In today’s market, it’s easy to get discouraged after writing an offer and being beat out by another buyer. But imagining that happening eight times. In the latest episode of HGTV’s “Call the Closer,” that’s exactly what happened to one couple looking to settle into a new home before getting married. And that’s when they, well, called the “closer” (host and real estate expert Lauren Risley).

Drew and Michelle had been dating for 10 years and wanted to find a more spacious place before becoming newlyweds, and they were looking for the right fixer upper to call home. Once they sealed the deal on a property in Brentwood, a suburb of St. Louis, Risley wasted no time getting to work so the place could be move-in ready before their wedding.
