CHAIRMAN 2007 can be summarised as - the year of growth. The keystone of this growth is your Board’s commitment to strategy, and the understanding that there must be limits on what you are trying to achieve. Companies without a strategy are willing to try anything. However, if what you are trying to do is essentially the same as your rivals, then it is unlikely that you will achieve success. Member implementation of initiatives introduced, as part of our strategic plan, has proven to be the chief contributing factor for the success of the network in 2007. Your Board views its role as somewhat of a facilitator - members talk, we listen, assess, then act – that’s the strength of our co-operative. As a Board, to fulfil our strategic commitments, we value performance, accountability and reliability. That’s the culture within First National and it’s very exciting to witness the results this year. Once again, the network has achieved a financial surplus. This excellent result reflects the dedication, expertise and management skills of your national administration team. Following the successful introduction of our COMMERCIALFN.COM chapter, a similar initiative was launched for Rural members in 2007. Like, COMMERCIALFN.COM, this chapter of our membership will reap the rewards for many years to come. The joint National Convention, conducted with our New Zealand network colleagues, was the largest gathering of members in the network’s history. The success of this Convention is still being talked about, both by members and network Alliance Partners. I encourage all members to attend our 2008 National Convention at Sanctuary Cove when we introduce the network’s exciting new initiatives. This year’s Annual General Meeting will see the conclusion of Project 25. This Board initiative has been developed over the past 12 months, in reponse to member directive at last year’s AGM, examining all aspects of First National’s business model. This project is designed to ensure the long-term growth, competitiveness and, ultimately, success of our network. As well as the highlights of this year, I would like to personally comment on the passing of long-term NSW rural member, Geoff Shelton. I am proud to say that Geoff ’s commitment and friendship is now permanently honoured at the network’s Agquip pavilion - renamed ‘Geoff ’s Shed’. To all members who share the spirit of co-operation through office bearing positions mentoring, committees, chapters – thank you. This contribution, as well as sharing of ideas and fellowship, greatly improves not only the network but members’ individual agencies. Above all else, I value my role as Chairman and to be elected to this position is indeed a humbling experience, as well as a great honour. I am fortunate to work with a unified Board who share a common purpose – to deliver on our promises and take responsibility for our commitments. I greatly look forward to catching up with you all at the 2008 National Convention in May.

CHIEF EXECUTIVE 2007 was, again, a successful year for our network. One of the most pleasing aspects in being your Chief Executive is the opportunity to regularly spend time in members’ offices. This experience greatly enhances our decision-making process and contributes to the ongoing commitment of improving member benefits. Although a detailed summary of the achievements for 2007 is contained within the national Executive Team Reports, highlighted below are further notable achievements : Financial surplus The network’s financial performance achieved a financial surplus and the 2008 budget, again, reflects this on-going commitment. Member Benefits In excess of $1 million of member benefits was allocated in support of the network’s charter. Membership Growth The network growth in 2007 was 2% and reflects an 8% growth rate since 2004. The success of our 2007 Convention, held in conjunction with our New Zealand partners, heralded the strength of our network – over 700 attendees. This commitment by members to come together, learn, share experiences and enjoy fellowship will, no doubt, be repeated at the 2008 Convention – Sanctuary Cove, Queensland. Our brand and network profile received increased recognition with an extraordinary high number of member offices and network staff acknowledged by state and national institutions. A prime example, is the network’s growth in auctions – 30% increase – and our chief auctioneer, a State Finalist for the third consecutive year. The success of state-based funded training – supported by network resources – together with streamlined Best Practice accreditation resulted in a 50% increase in member participation. Since the 2007 National Convention there has been a 43% increase in the number of First National offices attaining accreditation or reaccreditation. Members are well served by the commitment of the national administration team. Our staff are proud to work at First National and keen to contribute to the network’s long-term growth. Experts in their chosen fields, staff understand the modern needs of members. Managerial emphasis on career development provides opportunities for staff to contribute to special projects, ensuring their professional growth and the network’s ongoing benefit. In addition, throughout Australia, zone events, state awards, and national chapter conferences reflect the co-operative spirit of members who freely give their time to co-ordinate and participate in these events – thank you. I would like to share with members one of the keystones of our strategy in 2008. At First National, we value innovation, we strive for continuous improvement and endeavour to break new ground in providing industry leading benefits to members. It is with this philosophy that we enter 2008 with the enthusiasm of Project 25 (a review of the network’s operating model), the growth of our Rural and Commercial chapters, the excitement of the First National Foundation’s humanitarian partnership with the Australian Red Cross, and member participation in the national REIA awards.

FIRST NATIONAL

FOUNDATION Since inception in July 2007, the First National Foundation has grown and strengthened with over 35% of the network now committed to raising funds in support of the Australian Red Cross Emergency REDiPlan project. The commitment and generosity demonstrated by members resulted in over $240,000 being raised. The network’s objective is to raise $1 million in 2008 to assist Red Cross in the delivery of the Emergency REDiPlan programme, aimed at helping communities across Australia prepare for, respond to and recover from emergencies and disasters more effectively. Members involved with their local Red Cross contacts have started to generate awareness of the Emergency REDiPlan project in their communities, and are benefiting from building community trust in their business’ through a public association with one of the most respected charities in Australia. Further strengthening the alliance between our network and Australian Red Cross, many members are assisting with initiatives that fall outside of the Emergency REDiPlan project, such as donating blood and assisting at charity auctions. In Western Australia, members are coming together to help Red Cross auction a house! Members sponsoring the Foundation have pledged $3 million dollars in support of Australian Red Cross. This three year commitment earns members the right to co-brand their advertising with Australian Red Cross logos. Many members report a marked increase in listings, following their co-branding. It is evident that the network’s philanthropic efforts, aligned to one of the world’s most respected brands, has resulted in an improved corporate citizenship in the minds of consumers as well as an increase in business for members. The First National Foundation will gain momentum in 2008 with the inaugural Foundation Week – 14th to 20th April. During this period, the network will redouble its fundraising focus in addition to the year round efforts made by individual members nationally.

EXECUTIVE TEAM REPORT NETWORK FINANCIAL MANAGEMENT For the second consecutive year, the network obtained a surplus position and represents the commitment to Best Practice procedures. The operational enhancement of the network’s accounting system saw the introduction of electronic invoicing and improved member communication. As a result, the Board of Directors are able to closely monitor the network’s financial performance. Throughout the year, the network’s investment strategy for retained profits was reviewed, in conjunction with renegotiation of supplier contractual arrangements, and the desired outcome for continued improvement was achieved. Information Systems The Information Systems department continued to deliver solutions, placing the network at the leading edge of technology. First National’s office management system, Platform, was further consolidated in 2007 with the product maturing and developing in response to member feedback. The implementation of an office server solution delivered improved speed and efficiency and a ‘salesperson module’ enhanced user friendliness. Platform continues to be at the forefront of Real Estate management software. First Priority, an online buyer-matching and listing tool, experienced great success with rapid member take up in metropolitan and rural regions. Designed by South Australian members, then further developed by the network, First Priority is unique in the marketplace and provides members with a real point of difference. Search Maximiser, a web based technology that helps customers find First National member websites before competitors’, continued to drive success with Google search rankings. The second phase of this project was launched and members have responded strongly. 2007 saw the introduction of First National domains (fndomains.com.au), a First National co-ordinated product that provides access to domain names at competitive prices. This initiative is a great example of consolidated buying power working to achieve maximum savings for members. Gateway, the network’s corporate intranet, underwent a total revamp prior to the 2007 convention. Formerly known as FirstNet, the name change reflects the evolution of this resource to provide ease of use, better search functionality and user friendliness. A toolbar, that can be added to member web browsers, enhanced access to the website and enables members to search Gateway, and the internet, simultaneously for real estate related products and services.

EXECUTIVE TEAM REPORT Business Development and Member Services Team The development of sustainable new income streams is integral to the network’s strategy to strengthen its financial position. Non-member revenue is augmented through partnerships and strategic alliances with suppliers of real estate related products and services. Non-member revenue continued a trend of growth, increasing 50% on 2006 results. Member implemention of new and existing products and services played a role although, improved relationships with Alliance Partners, and careful consideration of the network’s mutual interests, is acknowledged as a contributing factor. The success of the 2007 National Convention’s coordination became a talking point across the wider supplier industry, delivering a raft of new opportunities and improving the network’s reputation as a professional, commercial entity, worth doing business with. Our alliance partners and suppliers introduced and delivered new products and services for the betterment of members and the network. We acknowledge their continued support of First National:

We welcome new partners and suppliers to the network this year;

EXECUTIVE TEAM REPORT Business Development and Member Services Team (Cont.) All members are encouraged to acquaint themselves with our partners and to fully explore the many benefits they can deliver to real estate practitioners. The 2007 Annual Convention brought together Australian and New Zealand members to celebrate the network’s 25th Anniversary, generating new activity, events, fellowship and sponsorship with an attendance of over 700. Comments received from sponsors and members indicated the convention was viewed as ‘one of the best ever’. Member Services Managers applied a greater focus to the education of members in relation to new products and services throughout 2007. Member office visits are more strategically focused, ensuring members are receiving information that will assist with their success. The implementation of new protocols has enhanced the value of network/member contact during such visits. Zone meetings continue to be well attended and provide a great opportunity for members to share ideas, network, and provide feedback on First National and industry matters. The provision of specialised national conferences, state and industry specific, such as Property Management, Agquip, Rural, Commercial and awards nights provided members with additional learning and fellowship opportunites. For a second year, the network promoted itself with a display booth at the Australasian Real Estate Conference (AREC) at Darling Harbour in Sydney. Member Services Managers, NSW State and National Chairmen, were on hand to discuss the many advantages of First National membership. Attended by over 2000 agents, network recruitment opportunities were created and several new offices opened as a direct result. Region Reports, delivered by the MSM team at zone meetings, continued the provision of information about national, state and local matters as well as a news stream of First National member benefits and initiatives. A new concept, The Network Doctor, has proven a great success, introducing a new member services approach as well as a valuable tool for the network. The Network Doctor unlocks the full range of skills spread across the Member Services team, National Office staff, suppliers and relevant industry experts. It delivers a mini conference style presentation to a zone, or multiple member offices, over a single day.

EXECUTIVE TEAM REPORT Marketing The First National Real Estate brand improved its market penetration with the positioning statement ‘We put you first.’ increasing profile amongst members and industry bodies alike. Research confirmed a 12% growth in brand awareness nationally. The provision of products and services that assist members to develop their business, and lead their respective markets, continued in 2007. Resources such as the Local Agency Marketing series (LAM), Search Maximiser, First Priority and Fusion were successfully implemented in many member offices. A comprehensive member communication strategy, raising awareness of First National products and services, as well as industry information, was implemented in 2007. These internal communications address industry and legislative developments, member and network achievements, as well as facilitating the network’s camaraderie. The bi-monthly stream of media releases continues to appeal to national and local newspapers, assuring the First National brand is repeatedly placed in front of consumers in opinion pieces and industry related subjects. Members, notified by email upon distribution, successfully leverage from such releases by contacting their newspaper to add local commentary. The launch of an internal Post-Production facility enabled the network to take a leap into the future, simultaneously generating savings in an area of previously considerable expenditure. Consumers may now view network communications in the form of FNTV on the national website, learning why they should choose First National agents instead of competitors. Members can easily add FNTV to their own websites, choosing network TV advertising or other key messages. In a short space of time, members will simply select which of these mini-movies best reflect the message they wish their website to portray, with the click of the mouse. Members also now benefit from visual communications such as ‘In a Nutshell’ - the network’s first audio visual summary of products and services launched at the 2007 National Convention. Such initiatives place First National members at the forefront of the profession and 2008 will see the expansion of benefits delivered from Post-Production. Many other initiatives were launched or enhanced throughout the year including the network’s corporate branded merchandise available online through SHOPfirst; Billboards, state based television and the Corporate Identity Manual V3, also now online.

Sponsorship of the Melbourne Phoenix netball team proved a fantastic partnership for the network on a brand exposure level. A total of 2189 media reports gained the network advertising exposure valued at $4.3 million dollars. Substantial progress was also made in the unification of the First National brand.. Members embraced a Board directive to update shop-front signage, leading to a refreshed, more professional appearance, as well as consistency of the trademark ‘Swash’.


13

EXECUTIVE TEAM REPORT e-Marketing The network’s e-Marketing department experienced somewhat of a watershed year in 2007. Search engine optimisation (SEO) strategies delivered an overwhelming majority of members consistent Top 10 Google rankings for popular industry related search terms including ‘real estate’, ‘commercial real estate’, ‘rural real estate’ and ‘real estate agent’. First National’s search engine presence also grew with 88% of members now appearing in the Top 10 for their office location when searching the term ‘real estate’, plus their suburb. This success drives business directly to the doors of members, reinforcing the value of belonging to the network. Further enhancements were made to the network’s websites with the introduction of a new member templated website design incorporating enhanced SEO features, many of which remain proprietary. Zone website management was brought in-house delivering lower costs, improved search engine rankings, and assured accuracy of membership representation, at all times. Traffic to firstnational.com.au and related national websites increased a further 10% on 2006 results, directly reflecting the network’s growing SEO expertise. Nowhere does the advantage of the network’s ‘not for profit’ corporate charter stand more starkly in contrast to that of franchise competitors than in First National’s eMarketing outcomes. Network expenditure is a mere fraction of other brands, yet the outstanding achievement of First National’s SEO is measurably far in excess of networks investing substantially more capital. The future success of real estate businesses will increasingly rely on each operator’s ability to grasp and exploit ‘behind the scenes’ web technologies, such as those developed and implemented by the network. Traditional marketing methods such as signboards and newspaper advertising are rapidly losing effect, by comparison.


14

EXECUTIVE TEAM REPORT TRAINING The network’s National Convention, chapter and state conferences, achieved record attendances throughout 2007. The feedback from participating members, who attend these business seminars, clearly reflects a marked improvement in their business opportunities. The continued emphasis by the Board of Directors, in conjunction with State Councils, on state-based training, again, saw record numbers participating in Training sessions. The average attendance, at all network Training, was increased by approximately 30%. The success of the network’s commitment to Training – ‘education’ – can be directly attributed to the participation by Trainers from within the group. Members are well served by their colleagues who freely give of their time, from their own businesses, to assist fellow members to gain an enhanced business strategy.

RURAL The network increased its commitment to the provision of rural member benefits in 2007 with the appointment of a National Rural Manager. The commitment will result in a growth of rural membership. First National Rural is focused on the enhancement of existing rural marketing materials, the development of new web based resources, the services provided by Member Services Managers, and the targeted expansion of rural membership. The National Rural Conference, held in Goondiwindi Queensland, was marked by the largest gathering of rural members the network has ever seen. The agenda incorporated a broad range of speakers; a field trip offered members insight into the issues faced by several large rural enterprises, and the National Rodeo Finals which provided First National Rural with an ideal sponsorship opportunity to reinforce and promote it’s commitment to the bush. One of the early initiatives of First National Rural was the launch of a full colour, gloss lift-out property magazine - True Blue. 42,000 copies of the magazine were circulated in Queensland Country Life Newspaper, providing excellent sales and listing outcomes for members. This initiative will expand to other states through 2008. Further supporting the rural sub-brand, the Board of Directors endorsed new rural office signage combining member names with the words ‘First National Rural’. This replaces the traditional member logo that uses the words First National Real Estate under the red line. The first office to adopt the new look was Henry Slaney of Charters Towers, Queensland. First National Rural’s development will continue in 2008, assuring the prosperity of the network and the expansion of its rural chapter.


15

EXECUTIVE TEAM REPORT COMMERCIALFN.COM The evolution of the network’s new COMMERCIALFN.COM sub-brand continued with an expansion of membership throughout 2007. COMMERCIALFN.COM capitalises on the network’s well established national network of residential agencies, and aims to create a powerful new commercial identity in the Australian marketplace, focused on the largest segment of commercial transactions – suburban commercial real estate. Members have embraced the opportunity to enter the commercial market, or expand their existing commercial business, through a two tiered membership structure. Those adopting the new office branding have reported increased referrals and listings. Confirmation of COMMERCIALFN.COM’s relevance to members was demonstrated through record attendance at the chapter’s first Commercial Conference. Many new benefits were released to commercial members during 2007. The Commercial Operations Manual Volume 1 was launched and a dedicated COMMERCIALFN.COM website increased the brand’s profile with some 1400 property listings now appearing each month and Google search rankings lifting to first page results. A commercial suite has also been added to the network’s CRM system – Platform. A coordinated advertising campaign was implemented through an external agency and this has led to consistency of brand management in national newspapers. Commercial members have received referrals from investors, developers and owner occupiers on a steadily increasing basis, while advertising and brand exposure in magazines, journals and billboards contributed both to increased web traffic and referrals.
