Tarek el Moussa is based in Orange County, California, where he works as a real estate agent and house flipper. He is known for his success at buying homes at auction, renovating, and selling them for a profit. Tarek and Christina were successful real estate agents during the boom period and when the market tanked, they set out to find a way to generate income. They decided to use their knowledge of the local real estate market to buy, renovate, and flip houses that they often buy at auction sight unseen. He and his wife Christina are the subjects of the popular HGTV series "Flip or Flop". The show follows the couple through the often tense process of bidding on a property, renovating it and restoring it so that it is competitive on the market, and then reselling it. They have become known as a power couple throughout Southern California. In 2013, a registered nurse and fan of the show wrote to the program's production company. She suggested that a doctor examine a lump that was visible on Tarek's neck which she had seen while watching "Flip or Flop". It proved to be cancer. The program has since followed the couple's business, as well as Tarek's battle with cancer.
