Similar to the American show “House Hunters,” “A Place in the Sun” helps British house hunters find dream homes abroad with advice from a local real estate expert in the city where they are looking to buy. In the Sarasota episode, Robinson is the local real estate expert that was selected by the show's director and producer. The show takes a couple around an area and shows them five homes, with the goal to find their dream home in the Sun.
“It was an honor to be selected as the Sarasota real estate expert, out of more than 3,600 local real estate agents," said Robinson, who was interviewed by show host Jonnie Irwin. "It was an awesome experience; the host and crew made it a lot of fun! It is newsworthy that they chose Sarasota as one of the few Florida cities to feature. It is important for the health of our local economy that we continually wave the Sarasota flag. Sarasota is truly an amazing city with an incredible quality of life, and I'm thrilled it will get this international exposure at a time when many British people are looking to buy real estate in the United States, specifically in Florida.”
The filming took place in December at Ophelia’s on the Bay restaurant on Siesta Key.
