Showing homes and sharing her vast Tahoe housing market expertise is all in a day’s work for real estate agent Lexi Cerretti. Not surprisingly, the producers of HGTV’s “My House is Worth What?” deemed her the perfect person to appear on a soon-to-be-aired episode shot in Incline Village.
Two episodes were filmed last April, both airing and rerunning regularly this fall and winter.
The home of InclineVillage couple, Ross and Sarah McMahan, who recently put in a large master addition over their garage, was featured on the first of two episodes that Cerretti worked on.
“Filming was really fun,” Cerretti said. “In all, I loved working with the crew and it was really fun for me to showcase my expertise in helping homeowners make the most of their most prized possession – their home.”
According to Pie Town Productions segment producer Holly Schwartz, each episode involves plenty of research and scouting.
“We are looking for real estate experts who have a strong presence and knowledge of their market,” Schwartz said. “They should be confident judging homes and letting homeowners know the expected return on investment. On top of that they have to have good communication skills and lots of energy.”
Cerretti said she learned a great deal about the in and outs of television while filming the Incline Village episodes.
“A lot goes into filming,” she said. “I had to have all the data in mind as I put on my TV personality; exaggerating gestures and really hitting home the pluses and minuses of each room.” Cerretti studied reports on actual remodels done in the Incline area and how they influenced the market value.
“It was really time consuming, but nice to see that the HGTV producers want real data to support the values and gave credence to what improvements really do add the most to a home. My husband is a home builder, and I have learned the in’s and out’s of remodeling from our own homes.” Cerretti said.
A second episode featuring a larger home on Woodridge Circle will air next Tuesday, Oct 21- check with your provider for times.
