VERO BEACH, FL/JUNE 2019– A listing represented by Matilde Sorensen of Dale Sorensen Real Estate has been selected as a finalist in the HGTV Ultimate House Hunt 2019. The Ultimate House Hunt is a month-long online promotion held each year on HGTV.com, featuring extraordinary homes for sale in eight categories: Amazing Kitchens, Big City Digs, Countryside Retreats, Curb Appeal, Homes with a History, Modern Masterpieces, Outdoor Escapes and Waterfront Homes.

All featured homes are represented by members of Leading Real Estate Companies of the World® and Luxury Portfolio International®. This is the eighth consecutive year HGTV has aligned exclusively with Leading Real Estate Companies of the World® and Luxury Portfolio International® for the awards, which run from June 12 through July 17. Last year’s promotion was the most popular in the award’s history, reflecting the continued appeal of extraordinary real estate.

The Dale Sorensen Real Estate listing, which recently sold, was selected by HGTV’s editors as a finalist in the Amazing Kitchens category.  The custom-built lakefront home is located at 1466 River Club Drive in the beautiful River Club at Carlton community.  The open floorplan includes 4 bedrooms and 3.5 baths in the main house and 1 bedroom and bath in the guest house.  The kitchen is designed with clean, modern lines and features a large marble topped island, rich gray cabinets, stainless appliances, elegant lighting, vaulted ceilings with exposed beams and warm wood floors.  The gorgeous outdoor pool and lanai is accessed by a sea of glass doors lining the living areas.

“I’m so pleased that this home was chosen for such a wonderful promotion,” said Sorensen.  “While the entire home is beautiful, the kitchen really is exceptional.  It’s modern and elegant with a wonderful blend of textures and finishes.  I really hope everyone will go on HGTV.com and vote for one of Vero Beach’s most beautiful kitchens.”

Consumers have the opportunity to tour the 92 homes selected as finalists by viewing photo galleries on HGTV.com and can then cast a vote for their favorite properties. A winner will be chosen in each category based on the highest number of votes received, and an overall favorite will be awarded for the listing receiving the most votes.

The winning homes will receive editorial exposure on HGTV.com, as well as the prestige of being selected as fan favorites. Additional properties will be featured in the Global Homes gallery, boasting homes from ten different countries or territories around the world.  “Inclusion in this promotion gives this home and the Vero Beach community exposure on a national and global level,” said Sorensen.

Associate Kim Tillett Finds Success On Reality TV Programs

In a little less than two years, Kim Tillett has earned a bit of a reputation for HGTV programs.

Tillett, a broker associate with Dale Sorensen Real Estate, has notched appearances on five episodes for two HGTV programs.

Tillett filmed her first episode in 2015 for Beachfront Bargain Hunt, which premiered in January of 2016.

She has also filmed four episodes for HGTV’s Island Life. The first three appeared in 2017 and the fourth will premier this fall.  She recently received a call from “Island Life” producers about filming another episode this summer.  

“I love being a part of HGTV’s shows,” Tillett said. “When they called me in 2015 and offered me the opportunity, I jumped at the chance to highlight our community on a popular television show.  I’m very flexible with my schedule so I’m able to work with their schedules and timing.  And, I love meeting people and talking to them and showing property.”

 It’s also good exposure for Dale Sorensen Real Estate and Brevard County.  Tillett has shown properties on Merritt Island and in Cocoa Village for the shows.

Formerly from New York, Tillett attended college at the University of Central Florida, moved back to New York, and then relocated permanently to Florida 16 years ago.  She joined Dale Sorensen Real Estate in May 2017 to take advantage of the company’s brand and marketing.

Tillett works out of Dale Sorensen’s recently opened Cocoa Village office.  She specializes in high end luxury properties on Merritt Island and in Cocoa Village with a focus on Brevard’s coastline, including beachfront and waterfront single family and homes and condominiums.
