We would highly recommend both Joanne and Kellie to anyone wanting to sell or buy a home. They both go above and beyond to help in all facets of purchasing your home.

As always you were very professional with very high standards. You made us feel confident and comfortable with the process. Extremly good at communicating with us also. All in all considering selling can be stressful, you did everything you could to make it a smooth transaction. Thankyou. Highly recommend your office.

Christine McDermott

We appreciated the very professional and co-operative attitude shown to us in selling our home and would certainly recommend First National Callala

Kim & Diane Callaby

From the first moment I spoke to Maddi, and then through regular contact with Jo - it was a comfortable, calm, happy experience. I just can't believe how lucky I am on every level - the house is beautiful and your support and friendship was amazing - Thanks. It can be a stressful time buying a house but I always felt supported and that nothing was too much trouble. Your calm approach made every decision easy.

Rema Grennan

We found the advice and support from both Kellie and Joanne so helpful at every step of the way. They both went beyond the call of duty. A massive thank you.

Pippa & Tony Quinn

A signnificant benefit was that you don't charge beyond your commission for advertising vacant land, which seems to be a comman practise nowdays by other agencies. Your claims that you had buyers on your books for our property was a reality and not just a marketing play, which we appreciated. 
Still can't believe it was sold within 2 hours of you recieving our contracts at the asking price. Definately a bench mark sale, thankyou.
Thank you Maddy for the lovely gift, it will sit proudly on show in our new home in Hervey Bay QLD

Kevin Stoked & Phyllis Wass

Our experience with First National was a pleasure. From our first phone call to First National to picking up the keys to our new property our experience with all staff was professional and friendly. Nothing was too much trouble for Maddy. She was always willing to help us with our requests. Thankyou for your help with our purchase to all of the staff we communicated with over the last couple of months.

Louise & Graeme Gill

Happy with how helpful all of the staff were. Any questions we had were responded to immediately. Good communication always. Would recommend to others.

Ellen & Glen Hanson

I was absolutely delighted with the service, honesty and integrity displayed by First National Callala. I would absolutley and thoroughly recommend them. 
I don't usually trust real estate agents but Joanne, Maddy and the team exceeded all expectations. I found them completely honest and reliable.
 

William Walker

We just wanted to thank you for selling our little house. 

In completing our contract with you, we'd like to provide some feedback:

Firstly, your updates and information flow were pitched correctly - not too much, nor leaving us wondering what was happening either.

Secondly and very importantly: We appreciate your honesty throughout and straight talking. Really. 

Thank you.

Victoria Dunne

We found the staff very helpful.
Nothing was any trouble with our recent experience relating to buying and selling our homes.
Thank you

J & B Waddell

Callala First National set the bar! - A highly professional group of ladies providing a service that goes beyond expectations...
Selling my home was not an easy decision. I had never sold a home before, so I had very little knowledge pertaining to the process that would lie ahead.

Joanne and her team provided a superior service that was well beyond my expectations, keeping me well informed and offering their guidance and support throughout the entire marketing and sale stages. Even when the chips were down Joanne dug deep to raise the stakes and keep me in the game...

I would highly recommend the services of Callala First National to anybody looking to buy or sell and I myself look forward to the day I call on them again to find me my home away from home...

Vickie Dally

From the moment we enquiried about a valuation, to the marketing and finally the settling, Joanne and her staff were in the forefront of the market. Their personal touch was 110% both now and in a previous purchase.

N & J Mele

Overall very happy with service all staff gave us. We are very happy with our purchase also. Would recommend your office to others.

Lynda Booth

I would be very happy to recommend this business. It was such a pleasure to have the opportunity to deal with Callala First National and I appreciate their understanding of my position and concerns at such a vulnerable time. I was most impressed with the whole service. So different to Sydney. Telephone calls and e-mails responded to immediately. 

Michele Bills

We bought through First National Callala, we sold through First National Callala. Couldn't find a better, honest and 'Fair Dinkum' Real Estate Agent!

Bob Lindsay

I have had the privilage of dealing with Callala First National on a number of occasions and have had nothing more than the upmost professionalism from the whole team.

17th March

Our Real Estate agent Kellie was so business-like and such a comfort from the moment she came to view the house. The whole business which we had worried so much about became a pleasant activity. We could not thank her enough for taking us through the sale so happily.

Margaret Walsh

We felt that Joanne went well above and beyond what was required. Offering to do the pre-settlement inspection was a major relief, for example. 
We look forward to seeing you now tht we are 'locals'. All of our friends are novitvated to find retirement houses now - we'll send them your way! Thanks heaps

Barry & Jeff

Joanne was a huge help in us purchasing a holiday home. Her assistance went far beyond what is usually offerred.

Tracey Arnold

JOB WELL DONE - THANKS BRIAN & TEAM

When we started to look at property in Culburra we viewed several properties with several agents. Then we viewed a property at First National through Brian. What a relief. Brian was so calm, relaxed and straight talking. 

When it came time to move on we contacted Brian. Again, no hype, no B.S, just a sensible discussion.

During the sale Brian informed us of many developments as they occured and kept communication flowing between all parties and solicitors, to ensure the sale went smoothly and quickly.

If you want to sell a house in Culburra Beach you must talk to Brian.

Murray Oastler

Jo and her staff were very accomodating and were able to give us an answer to all the questions we asked. Thank you

Sean & Alison

My daughter and I were treated with great respect and consideration of our wishes to buying a home. We would gladly recomment your services to others.

Wish I marketed my property with you guys years ago when the market was at it's best. Thank again.

When one is in the dark, inexperienced and fighting through the forest, it is so helpful to find someone to show you the path to the edge of the forest and sell your home or find the home for you, with every bit of help to make it so easy. Thanks gals, you did it so well and always with a smile.
