Meet Ian

Achieving Your Goals. Working For You.

It is a privilege helping my clients with home ownership. My approach revolves around the highest level of personal attention, innovative and sound strategy, and keeping the process enjoyable. As an entrepreneurial business owner and a former NCAA D1 swimming athlete, I’m relentless in doing whatever it takes to achieve your buying or selling goals.

Every property, transaction, and esteemed client is wonderfully unique. Creating successful outcomes for clients revolves around my background in business and real estate, and effective communication. Prior to becoming a full time licensed real estate agent, in 2006, I launched a line of innovative daypacks called IVAR and sales pioneered the brand into over 300 retail doors in the USA and internationally. For almost two decades, I’ve also been involved in the management of family commercial properties, which has given me an understanding of real estate from an important investment perspective.

I’m a native of Marin County and recently moved my family to the town of San Anselmo after 14 years in the Cow Hollow neighborhood of San Francisco. I graduated from the University of Denver in 2004 where I studied Finance and Marketing. At Denver, I was a member of the DU Pioneer’s swim team.

Finally, yet certainly not least, I’m a husband and father of twins. When I’m not with my family or working, you can find me running along the streets and trails of the beautiful Ross Valley.

Henri | SELLER

My wife and I just closed on our first property in Berkeley. Ian was a fantastic resource for us first-time homebuyers. He was responsive, knowledgeable, and very eager and willing to help us understand the ins and outs of the overall homebuying journey. He was our unquestioned go-to person throughout the process. With Ian's guidance and support, we were able to quickly identify a property and close on that property. We couldn't have done it without him. We will be recommending him to family and friends in the future and would love to partner with him again if/when we are looking to buy again.
