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.

We continue to deal with Helen because she is a proven professional in all respects of the business, whether selling, or buying local properties. Helen can be relied upon to openly communicate from the beginning of a negotiation, right through the process to closure of the deal. Helen is also a pleasure to work with when other agents can be either pushy, or lack the drive to promptly achieve a successful outcome. We will certainly be dealing with Helen in the future and can recommend her to anyone wanting a clear, thorough and honest person to guide them through a sale, or purchase, process.

I have used Paul's real estate services on several occasions and he always seems to match buyers and sellers at prices beyond expectations. He is one of the most knowledgeable agents in the Byron Shire and is extremely realistic and prudent when it comes down to negotiation skills.

Paul was upfront, honest, fair and friendly. I could not have asked for more and would highly recommend working with Paul whether you are selling or buying.

It has been an absolute pleasure dealing with Paul during the purchase of our property in Suffolk Park. From the outset Paul's relaxed, easy going manner allowed us a calm environment in which we could inspect the property without the feeling that we were being pressured. Paul was extremely helpful during the negotiation period. As a local for many years in Byron Paul has an in-depth knowledge of the region and the local housing market. After the sale was signed he was always available to assist us with recommendations for local tradesmen, pool maintenance etc. As we shall be renting the property he quickly set up a meeting with the Rental Dept of the agency and in no time it was advertised for rental. We can thoroughly recommend Paul, Helen and the team at Byron Bay First National to anyone who is interested in buying, selling or renting in the Byron Bay region. We couldn't be happier with our experience!

It is clear that Tara is 100% committed to ensuring the buyer and seller are happy with the outcome. She is an excellent communicator and ensured our stress levels remained as low as possible through what can typically be a daunting process. I have no hesitation in giving Tara a 10 out of 10 recommendation!

If you’re looking for an agent you can trust and will go the extra mile to get the best result possible, then look no further than Helen from First National. I would have no hesitation recommending her to anyone considering engaging her services.

Su and James and the team at First National Byron Bay were fantastic to work with from start to finish. Su has a lovely manner and when she met with us to discuss our various options regarding marketing and price, at no time did we feel pressured. Having dealt with First National Byron office several years ago with the sale of an investment property, we were very happy to again call upon Su and James to list our home. Their enthusiasm to remain positive was contagious. We believe that without the negotiation ability of both Su and James, combined with good people skills and determination, we would not have received the result we wanted. Thanks so very much!
