New York [Aug. 2, 2018] Lackluster Southern homes get a complete overhaul from expert house flippers Ken and Anita Corsini in the sophomore season of HGTV’s Flip or Flop Atlanta. The new episodes, which premiere on Thursday, Sept. 13, at 9 p.m. ET/PT, showcase the Corsinis’ sharp eye for the investment potential in the city’s worst properties. Ken, a licensed contractor, and Anita, a real estate and design expert, find neglected houses in Atlanta’s coveted neighborhoods and infuse them with charming details to create dream family homes. During each renovation, Ken crunches the numbers while Anita incorporates high-end finishes into every design—sticking to the budget and attracting motivated buyers in this hot real estate market.
“Sometimes you must spend money to make money,” said Anita. “The special touches we add make a big difference and help knock buyers’ socks off.”
“We take on the toughest projects and turn them into some of the best homes in the South,” added Ken.
Attracting more than 16 million viewers in its first season, Flip or Flop Atlanta stars the couple as they run a successful real estate and construction company while raising three young children. Although construction challenges lurk around every corner, Ken and Anita say it’s important to stay calm under pressure and have fun in their job and relationship.
“We’ve been married a long time and truly love working together, but sometimes we don’t see eye-to-eye when we are flipping houses,” said Ken. “We do, however, make a lot of corny jokes in the process.” Anita chimed in, “For us, the best part is showing viewers our silly and goofy side. Our team knows how to work around our craziness and inside jokes.”
In the premiere episode, the couple snags a dilapidated Craftsman with a small price tag. They redeem the property with a complete gut and secure the foundation. To maximize the limited square footage, Ken and Anita create an open living area that features a kitchen with an eclectic vibe. They also add a master suite with a rustic barn door built from the home’s salvaged wood siding.
