John Nicholson
Branch Manager & Valuer

Telephone: 0191 3757599

After leaving school over 15 years ago, I commenced my career in estate agency as an apprentice at Dowen Sedgefield. At the age of only 23 I was promoted to the position of branch manager at Dowen Spennymoor and soon thereafter was promoted again to manage our very busy Durham City branch, from which I live, only a few minutes away, by the River Wear.  

Under my stewardship, the branch has gone from strength to strength. We are one of the leading and most successful estate agency branches in Durham City. We cover all aspects of estate agency including sales, auctions, lettings, surveys, mortgages and conveyancing.

If you are ready to sell or let, please call me or my team on 0191-3757599. Alternatively book on line by clicking here for your Free Valuation or simply e-mail me direct. It will be my pleasure to personally call at your property to discuss how best to take it to market and to offer you the benefit of my extensive local knowledge.

Outside of work, I recently became a dad for the first time. I enjoy property renovation projects, socialising with friends as well as fine dining, foreign holidays and having a nice car to drive. I'm an avid football fan, enjoy keeping fit and playing various sports.

Sally Crooks
Sales & Auction Negotiator

Telephone: 0191 3757599

I joined Dowen Estate Agents in 2013 and truly love working for this company. I've been in the property business for over 10 years having worked at other agents in Sedgefield, Hartlepool, Durham City and surrounding areas. The challenge of a sales environment is what motivates me whereby I find selling property particularly enjoyable and interesting. 

Sell with our Durham branch and I will ensure that you are looked after from start to finish. I'm a really keen sales negotiator and will do my utmost to get you the best price. Our company policy is to report feedback to our vendors after every viewing plus we will be in touch on a regular basis to discuss the progress of your house sale. You can be sure of both with me.

I know from experience that all estate agents are not the same. Some are exceptional. Some are poor. 

At Dowen we aim to be remarkable. We are truly customer and service focused.

Our Durham branch has a fabulous reputation for great service. Customer feedback is almost always 100% positive.

To experience the Dowen difference contact me on 0191-3757599. Alternatively book your Free Valuation on-line by clicking here. I'll contact you as soon as I get your details.

Away from the branch I am very busy mother of three boys. My hobbies include reading and swimming.

Mandy Pledger
Sales & Auction Negotiator

Telephone: 0191 3757599

I've been an estate agent for over 20 years and worked in many roles over that time with various companies.

Estate Agency is my passion and at Dowen Durham the service on offer from me will be the best.

If you are looking to buy a property, please contact me. Give me your specific requirements, then leave the rest to me

Away from work my kids, although grown up are still an important part of my life whilst my husband and I enjoy meals out and visiting new places.

Kirsty Wallace
Auction Sales Co-ordinator

Telephone: 0191 3757599

I have been employed with the Great North Property Auction to which Dowen was a founding member since its outset in 2014, apart from a small period of time when I went travelling.

My role is to co-ordinate the sale of the properties that Dowen Estate Agents presents, to us, to offer at auction.

I maintain regular contact with vendors, co-ordinate on-line and public property auctions, negotiate sales, process buyer deposits and essentially keep everything on track

If you are looking for a quick sale secured by a non refundable buyer deposit, please discuss this with Dowen or click here for a free valuation and I'll be in touch when I get your details.

Outside of work, I enjoy socialising with my friends and family. Plus of course I love travelling

Dawn Teggert
Lettings Portfolio Manager

Telephone: 0191 3757599

My employment in estate agency began in the 90's. I took a career break to raise my family after which I returned to work for a while, at an industrial company, as PA to the MD.

My love of estate agency saw me return to the profession as Lettings Portfolio Manager at Dowen Durham. The branch is immensely busy with lots of pace. The whole team works perfectly together in a truly happy enjoyable upbeat environment. My mission, like that of the company, is to deliver a remarkable letting experience for both our landlords and tenants. 

I'm always looking for fresh, well presented lettings properties to add to my branch portfolio. If you have a property or or even a portfolio of properties to let, either for me to fully manage or for me to tenant find on your behalf, please contact me on 0191-3757599. Alternatively click here to book your Free Valuation. As soon as I get your details I'll be in touch.

If you are a landlord dissatisfied by letting via another agent and would like to switch to Dowen, please call me and I'll do my best to make the transfer as transparent as possible.

I delight in helping first time landlords through the letting process. If you are new to letting, simply get in touch with me and I'll guide you through from listing to finding a tenant and managing the let thereafter.

If you are a reliable tenant looking for a home in the Durham area, please contact me with your requirements.

My outside interests include caring for my two children plus socialising with family and friends. We enjoy taking holidays together in the great outdoors. I live locally within a couple of miles of Durham branch.
