Is the ‘Selling Sunset’ Cast Actual Real Estate Agents? Chrissy Teigen Has a Theory

On Selling Sunset, as you watch the cast drama, fabulous fashions and extended vacation time, you may wonder: Does the Netflix cast actually work as real estate agents at The Oppenheim Group?

Chrissy Teigen raised the question via Twitter on Tuesday, August 18. “I will say, I look at L.A. real estate a lot and have never seen any of these people LOL. Either have our agents, who I have obsessively asked,” the cookbook author, 34, wrote after binging all three seasons. 

She wasn’t kidding when she says she house hunts frequently because she’s had first-hand encounters with some of the cast of Million Dollar Listing

“I see them all the time in L.A.! And bought from John [Gomes] and Frederick [Eklund] in New York,” Chrissy responded when a fan asked about the Bravo show. 

So, that begs the question, are cast members like Christine QuinnChrishell StauseMary Fitzgerald and Heather Rae Young actually out hustling to sell houses?

First and foremost, The Oppenheim Group is a real brokerage on the Sunset Strip in West Hollywood. All the women in the cast are listed on the website as agents. However, there are also five more agents and three additional staff members. 

Christine also confirmed she took the California Real Estate Exam after studying for “like three months” during season 1. 

As the show rises in popularity, the cast will obviously get more opportunities for outside gigs, like promoting products on their social media accounts or making paid appearances at events. Mary has promoted Alfa Vitamins for her followers while Chrishell also works as an actor. Basically, there’s no shame in a side hustle — and it helps promote the Netflix show.

Selling Sunset is an amazing mix of multi-million dollar homes and cast drama. However, Jason admitted he was a bit “misled” about what the premise of the show would be. 

“Had I known the show would be this focused on our personal lives I probably wouldn’t have signed up for it,” the lawyer-turned-broker told Hello! in August 2020. “I wanted it to be all about the nuances of real estate, but I now realize the show I envisaged wouldn’t be that popular! I’ve come to accept the idea that I’m on more of a reality show than a real-estate show.”

According to the outlet, Jason is currently trying to sell Orlando Bloom’s house. So, to Chrissy’s question, it seems like the Oppenheim agents are around town. The ladies of brokerage also want fans to know that they’re hustling hard moving properties around Los Angeles. Keep scrolling to see how the casts’ reactions!
