About Scott Owens
Celebrating 42 years in real estate, Scott Owens is the second generation of his family to be actively involved in real estate sales and development in the Bloomington market. His father, Jimmy Owens, and his uncle, Nathan Silverstein, were both active real estate developers. Jimmy was well-known as one of the most knowledgeable real estate brokers in the Bloomington area. Scott was fortunate to have the tutelage of his father from an early age.
After serving in the business with his father at Jimmy Owens Realty starting in 1974, the Owenses joined Bud Bryan and Bill Reed to form Owens, Bryan & Reed REALTORS in 1976. The firm quickly became the major force in the Bloomington market and was widely known throughout the region as a top quality company. As a principal in the firm, Scott was involved in hundreds of residential, commercial and investment transactions. Additionally, as a part of OBR Construction, Scott had many experiences with real estate development and residential construction.
In 1985, Scott was appointed to the historic FDIC (Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation) Oversight Team installed at Continental Illinois National Bank as a part of the workout team after the failure of the bank. This experience allowed Scott to work with the sale and liquidation of hundreds of properties at a national level. In 2000, Owens Bryan and Reed merged with a state wide franchise. For the next 8 years Scott was a broker associate with the newly formed firm. Since then, the firm has evolved into what it is today under Scott’s leadership.
Scott was honored with the status of REALTOR Emeritus by the National Association of REALTORS in 2014 for 40 years of service.
