HGTV selects two Alabama realtors to host new show ‘The American Dream’

A Hoover, Alabama real estate duo has been chosen to be a part of a new nationally-televised HGTV show. “The American Dream” is set to feature HBH Realtors Jordan Masaeid-Hosey and her colleague James Savelle.

According to the Hoover Sun, the show will feature real estate professionals from across the US as hosts. The program uses positive media about local neighborhoods to educate, empower, and engage viewers with content that highlights the lifestyle and culture of communities across the country. Each episode is designed to explore distinctive points about a particular area and inspire the audience to achieve their own American dream.

“A lot of real estate shows can tend to show real estate in a more dramatic way,” said Masaeid-Hosey. “The CFO of the show we are filming, Craig Sewing, wanted to change the narrative and show a more positive angle of real estate, while showcasing the voices of Realtors for their markets.”

“Hoover has so much to offer,” Masaeid-Hosey noted. “I want to show how advanced and diverse we are, and how well connected our community is and is still affordable, unlike many other major cities.”

“This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, and we are just so excited about it.”

“We hope to represent the city of Hoover well and look forward to letting others see how great it is to live here.”

Savelle explained his personal role on “The American Dream.”

“I will be taking viewers on a journey exploring the lifestyles, cultures and real estate that make up Birmingham and the surrounding areas,” Savelle said. “This show will be a rollercoaster of excitement. Being a foodie, I will definitely be taking you on a culinary tour.”

“We will journey through various neighborhoods with all types of real estate, as well as interviewing members of the community, business owners, celebrity guests and philanthropists.”

He also elaborated on the process of being selected as a host for the new show and said that he hopes it will help to showcase “our wonderful home state.”

“I thought, ‘Sure, why not? Let us see where this thing goes.’ After I responded to that initial email, everything was a whirlwind. Several Zoom meetings later and one afternoon while eating lunch, boom, I got a call from one of the producers congratulating me for being one of the five hosts chosen to represent Birmingham and surrounding areas.”

“I want to inspire, educate and shine a spotlight on the aspects of our communities that make so many Alabamians proud to call Alabama their home.”

“I want viewers to see the show and think: ‘I could see myself living there.’”

Filming for the show begins in May, with Masaeid-Hosey and Savelle’s episodes being released in June.

Episodes can be found on HGTV, CNBC, Bloomberg TV, Travel Channel, Amazon Fire, Apple TV, and ROKU.
