Astra Realty Owner and Broker Leslie Remy will wrap up filming for an episode of HGTV's House Hunters Friday.

Couple Anna and Jake Bentrude met Remy through Facebook when they heard she was looking to film the show. Originally from Utah, the Bentrude's have been living in McKinney with a family member for about a year but contacted Remy ready to buy a home of their own.

Filming for the show took place at three homes in McKinney and a variety of locations, including the downtown square, Tupps Brewery, Walls of Clay and Hutchins BBQ.

Remy said she will continue filming episodes in McKinney and is currently looking for new buyers to participate on the next episode.
