South African buyers looking for a second home on the island of Crete.

New York and Athens – March 11th, 2013 - Antenna Satellite (ANT1) aired the six and final episode of Hellenic Home Hunting on March 11th, 2013 in North America and Europe featuring a South African family of Greek descent looking to buy a second home on the island of Crete, 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. 

This episode featured a South African family with Greek roots looking for a second-home investment in the Cretan city of Rethymno, Greece. Prospective buyers, Spiros and Vangelio Hadjiconstantinou, were looking for a vacation home to also rent to tourists. The Hadjiconstantinou family found a local realtor using the real estate website dedicated to the Greek property market, www.GreekPropertyExchange.com. 

Featured in this episode is professional realtor, Ellen Hansen, of Kreta Eiendom (www.kretaeiendom.com). Working with the Hadjiconstantinou family’s wish list of 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and a budget of € 300,000, Ellen lined up 2 homes and a new-construction project in the Rethymno, Crete towns of Pigi, Nea Magnisia and Panormos. After recapping with their realtor and getting answers to their questions, Spiros and Vangelio selected a home that met all their requirements and fell well within her 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). In addition to featuring real estate from Greece, the new TV series aims to showcase the individual stories of the buyers while promoting the beauty of Greece, its culture and various regions throughout the country. The show is considered the first of its kind to feature Greek property through an innovative approach that also promotes tourism and investment.

Georgios Stroumboulis, President & Founder of GreekPropertyExchange.com and BouliBrand Media, said that “the new TV show idea was inspired by the need to better communicate the process of buying property in Greece and to provide a fresh and positive outlook on Greece during these economically-challenging times.”

The Hellenic Home Hunting series is broadcasted worldwide on Antenna Satellite during the primetime slot. Airing on Mondays at 21:00 in North America and Europe, and Thursdays at 21:00 in Australia, this show is helping reposition Greece as a premier travel destination.
