HGTV House Hunters

As a real estate agent, as quirky as it is, I believe the HGTV Show “House Hunters” does a good job at introducing people to the world of real estate, even if the show’s participants don’t choose the right property.  In 22 minutes, you see buyers: Identify their real priorities (wants vs needs), experience the process of buying, and share the excitement around purchasing a new home.

These three events are what every buyer experiences and honestly one of the reasons you should have an agent there to help.  Let’s take a brief look at each to explore how I help my clients.

First, I like to expose buyers to a wide range of properties in different neighborhoods, allowing them to explore different styles, layouts, and amenities within their budget.  This exposure helps them clarify their preferences and gain a better understanding of what they’re looking for in a home and educates me on what I should be taking them to see.

Second, it’s helpful for me to provide clients insight into the home buying process, including market trends, negotiation strategies, and common challenges faced.  I have had the opportunity to observe the experiences of others and can share these valuable lessons to help buyers avoid potential pitfalls when navigating their home purchase.

Third, I find it important to help provide inspiration and motivation for buyers who may be feeling overwhelmed or uncertain about the home buying process.  As an agent it is important to instill prospective buyers with confidence so they can enjoy the excitement of purchasing a new home even when there are rough moments.

Overall, I’d love it if clients thought of their journey as an episode of “House Hunters”, because I get a ton entertainment and enjoyment throughout my client’s experience.  I see the highs and lows and then sparkle when someone finds their home, even if it’s not one I’d buy.

I hope this is helpful in your journey.  Thanks for your time.  If you’d like to connect or share your thoughts, I can be reached via email at
