I've always worked in sales as I love the buzz it brings. My estate agency career started in another firm over 10 years ago before I joined Team Dowen at the Peterlee branch.

I oversaw the move to our fabulous new premises at 1 Yoden Way and under my leadership the branch has grown to be one of the most successful in area.

We are a full service branch offering residential sales, auctions, mortgages, surveys and lettings.

Apart from my work which I love, my activities always include my family and in particular my beautiful grand children. I'm also a sun worshipper, so my foreign warm climate holidays are very much valued. Lately I've vacated in Cape Verde, Mexico and Egypt and can't wait to try my next exotic location

John Nicholson
Managing Director

Telephone: 0191 5180181

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.
