Steve Bowden Rentals, Property Management & Sales.

Stephen started in Estate Agency straight from school in North London in 1987. Starting as an office junior he steadily worked his way up over the years to office manager. In 1996 he moved to South London to take up a position as Branch Manager with Woolwich Property services before helping to open the flagship Andrews office in Streatham. After Stephen moved to Bantry he set up and established Bowdens Estate Agents where he quickly became known as the number one letting agent. He became recognizable to everyone by his different approach using the internet, Facebook and Twitter to interact with the local community, and also driving everywhere in his Bowdens Estate Agents emblazoned van which people will now see in the REA Celtic Properties colours. In 2013 I availed of the opportunity to join John, Carmel and Tricia at REA Celtic Properties. As REA Celtic Properties are a 'Chartered Firm' they adhere to the highest standards.

These are the standards that Stephen wishes to maintain.
