Kortney Wilson on set of Making It Home

Kortney Wilson

Kortney Wilson is the co-host and lead designer of HGTV Canada's Making It Home with Kortney & Kenny and the Canadian Screen Awards-nominated Masters of Flip. Known for bringing her creative vision to each renovation, Kortney isn’t afraid to go bold with her design choices and transform a space from unremarkable to inspirational. Originally from Sudbury, Ontario, Kortney moved to Nashville, Tennessee in her late teens with a record deal soon in hand. Her storybook entrance into country music became a search for a different creative and entrepreneurial outlet, however, as she started a family. Drawn to interior design but short on cash, Kortney started teaching herself through online guides and magazines as she worked toward her realtor license. Shortly after, she started an award-winning real estate team and incorporated her passion for interior design into flipping and restoring run-down homes. Now 15 years in, Kortney has flipped over 150 houses and has been a leading force in revitalizing East Nashville into the hugely desirable neighbourhood it is today. She credits her success as a realtor, TV host, author, and entrepreneur—she’s also the creator of home décor line Kort & Co.—to her biggest accomplishment: being a mom to three children and learning to juggle life one day at a time.

From demo days to final decor touches, these 10 badass women come armed with a bursting tool belt.
