Why did Vanessa leave 'Selling Sunset'? Where is she working now?

Vanessa is noticeably absent from Season 6 of Selling Sunset, but why? She actually left the Oppenheimer Group for a rival agency, according to a report from People Magazine.

However, Vanessa herself insisted that there were no hard feelings between her and her fellow Selling Sunset co-stars. She explained, "I always felt like I was the new girl in school. They're obviously super successful and it's an incredible show, but I have to make my own life and make my dreams come true."

She kept it real regarding the status of her relationship with her Selling Sunset co-stars, telling People Magazine, "Obviously you get along really well with some and don't click as well with others, and that's the show."

Vanessa says she stays in touch with Maya Vander and Christine Quinn the most.

What is Vanessa's net worth?

According to Celebrity Net Worth, Vanessa has an estimated net worth of around $5 million. That stems from her earnings as an actor, singer, and of course, realty TV star and real estate agent.

Referring back to the People Magazine report about Vanessa's move to a new real estate agency, apparently she has already secured a huge listing! Vanessa works as a real estate agent for The Agency.

Vanessa showed off her latest $25 million dollar listing (that she's co-listing with fellow Agency agent Santiago Arana) on her Instagram (you can follow her @vannevillela). It's a beautiful property in Beverly Hills that's guaranteed to bank Vanessa a strong commission the moment it sells.

In other words, Vanessa may have left Selling Sunset, but her career is doing just fine!
