When shooting till late, Austin Coleman and Raisa Kuddus often play music and try to have fun to make sure that they don't feel fatigued
HGTV, after launching several hit renovation shows like 'Love It or List It', 'Good Bones' and 'Fixer + Upper', is now introducing renovation pros Raisa Kuddus and Austin Coleman to help first-time homeowners transform their starter homes without breaking the bank in the 'First Home Fix'.
Affordable financing for essential home repairs in small, family-owned properties across New York City is made possible through the Home Fix program, which was recently announced by the Center for NYC Neighborhoods (the Center) and the New York City Department of Housing Preservation and Development (HPD). A low-income elderly homeowner in Brooklyn’s Canarsie neighborhood received roughly $50,000 in the form of a no-interest, forgiving loan to carry out much-needed renovations, such as a new roof, structural repairs, and window replacement and is undertaken by Raisa Kuddus and Austin Coleman.
Who are HGTV's 'First Home Fix' hosts?
Raisa Kuddus is an artist and designer who relies stylistically on her love of color, design history and nature to create one-of-a-kind spaces.
Austin Coleman, co-host of HGTV's First Home Fix, is a skilled builder and woodworker, who is passionate about incorporating unique custom pieces into each of his projects.
Are Austin Coleman and Raisa Kuddus married?
While multiple websites say that the renovator couple is married there is no evidence to suggest that. While both of them address each other, even publicly, as partners, the couple does seem to be in a relationship. The couple met at a BMX shoot after party where Austin was spellbound by looking at a mural painted by now partner Raisa. Austin inquired about the artist and after much effort was directed to the 'Fix Home First' co-host. The two talked and danced all night. A week later Austin called Raisa up and told her how much he loved talking to her and well, the rest is history.
When asked how it feels to film together, they said it feels like a concept of trust falling. When shooting till late, they often play music and try to have fun to make sure that they don't feel fatigued. They also have a ritual where one says "Are we going to have fun, regardless?" and the other says "A 1000%."
