Property Manager @ First National Robina heart of the Gold Coast

  • Join a great team as a dedicated Property Manager grow to a senior role
  • More resources + more development + more support = more job satisfaction!
  • Work for the area’s largest most successful agent, latest technology, no dramas



This is a great opportunity to build a real career with a team PM structure inside a great business @ Robina Town Centre. No new business chasing!


As the market leading office in our region with one of Robina’s largest rent rolls, we are offering you the opportunity to join our award winning team that enjoys unequalled resources in a great location, working within an effective structured team system.

“People who need people are the luckiest people in the world…” so the old Barbra Streisand song goes!  Here at First National Robina we value people who have people skills. We require an experienced Residential Property Manager to join our well-resourced and supportive property management team, managing a diverse property portfolio in the greater Robina area.

Here at First National Robina we have crafted a team-based structure that allows each individual to focus on a speciality within the Property Management service and become his or her very best. This is how we offer a superior level of service to our clients. It also gives us as a team with some clear advantages.

This way we can each perform a role that best suits our strengths and gives us the greatest personal satisfaction, rather than spreading ourselves too far and creating unnecessary anxiety. This team-based work also allows us to support each other when one person is away; giving us all the opportunity to take regular breaks and cover for emergencies. Finally it gives us real team strength as we are interacting every day to provide the best service outcome for our clients.

Thus our Property Management Department is divided into several sections including this role of the Senior Property Manager, who manages the ongoing relationship with our landlords and establishes all the legal requirements for the tenancy.

Your role in our team: Evaluating and reference checking prospective tenants, selecting tenants and all the legalities of writing new tenant leases,   whilst liaising with all stakeholders, resolving conflicts, ensuring standards under Tenancy Acts, managing rent and lease renewals, PCR?s, bond inspections and refunds.

Superior process, industry leading automation, and work practices means you can concentrate on building relationships with our landlords with less distraction therefore less stress and ultimately more job satisfaction, delivering high service standards! This is one of the reasons our business enjoys such high levels of morale among our staff.

Separate team members deal with showing the properties when they become vacant, doing all the accounts work and we have a dedicated Business Development Manager who is focused on selling new management rights and ensuring the success of ongoing relationships with vendors and the growth of the businesses.



High Quality Personalised Ongoing Training 

We have our own First National Network training academy, the South East Queensland Academy. No matter what level of experience you have there are targeted courses to further equip and hone your skills. Peter regularly organises legal updates for the entire team as legislation changes to ensure we are always offering our clients the best advice. Ongoing mentoring programs support you post-training to translate your learning into effective selling skills. We don’t just give you a few good ideas; we work with you to prepare you for selling success. Check it out for yourself at

Peter Whitcroft, Business Leader

Guiding your learning is our business owner and licensee Peter Whitcroft, who has a wealth of selling experience and knowledge about our market.

Peter’s whole career has been in real estate starting as a youngster almost straight from school. Following an award-winning career in Real estate sales in Melbourne, Peter saw the light and moved to the Gold Coast in 1987 to establish his own award-winning business. Peter is now a business owner focused on developing solid business systems and supporting his staff to be their very best.

Peter is no longer a ‘young gun’ focused on his own success leaving the staff to manage for themselves. Peter is a true business leader, focused on running the whole business and has done this very successfully through all the different market cycles ensuring the success of the entire team.

Our Office

One of Peter’s strategic business decisions was to move an established business into the Robina Town Centre in 2000. This gives us, and you, walk by traffic of over 50,000 people a year. Being part of South East Queensland’s biggest retail centre means everyone in the community knows us. Many of them walk past us every week. It’s also a fabulous, vibrant work environment full of energy and of course the convenience of having so many services for your own use just a few steps away.

We are a proud member of The First National Real Estate Network, which in just 33 years has grown to be one of Australasia’s largest and most successful independent real estate brands, with over 500 offices across Australia and New Zealand. Our growth success is based on our co-operative structure where there is a genuine desire by members to help each other. A network of our size and resources gives us access to all the benefits you will need. Technology, marketing systems and processes are constantly being upgraded to stay in front of the competition.

Our Community

Operating from the Robina Town Centre we cover the heart of the Gold Coast including Robina, Varsity Lakes, Mudgeeraba and Merrimac. This Greater Robina area, as we like to call it, is a thriving part of the Gold Coast from the prestige of Bond University to the growing IT community at Varsity Lakes and a variety of businesses choosing to open near the train station to Brisbane.

Varsity Lakes is emerging as Australia’s Silicon Valley with a concentration of technology businesses setting up offices. As more and more creative professionals are able to work wherever their fingertips and a phone take them, they are deserting miserable Melbourne and soulless Sydney for the family friendly lifestyle of the Queensland Coast.

All this contributes to a solid real estate market that is not as prone to the fluctuations of the Australian economy or as reliant on local tourist volumes. We are in the stable ‘middle of the market’ and the nature of our landlords and tenants reflect that. No wonder Peter has been here so long.

The Right Financial Package

A salary package is negotiable relative to experience and future remuneration will be based on achievement and challenge, and we reward you proportionately for exceeding these.

That’s what we offer the right candidates at First National Robina

… and that’s how we will help you build your Property Management career with us!
