Tarek and Christina were successful real estate agents during the boom period and when the market tanked, they traded in their $6,000-a-month mortgage for a $700-per-month apartment, swapped luxury cars for modest ones and shared Subway sandwiches – all while expecting the birth of their first child. Since then, the El Moussas have bounced back – A couple of years ago, the couple, with business partner Pete de Best, bought their first investment house in Santa Ana for $115k. The El Moussas sold the property and split the $34k in profits with de Best – and the trio kept going. Now the trio is focused on building and growing their real estate investment company, Next Level Property Investments, LLC, a career move that has landed them a new reality series, “Flip or Flop,” which is now the #1 nationally aired show on the HGTV network. Next Level Property Investments, LLC is currently investing in over 100 deals per year, and is expanding its operations nationwide to not only include single family homes, but also commercial real estate investments as well as full blown development projects.

Tarek El Moussa

Tarek is the star of HGTV’s hit show Flip or Flop. Tarek earned his real estate license at age 21 and quickly made a name for himself in Orange County, Calif. At the height of the housing boom, he was selling multimillion-dollar mansions like hotcakes. When the housing bubble burst, however, his empire came crashing down, and Tarek had to find another way to pursue his real estate passion. With a family that now includes children Taylor and Brayden to support, he has carved out a new niche for himself in the world of real estate: flipping distressed properties. He buys foreclosures, short sales and real-estate owned properties for cash, but, as Tarek would say, “No risk, no reward! I’ll buy any property, anywhere, as long as it’s the right price.”
