Flip or Flop Vegas
Aubrey & Bristol Marunde are the owners of Alter Luxury, a real estate brokerage and design+build firm in Henderson, Nevada, and they are the stars of HGTV’s hit home renovation television show, Flip or Flop Vegas.
Together, they renovated their first house in 2009, and have since completed over 140 homes in Nevada and Washington.
When Aubrey and Bristol are not renovating houses, designing their own line of home furnishing products, redesigning kitchens for their clients, promoting fights in the Pacific Northwest, selling luxury homes, filming the new season of Flip or Flop Vegas on HGTV, or training for the next MMA fight, they can probably be found in the wilderness, camping with their two young boys and recharging their batteries.

Stephen moved to Salt Lake City nearly 30 years ago from Southern California. He always enjoyed planting a modest garden, but never really needed to worry about seasons, since there were basically only two and gardening was always successful. That all changed when he started trying to grow a traditional line row garden in Utah. (Boy, did it change!) Gardening suddenly became something that required planning, especially when it came to preparation and timing. When you consider that Mother’s Day has been tagged as the last day for frost, yet sometimes Utah sees snow well into June, the shortened seasons became a challenge.
Stephen’s path of how to successfully garden organically in Utah. Quite by accident, he discovered a prototype for a vinyl planter at a vinyl shop where he was working. Not very well made, he decided to experiment with the concept. Eight incarnations later, a well-designed, long lasting raised-bed planter was born.
Thirteen years later, hundreds of happy gardeners all along the Wasatch Front, and dozens of books and classes under his belt. Stephen is stepping onto the design stage to talk about the benefits of raised-bed gardening Jan 6th at 7pm & Jan 7th at 3pm
