Born Christina Meursinge Haack on the 9th July 1983, in Anaheim, California USA, she is a real estate agent and investor, but best known to the world for appearing in the reality TV series “Flip or Flop” (2013-2018), next to her ex-husband, Tarek El Moussa. She came to prominence thanks to their strategy of flipping homes, that is, buying them in a rundown condition and then restoring and selling them for a profit.
Early Life and Education
Christina has been rather secretive about her childhood; other than the fact that she grew up in Anaheim Hills, there isn’t much information about her early life. After school, Christina enrolled at the University of Southern California, from which she obtained a degree in management and sales, and afterwards obtained her real estate license.
Christina then launched her career as a real estate agent, focusing on the Southern Californian market. At the early stage of her career, Christina met Tarek El Moussa, who soon became her business partner, and later her husband. The two formed a real-estate agency – Tarek and Christina: The El Moussa Group – focusing on Orange County, California, which at the time had the highest foreclosure rates in the country. Gradually their business expanded to Arizona and Nevada, with the help of Pete De Best.
2008 Market Crisis
The entire economy was struck by the 2008 crisis, and the El Mousa Group suffered a great loss; the two owners went from living in a $6,000 per month house to a $700 apartment. After several years of hard work for low pay, Tarek and Christina recorded an audition tape of their house flipping, and sent it to HGTV. With no expectations from that enterprise they continued their everyday lives, but one day they received a call from the Pie Town Productions company, while also HGTV researched the couple and their endeavors.
