Kathy interviews first-time homeowners, Tori Noble and Carl Nogradi, on the ins-and-outs of buying your first home – getting approved for a mortgage; working with a realtor; house-hunting; and winning the bid in a seller’s market.
A game of beach volleyball in Tecumseh and some mutual friends brought Carl Nogradi and Tori Noble together, and now, 5 years later, the young couple has purchased their first home together. Carl graduated from welding school with honours and is currently enrolled as an Industrial Mechanic Millwright. He works full-time at Fabmaster Welding and Millwrights as a welding supervisor and fabricator and works part-time for Lambton College as a Subject Matter Expert and Associate Welding Professor. Tori studied Political Science at the University of Guelph and University of Windsor obtaining a Bachelor of Arts and Masters. Tori now holds a position with the Federal Government of Canada as a Support Clerk. In their free time, Carl enjoys gardening, landscaping, and woodworking while Tori volunteers with Finding Them Homes animal rescue. The couple loves to spend time with their dogs, Daisy and Jag, and their family and friends.
