“Anna – A thorough professional: Anna is not one of those who would either give you false promises OR would advise questionable means to get you the PR at any cost. Instead he would always offer you his honest assessment.”

Australian PR process can be daunting, especially since the administration keeps the rules dynamic and understanding them requires extensive effort and knowledge. Information availability on the internet is also scattered and does not always ignite confidence in the applicant. After a bit of research, I stumbled upon Anna’s PR services and was impressed by his credentials. My confidence in his abilities grew once I had my initial consultation call with him, which was conducted in a very professional manner and without any selfish motives on Anna’s behalf. My case was a bit tricky, and Anna’s part payment flexibility was helpful, allowing me to take the plunge.

Anna handled the entire process meticulously, and I did not have to spend much time at all in “knowing” the rules. Instead, I was only following Anna’s directions in getting the documents that were required during the different stages. Everything was handled very smoothly in a time efficient way, with a very high accuracy. I have an inquisitive nature when it comes to big decisions, and I must have asked tens of questions to Anna, all of which were addressed to my satisfaction. Please note that Anna is not one of those who would either give you false promises OR would advise questionable means to get you the PR at any cost. Instead he would always offer you his honest assessment. As an applicant, one needs to know that nobody has a magic wand or a crystal ball, and hence one needs to be patient, but also be prepared to take a leap of faith in certain cases. 

My engagement with Anna has been very positive and I definitely recommend him strongly to anyone requiring assistance in their Australia PR process. He comes across as a mentor and a friend, and not just any other PR agent to whom you would be delegating your work!”
