Q. How can I apply to be a part of one of your shows? If you’re interested in being a part of any one of my shows, click here to fill out a casting registration form. Good luck!
Q. How long do the renovations take on the shows? Renovations generally take about 3-4 weeks and the homeowners need to be available for camera for approximately 4- 8 days.
Q. Where can I find a list of the products and services you use on your shows? Please go to the Episode Guide section of my website which gives you access to a guide for each individual episode. On each guide you’ll find a link to a “source guide”. You can also check out my new Design Gallery for inspirational room pictures – see all of the rooms we’ve designed over the seasons.
Q. Do the homeowners on your shows get to keep the furniture? Usually, no. Unless it’s a furnished, executive rental, the furniture and artwork are just used for staging. We do give homeowners photos of the staged space to use in their rental listings.
Q. What software program do you use to draft your floor plans on the show? All of our original floor plans and layouts are created using AutoCAD. For each episode, our plans are animated by a graphics company who works in partnership with my production company.
Q. Can I hire you to work on my property or consult with me on a project? Any extra time I have after shooting various shows, writing for national publications, managing my properties, and running a real estate coaching company goes to my family… sorry, I’m unavailable to take on any individual projects.
Q. Can you recommend a contractor in my area?
We get an overwhelming amount of requests for recommendations for tradespeople, and while I can’t suggest an individual contractor in your area, I always start by doing my research.
I’ve also provided a checklist below that I use to find good trades:
Think about the interaction you had with the company or individual during your interview – were they courteous, knowledgeable and forthcoming with information and references? A first impression is a pretty good indicator of your future interactions. Make sure you follow up on references! They’re useless otherwise. Make sure you get multiple quotes and get everything in writing. And never pay the full amount until the job is complete and you’re satisfied with the work.
The more information you have, the better. Good luck with your projects!
Q. How can I get involved in real estate investing? Congratulations on making the decision! Real estate is a big topic, with lots of different avenues to explore. Check out my Keyspire website to get started.
Q. Can I rent one of your apartments? Unfortunately, we do not provide a listing of units for rent. Your best bet is to look at MLS or other reputable rental listing sites for available units in your area.
Q. Are you available to speak and/or make an appearance at my event? For endorsement and personal appearance/speaking requests, please use the contact form found here.
Q. Are those really your teeth? Can I touch your hair? Are you married? (Seriously?? I really get these questions!) Yes, maybe, and happily.
Q. You have to have a weakness… what is it? Bacon!
Q. Were you really in a boy band? Yes! I was in a group called “Next Element” in the late 90s/early 2000s.
