First National Real Estate – REIA National Advisory Council
First National Real Estate traces its history to humble origins in regional Victoria.
Faced with increasing competition from international and local franchises in 1981, a group of independent agents agreed there was a need for an association to strengthen the effectiveness of their businesses and property marketing, without diluting their independence and local identity.
Determining that a Cooperative business model was the ideal foundation for a national network, fundamental goals were defined, chiefly surrounding the ability for members to maximise customer benefits, refer business to one another, retain independence, and to consolidate the best real estate agents into one group.
Over three subsequent decades, First National Real Estate has grown to the third largest network in Australia by market share. Estate agents remain integral to the management process to this day, and the company’s Board is comprised solely of members.
