Season 2, Episode 8

Retiring to the Islands

Garden State natives Fran and Bob Schmitt are ready to flee the cold of Forked River, N.J., and retire to the island oasis of St. Maarten. Fran has always said that the stork dropped her in the wrong spot, and after they cruised the Caribbean a few years ago, she knew she was meant to live on a tropical island. With the first blast of winter on its way to New Jersey, this couple is eager to find their own island paradise before the first cold snap. Real estate agent Arun Jagtiani signs on to help make that happen.
