Trudie Bowes
Sales Director

Telephone: 0191 5142299

Since my departure from school, I have dedicated my professional life to the estate agency industry. For over 20 years, I have proudly served as the manager at Dowen Hartlepool alongside Sales Director, consistently striving for excellence.

Under my guidance, the branch and company has consistently ranked among the most prosperous in the area. This achievement can be attributed to the unwavering motivation shared by both myself and my exceptional team. We genuinely take pleasure in the process of selling and renting houses, a passion that shines through in our work.

Our commitment to delivering remarkable service has earned us consistent praise from our valued clients, many of whom return to us time and time again. We take great pride in this loyalty and strive to surpass expectations with every interaction.

If you are considering selling your home or would like to explore the option of a quick sale through The Great North Property Auction, I encourage you to reach out and ask for me, Trudie. I will personally visit your property, offering invaluable advice and providing you with detailed information about the exceptional selling and letting services we consistently deliver. Alternatively, you can conveniently book an appointment online by clicking here, and I will be in touch promptly upon receiving your details.

My work at Dowen is truly fulfilling, but my life extends beyond the office. Above all else, my family and my three beautiful children hold the center of my world. They are my constant source of joy and inspiration.

John Nicholson
Managing Director

Telephone: 0191 5142299

After completing my education in 1999, I embarked on my career in estate agency as an apprentice at Dowen Sedgefield. Despite my young age of 20, I quickly demonstrated my potential and was soon promoted to the position of branch manager at Dowen Spennymoor. This achievement was followed by another promotion, allowing me to oversee the bustling Durham City branch, conveniently located just minutes away from where I reside, near the tranquil River Wear.

In 2020, an opportunity presented itself for me to acquire Dowen from its founder, Denis Dowen. This pivotal moment stands as one of the proudest milestones in my life, as I took on the role of managing director.

Under my leadership, Dowen has flourished, establishing itself as one of the premier and most accomplished estate agencies in the industry. Our comprehensive range of services encompasses all aspects of estate agency, including sales, auctions, lettings, surveys, mortgages, and conveyancing.

If you are considering selling or letting your property, I invite you to contact me or my dedicated team at 0789-4582378. Alternatively, you can conveniently book a Free Valuation online by clicking here or reach out to me directly via email. It would be my honor to personally visit your property, engaging in a discussion on how to best position it in the market, leveraging my extensive local expertise for your benefit.

Beyond my professional endeavors, I am a devoted father and find immense joy in nurturing my son. Engaging in property renovation projects is a personal passion of mine, as is indulging in the company of cherished friends and family while dining out. I have a strong affinity for travel, particularly to foreign destinations, and hold a deep appreciation for automobiles. Additionally, I am an avid football enthusiast and actively participate in Crossfit to maintain my mental and physical well-being.

Dawn Ferguson
Branch Manager

Telephone: 0191 5142299

I live in the town and have worked in the town, as an estate agent, for many years.

Since commencing my career at Dowen, I've been more than humbled by the numerous gifts and cards brought to me, at the branch, by customers who have been delighted with the remarkable service levels I deliver.

I'm always in need of fresh stock to replace those properties I am selling.

So if you are planning on selling, pop in and see me, Dawn, for a chat and discussion about what we can do for you.

I'm meticulous in maintaining an up to date mailing list, so often I have people ready to view as soon as a home is listed.

Away from my job which I love, my social life is spent in and around the town, with family and friends as I am Sunderland born and bred.

Kelly Gee

Telephone: 0191 5142299

Dedication, self motivation and a professional friendly manner is what you'll get from me Kelly Gee when you visit Dowen at our Sunderland City branch.

I started my working years as a professional musician and supplemented my lifestyle with a career in retail and restaurants.

Then I made the career switch to estate agency when the demand of family life no longer balanced with restaurant hours.

Employment at Dowen has been the best career move I have made so far, as all my life skills have come to fruition. I'm working in a great team which is taking the business ever upwards.

If you are looking to sell or buy a home in Sunderland get in touch with me and I'll guide you through the process.

My home life involves my family and in particular caring for my beautiful little daughter
