And a special thank you to Hunter Medical Research Institute (HMRI). As proud supporters of HMRI we were grateful to be able to contribute funds to lifesaving medical research on the day. An absolute privilege and part of our corporate social responsibility. It’s the right way to do business. That’s our mantra here at First National Newcastle. To do things the right way. With your support we were able to, so thank you for this!

Results

We had 12 properties that sold leading up to and on the day. One of the properties sold only minutes before the Spring Fling auction event kicked off. We are currently in post-auction negotiations on a few properties and expect to have further outcomes by early next week.

10 Turnbull Street, The Junction still a great opportunity for the right buyer. 

With properties represented from key suburbs in Newcastle and Lake Macquarie, we achieved an incredible $15 million worth of property sales during Spring Fling. We had a street records in Waratah West and Merewether, we had buyers from interstate, we had an absolute buying frenzy in the key suburbs in and around our offices here in the Junction.

Thank you!

We are still totally overwhelmed by the community support. The results have exceeded our expectations and we are sincerely grateful to all of our sellers and buyers who enlisted their trust in us. 

I spoke to one of these supporters, Alicia Breasley, after the event. Selling the family home in Bar Beach saw them achieve the result they were after. The property was bought by a family from Melbourne, demonstrating the reach of the First National database.

It’s just beautiful to see these things come together for our clients. What drives us is helping customers fulfill their dreams. Property can be a transformational for people. Whether they have been able to capitalise on growth or are stepping up to a suburb or home that improves their lifestyle – we get to be part of this, and it is truly inspiring.
