Who is Selling Sunset's Chelsea Lazkani?

Chelsea Lazkani is a real estate agent from London who moved to LA six years ago. Since living Stateside, she's clearly made quite the impression in the industry and even knew Jason Oppenheim, the co-founder and boss at the Oppenheim Group, through her husband.

But when Chelsea manages to sell one of Jason's properties before she's even joined the team – he struggles to turn her and impressive credentials away.
