The commercial real estate industry caught Ian’s eye at a young age, which inspired him to get his salespersons license at the age of 19. Even before that, Ian made it his mission to focus on the basics of commercial real estate by working with veteran broker, Gregory Ozimec, learning important marketing tools to assist in driving tenants to properties owned by Industrial Brokers’ clients. Doing this made him realize that going into the commercial real estate industry was the right career path for him, because he genuinely enjoys helping business owners and landlords alike in choosing optimal real estate strategies.
Today, Ian uses his market research and sales training from Industrial Brokers & Voit Real Estate Services coupled with his education in finance and real estate to assist in crucial decision making and to provide leading CRE solutions curated specifically for his clients. Ian’s dedication to both sourcing new clients and loyalty to our current relationships in the Orange County market makes him a highly valued team member here at Industrial Brokers. A combination of reliability and resourcefulness to service a wide spectrum of clients’ needs makes him the perfect person to work with for tenant & landlord representation. Ian has also published an undergraduate honors thesis on Industrial Real Estate Markets & The Expansion of E-Commerce.
