Meet the Experts
KORTNEY AND DAVE WILSON MASTERS OF FLIP
What began as two separate musical careers has become a lifelong partnership for Kortney and Dave Wilson. After a solid run as a country music duo, they traded in their microphones began flipping houses while raising their three children.
With over 60 homes flipped, Kortney and Dave are known for their acute knowledge of the local real estate market and for transforming run-down disasters into one-of-a-kind family homes.
In their hit Television Series Masters of Flip, Kortney and Dave Wilson breathe new life into rundown homes. With limited timelines and budgets, they transform each disaster into a stunning dream home.
Her trademark hair and big energy make Tiffany Pratt unforgettable. But her hands-on approach to design, and the care she has for her clients, make her irreplaceable.
Tiffany fell in love with beautiful things at a young age when she would memorize every page of Vogue magazine. Today, that same appreciation for beauty has carried through into her day-to-day work. She sees exquisite in the unexpected, mixes old with new, merges elegant with livable, and she lives and breathes her truth that “this can be beautiful.”
LEIGH-ANN ALLAIRE PERRAULT
As a DIY & design expert, Leigh-Ann Allaire Perrault has spent years crafting a unique philosophy for design that fuses ingenuity, whimsy, and quality workmanship - all on a "frugalista" budget.

Amongst the many hats she wears, Leigh-Ann is a regular contributor on Cityline and a spokesperson for Rust-Oleum Canada. With a passion to educate and inspire, Leigh-Ann embraces every opportunity she gets to spark creativity and instill confidence in others who strive to "DO IT YOURSELF".
