Property Brothers is a Canadian reality television series that is produced by Cineflix. It airs on W Network (Canada) and HGTV (US). It airs as My Dream Home in Australia on LifeStyle Home,[1] in New Zealand on ChoiceTV,[2] as Irmãos a Obra in Brazil on Discovery Home & Health, as Cudotwórcy in Poland on Domo+ and as La casa de mis sueños in Spain on Divinity and on Decasa. Identical twin brothers Jonathan and Drew Scott (born 28 April 1978) help home buyers to purchase and renovate "fixer-uppers."[3]

Drew and Jonathan Scott also have several other shows: Brother vs Brother, Buying and Selling, and Property Brothers at Home in addition to Off Topic with the Scott Brothers, a 13-week, 60-minute lifestyle radio series which aired on Corus Radio.[4] Drew is a real estate expert who scouts neglected houses and negotiates the purchases. His brother, Jonathan, is a licensed contractor who renovates houses. Together, the Property Brothers help families find, buy, and transform fixer-uppers into dream homes on a strict time-line and budget.[5][6]

Each episode starts with the brothers showing buyer/buyers a house with everything on their wish list that tends to be over their budget. Afterwards, the brothers show them fixer-uppers usually with potential to become their dream home. After the buyers narrow it down to two houses, the brothers use computer-generated imagery to reveal their re-imagined vision of the home after renovations.

The show has a condensed time-line of the renovations. Typical of home improvement shows with an accelerated renovation format, the brothers have three experienced crews work on the house to finish in the 4-7 week timeline. They work with real project budgets set out by the buyers.[5] The buyers own the property and pay for the remodelling, but the show is able to provide about $20,000 to $25,000 worth of furnishings.[7]

The first season was recorded in Toronto, Ontario.[8] For the third season, the show was recorded in Austin, Texas, for half of the year and Canada for the rest.[7] The brothers returned to their hometown of Vancouver, British Columbia to film in 2013.[9] In 2014, the show recorded several episodes in Atlanta, Georgia, and in 2015 they will be filming in Westchester County, New York.[10][11]

Presenters[edit]

Jonathan Scott, a licensed contractor, and Drew Scott, a real estate agent, have managed real estate holdings for nearly 15 years. In 2004, they founded Scott Real Estate, Inc., a company that oversees the sales and construction of residential and commercial projects, with offices in Vancouver, Calgary, and Las Vegas.[6]

Drew and Jonathan started buying and renovating property when they were teenagers.[12] They bought their first house when they were 18 years old. After renovations, they sold it a year later for a $50,000 profit, while attending university.[13] However, before going into real estate as a profession, the brothers tried acting. Both Jonathan and Drew appeared on the Canadian television show Breaker High. Drew had a role on Smallville and Jonathan was on the X-Files.[12] The two also did improvisational comedy and Jonathan became an illusionist. They decided to go back to school for construction and design. Their business soon grew and they were approached to do the television show.[12]

Both brothers are licensed real estate agents. Drew was licensed in early 2004 and continues to be a licensed agent with Keller Williams Elite in British Columbia. Jonathan became a licensed agent in Las Vegas when they founded their firm that same year. But for the show, Drew is shown as the realtor and Jonathan as the contractor.[8]

They founded Dividian Production Group in 2002 with their older brother JD. They live in Las Vegas.[7] Both brothers stand tall at 6' 5".[citation needed]
