I have found Shane to be very professional and well versed in the local real estate market. After a lot of hard work he achieved a high price for our unit. He is particularly good with communicating. I was very happy with his assistance and the final outcome, so much so that he has just sold another of our properties for a record price.

Shane I would like to take this opportunity to say thanks to both you and your father Ken for making the journey of selling so much easier, for your feedback after every open home inspection and to your office with reminders of open homes. Your professionalism and sincerity are very valuable in your business and I would recommend First National real estate to any buyers or sellers.
Thanks again.

Dan persevered with difficult circumstances to obtain a reasonable offer for my unit. He worked extremely well with the Building Manager and gave me regular updates on his interactions with prospective buyers. I would recommend him highly.

When I purchased my new property at Mountain Creek, Dan Hawes was the sales representative and I found him to be very professional. His sales approach is not heavy handed as I had experienced with salespeople from other agencies. I would recommend Dan to any prospective seller because he responds to any question or issue raised; he is in constant contact with the buyer, seller, solicitors and tenant agents.

I have sold five properties in NSW and Adelaide and three in QLD, and Dan Hawes recently sold the last one for me. Compared with previous agents Dan has been the most capable and co-operative sales person with whom I have dealt with. Part of his dealings with this last sale was to keep me informed weekly about the market and enquiries and the sale was quick.
