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.

The professional approach shown by Paul Bannister and the team at First National Byron Bay made them a pleasure to do business with. From the time we decided to sell through to exchange of contracts the communication was excellent, which made for a stress free process for us as vendors. I commend his enthusiasm, negotiation skills and knowledge of the local market. Over the years we have noticed that excellent team work is the key to giving clients the confidence that their best interests are being looked after, and this is evident in the service that Paul and First National Byron Bay provides.

Helen is a person of high integrity and has a strong work ethic. Recently she sold my house in Suffolk Park. The sale was complex and needed expert skills from Helen to enable me to achieve the result I was requiring. Helen achieved a very good outcome for me, with committed professionalism and efficiency. As an estate agent myself of some 30 years duration, I can confirm Helen’s abilities without equivocation. Both socially and professionally Helen has strong connections locally and she is very well regarded in the Byron Bay community.

Byron Bay Legend! Su Reynolds certainly deserves her well known reputation as one of the top agents in Byron Bay and the Northern Rivers. She quickly achieved an excellent result for us on this sale. Absolutely no hesitation in sending my family and friends to Su whether they are selling or looking to buy. Su is very knowledgeable about the local market, history of sales, who is selling, who might sell, what properties are coming up and the value of it all. Great work, thanks again to Su.
