Print version of T&T’s Real Estate Television Series on its way?

Talks are currently being held to develop a print version of the popular Real Spaces television series for Trinidad and Tobago distribution. This full color publication will be targeting the daily newspaper distribution for national reach and once approved, will include more tips from suppliers, properties from agents, and financing facts for our viewers-cum-readers.

The proposed quarterly publication should be a reality soon and if so will for the first time, include giveaways and other competition based content that have previously not appeared on the Real Spaces series.

The Real Spaces brand is also working on further development of the interviews segment for home owners or other design enthusiasts, that are seeking a mix of hard to find facts and everyday tips in the design of their real space.

Real Spaces to consider requests to shoot Tobago and Barbados Properties

Now into our fourth season, Real Spaces is being asked to start featuring properties in Tobago and other caribbean islands as well. These can include Grenada and Barbados for our international viewers and website visitors. This is great news that the interaction on the site is working to the point that the type of properties will be determined, at least in some part, by the viewership.

The logistics are currently being sorted out and hopefully soon we will be adding properties to the line up from different caribbean destinations. Rentals, sales, and maybe even tourist accommodation.

Stay tuned for the official update.

Real Spaces on location at D Rite Stuff

Recently, Our main Sponsors First Citizens approached us to produce a segment on their new Pre-Approval Mortgage Certificate. Normally, we try to make these segments both informative while offering some imagery or location that is in keeping with the them of the series. As our customers tend to be renters seeking homes for sale, or new homeowners seeking decoration tips on this new place, this imagery can sometimes be in the direction of decor, construction or renovation themes. So, for this tip we turned to our friends at D Rite Stuff.

With branches in West Mall, Ellerslie Mall, Grand Bazzar and Long Circular Mall, D Rite Stuff is known in the West and upper Port of Spain as “The Brand” in home supplies. However, according to store manager, Bryan, “We are trying to gain some visibility with customers in the East, Central and other parts of the Country and not just for those customers that hail from the North- West”.

No suprise then that we were given a warm welcome to the LCM branch one evening after closing, to shoot our brand new tip with our favorite rep of FC, Pasea of their Movietowne branch. Like any true star, Pasea just needs one name.

The shoot was great and the tip was well worth pulling out all the gear it takes to shoot on location! (which can be a lot) Now, customers of FC can be Pre approved for their mortgage loan and take an actual certificate to the agents, showing that they are indeed approved for the property range they are shopping in. A great way to get the ball rolling much faster as an individual on a house shopping exercise.

Great job to Pasea and her husband that is always quietly present and supporting her on all video shoots, not to mention to Bryan and his sister, who were more than happy to help out!

Real Spaces saying thanks guys for another great shoot!
