It costs a pretty penny to be a “Selling Sunset” personality!
From sealing the deal to sell the luxurious million dollar properties the hit Netflix series showcases, to dealing with the seemingly endless cycle of inner-office drama within the Oppenheim Group, there is always a situation for these ladies to tackle, (with a perfectly fresh manicure, no less!)
Since the fifth season dropped on April 22nd, the news cycle pertaining to the women of the Oppenheim Group has been vast and furious.
Queen bee Christine Quinn warned viewers ahead of time on Twitter there would be plenty of drama around the corner for fans to dissect when she tweeted about the season’s alleged “fake storylines.”

Quinn, 33, wasn’t kidding about the drama ahead.
According to Daily Mail, Quinn took matters into her own hands and decided to leave the Oppenheim Group.
What We Know About Quinn’s Departure
News of Quinn’s departure from the Oppenheim Group arrived on the heels of Quinn’s former co-worker Emma Hernan‘s claims Quinn had allegedly tried to persuade one of Hernan’s clients to work with another brokerage by bribing them.
Quinn’s potential actions would have had serious consequences attached.
“If Emma had had the listing agreement signed already, which she was getting ready to, [Christine’s actions] would be illegal,” Fitzgerald explained.
Thanks to the situation’s timing, Quinn avoided any resulting consequences, which, Fitzgerald went on to explain, could have meant the end of Quinn’s career in real estate.
“So [Christine] would lose her license,” Fitzgerald continued.
“She would lose everything. But the listing agreement for this particular property wasn’t signed just yet, luckily. Otherwise, she would have legal issues,” she concluded.
What’s Next For The ‘Selling Sunset’ Star?

Quinn is seemingly giving the Oppenheim Group not a single additional thought.
It was her idea to leave the brokerage, according to Us Weekly.
Her datebook won’t have any new gaps for free time, however. Quinn is plenty busy with her latest project, a venture in several of her famous celebs are exploring. Quinn and her husband Christian Dumontet recently launched their own company RealOpen. RealOpen’s purpose is to help usher the use of Cryptocurrency further into the world of real estate.
Dumontet is passionate about its endeavor and the future role cryptocurrency will play within the housing market.
“People might ask why they wouldn’t just sell their crypto for cash first, and then purchase the home with cash,” he told Forbes.
Dumontet went on to stress the importance of cryptocurrency holders shouldn’t use that approach because they would “lose participation in the cryptocurrency market.”
“With RealOpen,” he continued, “they can keep their crypto throughout the entire process, which means continued participation in the market.
We provide continuous verifications of funds throughout the process so the seller knows, as the buyer places offer, that they really do have this money and they can’t play games with the transferring cash in and out. The taxable event only occurs at the moment of the closing,” Dumontet explained.
A New Chapter?
Quinn is just as invested in RealOpen as her husband.
So much so, to the point of leaving the Oppenheim Group behind in order to fully focus on her new business endeavor.
“A lot of brokerages are very wary of accepting crypto because they don’t understand the inner workings of it,” she also explained to Forbes, “so that’s why it’s very difficult for agents to do these transactions.”
Quinn’s decision has been made final to leave the Oppenheim Group. Most of her information is no longer on the company’s website, per Us Weekly.
