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.

From our very first meeting with Helen it didn’t take long to realise just how passionate Helen was about her work! Helen excelled way above any other agent we have had dealings with. Helen was very professional and articulate in any of our contacts. Helen was like a “whirlwind”, bringing potential buyers each week, then providing follow-up to us each time. All things other agents didn’t do. We highly recommend Helen to all our friends and acquaintances for her marketing style and hard work. We would definitely use First National again. Thank you.

I currently live in Perth and was selling my house on Bangalow Rd, Byron Bay. I wanted an agent whose advice I could trust and in Helen I found that person. I found her to be personable, hardworking, and willing to make adjustments as the campaign progressed. She always kept me informed all along the way. As a result she achieved a sale in a few weeks, which was much to my relief. I would have no hesitation in recommending her services should you be considering them.

Whilst most of our dealing were with Su our initial contact with Tara was what put us onto the property we purchased. Both Su and Tara were great to deal with, keeping us well informed of the progress and balancing the needs and expectations of the Vendor with a real understanding of our needs and concerns as a purchaser. Su has a very calm disposition which helped calm us during the emotional ups and downs of purchasing. I would highly recommend both Su and Tara for your real estate needs.
