Popular TV show’s “Renovation” spin-off follows HUNT Real Estate agent’s clients through the process of selecting their home and the ensuing remodel

On Saturday, July 11th at 10pm, HGTV’s House Hunters Renovation will feature HUNT Real Estate ERA sales professional, Mandy Smith Taborda, as she assists HUNT clients in finding their ideal home to remodel. House Hunters Renovation is a spin-off of one of HGTV’s most watched shows, House Hunters.

HGTV describes House Hunters Renovation as a show that features home buyers as they tour three for-sale homes and choose the one that is the perfect fixer-upper. Cameras capture what happens after the home is purchased and the renovation process. The progress is charted and the results of the remodel are revealed at the end of the show.

“We toured homes in Elmwood Village, North Buffalo/Parkside, and the University Area,” said Smith Taborda of HUNT Real Estate ERA’s Buffalo Metropolitan office. “I’m honored that I was selected to help showcase our distinctive Buffalo neighborhoods to a national audience.”

“It was an amazing experience working with the HGTV crew, especially their producer, Susan Hunt (no relation to HUNT Real Estate), who is originally from Buffalo. She knew exactly how to show Buffalo at its best,” Smith Taborda commented. “I won’t spoil the surprise and say which home was selected, but I am very excited to see how the remodel turned out.”
