Sotheby's Mayne Island Real Estate with Ian Watt

Welcome to Ian Watt's Mayne Island Real Estate with Kathie Warning of RE/MAX Mayne-Pender. Ian Watt's is dedicated to showcasing the Southern Gulf Island’s most unique waterfront homes - one of a kind hilltop estates, weekend cabins, manicured hobby farms and untouched acreages. 

In the past, and as long as Real Estate agents have been selling on Mayne Island, the key to their success has been exposure.  This was traditionally done through the MLS and through print media. However, for the past decade, real estate exposure has shifted away from print advertising to the web and social media platforms, such as YouTube and Facebook. 

Yes, the real estate business has changed significantly and the reality is, very few Mayne Island real estate sales start on the Island - they start on the web. Furthermore, very few Mayne Island property sales are purchased by people who are actually from Mayne Island. Most buyers come from Greater Vancouver, Vancouver Island, Washington State and beyond. Therefore, the question you need to ask yourself is, "which realtors are going to expose my property to the most potential qualified buyers?"

Seeing this shift in real estate, in 2017, RE/MAX Mayne-Pender legend Kathie Warning, joined forces with Ian Watt of Sotheby’s International Realty Canada, to co-list all of her Mayne Island real estate listings increasing off-Island exposure.  Ian’s web presence and social media exposure brings in over 1.5 million page loads per year which equates to over 4000 page loads per day or 200 page loads per hour on his websites. This new team of tech-savvy exposure, coupled with local on-the-ground experience, is unparalleled for Mayne Island real estate.
