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 came to our aid, when we discussed the need for a quick sale, in view of the fluent state of the market that may rise or fall at any time. Paul suggested a strategy that we followed, and his strategy worked out really well for us. We made substantially more from the sale than we had anticipated. I cannot give more than 5 stars for a rating, but if I could I would.

We were very impressed with Andrew's handling of the sale of Mum and Dad's property. From the time we approached him to the sale of the property, Andrew has been professional, friendly and very empathetic - understanding the reluctance to sell. He was always polite - one of life's true gentlemen.

Tara is a total professional in every way. Simply, she does everything she promises, and more. Communication and follow-up is outstanding. Never once has she adopted the lazy agent approach of trying to influence the vendor to lower their expectations if a quick result hasn't been achieved. She is resilient, persistent and always in our corner.

When Matt and I wanted to sell our house, we knew we wanted someone we trusted. We needed a firm opinion of our house's worth, we needed the house sold quickly and we needed help to buff it into shape before sale. We trusted Tara, having bought our property from her a few years earlier and really appreciated the way she kept in touch with us during that time. Being a small town, we would bump into Tara occasionally and she would always have a ready smile and easy conversation. In short, Tara is a consummate professional. She is a great communicator. Tara gave us great advice, a firm opinion of our property's worth and put us in touch with a fabulous team of people who helped us get our house ready for sale. Our house sold in the first week of the campaign, and we got exactly what we wanted. We can't recommend Tara highly enough - whether you're buying or selling.
