After a few years of working with The Oppenheim Group and co-starring on the reality TV show “Selling the OC,” Tyler Stanaland has literally returned home. 

Earlier this month, the agent and former professional surfer started work with John Stanaland Group at Douglas Elliman, owned by his father John Stanaland, a top Orange County agent. 

It’s a return engagement. Tyler Stanaland had worked with his family’s company before moving to Oppenheim Group. Tyler Stanaland said it was exciting to work with the Oppenheim Group, which was the new brokerage in town when he joined. 

“There was the opportunity of the show,” he said. “But I tested the waters and ultimately found my home is with my family.” 

His brother Trevor Stanaland, a former policeman, also works with John Stanaland Group.

Tyler Stanaland said it was easier to work with the family business, because he often co-listed homes with the firm during his time at Oppenheim Group.

During the show, celebrity journals often reported on his personal life, including his  2022 divorce from actress Brittany Snow.

While the attention from the show was good for branding, he said it has not helped him sell real estate so far. It remains an open question on whether he’ll return to reality television. 

“Never say never. At this point, I’m very happy to settle back into a quiet Orange County lifestyle,” he said.

Tyler Stanaland will focus on selling homes in South Orange County. One of the biggest deals he has worked on was the $40 million trade in 2017 for 1 Pelican Hill Road North, called Villa del Lago, in Newport Coast.

➤Alex Vichinsky has started working with The Eklund Gomes Team at Douglas Elliman after a five-year run with the Bond Street Partners at The Agency, where he served as a team lead. A Real Trends profile reported that Vichinsky made $143 million in sales during 2021. One of his high-profile roles was co-buying agent for a $20 million deal in October 2021 for 657 Perugia Way in Bel-Air.

At his new gig, Vichinsky said he will work with Eklund Gomes’ Marcy Roth to further develop the team’s Los Angeles office. He said he wanted to work at the brokerage for the opportunity to tap the team’s network of global listings and players.

➤The Alligood Group recently affiliated with Douglas Elliman after spending its first four years in business with KW Advisors.

In 2022, The Alligood Group was ranked on Real Trends for Top Medium Teams with sales of $33 million. The Beverly Hills-headquartered Alligood mostly handles homes over $5 million in markets ranging from Venice to Joshua Tree. The group partnered with Douglas Elliman to further develop its luxury business, Trey Alligood said.

Serial entrepreneur Alligood started selling real estate after helming boutique fashion labels, which were sold in outlets such as Fred Segal and department stores such as Saks Fifth Avenue. He got his real estate license at the end of 2019, and closed his first deal a few days before the pandemic shutdown in 2020.

“It was scary, but I didn’t have a Plan B, “ he said of staying in the business. “There was no option to fail.”

➤After six months at Hilton & Hyland, Pam Lumpkin has returned to Compass, where she had been affiliated from about December 2021 to March 2023, according to her profile on the California Department of Real Estate website. She previously worked with Pacific Union, which Compass acquired in 2018. 

Lumpkin said one reason why she returned is that she wanted to work with Compass’ staff support. 

“We miss Compass’ technology,” she said in a prepared statement. 

In February, Lumpkin represented the buyer in the $18 million deal for 3000 Benedict Road, located in Beverly Hills Post Office enclave. She focuses on Bel-Air, Beverly Hills, Hollywood Hills and Baldwin Hills. 

➤Jose Prats has joined AKG at Christie’s International Real Estate. He most recently worked with Acme Real Estate. 

He came to AKG to work with a larger brokerage, Prats said.  

He develops the majority of his clientele through his Instagram account, thejoseprats, which has more than 89,000 followers. 

“It’s organically grown,” Prats said. “It’s easy to tell who the junk accounts are.” 

After developing a connection through Instagram, Prats said he follows up through phone and Zoom meetings, then eventually in-person showings. Prats has sold houses throughout Los Angeles and Orange counties. He focuses on “character” homes with a Spanish or  Mediterranean style. 

➤Nourmand & Associates recently announced new agents at its Hollywood office. Brad Rehak will focus on neighborhoods such as Mid City, West Adams and Jefferson Park. Mohammed Sabah, who most recently was affiliated with Sotheby’s International Realty, will focus on Lake Balboa, Encino and Sherman Oaks. 

➤The Agency Development Group has named Jason Schlackl a managing partner. He’ll work from The Agency’s Beverly Hills headquarters. Schlackl’s responsibilities will include business development, project oversight, pre-development consulting, as well as sales and marketing.  Schlackl led the pre-construction launch of Pendry Residences West Hollywood. He most recently worked as a principal for PowerPlay Destination Properties. 

➤Michael Monempour has joined the West Los Angeles office of Lyon Stahl Investment Real Estate as its first vice president. Monempour previously worked at Kidder Mathews, where he specialized in the sale of apartment buildings in West L.A. and the San Fernando Valley. He will continue to focus on apartment buildings, he said.
