6+ Decades of Personal Service

There are few businesses that can say they’ve been around for 65+ years, least of all real estate companies.

Longevity takes commitment, knowledge, integrity, honesty, professionalism, experience and the provision of great service.

From the start in 1957 to 2023 Scarce Real Estate has used each of these valuable characteristics when earning an impressive reputation for helping our clients to realise their property dreams.

Our business is highly respected within the real estate industry for an ethical approach to both selling and managing real estate.

Scarce Real Estate is a proud second generation, independent and 100% family owned agency based in the leafy eastern suburb of Tusmore.  Our big, blue, high profile office and large window display is hard to miss and is conveniently located approximately 4kms from the CBD at 457 Greenhill Road. 

Our goal is to create a positive and memorable experience so our clients come back and refer us to others.

It's more than just real estate to us . . . our business and our reputation are backed by our Scarce family name.

Our Written PromiseOur guarantee of great service

Each of our vendors are provided a "No questions asked" signed Service Guarantee.  Within our Service Guarantee there are 10 important goals Scarce Real Estate promises to deliver. 

Acting in our vendor's best interest, achieving the highest possible price and best contract conditions, qualifying buyers and keeping an up to date database are among them.

Our Service Guarantee is also formed on the philosophy that it's the little things that really count.  Our team takes great pride in promptly returning phone calls and emails; providing open and honest communication; feedback; being courteous, truthful and fair.

We believe all the little things we do at Scarce Real Estate add up to be the finest real estate service possible.

Our business may be 65+ years old but our commitment to service remains the same.  Thank goodness . . . some things never change.

Our Local Area and Beyond

As a long-term local area specialist, Scarce Real Estate has an understanding and appreciation of the lifestyle benefits and facilities of our eastern suburbs, of residential property values, real estate investment and local trends.  Our local knowledge also includes a unique insight into the future growth of the area.

With our office well positioned in the affluent suburb of Tusmore our business is well equipped to handle the sale and or management of a range of properties.

Our expertise extends from land to apartments, units to detached dwellings, small to large homes and the more high end properties for which the area is well known.

However, over the years our real estate sales and property management has not been limited to the eastern suburbs.

We've been asked by many clients to handle the sale and or management of property in other suburbs for either themselves, their family, friends, business associates and other connections.


As a result, our portfolio includes a diverse variety of properties throughout central Adelaide, the metropolitan area, the northern suburbs, the western suburbs, areas to the south, the scenic Adelaide Hills and the picturesque South Coast.

With over 65+ years in the business, there is possibly not a corner of Adelaide where a Scarce Real Estate signboard has not appeared.
