Bowlds is new manager of MI Coldwell Banker Bain

The Mercer Island Coldwell Banker Bain has appointed EJ Bowlds, managing broker, to lead the company’s Mercer Island flagship office. Bowlds was previously the managing broker of Coldwell Banker Bain in Issaquah and started his new Mercer Island position at the end of March.

In his new role, Bowlds will oversee operations such as agent and office business development on Mercer Island.

“I’m thrilled and excited to have the opportunity to manage one of the top real estate offices in the country,” said Bowlds. “Mercer Island is a unique and dynamic market, and I look forward to helping my agents further their success with their clients.”

Bowlds’ real estate career began in 1978, and he has been employed as a managing broker for Coldwell Banker Bain since joining in 1997.

Bowlds holds a bachelor’s degree in political science from Carroll College in Helena, Mont. He resides in North Bend, Wash., with his wife of 20 years, Sandra. The couple has one daughter and two grandchildren. As a hobby, Bowlds collects books and has a library containing nearly 4,000 volumes.
