What began as two separate musical careers has become a lifelong partnership for Kortney and Dave Wilson. After a solid run as a country music duo, they traded in their microphones for tool belts and began flipping houses while raising their three children.

With over 60 homes flipped to date, Kortney and Dave have become one of Nashville’s premiere house flipping forces, renowned as much for their acute knowledge of the local real estate market as for their artistic design in transforming run-down disasters into stunning one-of-a-kind family homes.

In their hit Television Series Masters of Flip, Kortney and Dave Wilson breathe new life into old, rundown Nashville homes. With limited timelines and even tighter budgets, these Masters of Flip take on the challenge of transforming each real estate disaster into a stunning family dream home. What follows is an exciting journey through the mess and stress of renovation, the magic of transformation and the anticipation of enormous profits.

Her trademark hair and big energy make Tiffany Pratt unforgettable. But her hands-on approach to design, and the care she has for her clients, make her irreplaceable. Tiffany fell in love with beautiful things at a young age when she would memorize every page of Vogue magazine. Today, that same appreciation for beauty has carried through into her day-to-day work. She sees exquisite in the unexpected, mixes old with new, merges elegant with livable, and she lives and breathes her truth that “this can be beautiful.” Tiffany hosts shows on HGTV and is a regular guest expert on CityTV's Cityline. She also recently released her first book: This Can Be Beautiful, and can be seen on the current season of HGTV Canada’s Home to Win.
