HGTV House Hunters, Wilton Manors

I have always enjoyed watching HGTV's House Hunters. It's 30 minutes of watching three different possible house choices.

The mechanics of the show are simple: a couple will usually pick a geographical location and choose a home out of three different case scenarios with a realtor. Its and age old dilemma of finding the "just right" property to settle in. It's a non-scripted reality themed program that explores different cities and towns in North America. There is also a spin-off program called House Hunters International.

I referred two guests from Ogunquit Beach Inn to a realtor friend of mine in Wilton Manors, that were interested in vacation property in tropical south Florida. I also purchased a renovated mid-century house from Realtors, David Daso and Bob Wilfong of Wilton Manors.  So, it was an easy choice for me to refer these guests to these gentlemen.  David was contacted by HGTV to be chosen as a realtor for an episode, with the two prospected buyers, Marcel and Carl.

The three searched for homes in the Wilton Manors area, and chose one property to buy. Of course the choice was easy: location, location, location. The last part of the program shows the owners after purchasing the property and the changes and/or improvements that are made in the home.
The last scene also features  friends touring the new home and toasting the property. I was asked to participate in that scene.
Carl and Marcel enjoy stunning views on their balcony

Spoiler alert! Can not reveal which property they purchased, but if you do need a good Realtor in Wilton Manors/Fort Lauderdale contact David Daso & Bob Wilfong. What's next?? House Hunters in Ogunquit?? Stay tuned!

  1. Hi Greg,

    I love watching House Hunters and House Hunters International.

    How fun that you were in an episode!

    When will it air?

    You must let me know!


  2. Where did they buy in Wilton Manors ? I'm looking but was trending toward Pompano because I love the beach. Have a small condo in P-Town so I can only afford about $120,000 (no Mortgage) or $180,000 with a $60,000 nortgage. Any suggestions of buildings in Wilton Manors ?

    1. Hey!
      They bought in Drake Tower on Andrews Ave. Call David Daso, he has listings in that building Telephone: 954.396.3223 Prices are still affordable!!!

  3. My favourite episode of House Hunters, and that one of them is Canadian, and it's Fort Lauderdale - they picked the perfect place.
