Moving to Dallas and working hard for over a decade finally paid off for Chris LaMont when he landed a show on HGTV called Buy It or Build it. Over the show, he helped clients to make the big decision to either buy and renovate an existing home or make a new one from the scratch — either way, the dream home will be built perfectly!
Let’s get to know him better as this Chris LaMont Bio proceeds.
Chris LaMont On HGTV’s Buy It Or Build It
HGTV’s new show Buy It or Build it premiered on May 18, 2022, and it saw Chris and his brother Calvin helping people in Dallas in making the big decision for their dream home.
According to Chris, he preferred renovating as it was an “opportunity to take something that is seen as undesirable and create something beautiful and soft after.” Also, he’s found it “cool” to see the family’s faces when they saw the result of a beautiful remodel.
On the other hand, his bother, Calvin preferred the idea of building a home from the ground up. He claimed that the clean slate and lack of boundaries that comes with building a new home were much more advantageous. “I love starting with a simple line on paper and transforming that into a home that represents the clients’ wants and needs—aesthetically and functionally,” he explained.
But though the brothers may differ in their views about building homes, they are in mutual understanding once the decision is made. And this coordination is exactly what made the show so interesting to watch.
The LaMont brothers, in fact, have been in sync ever since 2010. Yes! at the time, the duo had just moved to Dallas, TX, and opened up a janitorial and floor cleaning company. Fast forward to 205, they then began their adventure of flipping homes together and before they knew it, they were up in the spotlight.
The last we checked, Chris and Calvin over more than 20 residential lots. Reportedly, they were most excited about up-and-coming neighborhoods and focused on locations with potential.
In the future, the brothers also plan to kickstart their businesses outside of Texas.
