Testimonials

She found me a perfect home

In 2015, Rowena Lusby sold my home for approximately $275K in Vancouver, WA.

Rowena Lusby has been my Southwest Washington realtor for more than 10 years and has represented me as both a buyer and a selling agent.  As a life long Vancouver resident, her knowledge of the Clark County has proven to be excellent.  Rowena's knowledge for neighborhoods, inventory, and market  conditions netted me a perfect home when I moved to Vancouver, and 12 years later when I was relocated for my career, she insisted on listing my home for significantly more than was my belief.  She explained a few key characteristics that I had overlooked in regards to inventory/timing, and she also strongly encouraged me to do a couple of small details to make certain my house showed well.  I was out of town house hunting for a new home back in the MidWest when I was made aware that I had a large dormant wasp nest in my crawl space.  Rowena left me a message and when I called her back she had already contacted the professionals who had scheduled the removal of the nest on the following day.  Rowena sold my house in less than 96 hours for more than I expected.  I experienced first rate and professional customer service from Rowena.  I believe that Rowena Lusby is the best residential realtor in Clark County.

Rowena goes the extra mile

Bought a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $550K in Vancouver, WA.

We give her 10 stars!  She goes the extra mile in every detail, and got us into the home of our dreams!!  Would never work with anyone else. So fast, so attentive, so thorough, and so delightful.

Thank you so very much. I am so thankful I get to work such incredible people. Enjoy your beautiful home!

Rowena knows how to sell a house!

Sold a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $225K in Vancouver, WA.

Rowena knows how to sell a house!  Rowena was easy to work with and accommodated my  second shift schedule. She helped me find contractors to finish up work that my house needed. Rowena made feel at ease with the listing price by providing a notebook of comps around the around. Any time I had a  question she was there for me. I highly recommend working with Rowena; if I was purchasing I would use her as my agent.

Thank you so much for such a nice review. So thankful for you!

Smooth and Painless Process

Bought a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $275K in Ridgefield, WA.

Rowena and Char made what could have been a very stressful experience as smooth and painless as possible... Enjoyable, even! Rowena quickly understood what it was that we were looking for (maybe even before we truly knew) and also taught us what to look for - both good and bad. So caring and  helpful in the process. Thank you, Ro!

rowena lusby, real estate brokerResponse from Rowena Lusby on 08/07/2015

Thank you so much! I am so happy you love your new home. It is so perfect for you and your family. I miss seeing you but sure love that we were able to find such a perfect home for you both. Sincerely, Rowena

Single Family Home Sold Vancouver WA

Sold a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $325K in Vancouver, WA.

Rowena and her team have experience and the right resources to get your sale closed quickly and efficiently.  We would absolutely ask her to handle any real-estate transaction we have in Oregon or Washington, and continue to tell friends considering buying or selling what a joy it was to work with  her.

After a job move and a year of renting out our house, we decided to sell.  There are lots of agents to choose from, and we didn’t have a referral source, but after looking at other reviews and Rowena’s sales numbers (really – take a look), we decided to engage her. 

Traveling back to help facilitate the sale wasn’t a possibility, but Rowena made it completely unnecessary to do so.  She has lots of experience with remote sellers.  Rowena listened to our concerns and aligned her sales strategy with our priorities.

Rowena’s team did a great job marketing our property.  Rowena struck a great balance between getting us the big picture items we needed to know about and taking care of the little details we didn’t.  We got lots of traffic and interest, and went under contract near our asking price in under 3 weeks.  Rowena kept us involved when we needed to be, and when an issue came up during the inspection, she had a list of trusted folks who could get moving on it quickly to keep our closing on track.  Rowena helped the title company modify their approach to meet our timeline and availability, and we closed on time with no drama or hassles (Stewart Title Vancouver office – they also get several thumbs way up).      

There are lots of agents out there, and I’m sure some might have delivered on some of this, but Rowena puts it all together flawlessly.  We would and do recommend her to anyone talking about buying or selling property in the area.

Thank you so much for allowing us to be of service to you and your family. We are here if you ever need anything at all. Sincerely, Rowena

Integrity and Commitment

Listed, but didn't sell my home in 2014 in Fishers Landing East, Camas, WA 98607.

I have known and worked with numerous real estate agents, none compare to Rowena. If you are looking for an agent who is committed to you, has ultimate integrity, listens to your needs and goes the extra mile you should contact Rowena. She is amazing and will be our realtor for all our real estate needs.

Professional and Capable

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $200K in Vancouver Heights, Vancouver, WA.

We live in Montana and owned a home in Vancouver.  Before we listed our Vancouver home I read reviews and, based on those reviews, we decided to list with Rowena.  It was the BEST DECISION we could have possible made.  The home was older and  there were some issues that we needed to deal with in  order to satisfy home inspections and get the house sold.  Rowena went far beyond what would be expected of any agent to assist us in making all necessary repairs and improvements. Her knowledge of the local contractors and service agencies was invaluable.  She communicated with us almost daily throughout the entire listing  and was always there to answer questions or concerns.  As a professional land surveyor, I have dealt with many real estate agents over the last forty years and Rowena is without a doubt the most professional and capable agent I have dealt with. She is great! I HIGHLY recommend her.

Vancouver WA Single Family Home Sold

Sold a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $250K in Vancouver, WA.

My husband and I had our house on the market for over a year before we did more intensive research and made the decision to change realtors and go with Rowena. She had had many sales (9 in the previous month!) with houses very similar to ours, and had sold and closed them all in about 4-6 weeks. After struggling multiple times with failed closes, we were at the end of our rope and hoped her expertise would pay off. When we called her, she was extremely warm, pleasant and professional and was over to our house the very next day to sign paperwork and do our walk-thru. She had professional pics taken the day after that and our house was listed that Friday! Within a few days of meeting her, we had a new plan, new pictures and great hope that we could be successful. When we listed, we had no idea exactly what to expect, but 30 showings over the weekend and 7 offers by that Sunday night was unreal! She guided us through the closing process, taking care of any questions or concerns that we had, and we closed within 5 weeks. She marketed our house perfectly, and spent so much time making sure it would be a success that we'll always use her in the future and recommend her to all our friends and family! Thank you So Much Rowena!! rowena lusby, real estate brokerResponse from Rowena Lusby on 07/21/2015

Thank you so much for allowing us to serve you. We so enjoyed your whole family and being of service to you. So glad it worked out so well! Sincerely, Rowena

Rowena is the Best of the Best

Thank you so much! You made it so easy to sell your amazing home because you are an incredible decorator. I can't wait to come see all your beautiful designs and creations in your new home. Sincerely, Rowena

Rowena Directed the Sale of our Home

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $400K in Vancouver, WA.

Rowena directed the sale of our home in Salmon Creek. She provided excellent pre-sale advice of getting an owner-ordered inspection, and then fixing all issues identified by the inspection. She also brought expert photogs, using separate exterior and interior photographers to produce jaw-dropping  pics for Zillow and MLS sites! We subsequently realized a bidding war between two buyers, and settled for $25,000 over our listed price. Rowena finally closed the sale and negotiate a rent-back contract. If you want to sell your house for top-dollar, you NEED Rowena!

rowena lusby, real estate brokerResponse from Rowena Lusby on 07/21/2015

Thank you so very much for taking the time to write this wonderful review. I truly appreciate it and am honored. I hope you are having an amazing adventure, and fun, in your new home and location! Sincerely, Rowena

This Woman Hit the Ground Running!

Sold a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $325K in Riveridge, Vancouver, WA.

We researched and "interviewed" quite a few agents prior to selecting Rowena. She met us at our home armed with all the necessary items we needed and wanted to assist in our decision. She toured our home and told us she could sell it in four days. We came to a price to list it at and this woman hit  the ground RUNNING!! She is a wealth of knowledge and has an awesome support staff. This woman is on top of her game. She will get an answer for you quickly. She's got the energy of a Terrier!! She's non-stop. Very personable. Very professional. She's spot on!! She's the one that you want to list your home!! Top Shelf all the way.

rowena lusby, real estate brokerResponse from Rowena Lusby on 07/21/2015

Thank you so much for your wonderful review. So gracious and appreciated! I truly am thankful I was able to help you in your transition to your new adventures and dreams! Enjoy your moments and time in retirement. Sincerely, Rowena

Rowena Treated us Like Family

Bought a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $275K in Vancouver, WA.

It was a wonderful experience buying a home with the help of Rowena Lusby. Ro treated us like family and once she knew what we were looking for, she only showed us homes she knew fit our criteria. I would not hesitate to use Ro again and if you are looking for the very best realtor in Vancouver,  Go with Ro.  She has become a good friend and some one I would trust at all times.  She went above and beyond for us, and for that we will always be appreciative.  Mike and Bobbi Augustine

rowena lusby, real estate brokerResponse from Rowena Lusby on 07/21/2015

Thank you so much for allowing me to be of service to you, today and always. I am always here if you need anything. Hopefully you are enjoying your moments and time together close to family and your four leggeds are loving their new backyard. Sincerely, Rowena

Rowena is a Bundle of Energy

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 in Camas, WA.

Rowena is a little bundle of energy.  She is extremely knowledgeable, hardworking, is able to ask the tough questions, yet incredibly polite and thoughtful.  She often displays that she cares more about her clients then the business side of things.  For example, when we were first getting our house  ready to list with her, she had a client that expressed the desire to purchase a house just like ours.  Rather than listing our house and then telling them about it, she got us together and helped us put together a deal without the typical costs of selling a home.  Unfortunately, our buyers were unable to sell their house and we ended up listing the house with Rowena anyway.  She priced our house correctly and helped us navigate safely through the real estate sales and escrow maze    We could not imagine using anyone else in the area and would highly recommend her to all.

rowena lusby, real estate brokerResponse from Rowena Lusby on 07/21/2015

Thank you so much! Great people deserve wonderful things! You two are amazing! Thank you for allowing me to be of service to you. Sincerely, Rowena

Home Sold in Vancouver WA

Sold a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $175K in Fruit Valley, Vancouver, WA.

Rowena is AWESOME!!! She sold our house and found us our new house.

She knows the areas so well, she knew what areas we would like and would not like. She is so fast at responding to our questions! I emailed and texted her a million questions and she didn't complain once. No matter how  annoying I got!

She listened to our taste and what type of house we wanted. Rowena is a real estate genius!

While selling our house, she was always on top of it!

If I wanted to see a house, she would meet me that day! Sometimes within an hour of me saying "I LOVE THIS HOUSE!" She would say, well lets go look at it! I had a million questions for her and she knew the answer to everything! If I needed to know something about the house, she would immediately contact the other agent to find out extra details for us.

We bought our first house from her, she sold our first house for us and we bought our 2nd house with her and when it's time for house #3...... Rowena will be there for us like Wonder Woman!

We have experience both buying and selling with Rowena and there's no doubt that you should GO WITH RO! Whether you are buying or selling!

rowena lusby, real estate brokerResponse from Rowena Lusby on 07/21/2015

You guys are the awesome ones! How lucky for me that I was able to be a part of your life during these times. They can be stressful but we made it fun and exciting! I love what you are doing with your new home! Keep send me pictures. Sincerely, Rowena

Rowena and Natalie are Amazing

Sold a home in 2014 in Fircrest, Vancouver, WA 98684.

I cannot say enough good about Rowena and Natalie.  They are amazing.  From the very first meeting, Rowena took charge and made sure I got my house on the market and sold in the short timeframe I had.   Natalie was Johnny-on-the -spot with all details large or small from pictures to inspections to  contractors to closing.   Such a wonderful experience dealing with these two.   I just wish I could take them to AZ with me!!

rowena lusby, real estate brokerResponse from Rowena Lusby on 07/21/2015

Thank you so much for your wonderful review! I am always here to be of service to you, anytime! Hopefully Arizona is beautiful and treating you with kindness! Sincerely, Rowena

Rowena is a thorough agent

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $375K in Camas, WA.

Rowena was a very thorough agent. She helped us tour the area searching for the right neighborhood. She went well above and beyond being present for our home inspection and walk through as we were out of state. We were satisfied with the negotiated price as well as a few other 'extras' with our new  build house. Rowena also stepped in as another professional in the field to help us with a warranty issue four months after being in our house. Her contacts in the home buying industry are vast and she is able to help get quick answers. I  would highly recommend her to anyone wanting the best realtor

rowena lusby, real estate brokerResponse from Rowena Lusby on 07/21/2015

Thank you so much for the wonderful review. You are so gracious and kind. I am always here if you ever need anything. Enjoy your new home and living in Washington State! Sincerely, Rowena

I’d recommend her assistance to anyone.

Rowena was great to work with. It was a tough process, but she really made it easy and as painless as possible. We felt like she was on our team 100% which allowed us to focus on settling into our new home state much more smoothly. I'd recommend her assistance to anyone.

Thank you Rowena for your professionalism, honesty, and sense of humor!

My husband and I couldn't be happier with the job Rowena did in helping us purchase an investment property. Most of the properties we were looking at were short sales which require much more effort and skill on the part of the realtor, and Rowena met the challenge. She located properties that met our criteria and helped us write offers quickly...a must in this competitive investor market. She was an amazing negotiator and was with us every step of the way to answer questions and and smooth any rough patches along the way. Thank you Rowena for your professionalism, honesty, and sense of humor! Eric and Nancy

She just did what she said she would do and we are eternally grateful for that.

We contracted with Rowena to sell our house. We've had some prior bad experiences with people who told us what we wanted to hear, were less than knowledgeable and didn't follow through on anything. Rowena was exactly he opposite. She prevented us from spending thousands of dollars on the house to get it 'ready to sell', told us what the price needed to be to sell it, and then promptly sold it. There was fuss, no bluster, no fanfare. She just did what she said she would do and we are eternally grateful for that. I recommend Rowena with absolutely no hesitation at all. Thank you.

Found New Home in Vancouver WA

Oh my goodness... talk about an individual who gives her heart and soul to her customers! Rowena worked tireless with us to find the home of our dreams. Not only did it have to be the right size, but it had to be the right neighborhood, and we wanted an excellent value. She knows her short sales!!! She warned us honestly that the process could take time, but she worked with the selling agent in such a cooperative manner that the short sale was approved in less than 2 months. Quite the record from what I've heard from other buyers of short sales. Rowena is passionate and genuinely cares. She won't sell you a bill of goods to get the sale and will question your decisions if she is afraid you may be making a mistake, yet allowing you to make your own choices. Row with be the ONLY realtor to whom I refer my friends and family. I've known realtors who make you do all the foot work... she does it all and you'll have fun in the process. Row's greatest asset, besides genuinely loving all her clients (even us demanding and difficult ones) and listening to their unique needs, is her diplomacy and professionalism. Buying and selling a home requires establishing strong and trusting relationships with others in the industry. From home inspectors to loan officers, handymen and painters, Rowena is connected with vendors who love her and bend over to service her clients. You know they will do an excellent job for you as if she hears otherwise, they would be afraid to lose her trust. Meet with Rowena. See if you love her. She

She was kind, knowledgeable, and highly skilled in finding us our first home.

Rowena was the perfect example of professionalism. She was kind, knowledgeable, and highly skilled in finding us our first home. She kept in contact with us through the entire process- was our advocate when we needed it and a friend when the trials of buying our first home while pregnant with twins became burdensome. This experience was a great one because of her! I have already recommended Rowena to several friends and family and I will continue to do so...she's fantastic! ~Veronica C.

I would NEVER use anyone else.

Rowena Lusby is the most professional, quickly responsive, most careing, Intelligent and respectfull realestate person anyone could ever have the honor to work with. I have now sold 3 homes and purchased 2 though her, I would NEVER use anyone else. I could not recommend anyone higher. She is the Best!!

It was a pleasure working with her during the sale of my house.

Rowena is very professional and knowledgeable. It was a pleasure working with her during the sale of my house. She went above and beyond my expectations...she was always available to answer questions and give support during the entire process.

Provided me with everything I needed to make selling my home a painless experience.

Rowena has proven to be incredibly knowledgeable about the market and, more importantly, hugely supportive and helpful in the process of listing my home and getting it sold. I was convinced that I going to have to list my home as a Short Sale and, when all was said and done, I came out with money in my pocket after being listed for only a few months. She helped me every time I ran into a stumbling block, was quick to respond to my questions and provided me with everything I needed to make selling my home a painless experience. Next time I need a Real Estate Professional, I'll call Rowena.

Rowena was able to be that guiding light to help us finish the process.

Dear Readers: Rowena Lusby helped My Wife and I buy our first home at the age of 21 and 20. She went above and beyond to ensure that we were able to get our home (In Battle Ground) which was built by New Traditions from the ground up. She was very easy to work with and I was able to get ahold of her basically at any time when we had questions or concerns. She was extremely patient with my wife and I who really knew zero about the processes of buying a home. She was able to coach us through some issues that we had with New Traditions and through the Mortgage company. This was such a stressful time for my wife and I, but Rowena was able to be that guiding light to help us finish the process. I wouldn't have any hesitations reccomending her to any friends, family, or strangers on the street. This women will do everything in her power to ensure that you get your home and make it as easy as it can be. Thanks for reading "one very happy home owner"

She exceeded every expectation and offered outstanding solutions to each of our issues.

Rowena is highly professional, extremely knowledgeable, and very easy to work with. She exceeded every expectation and offered outstanding solutions to each of our issues. She helped us purchase the house of our dreams and managed every aspect of the purchase in spite of the fact that we were 1000 miles away. Phone, fax, text, email, and videos... she is connected, mobile, and responsive. In addition to her own expertise, Rowena has a network of professionals to resolve each and every aspect of a home purchase. We wouldn't work with any other realtor.

I would give Rowena 10 stars if I could.

I would give Rowena 10 stars if I could. We moved from California and unfamiliar with the areas in Washington we were interested in. She spent several days with us showing the local towns in the areas, good restaurants, shopping. She was upbeat every day which made househunting much more tolerable. We bought our house from her and due to our location, Rowena offered to be available and take care of all the necessary inspections, etc. She was our liaison. She responded to our numerous phone calls, set us up with everything from contractors to cleaning crews. We were amazed by the way we were treated by Rowena. We've bought and sold houses before but have never come across anyone as reliable, friendly, thoughful, knowledgeable, and a total workaholic as Rowena. We've been spoiled forever.

We are very grateful for her guidance during this important move.

For most us buying a house is our largest and most important investment and quality of life decision. For me, it is everything. Now that we are moving into our new home and getting to know our neighbors all we can say is Rowena Lusby is amazing. She found our perfect home in a wonderful neighborhood. This is her special gift. She’s an astute match-maker and she understands the market. She an artist at connecting people with their homes. In a short time she learned what we wanted, what we could afford, and found it for us. All the while, she stayed in touch, answering my questions by email and phone within minutes. She connected us with all the necessary people and made this important transition go smoothly and easily. We are very grateful for her guidance during this important move. Sincerely, Mary Bardmess

I will recommend her to anyone asking about SW Washington realtors.

Rowena helped me buy a home while my husband was out of the country. She was extremely knowledgeable and responsive. Often she replied late at night and on days when she had other activities. Her responses were usually within 5 minutes. She was fun to work with too. Everything was fantastic. In this market, there isn't much negotiating going on but what we did was handled very well. She also represented my daughter in a for sale by owner transaction. That was a more difficult sale and Rowena made it as easy and enjoyable as possible. I will recommend her to anyone asking about SW Washington realtors. If you need a realtor, call Rowena.

Rowena’s excellent knowledge of the market and the process were key..

I contacted Rowena in April. I had just retired and wanted to sell my home immediately. Having decided on a short sale, the whole process went faster than I expected. After the bank approved the short sale, the listing, the showings and the offers within two weeks. This is the first home that I had to sell where time was of the essence, and Rowena's excellent knowledge of the market and the process were key to making it happen.

She was spot on!

I was told I would not be able to refinance my home because i was so far under value. I contacted Rowena, we talked briefly about what i was trying to accomplish with the refi. Within seconds Rowena was online searching out homes in my area that were very similar, solds and pending sales, to get an idea of what mine would value for, within minutes she figured $220k-225k at the low end and noted values were also rising in my area. So i ordered the home appraisal that following day. She was spot on! The appraiser said 220k and rising. I am now the proud owner of a 3.5% fixed rate loan! Thanks to Rowena's knowledge and timely responses, I get to keep my home, and save my hard earned money! Couldn't of and wouldn't have done this with out yah lady!!! =) Thanks Row!

You won’t find an agent that is more devoted to her clients..

I would highly recommend Rowena. My husband is military and we needed help in purchasing a home before we arrived in the area. Rowena has bent over backwards to assist us in every way possible, from meeting us on off hours, on her days off, to working with us to figure out lending situations and answering phone calls and texts at odd hours. You won't find an agent that is more devoted to her clients and willing to do whatever it takes to find the perfect location and amenities.

Very professional and extremely knowledgeable!

It just doesn't get any better than Rowena! From start to finish it was like we were family! Very professional and extremely knowledgeable! She made the whole process so smooth! She was consistently going above and beyond to ensure we were happy & the deal was good!

I HIGHLY recommend her.

We live in Montana and owned a home in Vancouver. Before we listed our Vancouver home I read reviews and, based on those reviews, we decided to list with Rowena. It was the BEST DECISION we could have possible made. The home was older and there were some issues that we needed to deal with in order to satisfy home inspections and get the house sold.

Rowena Lusby has been the most professional, courteous and responsive realtor I have worked with to date.

I have sold and purchased a number of homes in Clark County over the last 20-years and by far, Rowena Lusby has been the most professional, courteous and responsive realtor I have worked with to date. She walks the walks and follows through on everything. I cannot say enough good things about Rowena and would highly recommend her to anybody selling or purchasing their home in Clark County! David Ripp

Ultimate integrity, listens to your needs and goes the extra mile.

I have known and worked with numerous real estate agents, none compare to Rowena. If you are looking for an agent who is committed to you, has ultimate integrity, listens to your needs and goes the extra mile you should contact Rowena. She is amazing and will be our realtor for all our real estate needs.

She was an incredible resource and awesome support.

Rowena helped us buy property and sell our home, and we were extremely impressed! She was friendly, very knowledgeable, easy to contact, and crazy fast with requests. When we were shopping for a home, she got us viewings and information, often within minutes. When there were complications with the sale of the house, she was willing to talk to the city permit office. Our home was one of those unique "needs the right buyer" kind of properties, and Rowena sold it in FOUR days (16 showings!) She does beautiful marketing on every property she lists, and she knows everyone. We met with her and decided to sell and she had the photographer at the house the very next day. She was an incredible resource and awesome support through a difficult process. We are so grateful we chose Rowena!

Highly recommend her to represent either buyers or sellers.

Providing superior customer service coupled with using new technology sets Rowena Lusby apart from other real estate agents in Clark County. Rowena is passionate about helping others and she has a customer support team that can effectively solve issues and work closely with clients. We were very pleased with services Rowena provided. She had our best interest in mind and worked together with us from start to finish. As a result, we had a successful closing. She was very responsive during the selling process and was very knowledgeable and resourceful. We would highly recommend her to represent either buyers or sellers.

Experienced Realtor Vancouver WA

When my husband and I decided to sell our home, we interviewed 6 different realtors before we hired Rowena. We have bought and sold 9 houses and we are both Type A personalities. I grew up outside of Washington DC, so to say it is a challenge to impress me is quite an understatement. We are experienced in real estate deals, we have extreme expectations and we are direct and unforgiving to professionals who fail to deliver. I would never give a positive review that wasn't warranted. Enough about me. Here's what we experienced when we hired Rowena--the woman is smart--she KNOWS her business, and she works tirelessly. She is kind--she will get a point across about something that needs to be corrected but it doesn't feel negative what-so-ever. She gets back to clients very quickly--she will not leave you hanging. Rowena is innovative--the drone pictures of our property were amazing and really generated interest in our property. She had some other suggestions that made a huge difference in our sale--none of the other relators we interviewed offered her suggestions--did I mention, Rowena KNOWS how to sell real estate? Rowena made us feel like we were her only clients. Not sure how she does that, but she does. She's a team player and absolutely included us in all decisions--she allowed us to select the pictures that were posted on the internet. I couldn't sleep one night--we were on the cusp of an offer, so I sent Rowena an email question I had--I was blown away to get an answer immediately. I think it was 4 a.m. She was thinking about the deal, too. Rowena is very internet-saavy. Today, that is imperative. We were impressed with her website, impressed that she uses her tablet and handles things in real time when she is with you--she simply does not waste time. Our house sold in 4 days after we listed it and opened it for viewing. 4 DAYS! Now most people would think we listed it too cheaply. We did not--we listed it fairly ($375K), and to our surprise, the house price was bid up $25K. Had we started at $400K, I doubt we would have even had anyone look at our home. Rowena offered wisdom on our acceptance offer regarding the closing date that I initially questioned. Since I trusted her completely, I agreed with her suggestion---turns out, she was right (again). I'm not sharing her secrets. If you want a top drawer realtor, contact this woman before she is too busy. You will not be sorry. Rowena is professional, experienced, wise and has great timing. She gets it. Wish we had known her 8 houses ago! We moved to another state. I promised to write a review when I had time. I owe Rowena nothing--this one's for you--a pay it forward! Best of luck during your stressful time.

She was patient and positive throughout.

I cannot say enough about how wonderful Rowena is to work with. Our family was relocating from Oregon and were not very familiar with the area. She really knows the area well and took the time to familiarize us with the city. She listened to us and understood exactly what we were looking for. She didn't try to fit us into a home, she found a home that fit us perfectly. When there were hurdles in the lending process she was right there to help us navigate them. She was an excellent advocate every step of the way and always very responsive to questions. This was our first time buying a home so we had A LOT of questions!!! We also needed a lot of guidance and hand holding and she was patient and positive throughout. She treated us like we were her only clients although I know that is not the case. Rowena is an asset and I feel so fortunate to have had her expertise, kindness and professionalism to walk us through this process. I would very highly recommend Rowena not only to first time home buyers but to anyone buying or selling a home.

New Home Owner Vancouver WA

When my family was first moving to the Vancouver area last spring, a future office partner of my husband's recommended that we get into contact with Rowena. At the time, we were looking for a rental. Although she explained to me that she does not work with any rental companies, she took the time to talk to me, recommending schools and neighborhoods based on what we were looking for. After moving into our rental, we were very dissatisfied with the condition of the home and were unable to remedy the problems with the rental company. After almost two frustrating months of trying to get the problems fixed, we contacted Rowena and told her that we were interested in looking at homes to purchase. We gave her our budget and she began sending us MLS listings of all the homes available within our budget and requirements. When we viewed homes with Rowena, she was friendly and honest- she was also very patient, as we looked at many different homes that we had selected from the MLS listings. While my husband was out of town on business, I saw a short sale that I thought might be perfect for us. Rowena and I went to look at it, and although it was small and basic, I thought that we could make it work, especially considering that the price was well below our top price point. Rowena went ahead and began writing up an offer for us, and we planned to take my husband to check the place out that weekend before we put in the offer. We also decided to peek at another home that was slightly above our price point but in the same neighborhood. To make a long story short, after she put in all of that effort on the short sale, we fell in love with the bigger home. We did the math, and with a great rate, we could definitely make the larger home work for our budget. Not to mention that the bigger home had pretty much everything that we would want in a dream home. Rowena helped us navigate the stresses of home-buying and took our change of heart into stride, never complaining about the additional work- or the fact that, due to a smaller BAC, she would end up making considerably less by helping us buy the bigger, more expensive home. We expressed our concerns about this, and her response was "All that matters is that you are getting the home that is right for you". That blew me out of the water. In addition to her sharing her extensive real estate knowledge, she helped us change to a local bank for our mortgage when our original funder was not working with us. She has also helped us find a great deal on flooring installation through her many community connections. Talk about local knowledge. Our family fell in love with Rowena while buying our house- she actually made it so that my eight-year-old son was looking forward to viewing houses- "Do we get to see Rowena?" She has gone above and beyond for our family, and I cannot say enough good things about her and her work.

Home Sold Vancouver WA

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $400K in Vancouver, WA.

When my husband and I decided to sell our home, we interviewed 6 different realtors before we hired Rowena. We have bought and sold 9 houses and we are both Type A personalities. I grew up outside of Washington DC, so to say it is a challenge to impress me is quite an understatement. We are  experienced in real estate deals, we have extreme expectations and we are direct and unforgiving to professionals who fail to deliver. I would never give a positive review that wasn't warranted. Enough about me. Here's what we experienced when we hired Rowena--the woman is smart--she KNOWS her business, and she works tirelessly. She is kind--she will get a point across about something that needs to be corrected but it doesn't feel negative what-so-ever. She gets back to clients very quickly--she will not leave you hanging. Rowena is innovative--the drone pictures of our property were amazing and really generated interest in our property. She had some other suggestions that made a huge difference in our sale--none of the other relators we interviewed offered her suggestions--did I mention, Rowena KNOWS how to sell real estate? Rowena made us feel like we were her only clients. Not sure how she does that, but she does. She's a team player and absolutely included us in all decisions--she allowed us to select the pictures that were posted on the internet. I couldn't sleep one night--we were on the cusp of an offer, so I sent Rowena an email question I had--I was blown away to get an answer immediately. I think it was 4 a.m. She was thinking about the deal, too.  Rowena is very internet-saavy. Today, that is imperative. We were impressed with her website, impressed that she uses her tablet and handles things in real time when she is with you--she simply does not waste time. Our house sold in 4 days after we listed it and opened it for viewing. 4 DAYS!  Now most people would think we listed it too cheaply. We did not--we listed it fairly ($375K), and to our surprise, the house price was bid up $25K. Had we started at $400K, I doubt we would have even had anyone look at our home. Rowena offered wisdom on our acceptance offer regarding the closing date that I initially questioned. Since I trusted her completely, I agreed with her suggestion---turns out, she was right (again). I'm not sharing her secrets. If you want a top drawer realtor, contact this woman before she is too busy. You will not be sorry. Rowena is professional, experienced, wise and has great timing.

Best of luck during your stressful time.

Friendly and Knowledgeable

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $325K in Vancouver, WA.

Rowena helped us buy property and sell our home, and we were extremely impressed! She was friendly, very knowledgeable, easy to contact, and crazy fast with requests.  When we were shopping for a home, she got us viewings and information, often within minutes. When there were complications with the  sale of the house, she was willing to talk to the city permit office. Our home was one of those unique "needs the right buyer" kind of properties, and Rowena sold it in FOUR days (16 showings!) She does beautiful marketing on every property she lists, and she knows everyone. We met with her and decided to sell and she had the photographer at the house the very next day. She was an incredible resource and awesome support through a difficult process. We are so grateful we chose Rowena!

I have sold and purchased a number of homes in Clark County over the last 20-years and by far, Rowena Lusby has been the most professional, courteous and responsive realtor I have worked with to date.  She walks the walks and follows through on everything. 

I cannot say enough good things  about Rowena and would highly recommend her to anybody selling or purchasing their home in Clark County!

A Real Advocate and Partner

I am so grateful to Rowena for hand holding me through the process and being a real advocate and partner in buying my first home.  I can't recommend her highly enough.

Devoted to her clients

Bought a home in 2013 in Rose Village, Vancouver, WA 98663.

I would highly recommend Rowena.  My husband is military and we needed help in purchasing a home before we arrived in the area. Rowena has bent over backwards to assist us in every way possible, from meeting us on off hours, on her days off, to working with us to figure out lending situations and  answering phone calls and texts at odd hours.  You won't find an agent that is more devoted to her clients and willing to do whatever it takes to find the perfect location and amenities.

Rowena is spot on!

Property manage a home.

I was told I would not be able to refinance my home because i was so far under value.  I contacted Rowena, we talked briefly about what i was trying to accomplish with the refi.  Within seconds Rowena was online searching out homes in my area that were very similar, solds and pending sales, to get  an idea of what mine would value for, within minutes she  figured $220k-225k at the low end and noted values were also rising in my area.  So i ordered the home appraisal that following day.  She was spot on!  The appraiser said 220k and rising.  I am now the proud owner of a 3.5% fixed rate loan!  Thanks to Rowena's knowledge and timely responses, I get to keep my home, and save my hard earned money!  Couldn't of and wouldn't have done this with out yah lady!!! =) Thanks Row!

Process went faster than expected

Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $175K in Vancouver, WA.

I contacted Rowena in April.  I had just retired and wanted to sell my home immediately.  Having decided on a short sale,  the whole process went faster than I expected.  After the bank approved the short sale, the listing, the showings and the offers within two weeks.  This is the first home that  I had to sell where time was of the essence, and Rowena's excellent knowledge of the market and the process were key to making it happen.

Knowledgable and Responsive

Bought a Condo home in 2013 for approximately $250K in Ridgefield, WA.

Rowena helped me buy a home while my husband was out of the country.   She was extremely knowledgeable and responsive.   Often she replied late at night and on days when she had other activities.   Her responses were usually within 5 minutes.   She was fun to work with too.   Everything was  fantastic.    In this market, there isn't much negotiating going on but what we did was handled very well.   She also represented my daughter in a for sale by owner transaction.   That was a more difficult sale and Rowena made it as easy and enjoyable as possible.

I will recommend her to anyone asking about SW Washington realtors.   If you need a realtor, call Rowena.

Rowena is highly professional, extremely knowledgeable…

Rowena is highly professional, extremely knowledgeable, and very easy to work with. She exceeded every expectation and offered outstanding solutions to each of our issues. She helped us purchase the house of our dreams and managed every aspect of the purchase in spite of the fact that we were 1000 miles away. Phone, fax, text, email, and videos... she is connected, mobile, and responsive. In addition to her own expertise, Rowena has a network of professionals to resolve each and every aspect of a home purchase. We wouldn't work with any other realtor.
 

Found our Perfect Home

Bought a home in 2013 in Fishers Landing East, Camas, WA 98607.

For most us buying a house is our largest and most important investment and quality of life decision. For me, it is everything. Now that we are moving into our new home and getting to know our neighbors all we can say is Rowena Lusby is amazing. She found our perfect home in a wonderful  neighborhood. This is her special gift. She’s an astute match-maker and she understands the market.  She an artist at connecting people with their homes. In a short time she learned what we wanted, what we could afford, and found it for us. All the while, she stayed in touch, answering my questions by email and phone within minutes. She connected us with all the necessary people and made this important transition go smoothly and easily. We are very grateful for her guidance during this important move.

Sincerely,

Mary Bardmess

Made our house hunting more tolerable

Bought a home in 2013 in Prindle, Yacolt, WA 98671.

I would give Rowena 10 stars if I could. We moved from California and unfamiliar with the areas in Washington we were interested in. She spent several days with us showing the local towns in the areas, good restaurants, shopping. She was upbeat every day which made househunting much more tolerable.  We bought our house from her and due to our location, Rowena offered to be available and take care of all the necessary inspections, etc. She was our liaison. She responded to our numerous phone calls, set us up with everything from contractors to cleaning crews. We were amazed by the way we were treated by Rowena. We've bought and sold houses before but have never come across anyone as reliable, friendly, thoughful, knowledgeable, and a total workaholic as Rowena. We've been spoiled forever.

Our guiding light to help finish the process

Bought a home in 2012 in Venersborg, Battle Ground, WA 98604.

Dear Readers:

                    Rowena Lusby helped My Wife and I buy our first home at the age of 21 and 20. She went above and beyond to ensure that we were able to get our home (In Battle Ground) which was built by New Traditions from the ground up. She was very easy to work with and I was able to get  ahold of her basically at any time when we had questions or concerns. She was extremely patient with my wife and I who really knew zero about the processes of buying a home. She was able to coach us through some issues that we had with New Traditions and through the Mortgage company. This was such a stressful time for my wife and I, but Rowena was able to be be that guiding light to help us finish the process. I wouldn't have any hesitations reccomending her to any friends, family, or strangers on the street. This women will do everything in her power to ensure that you get your home and make it as easy as it can be.

            Thanks for reading

Incredibly knowledgable about the market

Sold a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $225K in Battle Ground, WA.

Rowena has proven to be incredibly knowledgeable about the market and, more importantly, hugely supportive and helpful in the process of listing my home and getting it sold. I was convinced that I going to have to list my home as a Short Sale and, when all was said and done, I came out with money  in my pocket after being listed for only a few months.

She helped me every time I ran into a stumbling block, was quick to respond to my questions and provided me with everything I needed to make selling my home a painless experience. Next time I need a Real Estate Professional, I'll call Rowena.

A pleasure to work with

Sold a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $400K in Washougal, WA.

Perfect example of professionalism

Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $175K in Camas, WA.

Rowena was the perfect example of professionalism.  She was kind, knowledgeable, and highly skilled in finding us our first home.  She kept in contact with us through the entire process- was our advocate when we needed it and a friend when the trials of buying our first home while pregnant with  twins became burdensome.  This experience was a great one because of her!

            I have already recommended Rowena to several friends and family and I will continue to do so...she's fantastic!

Camas WA Home Sold

Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $400K in Camas, WA.

Oh my goodness... talk about an individual who gives her heart and soul to her customers!  Rowena worked tireless with us to find the home of our dreams.  Not only did it have to be the right size, but it had to be the right neighborhood, and we wanted an excellent value.  She knows her short  sales!!!  She warned us honestly that the process could take time, but she worked with the selling agent in such a cooperative manner that the short sale was approved in less than 2 months.  Quite the record from what I've heard from other buyers of short sales.

Rowena is passionate and genuinely cares.  She won't sell you a bill of goods to get the sale and will question your decisions if she is afraid you may be making a mistake, yet allowing you to make your own choices. 

Row with be the ONLY realtor to whom I refer my friends and family.  I've known realtors who make you do all the foot work... she does it all and you'll have fun in the process.

Row's greatest asset, besides genuinely loving all her clients (even us demanding and difficult ones) and listening to their unique needs, is her diplomacy and professionalism.  Buying and selling a home requires establishing strong and trusting relationships with others in the industry.  From home inspectors to loan officers, handymen and painters, Rowena is connected with vendors who love her and bend over to service her clients. You know they will do an excellent job for you as if she hears otherwise, they would be afraid to lose her trust.

Meet with Rowena.  See if you love her.

Our property was promptly sold

Sold a Single Family home in 2011 in La Center, WA.

We contracted with Rowena to sell our house. We've had some prior bad experiences with people who told us what we wanted to hear, were less than knowledgeable and didn't follow through on anything. Rowena was exactly he opposite. She prevented us from spending thousands of dollars on the house to  get it 'ready to sell', told us what the price needed to be to sell it, and then promptly sold it. There was fuss, no bluster, no fanfare. She just did what she said she would do and we are eternally grateful for that. I recommend Rowena with absolutely no hesitation at all. Thank you.

Rowena met the challenge

Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $125K in Parkside, Vancouver, WA.

My husband and I couldn't be happier with the job Rowena did in helping us purchase an investment property. Most of the properties we were looking at were short sales which require much more effort and skill on the part of the realtor, and Rowena met the challenge.  She located properties that met  our criteria and helped us write offers quickly...a must in this competitive investor market.  She was an amazing negotiator and was with us every step of the way to answer questions and and smooth any rough patches along the way. Thank you Rowena for your professionalism, honesty, and sense of humor!

Great to work with!

Rowena was great to work with. It was a tough process, but she really made it easy and as painless as possible. We felt like she was on our team 100% which allowed us to focus on settling into our new home state much more smoothly. I'd recommend her assistance to anyone.

Battle Ground WA Home Sold

Bought a Single Family home in 2010 for approximately $375K in Battle Ground, WA.

We are writing this review, as promised, to thank you for the great job that you did as our buyer’s agent when purchasing our new home and to give you permission to use us as a reference with anyone who may be considering you as their realtor. 

Here is our story...

            Three years ago we  moved from Pennsylvania to Vancouver, WA for a job opportunity.  We rented for three years to make sure the new job would make us happy and that we wanted to stay in Washington.  We love it here!

We watched the economy and decided that now would be the time to buy.  Eight years ago I had obtained a realtor’s license in Pennsylvania so I’m not completely ignorant regarding the process of purchasing or selling a home. I also understand and cannot stress enough the importance of having a GOOD realtor when you buy or sell any property.  However, a good realtor is hard to find. We sold our home in Pennsylvania with a realtor who was our “best friend” and was always communicating until he had our listing.  After that the communication was limited to us calling him and we handled much of the transaction on our own.  It was very frustrating. Another big concern when using a realtor as a buyer’s agent is the fact that there is really no incentive for the realtor to try to get the best deal for their client as the commission for the buyer’s agent is greater if the selling price is greater.  We had one local Vancouver realtor tell us that the full listing price on a home seemed fair (in this market no less) and that we should just offer the listed price. He also mentioned the listing agent was his friend.  We decided against making an offer.  The listing price for that property was at $385k and less than a month later we saw that property drop to $315k and it may have sold for less. This was going to be one of the largest financial transactions that we were going to experience, so we were again looking for a realtor who we felt would work for us to get a fair price, communicate throughout the process, and truly be on our side.  We were fortunate to have found one....you! 

            You came highly recommended from a friend of ours who had used you to sell their home so we decided we would meet you.  We had a beautiful property that we were interested in and you immediately met us to walk through the home.  We suggested an offer and you suggested that we offer even lower.  Wow...! You were trying to help us!  We made the offer, you guided us through the process, you communicated immediately with us all the time...even on weekends and late nights, paperwork was always sent to us with explanations and guidance.  We felt as if we were your only client. We had many complications with this property but you were always right on it and you were always prodding the listing realtor to get things done.  You also discussed potential problems and scenarios to help us think through our decisions and counteroffers.  You truly helped us make an informed purchase.

            Another praise....then I’ll stop writing....I promise.  There was another complication that we never realized that we would need your advice in overcoming. We really don’t know anyone here because we just moved from the east coast so we needed recommendations for everyone in this process.  I have to say that every person you recommended to help us from the mortgage broker, the carpet installers, movers, etc., were always ethical, quality, people.  That says a lot about you as well.  You always knew someone to help us. 

            In closing ...THANK YOU! You have played a big role in helping us achieve one of our dreams, owning a twenty acre property, with a pond, a barn, a house with potential (grin), beautiful views, and a peaceful, safe place for us to live as a family and be happy. 

            Thank you again for everything you did...we now consider you a friend and would highly recommend you to anyone who is wanting to buy or sell a home.  We truly feel that the commission never played a role in the process, we know that you were more concerned with making us happy, helping us find a place of our dreams, and doing it with our best intentions in mind.  Please feel free to have anyone call us to discuss our experience.

A phenomenal agent!

Sold a Single Family home in 2011 for approximately $225K in Fishers Creek, Vancouver, WA.

Rowena is a phenomenal agent…the 5-star rating doesn’t begin to describe how amazing she is to work with!   She provided an elite level of service that exceeded my expectations and I highly recommend her to all.   Rowena went above and beyond to sell my home through the complicated short-sale  program with BofA and their 3rd party short-sale department REDC.    Her extensive knowledge of the short-sale process, effective communication, and her passion to succeed is what sets her apart from other agents. Even when faced with potentially deal ending roadblocks; Rowena continued to negotiate and fight on my behalf and was successful in selling my home.  Rowena is the reason I was able to avoid foreclosure and I’m so grateful for all she has done for me!  If you’re looking for an agent that is client focused, driven, and a pleasure to work with… “Go with Ro”, it will be one of the best decisions you ever made!

Everything went smoothly

I HAD A AGENT TRYING TO SELL MY HOUSE FOR OVER A YEAR WITH NO RESUTS AT ALL. THEN MY DAUGHTER KORI TOLD ME ABOUT ROWENA. WHAT A BLESSING  ROWENA HAS BEEN TO MY LIFE. SHE GOT RESULTS  RIGHT AWAY FOR ME. SHE ALWAYS CALLED ME AND KEPT ME UP TO DATE. IN A COUPLE OF MONTHS EVEN WITH THE BAD ECONOMY SHE  FOUND A BUYER FOR MY HOUSE. IM SO THANKFUL. THIS WAS A SHORT SALE TOO. EVERYTHING WENT SMOOTHLY. I WOULD RECOMMEND HER TO ANYONE LOOKING TO BUY OR SELL. IF YOU NEED SOMETHING DONE SHE WILL DO IT FOR YOU. THANK YOU ROWENA AND MANY BLESSINGS WILL COME YOUR WAY. DAN AND MARYJANE

Thoughtful and Smart

Sold a Single Family home in 2011 for approximately $125K in Battle Ground, WA.

We called Rowena up after I looked up real estate agents dealing with short sales in our area.  She got back to me right away, and took charge of everything we were dealing with.  It was such a relief to have her expertise throughout the thorny issues of short selling a home. 

            Rowena is energetic,  thoughtful, and smart, she kept us up to date on every proceeding, and she got to know us on a personal level.   I would definitely recommend her for anyone looking to sell a home (regular or short-sale), or buy in the area.  Thanks again Ro!

We highly recommend Rowena

Sold a home in 2011.

This was our first selling experience, and it could not have gone better.  Rowena came in and gave us an honest appraisal of our property, and then a list of the few things that would increase the appeal to a buyer.  After we completed our list, Rowena came up with a price that she felt would be  competitive, and put us on the market.  She totally nailed it.  After the first day of showings, we had two competing bids, which is exactly where you want to be, especially in the current market.  We accepted the best offer, and closing went without a hitch.  We highly recommend Rowena.  If you take advantage of her expertise in staging and pricing, you will definitely sell your house quickly and profitably.

Going above and beyond

Bought a Single Family home in 2009 for approximately $625K in Vancouver, WA.

Given the review criteria, I could not rate Rowena less than the highest in all categories. I'll just be straightforward: you want this woman on your side in a negotiation. She is amazing and goes above-and-beyond to get the deal done, and to make sure it's in your best interests. Our situation was  particularly difficult, having to deal with a for-sale-by-owner. She also helped my in-laws close an unbelievable purchase - Thanks again Rowena for sticking it out with us.

A Consummate Professional

Bought a home in 2011 in North Image, Vancouver, WA 98682.

Rowena is an extremely professional, passionate, dedicated Agent.  She responds quickly to questions and situations and she thinks outside the box.  She is tough when she needs to be (she had to convince an appraiser that there were appropriate comps- and within minutes she had all the ammo she  needed to do so) and she is a consummate professional. She knows her stuff and I can't recommend her highly enough.

Extensive Local Knowledge

Sold a home in 2011 in Hamey Heights, Vancouver, WA 98661.

Rowena was a gift while searching for a house. Brutally honest about the condition of properties, extensive local knowledge, and a winning smile to boot. She was incredibly aggressive with negotiations, but didn't push me to buy. She truly tried to understand what I needed and helped me make it  happen. I travel extensively and she worked extremely well with my long absences even down to helping me with contractors to fix minor cosmetic issues with the property. I couldn't have asked for more in a realtor or a person.

Go With Ro.

A Real Estate All Star!

Sold a Single Family home in 2008 for approximately $375K in Vancouver, WA.

Rowena is a real estate all-star!  She listens carefully, asks thoughtful questions, and makes strategic suggestions.  She helped our family with two home sales, for our personal residence and after the death of a family member.  She was able to help us market these homes for swift sales while  commanding strong selling prices.  Later, she helped negotiate a fantastic deal on our new home.  We consider Rowena to be a trusted professional and are proud to have her as our friend.

Wonderful to work with

Sold a Single Family home in 2010 for approximately $350K in Vancouver, WA.

We really appreciated the extra mile that Rowena went to help get our house sold and closed. She took the time to assist us every step of the way and was always available to answer our questions.

Trustworthy and wonderful to work with

Bought a Single Family home in 2010 for approximately $325K in Woodland, WA.

Rowena is wonderful to work with, trustworthy and very knowledgeable about the market.  She assisted us in a home purchase from across the country - we had two short visits here to visit potential listings and were able to find the best house here to fit our needs so we were able to move from house  to house.  Rowena also has many contacts to assist you with remodeling or simply purchasing new appliances for your new home.  She is on top of things and always willing to offer assistance!  She has an excellence rapport with clients and I would highly recommend Rowena to you without reservation.

A smooth and easy purchase

Bought a home in 2010 in Saint John, Salmon Creek, WA 98686.

What can i say about Rowena other than she is just as good a person as she is a Realtor.  I wasted a lot of Rowena's time looking and offering on multiple houses and she just took it in stride and kept plugin along, which I very much appreciated!!  She is extremely knowledgeable about the areas  that we were interested in and "told us how it was," which in my opinion, was very helpful!  I really can't say enough on her professionalism and courtesy when dealing with her clients.  She was always available, even on the weekends at 7pm on a Sunday for example, and always seemed eager to find out any information about houses that my fiancé' and I were curious about!!  I would totally recommend Rowena if you want a smooth, easy purchase or sale!!  Good Luck!

Rowena is the best realtor

Sold a Single Family home in 2008 in Brush Prairie, WA.

Rowena was the best realtor that we have ever worked with. We have shared our experience that we had with her, with anyone that we here is needing a realtor. She goes way beyond what is asked from a realtor. She has become family to us. We love her and will use her again in the future. That is a  promise we made with her years ago. I would have given more stars if that option was available. She is an amazing and caring realtor. She really listened us and showed us exactly what she knew we wanted. She is a honest and a hard working realtor.

Highly Recommend Rowena

Listed, but didn't sell my Single Family home in 2011 in Lincoln, Vancouver, WA.

Rowena will light up your day, jump through a ring of fire to do WHATEVER needs to be done in the most professional, thoughtful manner. I would HIGHLY recomend this agent  She knows all aspects of the complete buying and selling process.  "Go with Ro" You will not be disappointed with the level of  commitment and service she brings to the sale!

Negotiated a great deal

In researching the market in our area, we looked into a foreclosure listed by Rowena Lusby. Within the first five minutes of meeting her, I knew we'd found a gem! She was an aggressive bargainer and managed to negotiate a great deal on a custom built home. Her network of builders, contractors, landscapers, etc. put us in our dream home for far less than what we expected to pay. I whole-heartedly recommend Rowena! She's the best!!!!
