Jennifer Hawkins insists she's not a 'house flipper'

She may have accumulated a multi-million dollar real estate portfolio since winning Miss Universe in 2004. 

But Jennifer Hawkins, 36, doesn't want to be known as a property flipper.   

Speaking to WSFM's Jonesy And Amanda on Wednesday, the queen insisted that she and her builder husband Jake Wall, 37, are nothing like flippers - a term describing people who buy and quickly resell properties for the purpose of generating profit.

'We don't really house flip. I don't know where that [came from],' the mother-of-one said, adding that her decisions to purchase and offload properties have always been  motivated by 'life changes' rather than profit.    

'It's kind of like, we would just find an amazing piece of land. Jake's a builder so we had that passion, and then something in our life would change and we'd want to move to a different area,' she explained. 

'So we would sell it after maybe three to four, five years. But it seems like a quick amount of time, but yeah, no definitely not house flipping,' Jennifer added.
