to Vicki, my dad has an beautiful and affordable new home in Worthington!
