Our Approach

At First National Byron, we recognise that selling or buying real estate is one of the most important decisions you will ever make.

Our philosophy is simple. If you trust us with the keys to your home or business, we’ll do everything possible to create competition among genuine buyers and secure the highest price for your property.

What sets us apart from other agents in Byron Shire and Lennox Head is our capacity to negotiate. It is the cornerstone of our business and the reason why we are the leading agency in the local coastal and hinterland area, having sold more than $2 billion worth of residential and commercial properties.

Our Sales Strategy

Our sales strategy has been developed and refined over 30 years.
Here’s a snapshot of the key steps we take to deliver the best results:

Inspect property, discuss seller’s objectives, identify market trends and provide a market appraisal

Develop an evidence-based sales strategy specific to your property that is realistic and flexible

Implement a fully costed and dynamic marketing plan that incorporates digital and traditional media

Manage open inspections and inquiries online and in person

Provide a weekly activity schedule that keeps you in the loop (and us accountable) every step of the way

Negotiate all offers to maximise the sale price.

Our Marketing Edge

We engage a team of digital marketing, copywriting and creative experts to maximise your online property presence, and to put you in front of genuine buyers.

We have also teamed up with Australia’s top property websites and local online media to offer the best possible exposure at competitive rates.

Brian and I had a most positive time with Helene throughout the sale of our home. She possesses great interpersonal skills which was much needed at times when there were difficulties regarding the sale and emotional moments about leaving our home of 26 years. We found her to be straightforward and professional while still having a human touch about it all. Whilst doing a comprehensive job for us and keep us in contact she was also not invasive or intrusive. A very positive person with a great laugh.

My husband and I recently purchased our dream property in Myocum NSW. Tara Torkkola was the agent who looked after us from start to finish. Tara was very professional, helpful and personal throughout the whole experience. She seemed to have a good relationship with the seller and was able to help us communicate with the seller quickly and effectively. Tara has strong knowledge of the local area. I would recommend her as an agent.
