Before joining her husband to create Married to Real-Estate Egypt Sherrod and Mike Jackson were no strangers to the HGTV audience. Sherrod first appeared on the channel in 2007 as the host of Property Virgins and then shared the spotlight with her husband as a guest star on Flipping Virgins. After both appeared as judges on the second season of Rock the Block, the network was certain that the two needed to host their own show.

The pair’s authenticity and charisma are infectious and attract viewers with ease. On HGTV’s Married to Real Estate, Sherrod and Jackson work with homeowners to make their real estate dreams a reality by finding them properties in their dream neighborhoods. The show also showcases the couple’s personal life and touches on the resourceful ways that they approach work/life balance. The first season of the show attracted over 19 million viewers, earning it a season 2 renewal. The second season is scheduled to premiere early next year (2023).
