Below is a small sample of the episodes that Shirley has shot for Designed to Sell. Click to see Shirley on HGTV.

Tudor is Too Big!
Homeowner Christine Rosen lives in a Tudor-style home in Arlington, Virginia, with her brother, Mike, and her boyfriend, Will. The three-story, 3,900-square-foot house is too much for her to handle, so she is looking to downsize. Real estate expert Shirley Mattam-Male provides the lowdown on what will prevent a top-dollar sale.


Sayonara, Small Space
Brad Burns owns a basement condo in a charming brownstone building that is located in DuPont Circle, one of Washington, D.C.'s most desirable neighborhoods. He just finished grad school and is ready to sell his 700-square-foot home and move on to something bigger and better. The two-bedroom, one-bath condo is perfect for someone who wants to live in a classy neighborhood, but can't afford top dollar for a home.


Prepping a Houseboat for Sale
Nautical homeowners Nan and Julie want to jump ship and upgrade from their 52-foot houseboat to a sea vessel that is more yacht-like and less house-like. But before they can hit the high seas in a speedy new craft, they need to sell their old houseboat. Docked in the Potomac River, in the heart of Washington, D.C., the 1988 model offers a spacious main cabin, ample galley kitchen and a stateroom that has a view of the Washington Monument. 


Cashing in on a Corner Lot
Brazilian bound Homeowner Greg Meeropol has been bitten by the Brazilian bug, so he's moving to South America. But, before he can say goodbye to Washington D.C., he needs to sell his house. Greg has lived in the unique, corner-lot house for over eight years. Located in a city neighborhood with a rich past, the historic 2,000-square-foot home use to be retail store.


1929 Craftsman Bungalow
Homeowners Jack Vice and Amy Bolten are about to be married. They live in an authentic Craftsman bungalow in suburban Maryland. After the wedding the couple wants to leave the suburbs for the city life of Washington, D.C. The historic 2,500-square-foot home was originally purchased from a Sears catalog in 1929. It sits on a large piece of property and offers a lot of countryside for the short commute to the city.


Getting a Rancher Ready to Sell
Carole and John Dickson and their daughter Danielle have outgrown their one-thousand-square-foot home. They bought a spacious new place, so they need to sell this one rather quick. Located in the prime real estate market of Falls Church, Virginia, the quaint 1950s rambler home should be an easy sale. Real estate expert Shirley Mattam-Male comes by to provide her professional opinion.
