Seller Testimonials


We were unhappy with our first agent and then listed with Jillian and she was so eager and willing to get our property sold – I think it’d still be for sale if it weren’t for Jillian. She was wonderful – I have recommended her to everyone I can!

— C.& M Treas

Michelle was incredible! She kept us very informed, was easy to reach at anytime, and always a pleasure to interact with. Above all, she really seemed to have a firm grasp on the real estate market and helped us get the most money for our house.

— Nevin & Katie Sassaman

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.

— Robert and Miranda Liebscher, Lewisburg

Matt Hoffman was very effective in ensuring that closing occurred on my Lewisburg, PA home when the buyer dragged her feet. I was extremely happy working with Matt and will recommend him to others (and already have!).

— Gary Steiner, Lewisburg PA

Matt Hoffman is a very smart, knowledgeable, organized young man.  He would get back to us almost immediately with any questions or concerns that we had.  The whole process of selling our home went well.

— Edwin and Linda Fisher, Lewisburg PA

I would like to thank Duska for the day we sat together and weighed out the two offers we had on our home and her honesty with helping us make a decision we’ve never regretted.

— Mervin & Joanna Hoover

We truly felt Duska took selling our house personal.  We were very happy with Duska and would easily use her again.

— Brian & Jennifer Shaffer

Duska was always giving us every update, every detail, and doing everything to stay in touch, email, etc.  Duska was a wonderful agent.  She went above and beyond to sell our home.

— William & Jessica Selg

Terry is an exceptional realtor; working hard for YOU.  He was always available to talk over any questions or concerns that we might have had.  We are very pleased at the short amount of time it took for him to sell our home.  Terry is not only our realtor of choice, but also our friend.

— Charity & Dennis H.

Larry was terrific… Larry was respectful, calm and always available… Buying our house was so stressful, but selling our house with Larry was Easy!

— Lee Mix

The level of communication with me was well beyond the norm…exceptional and greatly appreciated.

— Rebecca Davis

I was very satisfied with Jillian in the sale of my property and the service I received. I would recommend her to anyone.

— Renee Snyder

When my first buyer walked out on the deal two days before closing Duska was as disappointed as I was, but she immediately had a plan to remarket the house and I had a second buyer in less than 24 hours.

— Heidi Pertusio

Matt Hoffman is a very professional agent. I have recently used him to buy and then to sell a home in Shamokin Dam, PA. He handled the sale our home after we had already relocated which took a lot of pressure off from us, and he was good at weekly updates. He is knowledgeable, but not pushy. Now that I have become a real estate agent myself, I have seen just how well he did his job. I hope to take what I learned from watching him and use it in my own business. He is also ahead of most other agents and agencies with his internet marketing which is necessary in today’s market. I would highly recommend him.

— Denise Pudim

We highly recommend the Bowen Agency. Matt Hoffman was amazing throughout the entire sales process, from listing, to showings, to contract, to closing. Honest, hard-working, knowledgeable, and attentive. What more could you want from a person (and agency) helping you to sell your most valuable asset?

— Alan Adler

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.

— Dianne Potter for Mildred (Betty) Bogar

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.

— Mary Kate & Matt Marshall

I have purchased and sold numerous homes during my 25 Years of Naval Service. Moving wasn’t an option when duty called. Out of all the Realtors, Melissa was by far the Best and most pleasant Realtor I had the pleasure of working with. She worked non-stop until our home was sold. Melissa is the Realtor you want if you need to purchase or sell your home.

— Chuck Hulsizer

Duska was excellent in helping us sell our property.  In every way professional, caring, honest and worked hard.  She is an asset to your business.

— James and Desiree Smith

I was very pleased with the service provided by Matt. He went above and beyond when helping me with minor adjustments after the inspections and helping to get the heater fixed. Once the house was under contract it was smooth sailing. Thanks for everything Matt!

— Bridget Cohen

I can’t thank you enough for everything you have done for me!! Your knowledge, patience & support made selling my home soooo much easier! Thanks for always being there, answering my endless questions & knowing the right thing to say! I will NEVER sell or buy without a Realtor! If anyone out there is considering selling their home – contact Melissa Laniewski!!! You are AWESOME at what you do!!!

— Peggy D, Selinsgrove

I could not have had a better experience selling my house. Melissa (Laniewski) is not just a salesperson: she truly cares about her clients.  She facilitated the hiring of mowers and electricians. She negotiated fairly with both sides.  She was always honest with me about our options—both positive and when I may have been unrealistic about expectations.  Melissa and Bowen were the right choice for me!

— Robin Musto

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.

— Danette

Melissa Laniewski was always available to answer questions and provide info throughout the process. She was great. Melissa Laniewski is the best!

— Carrie Gilbert

…I’d like to thank Bowen Agency for their excellent service to the Susquehanna Valley.  Specifically like to express my appreciation and give recommendation to my selling agent, Aimee Buehner.  As a sales professional myself, I felt confident selling my home privately. Unable to find success doing so, I decided to contract with Bowen, using Aimee as my listing agent. I could not have made a better decision. Not only did the property sell, I had multiple offers, and above list price.  Again, I truly appreciate the service of Bowen Agency and Aimee.

— Jeremy Zellers

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.

— Jeff Jones

There were many times when Duska did more than she had to.  

— Barbara Metzger

Melissa (Laniewski) helped me through each step of buying my townhouse and selling my home. At times it was emotional for me but she kept me calm and explained anything I did not understand.  She kept me informed and offered advice when I asked for it.  I felt very comfortable dealing with her and appreciated her expertise and help.

— L. Wittes, Selinsgrove

I had a great experience with Duska.  She kept me informed of everything as it was happening.  The process for me was easy and almost stress free! Duska also worked around my work schedule.  Thank you so much.

— Julie Powell

Matt Helped me almost to the point of exhaustion with my mortgage company. No matter what time of day or night he was there to help with all my ups and downs. I can’t thank Matt enough for getting me through the sale of my home and purchase of my new house. He never gave up even with all the obstacles my mortgage company threw at us.

— Justine Sellers

You have been super awesome in everything related to the selling of my rental in PA.
I live in Washington State so it’s been a stress to try to figure out how to fly over, rehab, and put on the market a house. I don’t know that much about selling and all the ins and outs of it, so when you stepped on the scene with all your knowledge and answered all my questions I had no doubt you were the right person for the job.
The house sold in record time for more than asking price and the transactions went smoothly.
Thank you so much!

— Geoff

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.

— Ben, PNL Penn Properties, LP

Art is a trusted friend.

— M A Samad, MD

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

— “Dee” Jones

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!

— Marie & Floyd

Melissa Laniewski is of the highest caliber—she kept in very close contact regarding the sale of our home, and always promptly returned our calls/emails within a few hours—sometimes minutes! …and worked tirelessly in the sale of the property.  We cannot speak higher of Melissa—we have and will continue to recommend her to any and all seeking or selling a home.  Her grace, professionalism, kindness, (and) humor make her a full asset to Bowen Agency and the Susquehanna Valley community.

— Pete S. & Jessica S.

Melissa (Laniewski), I never had much occasion with selling or buying, but I must say you have made an otherwise stressed occasion, into one I will always look back to with pleasure. Sure there were moments, but none of them did not end without your encouragement and patience. That I am most thankful for. I hope the agency values your service as we did.
Thank you again, it was our pleasure to know you and do business with you. I have come to look at you as my friend.

— Maria B., Selinsgrove

Melissa’s continual contact, status updates and moral support made this a pleasant transaction for all parties concerned. Melissa made us feel as if we were dealing with a friend, not just a broker. We have already told friends that she is who you want if buying or selling in this area.

— Jill and Bill H. in Selinsgrove, PA

Aimee was so good with us, since we had no idea what we were looking for, and really helped us find the perfect fit for us. We are so grateful–she is the best and we will recommend her to everyone!

— Jason and Jodie

Melissa (Laniewski) was very courteous and kept me informed with every step that was occurring. She went out of her way to relieve any stress that I was having throughout the entire process.

— Deanna K, Selinsgrove

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.

— Dan Periat, Pescadero, CA

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!

— Bruce and Flo H.

Jillian did a great job in selling my home. She was prompt and exceeded my expectations.

— Adam Neitz

Melissa was absolutely fantastic dealing with the sale of my house. She had a friendly, outgoing personality. She provided answers to any question I had, and provided suggestions for the salability of my residence. I was updated on all the showings of the house with comments made by the prospective buyers. Melissa took care of everything that needed to be done locally while I was living in Arizona.

— Margaret U

Matt was great to work with. He made the process fun and would call all the
time to keep me posted. He always answered my questions promptly no matter
how trivial they were. When my wife and I are ready to sell our current
house and relocate we will be coming to Bowen Agency! Matt has been a
pleasure to work with. Top notch!

— Mike H.

Bowen Agency was the first real estate firm that “got it” from a marketing perspective. And was smart, realistic, & honest. We were out of town for most of the transaction but Matt continued to move negotiations and the process forward. He wanted to sell our home as opposed to just listing and sitting back and waiting. Matt was outstanding!

— Kenneth J. & Amy K., Harrisburg PA

Cory would be my outstanding pick for any Real Estate transaction. Honest, informative, best agent available I have used in my life bar none.

— Jim B.

Returning clients… our 2nd experience with Cory was just as exceptional as the first. Cory has a beautiful charm that calms any concerns and assures you “she’s got it covered”. She went the extra mile to make sure our property had the best possible exposure. Cory’s attention to detail kept the sale moving forward when selling to an out of state buyer. Honest, professional and knowledgeable. She was prompt and exceeded our expectations.

— Brad & Angie W.

Melissa L. was professional, personable and driven during our sales process. She was always a step ahead, answering any questions or concerns that came up. She was available at all times and her expertise helped throughout. I would strongly recommend her to anyone who is buying or selling a home in our area.

— Carol and Bob Drumheiser

Aimee was always available via phone, email, or text at any point–including nights weekends and holidays. Aimee made 2 potentially “painful” transactions into a breeze. She was both a helpful shoulder to lean on as well as a shrewd negotiator, and everything in between. I have heard horror stories (about other agents), we had nothing close to that with Aimee.

— Don and Tiara

We LOVE Aimee, we will be using her to sell our home and will recommend to all our friends. Great in every way–appreciate her check ins, updates and texts. And what she did not know she researched.

— Lisa and George

Melissa (Laniewski) personally did a follow up on a problem with a dumpster removal after I moved from the property and wasn’t available. Melissa was a joy to work with. I’d recommend her anytime!

— Nancy B, formerly of Sunbury
