From Renting to Owning: Dorien’s Inspiring Journey to Homeownership


Feeling overwhelmed by Auckland’s property market? You’re not alone. But what if we told you homeownership could be within your reach, even as a complete beginner? Today, we meet Dorien, a recent university graduate who achieved his dream of buying a house in Auckland with the help of Lucia Xiao’s Property Investment Mentor Program.


Starting from Scratch

Dorien, like many first-time home buyers, felt lost when it came to property. He’d read “Rich Dad Poor Dad” and understood the power of investing in assets, but where to begin? A Facebook ad for Lucia’s program sparked his interest. The workshops offered a roadmap – different property types, ownership structures, and most importantly, buying strategies for those with no prior knowledge. Dorien, impressed by the program’s focus on beginners, attended the workshop twice to soak up every detail.

Facing the Hurdles

Saving for a deposit was Dorien’s biggest hurdle. Unlike some, his family hadn’t built equity through property ownership. The program became his financial bootcamp. He created a budget, slashed unnecessary expenses, and prioritised saving. It wasn’t easy, especially seeing others achieve their goals before him. But the program instilled resilience. He learned from their journeys, stayed focused on his own path, and trusted the process.

The Power of Support

Dorien highlights the program’s invaluable support system. Lucia connected him with a buyer’s agent and mortgage advisors who were always there to answer his questions. This guidance, especially for a first-timer, proved to be a game-changer.

Lessons Learned, Dreams Achieved

Dorien’s biggest takeaway? The importance of mentorship. Learning from Lucia’s expertise and surrounding himself with positive individuals like other program members made a huge difference. He also learned a crucial truth – it’s not about timing the market, but finding the right property that aligns with your goals.

Dorien’s message is clear: Don’t give up! If a complete beginner like him could achieve homeownership in Auckland, so can you. With the right guidance, a strategic plan, and unwavering determination, your dream home can become a reality.

If you’re eager to unlock your own potential in Auckland’s property market, whether you’re a first-time buyer or a seasoned investor, Lucia Xiao is here to guide you.
