• A WOMAN who has bought a dream apartment in Sydney thanks to sensible investment, is advising twenty-somethings to think ahead when it comes to buying property.

Gabi Stephen, 31, and husband Joey, 36, have secured a $1.1 million two bed unit on Fairy Bower Road, near Shelly Beach on the city’s northern beaches.

Mrs Stephen says buying in to the tough Manly market was made possible because she bought an investment unit in Pennant Hills when she was 25.
