... a few comments from our satisfied clients....

Strong Market Knowledge:
We used First National as our agent due to Maureen Fowler's reputation in town. She is highly regarded as the Number 1 agent and came recommended by friends whose home she had sold in Witchcliffe. We were not disappointed. Within five weeks of advertising, she had sold our home. This was a great relief as we were moving interstate. Maureen showed a lot of empathy, her knowledge of the market was very strong, she was wise and gave good advice, we always felt we were in good hands. We have no hesitation in recommending Maureen to future home sellers or buyers. She was a pleasure to deal with. Ms P Close & Mr D Jeffrey

Extremely Professional
Maureen Fowler was extremely professional in dealing with my property purchase. She was always reliable, punctual and provided any information I asked for... I have already referred a friend to Maureen... This friend has already told me she is very impressed with Maureen's professional manner. I believe Maureen to be equally professional in either buying or selling property as either case she would have the clients interests at heart. 
V Winham

Bent over backwards for us
Maureen could not have been more helpful throughout the entire experience. Maureen is professional and friendly and we really felt she 'bent over backwards' for us. The start to end process with Maureen was seemless. L Tate

A joy to work with
Maureen is a joy to work with..... she remained focused and persistent in moving us forward and reaching each milestone in a timely and satisfactory manner. In addition, Maureen was always on hand with help and advice when we were unsure. At every stage, Maureen and the team at First National worked tirelessly to bring this purchase to a very satisfactory conclusion... Thank you Maureen, John and everyone at First National.
M Moulding & C Squire

Professional & easy to communicate with
Quick sale, professional and easy to communicate with. Thanks for the great service. G & L Bottomley

Excellent Service
Maureen Fowler provided an excellent service to us over a long period... she helped us narrow down the range of properties we were interested in and then arranged several inspections on the same day, mindful of the fact that we had the drive down to Margaret River from Perth... we found a wonderful property and are very appreciative of all Maureen's efforts. Mr I Kerr

Professional & Honest
Maureen was great. We recently purchased an investment property (and) Maureen was very professional and honest in her dealings with us. Maureen responded quickly to our enquiries and gave us good advice. 
Mr & Mrs Oosthuizen

Went the extra mile
Maureen Fowler provided me an excellent service - and I felt she went the extra mile and made me feel like I was the only client on her books. Together we were able to secure my perfect home as she knew exactly what I was looking for and found it. Ms T Cordwell
Thoroughly Impressed
As a licensed agent of 21 years I am thoroughly impressed with both Maureen Fowler and Margaret River Real Estate First National. Maureen conducted the inspection, pre-purchase, contract to settlement effectively and professionally. In particular with regards to queries and observations, she went beyond the usual agents practise to establish the facts, making the purchase decision easier and with confidence. Mr C Baker

Personable and Professional
An overall pleasant and agreeable transaction. I've found Maureen extremely personable and professional. We would definitely use Maureen again. Dr & Mrs  Booker

Smooth and Joyful
Thank you Maureen and Team for your professional and efficient approach in assisting my mother to purchase her home. I couldn't ask for a better team in making the transition a smooth and joyful occasion.

Honesty & Integrity
We liked the time frame, 3 days to a sale. We liked the suggestions while we were getting the house ready to sell, to make it more saleable. We liked the team approach to the sale. We like Maureen's "No bullshit" approach - honesty & integrity. Mrs C Putt

Beautiful New Home
Maureen, thank you so much for being so patient in finding our beautiful new home. I have my dream kitchen and Colin has his shed. Mr & Mrs Uren

A Pleasure to Deal With
The reason why we used First National is mainly due to Maureen Fowler.  We have had the pleasure of dealing with Maureen on a number of occasions and she has always been a pleasure to deal with. She always acts in your best interests and keeps you informed of what is happening and we couldn't be more pleased with the end result. Mr P Brown

Sold So Quickly
Many thanks for getting our vacant land on Bottlebrush Drive sold so quickly and with no hassles. I guess we really decided to go with First National as we have known Maureen Fowler for many years and are confident with her dealings, that's not to say that she is one of a team of sales persons that are confident in their job and act professionally, looking after the seller's best interest. We certainly wouldn't hesitate about approaching First National in the future when required. A job well done THANKS! Mr & Mrs Hadley

Very Happy With The Service
We are very happy with the service Maureen Fowler gave us.  She kept us updated at all times and was always happy to take our calls when we had a question. We would happily deal again in the future. Mr & Mrs B Cameron

Works Extremely Hard
What can I say. If you want someone to sell your property, then Maureen is your person.  She is knowledgeable and works extremely hard to get the right result.  I couldn't recommend her highly enough. Mr & Mrs P Brown

Super Efficient and Accommodating
From the very beginning Maureen has been super efficient and accommodating with her time over Easter and other long weekends. Maureen and her assistant have made the sale smooth for both of us and her seller and our now tenants. Helping us to use reputable and price efficient local trades and get great results. We would happily recommend Maureen to prospective customers as she is a rare gem with rare qualities. S Birchall & C Woolven

Timely Manner
... Maureen provided us with all the information we required in a timely manner.  She consistently kept us updated. Mr McCaw & Ms Mather

Expertise and Professionalism
We feel fortunate to have had Maureen helping us purchase our first home. Maureen went to extra lengths to assist us in our short time frame with viewing properties.  She was flexible with times and very organised with all required information ... As we were purchasing our first house and had no previous experience with such a complicated process, we found that we could approach Maureen with any queries and problems we were facing. She went far and beyond to give us peace of mind by looking after all aspects of the settlement for us and keeping us informed and up to date at all times. Maureen's local knowledge was very impressive and we believe that through her expertise and professionalism we have secured the best possible purchase for us at this time in our lives. Thank you very much Maureen. Mr & Mrs M Savage

Absolute Pleasure
It was an absolute pleasure to work with Maureen.  She was very professional, clear and concise with her delivery of information, whilst at the same time being warm. Maureen was also fantastic and sympathetic of this being my first house sale and helping me through the process. Her feedback was always prompt and very clear, particularly helping me to drop the price a little. Kim was also lovely to deal with and also very professional. I'm glad I decided to use First National. Ms S Muntz

Accessible and Courteous
After having used the services of another real estate agent for some 12 months, I engaged Maureen. I found her to be direct, honest in her assessment of the property, accessible and courteous. Not surprisingly she found a buyer within a few weeks of the listing, no doubt down to her attributes referred to above. I would have no hesitation in recommending Maureen to anyone else seeking the services of a real estate agent in the Margaret River region. Anonymous

Extremely Approachable
Buying my first house I was obviously unaware and uneducated about a lot of things.  Maureen was really informative, helpful and professional with everything I needed, or needed to know.  She was easily contactable, even out of business hours. I found Maureen extremely approachable and friendly. I would recommend her to anyone. Mr N Fish

Warm and Friendly
We found Maureen to be both warm and friendly, whilst also being professional and efficient. We were kept well informed of all stages of purchasing the land. We would definitely recommend Maureen to friends and she would be the first point of contact if we ever have any future real estate matters. Mrs L Gouws

Very Much Appreciated
I would like to say how very much I appreciated Maureen's follow up in ensuring that I moved into a house that was clean and comfortable. I would thoroughly recommend both Maureen and First National Margaret River to anyone looking for first class professional real estate service. Ms M Whitehead

Intrinsic feel for the market
Since purchasing a first property through Maureen in 2003, we have bought and sold a number, including residential and commercial properties throughout Margaret River. In one recent experience, I decided to ignore her opinion, only to find (later) that she was right all along. In that sense, I believe Maureen has an intrinsic feel for the market and for the best means of arriving at a satisfactory conclusion. Recently, when we had a property to sell, we took it to Maureen, believing that she was the person most likely to obtain a result within a reasonable time frame. That confidence was fully satisfied and we have Maureen to thank for seeing it through. B Spitteler

We engaged Maureen to help us find a home. She quickly appreciated our requirements and did not waste our limited time on properties that would not suit. Throughout the negotiations she showed complete professionalism and gave us helpful and honest advice. In a word, Maureen was brilliant. We would recommend her to anyone. Mr & Mrs Fryer

Open & Honest
Very pleased with the open and honest communication through the sales process. I found Maureen to be consistent and could be relied on for advice... I would appoint Maureen again to look after my real estate needs. I would recommend her services to others. Mr P Kingston

Extremely Helpful
Maureen was extremely helpful... She was very knowledgeable and always quick to answer our questions. We won't hesitate to use Maureen and First National in the future and are happy to recommend both to anyone needing real estate advice. Thanks Maureen and team. Mrs J Morrell
Exceptional Service
Maureen gave exceptional service and went above and beyond what's required.  Arranging a morning tea to meet the neighbours and helping out with small issues after we moved in. Maureen was helpful, always on time, followed everything up and kept us informed through the process. Moving in your 80's can be stressful but Maureen made the transition as smooth as possible. We thoroughly recommend Maureen to anyone thinking about buying or selling a property. Mrs D Mangili

Experience and Professionalism
Maureen was the first person we thought to contact when we were considering selling our Margaret River property. We have worked with Maureen on two other occasions and always had a high regard for her experience, professionalism and extensive knowledge of the Margaret River property market. We would not hesitate to recommend Maureen and the First National team when buying and selling. Mr I McFarlane & Ms H Bourke


Maureen Fowler
Goes the Extra Mile

Kim was fantastic when I recently purchased my property. Kim has a wide knowledge of the local area from being a long term resident of Margaret River and I value her advice and input. She constantly stayed in communication with me and kept me up to date on everything through the whole process. Kim definitely made the process easier for me and I am glad I had her as my agent and would definitely use her again in the future. Ms D Marshall

Beyond our expectations
I cannot speak highly enough of Kim and I recommend her to anyone. The professionalism and courtesy we received from Kim was beyond our expectations. Her general knowledge of the area and real estate is amazing and she was able to connect with us immediately to understand our needs. Through the entire process we really felt that we could trust Kim and she had our best interest in mind. Buying a house in Margaret River from Perth is not easy but Kim made the whole experience a great one. J Koontz

The Ideal Estate Agent
Kim proved to be the ideal estate agent - enthusiastic, reliable and always ready to answer questions. When the sale was complete she continued to offer support and advice and we would have no hesitation in recommending her to friends. J & V McCann

Very Happy with Service & Attention
We were very happy with the service and attention Kim gave to the sale of our property and would use her services again on future sales. J Hayes

Highly Recommend
Buying my first house was quite a daunting thought but Kim took the time to explain everything to me and took me step by step through the whole process keeping me well informed. I would highly recommend Kim to anyone looking to buy or sell their home as her attention to clients need and requests could not be faulted. Ms L Clarke

Attention to Detail
I found my dealings with First National Margaret River and Kim Robins in particular, to be a most satisfactory experience. The transaction went through very smoothly and negotiations were conducted in a professional manner. Kim was conscientious in keeping me updated during the sales process and showed a friendly, personal interest.  She was always helpful and informative in clarifying my queries regarding local requirements and conditions. I was particularly impressed with Kim's attention to detail during the final inspection and that she was able to negotiate the replacement of a faulty entry door lock by the vendor after settlement. I am truly grateful for Kim's assistance in enabling me to purchase my wonderful new home. Ms L Blight

An Exceptional Result
With Kim's enthusiastic assistance, I recently found a beautiful home in Margaret River. Being new to the area, one of the things (beyond the property search itself) that I found most valuable was Kim's willingness to share knowledge and experiences of other local services. This was very helpful and generous with the property search. Kim displayed great listening skills, patience, creative thinking and gentle persistence. Overall she was delightful to deal with and produced an exceptional result. Ms S Thompson

Great Agent
Kim was a great agent who always had our best interest at heart. She would always keep us up to date with all information which made the process of selling our property much easier and pain free. I would recommend Kim to anyone looking to buy or sell a property. I know we will be in contact again for more business. Thanks again Kim. S & D Burnett

Helpful and communicative

Excellent Service
Professional service received with a good knowledge of houses available and understanding of client's needs. I was comfortable dealing with Margaret River Real Estate and Vicki Genge, as I know your business provides an excellent service from my previous dealings with both the sales staff and rental management team. I know you acted in my best interests and you displayed a commitment in looking after the sales procedure which was conducted in a smooth and efficient manner. I also realise that a business like Margaret River Real Estate is a complex one to operate. To be successful you would have a thorough understanding of the local real estate and the W.A. and Australian real estate scene. I will continue to deal with your business as I have no reason to go elsewhere for the above reasons. I would have recommended Margaret River Real Estate to various people. Thank you and Best Wishes in your business. M Williams

Ms A Clutton

Great Service
We were very happy to have Vicki as out property consultant. She was straightforward and honest.
Not only did Vicki provide us with a great service, she fully convinced us to have a second look at a property which we initially dismissed.  She understood our needs as a family and provided us with invaluable advice. Without Vicki we would probably still be on the hunt for that "perfect property" instead of settling into our new much loved home! Thank you! Mr & Mrs L Watts

Professional and Friendly:
I have found the First National Real Estate Office and in particular Craig Bamford to be extremely professional and friendly to deal with. His service and advice have been fast, accurate and efficient and with more than a little local knowledge sprinkled in to make the process of locating and purchasing real estate in this beautiful but competitive market location, Margaret River, a real pleasure. I believe Craig and the First National team are good at what they do because they really enjoy what they do and it shows. Mr E & Mrs P McLagan

An absolute ripper
Craig has been an absolute ripper, if he is as good at surfing as he is at real estate, he should be on the world circuit. We would gladly recommend him to anyone hoping to buy or sell. Garry & Ray

Impressed by (Craig's) honesty and efficiency
A successful transaction does not occur by chance. Success, in most Real Estate transactions, is entirely attributed to the professionalism of a Real Estate Agent. Craig Bamford, you are a professional agent. You never influenced me, you listened attentively and acted on it. I was impressed by your honesty and efficiency. Communicating with you was easy and effortless. N Marsella

Fantastic to deal with
Craig was fantastic to deal with. His timing was prompt, his conversation was warm and he listened. D Watson

The benchmark professional
Craig has been the benchmark professional from the day we made an enquiry. Craig's knowledge and experience provided a welcome buffer of calm when things on our side weren't going perfectly to plan. Craig was the perfect facilitator for everyone to experience the smoothest process with minimal stress. Craig responded quickly to every contact be it trivial or urgent and he showed consisitently warm character and respect at every point. We are very grateful to have worked with Craig through this process and would not hesitate to recommend him to others.

Patient & Knowledgeable
We were both happy to have the benefit of Craig's expertise and advice in the selling of our property. He was most patient and knowledgeable in Real Estate sales in general and in particular with advice on presentation for our property. The service provided and the outcomes achieved were very good. Each viewing was followed up with information and advice where necessary. We were happy to be in a partnership with Craig in this venture for the sale of our much loved home. We would also like to thank the other members of his team for the final outcome. We would certainly recommend Craig, his personality and expertise to anyone needing to sell property. Mr & Mrs Thwaites

Thorough attention to detail
In negotiating a sale in Real Estate the stakes are pretty high, usually the biggest investment in a person's life. Thorough attention to detail is crucial. In this there is confidence with the experience of Craig and his team. 
Y Ross

Confident and honest
Our experience with First National, in particular your agent Craig Bamford, was excellent. Craig is a straightforward, personable and experienced Margaret River agent who made himself available at all hours to competently move our transaction forward. Our offer on the land was put forward confidently and we were dealt with honestly. I have no hesitation in recommending First National Margaret River on the basis of our experience. Anonymous

Craig Bamford handled all of our matters regarding listing, advertising, buyer visits and offer negotiations.

Helpful, honest and transparent
Craig was very approachable, easy to deal with and extremely efficient throughout our purchase. He made himself available at all hours and answered our numerous questions. He was well informed on the area's sale history and the property's building options. It was a pleasure dealing with someone so passionate about the area. Craig was helpful, honest and transparent throughout the sale. We wouldn't hesitate to use him again. Courtney and Fernanda Gray

Most Appreciative
We dealt with Craig Bamford from start to finish, both my husband and I were very happy with both the information and service he provided. He spent a lot of time with us and answered all our questions when we first looked at the block plus provided us with follow up material, which we requested, in a very timely manner. What I was most appreciative about is he wasn't pushy or trying to force a sale. We would use Craig again if we are lucky enough to buy more property down south. Lastly we were also happy with Craig's recommendation for a settlement agent, they were fantastic. Ms K. Vella-Jones

Expectations Exceeded
Any expectations we had were exceeded in our recent property purchase with First National, Margaret River. We found our sales consultant, Craig Bamford to be both diligent and respectful. Our lifestyle meant at times one of us was not in Australia. Although the process was daunting, Craig was mindful of our circumstances, he helped with informative detail and time frames whilst providing much needed reassurance with true professionalism. The biggest compliment we can pay to First National & Craig Bamford from this experience is our personal recommendation & future patronage which we would do without hesitation.

Craig facilitated the whole process exceptionally well.  His local real estate knowledge is unquestionable, while his integrity, professionalism, negotiating skill and affable character enabled the sale and subsequent settlement to be expeditious and seamless, with complete transparency.  A win/win for vendor and purchaser alike. A pleasure doing business with Craig and First National, an excellent service! Mr & Mrs D Moran

Always recommend him
We have always used Craig for every purchase that was listed with an agent in Margaret River.
Craig was recommended to us by Margaret's Beach Resort, when we were looking to buy a house. We ended up buying one of his listings and have always recommended him to friends. We wouldn't consider any other agent and prefer to see such a conjunctional with Craig in the picture than list another agent, based on our trust in him, his ability to communicate well and close a deal without too much fuss. Mr & Mrs Horak

We would like to thank Craig for the excellent service he provided. We could not fault it. He was always friendly, courteous and professional. Buying a home in Margaret River has been a smooth process and we would not hesitate to recommend Craig to others. Mr & Mrs B Lane

Craig has been extremely helpful during our house hunt. We changed our minds quite a bit over the type of property we were looking for, yet Craig was always patient and forthcoming with new listings.

Craig is very  professional yet still approachable, he made us feel like we were being guided through the whole process. We look forward to more property purchasing and selling with Craig in the not too distant future. Mr & Mrs Foulsham

Experience and market knowledge hard to beat
I purchased my first Margaret River property through Craig in 1998. Since then I have purchased another six properties, all of which involved Craig's assistance. Now after a period of site development and subdivision I have sold eight properties, again each one was sold by Craig. I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone in the property game in Margaret River. His experience and market knowledge would be hard to beat. Mr W Lines

Professional Service
Craig Bamford provided us with professional service throughout the whole sale process. His knowledge of the Margaret River region is outstanding. He managed to sell our home without it even going on the open market. Well done Craig, you are an asset to Margaret River First National Real Estate. Ms A Love

Friendly, helpful and very knowledgeable
It was a pleasure to deal with Craig.  He was always friendly, helpful and very knowledgeable about the house we were buying and the surrounding area. We would definitely consult Craig and Margaret River Real Estate for any other property transactions in the area. Mr S West

Our dealings with First National Margaret River, especially our sales rep Craig Bamford, were outstanding.  Due to the market constraints in the Margaret River region our property did take a long time to sell but he never shirked his duties and responsibilities in marketing, opening the property for inspections and generally keeping us informed in a timely and efficient manner. Craig also went above the call of duty with some matters while marketing our property, nothing was too much bother.
The process after we accepted an offer on the property was excellent ... I would recommend this company and especially Craig as a sales consultant to market and sell other properties. Mr J Holloway

Always Willing to go that extra mile
...Craig was always enthusiastic and helpful, always willing to go that extra mile. He was meticulous in keeping me informed of everything that was going on and his efforts never flagged. His deep local knowledge was particularly helpful... Craig sold this house to us 10 years ago and I had no hesitation in placing its recent sale in his hands, remembering his professionalism and work ethic from when we purchased....  I will always recommend him when the opportunity arises. Mrs J Matthews

Smooth Transaction
Our experience with the purchase of our property was very pleasant and handled very smoothly. We needed time to look at fire hazard ratings and that time was given to us. The company had a good understanding of properties/land in the area and were able to guide us with negotiations. We would have no hesitation in recommending your company to friends or anyone else who may need a real estate agent.  Mr & Mrs Ashworth

Easy and Enjoyable
My partner and I found it an easy and enjoyable experience purchasing our block through this company. Our questions were always answered with background knowledge and research and our phone calls always returned. We would highly recommend this business to our friends and family. Mr J O'Neil & Ms M Connell

Thank you very much
Your company will be the first and possibly the only one contacted when we are in the market for another property and/or selling a property. It truly has been a great experience. Mr C & Mrs N Holmes

Buy and Sell
We have used First National on previous occasions to both buy and sell properties. We have always been very satisfied with the service of the office and would recommend First National to others. Ms J Jotta

Great Service
We had great service with the purchase of our home. Very professional and friendly, would definitely use Margaret River Real Estate in future. Mr R & Mrs M Dallas

We experienced an efficient, professional and personable service. Mr Dunn & Ms Corr

Persistence, dedication and total involvement was the catalyst in a successful sale. Bismark Investments Pty Ltd


Initially, the idea of buying a block of land close to my favourite surf break was simply that, an idea.
However, once the decision to purchase was made, the intentions for a quick and easy sales process were set. Realistically, working in Darwin with very limited communication services could and should have made the task difficult. The truth is, between Margaret River Real Estate and my choice of banking and settlement agents, the process was not only easy but enjoyable and yes, exciting!

What a great team

Excellent Service:
Megan provided excellent service throughout the process.  She is a most caring and considerate sales person.  She has the ability to provide for both seller and buyer and ensure that each party feels that she is endeavouring to work in their best interests. When it comes to rural properties, there are another whole set of skills which Megan has.  She was always willing to take considerable time and we felt that she went over and above what could be expected of most sales people.  Her after sales service has also been extraordinary which proves her dedication and commitment to the humans behind the deals. R McLeon & A Cohen

Megan was an exceptional Real Estate Agent for us! She guided us through the purchase in a professional and helpful manner. Megan was always available to answer questions and made the entire process easy. G Owens & M Bubic

Went above and beyond
I would like to thank Megan for all her expertise, patience and understanding with the task of selling my house. Megan went above and beyone and I appreciate all she has achieved... Megan dealt with every situation in a quick and very professional manner. I highly recommend Megan. S Bacich

Strongly recommend her services
Megan assisted us in our search and eventual purchase of an investment property in Margaret River. From the very first phone conversation, Megan was friendly, honest and helpful. It was a joy to work with her. We would strongly recommend her services as a real estate agent. P Pedersen

I could not ask for a better person than Megan
I could not ask for a better person than Megan to help me in every aspect of selling my home. Her advice was solid and she was always available to help me in every way and often went out of her way to do so. Thank you, dear Megan! Your were - and are - just great! R Edwards

Interested, energetic and a lovely person
Megan was not only an interested, energetic Real Estate Agent, she was also a lovely person which made listing the house with her a piece of cake really. She made my life easy, notifying me of all things relevant at once and coming up with good selling points and advice... I would be more than happy to utilise Megan's services again if the need ever arose. J Jones

First Class
Megan was a pleasure to deal with. From the time we first met, through to the market prices provided and the whole company inspecting our house, we had a good feeling the selling process would be a pleasurable one. The communication was outstanding, and overall the whole selling process was first class. We would use Megan Booth again for all future transactions. G & K Garnish

Honest advice on market and pricing
We had total confidence in our agent, Megan Booth. Her feedback was always done in a professional manner and she was helpful and honest regarding market and pricing. I would recommend both First National and Megan to my friends and family. M & M Owens

Best Result for Us
We are very satisfied with the sale transaction. Our Sales Rep Megan Booth had a very professional approach to selling our Rural Property. Megan worked to provide a steady list of potential buyers through our property.... When the right buyer presented, Megan showed good judgement and negotiated well to get the best result for us. Well done Megan and the Company. Mr & Mrs Colyer

Friendly and Professional
Megan was friendly and professional at all times and worked hard to find the house I was looking for. I would recommend her to others. Mrs G Clarke

Above and beyond
We bought our house through Megan Booth and we knew when it was time to sell we would like to deal with Megan again. She is so lovely and friendly to deal with. She's always at the other end of the phone when you need her and we really appreciated her with this sale as she went above and beyond to help us with the purchase of our new house.  We ended up in a situation of having an estate agent from another real estate who we really did not like dealing with.  We had mentioned to Megan the issues we were having and even though she didn't need to, she stepped in and helped us with the purchase of our new house. I couldn't recommend Megan highly enough.  We like her friendly, honest manner and we appreciate that she doesn't play games like some agents.  As daunting as the process seems, Megan always seems to simplify everything and somehow make it seem relatively easy. Ms M Kelly

Excellent Outcome
Megan was very easy and helpful to deal with. She facilitated an excellent outcome for ourselves. She was professional every step of the way and communicated well with us. Mr T Howarth

I would like to thank her for the special effort she put in on my behalf. Mrs B Webster

Extremely Knowledgeable
We found Megan to be extremely knowledgeable in her field and were extremely satisfied.  Any queries we had in regards to our properties were handled promptly. Her wonderful personality made it a pleasure to work with her. We feel that we achieved the best prices in the current market, with both selling and purchase of our properties and would not hesitate in using First National again. L & S Prosser

Excellent Service

Helpful, reliable and honest:
I would love to share how wonderful John has been as the real estate agent whom I bought my house from. John has been extremely helpful, reliable and honest throughout this process. He is very knowledgeable about Margaret River, as I am new to the area, and he has given me much advice which I really appreciated. His manner is warm and patient, he was punctual for appointments we had and was not in a hurry to leave. A very nice man who has been a pleasure to do business with. T Pendragon

Professional & Positive
We would like to thank John and his support team for the successful sale of our home. John offered professionalism & positivity throughout the entire process. John was always friendly, easy to contact and willing to provide us with his valuable & completely honest advice. Most importantly, we thank him for his patience and support through an unexpectedly fast and involved settlement. M & R Brown

Excellent service
John provided excellent service throughout the entire process. He certainly made the sale of our block no stress and as hassle-free as possible. He provided us with regular updates ... keeping us informed of any interest in the block by potential buyers. This was important as when a serious offer was made we were prepared to make an informed and considered decision quickly..... John provided us with his knowledge, experience and objective view for us to consider in our deliberations. John is certainly an asset to First National Margaret River. 
M & B Caudle

Easy to talk to & very professional
John was very easy to talk to, very professional and went out of his way to make the process smooth for both parties. He kept us upto date throughout the sale process and confirmed when settlement would go through so we were not kept guessing. He checked the house was in good working order for the buyers (this did not happen with the company that sold us the house) and arranged a pre-sale check with the buyers just before settlement... (this also did not happen when we bought the property). He is very knowledgeable and I trust his feedback / recommendations as he seems to know the market very well. I would definitely recommend him to prospective buyers or sellers... Big thumbs up to him. K Cheah

A pleasure to work with
John's experience in Real Estate meant that the process was both considered and efficient. He was available to discuss each aspect of the process as it arose and completely focused at the crucial point of agreeing on a final price with the buyer. John is a pleasure to work with. A Hawthorne & J Robison

Very Professional Service
John was great to deal with. He provided a very professional service and was careful to accurately explain all aspects of the sale. John showed a lot of patience throughout the process and we are very happy with the purchase of our new home. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend John's services to anyone.

No hesitation in recommending
I would like to take this opportunity to thank all the staff at First National, especially John Fiorentino, who went over and above in assisting myself and my daughter in the purchase of this property. I would have no hesitation in recommending First National Margaret River in the future. Mr M Holcroft

Happy to recommend
During our purchase I found First National (John Fiorentino) very helpful in finding the right land and the right price for me. He was quite easy to correspond to and showed interest in fulfilling our needs. He also acted promptly and efficiently in a quick buy which I requested. I'd be happy to recommend Margaret River Real Estate First National to any future clients. Anonymous

Thorough and Professional
We were very happy with John acting as our agent. He was very thorough and professional and we were satisfied with the end result. Mr & Mrs Wagner

Professional and helpful
We were very happy with our dealings with First National from beginning to end. We were kept informed all the way and felt our best interests were being served. John Fiorentino was professional and helpful and had a great knowledge of local real estate. Mr & Mrs Dixon

Friendly, Helpful and Professional
Margaret River First National was at all times friendly, helpful and most professional.
John Fiorentino did the negotiations with the Buyer and the Buyer's tenant with ease and efficiency. These negotiations were then explained to me in detail over many free cups of coffee from John.
The collective valuation was a very reasonable one and the price I was happy to accept for the house was achieved without prolonged bargaining. There was no pressure on me to change the advertised price or the final sale price. I plan to use Margaret River First National again. Mr T Gill

Very Fortunate
We realise we were very fortunate to sell our block in such a timely manner and we think this was due to the astuteness of John Fiorentino and his communication with his colleague Barry Granville.  Both agents were helpful and communicative at all time. Thanks guys for a timely and efficient transaction. Mr & Mrs Dixon

Recommend Buying or Selling
John always had a smile and a friendly manner at any time that I needed to met with him. I had a few legal issues to deal with and John always stayed calm and relaxed, which in turn made things easier for me. He dealt with myself and the seller with professionalism if any issues arose but would always have a sense of humour to make things enjoyable. I would recommend John to anyone thinking of buying or selling.
Kym Beesley

Friendly and Enthusiastic
John was very helpful throughout the entire process of buying our block. I have not brought a property before and he was very careful to explain everything properly and answer my questions. He always answered his phone or got back to me straight away and was always on time. He is a very friendly and enthusiastic bloke and I would certainly recommend him to anyone else that was planning to buy or sell a property. You are lucky to have him working for you. L Troup

Good Service
John was great right from the start, he was never pushy and he gave us good service. He made our purchase a very positive and pleasant dealing. Ms G Forward

Extremely Helpful and Patient
I found John to be extremely helpful and patient whilst dealing with the sale of my property.  He understood the situation completely and stuck it out for the long, long journey, finally achieving a sale that other real estate agents may have given up on. Thanks to all at First National and especially John. Ms H Grantis

Professional and Informative
We found John very warm and friendly, yet professional and informative. John kept us in the loop regularly about visitations to the property by prospective buyers or other entities needing to inspect or to advise their clients.
