The First “Flip”

Our first “flip” wasn’t really a flip, but it definitely wasn’t a flop. Located in Holly Springs, this 3/2 Ranch on 1.25 acres was home. It took 4 years of hard work, and we did most of it ourselves. We have never looked at a house in the same way again and have been #flippingraleigh ever since.
