Is Maya Vander leaving the sale of Sunset?

At the end of season five of “Selling Sunset,” the Oppenheim Group staff threw a party for one of the show’s original stars, Maya Vander, who was planning a more permanent move from Los Angeles to Miami. The wife and mother had been bicoastal for a few years, but with the birth of her third child on the horizon, she decided it was best to move to Miami with her family. However, in December 2021, Vander revealed on Instagram that the baby was stillborn at 38 weeks. She stayed in Miami, however, and actually started a new business earlier this year. So what does this mean for her future on “Selling Sunset”?

Vander has been a part of Group O for years and is one of Jason and Brett Oppenheim’s most trusted real estate agents (she even closed a $12 million+ house at the end of this season). And while she moved to Los Angeles in the early 2000s from Israel to start a new life, her relationship with her husband eventually took her to Miami. By then, however, Vander had built her career and apparently didn’t want to leave it behind. When Netflix started filming “Selling Sunset,” she and her husband had just moved to Miami, she told the New York Post in January. Vander ended up traveling back and forth between Los Angeles and Miami to film and maintain his business in California.

Now that she’s in Miami on a more permanent basis, she’s started her own luxury real estate business, The Maya Vander Group. “My business in Miami is doing really well. I’ve created my own team here. I have a few girls working with me. And the market in Miami is great,” Vander told the Post.

However, Vander still has business in Los Angeles and still appears to be employed by the Oppenheim Group. She is still listed as an agent on The O Group’s website, and a source previously told Us Weekly that Vander continues to work closely with the brokerage. “She’s still with the Oppenheim Group and doing business in LA and Florida,” the source said. “Actually, she’s still working with Jason [Oppenheim] even though she’s in Florida because she has clients there.”

However, Vander’s appearances on “Selling Sunset” may be rare starting next season. She said on “The Domenick Nati Show” in December that she probably wouldn’t return full-time. “I probably won’t be a full-time cast member because it’s going to be logistically difficult for me to go back and forth again,” Vander said, noting that she wanted to be there for her kids. So while she still takes care of some clients in California, cameos might be all we get from Vander going forward.
