Faye Loli and her partner John have just bought their first home in Auckland’s Clendon Park, making them the first members of their extended family to own a home.
There was no parental help available; no deposit cash gift, and no guarantee.

“When we finally got it, it was like we won Lotto. It was a memorable day for us,” the camera-shy Loli says.
