Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices recently announced the winner of its Love Your Home Sweepstakes held during the spring in conjunction with HGTV and its hit show Love It or List It. Todd Villari, a Trussville, AL, father of four and HGTV enthusiast, was drawn for a $50,000 cash prize from among more than 3.3 million sweepstakes entries.
The entrant total more than doubled the total of Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices’ first sweepstakes a year ago. “My initial reaction was ‘no way!’” said Villari. “I immediately called my wife, Keeley, and her first reaction was the same, ‘no way!’”
Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices launched the Love Your Home Sweepstakes in March with TV spots that aired in spring. The real estate brokerage network also sponsored vignettes featuring “Good to Know” home design and renovation tips that appeared on HGTV and on Scripps Networks Interactive digital properties, including those for HGTV, DIY Network, Food Network, Cooking Channel, Travel Channel and Great American Country.
Love Your Home Sweepstakes offered another $30,000 in weekly prize drawings with $2,500 going to 12 winners around the country.
“Our goal with this year’s sweepstakes was to have more winners and keep the fun going from start to finish,” said Gino Blefari, CEO of Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices. “We congratulate grand prize winner Todd Villari and all our weekly winners and wish them well in the years ahead.”
