About Me

WHO IS CHRIS MCGOWAN?Originally from Toronto Canada, I moved to Charlotte with my family in 1994. I grew up in the South Charlotte area and now reside in Fort Mill, SC. I attended Johnson & Wales University in Charlotte and received a Bachelor’s degree, double majoring in Business Marketing and Culinary Arts (If you need recommendations for good Charlotte restaurants, I’m your guy!) After working in technology sales and logistics brokerage for a few years I decided to enter the Real Estate industry. Having grown up with a parent who worked with Allen Tate, I lived and breathed the Real Estate business from a very young age. Being exposed to the business every evening at the dinner table and while riding in the car, I learned what it takes to be a good Realtor and what is involved in getting the job done. In 2015, I joined Lori McGowan and we formed The McGowan Group at Allen Tate. It’s exciting to bring my sales and marketing experience, knowledge of technology and social media, to the team.


WHAT AREAS DO I WORK IN? My office is located at the intersection of Providence Road and I-485. This is the area that I grew up in and where I went to school. I now reside in Fort Mill with my wife Meryl. The areas that we focus on are South Charlotte and Union County areas in North Carolina and Fort Mill and Rock Hill areas in South Carolina. I’m also focusing on, and very excited about the new revitalized neighborhoods in Charlotte that a lot of my clients are purchasing such as NoDa, Plaza Midwood, South End and Dilworth.


WHY YOU SHOULD WORK WITH CHRIS MCGOWAN? The McGowan Group has consistently been a top producer at Allen Tate. With over $200 Million in closed volume, we have consistently been in the Top 1% of agents in the Allen Tate Company. We have the knowledge, experience and tools to help you with both buying and selling. My clients appreciate my honesty and knowledge of the market and I always enjoy helping people find their perfect home! Please take a look at the testimonials from recent clients on this website.
