Print Agent Bio

Ever since I moved from Russia when I was 14, Oregon has been my home. For the past three years, I have been lucky enough to work with those who want to, or already do, share my love for this state. Before my start in Real Estate, I worked in a number of customer service related professions. For me, getting to meet a variety of people and guiding them through various experiences is what makes work enjoyable. Real estate gives me the opportunity to challenge myself. No two transactions are the same and I love seeing the excitement on my client’s faces after a successful close.

I was born in Khabarovsk, Russia (about 30 miles from the Chinese border) and began my time in the United States enrolled in Sandy High School. As you can imagine, it was quite the change, but I came to love growing up in a smaller town. Since then, I’ve moved all over the Portland Metro area - SE Portland, Aloha, Damascus, and Vancouver.

When not working I enjoy spending time with my Firefighter husband and two dogs; a 13 year old Siberian Husky and a two year old German Shepherd x Tasmanian devil mix. I am a huge supporter of Animal rescue organizations. In particular, Family Dogs New Life Shelter in Portland. I donate a portion of every commission to this great shelter. My friends know me as a Real Estate and Rescue dog matchmaker, especially since I’ve helped several of my friends find their dream pup (all through a rescue! #adoptdontshop).

Because I love Oregon, especially Portland and surrounding areas, I absolutely love selling Real Estate here. My goal is to always make my clients feel like there is zero stress involved with selling or buying and I can’t wait to help you out with your future endeavors.

We loved working with Irina. The most impressive attribute I found was her ability to negotiate and really devote herself to every one of her clients. She worked as hard as she could to accomplish all of our wishes and get us the best deal possible. When my partner and I needed a short break from viewings, she was more than happy to give us the space we needed. By the same token, she was also willing to show us as many homes as we were willing to see. We really enjoyed working with her and we are so glad to be on the other side and loving our new home!

Irina helped our daughter find her perfect home last summer. Watching Irina work with her, we knew immediately she was the person we wanted to work with. We chose her to find our forever home and she did that 2 days after meeting with her. Now we are putting our home on the market, with Irina, on Friday. Within 24hrs she assisted us with submitting an offer. Irina worked with the sellers agent to make the right offer for us and the sellers. Three days later our offer was accepted. WOW Thank You Irina! Now comes the paperwork process. We knew nothing about DocuSign. We were confused until discussing the process with Irina. She made everything simple and clear for us. Irina worked with us through the financial process as well. Then onto the signing at the Title company. She was right there with us. She was always available when we had questions or concerns, even when she was on vacation, out of the country. We have referred Irina to two of our neighbors. This girl knows what she is doing, she is amazing!

Irina gave us all her time we needed to explain what we were looking for. She had many good ideas and options to help us find the right house in the right location. When she saw the right house (only on the market for 3hrs) she set up a tour of the house for 3hrs later the same day. We loved the house and Irina walked us through submitting a offer with a letter stating how much we like the house. She tweaked the letter to make it sound twice as good as we wrote. She was a great help getting us through all the DocuSign paperwork and was with us at the title company signing all the papers. When we were stressed she helped us understand the process and gave us a warm comfortable feeling everything will be ok. We would not have survived the process if not for Irina. We are so looking forward to working with her to sell our house. We know she will do a great job in representing us and our house.

— Bob J

From beginning to end Irina kept on top of things and kept us informed. The photos that Irina had taken of our home showcased it very well.

Irina is extremely professional and knowledgeable in all areas real estate. She is always available, answers all texts, emails, and phone calls within minutes. Her negotiating skills go above and beyond all my expectations. I would highly recommended her to anyone looking to buy or sell a home and will definitely use her again!

— Elizabeth S.

Irina is a skillful and passionate realtor. Because of her, we looked at lovely homes, made an offer, and got our offer accepted all in the same day! She in incredible at immediately establishing solid and positive relationships with the lenders, inspectors, sellers, etc. and she will end up being one of your dearest friends! We even closed early because of her. If every realtor was as talented as Irina, buying/selling a home would be a breeze! our experience definitely was. You are amazing, Irina!

"Irina Owens was the realtor tasked with helping my wife and I find our first home. Surely we weren't easy, but Irina was! She is incredibly professional, knowledgeable, and made us feel like we had an advocate throughout the process Jo matter what. She's very patient, and can recognize what you're wanting in style and price very quickly.

I cannot recommend Irina Owens enough. She is a wonderful human and realtor with integrity."

"I met Irina through our neighborhood social media page. She was extremely professional and responsive. She staged my house so well, I almost didn't want to sell it, but we did sell it, on the first day the listing hit and for over asking price. If you are looking for a smart and responsive agent who knows Portland, I would highly recommend Irina."

"Irina came highly recommended, and after meeting with her, we were very impressed with her professionalism, friendliness, and experience. Soon after starting the process with her, we had several important family matters that came up. We chose to put our house sale on hold while taking care of these events. During this time (several months) Irina never prodded us to continue the process, in fact she was always there to offer support and check in with us. We were pleasantly surprised that she never once commented about the need to get going and put the home on the market, and allowed us to concentrate on family. When we were finally ready to put the house on the market, it was after the Covid 19 pandemic was a new reality. We were concerned about the possibility of not being able to show or sell the house, but without hesitation, Irina was again supportive with advice and information to continue getting it on the market during Covid 19. Hasson Realtors and her were already in the process of adjusting business to continue home sales, keeping all parties involved, safe, informed, and conforming to suggested Covid 19 protocol. This included virtual tours, reduced traffic through the house etc. The entire home sale during this critical time, was seamless and professional, with minimal contact with all parties involved. Irina was able to complete all this quickly and in minimal time, plus 2 full price offers the first day the house was on the market. The sale was smooth and quick, with Irina always there to answer any of our questions, offer excellent advice & support along the way. We had a positive experience throughout, and would highly recommend Irina."

"Irina was very knowledgable about the process and made me feel at ease about selling and what it entails. She gave me a reasonable idea of what to expect from the process and how much i could expect to list the house for, what things i would need to do to prepare, etc. her communication was prompt and excellent, and she made a process that seemed difficult and intimidating into one that was smooth and efficient, and virtually stress free. Cant recommend Irina enough."

Her responsiveness was impressive and her showings fit my schedule. I was impressed with her advice during negotiations and we got an accepted offer better than I had expected. I wouldn't hesitate recommending her to my friends and relatives."

"Irina was so organized and helped us search for a new home hundreds of miles from our home base. She communicated with us on a regular basis and set up house tours for us when we were in town. When we found the property we liked it was reassuring to know that Irina represented our interests and provided us with sound advice during the process. It really felt like we were her only clients (which I'm sure we weren't)."
