The First Home Buyers Club


We know that buying your first home can be overwhelming – not to mention time consuming. Trying to get your head around hoards of information, crunching numbers and understanding all that tricky legal stuff can seem more than a little complicated at times.

That’s why we established The First Home Buyers Club, to create one easy-to-access place where first home buyers know they can go for objective, honest, straightforward advice, no matter what stage of the home buying process you’re at.

We’ve done the hard yards for you and put all the information you need, right here in simple no nonsense terms that are easy to understand, and what’s more we’ve teamed up with a number of great partners to provide you with special deals* and offers to make buying your first home even easier.

We know how expensive buying your first home can be, so we have  partnered with some great businesses to bring you discounts and specials to help ensure you can save a little more here and there – after all, every little bit counts! We will continue to work on bringing you many more special offers from all around the country but in the meantime if you are looking for something in particular, it might be you need a lawyer in your town or city which we haven’t got to yet -please drop us a note and we’ll see what we can do to get a special offer arranged for you.

We’re working for you – not for the banks, and we’re here to help you at each step of the journey – from dropping that first dollar in the savings tank, to helping with negotiations with a mortgage provider, right through to helping you find the right person to mow the lawns in your new home.

Buying your first home is a super exciting time – and we love seeing our First Home Buyers Club members turn the lock to their new home!

The First Home Buyers Club was created by Karen Lewis; a former mortgage broker with more than 25 years experience in the New Zealand banking industry. Karen is passionate about helping Kiwi home buyers achieve their dream of owning a home through making smart, informed decisions with realistic, achievable terms that fit their budget and lifestyle.

While working for a number of the major New Zealand banks, Karen saw first-hand the struggles that many first home buyers face in what is an often competitive and challenging property market, and how difficult it is to get the information and support needed to get to the stage where prospective home buyers could put an offer on a new home.  So Karen created the First Home Buyers Club to provide Kiwi’s with the right tools & information, from the right people, right at the start of the process.
