It’s Been Two Years, And Davina From ‘Selling Sunset’ Still Hasn’t Sold That $75 Million House
Why pay for therapy when you can just check the Oppenheim website and see the $75 million house still for sale?
It’s almost been a full year since we last saw the Oppenheim brokers living their best glamorous lives and slinging luxurious megamansions on Selling Sunset.
Sadly, while a fourth season of the smash reality show was confirmed by Netflix, we still don’t know when the girls of Oppenheim will return to our screens. But when we last left the Selling Sunset cast, there was a whole lot happening — and so much more has happened since.
During Season 3, we saw that Chrishell Stause and her husband divorced, Christine Quinn got the very expensive wedding of her dreams, and that Maya Vander fell pregnant once again. And in the time since the last season, Christine and her hubby have had a baby of their own, Heather Rae Young got engaged and is now on her way to being an “official” step mum to Tarek El Moussa’s kids, and Chrishell jumped back onto the dating scene after processing her divorce.
But I’m happy to report that one thing hasn’t changed, and likely won’t ever change, and that’s the glorious news that Davina Potratz still hasn’t sold her $75 million mansion as the listing is still available on the Oppenheim site.
The year is 2030, the pandemic is a distant memory, cars are flying, apps are installed directly into our brains and Davina has still not sold that $75 million house

As fans of the show know, a major plot point throughout Selling Sunset was Davina’s desperate plea for the Oppenheim Group to take on an unbelievably overpriced property.
When Jason Oppenheim originally shut down the concept in fear that the inability to sell the property would reflect badly on the brokerage and frankly be “embarrassing”, Davina chucked a hissy fit and stormed out of his brother’s housewarming party.
But after threatening to leave the brokerage and start her own business with her “broker’s license”, the Oppenheim brothers eventually caved and let Davina take on the $75 million mansion, which has proven to be a huge mistake.
Despite being given a three-month pocket listing timeframe to sell by Adnan Sen — the weirdly secretive luxury real estate developer who built the $75 million home — Davina has still failed to move 1021 North Beverly Drive in the last two years.
Perhaps it’s been Adnan’s evasiveness and refusal to just reveal that he only paid $5.85 million for the land, or maybe it’s the fact that $75 million is just far too overpriced for what the mansion is, but Davina’s continued failure to sell the property is bringing joy to Selling Sunset fans.
Even though her sales performance on Selling Sunset was mediocre at best, Davina was actually reported to be one of Oppenheim’s most successful agents with a decade of experience and sales “in excess of over half a billion dollars”.
However, if you now search for Davina on the Oppenheim website, she no longer exists. This is likely because Davina moved on from the Oppenheim Group at the end of last year, and now actually works at rival brokerage, Douglas Elliman.
Davina told PEOPLE that she was joining Douglas Elliman’s “very sophisticated and global new development division” and that the move was a “great opportunity [and] purely a business decision”.
And for those worried that we might not ever see Davina again, Oppenheim lead Jason shared that Davina — and Brett, who also left the brokerage to start his own business — will likely still be featured in Season 4 as no bad blood exists between them.
“Davina has always been a tremendous asset and a valued agent at the Oppenheim Group, and she is also a friend whose career decisions I very much respect and support,” Jason told PEOPLE. “I will always want the best for Davina, and I hope that we continue to work together in the future.”
But with all this shifting around of staff, there has been no update on the only thing that truly matters: The future of Adnan’s $75 million property.
Strangely, despite Oppenheim Group never actually wanting the $75 million property and Davina so desperate to be the agent representing it, it does not appear that she took Adnan’s listing with her to Douglas Elliman as it remains on the Oppenheim site.
I know it may be shocking to hear, but maybe, just maybe, Davina finally realised that she was wrong for once and decided to cut her losses when she moved over to her new employer. Or maybe Adnan was fed up with Davina not delivering on her promises and finally removed her as his agent.
Either way, the delightful fact remains: Davina still hasn’t sold her $75 million property and I don’t see that changing any time soon.
