The Oliver Atlanta origin story
I’ve long been a proponent of exceptional customer experiences; in case you haven’t noticed, these experiences are more difficult to find today than ever before. For the last 17 years I have dedicated myself to creating best-in-class customer experiences, in doing so, I’ve personally placed over 5000 renters into the perfect place to call home across Metro Atlanta. As the Online Sales Director of the largest apartment locating service in the Southeast, innovation, guiding and advising at scale was the platform to my success.
Marrying people and housing is my passion. Buying and selling is my business. This process can be emotional, sometimes intimidating; especially to a first time home buyer. My customer’s needs mean everything to me. I listen carefully, and will guide you sincerely. I make myself available at all times, I have a reputation for remarkable response rates.
My knowledge of Atlanta is vast, immersing myself with the lifestyle and culture of the city is not only my job, but it’s what I love to do. Smart counsel on market conditions, value, and trends is an essential part of my service offering; including appropriate negotiation strategies, you’ll appreciate that part.
I don’t walk this journey alone. In partnership with PalmerHouse Properties, one of the leading real estate brokerages, I will deliver superior marketing tools, listing syndication, and a sound contractual platform that allows me to fully serve all your needs. I am proud to have the support of PalmerHouse Properties and my experienced brokers. They’re all rock stars!
I work relentlessly, I listen, and I have your back. Join me, I am ready to help.
Who is Ian Oliver?
I was born in Manchester, England and grew up in a seaside town in North Wales! I was fortunate to be raised in a beautiful part of the United Kingdom. Lucky boy! My competitive nature was fostered early as a successful cross country and track and field athlete. After running nationally for Wales on many occasions I was recruited to America on a track and field scholarship. I accepted the opportunity with open arms.
My American journey began in 1995. After a two year stint in a small town in Kansas (an authentic Midwest experience), I eventually transitioned to Stephen F Austin State University in Nacogdoches, Texas (pine trees and hot days); as a scholarship track athlete that climate took a toll. I graduated with a degree in Business Administration and Kinesiology. Upon graduation I considered a move back to the UK, but decided against this and took a chance on moving to Atlanta for a sales position. This decision ultimately led me to the career path I am immersed in today, and was the true catalyst for my personal and professional growth.
The relocation to Atlanta landed me with PROMOVE – The Apartment Source. My 18 years of experience as their Online Sales Director positioned me perfectly for my Atlanta Real Estate career. I’ve fostered thousands of relationships with renters and professionals in the apartment industry, and developed a broad and detailed knowledge of Atlanta as a city and her living and lifestyle opportunities.
These lifestyle opportunities have accommodated my ever growing passion and palate for food and wine, the culinary options in Atlanta are exciting! While I work wherever I go, domestic and international travel is also important to me; hotels fascinate me, especially historic and boutique spots! Short trips work best since I don’t like leaving our city for long. Too much to do!
People, homes, relationships, lifestyles, laughter and Atlanta. These are my passions. Creating first class buying and selling experiences are my objectives.
That’s a little about me. Now I want to learn about you, let’s buy and/or sell your home and have many laughs along the way!
