We made the right choice with First National. Good advice, great service and great people with access to a very willing pool of investors. Our sale went smoothly, early and above the price we expected. Can't do better than that.

We were very impressed with Andrew's handling of the sale of Mum and Dad's property. From the time we approached him to the sale of the property, Andrew has been professional, friendly and very empathetic - understanding the reluctance to sell. He was always polite - one of life's true gentlemen.

Andrew Nieuwenhof and the Byron First National Sales Team left no stone unturned to find a buyer for our property. Communication between the sales team and us was always first rate, as Andrew kept us up-to-date with what had happened with each open house or by appointment inspection. There were frequent conferences organised by Andrew with us to map out strategies to sell our property and we felt part of the process all the time. It's important to note that there was also good communication between Andrew and our solicitor. Andrew's approach at all times was extremely professional. In the end, his thorough communications and skills as an agent gave us the result we wanted.

Our rental property in Byron Bay has been managed for the past 5 years by Sophie Moir at First National. On the two occasions when tenants were sought the process was quick and efficient and the screening of potential tenants resulted in reliable and high-quality tenants. At all times Sophie provided excellent service and prompt response to both tenant and landlord queries. Due to our recent relocation back to Byron Bay we are now residing in our property and would have no hesitation in highly recommending Sophie and First National to manage rental properties.

Our new house is due to settle soon. We will miss living in the place and having Sophie as our property manager. Kate and I were thinking the other day and couldn't remember a time when we have had a landlord and agent that were so easy to deal with,…

Our new house is due to settle soon. We will miss living in the place and having Sophie as our property manager. Kate and I were thinking the other day and couldn't remember a time when we have had a landlord and agent that were so easy to deal with, friendly and willing to help. We have lived in a lot of rentals during our time and you are by far the best, most friendly and easy to contact property manager we have come across. So, thank you from both of us for being great at your job and allowing us to rent our house from you. First National are lucky to have you 🙂

Big thanks to Sophie! Great service - I appreciated the straight forward process.
