I’m sending a big shout out and congrats to Houston, Texas, resident James Walley, who has won the HGTV Urban Oasis 2012 Giveaway. HGTV’s John Gidding came knocking on the Walley family door yesterday evening, just one day after James’ birthday. At that moment, James was helping his oldest son, age seven, with a homework project, while his wife Denise was finishing up a bath for the couple’s youngest son, age two. “My son ran up to the door and yelled up and down the hallway ‘HGTV is here! HGTV is here!’” says James.
James works in the IT department for a national sporting goods chain and says his favorite HGTV shows are Property Brothers and Love It or List It. Denise, who just opened her own medical practice, says she loves the series Property Virgins. As for a move to Miami, the couple says they enjoy the city and have vacationed there before and agree that the location of the home made the contest very attractive. The Walleys entered the HGTV Urban Oasis 2012 Giveaway twice a day — almost every day — through the entry period.
To see James’ reaction to winning the grand prize, tune into the HGTV Urban Oasis Giveaway 2012 special on Friday, December 28, at 8 p.m. ET/PT.
