Entrepreneur • Entertainer • Investor • Philanthropist • Family Man• launches new website ToddTalbot.ca 

Baracos + Brand (October 6, 2014)17781_2Todd Talbot, known for his real estate savvy, keen sense of style and quick wit, is the handsome half on the wildly popular series Love or List it Vancouver. New episodes will start airing on W Network in Canada on February 8th at 10:00 pm est/pst.

The popular TV series, which also airs on HGTV as Love It or List It Too in the USA, showcases families who are struggling with homes that no longer suit their needs. Whether they’ve outgrown the home they once loved or the lustre has worn off, homeowners are faced with the dilemma of whether they should stay or go?

A veteran theatre artist for more than two decades, Todd has starred in dozens of award-winning productions. With Love It or List It Vancouver, Todd returns to the small screen where he first made his start, as a teenager, on the hit Nickelodeon TV series Fifteen. His award-winning acting career has spanned more than twenty years and included theatrical training in London and TV appearances on series such as Smallville, Outer Limits, Young Blades, Dark Angel, Night Visions and Taken.

IMG_0070-Edit(1)Todd has just re-launched his website www.ToddTalbot.ca the home to Todd’s personal life on and off camera as an opportunity to share media exposure, upcoming events, and TV shows as well as his family life, fatherhood and fashion.

Todd’s professional life has never been busier. Todd travels between the U.S. and Canada speaking at, and emceeing a wide variety of events. Todd has also been a guest judge on Game of Homes and voiced the show Who Lives Here, both for W Network.

Todd is the new West Coast Editor of HOSS magazine, as well as a regular contributor to atHOME Victoria. Todd is a favorite guest on talk shows and a spokesperson for the BC Millionaire Home Lottery.

An entrepreneur from a young age, Todd’s company currently owns and manages multiple residential properties as well as several real estate ventures in renovation, marketing & design. Todd also leads an experienced team helping clients buy and sell homes. He has also created and operated several real estate companies in marketing, design, and staging including Condoguys Marketing, myRealDESIGN and is a new member of the Blu Realty family.

Todd has many views to share. Smart, educated, well planned investing and the guts to take the risk are what it requires to get into the game of Real Estate. Todd believes that the keys to being a successful investor are really simple: Hard work, Education, Action, REPEAT.

Not to be overshadowed, Todd’s young family is always close by. He loves to share his adventures of fatherhood, fighting the dad-bod, staying fashionable, travel, sports, and the coveted date night with his wife actress Rebecca. Todd is the proud father of two – Ashlyn (6) and Kesler (4).

Bringing a dose of comedy to everything he does, Todd believes that the only way to be truly happy in life is to find something that you are passionate about and then figure out some way to make money at it! Serendipitously it came together when both acting and real estate allowed Todd to do just that!

W Network’s Biggest Prize Winners, Charlotte Fenton and Sean Duncan, Take Home the House They Renovated in the Season Finale of Game of Homes

The Promotion People - Game of HomesTeams of amateurs transformed four decrepit houses in the competition to win their dream home

The final episode of W Network’s Game of Homes aired last night awarding Charlotte Fenton and Sean Duncan the ultimate prize: their renovated house and a plot of land to put it on. With eight weeks to renovate four decrepit homes room-by-room, four teams of amateur renovators battled small budgets, tight deadlines, cramped quarters and each other for a chance to win their dream home. The competition came to a close as Charlotte and Sean impressed the judges and the public with the broad appeal of their West Coast-meets-modern-style home to beat out the other three teams.

Each week, Game of Homes host Cameron Mathison guided the teams as they competed for the biggest prize of its kind. The season finale was a breathtaking race to the finish as teams had only 24 hours to correct their renovation mistakes from previous challenges. Throughout the series, judges Cheryl Torrenueva (Home to Go, Restaurant Makeover) and Jeremy MacPherson (The Re-Inventors) assessed the design and workmanship of each team’s room transformation with guest celebrity judges. Teams faced weekly challenges that would prepare them for the final presentation. In the grand finale, Cameron welcomed the public to view the finished houses and cast their vote on which team achieved the most spectacular home renovation. The public vote, along with the views of the judges, changed the lives of the winning team by awarding them with the ultimate prize.

Competitors House 1included father and daughter duo, Ray and Crystal Moon; family-focused PJ (Pawan) and N
ina Johar; vibrant and confident couple, and recently engaged pair, Disa Ottosdottir and Russell Schaper-Kotter.

Weekly celebrity guest judges have included Jillian Harris and Todd Talbot from W Network’s Love It or List It Vancouver; Drew and Jonathan Scott from W Network’s Property Brothers; Kortney and Dave Wilson from W Network’s Masters of Flip; Colin and Justin (Colin and Justin’s Home Heist, I’m A Celebrity, Get Me Out of Here); Kelly Deck (Take it Outside); and Dee Dee Eustace (Love By Design, Real Designing Women).

Celebrity Designers Colin and Justin are guest judges on W Network’s Biggest Competition Show ‘Game of Homes’ on April 28th at 10 pm pt/et

TS_Colin_Justin_WebGuest celebrity judges Colin McAllister and Justin Ryan join Emmy® nominated actor and host Cameron Mathison on the Game of Homes premiere on W Network Tuesday, April 28st at 10 p.m. ET/PT. The Vancouver-based series follows four teams of two amateur home renovators as they compete for the prize of a lifetime – a house and a plot of land to put it on.

Four teams of amateurs transform four tear downs into their dream homes in Vancouver in their pursuit of a once in a lifetime final prize. The show features contestants with larger-than-life personalities for whom this prize means a lot more than just a great renovation, it will truly be life changing. The action-packed series pits each team’s skill, ingenuity and teamwork against each other. Every week, two expert judges, Cheryl Torrenueva (Home To Go, Restaurant Makeover) and Jeremy MacPherson (The Re-Inventors) assess the design and workmanship of each team’s room transformation and each week they are joined by a celebrity guest judge.

With the interiors finished, Cameron gives the teams four days to attach and transform the exterior of their houses and an extreme facelift to their properties. 60-year-old stucco and shingles make way for 21st century roofs, siding and windows. None of the teams have ever renovated an exterior, and their inexperience brings injury and mistakes. You can easily repaint a room, but a wrong choice on exterior cladding will last a lifetime. Front-runners lose momentum and the harsh criticism of the judges proves too much for some. Yes we can confirm this statement.
