All our dealings with John Egan were at all times courteous. He went out of his way to make sure our buying process was as easy as it could be. He kept in touch through all the stages to make sure all was as it should be. Even when we had moved in he still contacted us to make sure we were happy.

From the first visit of John Egan to assess a likely price for my villa in Bomaderry he gave me hope for a good price but also emphasized a realistic price. As likely purchasers began to arrive he was able to point out the likely buyers. He was not pushy but gently nudged the buyers towards the benefits. My privacy and comfort was always considered and I was kept informed of all points of progress. Unbelievably the price asked was achieved. Also, whenever I phoned the office I was treated with courtesy and John Egan was meticulous in answering promptly to all calls and queries. I was more than satisfied, thank you. D Gallagher

First National Real Estate were very helpful when we were looking for a house. John Egan went out of his way to do things for us as we retired her at Bomaderry. John would let me know if something was going on. I would let friends know how helpful he was. Thank you for all your support. J Thirlwell

We would highly recommend him and would use First National again in a heartbeat. Thanks! M Corbin

In my recent purchase of a property in Bomaderry, I was very happy with the service of First National & in particular John Egan, who was consistently very pleasant, friendly & warm in his manner, as well as providing clear and accurate information about the property & purchase. I would highly recommend John's service & that of First National, who I found to be trustworthy in all the information imparted. C Davis

Firstly I would like to take this opportunity to thank both Amy and Nowra First National.

After dealing with many real estates in Nowra I could never find the one that did everything we wanted and delivered customer service. We were always 2nd priority. Well that was until we were referred to First National by a family member.

First National found us amazing tenants who looked after the property as if it were their own. All routine inspections were carried out with full reports and photos ( note the prior agents didn't provide this service to us). When we moved back into the property everything was perfect. Yards and gardens were just as we left them.

We look forward to working with First National Nowra again in the near future. J & P Watson

I was looking at moving from QLD to the coast NSW. After scanning the internet and found that Chris Tuminello had a large percentage of properties that suited me. I decided to visit to view 6 properties, Chris Tuminello guided me with great care and guidance in regards to my requirements. Chris kept me informed from day one until settlement. If unavailable to take call he would return call ASAP. I would highly recommend Chris and First National Real Estate without hesitation. B Potts

Dear Mr Rizzuto
In life there is not many occasions that warrants putting pen to paper to give thanks to a service that proves to be outstanding.
My wife and I have purchased and sold many properties thus we believe we are particularly qualified to offer an opinion on treatment we have received be members of the real estate industry.
In looking back on those occasions that we had dealings with individual agents to use one of me expressions overall they were "not worth a cold pie" with three notable exceptions your Chris we left with a feeling that this was a trustworthy person.
on the meeting that followed our first impression of trust was reinforced with the additional important ingredient of being sympathetic towards our wants. Let us say without doubt in the event of selling we would make a beeline to First National and seek out Chris.
Furthermore we would relate to any of our friends the level of service we have enjoyed by Chris Tuminello. Your Sincerely, J & V Katon

I would like to personally thank you for your outstanding service and reliability in handling our property transactions. It has been a pleasure for both Dawn and myself to have you handle the sale of our property. I thought that you might like to know that we choose you as our agent after we purchased the Unit in Purdie crescent. You displayed great honesty, integrity and a willingness to help out when we made that purchase. Now as the seller of our family home, we couldn’t have been happier.
You always followed up on what you said, and you continually keep in contact with us as situations changed. We really felt like you were looking after us. Thank you R & D Hill

I like to thank First National Nowra Real Estate in selling my home and the professionalism your team provided through this time. A very very special thank-you to Chris Tuminello for the wonderful work he did to sell my home. He was very professional and a person who is very approachable and has a great sense of humour, overall a very happy go lucky person who I must say is a GREAT ASSET to your team Anthony.
I like to also thank Melysse McAuliffe, for her wonderful work in organising tenants for me to rent the property. I'm sorry that I mucked her around, but at least First National did well, got a house sold and got a rental agreement done with the new owner, and I got a good price so we are all happy. I would recommend First National Nowra to anyone who is looking for a Real Estate Agent.
Once again thank you very much and I wish you and your family and the staff and their families, A Merry Christmas and a Safe and Happy New Year. J Pisani

We had the pleasure of working with Ben and First National when purchasing our new home. We found Ben to be really tuned in to our needs and preferences when viewing possible options. We also found that First National had a greater variety of options for us and that they were completely up to date with new possibilities and flexible about negotiating viewings. Ben went out of his way to ensure effective communication and helped us with a speedy purchase. He was supportive and helpful at all times and he would be our first port of call for any other house purchase. J Brown

We recently decided to sell our home in Worrigee. We looked around to try to find a Real Estate Agent who we would be comfortable with. Having dealt with a few Agents in the past & having found them wanting for a variety of reasons, we were looking for a number of things in this agent. I guess
first & foremost was honesty & integrity & mutual trust between the agent & ourselves.
We decided to call Chris Tuminello from your agency & get him to come around & have a chat with us. From the outset, Chris made us feel comfortable & confident that he would work for us & help us to realize the best price we could get from the sale. We signed with him & straight away we began to see the reasons why Chris was such a good choice. He continually kept us informed as to where we were with the sale and nothing was too much trouble for him.
I would like to thank him for all the effort and time he put into selling our property in a timely manner & way he handled himself on our behalf. I have no hesitation in recommending him or you Real Estate Agency to anyone who may be looking at selling a property. M & D Douglas

Vendors daughter: I just wanted to send you a note thanking you for looking out for dad in relation to his sale and purchase.  I believe you have gone above and beyond what was required and I really appreciate it.
 
Living in Sydney it is comforting to know there are people down there who care and who are willing to go the extra mile for someone who may need it.  I’m sure dad is very grateful.  As you probably know he is moving into his new place today which I hope he will be more comfortable in and will be easier for him to maintain. Thanks again.

My Wife and I would like to say big thankyou to First National Nowra for selling our home recently.
