A new leader in Melbourne real estate

A new leader in Melbourne real estate
Jack Hayes

Suzie Inglis has lived and thrived in just about every real estate role you can think of.

From reception, she was identified for her sharp mind and magnetic personality, quickly rising through the ranks, including leasing consultant, business development manager (BDM), property manager, sales agent, and property advisor.

Now, she has followed in the footsteps of pioneering city agent, Gina Donazzan, to become partner of leading agency, Melbourne Boutique Property (MBP) (formerly Donazzan Boutique Property).

When Ms Inglis began her career more than 10 years ago, she admitted the industry could be a hostile one, particularly for women, but through that time the landscape changed, progress was made and that is something she wants to continue as a leader of her organisation.

“I’m invested, and I’m here to stay. I want to be a part of an environment that helps support women, that sees them grow and realise their potential,” she said.

“It’s a fantastic career if you are willing to work hard and invest in people around you.”


I’ve had a woman like Gina before me with a career of nearly thirty years running her own business and I can directly see the benefits of empowering women in business.


“I would love to see a nurturing approach to young agents … real estate can be a tough environment and industry, but it is also an incredibly rewarding one. To nurture and develop young talent is something I’m incredibly passionate about.”

According to Ms Inglis, her approach to her clients remains unwavering regardless of title, and it’s one that has seen her receive a five-star review average on realestate.com.au.

“I feel true to myself and true to my word when I say, I am always here for you. We have a growing team who you will work with along the way, but you will always have my time and attention,” Ms Inglis said.

“There’s too much burnout in the industry. That’s bad for the person and bad for the employer. I want the next generation to know there are people there to help you and invest in you, just like MBP has invested in me.”

MBP director, Kim Davey, said from early in Ms Inglis’s career he could “easily see she had the talent and the rare qualities of discernment and empathy.”

“It was these qualities that empower her and empower MBP where she helps create that working culture and environment for women to thrive,” he said.

“Suzie has had to the opportunity to buy into other agencies, but she has chosen MBP because she believes in a workplace of equity, one that removes barriers and glass ceilings.”

MBP specialises in Melbourne’s boutique, heritage, and premier property market.
