Selling Sunset's spin-off series, Selling the OC, is now available for viewers to binge on Netflix. Filled with top realtors, the show also includes a lot of drama. Apart from featuring famed realtors from Orange County, the series also features some of their parents who work in the same field.
Like Tyler Stanaland, whose dad, John Stanaland, is a famous tycoon in the real estate industry, Gio Helou's mother Lisa is also a big name in the business. Not only that, she also has her very own desk in the office. This proves that the apple doesn't fall far away from the tree in Gio's case. His passion for selling was evidently inspired by his mother.
So who is Lisa Helou? Although she isn't a part of the main cast, she does appear quite a bit on the show.
