First Home Buyer
Buying a home is a much different process than purchasing anything else. And with the average house prices in the country reaching an all-time high this year, home buying requires more saving and dedication than ever before.
For anyone who hasn’t gone through the process, it can be extremely intimidating. Our mortgage calculator can give you an idea of the associated costs and fees. But which mortgage would be best for you? And how long should you take to pay it off? What about insurance, inspections, and valuations?
The most important thing you can prepare for now is to start a dedicated savings account. You’ll need a good amount of money saved for the deposit, for legal fees, and other costs of buying a home, such as getting a builder’s report and obtaining a valuation if you have under 20% deposit.
Fortunately, you don’t have to go it alone. Our team has decades worth of experience in home mortgage and insurance and know the process backwards and front. Our team will guide you through everything you need to know, including the process, costs, and time expected before you get your keys.
To help you get started on your home buying journey, we’ve created a comprehensive eBook called “Buying Your First New Zealand Home”. The eBook defines home buying terms such as principal, interest, p.a., fixed vs variable rates, and much more. There are also several incentives and even grants available to help first time home buyers get better loan terms or help with their deposit so they can get moved in more quickly with less stress.
Our goal is to help make sure that you are able to purchase and get into your first home, then help you get the protection you need to keep it.Enquire
My partner and I couldn’t be more grateful for everything that Brenda & her team did for us in getting our dream home and even handling life insurance, the process couldn’t have been made any easier. What should have been a stressful time in our lives was made into an enjoyable experience.
We had a tricky case, with only one wage and my wife expecting the second baby we’re really pushing the boundaries of what we could borrow. Brenda and the team went above and beyond to twist some arms and pull some strings and managed to get us what we thought was impossible and we’re now happily living in the lovely house we wanted so much. they really did an amazing job and were extremely fun friendly and professional. highly recommend them and they will help you get over any hurdle you have.
My husband and I couldn’t recommend Brenda and her team more highly. Without her, our out of town dream wouldn’t have eventuated. Thanks again x
Brenda is absolutely amazing!
It’s just like talking to a friend! So bubbly, friendly and helpful
No need to look any further than Brenda
Brenda was fantastic and helped us with our mortgage, mortgage review and other financial advice. Highly recommend her to everyone.
Brenda and her team helped us out a few years back now and without her, we would not be where we are today. She puts in the hard yards for her clients.

Brenda is amazing! She made it so simple and easy for me to sort my finances and find my perfect home
Brenda and the team are absolutely amazing. Just a fantastic bunch of ‘normal’ people who go the extra mile. Brenda is crack up, efficient and easy to talk to. Highly recommended.
Exceptional service. Brenda and her team took all the hassle out of our original lending and have made the whole rollover process so easy. It has made all the difference having someone we can trust and rely on to help us navigate the hard stuff.
Brenda is very approachable and easy to talk to. We found her extremely helpful and would recommend her to anyone needing her services.
I honestly can not thank the team enough for all the hard work they put into helping me get my home. Never once did they complain about my constant nagging calls or unusual questions or even the quick turn around. It didnt feel like a business transaction it felt like a family member helping me out. Really cant recommend this team enough. Want the best, go with the best.
