Ian Porter grew up listening to agent-talk his entire life with a mother and grandmother in the real estate business. After college and a brief stint in the tech industry, Ian pursued a career as a residential appraiser, becoming the Chief Appraiser of his own appraisal business in 2003. In 2009, Ian partnered with Dustin Van Wyck, founding VWP Real Estate. His experience in appraising, short sales, land development, and residential housing has poised a successful career in real estate.

VWP expanded quickly from its humble beginnings in 2009, and Ian soon became an innovator and thought leader in the Seattle real estate market. Bringing his expertise in land valuation, he often helps guide other agents interested in sourcing land for developers and all the nuances these types of deals can bring. He is now considered by many to be one of the foremost experts in revitalization and land development. With his many connections to large developers, he can often bring inside information on new homes weeks or months before they hit the market. This information drives value for his clients by creating an inside track to find the home of their dreams.

Ian and the VWP team have become the #1 team (of 7000+ teams) in residential transactions for Windermere and the #1 land acquisition team in all of King County. Ian’s expertise and unparalleled attention to detail in every transaction continue to ensure success for his residential clients and many of the largest land developers in the area.
