Altitude Real Estate Toronto, a leading real estate agency on the shores of Lake Macquarie, has announced it is rebranding as First National Real Estate Toronto, under the leadership of principal David Westerman. This comes as Westerman returns his business to Australia’s largest real estate cooperative, First National Real Estate, after a three-year absence.

David Westerman cites the value, technology and expertise sharing offered by First National as the main reason for his return.

‘The technology and services provided by First National are as good if not better than many franchise offerings because First National doesn’t exist to make profit for shareholders or private owners,’ says Mr Westerman.

‘It is the only national major real estate group in Australia that does not charge commissions to members, the only group where member councils decide how money is spent, and it invests heavily up-skilling its agents. For roughly two selling fees per year, my staff receive industry-leading professional development, the industry’s best systems and an ethical support network.’

Mr Westerman says he and his team are committed to offering Toronto’s leading property services and this move will assure that happens, with access to exclusive advertising systems that use data to leverage online search behaviours of buyers and tenants being an example.

‘This innovative approach has revolutionised property services and overturned traditional techniques,’ says Mr Westerman.

‘By partnering with First National Real Estate, we have access to a technology and collaborative structure that puts our clients first. I am excited to bring this new level of innovation to the Toronto real estate market.’

First National Real Estate Toronto will continue to provide service and advice to its clients, but now backed by the resources and expertise of thousands of agents working together.

‘This rebrand marks a new chapter in our agency’s history. With a focus on innovative technology and a structure that puts clients first, First National Real Estate Toronto is poised to lead the way in our local real estate market’ says Mr Westerman.

First National Real Estate has more than 320 offices throughout Australia, New Zealand, Vanuatu and New Caledonia. In the Lake Macquarie region, there are offices in Toronto, Belmont, Swansea, Edgeworth, The Junction, Charmhaven and Wyong.
