This episode follows Heidi's journey, a first-time home buyer and a Home Buyer Academy graduate who shares the story of how she went from dreaming of owning a home to actually making it a reality.

We discuss Heidi's journey of saving money, learning about the home buying process, and searching for the perfect home. We dive into the challenges she faced and the decisions she had to make along the way (she even recounts the experience of how she almost bought the wrong property).

Through Heidi's story, we aim to provide practical advice and insights for others who are considering buying their first home. Join us as we follow her inspiring journey from dreamer to homeowner.
