Over here at CandysDirt.com, we are no strangers to The Oppenheim Group. They’ve been on our radar for some time now for their dynamic and fearless approach to real estate. So when we heard they were getting their own show on Netflix, we went right to the source for the scoop.
Enter straight shooter, and dare we say, one of the stronger personalities on the new Netflix series Selling Sunset, Davina Potratz. The prolific top producer and a key member of The Oppenheim Group – a Los Angeles-based luxury brokerage ran by founder, Jason Oppenheim, and his twin brother, Brett Oppenheim – took a few minutes out of her busy schedule to spill the tea on what’s really happening behind the scenes.
Check out our conversation below and be sure to tune in to Netflix to catch up on all the Selling Sunset drama, streaming now.
CandysDirt.com: Why did you decide to do the show?
Davina Potratz: I decided to do the show because I wanted to expand my reach and entertain people with some of the moments we go through, especially as women. While the drama was real, we are a tight-knit family that sometimes locks horns, but what’s most interesting here is that all of us came from humble beginnings and are making it in one of the most competitive industries out there. On a bigger level, we really wanted to inspire you, that women can be sexy, powerful, and successful, but that this sometimes requires us to be bold, whether you agree with us or not. Maybe it requires a fierce stomach but that’s how the world works and none of us are quitters. We are passionate independent women.
CD: Any favorite moments to watch for?
DP: I think that the $40 million dollar house and the competition around that is fun to see. I also like bonding moments such as the team dinner or when you see that things don’t always go as planned, such as Heather’s staging scene or Maya’s client hitting on her. Overall, this is a group of women who try to balance their personal lives while working in high stakes real estate.
CD: How will the show help or improve your business?
DP: The show has only been out for about a week but so far, it has changed our business a little because now people feel like they know us before they have even met us. Overall, we’ve had a great and very passionate response.
CD: Any Los Angeles real estate news to share?
DP: Interest rates are currently at record lows and the LA market is stable and consistent making it a fantastic time for anyone looking to sell or buy.
In addition to the show, Davina and her team are busy hustling for a number of high-profile clients, including actor Orlando Bloom. They just listed his Billionaire’s Row Beverly Hills bachelor pad for a cool $9 million. For more information on Davina Potratz and the entire Selling Sunset crew, click here.
