Athens News Newspaper Features Article on GPE360.com’s Portal and New Television Show – Hellenic Home Hunting

Date: 02.12.2011 / Comments(0)

GreekPropertyExchange.com (GPE) - the top real estate and property website for Greece and Cyprus - was featured in the national newspaper, Athens News, in an article titled “How to Sell Greece Abroad”. The article highlighted the founder of GPE, the website performance and the idea for a new real-estate television show to help attract foreign investors. 

The Athens News (www.athensnews.gr) is Greece's oldest English-language newspaper, founded in 1952 as a daily publication. The Athens News has regular sections covering every aspect of Greek news – be it politics, economics, social issues, environment, business, arts and entertainment, and sports – as well as international news. Weekly features include analysis of domestic and foreign affairs by leading academics and experts, humour columns and reader contributions.

The article, subtitled: How a Greek Canadian’s new television show aims to kickstart Greece’s real-estate market, was written by Athens News reporter, Kathy Tzilivakis. Kathy interviewed GPE founder, Georgios Stroumboulis, to get a better understanding of the many initiatives his company has started to help attract more foreign investors to Greece, to invest in Greek property.

When asked, “Do you think the show could help stimulate Greece’s real-estate market?” Stroumboulis replied, “I’m not saying this is going to help stimulate the economy. I just hope that I can communicate to the world that if I do this and another ten people try to do something else to help Greece, then we’re going to create a chain and can help push things forward”. He went on to describe the television show by saying: “It’s in documentary style. It revolves around a real Greek Canadian couple. It will give you a glimpse of who they are, where they’re coming from and why they chose to buy a house in Greece. There will also be a few interviews with the actual, professional real-estate agents. And after viewing each house, the couple discusses what they liked and what they didn’t like. That’s the 30-minute pilot that we are doing. It’s almost like a tourism piece. It was shot in Stoupa and Mani in Messinia.”

About Hellenic Home Hunting: The idea for the TV show was inspired by the need to better communicate the process of searching, viewing and buying real estate in Greece and to address the obstacles often presented during the actual buying process. The first installment will feature a couple from Canada, looking to invest in a summer home in Stoupa, Messinia, Greece. Their first step was to enlist a real estate agent from GreekPropertyExchange.com, and within what seemed like no time at all, found themselves on a house hunting adventure with the real estate agent, camera crew, show host and GPE representatives, on the beautiful coast of Stoupa.
