Maui Blog - Georgie Hunter R(S): It's a wrap - finished filming another TV episode for Hawaii Life

It's a wrap - finished filming another TV episode for Hawaii Life

Earlier this month I worked on my second episode for the Hawaii Life TV show on HGTV. 

The buyers were a young couple and they had a really good time filming the scenes, and so did I.  The first time around 3 years ago I was very nervous, but this time I was more relaxed.  We did the usual tour of 3 or 4 Maui homes for sale, and got to meet up in some scenic spots to talk about features and decisions.  They're really going to look good on camera and I hope you'll watch the new season this fall.

I can't reveal much about the episode, but if you follow my blog you might recognize some of the locations where we get together.  The listings are real and when we tour them, it's just like when they see them for the first time.  The film crew people were very professional and helpful, while shooting 3 episodes back to back right here on Maui. 

Why do I do this?  It's not hard work, but it is very time consuming for the better part of a week.  I guess it's just fun to try something different.  You can read about what's involved with putting an episode together on my Hawaii Life blog.

Paia Maui house that used to be for sale

One of the homes didn't make the cut due to complications that arose at the time of filming. So I guess I can show you this house in Paia that is no longer on the market.  It was very cute and showed well but... seller decided to keep it for visiting family to use. You know, when you live on Maui you'll have lots of visitors so an extra house comes in very handy!

We got lucky with the weather every day and everything went well.  You never know what can happen in the short time that's scheduled, and the few small bumps were easily overcome.  If you ever get a chance to do one of these "house hunter" shows, give it a shot!

If you keep on with these episodes, you might soon be kneeling at Grauman's Chinese Theatre to place your hands in wet cement! Sounds like you had fun.

Georgie, I do watch Hawaii Life, so keep us posted when your episode will be aired.  Would love to watch, and must have been fun.

Aloha Georgie, I tape all these episodes. The second one recorded the other day. I am very familiar with the whole process - One of my clients was picked for "Vacation House for Free" - He actually did the remodel with Matt Blashaw. My husband did the photography.  It took a year before it hit the TV.  Please let us know when your episode airs!  I can't wait to see it!!!  

Based on my experience, I know that mum is the word until the show airs. 

Here is one of the blogs about my experience with "Vacation House For Free -Sedona Oasis" .

Sheri Sperry - MCNE® that looks like a good show too.  So does your husband work on all the episodes?

Posted by Georgie Hunter R(S) 58089, Maui Real Estate sales and lifestyle info (Hawai'i Life Real Estate Brokers) 6 months ago

Sheila Anderson That home pictured didn't sell - owners decided to keep it for family visits.  It was listed for $729,000 at the time.  Watch for the new season in October/November.

Good morning Georgie.  Do these episodes air on the mainland?  I'll have to search and see if I can find it.
