What You Need To Know

  • It's the first House Hunters episode recorded in Broome County

  • The show will air August 19 at 10:30 p.m.

  • Gregori is now living in the home she chose

She's good friends with realtor Jeri Sarrge, who knew Gregori has been looking for a house for a while now.

"She had been involved with the show two years beforehand and she suggested that I apply," said Gregori.

Sarrge helped Ike and Julie Lovelass secure the Belva Lockwood Inn, which was featured on HGTV's House Hunters. Now, the realtor had another story for TV producers.

"They reached out again and asked what was going on. I sent them the scenario of Andrea, a little bit about her and what she was looking for," said Sarrge.

Looking to downsize her lifestyle, Gregori talks on the show about several "must haves" but says she did have to compromise on some things. One thing that stayed a must for her was hardwood floors.

"I do a lot of practicing at home, so having good acoustics in the house is very important to me."

Gregori is living in her new home, but can't reveal which one she chose before Wednesday night.

Taping the episode took five days, and you may notice some out of season weather.

"We managed to capture almost every season in those five days. We had some sunshine, we had some flurries. It was a bit of a whirlwind," said the opera singer.

But well worth it. Sarrge believes the exposure encourages home buying in the county.

"We are already seeing buyers come in from New York City, Philadelphia and New Jersey because the cost of living here is so low. And we have a great quality of life," said Sarrge.

The show airs Wednesday night at 10:30 p.m.
