Two years ago, Ken Corsini received a phone call from a casting director looking to schedule an interview with him and his wife, Anita, for a new television series. (The couple, who share three kids, are the cofounders of Red Barn Homes, a real estate company based in Atlanta.) Anita laughed when she heard: “I told Ken, ‘Nobody is going to put us on TV!’” So when the two sat down to chat with the production company folks on Skype, “We just had fun with it,” she recalls.
Little did they know their happy-go-lucky approach would land them the spot on the small screen. That summer they filmed the pilot of Flipping the South, which showcased their knack for buying, renovating, and reselling properties in and around Atlanta. “We never took ourselves too seriously and enjoyed our time on camera together,” Anita says. “We had a wonderful crew that put us at ease, and they captured our real-life interactions and decision-making process.”
