We decided to invest in this property, having stayed there on a short visit to Yamba. As we reside in Papua New Guinea, we were reliant on First National to facilitate our purchase with our solicitor. We were more than satisfied with the service we received from a helpful and friendly team. We have no reservation in recommending David and his to to any prospective purchaser, seller or renter.

Thanks to Dave Grams, we had the best experience buying a property. It was the first time we bought real estate in NSW and he made the experience easy and enjoyable. He was more than happy to assist us with all our questions and went that extra mile to accommodate our requests and needs Thanks very much Dave. Hope to work with you again in the future.

First National Yamba has provided excellent service. They have been proactive in keeping us informed of progress with our purchase both by telephone and email. They have been friendly and informative in responding to our queries. In all, we could not have asked for better service and we look forward to our continuing relationship.

Dear Dianne and Justine
I just wanted to say thank you for arranging our accommodation again this year (six years in a row).
Also I would like to thank you for accommodating the guys from SeaCrest in the extra room , they were very impressed with your customer service.
All the guys had a great time and we will be back again next year around the same time for the seventh year.

The level service my wife and I received from David and Jo and the First National team in Yamba when selling our unit couldn't be faulted as we were kept in the loop throughout the sales process and the outcome achieved was very satisfactory

Will Warrick

We are writing to thank you for your help in securing the investment property that we recently purchased at Yamba.  We appreciated the friendliness and sincerity of our conversations with you and the frank manner in which you answered all of our questions, in terms that we could understand, and provided all of the information we needed to know about the property and the processes involved in it's purchase.  We felt confident in placing our trust in your advice.

Richard and I would like to acknowledge the enormous impact Shayne Richards has had on the successful operation of SeaCrest. She is wonderful in selling SeaCrest and also in the day to day management of the property. Nothing is too much trouble and she is always humorous, practical, responsive, and able to deal with both us as owners and also with the clients. Organising the team of trades and cleaners is like herding cats- but she does it with great effect. What a gem! I hope she is with you forever!

Susie & Richard Bunting

My testimonial could not be more glowing. First National (mostly in the person of Jo) has held my hand through all the wretched stages of this unneccessarily complex purchase. Without her I think I would have given up. I am extremely grateful for all the support, help and efficiency shown ... and if I have dealings in the property market again it’ll be 100% with First National Yamba.

Dear Dave
Thank you for doing an appraisal on my property 2 years ago.  I had no intention at that time to sell my property, which you were aware of. "No problem Wil" you said and supplied me with the appraisal. That was the moment I decided that if I ever were going to sell, you would be my agent.  I was/am very happy with your approach.  Keep it up, I sure will recommend you!

Wil Byker

David, a big thank you to you and your team for all your efforts and the "Gold Medal" outcome.

We were impressed with Dave Grams when we bought this property and didn't hesitate to seek his professional skills to sell now.

Bob & Teresa Honing

Dear David
We want to thank you,  and at the same time congratulate you and your Team at First National, for the professional and efficient way in which you handled the selling of our home, "Baravi".
At all times Bruce and I felt that we were given Premium Service.
Your dedication to service, and to reaching our goal for our home to be sold is second to none, and is to be admired!
The professional training that you and your Team receive is obviously first class - well done!

Val & Bruce Lamb

Thank you, Justine, for your assistance and for your time on our behalf.  I was impressed with your professional and service oriented approach, and I will be recommending you and your agency to our friends.

Steve Butler

Many thanks for passing on to me today your amply illustrated Routine Inspection Report on my property in Yamba. You, and First National Yamba, plus the tenants, are all to be congratulated for maintaining the house in such good condition on my behalf and I congratulate all concerned for that which is much appreciated.
With thanks and best regards.

Paul Brown

David, I have found you and your team to be open, honest and a pleasure to deal with. I would not hesitate using First National Yamba again for any future dealings.

Richard Almond

Our dream of living in Yamba was made a reality by the professional and friendly staff at First National Yamba.
Justine and her team immediately supported us in securing an excellent rental property during our relocation, after little response from other agencies, and ensured we settled in smoothly.
When it came time to purchase a house, David and the sales team skillfully identified a home that suited our family, and guided us through the sales process without fuss. Their goal was to fit a house to our lifestyle and needs, not just to sell a property. As a result our new home is ideal for our family to live and grow in this wonderful community and environment.
We exclusively recommend First National Yamba to our family and friends when buying, renting or holidaying in the Yamba area.

A quick note of thanks to Shayne for taking such great care in managing our holiday property ´Cooindah on the Water´. Shayne has both the technical and social skills that are needed to achieve the best results for our property. Sitting on the other side of the world, we couldn't imagine doing this without her ! Thanks and hope to see you soon in Yamba !!!

Shayne Richards has managed our property Angourie Blue 3 for over a decade. We have been absolutely delighted with the service provided. Shayne is extremely capable and efficient. In short, she is very good at her job. She is also a pleasant and likeable person. We consider ourselves very fortunate to have her looking after us and highly recommend her to anyone who wants to engage a true professional.
Note - I omitted to mention how good you are when the 'you know what' literally hits the fan!!!


Dave Grams, of First National Real Estate, sold my property in Yamba, NSW.  He shared with me his bird’s eye view of real estate and his demonstrated regard for honesty and courage allowed me to focus on the big picture, resulting in a great outcome for all parties involved.
He tailored the marketing to the diverse potential purchaser’s viewing the house, while maintaining a non-judgemental attitude in some stressful moments.  Dave’s practical assistance in dealing positively with a difficult problem was unexpected and much appreciated.
He used effective marketing strategies in a logical sequence that avoided internet over exposure. His timing was precise. 
Dave’s high level of professional competency was wisely backed by a happy office team. I would like to thank him for his hard work.
