Earlier this month, some of our clients were flipping through the TV channels and caught a familiar face on HGTV. Over the next few days, we were getting texts, calls, and emails that all asked the same question:
“Was that Amy that I saw on House Hunters?”
Amy Harasz is an agent who has been with the Keri Shull Team since the early days. She has helped grow the team from a group of just a few local agents to a powerhouse of nearly 100 employees that helps hundreds of families buy or sell a home each year.
Like all of our teammates, Amy is incredibly dedicated to finding and winning homes for her clients. Furthermore, we use the most cutting edge technology and strategies — such as off-market home sales and expert negotiation techniques — to ensure that our home buyers can find their dream house faster and win bidding wars without being the top payer.
Well, that dedication paid off big-time a few weeks ago, when Amy was the featured agent on an episode of HGTV’s House Hunters. In the episode, she helped a couple find the right home in Falls Church VA while dealing with the stresses of planning their wedding — and best of all, they were able to get the home for less than the asking price despite how much of a seller’s market the area is! This was a huge opportunity for Amy and the team, and we are so proud of her for crushing it on national television!

How Does an Agent Get on House Hunters?
To be featured on HGTV’s hit show, real estate agents have to go through a submission and application process. In this application, they share some information about their client and the local real estate market — and if the producers are interested, they reach out and set up a time to shoot!
So what is so interesting about this particular sale?
Well, in addition to the unique struggles of finding a home while planning for a wedding — which is no small feat — you have to consider the unique nature of our local real estate market. Real estate moves fast in the DC/Maryland/Virginia area. This is true in DC’s hottest neighborhoods, and it’s just as true in the more suburban areas like Falls Church.
People who are living in Alexandria VA, Arlington, or anywhere else in the DC area are interested in selling their homes quickly. This means that interested buyers have to be willing to move equally fast or risk losing their dream home. In fact, this is one of the main things that we tell our clients to prepare them to buy: be ready to make a quick decision.
