Canadian buyers working with local realtors to find their dream vacation home.
New York and Athens – February 4, 2013 - Antenna Satellite (ANT1) aired the premier episode of Hellenic Home Hunting on February 4th, 2013 in North America and Europe featuring a Greek-Canadian couple looking to buy a vacation home in the beach-town area of Stoupa, Greece. Viewed by more than 1 million viewers, the 30 minute episode captured the house hunting experience – giving viewers insight into the Greek real estate market, its processes, laws, procedures and obstacles.
Filmed in Stoupa and Mani, this episode of Hellenic Home Hunting featured a Greek-Canadian family looking for a home investment. Prospective buyers, Bessie and Andy Protopapas, were tired of not having their own place to call home and wanted to invest in a home where they can vacation in the summers. The Protopapas family found a local realtor using the real estate website dedicated to the Greek property market, www.GreekPropertyExchange.com.
Featured in this episode are professional realtors, Chris and Stefania O’Connor. Working with the Protopapas family’s wish list of a large kitchen, kid friendly space, enough room for a growing family and a budget of € 200,000, the O’Connor’s lined up 3 homes in the Stoupa and Mani areas. After recapping with their realtors and getting answers to their questions, Bessie and Andy selected a home that met all their requirements and fell well within their budget – making Hellenic Home Hunting a positive experience for this family.
Hellenic Home Hunting is a half-hour documentary-style show featuring Greek real estate agents and their foreign home-buying clients as they hunt for investment properties in Greece (Hellas).
