Real estate agent and contractor Jessie Rodriguez and his design-savvy wife Tina turn their love of Southern California vintage homes into profitable transformations in the second season of HGTV’s Vintage Flip. Premiering Thursday, May 25, at 11 p.m. ET/PT, the new half-hour episodes showcase the creative couple as they buy, renovate and sell century-old homes in desirable SoCal communities. Restoring more than 250 properties to date, Jessie and Tina take great care to preserve homes’ original features while adding contemporary details that give the structures new life.
“Flipping vintage houses is risky,” said Jessie. “You never know what you’re going to find when you start digging into ancient walls. But the risk is worth the reward.”
In the season premiere, Jessie and Tina tackle the renovation of a 1912 Craftsman-style bungalow in San Dimas, a community that offers a small-town feel and unique architecture. The couple chooses design elements, including color schemes and moldings, that bring back the home’s original Craftsman style. They also gut the kitchen and bathroom to incorporate modern amenities that appeal to today’s buyer.
“The work we do is more than flipping,” said Tina. “We want the families who buy our restored homes to love and appreciate them.”
