Daniel McGowran M.N.A.E.A - Founder & Head of Valuations

Your home is your happy place, it’s so much more than just bricks and mortar. It’s a place for couples, families and friends to be together and it’s where memories are made, so it can be a wrench to move on.

I’ve started my own business because I recognise this and I’m passionate about the journey of the client. I feel the industry, generally, doesn’t currently provide a complete bespoke service where the client is looked after by the business owner, from start to finish.

I’m originally from North West London, however I moved to Shropshire to start a family. My extended family are from North Shropshire, so I’ve spent a lot of time in the county over the years and it’s a place that’s close to my heart.

My experience includes working and managing award winning estate agencies in North West London, spanning across 20 years. Utilising my skill set and successful blueprint I’m here to help others achieve their goal of moving home.

Our goal is to become the go-to property person for my clients regardless of whether they are currently looking to move or rent, or just want some advice for the future. Essentially, I’m here to build meaningful relationships and add value to those in the local community. Everyone needs the number of a property expert in their phone and that’s what I’m here for.

We have been lucky enough to open a prominent office on Albion Hill in Oswestry in 2023, we look forward to growing as a company and being an integral part of the community.

Charlotte McGowran - Consultant

First and foremost a home for me is where you nurture and bring up your family.

A home is an extension of your personality, a place where you can close the door and switch off to the world, in a time where we have been advised to stay at home more we have found that the home has become a multipurpose place, whether you are teaching your children, working from home or just managing the day to day chores of house maintenance, we have learned to love our homes and become emotionally attached to them.

Having grown up in Shropshire I understand the importance of community, I attended Moreton hall school for over 10 years, some of personal favorite spots are the historic Powys castle, the faded elegance of Erddig house, the walks of Attingham park and the exciting vibrancy of the British ironwork centre.

With a background in Television and theatre I have had the opportunity to travel and I always look forward to returning to my home in Shropshire.

Being a creative, my love for interior design and property has been further fuelled by Daniel, we are completing our second renovation of an Edwardian home and I feel my attention to detail is most helpful when dressing a home, staging a home for viewings or matching the perfect property for our searching applicants.
