The real estate market plummeted in 2008, but astute couple Tarek and Christina El Moussa have been making a fortune by buying distressed homes, renovating them, and reselling them for a tidy profit. Now, they have announced their mutual separation but insist that business will continue as usual.

It is ironic that the man who has breathed new life into so many old houses, is now facing the dissolution of his own home and marriage. The man is Tarek El Moussa who, along with his wife, has made a killing in the real estate business in Orange County, California. The Tarek El Moussa divorce announcement has come as a surprise to many of their fans. Tarek El Moussa’s wife, Christina El Moussa, and Tarek himself have announced their separation, almost six months after police were called to their California home. We will tell you all we know about Tarek El Moussa’s wiki right here.

Turning Homes Inside Out

Tarek El Moussa and his wife are both real estate agents who routinely buy a distressed property, renovate it, and sell it at a profit to a third party. They have been doing this since 2008, when the real estate market crashed in the United States. They even have a TV series called Flip or Flop: Selling Summer on HGTV that documents their work. Christina El Moussa’s expertise is in design, and the show documents the process as the duo go about buying, renovating, and reselling the newly furbished homes.

Learning Things the Hard Way

Tarek El Moussa earned his real estate license when he was 21. He met his wife shortly after graduating from college. They were both selling real estate in the southern California area, after the 2008 stock market crash. They went from living in a $6,000/month home to a $700/month apartment. Traumatized by their bad experience, the couple came upon the idea of renovating homes and selling them at a profit. They mostly buy homes from the banks who hold them.


No wonder Tarek El Moussa’s net worth is a healthy $3.0 millionand sure to grow!

The Good Life

People want to know “Is Tarek El Moussa Arab?” According to sources, he is not. He was born and raised by American parents. Tarek El Moussa’s age just 35 years, and though his name may suggest otherwise, he is of American ancestry. He married Christina El Moussa in 2009 and they have two children together. Their daughter’s name is Taylor El Moussa, and their son’s name is Brayden El Moussa. Tarek El Moussa’s Instagram account is full of lovely pictures of his wife, his two children, and their beautiful home. It is obvious that the couple have great love for their children and an eye for fine living.

Business As Usual

The El Moussas run their own real estate agency called The El Moussa Group in Orange County, where they do very well. Now that they have announced their separation, people are wondering what will happen to their joint business. The couple have released a statement saying that even though they are separating due to personal reasons, they will continue to work professionally. They admitted that there were challenges in their marriage, but they have to continue to be good parents to their children. HGTV has announced that they will continue to air episodes of Flip or Flop and the production will continue as scheduled.
