Oppenheim Group Boss Responds to Claims That ‘Selling Sunset’ Stars Aren’t Licensed Agents


Jason Oppenheim, president and founder of The Oppenheim Group, is speaking out about claims that the ladies of Selling Sunset aren’t licensed real estate agents.

Jason is the boss of realtors Chrishell Stause, Heather Rae Young, Christine Quinn, Mary Fitzgerald, Davina Portraz, Maya Vander and Amanza Smith, all of whom star in the real estate reality series.

“Mary, Heather, Maya, and Christine were licensed and successful real estate agents at The Oppenheim Group many years prior to filming our show. Amanza worked with us as a designer, and has been a close friend of Mary’s and mine for many years. Chrishell was a practicing agent at another brokerage, many years previous to filming Selling Sunset. As a licensed agent, Davina had transacted many deals before joining the team in 2018,” Jason said to People magazine.

He continued, “Any insinuation that the agents on our show are not experienced, successful, or licensed, evidences a complete disregard for the facts. Even a superficial investigation would identify previous team photos, hundreds of millions in transacted sales, and more than 50 years of combined licensed real estate experience from these agents.”

Earlier this week, while defending the cast’s behavior toward one another, Chrissy Teigen had revealed that some of her friends in the industry weren’t familiar with the Selling Sunset agents.

Well, at least he’s clearing the air — or trying to, at least!
