At First National we put you first

"I'm super excited about the technology"

If you belong to a franchise, you might have certain expectations when it comes to a visit (if you get one) from your corporate head office. However, things are a little different at First National Real Estate. We're not here to tell you what to do, but we will help you run a better business. The difference is that we put you and your interests first.

Here's one of our team of Member Services Managers - Sean Hines - paying a visit to First National Borg & Associates in Deer Park Victoria. Here's where the difference shines like a beacon - we're focused on the tools agents most need to get their business heading in the direction they want. And... as you can see, our members are pretty enthusiastic!

When you're considering whether to change brands, or join a real estate network, the standard of training resources and corporate support on offer is always top of mind. Each year, First National Real Estate hosts a National Convention to bring together members from across Australia, New Zealand and Vanuatu. We do this so expertise can be shared and training provided on the very latest developments in real estate - but that's just a bonus when you consider our year round training schedue and resource base.

First National Foundation: Supporting Communities Devastated By Flood, Fire & Storms

Posted by Stewart Bunn on Apr 18, 2017 4:41:24 PM

First National proves itself to be one of Australia’s most generous networks by raising funds not just for Australian Red Cross Emergency Services but also for communities devastated by flood, fire and storms.

Over $1.5 million has been raised by members for Australian Red Cross Emergency Services but First National Foundation also allows members to raise and distribute funds simply and effectively, in local communities. 

First National’s real estate agents have always responded well in times of crisis and our support of Red Cross Emergency Services provides tangible evidence, each year, as Australians grapple with natural disasters. Our funding underpins efforts such as the Red Cross National Crisis Hotline that helps families get in contact with loved ones when normal communications are cut.

Through our support of Australian Red Cross and other good causes, First National Foundation continues to confirm the network’s identity as a responsible, corporate citizen, supporting Australian communities.

Community Connection Through Perth Wildcats Basketball Clinics

Posted by Stewart Bunn on Apr 18, 2017 4:29:36 PM

First National Real Estate's continued sponsorship of the Perth Wildcats basketball team provides the opportunity for kids and families to meet their idols at Basketball Clinics throughout Western Australia.

The network’s guests receive invitations to the First National corporate box at Perth Arena where massive courtside LCD panels advertise First National's sponsorship.

TV and radio exposure helps spread the message, both in Western Australia and the rest of the country, and Wildcats coaches wear First National branding (gaining the network extra exposure each time cameras zoomed in during tense moments).

Throughout Western Australia, the public response has been incredible, with basketball clinics in various schools attracting enthusiastic participation.
