Tweed Daily News - - REAL ESTATE -

AF­TER 33 years on Palm Beach Av­enue, First Na­tional Palm Beach has moved to a new, cus­tom built of­fice. Prin­ci­pal David Hamil­ton and his wife and Di­rec­tor of Prop­erty Man­age­ment Dorothy Hamil­ton bought the land in 2014. knock­ing down what used to be a doc­tor's surgery on the cor­ner of Sixth Av­enue and Cy­press Ter­race to build their dream of­fice. While the new of­fice is only 100m away, it is o bit­ter­sweet time for Mr and Mrs Hamil­ton who have owned and run their real es­tate busi­ness from their Palm Beach Av­enue of­fice since 1984. "I re­mem­ber when there was just my­self and 2 other peo­ple work­ing here. Then fast-for­ward a decade or two and sud­denly we've out­grown our of­fice. Peo­ple were lit­er­ally work­ing in cor­ri­dors," said David Hamil­ton. The white ren­dered walls of the new 2 storey build­ing are home to an im­pres­sive team of 9 prop­erty man­agers. 6 sales staff, and 5 sup­port staff - with room to grow. "The new of­fice has a lot more space which will not just al­low for growth at Palm Beach. but our other of­fices as well. We have al­ready moved one of our top agents Rhys Wil­der­moth from our Sonora of­fice to our Palm Beach of­fice. We are also mov­ing our train­ing room from our Burleigh of­fice to Palm Beach which will al­low us to em­ploy up to 4 more sales staff at our Burleigh of­fice," said Prin­ci­pal David Hamil­ton. It's not all about busi­ness though. Mr Hamil­ton en-sured the of­fice was built for the 21st cen­tury, with 2km of data ca­bling, 10kw of so­lar power on the roof, LED lights and heav­ily in­su­lated walls, ceil­ings and floors. "While we're not ex­actly 'off-the-grid' we hove done a lot of work to en­sure we are as self-suf­f­i­cent and green as pos­si­ble." Af­ter nearly 9 months of con­struc­tion. Mr Hamil­ton is ec­static to have fi­nally moved into the new build­ing. which will be open for busi­ness from Mon­day 23rd Oc­to­ber. "Ev­ery­one is ex­cited. there's a greof vibe in the of­fice. We are look­ing for­ward to be­ing able to grow and de­liver even bet­ter ser­vice to the com­mu­nity of Palm Beach and sur­round­ing sub­urbs," To con­tact First Na­tional Palm Beach, please call (07) 5559 9600.
