Two of the North Shore’s best-known real estate agencies have joined forces under the First National Real Estate brand, strengthening the network’s market presence in the region’s highest density commercial, residential and retail district – Chatswood.

First National Regency Realty officially launches its new venture today, following the purchase of one of Chatswood’s longest serving franchise agencies. The acquisition see’s the former franchise’s high profile location near Chatswood railway station re-branded First National Real Estate, and its entire team absorbed into the new business structure.

First National Regency Realty principal Simon Boroudjani says he’s thrilled that co-principals of the former franchise, Robert and Christine McElhome, and their team will be staying on in the new business, given their 17 years of experience selling and managing some of the most prestigious properties in the area.

“The excellence and reputation of Robert and Christine’s sales and property management team is well established so it makes for an ideal fit with my team and its commercial expertise. We’ll set new standards in Chatswood, reinvigorate local competitiveness, and improve choice for local residents and businesses” said Mr Boroudjani.

Robert and Christine McElhome are equally excited about becoming part of First National Real Estate, after being introduced to the systems, services and technologies that the country’s largest real estate cooperative has on offer.

“We love the brand and everything that First National Real Estate represents” said Mrs McElhome.

“The technologies are industry leading, the support is exceptional, and we are looking forward to a new chapter in Chatswood real estate”.

First National Real Estate has 400 offices across Australia, New Zealand and New Caledonia, making it Australia’s third largest real estate brand and the nation’s largest group of independent agents. It has been awarded Canstar Blue’s 2017/18 ‘Most Satisfied Customers’ award, for a second consecutive year, and is the only brand to have received 5-star ratings from Australian consumers in its research.
