Selling Sunset is currently one of the top real estate reality TV shows on Netflix. Despite the amazing properties on display, that’s a small part of its success. Among all the cast members, Christine Quinn stands out and is involved in a majority of the drama, fighting against her co-stars. As of 2023, Christine Quinn has an estimated net worth of $2 million.
Christine was born in Dallas, Texas on October 14, 1988. Her mother’s name is Barbara Dragony, but her father’s identity remains unknown. Quinn doesn’t share much about her early life.
However, it is known that she was a student at the world leader in performing arts education, The Juilliard School. Christine then pursued higher education at California State University, Los Angeles.
There, she earned a degree in Broadcast Journalism. Before joining the real estate industry and discovering fame on Netflix, she worked as a model and actress under the stage name Christine Bently.
Quinn first worked as a model and had signed contracts with agencies including Vogue and Maxim. Not long after, the aspiring performer decided to venture into acting.
She became a member of the Screen Actors Guild and got a number of small roles. Quinn has appeared in over 20 films and television shows. She also got to be a voice actor for a video game character.
Her movie projects include Humans vs Zombies, Shark Night 3D, and Hot Tub Time Machine 2. As for her television roles, she appeared in Ballers, NCIS: Los Angeles, and Drop Dead Diva.
Real Estate Career
After multiple acting gigs, Christine Quinn traveled the world. While doing so, she discovered her love for architecture and real estate. Due to her newfound interest, she joined The Oppenheim Group. The firm is a leading real estate brokerage in West Hollywood and it’s thriving off the publicity from Netflix.
Thanks to her acting experience, Quinn had no problem transitioning into reality TV. Unlike other agents such as Davina Potratz, she’s comfortable being on camera. However, fans consider her the villain of the show and she quit the Oppenheim Group in the last season.
After leaving, she co-founded a new crypto real estate firm called RealOpen with her husband Christian Richard. RealOpen makes it easier and more efficient for people to purchase real estate with crypto. In total, the startup now has nine employees. Crypto is a bear market at the moment so they may have started the venture at the wrong time.
Net Worth and Earnings
Before resigning, Christine earned a lot of money as a real estate broker in LA. Although it’s a tough industry, she earned a significant amount of money in commissions selling high-end properties.
It is reported she made $1,082,400 in commissions, selling $37,080,000 worth of properties in the first three seasons of Selling Sunset. However, it isn’t known how much she gets paid per episode. Currently, Quinn has an estimated net worth of $2 million.
Christine Quinn is married to Christian Richard. Richard is a savvy tech entrepreneur who made his fortune selling his online meal delivery company Foodler GrubHub for $94 million in 2017. Christine loves the finer things in life and Christian is happy to open up his wallet to keep her happy. He paid $175,000 for her engagement ring as they tied the knot in 2019. They had their first child, Christian, in 2021 and the family now resides in a Hollywood Hills mansion.
