Summary

Selling the OC is the perfect kind of trash reality show that makes the world go round.

This review of the Netflix reality series Selling the OC season 1 does not contain spoilers.

We have a spin-off of the series Selling Sunset dropping on Netflix in Selling the OC. Is the series worth a binge? Let’s dive in.

Twin brothers Jason and Brett Oppenheim open a brand new real estate office in Orange County, California. The series follows 11 real estate agents in the area that are fighting, clawing their way into selling these MASSIVE homes to their clients.

Right off the bat, we set the tone of the stakes in this area. We are introduced to this MASSIVE house in Laguna Beach that will result in an agent commission of over $3 MILLION. Folks, I need to become a real estate agent because that is ABSURD. The agents at the house are discussing the life-altering money they could receive if they sell this house. You can tell this is about to start a battle between these folks, and I am here for it.

The entire series felt like everyone was built up to hate Gio, but honestly, he was my favorite part of the show. Sure the guy can come off as a jerk, but I couldn’t knock the man’s hustle to want to be the best real estate agent. Another thing I liked about him was how conviving he was. He was always playing all the sides and was one to start something and kind of step back and watch the situation blow up.

The culmination of the series sees the group reach over $100 MILLION in sales, and the Oppenheim brothers treated the agents to a yacht party. But unfortunately, while we are supposed to celebrate, these folks couldn’t resist being wrapped up in so much drama. The Alexandra duo pissed everyone off, and I truly want to see some of these ladies come to blows because they were heated. However, the Alexandra duo got the last laugh because when everyone returned, they had sold a $20 million house that got them over 600 thousand in commission. So when I say this was my favorite moment, IT WAS. I need a season two, NOW.

Look, if you know me, I love trashy reality TV, and Selling the OC is 100% that. It is dramatic, wild, and has some fun personalities that you love or hate easily. I think what makes this stand out is the luxurious houses that will leave you picking your jaw off the ground. When you mix that in with these people trying to sell these houses to keep up this lavish lifestyle they live, it’s some downright entertaining TV.

Overall, if you are a fan of Selling Sunset, you will be 100% equally invested in each of these characters and the show. But, dare I say I enjoyed Selling the OC more than Selling Sunset? I believe this one had slightly more drama and hooked me even further.
