A program in which Sivan interviews various real estate professionals on emerging neighborhoods, industry trends and of course mortgage options for buyers of residential property, Mortgage Talk has become a valuable informational tool for potential buyers and developers alike--and in the process has made Sivan something of a rising industry celebrity.

A recent episode, a repeat of which will air on Thursday, December 23 at 8:00 pm, details waterfront real estate development in Brooklyn. During the production of the show, which is the latest in an ongoing series, Sivan said she was surprised by how many developers wanted to come on as guests. Swamped "Swamped" is the seventeenth episode of The Batman's second season. It originally aired in North America on June 11, 2005. Plot Synopsis

 with interest, she has spun off a documentary series as well, which more thoroughly explores areas of growing real estate value such as Harlem, Manhattan's Downtown, and the New Jersey waterfront.

"The reason why the shows have been so successful is because nowhere else is there a resource like this that is dedicated to taking buyers step by step through all the processes they need to identify and buy good real estate," Sivan said.

And while the show gives first time buyers of residential property, and lately commercial as well, some idea of where to invest, seasoned professionals have been tuning in tuning in,

"This show is for everybody," Sivan said. "It gives developers a heads up or an affirmation A solemn and formal declaration of the truth of a statement, such as an Affidavit or the actual or prospective testimony of a witness or a party that takes the place of an oath. An affirmation is also used when a person cannot take an oath because of religious convictions.  of what neighborhoods are growing and becoming more lucrative and it also gives first time homeowners advice on how to get the best mortgage."

The business, based on these connections she has made through her adventures in television, has made Sivan one of the top performers at The New York New York, state, United States

Bolstering her mortgage business hasn't been Sivan's motivation to continue producing the show however, rather it is the chance for her to teach as well as learn more about real estate.

"When I make a show whether it's my talk show or a documentary, each time I learn so much more about finance and development," Sivan said.

And while the success of her show, which is currently being courted by larger cable networks, could keep Sivan on air for a long time to come, she says that real estate development is the arena she is most interested in pursuing in the future. Although the ability to finance multimillion-dollar developments takes years of effort, at the rate at which Sivan has so far achieved success, she might realize her dream sooner rather than later.

Born in Israel, Sivan who is 26, moved to France with her family at the age of 12. After spending 6 months in the Israeli army at the age of 20, she came to the United States United States, officially United States of America, republic (2005 est. pop. 295,734,000), 3,539,227 sq mi (9,166,598 sq km), North America.

"I know what it's like to start without a lot and so I love the fact that my show helps first homebuyers realize their dreams of owning great property," Sivan said.

"The show really reflects my passion to teach people and also learn myself about real estate and that's why I think it has been so successful."
