Local couple appears on new episode of HGTV's 'House Hunters'


HAMILTON COUNTY (WTHR) — A Geist couple made their reality TV show debut Tuesday evening on an episode of HGTV's 'House Hunters.'

The episode featured Jim and Eileen Ford looking for the perfect place to call home for their blended family, and the ups and downs that come with finding the right place.

The Ford's hosted a viewing party at their new home surrounded by friends and family, while reflecting on how much fun they had shooting the episode with their realtor, Chris.

"It just is about your realtor knowing you," said Eileen. "Chris knew us really well and we showed us three houses but I always kind of felt that he knew the house that was bet for our family."

"There's so much going on that when you've got a one-year-old running around and all kinds of different things going, you just have to have that," added Jim.

The episode was shot over five days.
