Dave and Kortney Wilson

Kortney and Dave Wilson, HGTV Stars

Headlining this year’s show are celebrity guests Dave and Kortney Wilson, co-hosts of HGTV’s Masters of Flip. In each episode of Masters of Flip, house-flipping experts Dave and Kortney breathe new life into an old, rundown Nashville home. With limited timelines and tight budgets, they take on the challenge of transforming each real estate disaster into a stunning family dream home.

Dave and Kortney will share their house-flipping and renovation secrets at the show in a presentation on Saturday, April 8 at 1:30 p.m. Following the presentation, they will host a Meet and Greet session for fans to take pictures and get autographs.
