You'll have the chance to listen to a panel of property experts and chat with other first-time buyers.

Additionally, you'll be able to get expert info from mortgage advisors before and after the panel talk in the swanky Mortgage Lounge. They'll sit down with you and go through any queries you have.

The event will see TV presenter and fashion designer Brendan Courtney act as MC.

So, who's on the panel?

Patricia Power – Quantity Surveyor

Patricia is one of Ireland’s most renowned Quantity Surveyors and you will probably recognise her from RTÉ's Room To Improve.

She is described as having a "straight-talking no-nonsense approach", so you know you can trust her expert advice at this first-time buyers summit.

She pretty much knows everything there is to know about new one-off houses, extensions, renovations and general home upgrades.

Richard Murray – Solicitor

Before even thinking about buying a house, it's important to get legal advice from a trusted solicitor. That's where Richard Murray from O'Donnell Murry Solicitors will come in at this first-time buyers summit.

Buying a house is probably the biggest purchase you'll ever make, so it's important to be totally in the know about the whole legal process involved.
