Estate agents operate in the Hollywood Hills and Sunset Strip, Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Bel Air, Malibu, and beyond, which is shown heavily on Selling Sunset.

Are the Selling Sunset cast real estate agents?

Yes. Chrissy Teigen did question their status on Twitter, as she claims she has “never seen any of these people” when looking at Los Angeles real estate. Curiosity arose among fans who questioned if her tweets were true.

However, on top of the Oppenheim Group showing on Google Maps, a public document shows Davina Potratz’s broker’s license, while the other cast members are listed as salespersons (which is the equivalent to licensed agents in California).

Some of the agents also have their work at the Oppenheim Group listed on their LinkedIn accounts, including Maya Vander and Davina Potratz. The company also has other agents working for them, as listed on their website, such as Youtuber Graham Stephan who regularly makes videos on real estate.

Jason Oppenheim responded to the Chrissy’s tweets. He first reacted by saying:

Chrissy, thanks for watching our show! Regarding your agent’s knowledge of members of my team, I respectfully don’t know him either although that doesn’t mean he isn’t successful and didn’t just sell you a stunning home in Weho (seriously, I love your new house).
