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.

I’ve been looking for my first investment property for some time. I saw this property and Su put me straight onto Luke from First National who made a special time for me to view it as I was unable to make the regular time. I loved it and my offer was accepted within days. It was how I always hoped it would be. Uncomplicated and the right feel.

Luke has been terrific to deal with. He has communicated regularly with us, following up in a timely manner and answered all of our questions thoroughly. Despite us trying to drive a better deal before making our offer, he managed to build value into the property rather than discount the price so I would suggest he acted with the Vendor's interest in mind.

Rebecca and Brett Frizelle

Great deal, all parties happy, desired result achieved from both ends.

Andrew Nieuwenhof and the Byron First National Sales Team left no stone unturned to find a buyer for our property. Communication between the sales team and us was always first rate, as Andrew kept us up-to-date with what had happened with each open house or by appointment inspection. There were frequent conferences organised by Andrew with us to map out strategies to sell our property and we felt part of the process all the time. It's important to note that there was also good communication between Andrew and our solicitor. Andrew's approach at all times was extremely professional. In the end, his thorough communications and skills as an agent gave us the result we wanted.

Helen is a great agent, with terrific local knowledge. We have now sold multiple properties within our family with Helen and her colleagues at BBFN. We have always been happy with the outcomes and this sale was the same. Despite a period of worrying market disinterest, Helen persevered and reassured us, and following a readjustment to our expectations, she was able to present the property to probably the perfect buyer for that property. Another great result and happy seller and buyer. We are happy to recommend Helen.
