In season 4, Jason and Brett Oppenheim brought Emma Hernan and Vanessa Villela on as real estate agents. But in the season 5 trailer, another realtor is vying for a desk at the esteemed brokerage. 

Chelsea Lazkani has been in real estate since 2017. According to her Zillow page, the “British Native was raised in a ‘real estate family.’” 

Her bio continues: “Chelsea specializes in all aspects of the real estate business, whether it be educating first-time buyers on lay of the land to finding the most optimum plot of land for her developer clientele. Her hard work, passion, and charisma [have] helped her reputation as a qualified realtor quickly rise.” In the past, Chelsea worked for Rodeo Realty, the agency that previously employed Million Dollar Listing Los Angeles star Josh Flagg.
