Head of Oppenheim Group Responds to Claims That Selling Sunset Stars Aren't Actually Licensed Agents



Oppenheim's statement comes after fans on social media, including celebrity Chrissy Teigen, expressed doubts over the cast's legitimacy in real estate.

On Wednesday, while defending the cast's behavior toward one another, Teigen revealed that some of her friends in the industry weren't familiar with the Selling Sunset agents.

"I will say, I look at L.A. real estate a lot and have never seen any of these people lol [neither] have our agents, who I have obsessively asked," Teigen tweeted last week.

All of the cast members are listed as agents on The Oppenheim Group website, while Jason Oppenheim is listed as the owner.

After Teigen's remarks, a couple of members of the cast defended themselves on social media, according to toofab.

"Staging starts tomorrow, hits the market Monday. I'm really a real realtor — LOL!" Stause reportedly shared on her Instagram Story last week, per the outlet.

Her co-star, Vander, added that she wasn't offended by Teigen's speculation.

"Oddly enough, I did sell a house on the same street where she and John Legend purchased a house a couple of months ago," she told E! News. "I'm definitely not offended. And I'm actually excited she watched the show again. Any publicity is good publicity."

"If she ever wants to buy in Miami I'm here to help!" Vander added.

Portraz echoed Vander's statements to the outlet. "I know a lot of agents and if you're not a luxury condo buyer, you may not know me, but I closed and sold deals for $9 million and up," she said. "So, certainly I'm not offended by anything that she said."

Seasons 1-3 of Selling Sunset are currently streaming on Netflix.
