Langley homes spotlighted

Admittedly or not, everyone has seen some form of reality TV. Now, with the new Chek TV show, Realty Reality, that dose of on-screen drama can come guilt-free with the knowledge that each of the 13 episodes are based in a hot market in B.C. 

Langley takes centre stage on the 18th with local realtor Rich Zalaudek of Sutton Group West Coast Realty as the host.

“Langley is a fabulous City/Township, so diverse and so much to offer,” said Zalaudek. “So naturally I jumped at the opportunity to showcase what I do in an area I love.”

A contact for the show, Erin Mogul, noted that Zalaudek was chosen as one of the seven realtor hosts because of his familiarity with the Lower Mainland, strong on-camera presence and experience in the industry.

Langley and White Rock are the two communities Zalaudek did episodes for (and are the locations of his primary offices) and he chose Langley because of the volume of new construction going on. In the half-hour episode, Zalaudek shows his clients options of what they could buy.

“We looked at new stuff because my client is not a handyman,” said Zalaudek. “These folks needed something new.”

Those watching the show that was shot in the summer will see Zalaudek take his clients, a young couple, to a townhouse in Milner Heights, a half duplex in Willoughby and a small detached home in Yorkson. 

“They are a potentially growing family who want to know what their options are aside from just the price issue,” he said. “It’s nice to educate people and let them know what’s out there in Langley. It’s a great area for younger families.”

In a standard format, Zalaudek shows his clients the three properties and goes over the pros and cons of each with them. While he is from a construction background, he knew his clients weren’t interested in the option of renovating so focused on the new and developing areas.

“My clients are great,” he added. “They are a tonne of fun.”

The show is intended to be an educational approach to real estate, illustrating the important issues often overlooked by prospective home buyers. There are also tips about home ownership included in the program.

The Langley episode of Realty Reality airs Saturday Jan. 18 at 6:30 p.m. on CHEK TV.
