E. Drake Real Estate, LLC Featured on HGTV’s House Hunters


Hamden, CT [September, 2007] National film production company, Pie Town Productions arrived in Hamden, CT last April to film an episode for the popular Home & Garden Television series House Hunters. The producers selected E. Drake Real Estate, LLC to be featured for the September episode. Marilee Herrera-Peterson, co-owner, guides home buyers through the home buying process. Herrera-Peterson presents three featured homes in the Hamden area to explain a comparative evaluation of the properties.

When asked about her experience filming the show, Herrera-Peterson stated, “The biggest thing I learned is how truly challenging it is to film a reality show. What seemed to be uncomplicated – filming without a script, not having to memorize lines and being free to act on your own – was more demanding than I had ever imagined, but so much fun.”

The episode of House Hunters featuring Herrera-Peterson and the Hamden area properties will air in September on HGTV. Airing dates and times are as follows: Sept. 27th at 10pm, Sept. 28th at 2am, Sept. 29th at 730pm & Nov. 19th at 12pm. On Saturday, September 29 at 6:30-8:30 PM, a Viewing Party will be hosted at Caffe Bottega in New Haven for 100+ attendees. Giuliana Maravalle, the Event Coordinator of Caffe Bottega said, “We feel very honored to have been chosen to host HGTV’s House Hunters Viewing Party, especially since we are located in a city among some of the finest restaurants in CT. We are thrilled to be able to provide our venue for this exciting event.”

HGTV’s House Hunters is a show that takes viewers behind the scenes of individuals, couples, and families to learn what to look for and how they decide whether or not a home is meant for them. Each episode follows a prospective buyer and real estate agent through the home buying process.

When Daun Margin, producer for Pie Town Productions, was asked why E. Drake’s Marilee Herrera-Peterson was selected for the show, she stated: “Marilee is very much like Greater New Haven…urban chic with traditional flair. Too many times I have encountered agents that are knowledgeable of the latest trends and ‘hot spots’ in their market yet they are missing the personal touch that makes a long lasting professional relationship. Marilee is a perfect blend of both, with just the right touch of humor. We are very fortunate to have her as part of the House Hunters family”
