"Flip or Flop Nashville"
Series Premiere Thursday, January 18 at 9 PM ET/PT on HGTV
 
          Exes-turned-business-partners DeRon Jenkins and Page Turner are real estate and home renovation experts who rehab and sell homes in HGTV’s Flip or Flop Nashville, the latest installment in the network’s Flip or Flop franchise. The eight-episode series follows the duo who, despite ending their romantic relationship years ago, run a successful house flipping and renovation business. DeRon, a licensed contractor, and Page, a seasoned real estate agent, find the worst properties in Nashville and transform them into stylish and functional family homes.
 
          "We love to buy, renovate and flip houses—but the craziest part is that we’re exes,” said Page. “Thankfully, in business, we work great together.” “Flipping a home successfully is a balancing act,” added DeRon. “You need the right improvements to make the house appealing to buyers, but you don’t want to overspend and lose your profit.”
 
          During the season, Page and DeRon showcase why Nashville is a great place to flip homes, with its booming housing market and older houses that need renovation. In the season premiere, Page surprises DeRon by purchasing a partially renovated house in an in-demand neighborhood. “I can’t believe Page bought this house without telling me,” said DeRon. “That’s probably why we broke up!”
 
          The home, an outdated 1960s rancher, needs a complete overhaul inside and out, including replacing ill-fitting doors and finding matching brick that has been discontinued for decades. To sell the property for top dollar, Page and DeRon incorporate a bright modern kitchen and a large master suite to increase the home’s square footage.
