IAM Property was established by Ian MacKinnon in 2011 when he consolidated his 20 plus years of experience in the Melbourne property and finance markets into a boutique buyers advocacy business.


Ian has worked in the Melbourne property industry since 1991. For over 20 years he has gained extensive experience in property management, property sales, mortgage brokering and buyer’s advocacy. Ian studied Accounting at Deakin University and throughout his career has maintained a commitment to gaining and maintaining his qualifications and industry memberships with MFAA and REIV.

In 2011 Ian and his wife made a sea change with their three young children to Mount Eliza on the Mornington Peninsula from Melbourne’s inner east. The move provided the perfect opportunity and timing for Ian to establish his own buyer’s advocacy business. Since then Ian has nurtured, developed and grown IAM Property. He has gained extensive experience and contacts in the local Mornington Peninsula property market while also maintaining, strengthening and building his experience and contacts within the broader Melbourne property market.

Ian personally has been an active investor in the Melbourne property market since he was 25 years old and is truly passionate about property and the real estate market. Ian’s other passion is his family. Ian is very involved in the local community through his childrens’ multitude participation in sporting clubs and the local primary school and he has coached several junior teams including footy, basketball and netball. Ian loves his little speed boat that he spends time in with his family as well as playing golf as a member of The Peninsula Country Golf Club.


As founder and owner of IAM Property Ian is available 7 days a week to discuss your property needs.


Client Testimonial:

“We engaged Ian to help us buying our new home. We had been out of the market for a few years and were not sure on how to go about the whole process. Ian was our Mortgage Broker and Buyers Advocate which was handy as it meant one less person to deal with and he understood our position completely. As a mortgage broker he helped us understand our options on the market which helped us select the best and cheapest mortgage for us and as our Buyers Advocate he understood our limits and helped us secure our dream home within these limits. We highly recommend Ian as both a Mortgage Broker and a Buyers Advocate; he is reliable, committed and we really enjoyed working with him.”
