Ian is a Sales Associate with Mountain Luxury Properties and has sold over $65,000,000 in gross sales since 2015. With a diverse real estate background, his expertise is not limited to selling lakefront and luxury properties in Lake Tahoe. He is also an Executive Partner with Team Tahoe Commercial; the #1 commercial real estate team in North Lake Tahoe. Team Tahoe Commercial has transacted the great majority of commercial buildings and lodging opportunities since 1985. To round out Ian’s extensive experience, he is also the founder of the investment company Reno Tahoe House Partners.
The start of Ian’s love affair with the mountains of Lake Tahoe began in 2003 while on vacation in South Lake Tahoe. He was serendipitously caught in a major snowstorm which blocked him from returning to his previous home in Southern California, and opened up his adventurous lifestyle in the Sierras. Snowboarding, mountain biking, and climbing are his outdoor passions, which he enjoys doing alongside his wife Anna and his Mexican rescue pup; Carlitos.
Ian’s services are for people who want local knowledge and insight. Tahoe real estate is highly coveted where local agencies and environmental institutions serve as gatekeepers by way of highly restrictive measures. Additionally, Tahoe real estate is highly nuanced, demonstrated by neighboring properties often having vastly different values. Ian’s devotion to comprehending and conveying the idiosyncrasies of these hurdles are what his clients appreciate most about him. Navigating these roadblocks is what can make or break the buying, selling, or investing experience in Lake Tahoe.

“Ian is a pro – he knows Tahoe inside and out and understands the market dynamics, block-by-block. He works relentlessly and was amazing during the process. My wife and I have bought a few properties and without a doubt, our best experience was with Ian.” – Ben Moglen
“Ian was unbelievable to work with. He has integrity, is honest and does not sugar coat anything. Very straightforward. Extremely organized and is a stickler for details. He went beyond the ordinary to assist us in every way possible. I would 100% recommend Ian to any friend or family member. He was truly fantastic to work with and make the stressful process of acquiring real estate much easier than usual.” – Joey Cannatta
“Ian really delivered true value to us at every step of the process. Looking forward to working with him again soon. He is a rare find in real estate. By being us with both pricing and finding a steady flow of interested buyers Ian got our property sold in what was not an easy sellers market. He saw the value in our property and against the wishes of his higher ups, he recommended that we not break price and we finally sold at very close to our asking level.” – Andrew Henry
“Not only was Ian very responsive, he brought us the ideal property before it hit the market and was able to sell another of ours within 3 days of listing in a community that had over 20 properties for sale. We would highly recommend working with Ian.” – Aaron Moatz
