Sophie I want to thank you again so much for being such an incredible property manager during my tenancy at 19B Pacific Vista Drive – outstanding! Your genuine, approachable, and always professional manner made our time at this rental property such a pleasure. Always so happy and bubbly – and you always knew your stuff – providing the correct advice, details, documents – always happy to help – no question was too hard – always a sense of humor. Even when First National was no longer managing the property – you checked in to see how we were going during the management transition, sent through documents required for when I was leaving the tenancy – you ran rings around Harcourts – and helped fix their oversights and blunders –  with ease! You did not have to do this – there was no obligation or responsibility – thank you 😊 If only all Real Estate agents in Byron Bay were like you and First National –  clearly caring about their integrity, their service, and their community – no wonder you guys win all the awards!!! Thank you Sophie!!!!! Wishing you only the best!!!!!!

First National Byron was the best real estate agency I have dealt with to date. My Property Manager Sophie Moir, was always contactable and on the slight chance she wasn't would get back to me straight away. She was extremely helpful and understanding, anyone would be lucky to have her as your Property Manager! The team as a whole were fantastic and I highly regard the agency. Thank you for being so genuine, and absolute legends!

I really enjoyed working with Paddy Wallington with our commercial property. Paddy is a lovely man with a kind, calm demeanor and he was prompt, responsive and accountable in all our interactions. I would recommend him very highly!

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.

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.
