HGTV’s Property Brothers Casting in Connecticut!

Are you a fan of the HGTV channel’s Property Brothers? Call it an occupational hazard, but my TV is pretty much set to HGTV 90% of the time. The show’s hosts Jonathan and Drew Scott are so familiar in our house that my youngest daughter was able to recognize them by the time she was 3-years-old and dubbed them the “house guys”.

The Property Brothers have done a few shows in our area and the time has come again. They are officially casting in Fairfield County and Westchester this winter. Applications can be filled out directly on their website by clicking here. One of the requirements is that the buyers be purchasing a Fixer Upper. The greater Danbury area has plenty of these types of properties to choose from so if you find that you’re ready to take the plunge into home buying and as a bonus, would like the Property Brothers to help you renovate and decorate your new home, I am happy to help!

You can search properties on my agent website today!

We all know that in the digital age, everyone seems to have answers to everything at their fingertips. This is especially evident in the Real Estate industry...

"Well, Zillow told me..."

Whether I'm meeting someone for the first time or gathering at a family function, the topic of Real Estate these days always surfaces for conversation. It often starts with, "Oh you're a Realtor? Tough market, huh." or "How's business, Allyson? I hear it's just a bad time to sell." My question back is, "Where did you hear that?" and most of the time the answer is "From Zillow (or Trulia, or some other third party website)."
