Trudie Bowes
Sales Director

Telephone: 0191 5813355

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 5813355

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.

Gaynor Watson
Branch Manager & Valuer

Telephone: 0191 5813355

I've been employed in estate agency for many years.

At Dowen I initially worked at the Sedgefield branch as a sales negotiator before moving to Seaham to work in lettings.

Ultimately I was promoted to branch manager/valuer and have overseen the recent refit of the branch. 

Under my leadership Dowen Seaham is moving from strength to strength. Residential sales have always been buoyant here, but now our auction and lettings business has taken off in a substantial way too.

If you are ready to sell or let or would like to discuss auctioning your property, simply contact the branch and ask for me Gaynor to call round and see you. You can also conveniently book a valuation on-line by clicking here. As soon as I get your details, I'll be in touch.

My social life away from the office revolves around my husband and family. I have 2 wonderful kids, both of which are at university. My husband and I enjoy camping, or the new modern glamping to be correct plus attending music festivals and our trips abroad

Christine Craggs
Sales & Auction Negotiator

Telephone: 0191 5813355

After working for other estate agents, my employment with Dowen began at the Sunderland branch, before I transferred to Seaham.

In this branch the three of us make up a great sales and lettings team. All of us are approachable, down to earth people committed to delivering remarkable customer service.

Why not call in and see me Christine to discuss what we at Dowen Seaham can do for you. I'm fully conversant with all aspects of our business and will be delighted to be of assistance

Outside of the office, my husband and I live locally. We like to holiday in Portugal and I also enjoy the company of my 2 dogs, especially exercising them on the beach.

I have been employed with the Great North Property Auction to which Dowen was a founding member since its outset in 2014.

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.
