Who We Are

Dowling Lake Macquarie has a professional pedigree and is part of the Dowling Real Estate group of 15 agencies encompassing Newcastle, Lake Macquarie and the Hunter region since 1979. We will deliver a specialised service to the community focused on dual goals of integrity and results.

Real estate companies and agents all appear the same. They offer the same services, with every real estate agent claiming to be the best, it can be hard to judge whom to choose. Scratch the surface and you’ll discover dramatic differences in the way we operate and the results we achieve.

Our office occupies Cross Roads Glendale which is central to all of Lake Macquarie and Newcastle, with our postal address being 1/545 Main Road Glendale NSW 2285. Our window & iVisual digital displays gives us unrivalled exposure in the market place.
