Deeana Owens is a Natural Born Leader. Born and raised in Oakland, California, Deeana has demonstrated a lifetime commitment to service and professionalism. She attended Clark Atlanta University, a Historically Black College, where she acquired her Bachelors of Arts Degree with a Major in Business and Minor in Marketing & Management. Deeana’s Real Estate career began when she was still a college senior. She met a Keller Williams agent at a local Art Walk near campus, in a neighborhood called Castleberry Hill. This agent later became Deeana’s mentor. Deeana was convinced to use her remaining available college classes to study Real Estate. Shortly thereafter, Deeana acquired her first Real Estate License in Georgia in 2006.

Senior year in college was a great year for Deeana, not for academics, but for Real Estate. She was recognized as Rookie of the Year with the Keller Williams Realty: The Atlanta Classic branch. Deeana sold a $2M home in the prestigious Buckhead Atlanta neighborhood during her first year in sales; all while a student in college.

Although Deeana was a rising star in her early Real Estate career, she noticed some changes in the market, prior to the 2008 crash. She predicted that the market shift would be difficult to sustain. Deeana transitioned her career to corporate sales and became an Account Executive in the Fortune 50 Corporate environment. Her work ethic and aptitude propelled her up the corporate ladder quickly. Deeana was relocated twice and promoted 3 times in 8 years. She has lived in Denver, Colorado and most recently New York City, where she also acquired a Real Estate License.

Deeana developed invaluable sales, marketing, and negotiation skills while performing as an Account Executive for UPS and later FedEx.

I had the pleasure of attending Buy Back the Block session two with the beautiful, ambitious and talented Miss Deanna Owens. I've been seeing her postings on Facebook and I've been very impressed with her mission to serve and educate our community. My expectations were exceeded as I listened to the program and speakers she lined up. Valuable, significant content that was truly helpful to the audience. No fluff. I loved the way she just jumped in, in the middle of the presentation if she caught the speaker slipping. Not rude. Professional (and LOUD LOL), posed as a question that an audience member would have or was most likely thinking. Not only was the information useful, there were also multiple streams of people and contact information to follow up with in order to put into action what you learned. I am so impressed, and I look forward to following Miss Deanna Owens as she thrives.

Deeana is a patient, professional, problem solver who is devoted to exceeding the expectations of her clients. She worked with me for over a year while I prepared for the sale of my home. I consider her my Realtor for life. She helped me decide where I wanted to retire, she drove me around areas in the Bay and hooked me up with a Realtor in Atlanta when I finally decided that's where I wanted to retire.

Deeana recommended reputable and professional inspectors and contractors who helped prepare my home for market. We got $50K over asking price and I walked away with a sweet retirement nest egg. I strongly recommend hiring Deeana Owens as your Realtor.

This is a very great service to use. The Owen's group offered me great advice on making the best real estate decisions i would ever need to make.

I really enjoyed working with Deanna! She has a calming way about her and was there for me during my transition into retirement and the sale of my home. Her enthusiasm is hard to beat and infectious!

Some markets are very nuanced. East Oakland happens to be one of them. There are tenant's rights issues that are specific to Oakland; there are cultural and socio-economic considerations in dealing with owners, buyers, and tenants; and there are specific challenges to listing a property in East Oakland.

Fortunately, Deeana Owens has seen it all. This is a market that is typically a home buyer's first foray into real estate. They are not savvy when it comes to their expectations or demands. They require extra guidance as it relates to home financing and how to successfully close on a property.

Deeana was my listing agent and worked closely with the buyers' agent to reach a successful close. I like that she is hungry for results and works hard to reach the finish line. She does not take kindly to nonsense and I am very much the same way. When the buyers would not release their scheduled contingencies, we immediately served them with a notice to perform. The buyers' agent was playing games. We don't know if it was an effort to renegotiate or if they weren't sure the loan would be approved. Either way, we were not having it. Ultimately, the deal closed as it was negotiated.

With interest rates at a 12-month low, it is again a seller's market. If you are thinking about selling a property in East Oakland, I would not hesitate to refer you to Deeana Owens.
Helped me rent a Multi Family home in Oakland, CA.
As a tenant of one of the homes that Team Owens sold, my family and I found it very difficult and stressful to move out. As soon as we meet Team Owens, we felt like we were no longer alone. They gave us resources and help. They helped us find a new home and they made sure ALL tenants were happy as well as the buyers and the sellers!

Deeana is an experienced professional! She used her Fortune 500 problem solving & negotiation skills to help my wife and I sell our Oakland Investment Property. Deeana represented us, as well as the buyers in the transaction. For many, this would have been a challenge, but Deeana was able to find a win/win situation, just in time for me to do a 1031 Exchange. I am very happy with the level of service she provided and I would hire her again in a heartbeat. Deeana is a trusted advisor.

I was highly impressed with Deeanas professionalism and superior level of service. I met Deeana as a family friend, but when I hired her as my Realtor, she exceeded my expectations. She sold my home in 12 days and we got more than I anticipated for the sale. She had a network of resources who helped move the transaction along seamlessly. I know a lot of Rea Estate Agents, but I am grateful to have worked with Dee. She gets results.

Deeana is a savvy little firecracker. She sold 3 seperate homes for me and got me more than 20% above asking price for each. She was patient with my needs, she helped manage construction, staging and even relocation. I would hire Deeana again in a heartbeat. Working with her was a pleasure.
Bought a Single Family home in 2018 in Oakland, CA.
We had the most wonderful experience working with Deeana. She stayed in close communication with us every step of the way. There were 8 bidders on the house and Deeana managed to help us be the successful bidder without us getting pushed beyond our comfort zone. Deeana is very knowledgeable and also a lot of fun to work with. Buying a house, particularly in the Bay Area, can be very stressful and it is great to have someone like Deeana helping you through the process.
Ms Owens is very customer focused, extremely knowledge on housing throughout the Bay area. She is always willing to answer questions and research if required in order to provide you with the needed information. She is confident and exhibits that during the entire process whether you are buying or selling. I would recommend her 100% to handle any Real Estate issue
First of all I will like to thank Team Owens for selling our property at Oakland. Miss Varnell Owens was recommended to us by a friend and I do have to say was one of the better decision we made in the house selling process. Our situation was a bit unique in the sense that we were relocating to a new country. Miss Owen Team was very professional, answer all questions, and even when our first buyer fell through she was on the ball finding us a new buyer. One of the things that I liked about Miss Owens is that she was only a phone call away to answer all our questions. I can go on and on about Miss Owen's services, so I will stop here and I will say please choose Team Owens for selling/ buying your property. By the way she got us into our new home in a different country within a month. Thank you for all your hard work.

My wife and I are extremely happy that we found Deeana and started working with her. From day one Deeana was professional, knowledgeable and accessible. Most importantly we felt like she always had our back and interests at heart. We believe she worked a very difficult situation into a positive outcome resulting in a very fast transition for us into our new property in Oakland.
