Macungie Realtor(R) featured on HGTV’s ‘House Hunters’

Realtor® Lisa Graul-Oswald

Pennsylvania Realtor® Lisa Graul-Oswald with Prudential Patt, White Real Estate in Macungie appeared on HGTV’s real estate show House Hunters last week.

The reality television program, which fills a half-hour time slot on HGTV, follows prospective home buyers and their agents as they tour through several homes and eventually pick a property to purchase.

Oswald, a third generation Realtor® who began her career in 1995 working for her family’s real estate business, learned about the audition through her manager Barb Hodick.

“Barb thought I would be a great fit for the show so I applied,” Oswald said. “I asked my clients Jon and Stacy Puliatte to be a part of the show and they agreed.”

The trio sent in an application and a video audition to the HGTV production company. To their surprise, the company picked their application and sent a film crew out last March to film them at three home locations in Macungie.

While many home showings take about 30 minutes or less, Oswald spent three days working with a film crew and her clients as they toured the homes. She and the Puliattes often spent eight hour days at the locations shooting multiple takes and interviews.

“The application process was very easy but filming was a lot of work,” she said. “I’m pretty outgoing but this was an intimidating experience. I was also very happy that they gave Macungie so much exposure.”

Since participating in the filming, Oswald said she has received plenty of questions from curious friends and family members about the experience.

“I even had a past client contact me to say that she had seen the show,” she added. “It’s a very popular show and a lot of people watch it. My phone was going crazy.”

Oswald believes this is a great opportunity for real estate professionals to gain publicity and recommends it to others who may be interested.

“I love being a Realtor® because every day is an adventure,” she said. “This show was a fun experience to do considering this is what we do every day and the public loves it because they try and guess which house the couple choose. It’s an experience you can’t truly understand unless you’re in front of the cameras.”

    I am in the Macungie office with Lisa and she is absolutely one of my favorite people! Outgoing is an understatement. She is a breath of fresh air the minute she walks in the office. Makes me laugh every time I see her. Couldn’t think of anyone better for this show! Great job Lisa!
