Ian has been great to work with. He has worked with me on buying and selling two houses. He is very knowledgeable about the market and is very aware of my needs both as a seller and a buyer. I’m looking forward to working with Ian again.

I worked with Ian Wood during my tenure as Director of Acquisitions for an institutionally funded investment firm buying single family homes along the Wasatch Front. Together with Ian, I evaluated hundreds of homes for potential investment.
I found Ian’s work ethic to be relentless and his integrity to be second to none. Ian worked to understand our objectives and investment criteria and regularly generated creative ideas that helped expand our pipeline.
In addition to developing creative tools to cull the MLS, Ian worked tirelessly to inspect prospective investments on my behalf. I depended heavily on Ian’s accuracy and attention to detail to ensure that all necessary property repairs were accounted for prior to purchasing any asset. Ian has a sound understanding of the costs associated with repairs and improvements.
Ian always put my needs ahead of his own. Several times Ian put me onto properties that were outside of the scope of his territory and ensured that I had adequate support from other agents. Moreover, Ian also knew when to tell me I was paying too much even if it meant killing a prospective deal. I quickly came to trust his candor and value his opinions immensely.
For these reasons and many others, it is without reservation that I recommend Ian Wood to anyone seeking a best in class real estate agent to help them with either buying or selling a home in Utah.

As a lender I know that when I have a transaction with Ian, his clients are in excellent, capable hands from start to finish. There are so many issues that could pop up in a purchase or sale transaction that Ian is prepared to handle with his knowledge and expertise. 5 stars for Ian Wood!

Ian is the best! He has sold 2 houses for us and represented us on two purchases. He knows the market better than anyone and every suggestion he has given us has been spot on around pricing, comparables, improvements, etc. He is not just a deal-by-deal broker but a partner and has helped us plan remodels to make sure we are getting the biggest bang for our buck at resell time. I will never use anyone else!

In addition to all the positive things my husband said, Ian also has a talent for listening to both of our needs and wants- my husband is always looking for a good financial investment and I am looking for details and style that fit my family. He has always been able to keep my vision for a home and our financial interests in perfect balance.

Ian is a great professional realtor. We purchased our first house and Ian made everything so easy for us! We didn’t have an issue and he helped us save so money! We will always use Ian for any future houses we plan on buying or selling.

Ian is the most professional and knowledgeable real estate agent in Salt Lake City. He was super helpful and patient with us while we went through the process of finding the perfect home. Highly recommend him!

Ian was an absolute fantastic agent to work with. He approached every situation with full knowledge and professionalism. Ian was not aggressive or assertive, just factual and realistic on each property I was interested in. Ian?s greatest benefit was his ability to explain and articulate all the ?lingo? of purchasing a home in a very understandable and comprehensible way. He encouraged me to make the best decision for myself, not for him to make the sale. The best part of my experience was that he worked around my schedule, made himself available, and met me for showings at my convenience. Although my purchase was a short-sale and extremely lengthy, Ian never got discouraged. He kept close communication with me, the selling agent, and everyone else involved in the sale creating positive relationships with each. I couldn?t be happier with the house I purchased, at the deal I got it at, and the experience I had as a whole, which I owe all to Ian. I will recommend him to everyone.

Ian is as professional as they come. I’ve bought and sold a house with Ian, as well as a land purchase. All three deals came together smoothly. If you are looking for a realtor that is going to get you the best deal and look out for your best interest, Ian is your guy.

In a word save me a lot of time and money, I would send him 5 to 10 questions on houses a night and would have my answers by 10 AM on what properties I should look at and what ones I should stay away from. Ian would just listen (a rare thing to find) and answers his phone an amazing 96% of the time. We could go and look at houses in a matter of an hour ( in most cases ) from when I would call him and know if we should move on a property and run away.
