From Model to Real Estate Agent, Selling Sunset's Heather Rae Young Is a Woman of Many Talents
Wedding bells are ringing for Heather Rae Young and Tarek El Moussa! After one year of dating, the two recently got engaged in Catalina Island, CA. While you probably know Tarek from all of his shows on HGTV, you're likely wanting to know more about Heather, right? Well, for starters, Heather currently stars on Netflix's Selling Sunset, a show centered on a high-profile real estate brokerage run by twin brothers Brett and Jason Oppenheim called The Oppenheim Group (it also stars soap actress Chrishell Stause). On top of being a luxury realtor, Heather is also a model and an actress. As we wait for more details on Heather and Tarek's upcoming nuptials, get to know more about her career ahead.
She's a Model
Heather has been modeling since the age of 18 and is signed to MMG Models. She has been featured in campaigns for the Palms Casino Resort, DSO Eyewear, and Carrie Amber lingerie, and in February 2010, she was named Playboy's Playmate of the Month.
"Being a woman I have the right to choose what I do and will do with my body as should any woman or human should," she later wrote on Instagram. "Being a @playboy Playmate a lot of people ask me why I posed and why I did it....Because I have the right to choose & won't let anyone make me feel inferior for my choices."
She's an Actress
In addition to Selling Sunset, Heather has appeared in a handful of other projects, including The Internship, Love in the Time of Monsters, and The Malibu Tapes.
She's a Luxury Realtor
Yes, Heather really is a luxury real estate agent in real life. Just like on the show, she works for The Oppenheim Group. "Real estate felt like a good transition for me because I'd met so many people and I'm really good at building relationships and making contacts," she previously said in an interview. "A couple of my friends actually suggested it, and originally I said no. But you know what? I did it! I studied my ass off, I passed the test, and then within my first three months of doing real estate, I sold a $7.2 million house and a $1.5 million condo."
