HGTV star Christina Corridor guarantees to not decide your property for those who invite her over.

Because the star of two exhibits on the community, “Christina on the Coast” and “Christina in the Country,” Hall has a talent for looking at a floorplan and picturing what could be changed to make a space more functional.
She enjoys renovating homes more than choosing decor or staging for prospective buyers.
“I like doing the big projects,” Corridor defined. “I like taking down the walls and I like figuring out floor plans and how to make something more functional. I love choosing kitchen material, but I don’t love choosing furniture.”
Corridor started her skilled profession in actual property, the place she met her now ex-husband Tarek El Moussa. After spending a couple of years flipping homes, they obtained their very own HGTV sequence “Flip or Flop,” displaying the method of shopping for, bettering and promoting a house for revenue. The 2 divorced in 2018 however continued to work collectively till 2022 when “Flip or Flop” aired its closing episode after 10 seasons.

Then there’s one thing known as B tales and it’s a background story of the present. These are lengthy days and I’m not going to lie, after I get again residence I am worn out. My schedule in California is a bit simpler.”

She says she does get recognized a lot and for the most part “people are respectful” but public encounters can be awkward. “Airports are where you catch people taking videos of you and they’re not very sly about it. Or they Google you right in front of you. Your face is on their phone, and they say, ‘Is this you?’” Hall also says people have sat down at her booth in restaurants and started a conversation. “That’s a little weird,” she stated.

The last thing I want is for them to say, ‘I don’t want to do this.’”
