David and Chenoa Rivera
David and Chenoa Rivera, hosts of HGTV’s Rustic Rehab, buy, renovate and sell homes in Paradise, California. David, a real estate investor who oversees construction on their projects, and Chenoa, a real estate agent and designer with a rustic flair, work together to flip more than 30 homes a year in this popular destination nestled in the foothills of Sierra Nevada Mountains.
A Hawaii native, David moved to California to pursue his dream of a career in professional football. He received a full scholarship to play football at a Missouri university, but, after a game-ending injury, moved back to California to finish school at Chico State University. While there, he met Chenoa, who earned her business degree while working part time and raising two daughters. They married in 2008 and later began a new venture in real estate, acquiring rental properties that quickly turned into a passion for real estate investing. Their blended family now includes four children with ages ranging from 20 months to 20-years-old.
