Powerhouse real estate broker and designer Egypt Sherrod and her husband, builder Mike Jackson, know plenty about juggling booming property businesses, pleasing clients, managing a home and raising three daughters—and they make it look effortless and fun in their new HGTV series Married to Real Estate.
In the eight-episode season, Egypt and Mike will marry their considerable complementary talents to help families land a perfect home in their ideal neighborhood.
“I’m obsessed with real estate and helping people find their perfect home,” Egypt said. “Mike and I find families a house in the right neighborhood and renovate it into their dream home—with the goal that they move in with equity in their new place. We aim to over-deliver for our clients.”
Egypt will leverage her knowledge of the housing market, financial prowess, and design sensibilities—skills she honed in her business life and as the star of her HGTV hit series Property Virgins and Flipping Virgins—to find affordable houses in desirable Metro Atlanta locations for her clients. And, with smart expenditures that yield breathtaking results, Mike and his team will renovate the properties to help increase their value and return on investment.
“Egypt and I work well together, and we enjoy working together,” Mike said. “We’ve lived in and renovated 11 homes that we eventually sold for a profit, so we’re able to advise our clients on how to spend their money the right way to maximize a home’s value.”
Throughout the season, Egypt and Mike also will collaborate and compromise to manage their own personal and home projects, including building a basement design studio, searching for a new office space and creating a big girl bedroom for their youngest child.
The series premieres on HGTV Thursday, Jan. 13, at 9 p.m. ET/PT
