Mostly I appreciate how gracefully you worked with my ex-husband and I.
Fine Line Homes has enjoyed a long standing relationship with the Bowen Agency, listing our move-in ready homes for sale and building homes for customers that were referred. Art always keeps the clients interest first and conducts business in an ethical and professional manner. Without hesitation we highly recommend Art and the services of the Bowen Agency for your real estate needs.
Had a great experience using Bowen!
And we would also like to thank you Art for the professionalism and courtesy you extended to us during the sale of our home! We do not hesitate to refer you to our friends and acquaintances who are looking for a realtor!
Art went to bat for us when we were told that our septic system on our Lewisburg, PA home was not up to par; subsequently we did not have to make unnecessary repairs.
I never got to thank you in the end….THANK YOU SO VERY MUCH! You were beyond a professional in dealing with us…you were a friend. Thank you Art for all you have done! God Bless & hope to see you soon.
We definitely want to thank you all for the wonderful job you have done helping us sell our home. It has been a long time coming, but with all of us working together we finally got the result we’ve been praying for.
I wanted to express my gratitude for your help with the selling of our home. Things went well and we appreciated your help in our absence. I’m glad we were able to work with you on at least the sale of the home. I also appreciated your patience and professionalism.
In every possible way, Art Bowen went beyond the call of duty! Terrific service; one of the very best sales experiences ever! Thanks!
Thanks also for making this sale as “pain free” as possible…..if we know anyone else interested in selling their home we will send them your way!
Art was very attuned to our needs
Art was great! As first-time home buyers, we were apprehensive. He guided us through the process effortlessly answering emails, even in the evening, no matter how small or big the question. The only Real Estate agency we would ever deal with is Bowen. We bought a commercial property last year and a residential property this year. Both were a pleasant experience!
On behalf of my mother and her family, we would like to thank you so very much for allowing the necessity of the sale of her home to go so very efficiently. You found buyers interested, handled all the paperwork, calls, emails to us, making leaving her home in Selinsgrove, PA so very much easier and stress-free for her. Mother thinks the world of you and always knew when the time came, “Art” would sell her home. Fortunately she is now settled in a wonderful assisted living facility here in Florida and doing very well for age 97! Thank you to your courteous staff for everything they did to facilitate this easy transition for all of us.
Art has always been exceptionally professional and has great skill in assisting people through what can be a stressful time. I have had many contacts with Realtors-by far Art Bowen is the very best. He is professional, bright, comforting and has a great sense of humor. I would never hesitate to recommend him to others.
Hi Art, it was nice to meet some honest, good people at the end of this Unimart fiasco. It was a pleasure doing business; thanks to Ellen and yourself for the professionalism and great treatment I received.
Having dealt with many other Realtors before, we quickly came to appreciate the help we received from the Bowen Agency in purchasing a Lewisburg home. There are many words that immediately come to mind when we recall house hunting with Art Bowen: professional, ethical, patient, wise, practical, informative, thorough, punctual, courteous, and good-natured are but a few. We are entirely satisfied with the services we received and the home we ultimately purchased.
Your help, support, advice in selling Dad’s home was super! May God richly bless you in your work.
It has absolutely been a pleasure working with you and your team. We are very pleased with the results you produced. I wish you nothing but the best.
Art and his staff were very supportive of me going through a stressful time. They were very helpful to me and were there when I needed them. I was very pleased in how the sale and closing went without further stress to me. I thank and appreciate the Bowen Agency
Art is a trusted friend.
Art was always there for us, day or night. We really appreciate all he has done for us.
My wife and I are casually looking for a new home and will reach out to you if we find something of interest. I really appreciate the simplicity of your website…probably the best I’ve seen. Thanks!
