Military Makeover with Montel Welcomes Global City Development as a Major Supporter of the Ziegler Family Home Makeover

Jupiter, FL (March 30, 2022) - Military Makeover with Montel, BrandStar’s award-winning home improvement show on Lifetime focuses on how to better the lives of former military by improving their homes. This is the mantra that sets this show apart from other home makeover shows. Helping to create a home that provides comfort and safety, along with the newest technology and latest design styles, for those who have dedicated their lives to protecting others, is the goal of each Military Makeover.

Our landmark 30th Military Makeover takes place in Jupiter, Florida at the home of Justin and Kristie Ziegler, who both served in the Air Force. Staff Sergeant Justin Ziegler was assigned to the 60th CES Wing as a fire Protection Technician and was deployed to Afghanistan in support of “Operation Enduring Freedom.” This role led to him being responsible for the safety of more than 2000 troops and more than $750 million worth of aircraft.

Senior Airman Kristie Ziegler trained as a Dietary Technician. She was awarded “Airman of the Year” in 2006, for her dedicated service. Once deployed to Bagram Air Force base in Afghanistan, Kristie’s role changed to providing treatment to soldiers wounded in battle, as well as local civilians.

This Military Makeover is made possible with the help of Global City Development. Their donation has made multiple aspects of this Military Makeover renovation possible. Since the company’s founding in 2014, projects have been fully funded that will provide more than $1 billion of benefits to public universities and veterans of the US armed forces. Global City’s goal by 2025 is to put in place projects that will generate an additional $4 billion in benefits to significant social institutions. Primary beneficiaries of the firm’s work, so far, have been Florida International University and the American Legion.

“We are proud to be a part of ‘Military Makeover with Montel,’ assisting with the Ziegler makeover. We work with many associates who are former military, some with children currently in the military so we are dedicated to providing for those who have given so much for us,” says Diego Procel, Principal of Global City Development.

BrandStar’s “Military Makeover with Montel” brings brands together that will help create a warm and comfortable home for the Ziegler family, which will help heal and improve their lives,” says BrandStar Founder and CEO, Mark Alfieri.

BrandStar’s award winning TV Programming airs on Lifetime Television, Bloomberg, FOX Business and numerous syndicated outlets, and includes shows such as Designing Spaces, currently in its 15th year, The Balancing Act, in its 20th year, Inside the Blueprint and Access Health.
