Growing up in the Toledo, Ohio area Mallory McGowan-Nester was bred into the real estate, building, and development industry. At a very young age, Mallory would often travel with her father, Jim McGowan, to business meetings and to investigate new property purchases. She would spend time on new builds with her grandfather, one of the best builders in Toledo history, James H. McGowan.
Mallory studied business administration at Lourdes University while working with her father at his company, McGowan Properties. After attaining her degree, Mallory married her husband, Sean Nester, with whom she runs a residential and commercial building company, Sean Patrick Builders. Passionate about real estate and development, Mallory decided to obtain her Ohio Real Estate Salesperson license and work with The Danberry Company and McGowan Properties.
During Mallory’s lifelong involvement with real estate, she has developed key relationships and knowledge to make her a premier real estate salesperson in both the residential and commercial markets.
In her free time, Mallory loves to travel with her husband and children. She can play a mean game of golf, loves to train at the gym, and can be found playing babies with her daughter.
