If you have watched HGTV, you have definitely come across their hit show “Love It or List It.” Led by dynamic duo Hilary Farr and David Visentin, the show involves them trying to convince homeowners to keep their homes or to put them on the market. Farr, who is an interior designer, is in charge of renovating the homeowner’s home with a set budget. Visentin, who is a real estate agent, is tasked with the goal of searching for homes which match what the homeowners are looking for that their current home lacks, such as access to schools, certain amenities, etc.
Often times, the audience and the duo have no idea what the buyer’s decision will be, and that uncertainty makes it all the more enticing to watch!
The show was originally shot in Toronto, Canada, but it has since moved down to North Carolina. This has added a new twist to the show, and increased its appeal to a wider audience as it now caters to both an American and a Canadian demographic.
Farr and Visentin each bring something truly special to the show which has made it one of the most watched shows on the network. But ultimately what has made the show such a success is the organic humor between the two. Their comfort and familiarity together constantly draw the audience in… and the constant bickering makes them a delight to watch week to week! Now, it’s time for a few little-known facts about the two! While there is a lot of magic on screen, there is also a lot that takes place behind the scenes.

It may seem like Farr and Visentin have known each other for a lifetime judging by the easy dynamic between the two. But contrary to popular belief, the two actually did not meet until they auditioned for the show. Farr was cast before Visentin. When Visentin came in to audition for the show they loved him. The channel thought he would compliment Farr, and he possessed the sense of humor they thought would play off of Farr’s and create some healthy competition between them.
