When you first meet Lance Owens, the first thing you most likely will remember is his smile. His engaging affability is one reason why he is one of the top salespeople at LUVA Real Estate.
Lance started his successful real estate career in Kailua-Kona in 2004 after a lengthy sales and management career in Las Vegas, Honolulu and New York City.
Lance is an asset to the real estate industry as a passionate leader. He has volunteered on the local West Hawaii Association of Realtors board for many years and spent last year as the President of the Board advocating for private property rights on the island, especially in light of the new restrictions on vacation rentals. He is about to assume a new role on the Board of Directors of the Hawaii Association of Realtors to deal with statewide issues.
Lance is a proud early adopter of social media and digital marketing techniques in the marketing of properties and blogs consistently about the housing market on Active Rain. He specializes in working with long distance clients, utilizing technology such as videos on YouTube, Facetime on iPhones, and Skype in order to show his clients “real time” video of the homes they are interested in purchasing from afar. He also shares his knowledge of the market by sharing monthly housing market reports via Facetime Live in a Facebook real estate group for potential homebuyers, where he answers questions about the market and the nuances of moving to the Big Island.
Lance and his wife, Kimi make a powerful real estate team ensuring clients are always receiving the communication they need about their home search or where they are in the transaction or marketing of their home. Currently building a home of his own in Kaloko, Lance has hands on experience with buying and renovating a home, purchasing land and getting building permits, agriculture property (where he currently resides with his family, two horses, 3.cows, 2 dogs and 2 cats next to a coffee farm in South Kona), and investment property.
A fan of fast cars, flying drones, cooking for friends on his lanai and spending time with his wife and son, Lance embodies the work hard/play hard lifestyle while sharing his Aloha with clients and friends alike.
However, it is his clients that share some of the best clues to Lance’s success:
“Once we found a home their guidance and hard work were absolutely indispensable to us. Great negotiating skills, responsiveness to our many questions and concerns via text, email and Skype, and through the entire closing process holding our hands and digging up and/or checking all documents with our best interests in mind. There was so much to keep track of and so much we weren’t even aware of that needed to be checked, we are beyond grateful that we worked with Lance.”
“Lance Owens is the one of the best Realtors in Kona. He has done a couple of my real estate purchases and is always above board on expectations and knows the Kona market as well as anyone. He has helped tremendously in getting the right deal at the right price. He is always available and very generous with his time, a gift when you are as busy as he is. Lance is trustworthy to handle your biggest investment.”
If you are looking for a knowledgeable local market expert to help you buy or sell a home in West Hawaii, Lance is a fantastic choice.
