I have known Anna and Jeff from various networking circles for a few years and always found them to be professional and knowledgeable in their market. I contacted Anna when my wife and I were looking into getting a property and she arranged for Gareth to come to our house for an initial meet and greet.  He was able to answer every question and we left the meeting feeling very comfortable with him. We proceeded with Suburbanite and then we were contacted by the office admin staff and Jeff for a phone interview about the next step. It all went …

Phillip Raish

“Our experience was textbook perfect”
I can’t thank you enough for everything you’ve helped me achieve. This week I became the first person in my family to ever  buy property, and I truly owe it all to you. You guided me through what could have been an overwhelming process, making it seamless, and actually fun. Special thanks to Sam for being such a reliable source of calm and wisdom throughout the entire process. None of my questions were ever too big or too dumb, and for a true property newbie, that meant everything to me. I am so happy to have worked with your exceptional …


A Heartfelt Thank you
The best part was knowing that if I asked a dumb question, not only would you come back with a reassuring answer

Suburbanite Client

The service my husband and I received from Suburbanite was outstanding and far exceeded our expectations. From our first initial consultation with Anna until the day our property settled and afterwards the service we received from all of the Suburbanite team was consistently outstanding. The whole process was effortless and we felt completely supported throughout. The photos of our property looked amazing. We were fortunate enough to inspect our property just before settlement and once again the property exceeded our expectations. It was just beautiful. Every detail of the purchase was handled in a professional yet personable manner from the …

2x Proud Anonymous Suburbanite Clients

A quick note to say a huge thank you to you and your team for helping us to secure our first investment! We’ve had a fantastic experience with Suburbanite and will certainly be recommending your services to our friends and family. You have a fantastic network of people working alongside you from John Hosey at Funding Financial Freedom to Carrington Conveyancers, Gary J Smith and everyone in between. Our experience has been exciting and relatively stress free thanks in large part to Suburbanite’s hard work. We couldn’t have asked for a better end to 2017.


It’s really pleasing to see that Suburbanite is ahead of the game and that we chose you guys over other agencies who dismissed Adelaide.


“We could not fault the quality and friendly service provided by Suburbanite. The team were very professional, keeping us informed and offering advice throughout the duration of the process. We had full confidence in the recommendations made and expertise offered by Suburbanite. Thank you for making this experience of purchasing our first investment property seamless and stress free. We will not hesitate recommending to any family and friends”

Duncan & Penny

“Suburbanite were exceptional and can’t improve anywhere unless you actually paid for the house with no interest repayments, ha ha!”

Mitch Ermers

“Thank you for all your help.  You guy’s and girls have been great.  And I have been doing my best to increase your work load by promoting Suburbanite with family, friends and work colleagues.”

Nick Frost

“Just a quick note to thank you and your team for the swift work in the purchase of our first property…  Chris came through for us last night too.  After many hours of negotiations and a very stubborn seller we secured the property we wanted.  So all good in what was a very expensive day (purchasing 2 properties in one day!)  Thanks once again to Suburbanite.”

Michael Noglik

“Anna and the team at Suburbanite provide a thoroughly professional service that is of a high quality in all regards.  We particularly valued their excellent property knowledge and communication skills as they provided us with the assurance that our interests were being managed in a manner that could not be faulted.  We would not hesitate to use their service again and would happily recommend it to others.”

Carl and Julie

“Suburbanite acts with great integrity, responds to feedback productively and are able to make the process to purchasing property a smooth transition.  Answers questions and creates realistic expectations rather than inflated hype.  Thanks to the team!”

Jef Miles

Tristan Scifo

“Anna and her staff were understanding, diligent and thorough with their service and communication.  I would highly recommend the services of Suburbanite to anyone looking to purchase a property.  Thank you and I will contact you again for my future purchasing needs.”

Maguy Nakhil

“As you know the property settlement is tomorrow and I just wanted to let you know that the Property Manager already organised the tenancy and the new tenants are moving in on Friday on a 12 month rental agreement.  The weekly rental secured exceeds your initial estimate.  Thank you so much for all your efforts with the strategy, finding the property, doing negotiations, organising inspections, and much more.  I truly appreciated all the services you have provided throughout.  I could not believe how smooth everything went, really happy with the overall service.  I do plan and hope to get in …

Esin Dundar

“Thank you to Anna and her team for making my investment goals come true.  The service and experience was great as Anna made my feel confident that I was making all the right decisions.  Suburbanite made the whole process so easy and I will go back for my next investment.”

Joanne H

“I have used Anna from Suburbanite’s services to build my portfolio and have found her advice to be invaluable.  When I first met Anna, my wife and I already had a number of investment properties but we didn’t really have a plan or any defined investment goals.  Anna has been able to help us work out our goals and set up a strategic investment plan.  She has also put us on a path to setting up a self managed super fund and purchasing property in the fund.  This is something we hadn’t even considered in the past, and we now …

Karl Vegners

“When I decided I wanted to buy an investment property I found the options overwhelming.  I also have a busy work schedule and didn’t want to waste time looking at the wrong properties.  Anna narrowed down my options and made it easy for me to move forward.  The report she gave me had a clear strategy set out and the action plan and time frames for each stage, which kept me motivated and on track.  The service was excellent throughout the entire process and Anna’s depth of knowledge in property came through time and time again.

Renee Young

“Thanks to Suburbanite, I am well on my way to acquiring my first investment property. The team has been very helpful, keeping me informed throughout the whole process and committed to securing me the right property at the right price. They have been honest and transparent in providing information and I would thoroughly recommend Suburbanite to anyone.”

Glen Arena

“Professionalism, integrity and energy are the three words that immediately come to mind to describe my experience as a client of Anna and her team at Suburbanite. They take the emotion out of property investment and replace it with objectivity back by in-depth research and facts. I strongly recommend you consult them before your next property purchase.”

Mark Pinhorn

“I was thoroughly impressed by the professionalism of Anna Porter at Suburbanite. She made my house hunting in a restricted and well-defined area a pleasure instead of the ordeal I had anticipated. Were I ever to contemplate moving again, I would use Suburbanite’s services without hesitation.”
