About Us

In 1985, with a decade of motel brokerage in New Zealand already under his belt, Ian Crooks saw an opportunity in Australia. Never one to shy away from a challenge, he relocated his young family across The Tasman and established Resort Brokers Australia. At the time, Resort Brokers was the first agency to specialise in the marketing and sale of tourism and accommodation related businesses. Today, we are licensed in all States and Territories, employ over 25 specialist brokers nationwide and hold a firm position of industry leadership.

Resort Brokers Australia is proud to be a true family business. Although Ian still heads the company, and is as active as the day he started, the next generation plays an ever-increasing role. Ian's three children all work in the business; Trudy is our national sales manager, Carla is our marketing manager and Tim manages our off-the-plan division. Our long-standing team of brokers have grown to become a closely knit and highly cohesive group over the years. Today, they make up Resort Brokers' extended family.

Industry leadership is not just about high turnover. It is about contributing to the growth and stability of the industry that we work in. We are firm believers in the importance of honesty and integrity, and work to the mantra that 'we will never sell someone into a business that we cannot sell them out of'. It's not just about the next sale; it's about long-term relations and creating a win-win situation for all parties involved in a transaction. Whether you are looking to buy or sell a motel, management rights, caravan park, backpackers or resort, you can rely on Resort Brokers Australia for an unparalleled level of service and expertise.
