ere's more to award-winning sales professional Helen Huntly-Barratt than first meets the eye.
As well as being a lover of beach walks, dining out, photography, art and living life to the full with her partner, Helen is 'mother' to her 14-year-old chicken, Rebecca.
Born and raised in rural NSW, Helen has resided in the area for more than a decade and has spent most of that time working alongside her 'family' at First National Byron Bay. In 2013, she was appointed a Director of the company.
Though living on the coast, her country roots run deep and she loves nothing more than weekend escapes to the hinterland. She can also be spotted admiring some of the country's best art in regional galleries around the shire.
Helen has consistently scooped Gold Sales Awards from an Australia-wide field of First National real estate agents, and recorded her best ever sales in 2012/13 despite tough market conditions.
Renowned and respected for her work ethic, knowledge of the local market and exceptional negotiation skills, she's the agent of choice for sellers from as far afield as Brunswick Heads, Bangalow, Mullumbimby and, of course, Byron Bay and the hinterland.
Inspired by her life partner and her colleagues, Helen rates honesty, integrity, hard work and play as keys to a happy and successful life.
And like many of us living in Byron Shire, she's grateful to be surrounded by a magical natural environment and colorful people who support freedom of speech and lifestyle.
