Re/Max Affiliates Realty Ken MacGowan

After a successful career in the world of Accounting/Finance (at Computing Devices Company – now General Dynamics, an international accounting firm and Accenture/Synerlogic Inc.) with his B.Comm. from Carleton University and his accounting designation (CPA, CMA), Ken obtained his Real Estate Sales Representative license (later his Real Estate Brokers license) in 1990.  After working with an independent Brokerage for a short time he joined the RE/MAX network in 1992.  

Ken is celebrating 29 years in real estate this year. His achievements have been recognized by company awards – Top Agent & Top Team at RE/MAX Affiliates, President’s Club, 100% Club, Platinum Club, Chairman’s Club (MacGowan Team), RE/MAX International Hall of Fame and the RE/MAX International Lifetime Achievement Award – fewer than 1% of RE/MAX Associates worldwide have achieved this award!

As a lifelong resident of Ottawa, Ken loves his hometown and believes in strong communities and in giving back to his community. He and his family support The Ottawa Hospital Foundation, Ottawa Humane Society, United Way, Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation and the Miracle Home Program which benefits the Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario (CHEO).  He also serves on the Finance Committee at the Ottawa Real Estate Board.

Ken’s Real Estate education includes Accredited Buyer Representative (ABR), Registered Relocation Specialist (RRS) as well as Real Estate Broker’s license from the Real Estate Council of Ontario, Ontario Real Estate Association and membership in the Ottawa Real Estate Board.

Outside of real estate Ken enjoys family time with his wife Sue (a recently retired Sr. Public Servant), son Mike, daughter-in-law Robyne, 2 young Grandaughters, and son Brian as well as walking Labrador Retriever Mix (rescue dog) Gordon on the many neighbourhood pathways. A favourite summer vacation destination is the family Cottage in Prince Edward Island, Algonquin Park or traveling to Europe.  Ken also spends time cheering on the Ottawa Senator’s in the winter (along with some golf time in Florida) and the Ottawa Redblack’s in the summer/fall.  Ken’s favourite activity in summer is driving his roadster to play an occasional game of golf at the Mississippi Golf Club in Appleton.
