Lifestyle properties are a specialised area of the real estate market. Bayleys professional Ian Buchanan is a highly respected agent with a proven reputation for achieving the best outcome for his clients when selling their lifestyle property. His many years of experience means Ian can offer unparalleled expertise regarding the lifestyle property market in the Auckland region. He knows what people want when looking to purchase a lifestyle property and how to identify each property’s unique point of difference to best present it to the market for the ultimate result. Ian understands that in rural areas everything is about connections and in the course of his long career he has built up an all-important network of relationships that allow him to help his clients realize their goals in the sale of their properties.
Born in Wales in the UK, Ian first discovered the pleasures of rural life when his parents moved to Jersey in the Channel Islands. Barefoot rugby on the beach over that side of the world provided a good introduction to the Kiwi lifestyle when he moved to New Zealand in 1987. Following a very successful 30-year career in building, project management and ownership of his own high profile commercial interiors company in Auckland, Ian realised that his skills in sales and marketing were a perfect fit for real estate. Now many years later his numerous satisfied real estate clients testify to the fact that Ian is the consummate professional: honest, hardworking, driven, astute and most of all an absolute pleasure to deal with.
Outside of work Ian hugely enjoys getting away from the hustle and bustle of life indulging in activities such as fly-fishing and mountain biking. He also likes to spend time on his motorcycle, is involved with the Bombay Tennis Club and continues to be a long-time supporter of the Auckland Westpac Rescue Helicopter.
Ian is known for leaving no stone unturned in his efforts to obtain a premium for his client’s property, providing his signature exemplary customer service along the way. Although executive lifestyle properties are Ian’s specialty, he is also happy to assist his clients with all forms of lifestyle and select executive residential property when requested.
