We listed our property with Ian & he was successful in obtaining a very quick sale at a price we were happy with. Ian is totally professional but he has the happy knack of also being a great guy in the conduct of his profession. Nothing is too much trouble for him. He goes that extra 10 yards. He is a credit to the real estate industry. Our rating 10 out of 10.

We found Ian Shortell great to sell with. He was always honest, up-front and well informed of the market. He is very personable and interacts with both sellers and buyers with integrity and respect. We will definitely work with Ian again.

Kendrick & Benita

We could not be any happier than we are with the process employed by Ian to sell our property. Within 3 weeks of listing with Ian we had a contract, at list price!!! Ian involved his whole team in the process and attracted a large number of interested buyers. Ian kept us up to date with all activities associated with open homes and private inspections and worked within our time frames. Very obliging and friendly with a vast knowledge of this area.

Ian Shortell you are a person who makes life easier and better for everyone around you. Your continual acts of thoughtfulness and kindness brighten each day. What you did for me will glow in my memory, reviving pleasant feelings every time I think about it. I appreciate you, and I thank you for successfully purchased my property in Redland area.


Ian is a great agent. He is realistic and knows the local market well. We have used him as our agent several times to buy and sell and have been very happy with his service.

Russell Alleway

We can highly recommend Ian and his entire team after the sale of our townhouse. It was not the easiest time to be on the market with our property, but their endeavor brought the desired result. Thanks Ian.


We have used Ian to sell several investment properties and two personal moves. He gives a straight forward view of the market conditions and a realistic opinion of likely end result of the sales process. Our purchasers in these moves all indicated to us their appreciation of his straightforward style and integrity. We have no apprehension in recommending him

Mal & Richmond Gothard

Ian was a great help in navigating entering the rather confronting market as first home buyers. All throughout the process Ian made sure that we knew what needed to be done and why as well as letting us know what was ahead. Made the process much easier than we thought that it was going to be.

Matthew & Jacinta

Ian was exactly the type of Agent we needed, after a bad experience with another Agency. They were proactive with the sale and kept us informed the whole way, While he was at all times professional, the communication was always friendly.


Ian delivered a fantastic result for us with the sale of our house. He was approachable, provided excellent advice and worked hard to get the price we were after. We would highly recommend Ian to anyone wanting to sell their property.

Raymond Whitta

We used Ian as our agent to sell two of our properties. He is a first rate person and professional in every way. If we were to sell our current house that we have just built we would ask Ian to do the job.

Peter Margo
