First National Real Estate has underlined its support of regional Australia this week with network chief executive Ray Ellis attending AgQuip in Gunnedah, the nation’s largest agricultural event where over 3,000 agribusinesses are exhibiting and more than 100,000 visitors are anticipated.
The three-day event runs from Tuesday 21 August to Thursday 23 August and is located on a permanent, purpose built site, eight kilometres west of Gunnedah in New South Wales. It plays a vital role in connecting manufacturers, distributors and suppliers of agricultural and associated products and services.
“First National Real Estate maintains a permanent exhibition shed at the AgQuip site and has done so for more than 20 years. This emphasises the our support of First National’s regional customers, farmers and agribusinesses,” said Mr Ellis.
“As one of the largest regional real estate networks in the country, we engage with rural property owners on everything from clearing sales to broadacre, commercial, lifestyle and residential real estate. Each year, thousands of customers visit our exhibition to discuss everything from buying their first home to investing in property as well as the best methods of sale”.
The network’s annual exhibition incorporates a display of property listings, educational materials and all sorts of giveaways. A photographic competition is also being conducted this year, where customers hashtag their photos at the shed with #fnaqquip18 for a chance to win a $1,000 www.booking.com voucher.
Various local members and their staff are staffing the exhibition, with the network’s ‘Lifestyle Specialists’ and ‘Rural Specialists’ at hand to answer questions, plus one of the network’s Business Growth Managers who has an Associate Diploma of Applied Science in Agronomy.
First National Real Estate recently put its support behind the Buy A Bale initiative nationally, underpinning the nation’s efforts to support farmers affected by drought conditions, but many of the network’s members are also engaged in additional fundraising initiatives.
