I found Ian to be very professional and well organized. He showed us a variety of houses and found us our perfect home! Because we were from the mainland we had to lean on him to get our home inspection report and take possession of the home as we were unavailable. Ian went above and beyond and we are very thankful that he made this  a very positive experience. The first time we met Ian we knew we had found the realtor who would find us "the perfect home" 
We viewed a few, but by the end of the day we  had our heart set on Elk Trail. To top it off on the day we  moved in to our new home Ian's wife Rachael had  made up a welcome basket for us that I cannot say enough about! "Rachael that was so very thoughtful " thank you, thank you! We will surely recommend Ian ( and Rachael ) Warren to any future buyers or sellers.

Would like to take a moment to thank you for all you have done for our family. It is not often these days that you come across someone that is not only competent but professional and most important, empathetic. As you know, my mother had just come out hospital after almost dying. My father has dementia. These were trying circumstances to say the least. As a result it was only prudent to sell their home of 25 yrs. Given that dad is 86 and mom 85 this type of move is very unsettling to them. To add to the situation, the children (5) were not in Nanaimo but live in Vancouver.
This sale could have been very difficult but as a result of your services, it went without a hitch. Your team did an amazing job getting everything together. You were very quick to get the listing up and running. Your advice on pricing and the photography for the listing were perfect. Within days we had multiple offers and you were always on top of the situation. From start to finish you were quick to get get back to us with any questions and deal with all the details that are always part of a sale. You made it look so easy and were always considerate of my parents and kept them appraised of what was happening. Can’t say enough, thank you.
If you ever are looking for a referral or if anyone wishes to contact me directly please feel free to give them my contact info.
Again, thank you so much for all you have done.
Warmest regards from our entire family,
Kim Danielsen

Hi Ian,
Since we last spoke, we took your advice and checked out the Courtney and Comox area...and we LOVE it there!  We have found a property and have an accepted offer on it too.  I honestly never would of thought of that area if it were not for your suggestion.  So, thank you!
Thank you also for your willingness to step in to help us that day.  We truly appreciate all that you have so willingly shared and the effort you have gone to to help us realize our dream of becoming "islanders".
We will be sharing your name among all our friends, and friends of friends, should they be needing an excellent realtor in the Nanaimo and Parksville area.

"As first time home buyers, we were annoyingly keen on crossing everything off of the list. Not
only did Ian embrace our dream, but helped us to define those intangibles over many months that
made the house we ended up with perfect. If you are looking for someone who is attentive,
thorough, enthusiastic and stays with you to the very end, I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Ian
every time. We fully intend to use him again :)"
Thanks again for everything :)

"Ian Warren is hands-down the best realtor we’ve had!
Not only did Ian provide us with timely information that was aligned with our values and interest, he worked with us in every aspect of our home search and purchase. From crawling through crawl spaces to providing quotes from qualified professionals for home renovations and home services, Ian demonstrated to us the outstanding value only a dedicated and qualified realtor can provide.
Thank You Ian!"

Here is what I have to say . . .

I met Ian when I was looking at a condominium development he was connected with. While he was very informative about that particular development, he impressed me by discussing other options that would potentially be a better match for my goals and lifestyle.  During the search process, he regularly checked in with me without being at all pushy.  His communication was excellent with both myself and the other realtors involved.  Ian really excelled when it came time to make an offer and in reaching completion on the property I ultimately purchased.  His service didn't stop there. He was also prompt in following up on a couple of items post completion.  I would recommend Ian as a competent, caring and client-oriented realtor.

Thanks again for all of your assistance, Ian!

Warm regards,
Pam Vickars

"My husband and I just bought our first home, using Ian as our agent. Ian was so easy to work with, he really listened to us (mainly me J) and understood what we were wanting and needing, thus he was able to narrow the search on homes, and not waste our time on homes that didn't fit the criteria. He was also very accommodating and flexible with our schedule as I am a shift worker and my husband worked away 20 days a month.  He didn’t give up even on us, even though it sometimes would be nearly a month between looking at new homes for sale.

After a few months taking us to the many homes I wanted to see and the ones he suggested, we finally found our perfect home.  We are so happy, it's absolutely perfect. Along with helping us find the perfect home, he was also helpful in guiding us through the somewhat terrifying process of buying a house and was able to give us great tips along the way.  He even helped us get an even lower price then what we had initially offered!  We would most definitely use Ian again, and refer anyone looking for Real Estate to use his services! He Rocks!! "
