Here’s what Selling Sunset’s Maya Vander is up to so far

“Selling Sunset” star Maya Vander is known for being the show’s voice of reason, as fans love her ability to stay out of the drama and develop a more neutral stance in the office screen rant. In episode 9 of season 5, it’s even joked that everyone in the office can agree that Vander is a likable person.

From the very first episode, fans of the series will know that Vander’s husband, David Miller, lives and works in Miami, Florida. Throughout the Netflix reality show, Vander can be seen in and out of the office as she travels back and forth between Miami and Los Angeles, most notably because she is raising two children. “My husband works from home and of course with real estate, I work from home excluding showings,” Vander told Us Weekly. “But I spend a lot of time with my family. We are full-time parents.”

Throughout the show, Vander sometimes teases that she could get her real estate license in Miami to make her life easier, and fans have wondered if the agent would leave the Oppenheim Group, and with it the show, to work full-time in Miami.

Maya Vander is “so grateful” for her time on Selling Sunset

The ninth episode of the fifth season of “Selling Sunset” appeared to be the icing on the cake and make Maya Vander’s departure from the show official. The cast had brunch to celebrate the agent’s success with the Oppenheim Group, finalize one last deal and wish her the best in her future projects. After all, it was Vander who dreamed of creating the hit reality TV show (via Netflix Tudum).

After all those years of traveling and thinking back and forth between two cities, Vander confirmed rumors on Instagram that she wouldn’t be returning for the show’s sixth season. After a devastating miscarriage and her husband now working full-time in Miami, Vander said she wanted to focus on her family.

“I’m very proud of my Selling Sunset family for getting two more seasons and hopefully an Emmy nomination,” Vander said in an Instagram Story, as reported by Today. “I’ve made the decision not to continue the show and it wasn’t an easy decision! To be a part of such a successful hit is absolutely amazing and I’m so thankful for it!!” Clearly there are no hard feelings towards the show, instead she made the best decision for herself.

Maya Vander isn’t ruling out a return to Selling Sunset

Maya Vander seems excited to already be working on projects after announcing her departure from Selling Sunset. The real estate agent shared on Instagram that she is starting a new real estate company called Maya Vander Group based in the city. She also started her own real estate course with helpful tips to become a successful real estate agent.

Though she may be done with the show full-time, Vander has indicated that she wants to meet up with the women in the cast whenever she can, and she’d be on board to do a cameo every now and then in the recently renewed seasons doing 6 and 7. Her profile is still active on the Oppenheim Group website, so it’s likely she’s still interested in selling homes in Los Angeles.

“If they said to me, ‘Yeah, come out once a month,’ I’d say, ‘Sign me,'” Vander told Netflix Tudum in April. “It’s a great opportunity. Even though I always complain to the producers about me flying back and forth, I made it happen because I wanted to be a part of it.”
