STAFF PROFILE – IAN MORRISON
Ian Morrison, founder and principal of The Rental Man, and later, Caboolture Property Sales, is a dedicated, focused individual on the needs and services of property investors.
Ian began his career in the house/ land package industry with Dixon homes in the heady 1980’s, featuring in the H.I.A. display village concept.
With the industry in decline in 1984, Ian moved to a general real estate office environment, mentored by Graham Hogg at Rochedale, one of the founders of ‘The Professionals’ group.
Furthering his education by attending a business management degree at T.A.F.E., Ian’s work direction changed with a move to the property management division to expand his overall knowledge of the real estate industry.
Fast forward to 1992, where after a short succession of appointments over the preceding years, with the L.J Hooker and P.R.D. Realty groups (The latter where he developed an in-house training course in property management) Ian opened ‘The Rental Man’ in February.
He remembers well listening to the Australia Day Test match whilst gluing the carpet down in his newly secured 60 sqm office.
Over time, the client base grew as Ian’s proposal for a ‘specialist’ property management company took hold, and in 1994 he again increased his systematic approach by reviewing his methods to the ISO9002 quality assurance system. This identified what he and his staff actually do in a formatted, written form, and the policy and practise manuals created stand them in good stead to this day. It has been a strong, and at times difficult road to bring ‘The Rental Man’ to where it is today, but Ian’s dedication and focus has provided all his clients with the security of investment required in these modern, active times.
When he is not at the desk, or in the field, Ian spends his time working on his collection of fairly rare Italian motor-cycles, and racing one in particular in the Post-Classic and Historic Championships in Australia and New Zealand. He enjoys a good book, and relaxing with family.
But in reality, particularly enjoys knowing he can relax after a good week with a job well done.
