Ian hails from England and has had many years experience in real estate in New Zealand. After great success in real estate in Wellington he moved to Auckland in 1988 and since then he has developed a specialist practice in Parnell and Remuera. Ian lives in Parnell and feels very comfortable working in this prestigious suburb, so much so that for more than a decade he has been widely recognized as one of the real estate experts in Parnell.
He is well known, colourful and respected; the majority of his business is based on referrals from past clients and from his social and business network. The results he has achieved in the market are spectacular, and are a significant factor in Barfoot & Thompson having such a dominant market share in Parnell.
If one wanted to summarise the tremendous benefits of having Ian involved in their real estate transaction the words would include - Reliable, Professional, Honest, Integrity, Dedicated, Results-driven, Friendly, Humorous, and Successful!
Ian does what he loves and loves what he does!
Ian is a pre-eminent salesperson. If one were not to involve him in significant Parnell and Remuera property transactions, it would be to the detriment of the client. I can thoroughly recommend him as a vital ingredient in local property success.
" I promise to leave no stone unturned in seeking a successful sale for my clients. I will do everything in my power to achieve extraordinary sales results. I love Parnell and I love success!".

"I interviewed agents from two companies before choosing Ian to sell my property. I felt his professional manner and knowledge of inner city Auckland properties would achieve the best price for me, especially with the backing of a large company like Barfoot & Thompson.
I also valued the lower fees charged by Barfoot & Thompson , as well as the more realistic advertising budget. Ian completely lived up to my expectations. His daily feedback kept me fully informed and he achieved an excellent result for me and my property.
I would definitely recommend both him and Barfoot & Thompson to friends and colleagues."
"Ian made selling my apartment as stress free as possible ? he has a great sense of humour and was always very positive and enthusiastic. He continually kept me updated on the progress of the sale. He was very proactive and knew the building well, which was great, because it meant he wasn't always asking me questions about the property! He was very approachable and well organized and always took on-board my comments and suggestions. It was a pleasure working with Ian and if I hear of anyone else in my block who is thinking of selling their apartment, I would not hesitate to recumbent Ian to act as their agent."Alexandra Meade
