Our Story So Far

Established in 1988 as Margaret Robertson PRD, our company has its roots firmly planted in the Byron Shire community.

We’ve grown from a small agency, with the region’s top real estate agent at its helm, to the Northern Rivers leading property business.

In the past 30 years, First National Byron has cemented its position as the region’s number one agency, servicing a footprint that extends from Wardell to Byron Bay, Bangalow, the Hinterland, Mullumbimby and New Brighton. We are proud to be recognized as an iconic local company employing the most highly trained and accomplished sales property management, marketing and office management staff.

Since our doors opened, First National Byron has sold more than $2 billion worth of residential and commercial properties. We currently manage properties worth about $250 million.

We have developed the region’s largest, most dynamic database of buyers who have expressed interest in buying property in the area. We are also at the cutting-edge of real estate marketing and sales strategy, networking with national and international leaders to give our clients a competitive edge.

First National Byron is all about its people and its community.

We were the first local agency to offer paid traineeships, we invest heavily in professional development and training, and take pride in fostering a culture of support, friendship, fun and results.

Above all else, we live, work and play in the Northern Rivers. We know our patch, love our people, embrace our lifestyle and are actively involved in events and initiatives that shape our region.

We look forward to sharing our knowledge with you.

Tara was amazing to work with. We knew when we first meet her that she was the one we wanted to sell our home. She was very well spoken, professional and informative. She always responded to us immediately and always helpful. Her communication was clear and very friendly. We found Tara extremely efficient when organising open homes and client appointments. She sold our home within 2 weeks which says all there is too say. Tara is an outstanding real estate agent.

I have known and worked with Helen Huntly Barratt for a few years with regard to the sale of my property at 62 Kingsley St, Byron Bay. From my first contact with Helen I was impressed with her style. She is professional, friendly, extremely conscientious, motivated, well presented, supportive and above all honest. I have always felt that Helen was 'on my side' so to speak in her efforts to achieve the most appropriate outcome in relation to the sale of my property.

The service Su Reynolds provided as agent for the sale of my property was outstanding. Su is highly organised and proficient. She always made herself available to discuss marketing and put together an impressive sales campaign. Su has a breadth of experience with the Byron Bay property market which inspires confidence.

We had our block on the market for almost two years before listing with Tara at First National Byron Bay. Firstly Tara was a delight to work with, very patient, pro-active, prompt at returning calls and nothing was too much trouble. She was very professional from our first meeting and put a completely new marketing plan together for us with the sole purpose of generating some new interest in the property and getting buyers to start making enquiries and inspecting the block. This strategy started working within the first couple of weeks and we had more inspections in the first month it was listed with Tara than we had in the previous 12 months. Once an offer was made on the block Tara was very professional negotiating the final price. The initial offer we received was much lower than our expectations and Tara did a fantastic job in securing the price we needed after long and protracted negotiations’. We would have no hesitation in using Tara again as a selling agent and would recommend her to any vendors in the Byron Shire.

My appraisal of Helen is based on conversations via a number of telephone calls. I have never met her in person. My impression is that she is extremely dedicated to her calling. She appears very knowledgeable in the Real Estate business in Byron Bay and displayed high communication skills in the articulation of my necessary actions and ensuring that that all activities are known and completed within required time frames to ensure successful completion. She obviously has a high work ethic and I would have no hesitation in recommending Helen to anyone buying or selling a property in Byron Bay.
