    I am trying to analyze local seo keyword for a particular service. I can see that top result have 0 links and PA = 1, DA = 17
    and other competitors are like 300 + (good links) & DA/PA of 24 & 35 still ranking below the first one.
    Please advise me what are the possible reasons behind this.
    thanks

    They just blocked ahrefs,moz,majestic.. is what he means. While google will still count the links the others won't, thus you see those results (one of the possibilities).

    another possibility could be the unique contents, i have a new site seated at #1 position of 2 low competition keywords without any backlinks.

    Two possible reasons.

    The first one is the footprints have been hidden so Moz bot can't detect the links as pointed out above. The next is the honeymoonb period. On some occasions, new sites can rank very high on google, even position one during the honeymoon period. I've experienced it several times.
