“Ian recently sold our home achieving a street record price! Ian is 100% dedicated, friendly, professional, prompt with feedback/communications and his local knowledge and expertise is second to none. During the process Ian went far above and beyond what you would expect from an agent – including driving around Brisbane to locate parts for our blinds prior to our first open home. To say I would highly recommend Ian is an understatement, Ian actually made selling our home an enjoyable experience. Thanks for everything Ian – I think the boys and I will actually miss having you around.” Kathryn & Michael Lindsey, Wakerley

“Upon deciding to sell our house at Manly West, we had meetings with several local agents. However we chose Ian Walkley, and he proved to be very professional, reliable, extremely courteous and very pleasant to deal with. Ian also was in regular communication with us during the process of selling the house and always got back to us with feedback after an inspection. He had several good suggestions how to present our property to its best advantage and we would certainly use Ian if we ever considered selling again and we have no hesitation in recommending Ian to any prospective seller or buyer.” Rudi Ziemer, Manly West

“I have used Ian Walkley now when both buying and selling property. He treats both vendors and buyers with respect and common courtesy. He ensures that he has comprehensive and credible information for any property he is working with, so buyers can be clearly informed of their potential purchase. He also ensures that the presentation of the property will be to the highest standard, and ensures that through advertising it is exposed to “all” potential buyers. I have no hesitation in recommending Ian whether selling or buying.” Alister Campbell & Belinda Hill, Wakerley

“We selected Ian above three other local agents, primarily because we felt a strong sense of trust with Ian and that he would work to get us the best price, not a quick sale. His knowledge of the area is second to none and he provided a lot of good advice in how to present our home for the best outcome. As it happened, we have three offers from the first open home, and Ian was able to negotiate them to our agreed price point within 24 hours. I’d thoroughly recommend Ian if you are looking to sell your house, he is trustworthy, courteous, approachable and responsive. We were very pleased with the outcome Ian achieved for us.” Tony Webster, Wakerley

“When we decided to get a market appraisal for the value of our family home, we approached Ian. Ian Walkley gave us a comprehensive report for our home, including sales and comparisons for other homes in the area, he also explained the sales process in great detail should we wish to place on the market. We decided to employ Ian for sale of our family home as he was very professional and not a pushy agent who was interested in making a quick buck at our expense. We could not of be happier in the way he marketed our property, including a detailed 3D walk through of home which brought many interested buyers. ( Nobody likes turning up to open home only to find it looks nothing like the photos). Thanks Ian for making the sale of our home such a pleasurable experience.” Ewan & Dawoon Brooks, Gumdale
“Ian provides a level of service that all REA’s should aspire to achieve! From the excellent detailed property brochure to delivering on what has been agreed we have no hesitation in recommending Ian to others. While many REA’s go an extra mile Ian went that extra few more miles to ensure that the sale of our property was completed on time, Thank You Ian! It has been a pleasure to conduct a sale through you.” Malcolm & Anne Irwin, Wakerley
“Selling a house can be a stressful experience, but having Ian Walkley as our agent has made the process much smoother. He is a professional, dedicated, genuine, straight-forward and down to earth individual. His calm manner and level of experience set him apart in a competitive industry. He has been able to achieve an excellent result for us in a very short time. We would highly recommend Ian to anyone who is wanting to sell a property.” Robyn & Mark Fraser, Wakerley
“Ian Walkley first came to our notice last year when we were starting to think of selling our house. We spoke to him then and told him that we weren’t ready to put the house on the market at that time but would be looking to do so soon. Ian was never pushy, but kept in regular contact to find out how things were going. When we were ready we called him in and spoke to him about selling. He was knowledgeable about the market and potential for our house, we easily agreed on a sensible marketing approach and target price and we were more than happy to sign up with him.
He was professional at all times, very helpful with the presentation of the house even experimented with videos from his new drone camera to show our property off to the best advantage. Everything was handled very professionally by Ian and we had plenty of interest in our house. In a little over a week we had a signed contract of sale. Negotiations with the buyer went smoothly and we were happy with the price achieved. I can highly recommend Ian.” Pauline and Vaughn Clair, Wakerley
“I was delighted with the outcome of Ian’s marketing strategy. With a modest budget and using quality material Ian persisted in following up buyers to bring me an outstanding result in a difficult market. He worked hard, communicated well and achieved what is a record in Wakerley for its type. I couldn’t recommend Ian more highly.” Amanda Fitzpatrick, Wakerley
“It is rare that you find a real estate agent that you can trust and know they will get you the best price possible. We were so lucky to have that and more with Ian. We are so appreciative of his advice and constant communication.” Kelly and Nathan Fairon, Wakerley
“10 out of 10 for service, communication and outcome. Ian guided and helped us with utmost professionalism during our sale and brought us results after the first open. He says what he does and does what he says. A breath of fresh air and an agent you can trust. I would confidently recommend Ian to anyone looking to sell and would not hesitate to work with him again. Thank you Ian.” Susan and Ken Reich, Bulimba
“Ian’s genuine and friendly personality provided comfort throughout what can be a stressful process.” Nicole and Simon Ellinor, Manly West
“Thank you Ian for all your hard work in securing the sale of our home. We were very happy with the brochures and post sized cards that you distributed around. They were of a very high standard and lots of people commented on them. You were always courteous and very helpful in a host of things during the time of putting the house up for sale. Always in communication with us on updates and feedback after open home days. We would gladly recommend Ian to any prospective home sellers who want a professional person to sell their home.” Kevin and Lorraine Bray, Wakerley
“Ian was a pleasure to work with. He established a very successful sales strategy for our home, he kept us informed throughout the process and was quickly able to identify real buyers from the phonies. We have recommended Ian to friends and would use him again. Having now bought a house with another agent I can reflect that Ian spending time with us explaining the position of the potential buyers, their thinking and agreeing strategy was very helpful, as well as the property reports and feedback time after open houses. Ian was extremely helpful in letting us know how far we might be able to take a negotiation and the risks involved – he acted like a true ‘mediator’. Other agents just take a price and give no indication or help to understand the ‘temperature’ of the seller, which I think is higher risk of the sale falling through due to misalignment.” Sarah and Steve, Wakerley
“Ian did a great job in helping us secure the price that we wanted for our block of land.” Lynne and Victor, Wakerley
“Ian was very friendly and professional in handling the selling of our house. We were constantly updated on the progress of the marketing and sale of the property.” Lien and Hien, Lota
“I would like to thank you for being my agent and for the great professional job you did selling my home. You were ever present and accommodating with any problem I had and I would gladly recommend you to anyone looking to sell their home. Your professionalism and attention to detail shone through as a most comforting attribution to your client. I wish you all the best in the future.”
Charlene Carr, Wakerley
“A huge thank you to Ian who was able to get the price we wanted in record time. Always professional, honest and involved. Very available in ensuring our sale went smoothly. Thank you Ian.” Matt and Pam Finch
“My husband did the ground work to find a suitable agent to market and sell our house. He came up with Ian and we both found him to be very knowledgeable on the market in Wakerley. After 3 weeks we had a contract on our house which unfortunately fell thru’ but a backup offer was immediately put into place by Ian. We achieved a good price for our property, in fact it was on the high end of scale for properties sold in Wakerley for a low set house. We would have not hesitation in recommending Ian if you wish to sell your property.” Robyn & Ken Winchester, Wakerley
“I have moved house 16 times. Bought 16 houses so I know what I am talking about. With Ian I have a had a straight forward easy transaction with no games and lots of straightforward effective communication and consistent, quick follow through on all matters. I highly commend him to you. Ian is by far the best real estate agent I have experienced.” Yildiz Sethi, Wakerley
“We would like to express our sincere thanks for your approach to selling our home. Ian’s marketing plan is the 1st thing that stands out from the crowd – it is comprehensive & extremely professional. Then you get to know the man, he is courteous, punctual & shows respect to both client & potential buyers. We watched homes for sale in the area with other agents starting off with over inflated prices, sitting on the market for weeks/months, only to drastically drop their prices to sell. Ian hits the mark with his valuations from day 1 & strives to achieve a good price for the client. We thank Ian again & would highly recommend him for sellers or buyers.” Dorothy and Steve Cannon, Wakerley
“The timing was perfect when we met Ian, he was out and about marketing another property in the neighbourhood and we were about to prepare our property for sale. Ian provided excellent advice and clear direction and we had no hesitation in signing him as our agent. Ian’s marketing expertise and knowledge is very impressive. Communication was frequent and transparent and I would say that these attributes along with his strong negotiation skills and warm personality make him a top real estate agent. We highly recommend Ian and will no doubt consult him again for our future real estate requirements.” Samantha and Andy Bilton, Upper Mt Gravatt
“Once again we have had the pleasure of dealing with Ian during the busy, and often trying, time of real estate transaction. Ian’s regular communication coupled with pleasant and personable demeanor always makes for a more enjoyable experience. On top of this Ian has an excellent knowledge of the market and provides a very professional service, which ultimately leads to the best result for a vendor. We highly recommend Ian and would gladly approach him again for any of our future real estate needs.” Claire and Rhys Davies, Upper Mt Gravatt (repeat clients)

“We recently attended an open home at Manly West with Ian Walkley, as a buyer. We have been involved in real estate since 1980 buying and selling. The first thing that struck me about Ian was his professional layout and the setup of items at the entry to the home. It was all about the buyer, not Ian. He was dressed professionally, had a firm handshake and great eye contact.
We were given a booklet, not a piece of paper, which contained detailed information on the house and the local area. This booklet demonstrated the length and depth Ian had researched in his role and to present the owners property. He had a full understanding of the home and could answer every question, from heights to widths.
Ian is truthful, focussed, articulate and not overbearing. He is driven and had a completed contract ready to fill out on the spot if we chose to make an offer, and we did. I think that if I were looking to sell my property and wanted a ‘Real Estate Professional’ who could represent me and my asset in the market place with integrity, Ian Walkley is that man. The rest, less a small few, need to lift their game, if they want to aspire to this level of professional selling.”  Des & Sandra Prien, Manly West

“As a first time homebuyer I was not only nervous but also unsure about the whole process. Luckily I met the friendliest real estate agent on the market! Ian Walkley is a kind and caring agent that will be with you every step of the way. Investing in a home is a very big decision and comes with an array of intricacies, but Ian was able to guide us through with great professionalism and an understanding of our needs. Any queries we had were promptly responded too and any problems we had were easily fixed. We were also provided with additional information that aided us in making this big decision.
Ian understands the value of clear communication, and makes himself accessible at all times – we have never been worried or frazzled. Ian has worked with us from our first inspection until now, even after we bought our house, helping us to contact local painters, solar panel installers and more. We want to thank Harcourts for being an honest and helpful real estate agency, and Ian for being a friendly, reliable and supportive agent. Thanks to his continuous help we have the home of our dreams! We highly recommend choosing Harcourts and working with Ian Walkley.” Altynay Saudabayeva, Wakerley

“Ian was very easy to deal with so it was a smooth-sailing and happy purchase for us. He was very accommodating with arranging for us to view the property on multiple occasions and respectful and pleasant during the negotiation process. We really appreciated the way Ian kept us informed with details leading up to settlement and regarding the existing tenants’ departure. Thanks Ian.” Jodi & Dan Brown, Wakerley 

“I have found Ian very professional and pleasant to deal with in all aspects of buying, and definitely not like the typical stereotyped sales agent who would push houses to you that don’t fit the criteria you provide. He listens to your needs and allows you to make you own mind up without the normal hassle that is associated with buying property. I thoroughly recommend him to any seller.” Mark Green, Manly West
