Many to many select needed

I have one database with owners, one with property and one with links (relations). Each row in links tell what owner is connected to what property. More than one owner can share one property. But do i make a select of all the property one owner have, and how do i make a select of what owners that share a particular property?

Questions One:  What property's does "Bill" own?
Question Two: Who are the owners of "Red Scorpion"?

looks very like a homework to me? the idea is to join the relevant tables so that you can retrieve the info you needed...

Nope, its not homework :) Creating a CRM "ish" system to hold some document together. Have been away from programming 3 years, forgot about joins.  I check Your solution tomorrow. Looks great.
