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.

It was a refreshing experience dealing with Helen on this sale. She was upfront, honest and straightforward and kept me in the loop at all times.

I had no previous business association with Helen Huntly-Barratt when I listed 2 of my properties with her agency, Byron Bay First National Real Estate. I have however had many experiences with agents involving more than 25 property transactions, so I feel I am qualified to make comment on Helen’s capabilities as a Real Estate Agent and business owner. Helen is ultra-professional while remaining totally approachable and her communication skills are excellent. I knew exactly what was going on at every stage of the marketing and selling of my home. The selling strategy Helen applied to the sale of my property at 103 Federal Drive, Eureka, resulted in an outstanding sale price. I have every confidence knowing she obtained the highest possible price from the multiple buyers she was negotiating with. Helen is a hard-working and honest agent who kept my best interests at heart at all times. I genuinely offer this testimonial to account for her skills, character and integrity. She is a standout agent…and she also has excellent taste in wine.
