'Property Brothers: Buying and Selling' to Feature Local Construction Expert Artie Lange III; Premieres April 19 on HGTV PDF Print Email


By Carol P. Bartold

Apr. 12, 2017:  Make a date with the Property Brothers, Jonathan and Drew Scott, hosts on HGTV network, to see local construction and renovation expert Arthur ("Artie") Lange III and his crews from Arthur Lange Inc. transform rooms in Lower Hudson Valley homes.

Property Brothers, one of the most popular franchises on the HGTV network, will kick off its new 13-episode season, Property Brothers: Buying and Selling, on Wednesday, April 19, at 9:00 pm on HGTV. Workers from Arthur Lange Inc. are featured on four of the six episodes filmed in Westchester and Rockland counties.

The show, as company president Artie Lange III explained, sought clients who were deciding whether to sell or keep their homes. Real estate agent Drew Scott offered advice on how the clients could get the best price for their homes with some renovations, and licensed contractor Jonathan Scott advised what renovations would yield that price.

The series' first episode chronicles Artie Lange and his team refurbishing rooms in a Scarsdale home. Lange and his crews appear on subsequent episodes filmed in Yorktown, Rockland County, and Eastchester.

For the duration of the work, Jonathan Scott "kicked" the clients out of their homes. Some clients couldn't resist sneaking a peek at the work midway through the renovation. A surprised Jonathan made them leave and instructed them not to return until the final reveal.

"The jobs came out great," Lange said. "The clients had to give 100 percent trust to the entire team to create the renovation they envision." He added that no problems have come to light with any of the work. In fact, the company has gained some repeat business with the clients from the show.

"The production company and the Scott brothers loved working with us," Lange said. "They were highly complimentary and said we were the best construction company they ever worked with on a show."

With a production schedule that was set three months in advance, Lange noted, there was no breaking that timetable during filming last year. "We had to make it work and finish the jobs by the contract dates," he said, "even with little snafus here and there on the projects." Lange said that his workers met every deadline, although on the Eastchester home it meant that crews worked until 2:00 am, and wrong-sized custom cabinet doors arrived at the Rockland home.

Viewers can expect to see shots of Lange's workers in company uniforms on the show, quick cameos of Lange himself, and his company vans. After the show airs, Lange added, he can use still photos from the episodes on his company website, as well as the logo "As Seen on Property Brothers." No stranger to television work, Lange appeared with Ken Rosato, WABC Eyewitness News This Morning anchor, several years ago on Fixing Your House Up For Spring segments. He was also tapped by NPR to film reports on the housing industry.

"Property Brothers: Buying and Selling was an amazing experience for me," Lange said. "I got to do a lot for my men and send different crews to the jobs so that everybody had some opportunity for camera exposure."

Artie Lange III is the fourth-generation Arthur Lange at the helm of Arthur Lange Inc. "My great grandfather started this company in 1910," he said. Then his grandfather ran it, as did his father from the early 1970s into the early 2000s. "And then I took over. There aren't many people in the 10708 zip code who don't know our family and history."

Books & Culture

Bronxville Public Library

The Bronxville Public Library traces its origins back to 1875, when it was a small lending library housed in a room attached to the “Bronxville Model School.” The Library was officially chartered in 1906 and moved into the Village Hall Building. The needs of the library grew with the town and, in 1942, a new standalone building was erected, which is where the Library is today. Over the years, the Library was renovated and expanded to meet the needs of the community.

The Library has wonderful resources for adults and children and offers a comfortable and relaxing environment. The Library also houses a fine art collection, consisting principally of Bronxville painters and sculptors.

The Library offers special events, art exhibitions, and programs for adults, young adults and children.  All events are open to the public, unless otherwise indicated.
