A real estate development company featured in Wednesday Journal's Homes section last October is set to be featured on a TV reality show next fall.
Safe and Sound Investments, which redeveloped a modest frame bungalow at 837 N. Taylor Ave. into a luxury farmhouse-style home last year was picked for the show The Deed: Chicago, which is currently in its second season on the news-centric cable channel CNBC.
While the show is similar to other reality real estate-themed shows in that it chronicles the ups and downs of speculative ventures, what separates The Deed from some others is that it involves a real estate hotshot — in this case broker/investor Sean Conlon — swooping in to rescue a potential financial disaster.
Safe and Sound Investments, which is owned by Riverside couple Nicolas and Caren Isopo, in November broke ground on its most ambitious effort to date — a brand new, from-the-foundation-up, "bespoke" single-family home.
Filming is expected to begin soon and run through May. The show is slated to air next fall, according to Sylvetta Christmas, unit production manager for The Deed.
By the way, if you're interested in checking out Safe and Sound Investment's work, the home on Taylor Avenue remains on the market. You can take a peek at the home at www.ss-invest.com/837-taylor.
The list price is $759,000.
