As Seen on HGTV! Air Date: September 8, 2011 at 10PM
As you know from my profile above, I am an HGTV addict. My favorites are the shows where they really go in and tear everything up, creating something new and beautiful out of something dated or falling apart. With an emphasis on a quality final product. Two of my favorite shows are Income Property and Sarah's House. Or those were my favorites until I was recruited to appear on the show House Hunters. I had the privilege of working with two exceptional clients to highlight one of my favorite communities, Tremont, Ohio. And that is all I am allowed to divulge! So watch the episode in the eternal world of cable reruns and try to guess which house they ended up choosing before the answer is given away at the end.
