First National Real Estate Abode Property owners Allan and Anna Falvey are reeling after learning that their growing business was gutted by a fire that swept through several businesses on the corner of Bong Bong Street and Merrigang Street in Bowral last night.

The business, which was experiencing rapid growth and had moved from Mittagong to the main street of Bowral just six months ago, has had its office completely destroyed.

However, the owners say they will fight on, and are determined to establish temporary premises as quickly as possible to continue their operations from.

‘We have worked so hard to build a business with a strong reputation and everything was really starting to come together’ said First National Abode Property principal, Allan Falvey.

‘Our sales team is growing; our property management department is strong, and this is just a temporary setback that we will recover from,’ said Mr Falvey.

‘My wife Anna and I are determined to come back, bigger and stronger, and we’re doing everything possible to reassure our staff and customers that we will see this challenge through and be back on our feet as soon as possible’

This morning, an investigation is underway as to what caused the fire and First National Abode Property is in recovery mode, contacting customers and attending to appointments to show properties.

‘Our customers still need us and we will not let them down,’ said Mr Falvey.

‘For the moment, obviously, we’re asking our clients to contact us by phone or email while we enact our recovery plan and get everything back on track,’
