    Mortgage broker Adam Dahill of loanDepot can talk about financing and down payment options, including financing for tricky situations such as mixed-use properties, condos and co-ops in small buildings, and homes that require a construction loan.

    Real estate agent Terry Robison of Douglas Elliman, who has served as president of his co-op building, can explain how and where to look for your first home and what you need to know about co-ops vs. condos and houses.

    Financial planner Kristen Euretig of Brooklyn Plans can discuss how to make a home buying plan, how to come up with a down payment, and how to buy a home even if you have debt such as student loans.
