The Story…

When we first met Amina Stevens, we were blown away by her inspiring mission, experience, and unmatched style.

As a real estate agent, Amina believes everyone deserves a place to call home, but recognizes that for many the idea of owning a home seems out of reach. This is particularly true for people of color and other segments of the population who have historically experienced generational housing discrimination. The home buying process is not always straight forward, which can make it intimidating and can discourage many from even attempting it. This is where Amina found her calling. Originally an educator, Amina carried her passion for teaching into her real estate career. Her mission? Close the gap through education and help make home ownership accessible to all of her clients.

Recognizing Amina’s message deserved to reach beyond her local community and would benefit a much larger audience, we went to work looking for the right platform to share Amina’s mission. We found the perfect match on Oprah Winfrey’s Network / OWN.

To bring these inspiring home buyer stories to OWN’s audience, our production team set-up camp in Tampa, FL and captured the stories of 12 hopeful home buyers. Each of these stories and episodes are as varied as the people in them and there’s so much for viewers to learn while watching at home.

This show has been a true labor of love for our team, from our development division to production and post, we’ve been honored to tell Amina’s story and the stories of those she has helped along the path to home ownership.
