Experience – Expertise – Integrity

For Complete Confidence in Property Purchasing

The Experienced and Trusted, Sydney Property Buyers Advocacy Service.

The Sydney region is a highly competitive and ever changing real estate market, a place where you need a professional and experienced buyers agent who will look out for your best interests alone. McGowan Property Buyers comes with 30 years experience in the field and many trusted relationships with agents in the areas it services.

McGowan Property Buyers will tailor their service to the needs of each individual client and can assist them through the entire buying process, or provide stand alone Evaluation, Negotiation and Auction Bidding services. 

As a seasoned market area agent, McGowan Property Buyers Specialise in the North and Northwest suburbs of Sydney so their clients can be assured they know the suburbs they service including: the transport options, the best streets, the busiest streets, and the school catchments.

Most importantly they know and track the property market in these areas and have trusted relationships with agents that benefit their clients.

McGowan Property Buyers only offers a Buyers advocacy service, it does not offer Property management services or vendor advocacy services. As a result, it always remains focused on its core business of helping its clients achieve their property ownership goals.

Meet Cathy McGowan

After gaining a Business degree from the University of Technology, Cathy embarked on a successful career in accounting and finance. Sensing she had more to give, she then left a promising career at a large international chartered accounting firm to pursue her passion for property. 

What followed was a diverse and interesting career path from Real Estate sales and then working for the licensing and regulatory authority, the Office Of Fair Trading, as a Real Estate Investigator. From there Cathy moved to the Industry’s Professional Body, The Real Estate Institute of NSW, working in roles in membership liaison, as well as agent compliance and professional standards. 

Cathy’s work in professional standards and agent conduct, gave her a unique insight into how agents work and buyers and vendors think, as well as a platform to network with agents.

With a real desire to get back into the bricks and mortar of real estate and wanting to help buyers, Cathy approached an award winning buyers agency and has gained invaluable experience as a buyers agent over the past 11 years.

Now she has decided to start her own boutique agency, where she can concentrate on helping people achieve their property dreams.

Alternatively if clients have another charity they are passionate about, Cathy is open to discussing supporting that charity, as long as its status is verified.
