Our team at Professionals McDowell Real Estate

However, being around for over 100 years in Rotorua is not what makes the difference. McDowell Professionals are innovators! We are one of the very first real estate specific businesses established in the early 1900’s through the vision of Thomas McDowell and his son John. The forward-thinking approach remained our foundation as the next generations lead by Gordon McDowell and his son Ian McDowell continued this mantra. McDowell’s brought new initiatives such as Signboards, Open Homes and Auctions to the Rotorua market. At that time, these ideas were radical and so successful that they have become staples of the real estate industry.

Principal, Steve Lovegrove of McDowell Real Estate now commands a highly respected market leading position in the Rotorua market with comprehensive modern initiatives. Our team are continually training and developing a higher value experience for our clients. We are challenging the status quo and adapting constantly to the changing needs of todays clients, customers, tenants, landlords and holiday home owners.
