Introduction to Tarek El Moussa

Tarek, host HGTV’s 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 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.”
