Minnesota couple helps growing families decide whether to stay or sell — on HGTV
Could it become America’s new expression?
Possibly — if Brad and Heather Fox’s new HGTV series, “Stay or Sell,” becomes a hit.
“I’m Minnesota born and raised,” Brad says, “but I never thought I had a Minnesota accent.”
Social media disagrees — and lets him know.
“Apparently, every time someone needed to walk by me, or I was in the way, I said, ‘Ope!'” Brad says. “Constantly.”
“It’s so funny,” says Heather.
Wait, do we say that? Is “Ope” to Minnesotans what “Eh” is to Canadians?
Tune in at 8 p.m. on Tuesdays and count the “Opes” as Brad and Heather help families decide whether it’s time to move or renovate.
It’s not just for show, though: The couple, through Minnetonka-based Fox Homes, really does help people buy, sell, design, remodel or build homes. The Minnesota business was “discovered” a few years ago.
It almost wasn’t a connection, though.
“Brad hung up on them,” says Heather.
“I thought it was a scam,” says Brad.
