Looks like it's getting crowded in The Oppenheim Group office. Nicole Young, who already works at the LA realty group, has joined the cast of Selling Sunset season 6, one of our favorite TV shows about gossip... and, you know, the bustling California housing market. (But mostly the gossip and drama.) 

Although this Oppenheim employee has been with the company for eight years already and was even invited to make an appearance on the debut season of Selling Sunset, she's finally ready to take the plunge. And according to the realtor, she's bringing plenty of experience along for the ride. 

"I am definitely going to be bringing a lot of real estate to the table, which I’m very excited about, not just the properties, but my clients and the relationships I have with them. Because at the end of the day, relationships are the most important aspect of real estate," she told US Weekly

As for the drama? She isn't fazed—she's counting on her thick skin to help her through any challenges that come her way. Good luck, Nicole! Here's everything we know about Selling Sunset's latest addition...

Who is Nicole Young, 'Selling Sunset' newbie?

The newest reality TV star—who is perhaps on the fast track to becoming one of the richest Selling Sunset cast members—is known for her friendship with the Oppenheim brothers and even dated one of them (of course it was Jason... and we have the full list of Jason's girlfriends). She also considers Mary Fitzgerald to be one of her closest allies and even officiated her wedding with Romain Bonnet, which racks in major BFF points!

As far as her personal life goes, Young is a dog mom and has a husband, Brandon, whom she married in 2017, according to US Weekly. (No two-legged children right now!). 

When she's not busy cutting deals with wealthy clients, Young is most likely playing beach volleyball or gardening. 

If her Instagram account is anything to go by (@itsnicoleyoung), she's also fairly fanatical about skincare and makeup, travel, and working out.

In the last few months, she's also posted a ton of snaps with the Selling Sunset crew, including pics from open houses, cast dinners, office hangs, and photos taken during filming.

It seems like Nicole has in fact turned to Mary for some advice on her new role on the show recently. She told PEOPLE magazine: "I've talked to Mary about everything under the sun and asked her a million questions.

"She kept reiterating, 'Just be yourself. Don't try to be anything you're not. Don't try to be anything that you think people want you to be or say what they want you to say. Just be you.'" Solid advice!

We're not sure if she actually heard Mary's advice considering Nicole's fight with Chrishell, where she started bringing up unresolved feelings over a listing from three years ago. Chrishell accused her of turning a non-issue into drama to get camera time and things really turned sour between the two... Let's hope for a smoother ride for Nicole in season 7!
