When the market dried up in 2008, so did Tarek and Christina’s income, and the couple found themselves struggling just to pay bills. They traded in their Mercedes for a Honda and exchanged their $6000 mortgage for a $700/month rented apartment — with a roommate. In 2010, Tarek and Christina did their first flip — it took five months longer than expected, but it turned a modest profit. That was all the proof they needed.
In 2012, HGTV signed the couple to star in their own house-flipping show called Flip or Flop. In addition, the two coach thousands of real estate students every year, sharing their Real Estate Elevated system with others who want to learn how to build the ultimate business and become real estate entrepreneurs.
