“When we took the decision to come to Perth from South America, knowing that we will have an Orientation Services really relaxed us!

We started our communication with Sue Pember a couple of months before we landed into Perth in August 2010 and she was very helpful and supportive by giving us all the information and answers we had via e-mail prior to our arrival: houses, day cares, rental information, shops, and even weather! It was very nice having Sue at Perth airport waiting for us, we felt we are not alone!

She helped us know our way around in Perth and even open a bank account. Sue is very friendly, and still now when we need any advice, no worries!! Sue will help us... Thank you so much!!!”

 “When we decided to move from South Australia to Western Australia one our greatest concerns were finding accommodation that suited us and our family needs. Engaging Sue Pember was the best thing we could have done. We began to gain some local insight from a local person regarding where to live, where the best value for money was within our budget.

Sue from Perth Orientation services met with us and took an initial assessment to see what our needs were, from there she searched tirelessly for a property to suit our needs. Her background in real estate helped us with sourcing the best property for our family and negotiating a lease with the real estate company that was financially beneficial for us.

Sue also considered our transport arrangements to and from work. The results were fantastic. We moved into our house on the exact day we needed to, the contracts had all been negotiated for us and were waiting for our signatures. It couldn’t have been easier.

Sue’s local knowledge of Perth put us onto the best local facilities and activities to do as a family which helped us to settle in quickly. We are very grateful for the service this company provides and made the transition to a new state quick and easy for us.”

“We arrived in Perth during April 2010. After viewing a few houses on my own, being disappointed every time and getting down-in-the dumps about the house-hunting thing, I was fortunate to hear about Sue and the help she could offer me.

Within two days Sue arranged to meet with me and I had the opportunity to explain the urgency of the matter and what I was looking for in a house. Sue’s warm and friendly personality makes it easy to explain what you want and then she immediately determines which houses will be worth it to view.

Although she was fully booked with other clients and could not view every house I was interested in with me, she cared enough to frequently send me addresses and pictures of houses which she thought I might be interested in. Via e-mail she kept contact and supported me until I found a house.

Sue met my husband only once, but in our house, we consider Sue as a friend and not just someone who helped us house-hunting. Many thanx Sue!!”

“We have visited and lived in many countries, but we have never found or got services like Perth Orientation Services. They are very professional, precise and prompt in their service. In one week we felt we are already settled in Perth. From finding an apartment to tax administration to the right grocery shop, day-care and for good eating out places every information is given to us. Sue and Anne are very good, and we are very satisfied with their services. Cannot ask for more. Thanks for everything.”

“When we initially decided to move to Perth from the UK, we were very excited but anxious by the thought of doing it! We really didn’t know where to begin, there was so much to do and think about.

We were introduced to Sue Pember six months before we landed into Perth in July 2010 and she put us at ease by giving us informative e-mail support prior to our arrival. This really reduced our anxiety and we were so glad we had Sue to help us organise ourselves regarding the big move!

Sue made the move to a new country so much easier. Sue made the move to a new country so much easier. Within a few days we had bought cars, found a lovely home to rent and settled into Australian life so quickly. Sue is very friendly, caring and a wonderful lady who we would recommend to anyone moving to Perth. We are so grateful for all the support and reassurance she has given us and continues to do so. Thank you so much!!!”

“Our family moved from Sydney to Perth in June 2010. Prior to us relocating Sue from POS (Perth Orientation Services) discussed all our specific family and individual needs and offered advice to us based upon our initial thoughts and requirements. Sue’s experience in Real Estate and her professionalism meant that within a few days of arriving we had located and secured a house that met our needs (and budget) in the catchment area of a specific school.

Her local knowledge has enabled us to relocate and to settle with as minimal disruption to our family as possible and our two sons particularly enjoy all the great parks that Perth has to offer that Sue has directed us too.

We found POS (Perth Orientation Services) to be very professional and very personal company, who listened to our specific needs and focused on delivering these in a very timely and proficient manner. We would recommend Sue to any family or individual considering the move to the Perth area.”

“When Leighton Contractors asked me to move from the UK to Perth, to be their Construction Manager for the Gorgon Jetty Project, I was not so much worried about the job but more so the prospect of finding houses, cars and all that’s goes with upping sticks and moving to a new Country, it seemed daunting, don’t worry the company said we will appoint a Relocation agent to look after you. I was initially sceptical but 10 minutes after meeting Sue Pember my mind was at ease. I must confess to have been a difficult and fussy customer, looking at every option under the sun as is my nature, before deciding.

Sue Pember and Perth Orientation Services were patient, understanding and made me feel very welcome, nothing seemed to be too much trouble. After getting to know me they were quickly able to advise type of property, rent / buy options, locations and much more that best suited me and my family’s needs.

They were also able to assist in setting up bank account, finding cars, financial services, basically all I needed. Eventually even I have managed to relocate and its mainly due to the efforts of my first Australian friend – Sue Pember. I have no hesitation what so ever recommending their services to other imports such as myself or Companies wishing that; after all they have expended in recruiting staff that they settle and stay with them.”

“Further to our conversation today and as a way of introduction I have copied Sue Pember the director of Perth Orientation Services into this correspondence. To reiterate; after unsuccessfully securing a home ourselves, we undertook the services of Perth Orientation Services through a recommendation. As you are aware the rental market is particularly competitive at present and we were having several problems in securing a place despite having the assistance of a relocation consultant. 

Within three hours of engaging Sue, I received several e-mails with potential properties and other useful information. We then met the following morning where she gave me a very comprehensive analysis of the property market in Perth and other relevant documentation. She is extremely professional and personable and made me feel at ease in the assurance that we would find a great home. Throughout that day and night, she sent texts and e-mails with further properties and invitations to events with other families who have also recently arrived in Perth. Within 48 hours we had signed a lease to a great property and we are extremely happy. 

Both Richard and I very grateful to Sue and her company for assisting us in securing a property and would have no issues in recommending her to any new arrivals to Perth. I am more than happy to send you a separate e-mail outlining our discussions of today if necessary.”

“Perth Orientation Services provides a phenomenal service to anyone relocating to Perth. My partner and I moved to Perth, from Canada, at the end of November 2010 and where amazed to see how fierce the rental and accommodation market is. Upon our arrival Sue showed us around the city, and we began discussing our needs and wants. Sue is extremely knowledgeable about Perth and could answer, without bias, virtually any question we had, day or night, weekday or weekend. Perth Orientation Services has your best interest in mind and will simplify your transition from anywhere.

Sue is very well respected in the Relocation / Orientation Business Community and has a great working relationship with Short Stay Accommodations and Property Managers throughout the city. Sue is a genuine person who has a great personality and will earn your trust and respect within minutes. I would not hesitate to recommend Perth Orientation Services and can be contacted directly if needed.”

“It’s a pleasure to work with Sue. She is one of those rare people who does things not because she must, but rather out of deep-seated selflessness and generosity of spirit. It’s obvious that she is keen to show people the best part of her city and to make the process of relocation as painless as possible. I was very impressed by the small (and not-so-small) and very helpful details she looked after throughout my move. Sue is a genuinely nice person as well, and from the moment she arrived to pick me up at the airport at 3am, I have been consistently impressed by her knowledge of Perth and her considerate nature. Thanks for everything!”

“Sue helped me settle into my new job in Perth, Australia by being extremely helpful, insightful and knowledgeable about the cities social and economic situation, the housing market and everything else I needed to know in order to help me, and my wife, settle down quickly and trouble free.

I would highly recommend Sue’s services as she is a tiresome and studious worker with a huge personality, but most of all she is a great person to know, and I couldn’t think of a better person to welcome you to these shores”

“When the excitement of moving to Australia settled down our concerns raised regarding how we were going to do it. Luckily Perth Orientation Services were waiting in the wings and were deployed to help unravel what lay ahead. After a brief visit to Perth and meeting Pam and Sue they started their search for property and schools to meet our requirements. The information we received was excellent and helpful choosing a location to stay in Perth along with all the other sundry items that needs sorting out. 

Pam met us at the airport on arrival and spent a lot of time showing us around and helped us settle in, nothing was a problem day or night. The service was excellent in all ways and Sue and Pam have become family friends.”

“As a real estate company specialising in executive property management our business revolves around providing executive property rentals for relocating clients. I have had on many occasions to deal with relocation agents within the Perth market and found Sue Pember from Perth Orientation Services to be one of the most professional and effective operators.

Sue has a solid network of contacts within the real estate industry which gives her an edge in securing property. She has a distinct advantage in sourcing property which is not publicly advertised due to her network of contacts and good rapport with real estate agents in the industry. I personally afford Sue and her clients preference in dealings and send new property details to Sue before they are publicly advertised.

Apart from this Sue has a great knowledge of the executive leasing industry and offers great negotiation skills and guidance to her clients. I recommend Sue and Perth Orientation Services to anyone in need of relocation services.”

“When GE Oil & Gas transferred me to Perth I was a bit worried on how I would be able to get a suitable home and settle in especially knowing that my wife and I just had our first child, and I had to start work even before arriving.

When I first met Sue I felt very relaxed not only because she has a warm character but because the first thing she said to me is that “don’t worry Ali I will look after your wife and baby and take them around and show them houses and everything while you do your work” that for me or I guess for any Project Manager is words from heaven.

For me and my family Perth Orientation Services are not just a company helping you find a suitable accommodation but Sue and her team put in the personal touch and become like family, she looked after my wife and baby as if she was family and not only showed us homes but also helped my wife with finding suitable things for our baby.

I have and will continue to recommend Sue Pember to anyone who needs a helping hand when relocating to Australia. My family and I would to thank you and your services for helping us settle and get the home we wanted with the great view as well.”

“Sue is an expert in the Perth real estate market. She got to understand my personal need before doing the research in the market, took me to properties as soon as they became available, and closely followed up with the real estate agent on application progress. With her help, I was able to secure a nice apartment within my budget.

She has also helped me with other relocation needs, such as transferring my driver’s license to WA, providing supports with local knowledge. Her personalized assistance has made the relocation process much easier on my end.
I would highly recommend POS to people who are new to Perth/Australia, which will be a great experience to start a new life.”

“Our family has lived in various locations outside the US for 20 years. We had never seen a hot rental market like Perth, where property managers often didn’t return phone calls, using text messages to advise properties had already been rented. We were working full time to schedule and view even one property per working day. Our first and second applications failed against multiple applicants.

Then came Sue and company. Sue got us multiple property viewings per day. The properties were more suitable for us. For the first time we were seeing homes we could imagine living in. 
Sue’s knowledge and contacts in the industry were invaluable. Sue also advised us what additional documents could be used to improve acceptance during the application process, then followed up on the applications for us. We moved in to a house we love, within our company’s relocation time limit.”
