Ian is a fifth-generation Lorne resident and a passionate community member. His previous community roles include Chair of Board Lorne Hospital, Captain Lorne Country Club, President/Secretary of Lorne Football Club, and Secretary Lorne Cricket Club, and he currently coordinates the Lorne Surf Club Nippers Program.
Ian has worked for more than 25 years listing, selling and statistically analysing the unique Lorne and district property market. Never satisfied with simply sitting back in a small town environment, he has always sought to establish multiple relationships with professionals on a state and national level, ensuring that the standard of real estate service in this region is second to none.
During a dedicated lifetime as a fully licensed estate agent, Ian has successfully trained with leaders in the Real Estate Industry including John McGrath, Peter Gilchrist, Robert Bevan, David Pilling, and Michael Sheergold, and completed numerous REIV designated industry courses.
"In an industry that rates poorly in the 'most trusted professionals' category, I have consistently strived to improve that perception. While many focus on short-term financial gain, I have always focused on the long-term benefits of providing honest, faithful and old-fashioned service. I take pride in knowing that myself and my team have been branded within the industry as the 'agent to sell through' as opposed to the 'agent to buy through'."
