Michelle Schrobilgen is a magazine photographer who travels all over the country shooting pictures of beautiful homes. She's recently moved back home from New York City to be close to her mother, Linda. After renting a tiny walkup in Manhattan, she is ready to spread out and buy her first home. Meanwhile she's camping on her mother's couch. She is looking for a small house with vintage fixtures and Spanish architecture. She needs something with minimal upkeep and a backyard for her two dogs. Family friend and real estate agent Jessica Van Aken steps in to help Schrobilgen with this challenge.
