Those who know Cristy Lee from television know her as the host of such engine-oriented cable series as Garage Squad, Celebrity IOU Joyride, and the female-focused All Girls Garage. Ah, but this multitalented Clarkston resident has more than gears and grease under her rolled-up sleeves. Lee is also a recognized guru at real estate, remodeling, and renovation, as she'll demonstrate in her new made-in-Michigan series Steal This House, premiering at 9 p.m. Saturday on HGTV. In fact, it was her passion for property that inspired the Florida native to drop out of college 18 years ago, sell her motorcycle, pack her Volkswagen Jetta to overflowing, and forsake Daytona Beach for…Detroit.
