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.

You have both done an excellent job personally as have all the team at First National Byron Bay including the excellent photography by Saul. I have especially appreciated your consideration of me during Open Inspections and on other occasions as well as being kept up to date with your reports. I know that my son appreciates your efforts and capacity to keep us all in the link during negotiations. I feel we have all worked very well together to achieve the final result.

Helen was easy to work with. In that she knew what her vendor needed and she quickly came to understand what I needed. She was truthful and honest. She understood how I wanted to work and tried her best to accommodate me but also maintain the position of the vendor. I recommend working with Helen from buy side but I suspect she will have good sell aside recommendations as well.

I recently sold my property at 1/21 Sunrise Boulevard through your agency, however prior to that, the property had been managed for some 12 years by your property management team. Therefore, I would like to express my sincere thanks to Virginia Kane and her team, particularly Sophie Moir who managed the property over the last 12-14 months. I always found the team and Sophie in particular to be very customer focused. When I did enquire about any possible problems (e.g. storm damage or repairs) Sophie always had the matter in hand; I didn’t have to chase up. This was very pleasing to me and reflects Sophie's professionalism. I would recommend your property management team to anyone considering leasing out their property in the Byron Shire.

I found Su to be really on top of the whole process. Faultless! I would urge everyone wanting to sell their home to start with the best.
