Those who met Ian early in his career say he combined ‘an unusual set of attributes’, noting that he was ‘highly motivated and perceptive but also calm, tolerant and adaptable’. Renowned for his expertise and experience, he has achieved many successes and he’s held in high regard within the industry. He has been the keynote speaker at numerous National Real Estate Conferences. In May 2011, after 28 years at the helm of the company he founded, Ian made the decision to step down from the role and hand over to his son David. Ian has often said ‘I wish I was a salesperson in this modern era of technology and marketing excellence’. Ian now has what he wished for and has formed a sales alliance with his wife Linda, who is also administration support for the team. They live at the Glades Golf Club ‘Easthill residential precinct’ in Robina and specialise in quality properties in the central Gold Coast and Hinterland areas.
