Why did 'Selling the OC' star Alexandra Jarvis leave the Oppenheim Group?

In early April 2024, the Daily Mail reported that Alexandra Jarvis became the third agent to quit their job at the Oppenheim Group ahead of the Netflix reality show's return. For those wondering, Tyler Stanaland and Sean Palmieri also left the agency.

The outlet noted that many Selling the OC fans had already been speculating for weeks about her employment status after noticing that her profile was no longer available on the Oppenheim Group's official website's "Meet the Team" page.

During a recent interview to promote Season 3 of Selling the OC, Alexandra sat down with People and disclosed that she left the luxury real estate agency "several months ago." She also explained why she resigned from the Oppenheim Group.

"There were a lot of factors that went into my decision," she told the outlet, revealing that the "toxic culture" was a major reason she left the Oppenheim Group.

She added, "I don't really think anyone's surprised by [my departure]. I don't really know what to say about it other than I just know when it's time to leave a party."

Alexandra has since been "enjoying married life."

While her former co-stars, Tyler Stanaland and Sean Palmieri, have since started the new chapter of their careers, Alexandra told People that she's been spending more time with her husband, Sergio Ducoulombier.

"I've been enjoying married life," Alexandra said. "[I'm] just enjoying a little bit less stress, less drama, and just normal everyday life."

Alexandra and Sergio started dating in 2018 and took the next step by getting engaged on Christmas in 2020. The couple tied the knot on April 14, 2023, in an intimate ceremony at the scenic Villa del Balbianello, with breathtaking views of Italy's Lake Como.

"We wanted to have a very intimate and romantic wedding day without all the traditional expectations around us," Alexandra told People ahead of the big day. "So we decided, let's the two of us go to Italy. We've been before, and it's actually where I told him I loved him. He had already told me he loved me, but I held back for a little while."

Alexandra continued, "It's a special place for us. We wanted to get married on Lake Como because it's just magical — the greenery, the natural beauty. It's honestly just the perfect, romantic backdrop for what we had envisioned."

All three seasons of Selling the OC are now streaming on Netflix.
