Contributed by: Don WinnerBy Jeff Barton - Apartment owners of the Trump Ocean Club have elected Punta Pacifica Realty founder Duncan McGowan president of the building’s homeowner’s association, the group charged with protecting the interests of owners in the iconic tower.
The association represents the owners of the 635 apartments in the Trump, the sail-like tower on the Punta Pacifica waterfront. The Trump is the first Trump-branded resort in Central America and the largest mixed-use project in South America.
“I’m honored to serve the owners,” Mr. McGowan said. “Our responsibility is make sure all the owners see the level of maintenance, amenities and service they should expect from this five-star building.”
Top priorities will include creating greater transparency for the owners, reducing maintenance fees and ensuring the best possible service.
Mr. McGowan is a natural choice to head the association. Punta Pacifica Realty has handled more sales and rentals in the Trump than any other real estate or property management agency. The firm also manages more property in the tower than any other agency, offering tenants a complete menu of services, from in-house maintenance crews to state of the art security systems.
A Scottish Nicaraguan who earned a biology degree from the University of Toronto, Mr. McGowan has been living and working in Panama since 1998. He helped develop customer relations programs with Trump’s high-end clientele, before founding PPR in 2010, Panama City’s first full-service real estate agency.
Since its inception, Punta Pacific Realty has handled more than $460 million of real estate sales in Punta Pacifica and manages the majority of the luxury apartment rentals in the exclusive neighborhood of waterfront towers.
“The Trump is the premier building in Central America and I look forward to helping the owners live the Panama City lifestyle and get the most out of their investment,” Mr. McGowan said.
Punta Pacifica Realty's offices are located in Aqualina Tower in the commercial space. As well as they have a boutique office located in Trump Ocean Club in front of Mailboxes Etc. (+507) 836-5991 email@example.com www.puntapacificarealty.com
