KORTNEY & DAVE WILSON
MASTERS OF FLIP
What began as two separate musical careers has become a lifelong partnership for Kortney and Dave Wilson. After trading in their microphones for tool belts, the Canadian-born Nashville couple began flipping houses while raising their children, and in the process, have become two of television’s favorite home renovation experts.
In 2009, CMT Canada debuted a reality show called “Meet the Wilsons”. For two seasons, cameras followed the couple and their family on their house-flipping adventures. Soon after, Kortney and Dave began interacting with their fans as hosts of their own daytime talk show on CMT’s, “Kortney & Dave: By Request”. Since then, Kortney, an award-winning Realtor and design visionary, and Dave, a tireless flipper with a nose for profit, have become the stars of the hit HGTV series: Masters Of Flip. Now in it’s fourth season, the series follows the witty husband and wife team through the mess and stress of renovation, the magic of transformation and the anticipation of enormous profits, as they breathe new life into old, run-down Nashville homes.
The hometown of country music has been experiencing a dramatic resurgence in both new home starts & renovations and house flipping masters Kortney and Dave Wilson are leading the charge; 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.
