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 have dealt with Paul twice before and am currently selling a property with him, and my preference would be to only deal with him for all my future transactions.

I met Tara at a speculative viewing and was immediately impressed by her friendly approach and knowledge of the market. When it came to selling my property, I knew she was the right person. Really good communicator, and helpful and diligent at every stage of the process. Basically, if you don't really like estate agents, then I would highly recommend you meet with Tara!

Helene listened to our views on one house, realised it was not what we were looking for, had a clear appreciation of what was coming on the market and likelihood of it suiting us, arranged an inspection and kept us informed. She responded to our various requests for information in a timely manner. She was extremely helpful as well as very personable.

Professional and Likeable ... Too Easy

We have known Helen, along with many other real estate agents in our town, for many years. To be honest when it came to selling our home we were in "2 minds" about which agent we would choose and what type of agency agreement we would use. We chose Helen as our exclusive agent. From the get-go Helen has never strayed from her core value and that is why we chose her. She is likeable, trustworthy, reliable, confident and always professional. James Young, a First National team member, handled the negotiating process because at that time Helen was temporarily unavailable (for good reason). Helen, went 'above and beyond' and remained in phone contact with us during her absence, providing excellent feedback, which we as the vendors, were keen to listen to. Our home has been sold in a very timely fashion. We highly recommend Helen and we thank her for all her efforts.

We have been clients of First National for thirty years and consequently had high expectations of Su's professional expertise, these proved to be well justified. Su demonstrated a well-founded knowledge of the Byron Bay market and communicated her knowledge clearly and carefully starting with the work standard required for a quick sale at the best price (please note that the house had been a rental property for over ten years). At no time did Su try to pressure us with high pitched sales and technical talk, something for which we were both grateful. Su carefully and clearly explained her plan for the sale explaining that there few houses in the area for sale and that she would have to feel out the price people were prepared to pay. We were very impressed with the competency of her plan and the thoughtful yet enthusiastic energy she displayed in its implementation. We had to leave the Bay prior to the sale but again Su's professional expertise continued to be demonstrated, at least twice a week she would phone us to keep us informed of any progress, what action she had been taking or need for any change needed to increase the saleability of the property. We would emphasize that at no time did Su alter her modus operandi without communicating the reasons for the required change. We were both well satisfied with the price Su obtained for our property. In conclusion we would like to express our thanks, gratitude and deep satisfaction to Su for her very high professional and communication skills plus her very friendly and approach to us as clients it was professionalism at its best. We would highly recommend Su to anyone wishing to sell a property. Please feel free to contact us should you wish to discuss this further.
