Background & Experience
Ian is a disciplined commercial real estate broker with more than 30 years of experience conceiving, selling, leasing and executing commercial real estate transactions.
A pioneer in the “creative office space” market in Los Angeles since 1988, Ian led several of the first, highly successful “creative office space” projects and warehouse conversions in Santa Monica, Los Angeles and Culver City working with world class-architects such as Frank Gehry and Eric Owen Moss.
To differentiate a conventional office from a more creative office design, he coined the term “creative office space” and had the foresight to register the domain name rights in 1999.
Ian has worked on more than 2 million square feet of value added projects focused on converting older-obsolete warehouse and office buildings to unique functional office space. In addition, he represents film, media and technology tenants in their search for space, advising them in all aspects of lease negotiations and financial analysis.
An expert negotiator, Ian has successfully consummated a countless number of complex real estate transactions that required his deep market knowledge and experienced problem-solving skills.
