The Property Brothers


“It’s too tiny,” Maggie insisted.

“What is?” Saul asked.

“Oh my god,” she answered. “Open your eyes. There’s barely room in there for one person at a time.”

Saul looked at the partially opened door to their master bathroom. “It’s functional.”

“That’s not a master bathroom,” Maggie countered. “It’s a small closet with plumbing.”

“It is what it is and it does what it’s supposed to do,” Saul said.

“Fine,” said Maggie. “I’m calling up those guys from HGTV. You know, those two guys who fix houses.”

“You mean The Property Bothers?” Saul chuckled. “Good luck with that!”

    Sounds like a typical young couple starting out in a 1950-size apartment and she has 2k expectations.😘

    Brings me in mind of when we first started house hunting and the estate agent said one thing, made the property more grandiose than it ever could be. Thanks for bringing back fond(dish) memories.

      I’ve learned to never trust what a real estate agent says. They embellish the good and don’t mention the bad. They’re like used car salesmen, only they’re pushing houses instead of cars.

    Drew, Jonathan and J.D. Scott, the Property Brothers develop cutting edge, original content across multiple platforms.

      Yes they did. There are now a lot of copycat shows on HGTV. The brothers also won my wife’s heart. She loves Drew and Jonathan and she wants to know why I can’t do what they do. J.D. has a more limited role, usually only on “Brother Versus Brother.”
