About Us

New Zealand’s Leading First Home Property Advisors

House C

We are deal do-ers, First Home Helpers, and people who can get the job done. We’ve successfully played a part in helping over 2000 everyday New Zealanders, just like you, to buy property – both for themselves or as an investment.

Through this, we’ve learnt the tricks of the trade and are constantly finding ways to make buying property affordable for everday Kiwis.

These include

  • Finding out what government grants are available
  • How the lending rules really work
  • Where you can get financing for your property
  • Where you can find properties that make great first homes

We’ve also made connections with all the sorts of professionals you’ll need when you buy your first home. That means that if you don’t already have a mortgage-broker, lawyer, or accountant that you know and trust, we can introduce you to the people you need to get the deal done.

As we said, we are deal do-ers. And by the time you finish working with us, it is our mission that you will be a deal do-er too.

What we do in three steps

  • We help New Zealand Under 35’s find out what sort of home they can afford to buy, and​ we help them find ways to increase that number

We find houses that make great first homes
