Three years after the premiere of Selling Sunset, the Selling Television Universe has grown from two shows to three. Selling the OC hit Netflix on August 24, introducing viewers to a brand-new group of Oppenheim agents (and eight new episodes of questionable workplace dynamics).
The new cast of Selling the OC realtors have come from all over the country, with a wide range of real estate experience and personalities, to make their mark on Orange County's ultra-luxury real estate market. What they do have in common is a penchant for drama (and the same first name for three of the members). Read on for what we know about the OC crew.
Hall started out with an interior design career before becoming a realtor. She told People (opens in new tab) that she originally turned down the show before Jason Oppenheim convinced her to join, and being a cast member has already led to her being involved in a $100 million listing. Outside of work, the OC native is a devoted single mom to her son.

Brett and Jason Oppenheim
Both Brett and Jason appear in Selling the OC, though Jason mostly interacts with the OC office. (It's still unclear whether Brett's still involved with the O Group, as he's no longer listed on their website (opens in new tab).)
In an interview with Today (opens in new tab), Jason spoke on his excitement for the new show. "I hope that people watch it for what it is and don’t make comparisons to other shows, including 'Selling Sunset.' These people are their own agents. They have their own lives and they’re doing their own thing. I think it should be judged on its own merits. I think it’ll do quite well."
