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.

Paul Banister led the sales and via his tremendous application, over a short period of time, a sale at market evaluation was achieved. Any associations with Byron Bay First National Real Estate have always been excellent.

It was a very quick sale - around 6 weeks from start to finish, which was great. In my dealings with agents, I've noticed that they don't follow up with calls back very often, but Paul definitely did.

While our property remained longer on the market than expected, Su was instrumental with her advice regarding with which buyers to engage in negotiations. She has a detailed knowledge of the market and we felt very comfortable with following her advice. I feel that she achieved a great result for us, for the buyer and also for her First National Team. Thank you Su.

We have purchased and sold properties with Helen on previous occasions. The reason we return to Helen every time is that we know we will be working with a thorough professional who knows the market and can communicate effectively. Helen is very pleasant to deal with and can expedite a sale/purchase with consummate skill. We will return to Helen for future business for these very reasons and can certainly recommend her to anyone who requires an agent who is dedicated to 1st Class business outcomes.

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.

From the time of our first meeting with Luke to discuss the sale of our property, we were impressed with the advice he offered regarding the service that First National, Byron Bay could offer. Luke was diligent in providing frequent reports and advice about advertising and response to open house inspections. He sought our input at critical points leading up to the initial offers we received and the major decisions leading to the finalisation of the sale. The final sale price set a new benchmark for our type of property in Byron Bay. We were delighted with the outcome.

Good honest and easy going agent. I would have no hesitation in recommending these agents to any future buyers or sellers looking to get the outcome they desire. A very smooth process!

From our very first meeting with Helen it didn’t take long to realise just how passionate Helen was about her work! Helen excelled way above any other agent we have had dealings with. Helen was very professional and articulate in any of our contacts. Helen was like a “whirlwind”, bringing potential buyers each week, then providing follow-up to us each time. All things other agents didn’t do. We highly recommend Helen to all our friends and acquaintances for her marketing style and hard work. We would definitely use First National again. Thank you.
