We’re with you from search to settlement

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.

  • Professional photography by industry specialists
  • Professional videography
  • Property listings on the First National website and leading property sites
  • Print advertising
  • Online property alerts to the largest local database of buyers who have expressed interest in Byron Shire and Lennox Head properties
  • Targeted direct mail campaigns
  • Professionally designed brochures and custom signboards.

Oliver Aldridge contacted us by email on a few occasions earlier this year keeping us up to date with recent sales of units in the area known as Sunrise Beach, so it was a natural fit for us to ask him to be the agent when we decided to sell. He was hardworking, friendly, honest and informative throughout the whole process and was always available to fit into our timeframes for meetings. We are happy with the result and would recommend him.

If you have a property to sell in the Byron Region, I would thoroughly recommend Helen Huntly-Barratt. As a retired Real Estate Agent and owner of my own Agency for many years, it was a big decision to trust another agent with the sale of our family property. However, all our concerns were unnecessary. Helen was wonderful. All of our requests were respected. Helen also worked especially well with my elderly mother, who continued to live in our family home, on her own, during the sale. Mum always felt safe, informed and considered by Helen and her team, from beginning to end. In addition, Helen's negotiation skills were excellent. Helen managed our offers with professionalism and honesty, resulting in us achieving more than our "asking price". We would thoroughly recommend Helen Huntly-Barratt to you too.
