After venturing out on her own and taking time to raise her two children with husband Jeff Lazkani, she realized she was ready to return to the real estate game.
Chelsea, a graduate of the University of Birmingham and the University of Dundee in Scotland, is now taking her talents to the West Hollywood-based realty group.
“I think having the support of my husband and my family really essentially prepared me to take on this big role and this big opportunity,” the new agent told PEOPLE exclusively about joining the Netflix series. “But for me personally, I saw this as an opportunity to really open doors in an industry that has lacked diversity and where minorities are underrated.”
Teasing the new season, Chelsea promises that “it’s really electric” and “nothing you’ve ever seen before on TV.”
