Buzz Leer grew up in the frozen tundra of Minnesota. After crawling out of an igloo upon graduation with a BFA degree in Acting / Directing from the University of North Dakota, he headed to sunny California. Traveling and working between Los Angeles and San Francisco Buzz compiled multiple Television, Film, Theatre and Modeling credits. His 5 season, 65 episode run as the Host of "House Detective" on HGTV earned him awesome reviews as well as instant recognition shopping the aisles at Home Depot. Buzz was also a Real Estate TV Host/Spokesperson for 2 seasons on “Living Here: San Francisco.” Landing in Chicago for a “temporary” gig in 2015 has turned into an almost 6 year run earning additional acting/modeling credits on Network TV (NBC, ABC, CNBC, FOX), Infomercials, National/Regional Commercials, TV Shopping Host (ShopHQ, Bulldog Network), and Commercial/Fashion Modeling projects. When Buzz is not on camera you can find him running and exercising on the shores of Lake Michigan year around! He is an avid runner, hiker and outdoor enthusiast as well as big sports fan (baseball, soccer, hockey, football). His crowning achievement is raising 4 amazing children and most recently becoming a Grandpa!
