Great Sense of Humor
Ian was great to work with and helped us find a home in the insane Seattle housing market. We'd just purchased and sold a home prior to our move out to the Northwest, but he had no problem walking us through the process again so we could discover differences between states. He took great notes during our inspection and helped watch our little daughter as we reviewed the home. His approach to our offer ended up being successful and we were into our new home within months, rather than the year or so we'd planned on.

Above and Beyond
Ian is probably the hardest working realtor in Seattle. Ian represented my husband and me on our most recent home purchase and we were incredibly impressed. We've worked with many realtors in the past, but never one as dedicated and responsive as Ian. He made sure all our questions were answered, and went above and beyond to follow through with every aspect of the deal. Even post-closing Ian continued to work to ensure that everything was perfect. Throughout the process Ian had our best interests in mind and never pressured us. I would highly recommend Ian to anyone buying or selling a home.

An Exceptional Person
Ian was an exceptional person to work with as a first time home-buyer. We interviewed several agents, and quickly knew he was a cut above. His excellence showed through at every step. Most importantly, we 100% feel that we wouldn't have gotten our home if it wasn't for Ian. He heard us loud and clear when we told him "this is the one," and he dedicated himself to doing everything possible to help us purchase a red hot home in an insanely competitive market. Because of lots of good guiding conversations, and using some of his smart tactics, we put together an offer that rose above the other ten pre-inspected offers, and even above the three at the same maximum offer price. In the end, we got the home we really wanted, and we felt supported and heard throughout the whole process. We are grateful to have worked with Ian, and cannot recommend him highly enough. - Brandon and Kara
Ian Came Up with Fresh New Strategies
The Seattle market is tough for buyers. Many of my colleagues and friends in search of homes in the Seattle market have yet to have an offer accepted and some given up. However, for us after 2 unaccepted offers we were beginning to feel the discouragement by competing buyers' ability to go "all cash", "20%+ over" and "guarantee a 10 day close". We felt there was absolutely no way to compete. Ian came up with fresh new strategies after each unaccepted offer and the third time was the charm. We are now Seattle homeowners after 3 offers and a little over a month of searching on weekends. Which we feel is ridiculously quick as a buyer.

Super Responsive and Kept us focused
Encouraging, responsive, creative and with a good sense of humor, those were the qualities we needed in a realtor and Ian was everything we could have wished for. Buying a home in Seattle's tough market today is a challenge that requires quick decisions, creativity and lots of patience. Ian provided us the best service possible. He was super responsive, both when we needed to look at homes with only moments notice but also when we decided to put in offers at the eleventh hour. He helped us put together strong offers and kept us focused. He had a good sense of humor and lots of patience with us as picky clients. He kept us going when we got discouraged and eventually helped us get the perfect home. We have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending Ian as your next agent. - Chris and Mette
