As a landlord, changing your real estate agent might be one of those things you’d rather not face, and, after all, aren’t all property managers the same anyway? They find a tenant, collect the rent and pay the bills. Not necessarily. Spare David a few moments and he’ll explain why First National Real Estate Albany’s property management team makes all the difference. ‘Property managers are sometimes perceived law enforcers on a battlefield between landlord and tenant. That’s unfortunate, unnecessary, and misunderstands the true value a motivated property manager can bring to the equation’ says David When an agency is committed to quality, it needs a management structure that includes the role of business development, and that is exactly the role that David Kerr fulfils at First National Real Estate Albany. As winner of the Albany Chamber of Commerce & Industry’s “Young Business Person of the Year Award”, David came to the early recognition of his business peers for his managerial abilities. He comes to First National with over 20 years working in the professional sports coaching industry - So you might consider that David understands competition, as well as how to be commercially competitive. Born and bred locally Having grown up in Albany within a real estate family, David’s understanding of the property market is both intuitive and strategic.

We emigrated as a family from Durban South Africa ten years ago. We first immigrated to Adelaide South Australia, but found it to be too dry and hot for us so we then moved to Albany. We love the town and the friendly community orientated people. Albany is a beautiful town with the most amazing beaches. I have been a Property Manager for close to 5 years now, and made the move to First National in April 2017. I find First National to be a very family orientated company who value their staff and accomplishments. I have been married to my husband David for 35 years and we have a 28 year old daughter who is teaching in Perth and a 22 year old son who is a qualified Mechanic. We have family scattered all over the world so have enjoyed traveling extensively to visit our family. Before emigrating from South Africa, I worked in the Telecommunications industry for 25 years as a Telecommunications Electrician, where I completed a 4 year apprenticeship straight out of school. My husband David is a Fitter and turner by trade working FIFO. My passion and hobby is recreating the beautiful garden I left back in South Africa, which is quite a challenge here in Australia.
