Cameron & Elise

Tony was wonderful in the process of selling my property! He was open and honest about where it should sit in the market and what I should expect in return which allowed the process to be stress free. In the end it only took Tony a day and half to find the right buyer for the property and I couldn't be more thrilled of the outcome! I would highly recommend Tony for all and future real estate endeavours.

Brittany

Tony did a fantastic job selling our house. His communication was amazing along with his expertise, care and skill. He was always available and I could not recommend him more highly. In addition he got the job done with the house sold in a week for a great price! Many thanks

Ken & Kath

I found Andrew to be down to earth and straight to the point. I would recommend Andrew on his professionalism and integrity.

Luke & Angelica

I am extremely pleased with all Geoff has done to sell our home. I would highly recommend him to anyone on the coast who is looking for a real estate agent. Not only did Geoffrey sell our property in a very short period of time but he also got a figure $$$$$$ that was beyond our expectations. I would most definitely seek his services if selling a property again.

Sincere thanks Michael for the time, effort and market expertise in the selling of our home. Your genuine interest, thorough and intelligent marketing strategies and consistent communication with us, in regard to advertising, open homes and feedback from inspections alleviated so much of the stress which often surrounds this experience. Your goodwill and commitment to ensuring a smooth transition continued until we had actually vacated our home. Thanks so much for enabling our next adventure to begin!

Joanne & Dallas

We highly recommend Tony and the services of First National Terrigal! From our first enquiry Tony was very responsive with great communication and from first viewing through to contract exchange could not have been more professional. We would not hesitate to use Tony's services in the future.

Robert & Karen

Simon Hayes worked tirelessly to achieve a great result on the sale of our property. We couldn't be happier with the service we received from him. We have no hesitation in recommending him to our family and friends.

Darrell & Cathy

My wife and I moved from Sydney in May 2017 to relocate to the Central Coast in May 2017. Over the past four decades we have bought and sold a number of houses and set out to find a house which would be our home, necessitating looking at many houses and negotiating with Real Estate agents. Although most of these agents fulfilled their duties, a few stood out above the rest.

After looking at many houses and how they met our criteria for our new home we found the property at No 30 Wairakei Road, Wamberal. On the first Open House we met Mr Simon Hayes from First National Real Estate at Terrigal. Simon, from the moment that we met him, was easy to talk to, also his demeanour impressed us.

We attended all of the open house inspections and had the need to call upon him on other occasions to qualify certain aspects of the sale and of the property. On all occasions he was very obliging and went out of his way to provide us with all information required.

We are both extremely happy with our dealings with Simon and First National Real Estate at Terrigal and would recommend him to any person intending to purchase a property listed with his agency.

John & Lee

Michael was always contactable and easy to deal with, we found him to be honest and worked for all parties involved. Would recommend this agent whether your selling or buying.

Sophie & Aaron

Tony Pilon has been our go to for information and knowledge about the market in our pocket of Terrigal. He has lived, breathed and worked in the area we live and love for as long as I can remember. A couple of months ago he said "we have a house coming on the market and I think you'll buy it" come auction time we decided this house was ours and didn't want to let it go. Tony knew our position financially and our desires in a home. Therefore during the auction process he knew where we stood and guided us to buying victory over 7 other registered bidders who were hungry for this piece of Terrigal's finest. Throughout the whole process, even the night after purchasing he counselled us as a caring and understanding person. Not just an agent. The different hats these guys wear is just amazing. The best things about Tony are his caring family orientated attributes while having foresight and knowledge about the buyer, seller and market. Tony puts the REAL in realestate

Stuart & Kerry-Anne

Andrew's a good guy. He knows his job. He's customer focused. A pleasure to work with.

Stephen & Vikki

Jaime came to our house on Monday afternoon, we signed contracts, then photographs were taken on the Wednesday (complete with the use of drone), we were live on the internet Thursday, 2 open houses on the Saturday and SOLD on the Sunday!!!
We could not be happier with our result.... a street record!
I would love to recommend Jaime to any person considering selling their house, especially if you want an agent who is down to earth and honest.

David Yarnold

The unit I bought through him was bought for investment and I am renting it out .Simons team were great ,they were that good im letting them manage my property . So finally I must say, I would recommend Simon Hayes to anyone.

As a buyer, I found Michael Clayton very helpful and approachable with a commitment to delivering a high quality of service.

Michael made the whole process of selling our property ( while living overseas) stress free. He was always helpful, professional, and communicated with us almost daily to keep us informed. He is a good negotiator and we would certainly use him as an agent again .

George & Deb

Andrew's approach was friendly and professional. He has a great understanding of the market and approached buyers who he thought might love this property as much as I do. Andrew was very understanding and thoughtful, and contacted me earlier than expected after our open home. I would definitely recommend Andrew to anyone selling a home.

Jason & Lisa

We had the pleasure to deal with Jamie on the purchase of our investment property. Jamie was able to match us with exactly what we were looking for. Jamie's communications skills and friendly, yet professional manner is second to none. With expert knowledge of the area and business sense Jamie is Terrigal and the Central Coast leading agent. It has been such a pleasant experience given that Terrigal is one of the hot spots on the Central Coast. Thank you once again Jamie!

Andrew & Sara

Jamie is super professional and 100% committed to achieving the best result he can for his vendors. I'll definitely use him again.

Debbie & Andy

Jamie Goddard was our listing agent in the recent sale of our home. From the very first contact, Jamie was extremely informative with what was to happen & kept us so all the way through. He was very considerate to our needs for everything, including inspection times with personal follow ups each time. Jamie's knowledge & client base in the terrigal area brought us high interest from the first pre- inspection & we believe he worked very hard to achieve our sale price over & above our expectations. We can not thank him enough for the whole process!

Debbie Cole

Tony has been great to deal with. He has been helpful and professional with helping us buy our home

Michael Clayton provided a highly professional service.  His extensive knowledge of local real estate, his direct, no nonsense approach and his regular briefings led to a smooth and successful selling process.
 

Louise

Jamie your care, courtesy, sound advice and the friendly and efficient way in which you conducted all our communications gave me great confidence in your ability to gain the best possible sale of my property.

Shilla

April and I found Tony to be the best type of real estate agent you could ask for. He is genuine, hard working, honest and reliable. Most importantly we got the price we needed. At times we found he was more concerned about us getting the best price for sale of the house than we were. He kept us fully informed about progress and was always on time and responded to our questions. I am quite confident that if you spoke to the buyer (and potential buyers) for our house they would also agree. I would highly recommend Tony to sellers and buyers alike.

Andrew & April

Thank you Andrew for your swift and professional service.
We are very excited about our purchase.

Rosalie & Rochelle

Simon is a charming young man who knows what he is doing. He keeps you informed exactly what is going on. We changed agents mid campaign, because what we were doing didn't work. My first thought was then to get in touch with Simon, who we've known for a long time as he's given valuations on our property in the past. Once we sorted out the legalities he ran the campaign extremely well and sold our house within a week. You can't ask more than that. Thank you Simon

Gordon

Simon was an absolute pleasure to deal with. His communication was second to none keeping us continually updated through the process. Simon was understanding of our time and family commitments and worked hard to schedule inspections and open homes at convenient times. We are thrilled with the result Simon achieved and look forward to working together again in the further. We highly recommmend Simon and his team.

Lisa

I’d like to thank Andrew McBride and the team at First National Real Estate Terrigal for your absolute professionalism and effort in coordinating the sale of our apartment. This is the third time your expertise has delivered a successful result for us and your market knowledge, regular feedback and contact via phone and email whilst we were overseas was highly commendable.
We have no hesitation in recommending Andrew and the team, as all three results achieved a maximum result in a short period of time.
 
Your efforts are much appreciated​
 

Craig & Coralie

I would like to formally thank First National for the sale of my property at 1/9 Port Jackson Road, Terrigal NSW. A BIG thank you to your sales agent Michael Clayton for his expert execution and handling of the sale.

I would highly recommend Michael to other vendors or purchasers.

Gail

This is my second acreage I've bought off Andrew in 12 months and both times he has tried his best to get the best deal for the vendor and buyer. He's straight to the point and will always try his best to resolve any questions asked of him. Andrew is a well-known agent of his town and I only hear great things about him. He is the most honest real estate agent I've met and that's quite rare, great work Andrew.

Daniel Tullipan

We found Michael to be very professional and enthusiastic in all our dealings with him. He worked to secure a favourable result in a minimum time frame. We were kept well informed of how the sale was progressing and Michael was happy to meet with us out of hours to update us.

David & Melinda

Simon could not do enough for us even though we were not paying his fee. He was excellent to deal with and I would highly recommend him for anyone wishing to purchase. Simon was excellent!

Louise

I'm happy to offer this testimonial for Andrew McBride and the team at First National Real Estate as they have provided exceptionally good service.  I signed with Andrew on Tuesday and by Friday my unit was sold and for more money. I couldn't be happier. Prior to signing with First National I had spent months with another agent, open homes every weekend, lots of inspections to finally have a sale that fell over.

If I had to rate Andrew out of 10 he's an 11. Thank you so much.
 

Sue

Simon provided exceptional communication to us as vendors and always kept us informed each and every step of the way. We were extremely pleased with achieving our sale price and believed in Simon 100% in allowing for the process to achieve our goal. His consistence in his feedback and advise with no pressure throughout the sale made us feel very reassured we had made the right discussion in choosing Simon as our agent. I would highly recommend First National Real Estate Terrigal & Simon if you are thinking of selling.

Thanks to Andrew McBride and his team at First National Real Estate. We had a wide choice of agents to get this property sold.

Jamie & Andrew are not your typical salesmen or real estate agents. They are super friendly, very personable and have extensive market knowledge that produces great results.
We have used their expertise on 3 occasions and achieved highly successful outcomes with each sale. Without pushing a hard sell to obtain a listing or a sale, they worked diligently on our behalf the whole time. Consultation and feedback is excellent, timely and proactive.
For our recent sale, the marketing campaign was tailored to optimize our property and we thought Jamie and Andrew truly over delivered achieving a fantastic result. We highly recommend them along with the fabulous staff at First National Real Estate Terrigal.
 

Peter & Judy

We have no hesitation to recommend your services to any friends/ acquaintances who are considering entering into the real estate market. We wish all the best for the continued success of First National.
 

Geoff & Shirley

From the very first inquiry, working with Simon has been extremely professional and easy. Simon took the time to walk us through each step (we were first time sellers and had no idea) and answer our inquires. Constant and open communication turned a stressful situation into an easy one and our home was sold within 2 weeks! Such an amazing result! We couldn't recommend Simon and the team at First National Real Estate Terrigal highly enough.

Jessica Henley

Andrew and the team at First National were a pleasure to deal with from the first moment I walked into their office. At every point in the process from considering selling, to selling and now to sold, Andrew and his team were able to confidently answer any questions I had and guide me through the entire process smoothly. I am extremely thrilled with the end result which was a quick sale and a great price.

Heather Jolly

We have been extremely impressed with the service offered by First National Terrigal. A strong team with dedication to their job and clients. They offered guidance and honest advice throughout the purchasing process and at no time did we feel 'left out of the loop'. We would certainly recommend them to anyone buying or selling a house.

Tes Amos

To Jamie and his team at First National Terrigal.        

We decided to sell our house of 36years and being of retirement age we needed to down size and move on to the next exciting stage of our life. We were recommended to First National Terrigal. We were impressed and accepted what they had to offer in how to promote our home for sale and pricing. Jamie steered us through 6 weeks of open houses which at our age can be stressful. Jamie remained encouraging & honest & confident and managed to achieve an offer to suit both parties. He is also helping us with the purchase of our new home .We can recommend most highly Jamie Goddard and his team to any one with a simular story as us. Well done Jamie.   All the Best

Pam & Ed Felton
