Fans of HGTV’s smash hit series House Hunters and House Hunters International can catch local real estate agent Rachel Barnette on Friday, December 13 at 5pm (HST) as she helps her client Sergio purchase his first home.
Barnette is a real estate agent at Prudential Advantage Realty in Honolulu, Hawaii. Her relationship with her client was an integral ingredient to the success of the show.
“Real estate is my passion, so I jumped at the chance to be on House Hunters,” stated Barnette. “I enjoy my job as a REALTOR®, because I get to help first-time home buyers through the sometimes nerve-racking process of buyer a new home. My client, Sergio, and I had a blast being on this episode of House Hunters. We all have a lot of fun together and it shows. There are some very comical parts of the show that take a look into the little idiosyncrasies of Honolulu condos built in the 60s and 70s. The buying process was tough for Sergio, but he always kept a good sense of humor.”
House Hunters, which has over five million viewers per episode, goes behind the scenes of the biggest financial and emotional experience of one’s life, finding and buying a home. Barnette will appear with her client Sergio visiting several homes in the Honolulu area while they make the difficult decision on which home to pick in this challenging housing market with a budget of $400,000.
“I think viewers will relate to this episode, because it shows a really realistic snap shot of the first-time home buyer in Honolulu,” says Barnett. “In reality, most first time home buyers are like Sergio and looking to purchase a condo under $400K versus a single family home in the $800K-$1M range. I really think it will be tough to guess which apartment he chose. This is going to be a good one.”
Barnette will be watching the premier of her House Hunters episode with her friends and clients at her home in Kailua on December 13. Airdates for this episode include:
• December 13, 2013 – 10:00 PM HST
• December 24, 2013 – 11:00 PM HST
