A couple of words about me...

Melinda Edhouse (nee Sullivan) longest running member of the First National Team, first starting with us in 1993.

We employed her when she was 18 as she already had a couple of years of property management behind her (straight from graduating year 12 – Palm Beach Currumbin High School).

Mel tearfully resigned after 8 years to join their family business in the trade/retail industry. She was part of their family business for 13 years hence her experience and ability to properly manage the maintenance of the property management area.

They sold their business and she merged back into the First National family like she had never away.

Mel is short in structure but is tall in results.

Adam Grima - Elanora

The entire team at Palm Beach First National have been absolutely fantastic. Specifically my property management team of Melinda Edhouse & Lily Talbot are phenomenally excellent at what they do. They have managed my home for just short of 2-years to date and I have not one single issue of concern with their performance and am constantly left stunned and surprised at just how perfectly my home is managed. Their level of communication is second to none, they are constantly and consistently on top of all facets of the management of my home. I cannot recommend anyone more highly than Melinda Edhouse, Lily Talbot and the entire Palm Beach First National team. If you aren't using their services, you are doing yourself an injustice.
