After my last post about HGTV calling for casting here is another urgent request from the HGTV production team. For the HGTV show going to be produced in Shanghai they need a local relocation expert who is fluent in English.
The role for this person will be to accompany our host, Chi-Lan Lieu to different locations around the city and introduce her to the culture, the lifestyle and the real estate market (buying and renting) as well as three sets of homeowners/renters that we will be profiling in the episode. He/she will talk with our sharing interesting facts about the relocation process and the challenges and struggles of living in Shanghai in a personal yet informative manner. Agents who understand the tricks of the trade, for example - an agent needs to be sure to understand the difference between furnished and unfurnished or the client might not get a kitchen sink!, are perfect candidates for this role as long as they're knowledge is focused on Shanghai (or perhaps one of our other cities should you have contacts in Dubai or Tokyo). We will send all materials prior to our arrival so the expert will have plenty of time to prepare.
It is a really fun opportunity for everyone involved, so if you or someone you know, perhaps an agency that has a great reputation?, is a knowledgeable, English speaking, outgoing, youthful and confident relocation consultant/expert who would like to apply for the position or who might know someone who is a good fit, please get in touch with me so we can get the process started. All applicants are required to submit a casting video and complete a questionnaire so it's important I have time to collect these.
Please let me know if you have questions, otherwise, feel free to forward our press release or the name of a company or person who would be a great resource. As you probably know, the episode will be filmed

I am looking forward receiving some photos from HGTV of nice Shanghaian homes to publish here on this blog for interior design lovers. However this will be after the show was on air in March 2012.
The HGTV team changed the shooting date and deadlines as they were not aware of the Golden Week in October. The shooting of the show will now be in the week of October 10 - after the famous Chinese holidays.
