About Me

Ian has worked successfully in the real estate profession since 1988. He has achieved extraordinary results for his clients and has won many sales and marketing awards during that time.

Ian has been selling local properties for Ray White since 2000 and is highly regarded     throughout the Adelaide Hills and plains.

He is a registered land agent and manager.

From 2000 - 2005 Ian managed the first Ray White office to be established in the Adelaide Hills. His Stirling office 'broke ground' by building the Ray White name throughout the Hills and surrounding areas.

Prior to adopting real estate as his career in 1988, Ian worked as a teacher in a variety of teaching positions ranging from primary to adult (T.A.F.E)

Ian and his family live locally in Aldgate. They are actively involved in local sporting groups as well as school and church communities.

As most people only require assistance to sell their homes once or twice in a lifetime, Ian is fully aware of how important it is to be presenting the right advice.

He offers long-term proven sales performance, experience and integrity...and he cares about your special needs and circumstances.

Ian is recognized for his professionalism, high level of service and most importantly his excellent results and commitment to clients.

"From then....to now."

According to historians Aldgate was named by Richard Hawkins around 1864. The name was taken from one of London's seven historic gates, built during Roman times.
Hawkins had opened up a wayside inn to cater for travellers passing through to the Echunga gold-diggings in 1852. He installed a pump outside the Inn to encourage as many visitors (and their animals) as possible to stop for a drink.
Around 1860 he built the stone hotel which became widely known as "The Pump" and the area developed as a small rural settlement.
The Hills Land & Investment Co surveyed & laid out the township in 1882 and the railway station was built in 1883.
Many of the streets of Aldgate were named after London streets (e.g. Fenchurch, Oxford, Euston & Edgeware) and English counties (e.g. Somerset, Surrey, Kent & Suffolk).

Whilst the original pump has been relocated from the centre of the road to a nearby footpath, the lovely old buildings remain. Built along the banks of the Aldgate creek, the "Village" has retained its country town atmosphere and is a favourite destination for visitors to the Adelaide Hills.

Aldgate is a wonderful area in which to live. It still has that ‘small town’ feel, with good community spirit & local sporting teams, yet is broad enough to hide away if you want. The area has excellent local services, interesting specialty shops, cafes, and of course a great local pub. All of this and it’s only around 20 minutes or so from the CBD of Adelaide.

Then of course there’s Aldgate in autumn. Even more beautiful!
It’s no wonder that people from the ‘plains’ do Sunday drives.

"It feels like country but ........."

I think that this is one of the most interesting roads in the Adelaide Hills. It passes through a lovely valley, is naturally tree-lined and meanders through a mixture of small fields, gardens and interesting homes. All this and so close to everything.
Pros
  • Rural feel
  • Lovely walks.
Cons
  • It's easy to get a bit lost until you know your way around.

"Hidden away above the village."

It loops around the hill joining Ludgate Hill Road, I like it because it is mostly used by the people who live there. Not much traffic. The secret is the walking path that takes you down to Main Street in only a couple of minutes. So handy!
Pros
  • Privacy, peace & quiet.
  • Some good views.
Cons
  • It's a bit narrow in places. Hard to find a park. Typical of the area really.
