After a 2010 stint on HGTV’s House Hunters International while living in Costa Rica, Harris was asked to showcase the best of the Big Island’s tropical properties for HGTV’s latest hit. “I’m excited to show what the Big Island of Hawaii has to offer. Above romantic beachfront properties, the real value of the alluring investments we represent has kept our clients happy and our company locally and internationally competitive for decades.”

Harris returned home to Hawaii a year ago with a huge appreciation for the Big Island and the people who live there. “After running my own luxury real estate business in Costa Rica for years with the competition (Christie’s), the only company I could possibly have joined next was MacArthur & Company/Sotheby’s International Realty. While “Live Here, Buy This” will be great for all the real estate agencies in Hawaii, I’m glad to have the support of our global realty team, as well as working with strong, smart women like Dodie (MacArthur, CEO.) I’m also a HGTV junkie with a four-year old, so I can totally relate to the viewers needing to indulge fantasy options.” After screening hundreds of properties, Harris can’t wait to show how far dollars will stretch here on the Big Island over Hawaiian properties elsewhere.

When choosing the hosting real estate agent and agency for this initial run of their new season’s eight episodes, “Live Here, Buy This,” Rebecca Tyo of JV Productions, shared she sought out MacArthur and Company/Sotheby’s International Realty because the brand is famed for beautiful listings and top professional agents – components trusted to show and sell properties which Hawaii home seekers and viewers alike crave.

Rebecca_Keliihoomalu , Senior VP, R(B), recently showcased a single room of Shangri-La for HGTV’s show, “Million Dollar Rooms,” highlighting again the company’s commitment in partnering for success. Three out of the top ten top producers on Hawaii (H.I.S, 2012) are agents of MacArthur and Company/Sotheby’s International Realty – a testament to the company’s steadfast striving for dreams to come true for both clients and associates.

“Live Here, Buy This” ranks often among HGTV’s number one shows in the 18-49 year old bracket — a great match for the brand reputation of Sotheby’s International Realty’s wider reach. With Molly’s ease sharing real estate in front of global cameras, lining up with a great fantasy-fulfilling concept, a longstanding brokerage with an abundance of listings of all types, plus guests primed to explore options “… we’re eager to show anyone can afford to live in paradise!” enthused Tyo.

Harris said she’s as comfortable in her thigh-high snake boots shopping raw land and real estate in the jungle as she is slipping into heels for their firm’s most upscale clients and HGTV viewers so stay tuned to see where the show steps out with Molly for Hawaiian dreams fulfilled on “Live Here, Buy This.”
