"Ian helped us find a center city home in record time. We were very impressed with his consultative approach. He asked great questions to help all of us understand our preferences. He introduced methods and tools to help us compare the homes we looked at (for example, cost per square foot, plus a cost estimator for improvements, compared to estimated market value post improvements, etc.). Post the offer, he made some creative suggestions that helped bring the deal to closure, that would have otherwise been “deal killers”. He was always available, even on short notice, and was a pleasure to work with. I highly recommend Ian for all buyers ranging from the sophisticated investor as well as the first time home buyer. We have another property that we will be listing next year and he will certainly get our business."

"Ian brings enthusiasm and new, creative ideas to his work. He is very dependable and is a pleasure to work with. Ian always makes it work with everyone involved, and with real estate, there are always a lot of people involved. He thinks out of the box and gets great results. I would recommend him to anyone interested in buying or selling real estate."

"I think that Ian is a great agent. He is wonderful to work with – personable, friendly, funny, and all-around nice guy.

"I could not imagine my home buying experience in Philadelphia without the expertise and professionalism of my real estate agent, Ian. He is extremely knowledgeable about the home buying process, and he walked me through every step with courtesy and patience. Ian found an apartment that is absolutely perfect for me, and he helped to make this experience less stressful and more enjoyable! I would highly recommend Ian and Star Real Estate Group if you want to find your dream home!"
– Sarah C., Buyer
"Ian is truly a gem of a real estate agent! He walked me through every bit of the home buying process. I was terrified to be a first time homeowner but he made the whole process easy to understand. Even when we hit some bumps on the financial road, Ian already had backup ideas in place to make sure I wasn’t left dangling with financial uncertainty. He made sure that every aspect of home buying went smoothly including locating the right home inspectors and recommending electricians. Post-home buying he even checked up on me and how I was doing and helped me where he could–including caulking my bathroom! He truly consistently goes above and beyond the call of real estate duty, adjusting his schedule to my needs and making sure I was in a good place every step of the way. He was professional throughout the entire process, listened to your needs, prompt, consistently on top of paperwork, and made you as a client feel like you were in good hands. I can’t think of anybody else I would’ve loved to work with!"
