A Twin Cities couple could become the new Chip and Joanna Gaines when their new show debuts on HGTV next month.

Heather and Brad Fox have been running their Minnetonka-based realty and design company, Fox Homes, for almost a decade, but now they're taking their skills national.

On Monday, July 9 at 10 p.m., their new show, "Stay or Sell," airs for the first time on HGTV.

The premise of the show sees the Foxes persuade people to renovate their homes so they can stay in their neighborhoods, rather than selling up.

And the pilot is set right here in Minnesota, as they help St. Louis Park couple Liza and Brian Hill with their renovation project.

“When we got the call from HGTV, we knew this would only work for us if we could focus on projects we complete for our clients, not flips.” Brad said.

"They created the premise of the show around what we actually do. We help clients stay in the areas they love by focusing on their ideal neighborhood and knowing we can completely recreate the house. When you find an area you love, we want to help keep you there."

Heather, who grew up in west-central Minnesota, explained that she and her husband have different talents that complement each other perfectly.

"We’ve got a eye for design that helps maintain the aesthetic of a neighborhood, while adapting to expanding families," she said.

"Brad has a knack for investments and finding the renovations that are going to yield the best return, and I’ve got the eye for modern design that stands the test of time."

The couple, who have two children, will be holding a live viewing party at 6Smith in Wayzata when the show airs on July 9, which starts at 9 p.m.

Provided the show is a success, which it's expected to be, "Stay or Sell" will be picked up for a full season on HGTV in 2018.

You can see the Foxes talking more about their show in this video on their Fox Homes Facebook account.
