According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, there are approximately 700,000 physicians in the United States who work in excess of 60 hours per week. While their earning potential is the highest among any profession in the US, a blizzard of government regulations and a host of clinical and economic issues leave little time for a doctor to manage their professional and personal lives.
In response, an elite group of professionals is emerging as specialists to the medical community. In recognition of his work with area health care executives and physicians, David Gowans of Coldwell Banker has been named a MD Preferred Real Estate Agent. Each year, US Medical Specialties, Inc., a national medical consulting firm, recognizes excellence in service to the medical community in a number of disciplines including real estate, insurance, accounting, banking, financial and legal services. The goals of the MD Preferred Program for Real Estate include identifying, acknowledging and promoting agents who provide service excellence to the medical community.
David Gowans specializes in selling homes on the San Francisco Peninsula from Palo Alto to Burlingame. His unique military background and training allow him to provide top notch services to medical professionals that need to buy a new home or sell their existing home. “David is just unstoppable.” says Justin Fine, a recent client. “He follows up every detail, works until the job is done, and then comes back for more. It’s like having a highly skilled, butt-kicking professional as your personal assistant to take care of all the dirty work” Fine said. David’s service area includes Palo Alto, Portola Valley, Woodside, Redwood City, Redwood Shores, Atherton, Menlo Park, Belmont, San Carlos, San Mateo, Hillsborough, Foster City, Burlingame, and on occasion La Honda and the Half Moon Bay area.
Every MD Preferred real estate agent is selected for their commitment to serving the healthcare industry. They often work in close concert with other community based MD Preferred professionals helping area medical providers attract and retain talented physicians. MD Preferred agents are uniquely qualified to act as recruiting partners to area practice managers and hospital administrators. As partners they can tell the community story while the medical recruiter tells the clinical story. Their knowledge of the area and understanding of the special needs of physicians and their families saves everyone time and resources.
“We are proud of the recognition we have received. In an environment of critical physician shortage, we understand that most physicians considering a career in our community will make their decision based primarily on life style issues,” Mr. Gowans observed. “The last thing we want to have happen is for that prospective physician to go elsewhere because the local support services he or she needed were either not available, were unreliable or did not meet the expectations of the physician. We are always ready to meet with area physician groups to demonstrate how high net worth, high income professionals can access incredibly attractive financing and take advantage of the once in a life time values we’re seeing in today’s market.”
