    Gary and Trudy were extremely professional, and made the entire process from selling our home, to purchasing the new, one smooth and worry free. They were in constant contact with us, keeping us up to date on any developments throughout the process. They're knowledge and attentiveness made what could normally be a stressful time completely stress free. Thank you Gary and Trudy and your wonderful team for helping us find the perfect fit for our family.

    Gary and Trudi are absolutely amazing to work with. They helped me find my first house in Lubbock back in 2011 and then they helped me sell that same house in 2019 when we decided to move to Colorado. I would not have chosen anyone else to work with. They are the best in business and they truly care about making sure that you are happy and comfortable with your decisions. You should definitely us them for all your future home buying and selling needs. You will not be disappointment.

    Gary and Trudi have helped so much in both buying our house (back in 2009) and then selling the house just recently. The amount of effort they put into making sure 1) we were OK, 2) we had minimal stress on our end, 3) making the process as painless as possible really made the whole selling process so much easier to deal with. They were extremely patient with us, explaining the same things over and over to us until we [better] understood what was going on. The people they recommended for repairs on our house were all very trustworthy and worked with us to help get the house ready for sale. Even they had nothing but good things to say about both Gary and Trudi. We can't be grateful enough to the amount of time, dedication, and effort - and amazing customer service - they put in. It really made everything much easier to handle. They really went above and beyond to ensure we could get our house sold with the least amount of stress possible on our end.

    Trustworthy. Dependable. Treats others with consideration and respect. I think you should know that Gary and Trudie will treat you well regardless of whether you are a "big-buyer" or a "small-buyer". They know that being true to their customers is what makes a seller great. They are humble and give credit for their successes to their creator, God. They know that Lubbock is still small and they value each one they help in the very meaningful quest of home ownership.

    I "interviewed" three Dave Ramsey ELP's for a realtor. Before we met Gary we had already set our mind on another realtor. When he called he really did a sales job over the phone and convinced me to let him visit with us! I'm so glad he persevered. He was absolutely the best, THE BEST! He listened to us, knowledgeably addressed our concerns and questions, and was so personable. Gary worked so hard for eight months from the time we first talked until we sold our house and bought the house we really wanted. We had a few setbacks but he didn't give up, and he encouraged us to hang in. We feel like we not only have the best outcome with our house but we also gained a friend.

    Deborah gave Gary 5 stars out of 5
    Gary and his team helped us buy our home in Lubbock. He was a referral from a friend and he far exceeded our expectations. Gary was responsive to our timeline and available when we needed him to be. He is a clear communicator, always answering our questions honestly, even if the information was not exactly what we wanted to hear. His knowledge and close analysis of the local market activity helped us find the right home at the right price. He is a consummate professional and we are thankful to now call Gary and Trudy friends.

    Gary Owens service is by far the best and most professional I have seen. Incredible attention to detail, responsiveness, while always making sure the home is the right fit for his clients. His team is the best in West Texas. Would not use anyone else.

    Ryan gave Gary 5 stars out of 5
    My family was relocating to Lubbock during the summer. We had three different unrelated acquaintances and friends tell us to use Gary Owen. That tells you how good Gary is at his job and he did not disappoint! Gary was extremely informative and was amazingly diligent in his correspondence. I was worried it would prove difficult working with someone when we did not live in the area, but Gary was always available to talk with us and walk us through every step of the process, even beyond the final sale of the home. Gary is very knowledgeable about the Lubbock area and you simply cannot go wrong giving him a call when it is time to buy or sell your home.

    Gary is hands down the best realtor in Lubbock. Its is so easy to work with him and be completely confident that he posses the knowledge and skills to handle your best interests with ease. The first time we met Gary we were putting our small home on the market. He treated us with respect and gave us all his time and effort even though it was a small inexpensive home. When we searched for our new home he listened intently to our wants and showed us relevant properties within our budget. He handled all meetings and paperwork with efficiency and professionalism. I feel so fortunate to have met him and will use his services in the future for myself and all friends and family.

    A Return to ‘Normal’? The State of Real Estate in

    A Return to 'Normal'? The State of Real Estate in 2022  Last year was one for the real estate history books. The pandemic helped usher in a buying frenzy that caused home prices to soar nationwide by a record 19.9% between August 2020 and August 2021.1 However, there were signs in the fourth quarter that the red-hot housing market was beginning to simmer down. In the month of October, only 60.3% of sales involved a bidding war—down from a high of 74.5% in April.2 While this trend ...
