Moving on up! 90 Day Fiancé couple Elizabeth Potthast and Andrei Castravet have come a long way. Not only is the Moldova native set in a new career as a realtor, but Elizabeth and Andrei have also purchased a new home.
“It means a lot for me to own a house in America,” Andrei explained on the debut of season 7 of Happily Ever After? in August 2022. “Because, being an immigrant, to own a house is a huge step. It symbolizes my American dream itself.”
The Tampa, Florida home, features an open kitchen, pocket doors and even a future studio for Elizabeth’s potential singing career. On the series, the couple hosted a housewarming party for their friends, colleagues and to Andrei’s displeasure — Elizabeth’s family.
The couple first announced the major real estate purchase to their fans in November 2021.
“Home Sweet Home. #reels #reeloftheday #ourhouse #castravetresidence #homesweethome,” the mom of one captioned an Instagram post giving a first look at their completed property.
In the before-and-after clip, it displayed the couple’s house during the construction process with wood panels and dirt on the floor juxtaposed next to the finished result.
Several fans were congratulating the 90 Day Fiancé: Happily Ever After? stars on this exciting step on their journey together even before the Castravets gave a tour of their interior.
“The anticipation of making this video! How long did you have to wait? Love it,” one social media user wrote, to which Elizabeth replied, “Nine whole months [laughing emoji]. Seemed like a century.”
In the comments section, others were asking if Elizabeth’s father, Chuck Potthast, paid for the property or cosigned the papers before it was built. However, some were also pointing out that although Andrei previously did not work because he was a stay-at-home dad, he has since found a way to help contribute to their income.
Both Elizabeth and Andrei are the owners of Castravet, INC, In Touch confirmed in April 2021, with Andrei listed as the president of the company and Libby listed as the vice president.
According to online records obtained by In Touch, Andrei was issued a license in real estate sales in the state of Florida in 2020, which is current and in good standing until March 2022.
“I’m planning to open my own business and to [flip] houses,” Andrei said about his new business venture during the season 6 90 Day Fiancé: Happily Ever After? premiere in April 2021.
