It's been a challenging year for real estate since Season One of Flipping Out. The tone of the market has turned to gloom and doom. The lending crisis has dramatically affected the flipping business, certainly in a negative way, but there is a silver lining -- it's an amazing time to buy and there is a lot of opportunity to purchase property as a long-term investment. During the last eight years, we experienced a huge real estate boom as we saw a lot of over-valued junk sell for ridiculous prices. Also during this time, construction prices soared to a level of absurdity, so the recent correction is helping to stabilize a bull market that no economy could sustain.
Here at Jeff Lewis's office, we've made some positive changes. Last season, I decided to let Stephen Bowman go from my staff, not because of his work output. It was his attitude, which had become negative and draining. By the way, I did it in a rational, civil, and professional manner, off-camera, with no drama. It looks like my therapy is working! I promoted former trash guy, Chris Elwood, first to house assistant and then to house manager. Then I hired Chris Keslar to assist Chris Elwood. So far, so good, as the morale of my staff is up, no matter the predictions. At Jeff Lewis's office, we make our own predictions based on the truth, rather than the hype. And on what we know we can accomplish as a team.
Jeff! I think you are AWESOME!!! I love to laugh at Jenni's reactions to stuff. You are lucky to have her as your slave. I love how talented you are!!! I want to see more seasons!!!!
Flipping houses in California... sounds like a great idea at this point. Maybe you should start flipping tents in tent city
Hi jeff i love this show and your so funny but i have a question when does season 2 of flipping out start. plese e-mail when.
Thought I was the only one who gets freaked out if the t-paper is turned the wrong way or that vase needs to be turned slightly to the left or right, I cannot help it its my way of doing things or else, thank goodness my husband doesnt act like he minds to much but it took me 37 days to pick out paint for our dining room but it looks fantastic now & all is good. Thanks to Bravo for putting the show on.
Jeff, I love your show! You are so darling when you make your comments, with that innocent look on your face. I love Zoila as well, I think that the two of you are what make the show! I can not believe that I am glued to the TV when ever you come on. I will share a little secret with you, My 15 year old son came into the room when "Spirit" had died, and well he got a big kick out of you, and when the lady and her son walked in the house when yall had put spider poison and they got sick. well he is now a fan, i guess we are a little dysfunctional as well. hehehehe anyway love you and your show!
