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

    Mortgage broker Adam Dahill of loanDepot will 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.

    Attorney Daniel Gershburg of Romer Debbas will describe the role of the attorney in the home buying process.

    Brownstoner Home Events is a series of workshops and panels for prospective home buyers, sellers and homeowners. A second Brownstoner Home Event, about townhouse renovation and investment, will take place in May.
