If you’re a fan of Selling Sunset, you know that Maya Vander and Chrishell Stause are two of the most successful real estate agents at The Oppenheim Group. Here are six takeaways that you as an HR pro can take from these two ladies:

1. No drama.

One of the most important things that Maya Vander stresses on the show is the importance of keeping things drama-free at work. She is quick to shut down any gossip or negative talk, and she always keeps her professional and personal life separate. As an HR professional, it’s important that you create a work environment that is drama-free and where employees feel comfortable coming to you with any problems or concerns.  

2. Don’t put other women down.

One of the biggest arguments on the show is between Chrishell Stause and her co-worker, Christine Quinn. The two women are constantly putting each other down and trying to one-up each other, which no HR professional should tolerate. Women should support and empower each other, not tear each other down.  

3. Be a good listener.

One of the things that Maya is known for on the show is her “motherly” instincts and her ability to listen to her clients and understand their needs. As an HR professional, it’s important that you are a good listener to be able to empathize with your employees.  

4. Keep your cool under pressure.

The real estate business is notoriously high-pressure, and the agents of Selling Sunset are constantly dealing with demanding clients and difficult situations. They always manage to keep their cool and maintain their composure throughout it all. As an HR professional, you need to be able to do the same.  

5. Have fun.

While Selling Sunset is definitely a drama-filled show, it’s also clear that the agents are having a lot of fun. They enjoy working together, and they seem to like each other, despite all the fighting. It’s important to remember that work should be enjoyable, and as an HR professional, you should create an environment that is fun and engaging for your employees.  

6. Be flexible.

The real estate market is always changing, and Maya and Chrishell are always willing to adapt. They are flexible in their approach, always looking for new ways to do things. In HR, you need to be just as flexible. The world of HR is constantly changing, and you need to be able to adapt to new situations.  


Maya and Chrishell are two successful women who have a lot to teach HR professionals. They both work hard and are dedicated to their jobs, but they also have healthy personal lives. These are important lessons for you as an HR professional to take to heart.
