Nick Blyth. Hornsby NSW

As absentee landlords we rely heavily on the services offered by property managers. We have always found Melinda Edhouse & Ashley Collins From First National very easy to comunicate with, we feel confident that Melinda and Ashley are on top every situation, looking after our interests and those of our tennants. Although our contact has only been by phone and email, we have had third party recomendations about their qualities and professionalism. Testament to that is their rapid resolution of any tennantcy issues or building repair matters and the extremely detailed nature of their regular property condition reports. We look forward to making their aquaintance personally in the future and would recommend them most highly to any other property owner

Rod Seppelt, Hobart (soon to be Gold Coast)

I have always found Melinda Edhouse and Ashley Collins very easy to work with as my managing agents. Issues raised by tenants have been very promptly communicated to me, as landlord, and consequently have been able to be acted upon in a timely manner. Reminders about annual maintenance (e.g., pest sprays) have been promptly delivered and acted upon. I have found the inspection reports provided by Melinda and Ashley are particularly detailed and accompanied with an abundance of images so it is easy to comprehend the issues or what is required to remedy problems. I have no hesitation in recommending both Melinda Edhouse and Ashley Collins as managing agents for their promptness, courtesy and ease with which I, as landlord, have been able to relate to them.

Ken McHugh Fiji

We have felt very comfortable with Sharen and Kerrie looking after our property and would recommend them to anyone who might be looking for a professional Property Manager.

Neal South

My dealing with the agency has only been for a short time but to date I have found every one to be very professional and a pleasure to deal with.

Ray, Currumbin Waters.

Two good ladies doing a marvellous job of managing both me and my property.


The only reason i engaged First National, was because of Sharen moving to this company. Sharen and Kerrie are excellent representatives of First National - and I trust they are recognised as such. Sharen and Kerrie are both extremely professional, knowledgable - and MOST importantly friendly and personable. Sharen and Kerrie have an excellent work ethic and attitude to the business and to people. I would be very unhappy if my property was moved to a team that did not include Sharen or Kerrie.For me - as long as one of these amazing ladies are involved in managing my property - then i am happy and have peace of mind.

Rob Spillane

Both do a great job given my experiences withp past agents

Nathalie, Palm Beach

As it's my first property and I'm either overseas or interstate she has made it very easy for me and has been very informative and help full she has gone above and beyond what I expected!

Lyn. Carrara.

Melinda and Ashley have always contacted me with any issue. The inspections of the property are always accompanied by photographic evidence. Reports are comprehensive and on time. I would highly recommend First Nation palm beach to any prospective person. Melinda and Ashley are both professional and experienced.

Paul Roberts, Palm Beach, QLD

Sharen Patterson & Kerrie Ivak are professional in their service and approach to Property Management. They appreciate the business aspect of property investment and proactively manage our property.

Just like to say im quite happy with Ashley an Melinda as if anything goes wrong with my property they attended to the matters straight away an always polite. I also feel comfortable taking to them both. so I would recommend them to my friends if they need a realestate for rent of there property.

Kristen Anderson, Currumbin Waters

I would highly recommend the services of Melinda Edhouse & Ashley Collins. With my unique circumstances making it hard to get in contact with me I find both these ladies go out of their way to get information to me. Along with this being my first renal they both explain things clearly and provide great recommendations as how to handle certain aspects that come with renting a house out. All in all, I couldn't be happier with the services of both Melinda Edhouse & Ashley Collins.

Phil Hocken Brisbane.

Sharen Patterson has been managing my property on the Gold Coast for twenty years, I can not speak highly enough of her performance and the efforts that she puts in to her duties as a property manager. I have found Sharen to be efficient, comprehensive and diligent and nothing is ever to much trouble for her in assisting to maintain my property. Her inspections are very meticulous and feed back is outstanding. Kerrie Ivak has assisted in the management for the past few years and like Sharen, she to has been outstanding by way of giving excellent service and she too is thorough in her work ethics and her communication is excellent when problems may arise from time to time. Both are very professional and outstanding in their work performances, they are always amenable and are proficient as property managers and at all times always try to do the best for both myself and the tenants. If they are unavailable for phone calls they return calls in a very timely manner. As stated Sharen has been managing my property for 20 years and I can not speak highly enough of her tenacity, professionalism and natural sagacity to manage a property. I highly recommend Sharen Patterson, Kerrie Ivak and the company First National Palm Beach, The Pines & Burleigh to any person wanting to lease their property.

Greg Clarke Palm Beach

Sharen is polite and friendly, I trust Sharon's advice and will continue to have Sharon manage my rental property.

Kristie, Port Hedland WA

I am so much happier since I have moved the management of my rental property to HFN Palm Beach. Melinda and Ashley are great, always quick to respond and keep me up to date, no need to chase information. The service I receive is 1000 times better then the company that previously looked after my property, I just wish I had changed over sooner.


We mainly deal with Sharen Patterson but I am more than happy with Kerrie Ivak's contribution. She is up to date on any activities associated with the units. .Sharen is amazing. Nothing seems to be a problem for her. She answers any queries and clearly explains the answers to us. When we started working with first national the management we had received from the prior manager of the units was dreadful and a mess. Sharen and Kerrie sorted out these issues quickly and professionally.

Robert McCord, Bundaberg

Sharen and Kerrie are my eyes and ears now that we have moved so far from home. I would be lost without their professional and helpful advice. I know our property is in very safe hands and I can trust implicitly what I am being told is an accurate and faithful reflection of the issues facing our property. I wouldn't consider having anyone else look after us. They provide us with the security and peace of mind we need.

Sharon and Kerrie at First National Palm Beach are legends. Communication is great, statements always spot on and both are great either via phone or email. Easy to do business with.

Robin McKean Coolup

Take the worry out of property management.

Lesley Ann Mattison

Melinda and Ashley are like friends, looking after our property as if it was their own. They understand our feelings, which are very strong for our house, as we have owned it for many years, and it is old and sometimes troublesome. We feel they have our interests at heart, and are not unfairly biased towards the tenants demands, but have thoughtfulness as to our position of living overseas and us being rather aged! Although we have never met we know they are only an email away.

Bronwyn and Mark, Elanora

We are very happy with the service we receive and your choice of tenants. they are excellent tenants. thanks for your hard work and keep up the excellent service.

Grant Larven, QLD

Melinda Edhouse and Ashley Collins have been very professional in dealing with our tenant during several domestic and Body Corporate issues that the tenant had caused. This was done in a timely and assertive manner which had a positive outcome for the owner and residents. Melinda and Ashley work well as a team and have always been thorough, accurate and prompt in their communications re tenancy inspections and maintenance issues. Melinda and Ashley have efficiently handled all rental issues with a minimum of fuss and utmost professionalism which takes all the stress of the owner. I thoroughly recommend Melinda and Ashley to manage your investment property.

As well as being a proffessional team there are some standout members and not the least of these are Sharen and Kerrie. Time again their curtesy, proffessional approach and attention to detail have been of great personal assisstance in the management of my property.

Rod Seppelt Sandy Bay

My personal dealings with both Melinda Edhouse & Melinda Collins have always been very polite, friendly and easy. Any maintenance or other issues brought to their attention by our tenants, or that they have noticed themselves, have been communicated & actioned promptly.

I have always been happy to deal with my managing agents at First National Palm Beach, but Melinda Edhouse and Ashley Collins have been particularly good to work with.

Martin Stone, Austinmer NSW

Sid and Lesley Ann Mattison Scotland.

We, the Mattisons, after very bad previous experiences with other agents for many years, are so pleased to have you girls "on our side" instead of, as in the past, feeling our agents were working only for and with the tenants! So well done Melinda and Ashley. May you long remain with FNPB!

S & H O'Donnell Nowra

We really appriciate the effort that Melinda puts in and thank her for going above and beyond in her management of our property in Bergamont street Elanora.

Sharen has been managing and looking after my property for over17 years if I did not have faith in her or believed her skills were below standard I would not have remained with her to manage the property. Nothing is ever to small, she cares for the property as if is her own. She has been outstanding during this whole period. I have no hesitation in recommending her.

john lynch Grange SA

Peter Eltham North Vic and Gold Coast properties

As per my comments on my other Gold Coast property. Sharen is a top operator

Peter Eltham North Vic and Gold Coast properties

Having had the pleasure of working with Sharen in relation to both my Gold Coast properties I can say that she does a top job managing my assets. She is professional, helpful and always available when I need to seek advice from her. Would highly recommend her to anyone who is in the property market looking for a property manager.

Mary Roderick, Currumbin Waters.

Sharen and Kerrie always keep us up to date with any problems or maintenance that needs to be taken care of. They are both polite and helpful and it's never too much trouble to go that extra mile. I often suggest to friends and my clients (I'm a Mortgage Broker) that Sharen and Kerrie are excellent Property Managers.

Ray Broughton, Birkdale, Auckland, New Zealand

We live in New Zealand, Sharen & Kerrie have been both superb. Same for the rest of the team at First National

Ray Broughton - Auckland New Zealand

I would strongly recommend Anna and her Associates as exceptionally professional consultants

Robert McCord Bundaberg

Trust is critical. Both Sharen and Kerrie display this in spades through their professional and friendly manner in all our dealing with them. As we now live so far from the Gold Coast, I am able to rest easy in the knowledge that I can rely on the advice Sharen offers over any given matter will be timely, cost effective and in our best interests. I know we have only been with first National for a few years now, however we have been very fortunate to have shared an association with Sharen Patterson for the better part of 10 years. In that time we got to know what truly great service was and she is the reason we sought to place our property with First National. It is always a pleasure to take a call from Sharen or Kerrie. No matter how prickly an issues seems or how busy they are, nothing is too much trouble for Sharen and Kerrie. They always have time for me, I feel like I am there only client. When you need to talk, they will always get back to me. Their no fuss, considered manner makes them so approachable, they always know just what to do. Keep up the good work. Thanks again

Jenny Ripley, Palm Beach

Sharen and Kerrie were very professional and knowledgable during the process of finding tenants for our property at Palm Beach. We were always kept well informed of progress and prospective tenants and they were always accessible. I would not hesitate to recommend Sharen and Kerrie

Jenny Ripley, Palm Beach

Anna Deam was very professional and helpful in finding tenants for our property. She was always accessible and constantly kept us informed throughout the process of finding suitable tenants. It was very clear that she had our best interests as a focus and I would not hesitate to recommend her

Richard, Victoria

Sharen Patterson & Kerrie Ivak have managed my investment property for 3 years. I live interstate, so its important I can trust that the property is in good hands. All maintenance issues are sorted with minimal fuss, and my tenants have always been reliable. I recommend their services to anyone who wants their investment properties managed hassle free.

Jane Burleigh Heads

I met Sharen Patterson when I first rented my unit many years ago. I chose her out of many Real Estate Agents, as upon our meeting, I found her to be honest, straight forward, and possessing an extremely professional manner. Sharen has a pleasant nature, listens to what I require, follows through to exact, and has never brushed over any questions or queries. Her competence speaks for itself, and whenever any situation has arisen with my property, Sharen has dealt with it. At times in my absence where problems such as maintenance have arisen, Sharen has looked after the issue/s for me, which has alleviated all stress. Sharen has always returned my calls/emails or messages promptly, even if she was not at work, in the evenings and/or on holidays. When Sharen left the Agency she was previously employed at, I also followed her, as I believe that Sharen is the best Property Manager I have ever encountered, to look after my investment. To date, my unit is in excellent condition, and this in my opinion, is due to Sharen's care of it, her work ethic and pride in her work. I have no hesitation in recommending Sharen Patterson to anyone who is wanting to lease their property, in fact if any person wishes for their property to be well looked after by a reliable and honest Property Manager, there is no doubt in my mind, that Sharen Patterson should be the one they engage.

Peter and Karen Binnie. Yamanto

Keep up the good work.

Christene Harding 4223

In particular, I appreciate your friendly but professional phone manner and objective advice. It feels good to be able to trust and feel confident that this level of service will continue. Thank you.

I'm delighted to be able to recommend both Sharen Patterson and Kerrie Ivak who are doing an outstanding job managing by Mum's property on the Gold Coast. Highly professional with a balanced and sensible approach, they have gone out of their way to be helpful not only to me but also to tenants so as to ensure a harmonious and productive relationship. Having experienced agents from both sides, these girls are gems.

Susan Robertson, Merrimac

My property has been managed by Kerrie and Sharen for a few years now. Sharen for many more years before that whilst she was with a different Real estate agency. I followed Sharen to Palm Beach First National (she was SO good I couldn't lose her!) where she teamed up with Kerrie. I have been able to confidently leave management of my investment to these two without any cause for concern. I've even been overseas at times and un-contactable and they have continued to work professionally and ethically on my behalf. I have always had any concerns and queries attended to promptly and courteously. The level of service they provide is without peer, and I've dealt with quite a few property managers over the years, both as owner and as tenant. I cannot recommend them highly enough and can only say that if you find great property managers....hold on to them! Sharen and Kerrie are marvellous.

The girls are doing a fabulous job of dealing with my sometimes fickle tenant and by the time they bring me into any situation the issue has been resolved!!! As I am on the other side of Australia I have to rely on the girls to sort things out for me. I appreciate the fact that they have sourced good handymen who deal with all repairs which arise, promptly and charge at a reasonable rate. I also appreciate that I feel that Sharen and Kerrie are always looking out for my best interests which has lead to the trust I have in them. Keep up the great work girls!!!!!

Phillip Hocken, Wights Mountain Qld.

I am very pleased to say that Sharen Patterson and Kerrie Ivak are very professional, proficient and very specialized in their work field as property managers; they are very helpful with any inquiry and both Sharen and Kerrie have always returned calls in a very timely fashion if they are not available at the time. They are extremely committed and devoted to their work. Sharen Patterson has been managing my property on the Gold Coast for over 15 years and I cannot speak highly enough of her passion, commitment and enthusiasm during that period. At times I feel embarrassed with regards to her energies, dedication and the efforts that she puts into her work as nothing is ever too much trouble. I do not have any hesitation or reluctance in recommending her to manage your property, as you will always know that your property is being well looked after, regularly inspected and properly maintained.

Keep up the great work :)

Hilary Green Palm Beach

I have always found 1st National Palm Beach to be excellent managers of my property, including when and especially when we have had "bad tenants". I have been dealing with FNPB for at least 25 years. Sharen Patterson and Kerrie Ivak are very professional, reliable and friendly in their approach re my rental property. I would recommend Sharen and Kerrie to any property owners for complete peace of mind.

Kerry Hartshorn, Palm Beach.

Sharen Patterson & Kerrie Ivak of First National Real Estate are property managers of our duplex in Palm Beach. I could not be happier with their attention to detail with phoographs and written reporting as to the upkeep of the property. They are quick to answer any concerns or questions both from ourselves and our tenants. I would highly recommend their services to any prospective landlord.

David & Natalie Hoffman, Table Top, NSW.

Both Rebecca & Stef are excellent, providing a very professional and personal service. It's a pleasure doing business with them. Both Natalie & myself look forward to many more years service from the gang at FNPB.

John Mackie Palm Beach Qld.

Rebecca Mannix and Stef Hickman along with the rest of the staff and management at First National Palm Beach have been managing our property at Mitchell Ave Currumbin for approximately thirteen years, and have always acted professionally and helpfully with any problems that have arisen during that period. I have always found that any problems, either maintenance issues or tennants problems have been attended to quickly and satisfactorily. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them to anyone looking for a property manager for their rental property. Yours sincerely John Mackie

As a first time landlord I have found my Property Managers, Rebecca Mannix and Stef Hickman to be very professional in their job and have always been approachable, polite and willing to assist with any queries or questions. Their routine inspections and follow up reports are thorough and give you valuable information regarding your property. Any maintenance requests from the tenants have been sent immediately which has enabled me to maintain the property to a high standard. Thank you both for your continued efforts with my rental property.
