Ian Howcroft

Sales Manager

Ian Howcroft believes honesty and reliability are the key components to successful sales and happy clients. Ian started in the real estate industry in year 2000 and his love for the business drives him to strive for results and achieve outcomes that exceed customer expectations.

Having lived near the beach on the Sunshine Coast for 15 years it was a natural choice to specialise in homes close to the coast. With an excellent knowledge of the area and understanding of the local market combined with his constant success and experience, Ian inspires confidence for his clients. His pride and love of the region comes from having his family grow up in the area and Ian's huge involvement in local Surf Life Saving, Ocean Paddling and Rugby League Clubs.

Even though Ian has achieved many awards in the Real Estate industry from being named in the top 10 in sales in Australia to being an international key note speaker on real estate, he is always looking to improve his skills, broaden his knowledge, and best expose his clients’ properties both nationally and internationally. Ian believes LJ Hooker Mooloolaba helps him do just this! He prides himself on his consistent work ethic which results in a major part of his business being referral based from past clients. Ian is straight forward, determined and is dedicated to achieving the best price for his owners and finding the perfect home for his buyers.

Ian Howcroft from LJ Hooker Mooloolaba was very professional, a good communicator, with a polite demeanour during the sale of my house in Buderim. I would highly recommend Ian to potential buyers and sellers. He was great to deal with during the whole process.

Ian Howcroft is the ultimate professional with many years of experience and is always very pleasant to deal with. Ian is more than capable in his dealings with buyers and sellers alike to promote a sale with the least amount of stress during the entire process for all concerned, always achieving the best price possible. Another great quality of Ian is his honesty with regard to the sale of your property and what he is likely to achieve for you. He is also a strong communicator and will always keep you informed as to the status of your sale. I like his no nonsense approach so if you want someone who will be honest and upfront with you and always working for you to achieve the best outcome possible for the sale of your property, then look no further - I highly recommend Ian Howcroft.

Marie Kemp, Victoria Hill

Ian knows his market and clients well and constantly kept me updated. It always felt as if he had my best interest at heart. He is part of a really top class team from management down and all have excelled in both the care of the property both as a rental and also initiating a fast sale at a very good price.

Faye Flor, Ipswich

Ian Howcroft is a 10/10 salesperson. He always answered my calls and my neverending list of questions which meant he truly understood my personal circumstances and sale requirements. His knowledge of sales, the property market and sales within the area meant that he could deliver on all of his promises. To top it off, Ian NEVER tried to push me into a sale because he had over promised something he couldn't deliver. In fact, one of the great things about Ian was that he achieved a sale price far above what he promised. In fact, it was a sales price far above what any other salesperson had promised. With Ian, what you see is what you get. He gives you the information and parameters and works with you to find the best solution and sale price. Ian was a great choice and I would without a doubt use Ian to sell another property for me in the future.

We have previously dealt with Yasna, and so we were more than happy to put this Sale in her hands. Though the property may have been just out of the usual area, Yasna was happy to accept the challenge of selling this property. The listing was given to Ian Howcroft and we had ongoing conversations with Ian. We believed the price he was able to get was realistic and so we accepted his advice. We really couldn't expect any more from Ian than the FIRST CLASS; OUTSTANDING service he provided to us.

Rex & Janene Lobegeier Jamberoo NSW

Ian Howcroft was very professional in his approach and we felt a trust with him. He was always mindful of our position and very encouraging. Ian was very patient and kept our needs in mind all the time. He gave us confidence that all would be OK and it was. Based on the experience we had with selling, which can be a very stressful time, we would highly recommend Ian to friends in the same situation. He did everything he could to get us the best deal possible
