At the height of the housing boom, he was selling multi-million dollar mansions like hotcakes, but when the housing bubble burst, his empire came crashing down and he had to find another way to pursue his real estate passion. With a family to support, he carved out a new niche for himself in the world of real estate. flipping distressed properties. He would buy foreclosures and short sales, renovate these properties and then sell them for higher price. Much like her husband, Christina is a real estate shark.

Her experience as a real estate agent helps to steer the family business into a stable direction as they strive to reclaim the American dream, while raising their daughter Taylor.
