Kortney Wilson Realtor
She is a licensed Realtor who began interior design by teaching herself through online guides and magazines as she worked toward her realtor license. Shortly after, she started an award-winning real estate team with Village Real Estate called Best Thing Ever Nashville, helping Tennesseans buy, sell, and occasionally flip, residential real estate.
She began flipping houses by renovating their own house. She found it really expensive to hire contractors and it wasn’t a major renovation so she decided to subcontract it herself and consult a contractor. This helped her and her husband save a lot of money on the renovation.
Together with her husband, who at the time was working as a waiter, loved the renovation process and then an agent friend of theirs suggested to them to buy rundown houses and flip them for profit. They took the advice and made $10,000.
