HGTV and Property Brothers in the Philippines

The super cool and super funny twin brother Drew and Jonathan Scott of Property Brothers had a meet and greet at 4pm at Glorietta Activity Center. I had the privilege of seeing them up close afterwards at Makati Shangri-La over dinner.

Property Brothers is a show on HGTV , which debuted in U.S. in 2011. With more than 15 years of experience in making dream homes a reality for homeowners, Drew and Jonathan Scott are television’s twin titans. Their witty banter, charming personalities and uncanny knack for uncovering real estate treasures, have helped make the Property Brothers the faces of home renovation on television since Property Brothers made its U.S debut on HGTV in 2011. Since then, the talented and charismatic duo have gone on to star in other hit programs such as Buying and Selling and Brother her.

HGTV will launch Property Brothers in the Philippines on March 1 on Channel 88(SD) Channel 246 (HD) and soon on Cignal TV.

When asked about his expectations for the tour, Drew Scott, the real estate half of the duo, said, “ I am excited to be back in the Philippines, having been to Manila before, I love its cultural landmarks, beautiful architecture and wonderful people. It is such an honor to be part of the HGTV launch in Asia, and delighted to have met the fans in the Philippines, answer all their questions about home design and get to know more about their lifestyle and culture.”

Echoing his brother’s sentiments, Jonathan Scott, an experienced contractor, commented, “It feels great to have been able to get up close and personal with the home and design enthusiasts in the Philippines. HGTV is the place to be if you are looking for home tips or creative ideas. We really enjoy what we do and we look forward to inspiring audiences with fresh ideas and authentic stories soon. ”
