On Windy City Rehab, Victoria tackles her dream job of flipping houses in her hometown of Chicago. Her sharp business skills, knowledge of the local market, and desire to create luxurious designs come in handy, since she’s spending an enormous amount of money to score vintage fixer uppers in historic neighborhoods and needs to attract high-end buyers or risk losing substantial investments. With her lead contractor, Donovan Eckhardt, alongside, Victoria revives these homes and — wherever possible — keeps true to their original history, architecture and community roots.
