John Nicholson
Managing Director

Telephone: 01388 607889

In 1999, upon completing my education, I commenced my journey in estate agency as an apprentice at Dowen Sedgefield. Despite my youth at 20, I swiftly showcased my potential, earning a rapid promotion to the role of branch manager at Dowen Spennymoor. This accomplishment was followed by another step up, allowing me to oversee the dynamic Durham City branch, conveniently situated just minutes away from my residence along the serene River Wear.

In 2020, a significant opportunity arose for me to acquire Dowen from its founder, Denis Dowen. This pivotal moment stands as one of the proudest milestones in my life, marking my assumption of the role of managing director.

Under my guidance, Dowen has thrived, solidifying its position as one of the foremost and most accomplished estate agencies in the industry. Our comprehensive array of services encompasses all facets of estate agency, including sales, auctions, lettings, surveys, mortgages, and conveyancing.

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

Beyond my professional pursuits, I am a dedicated father, finding immense joy in nurturing my son. Engaging in property renovation projects is a personal passion, as is relishing the company of cherished friends and family during dining outings. I hold a deep appreciation for travel, especially to foreign destinations, and have a strong affinity for automobiles. Additionally, as an avid football enthusiast, I actively participate in Crossfit to maintain both my mental and physical well-being.

Trudie Bowes
Sales Director

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.
