Charles McDowell

Spear’s Review

‘Success breeds success, and reputation breeds success in this market,’ says Charles McDowell, the discreet agent who’s been operating in London’s super-prime market for more than two decades.

He branched out from Russell Simpson to set up his boutique firm in 2002, focusing on homes and mansions in Chelsea, Kensington and Belgravia. McDowell largely operates as an adviser to vendors, while also being active in buying advisory. He is valued for his attention to privacy is renowned for his connections in the Middle and Far East.

‘Some agents are inclined to tell people what they want to hear,’ he says. ‘We pride ourselves on telling it as it is, and letting clients know when something’s not right.’

Adviser Profile

Charles McDowell has built up the boutique property business everyone wants to emulate: small, discreet, personal and professional. The company has gone from strength to strength employing Harry Clifton who is a superb addition nearly five years ago.

Charles and Harry’s honesty, professionalism and straight talking attracts a lot of the world’s super rich across all age groups. They tell you not only what you want to hear but more importantly what you need to know in a very charming and collaborative way.

Charles McDowell has had one of the highest rates of repeat business in the industry over many years. Charles McDowell Properties has the opposite of a one-size-fits-all approach.
