She pretended to thank them. With over 200 messages within a short period of time, she then immediately took her profile picture down, and scanned through the messages

Then her eyes stuck on a message from a guy. This guy – his kind and twinkly eyes dazzled her and she texted him back – “Are you trustworthy?”

Within a few days, he invited her to his house and promised to cook for her. She hesitated and asked if he could come to Toronto. The next day, Ryan was in Toronto they went to dinner in Jack Astor’s, a local bar and grill.

Additional Information

Kortney moved to Nashville two decades ago in 1997. She started flipping houses as she was trying to support her family. She says, she tried finding small homes that need a little renovation. Then, she would renovate them and flip them at a good profit.

She says one needs to have a detailed plan, find the right mentor, find like-minded investors, and stick to the budget to succeed. One secret she revealed was that she was following artists when choosing the location homes she flipped.

Also, she says she focuses on the designing of the backyard and outdoor space which seems to be a huge plus point in flipping homes these days.

In January 2021, the HGTV Canada series Making It Home cast homeowners in Toronto, Nashville, and Tennessee to renovate outdated homes into stunning homes.
