Melissa Bussenschutt

Director, Ray White Yorke Peninsula

Enthusiastic and warm Melissa is passionate about living and working in the Copper Coast.

Originally a nurse for around 20 years, Melissa says that her move into the real estate sector was prompted by her wish to “combine a love of detail with a people oriented role”. Melissa has expertise in all facets of the property market and property management in particular. Indeed, Melissa’s expertise in property management saw her portfolio of properties under management grow rapidly.

A natural communicator, Melissa is aware that she’s providing professional assistance at a key point in peoples’ lives. As she says, “whether clients are seeking someone to manage their property, help them buy their first home or invest after retirement, people need honest, straight forward advice from someone who has a genuine interest in them. Being humble is the key; I understand that each client will have specific needs that I will need to meet. That’s the job in a nutshell."

Specialising in properties on the Yorke Peninsula, Melissa’s high standard of professionalism makes Ray White a natural fit for her. As Melissa says, “Ray White is the market leader when it comes to ensuring that the highest possible professional standards are met, and this is something I value enormously.”

Melissa and her Ray White team were recognised at a state level when they were voted the No.1 Property Management team in 2017 .

Benny and John

We want to thank Melissa Bussenschutt and her team for doing such a great job managing our investment property at North shores, Wallaroo. We appreciate the time and effort that is put into managing the property. We have tried other local agents and have found their performance is no where near as good as the team and Ray White. Ray White have been managing our property on and off now for 3 years and we have learnt a very hard and valuable lesson trying other agents. We have no hesitation in recommending Melissa and her team to anyone for their real estate needs.


I would just like to thank you for all the help you have given me since employing your services as Property Manager for our investment property in Kadina. You have made my life so much easier with the assistance that you have given me., and as always go above and beyond the call of duty to ensure that I am informed and up to date with what is happening with my house on a regular basis. It is without doubt the most pleasant experience dealing with your office as I am always greeted with a friendly voice and nothing is too hard to deal with. With local knowledge and a vast network of trade contacts it has been a simple task to get work/ maintenance done when required, which has been a frustration for me in the past. I have absolutely no [problem recommending your services to anyone, as they would not find an agent better. Thank you again.


As in interstate investor I am extremely grateful for the help and support Melissa has given me. I have no hesitation in recommending her team to anyone for all their real estate needs. She has gone beyond the second mile for me in all ways and I know I have no worries what so eve in relation to me property investments. She is a very caring person and I know my property is in safe hands.


Thanks Mel, it has been a pleasure dealing with you and your team and I really appreciate all your efforts over the 3.5years – wow time does fly Our kids are renting properties in Adelaide and the agents managing those are very hard to get in touch with, don’t respond to emails or phone calls even if the issue is urgent. This has certainly not been my experience and I think you have done a great job advocating for me and for the tenants which I really do appreciate
