The Oppenheimer Group, a top Los Angeles-based real estate brokerage is featured on the new Netflix hit, ‘Selling Sunset’.

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, 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 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 on SecondShelters.com, and be sure to tune in to Netflix to catch up on all 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.
