Meet The Olsen Team


 Ben Olsen, and Sue Olsen of The Olsen Team


The Olsen Team is the most successful real estate partnership in Lamorinda.  Sue and her son, Ben, have decades of experience between them, and bring a wealth of local knowledge and business acumen to each transaction.

Sue’s real estate career began in 1977.  A Midwestern transplant with a professional background as a triage nurse, she couldn’t find a quality agent to help her purchase a lot in Lamorinda.  She coupled her Midwestern values of graciousness and fairness with her professional nursing skills - putting people first – to form the basis for a successful real estate career.

Sue raised Ben with the same strong moral compass – an understanding that people matter more than numbers or dollar signs.  He dabbled in the tech field, but ultimately felt the pull of the family business was greater than his love for selling computer hardware and software.  He joined the family business in 2003, and has been working successfully alongside Sue ever since.

Clients benefit from Sue’s nearly forty years of experience and Ben’s modern day approach to listing and buying.  Year after year, Sue and Ben prove why The Olsen Team is the ultimate choice in Lamorinda real estate.

#1 in Lamorinda

Sue and Ben have been #1 in Lamorinda real estate transactions since 2003.  The Olsen Team has completed more than 400 transactions in the past decade, is #1 in Moraga Country Club real estate transactions for the past two decades, and sold 5 times as many MCC homes than the nearest competition in 2012 alone.  The Olsen Team is also #1 in total Moraga transactions for more than 10 years and counting.

Sue and Ben are well connected throughout the community.  They know who to call to get things done.  They also understand issues inherent to buying or selling in Lamorinda.

Sue and Ben have impeccable marketing skills, and know how to create a polished presentation when they represent sellers.  They provide valuable recommendations to homeowners who plan to sell at a future date. 

Community Support

The Olsen Team is the biggest business supporter of Moraga schools, donating $60,000 to Moraga Education Fund (MEF) within the past few years alone.  The Olsen Team supports and sponsors other community groups like the California Independent Film Festival, Rheem Theatre, Moraga Juniors and Moraga Chamber of Commerce.

Whether buying, selling, or just thinking of listing, call The Olsen Team to find out how they can make your next move a successful one.
