FAQ

Q: What’s the relationship between the places we visit and rental housing?

We approach the topic of rental housing as an anchor to the communities we visit. The link between housing and the people and places is akin to the link between food and culture.

Q: What do you hope people get out of watching the show?

We’re somewhere between a travel show and a real estate show with an emphasis on the people and places that make up Mainstreet U.S.A. We hope that viewers get an inside look into an everyday world that few know or understand (rental housing) and leave with a better understanding and appreciation for the communities and people of our country.

Q: How did you help these people?

I started my career in commercial lending which also covered loans to investors in rental housing. When I focused my lending on loans insured through the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) nationwide, I became aware of so many stories that I felt needed to be told about the amazing people and communities through the lens of the investors I helped get financing.

Q: Would you film episodes in other countries?

Right now the show’s footprint covers smaller markets in the U.S. where there are real estate investments occurring. Down the road I think it would be interesting to see how other countries tackle rental housing challenges and what life is like being a renter in places like Sydney Australia or Tokyo. At that point we might have to change the name of the show
