Norfolk, VA (May 6, 2014) –, leading online real estate listing site and lifestyle resource, has partnered with cable network, TLC, to help a San Diego family find the home of their dreams. The Snyder family used the website and mobile app as they scoured the city’s neighborhoods for a home to call their own. Taking advantage of tools and resources on the site, the Snyders felt better prepared for the investment of homeownership. Their entire journey was captured on the hit TLC show, My First Home.

Ready for the responsibilities of owning a home, the Snyders contacted area Realtor® Erica Miller to help them throughout the search/purchase process. Working parents of three children, Brandy and Shane were ready to leave “on base” housing in pursuit of a larger home in a neighborhood with access to great schools. Torn on their ideal home, the Snyders were faced with the difficult decision to move further away and get more ‘bang for their buck,’ or stay close to the beach. Using resources on was key, as was partnering with the perfect real estate agent to ensure the Snyders got the most out of their home search.
