First National Real Estate Hedland in Port Hedland in Western Australia has been announced as the group's number one office in Australia.

As part of the network’s annual National Convention on Hamilton Island earlier this month, the top offices were ranked, with the Western Australian office coming out on top. According to RP Data, First National Real Estate Hedland has a 55 per cent market share in the resource-driven town.

According to First National Real Estate’s chief executive, Ray Ellis, despite the beginning of a general recovery in the marketplace, the last year has been significantly challenging for the profession.

“Last year continued to be a slow market for property, but our members showed their mettle, meeting conditions head on with fortitude and optimism,” Mr Ellis said.

“They continued to put their clients first, which shows in the results they continue to achieve, even when faced with the most arduous and difficult circumstances.

“These awards are a recognition of that hard work and tireless spirit to ensure they do their best at all times, and it is encouraging to see winners coming from all the nation’s states and territories.”

The Top 10 First National Offices for the network included:

First National Real Estate Hedland, Port Hedland, WA – Office of the Year
First National Real Estate Tweed Sutherland, Bendigo, Vic
First National Commercial Gold Coast, QLD
First National Real Estate O’Donoghues, Darwin, NT

First National Real Estate Tully, South Lake, WA
First National Real Estate King & Heath, Bairnsdale, VIC
First National Real Estate Druitt & Shead, Doubleview, WA
First National Real Estate Pope Nitschke, Mt Barker, SA

Individuals were also recognised on the night, with the Top 10 Salespeople being:
