Igor’s story is one of perseverance and hope. His family emigrated from former Yugoslavia in the early nineties. As refugees of a civil war, they settled into Adelaide with little more than the clothes on their backs. With their previous lives a painful memory and their skills and experience not being recognised in their new homeland, Igor’s parents took to working with anyone who would give them a chance. Through decades of hard work and discipline, they managed to retrain themselves and return to the fields in which they worked before the war. Eventually, once again becoming home owners, investors and valued members of the community.
Through their shared experience they instilled a sense of discipline, honesty and gratitude into Igor.
Starting his Real Estate career, Igor did the actions that other agents would not. He got on the phones and talked to prospective clients endlessly. He went out to the suburbs to meet the home owners at their doorstep, dealt with rejection and worked until the work was done. With a solid grounding in the real estate basics, Igor has aligned himself with Turner Real Estate to take advantage of the best systems and professional working environment in todays market. When handling a sellers biggest financial asset, this impressive combination is difficult to rival.
Igor has a passion and honesty in his work that is immediately evident to his clients. No follow up call is too early and no inspection is too late. Exceptional results require outstanding effort and Igor is prepared to go the extra mile, whatever the situation may be. Choose Igor as your agent and you get an all day, all night, all access pass to his efforts.
Every home and every sale is different, there is no one size fits all approach that will bring the highest prices. Working with his vendors best interests at heart, Igor brings a single-minded approach to achieving this highest price. ‘What needs to get done, will be done’ says Igor.
Personable, approachable and honest. Whatever your real estate needs, contact Igor.

Born in Hindmarsh, I lived my earlier life in Birkenhead and Croydon, then had a stint at Murray Bridge before moving to Mount Barker, where we have raised three delightful children, now all adults ranging in ages from 31-38.
I have loved being a part of the Mount Barker Community since 1977 and consider having had a significant impact on the area.
I have really enjoyed volunteer working for various organisations, including Baptist Union State Executive (7 years), Pembroke School Trustees Board (4 years), Cornerstone College (11 years as Chair), and Retirement Village for profit and non-profit sectors relevant industry organisations.
My professional career has led me through the lively television industry – my first week on the job seeing the world-wide moon landing video feeds in 1969, to the fully operating tv studio live productions, and the sad transition to relay stations for the other states. In 1986 I co-designed, built and managed a major retirement complex in McLaren Vale setting new standards. In 1997 I grew a group of 2 to 4 franchised real estate offices; then having done enough commuting and working away from the place I slept for 23 years – in 2000 I decided to take a break and seek local work.
That was the beginning of my current passion and career, commencing with Sales of Dalmeny Park, followed by Bluestone and Aston Hills estates in Mount Barker and Pathways, Murray Bridge to name the majors.
Now I embark on a new venture, utilising my experience and expertise to assist other investor / developer groups achieve their goals, and help buyers by providing the information required to assist in buying land and building – making the process as smooth as it can be.
Adelaide Hills Real Estate, being a smaller independent “family” agent is the perfect setting for me to springboard into new ventures and relationships.
