Irene’s Story

Meet Irene

Want to be a home owner like Irene?


Irene, proud owner of her new home.

A 29 year-old rockstar doctor working for the NHS in London, specialising  in oncology, haematology and surgery. 

She found us on Instagram and liked the sound of the community aspect to help her save money.

She wanted to own her own home to feel more settled and have a solid base in London. Having grown up in Uxbridge, she was really keen to buy in this area near her parents’ home. 

Are you ready to achieve your goals like Irene?

After a short call with one of the membership team here at StepLadder to discuss her options she decided to join a £750 a month Circle to raise £12,000.   She felt this would help her stay accountable in putting away £750 a month rather than spending it on a holiday.

Irene told us she started looking at houses before she’d raised enough money to purchase a home, as she found it great  motivation to help her plan how much she would need to raise. Aside from raising her deposit through StepLadder, Irene was strict with her personal savings, limiting her spending on holidays, takeaway meals, dinners out and taxis!  We love a lady driven to achieve her goal!

Irene raised a total deposit of  £30,000 deposit  and £12,000 was from her the Circles she joined at StepLadder.   We were delighted when she told us she’d found a lovely two-bedroom home in Uxbridge, just three minutes from her family home. 

We were delighted to support Dr Irene on her home buying journey.

What Irene Had To Say

Copy of Irene-12

“Buying a property can feel so unachievable, especially in London. I didn’t live at home for long, so it felt hard to know how to raise the huge amount of money I would need, but knowing I had StepLadder to keep me on track and that it would help me raise £12,000 within a fixed period of time made it all much easier.

It was so motivating to know I was moving closer to my home ownership every month, and I loved being part of a group of people in a similar situation who were working towards a common goal. The StepLadder team were always so supportive in helping me find exactly what I was looking for in a home, and were always ready to share their knowledge on other home-buying tasks like finding a good mortgage broker too. I’d highly recommend StepLadder to anyone raising a property deposit for a home.”
