Prior to founding Commercial Brokers, Ian had six successful years at Bayleys Commercial on the North Shore of Auckland and over 20 years’ experience overseas in London, Dubai, and South Africa.

Ian has built a level of trust and reputation with his clients who often seek out his advice, not only for his unparalleled professional track record and high ethical standards but for being an honest, hard-working broker who does absolutely everything in his power to ensure his client’s success.

A wealth of experience, adding value to Landlord assets through the negotiation of long-term leases and rent review structures. Ian has been instrumental in over 200 deals throughout Auckland over the past six years - achieving maximum rentals and sales prices for his clients.


" I have known Ian Waddams for the past 5 years in which time he has been involved in brokerage, investment sales and leasing of commercial real estate.


During this time in a very challenging market, Ian has been very successful in leasing and selling several of our commercial buildings. 


Ian has always shown empathy, kept me fully informed in both the market

situation and any related queries.


He has always worked in my best interest, showing professionalism, total trust and to boot, been a pleasure to work with. Therefore, without hesitation I would recommend Ian in all aspects of his Real Estate profession. "

John Eaton – Commercial Real Estate Investor 


I have worked with Matt & Ian on the sale of several commercial properties over the past 6 months with exceptional results.


Both Matt and Ian delivered a professional marketing campaign and presented the property in the best way possible while keeping me updated and informed on all levels of interest.

A proactive approach in a challenging environment.

I would have no hesitation in recommending Matt & Ian to anyone looking to sell a commercial property

on the North Shore.
