Gower leads and supports a team of 54 salespeople and support staff across four offices located in Ponsonby, Grey Lynn, Mt Albert & Birkenhead.
Gower started his working life as a Real Estate Salesperson in Christchurch. In 2010 he moved to Auckland to work with the Ray White Ponsonby team. Having enjoyed achieving successes for buyers and sellers during his time as a salesperson, it is being a part of each salesperson's individual successes that fires Gower up. However, he never forgets the reason why he’s in business - to achieve the best possible price in the shortest possible time frame for every vendor.
In the last three years, the company has been recognised as one of Ray White International's top five businesses.
These awards have coincided with the team's salespeople having unparalleled growth inside their own personal businesses due to the structures and processes implemented from business planning with Gower.
Passionate about giving back to the community, Gower has lead the Ray White sponsorship of Westmere and Bayfield schools joint event the biannual “Spring Ball”. Environmentally the team keep a portion of Meola creek clean and planted with native trees, as well as undertaking a yearly clean up of Cox’s Bay. Gower has also called auctions for Western Springs College and the New Zealand Contemporary Dance Company- raising thousands of dollars to help these groups achieve their goals too.
Total disclosure, legal rigour, and high ethical standards are all values that Gower and Ray White Damerell Group hold onto very tightly.
Having completed a law degree and received his Agents licence, Gower is very clear on the legal and ethical requirements involved in Real Estate work.

I am delighted with result you and your team achieved with the sale of my property. After my initial reluctance to market and sell my property via the Auction process I am truly thrilled with the result you achieved for me. I believe your dedication and commitment to my property contributed to an entirely successful and satisfactory conclusion. The marketing and Auction process you provided did my property the justice it deserved. It was conducted in a professional, efficient, and structured manner. I was kept informed throughout the process which allowed me to make an informed decision on the day. That decision was an easy one as the price surpassed my expectations. I am quite certain I would not have achieved the very pleasing result I did with any other form of marketing method. I have enjoyed the process and would be thrilled to recommend you and the auction process to anyone wanting to achieve the very best result for their property.John Pitman
