Bristol & Aubrey Marunde

Hosts of HGTV's Flip or Flop Vegas

Contractor and MMA fighter Bristol Marunde and his wife, real estate agent and designer Aubrey, showcase their home renovation and flipping skills on HGTV’s Flip or Flop Vegas.

Since 2009, the couple has renovated more than 150 homes in Sin City through Alter Luxury, their real estate brokerage and design+build firm in Henderson, Nevada. Each of the Marundes' flips embodies true Las Vegas style, taking the character of a home and providing a glam update designed with the perfect buyer in mind. At the Richmond Home + Garden Show, they will be talking about their time on the show, their favorite flips (and flops), and answering guests’ question about their own projects.
