"We used Ian in July to sell our home in Nanaimo, as we were moving back to Calgary. Throughout the process Ian was extremely business like and efficient. His integrity, honesty and friendly nature made you feel very comfortable. His in depth market evaluation and resulting price recommendation was perfect, along with his professional presentation, which meant that our home sold very quickly. We would completely recommend Ian as an extremely hard working and competent Realtor, who you can trust to act in a completely confidential manner, and put your

"Four years ago Ian helped me with my purchase of a home in Nanaimo and,when my needs changed, he again helped me. We found the perfect smaller home in Ladysmith. He helped me through a difficult time waiting for probate of an estate, and negotiated with beneficiaries. None of which I would have been able to do without him. Ian is a kind and patient man ready and willing to take a frantic call from a client on a Sunday morning or long after close of office hours, and is always ready to calmly deal with a situation. I highly recommend Ian for anyone looking to buy or sell."
"We found Ian to be very professional and helpful at all times. He is prepared to go the extra mile to get you what you are looking for. We have no hesitation in recommending him as your real estate agent."

“Ian helped me purchase a mobile home in the spring when I was visiting from Alberta. He is a delightful man to deal with. So patient with a long distant client. He went out of his way to make this a stress free experience and stayed on top of every detail and was always ready with suggestions and answers to the endless questions and small glitches. I would highly recommend Ian as your representative in any real estate quest.”

We will not hesitate to recommend your services to others and will certainly give you a call the next time we need a real estate agent”

"OMG Ian is the man for your realtor. He was very patient with our demands of seeing the property over and over, poor man, I felt for him. He conducted himself with the utmost professionalism and with humor as well, which is important to me. Shows to me he was human and not a robot and I didn't get the sense he was in it for the money. Anything you asked, he provided for you and then some. He went out of his way to accommodate you. Viewing the property I was going to purchase was in a deplorable state and If you want to view what you can do with mobiles from scratch for little money you are invited to come and see my mobile as long as Ian accompanies you. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Ian to anybody. He serves people well."
"We are delighted to have met Ian and had the pleasure of working with him to find our dream home. We are from Ontario and we really liked his website so we could search in Nanaimo from home. He was extremely patient and gracious with us in travelling around all areas of Nanaimo over an extended period of time. I’m sure he tired of us looking at so many properties but he never showed it. It paid off in the end and we are extremely happy with our “new” home. He went over and above what we expected and helped us to settle in our home with lots of information about the area. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Ian and, God forbid, should we move again he will be hearing from us."

"I had Ian for my realtor and I’m very glad I did. Ian was pleasant and easy to deal with and nothing was too much trouble. He was professional but also very ethical, which is a rarity these days. I have no hesitation in recommending Ian to anyone looking for a good realtor who is respectful and caring, and goes the extra mile."
Selling your home is never an easy decision even when you want to move. When circumstances dictate a move it is even harder. We had to make that decision in early 2021 in a pandemic and a hot market.. We asked three realtors to come and appraise our home. Ian was the only one to come prepared. He already had researched the market for our area for what had recently sold, how long on the market and for what price. Ian had a list of what was currently for sale of comparable properties. Ian took the time after viewing to give himself a couple of days to come up with a realistic selling price and the pluses and minuses of our particular home and location. It was not an ideal lot for a family with small children or people over the age of seventy. He was the only one to do all that. The two others gave an instant price and wanted me to sign up NOW.
The pre sale prep was done quickly and efficiently The signage installed and we were ready. Then it snowed a lot. Nonetheless in a little over 2 weeks we had offers and a sale. The conditions of the sale got complicated by the buyer but all through it Ian was there to get things done and to soothe frayed nerves. His information on things that needed to be done once the house was sold is invaluable and the list of lawyers or Notary that could and would finalise a sale at short notice was top notch.
We have no hesitation in recommending Ian as a realtor of choice. In fact we did to friends and their house sold quickly aswell.
