About Us

Yorke Peninsula is a rapidly growing area located west of Adelaide. Shaped like a leg and foot the narrow Peninsula extends about 160km south from Port Wakefield. The Gulf St. Vincent separates the Peninsula from Adelaide with a distance of about 70km over water from Adelaide to Port Vincent, Stansbury & Edithburgh.

The region is well known as a reliable farming, cropping and grazing area, which produces a large percentage of Australia’s premium malting barley. More recently the area has become a strong tourist destination with families visiting during summer and the ‘grey nomads’ out of school holidays.

The Southern Yorke Peninsula is characterised by small, pretty coastal townships and holiday settlements which are serviced by Minlaton and Yorketown for retail, commercial and medical services.

Yorke Peninsula Real Estate
We are a new brand launched in May 2009 which is 100% focused on real estate 363 days a year.  Principal Kym Stanitzki and his wife Karen came to the area in April 1989 for an anticipated 12 to 18 months.

Kym Stanitzki
Kym was a real estate salesman for a national brand until 1993 when he and Karen opened a franchised real estate office. With over 15 years of successful trading which included numerous state sales awards we decided to  launch Yorke Peninsula Real Estate in 2009  to offer clients a premium service combined with honest, country values.  As an independent brand, we are able to access new technologies and products without restrictions.

Snapshot of the real estate market
Our market over the past 15 years has been driven by 'baby boomers', the 50 plus year age group, which up to 2011 accounted for as much as 80 to 90% of our purchasers.

Of our total sales, over 90% of purchasers are from the Adelaide metropolitan area, so our advertising has a city focus.

Our Philosophy
We will provide you with honest, country advice. The only thing we may embellish is the size of the fish we catch. Kym may one day catch that 6’ whiting he goes on about.
Over 80% of our business is from repeat customers or referrals.

We love our vocation on sunny Yorke Peninsula.
