Love It or List It

HGTV’s smash hit series Love It or List It stars designer Hilary Farr and real estate expert David Visentin. Filled with Hilary and David’s sharp wit, funny banter and clever, competitive barbs, each episode of the series will culminate with families answering the series’ highly anticipated question: are you going to love it or list it? The duo will tap into their respective expertise as they help homeowners make the difficult decision – love their existing home after Hilary renovates to accommodate their lengthy wish list or purchase a new house that David finds to better fit the needs of the family.

Selling the Big Easy

New Orleans native and residential real estate expert Brittany Picolo-Ramos specializes in quintessential NOLA properties. Selling the Big Easy follows Brittany and her full-service agency as they help families find the house of their dreams by showing them high-end homes with the right amount of history and charm. She also helps clients’ stage and sell their homes for top dollar in the city’s vibrant real estate market. With an approachable and effervescent style, Brittany effortlessly guides clients through the buying and selling process while touting the enticing amenities that the Crescent City has to offer.

Vacation House Rules

Contractor and real estate expert Scott McGillivray proves that homeowners don’t need a million bucks to buy the vacation home of their dreams in HGTV series Vacation House Rules. Relying on his years of smart real estate and renovation experience, Scott will teach families how to take their vacation property and unlock its full rental potential. With his guidance, even the most neglected and unlivable properties will be transformed into unique, gorgeous – and profitable – vacation homes for visitors to enjoy.
