First National Real Estate is proud to announce the official opening of a new office in the South Auckland region called First National Real Estate Fortitude, with a team of exceptional professionals who are dedicated to providing a comprehensive range of services to their customers.

The opening event, held on Thursday 30th June, was attended by special guests National Party MP, Andrew Bayly, and First National Real Estate CEO, Ray Ellis, who spoke about the property market outlook for both New Zealand and Australia.

First National Real Estate Fortitude’s team comprises CEOs of the sales team, Priyank Patel and Angie Patel, Principal Jeff Carr, and administrators Carol Gunther and Anaia Barnett.

With a combined real estate experience of over 45 years, the agency’s staff are fluent in several languages and incorporate a strong background in real estate administration, sales and management, as well as operations and management in the healthcare sector. The resulting blend of skills is designed to deliver a uniquely holistic customer experience.

‘Our clientele personally endorses the expertise we provide, how we provide it, and the enormous benefits they receive from it’ said Ms Patel.

‘We take our role incredibly seriously, so that our customers get the industry-leading service and treatment they deserve. First National Real Estate has also just won Canstar Blue’s ‘Most Satisfied Customers’ award for a fourth time, and this aligns perfectly with the values we embrace at First National Real Estate Fortitude’.

During the opening event, Priyank Patel reinforced the agency’s identity, cultural values, and its deep commitment to supporting its community.

‘As a team, we are a family and we embrace the diversity and ideology of different people and cultures. We will always support and honour the communities that provide us with our livelihood,’ said Mr Patel.

‘Over many years, “Team Patel” has worked diligently to establish a reputation for building relationships with clients, be it buyers, sellers, investors or developers, local businesses, clubs, health and wellness centres, or community charity organisations.

‘We sponsor numerous events, schools and organisations, and we are well known for giving back to the community. We proudly sponsor the Pukekohe AFC Football Club and the team Franklin United.

‘But above all, we thank our community and customers for their continued trust in our services, are humbled by the enormous support we have received, and are looking forward to putting our customers interests first as we work to achieve their property goals.’

First National Real Estate’s Chief Executive, Ray Ellis, welcomed ‘Team Patel’ to the network, which has over 320 offices throughout New Zealand, Australia, Vanuatu and New Caledonia.
