HGTV has decided to cancel “Flip or Flop Atlanta,” one of many spin-offs of the original, after just two seasons.
Anita and Ken Corsini of Woodstock were the realtors and hosts on the show. They run Red Barn Homes, which handles real estate and construction.
They are flipping experts. In an interview in 2017, they said they had flipped more than 600 homes since 2005.
Season one aired in 2017 and season two last year. Repeats will continue to air through the end of the year, an HGTV spokeswoman said.
Over two seasons, HGTV aired 28 episodes as the Corsinis rehabbed houses from neighborhoods such as East End, Pine Lake, Marietta, Woodstock, Austell, Smyrna and East Lake. They helped buyers generate anywhere from $25,000 to $190,000 in profit.
On the show and in person, the Corsinis have an easy-going rapport with no real tension. They'r'e both smart number crunchers. She has better design skills. He loves making deals and taking risks. Combined, they have created a successful business.
"We don't butt heads that much," Ken said to me in 2017. "It may not make for great TV but we know each other's strengths. We complement each other. We enjoy taking something distressed and turning them into something beautiful. We increase value in the neighborhood. We feel we do something good for the city."
