Ian Ugarte – Small is the New Big - Australia
Most Innovative Real Estate Investment Specialists 2020 - Australia & BUILD Excellence Award for Housing Affordability Social Initiatives 2020
Property expert, Ian Ugarte disrupts the property market through adaptable housing strategies and existing policies that enable homes to stretch and contract based on the needs of residents and renters, whilst providing mum and dad landlords with properties that don’t cause additional financial strain.
A qualified Builder, Plumber & Educator, Ian combines a more intelligent use of space with flexible floorplans, creating essential components of ‘community’ for residents.
Ian challenges existing mindsets and the love affair with ‘McMansions’ that are mass produced and create mass division in society.
His maxim: “It has to make (community) sense before it makes dollars.”
