Jason Oppenheim believes Christine Quinn’s exit from “Selling Sunset” came at just the right time.

Chatting exclusively with Page Six at the launch of the 1060 App on Thursday in West Hollywood, the Oppenheim Group boss said that he felt fans were “tired” of seeing Quinn play the villain on the glossy Netflix docu-series. 

“I think people were tired of watching that dynamic continue season after season,” Oppenheim, 45, told us.

“So I think, if anything, it’s provided a breath of fresh air for the office and for the show.”

Since 2019’s Season 1, Quinn found herself at odds with many of her castmates and fellow luxury real estate agents — including Chrishell Stause, Mary Fitzgerald, Heather Rae Young and, quite memorably, Emma Hernan.

In Season 5, Hernan, 30, claimed Quinn bribed a client with $5,000 to quit working with the vegan empanada enthusiast. Quinn, 34, vehemently denied the accusation. 

No matter who was in the right, Oppenheim is happy to move on from any such conflict. 

“It’s not the type of drama that I enjoyed being a professional real estate broker,” he told Page Six. “I wasn’t happy with the types of issues [about Quinn] being brought to my attention. I think it ran its course.”

Quinn left the Oppenheim Group — and subsequently, “Selling Sunset” — to launch RealOpen, a crypto real estate venture, with husband Christian Dumontet in April. One month later, she released her first book, “How to Be a Boss B*tch.”

She has since starred in several high-end fashion campaigns, her most recent being for the Beyoncé-loved brand MCM’s holiday collection. 

“I never had my own personal issues with Christine other than the fact that I recognized that she had a lot of other issues with other cast members,” Oppenheim explained to us. 

“But I wish her the best and I know she is doing great things, especially in the fashion space.”

Though “Selling Sunset” Season 6 won’t have Quinn’s witty confessionals or killer onscreen style, Oppenheim is confident that the show’s forthcoming installment will be its “best” yet.

“I would have liked the drama to have calmed down, but it didn’t. It ramped up. It made it a little bit difficult in the office, but I think it probably makes for good TV,” he admitted with a laugh. 

“So much real estate, so much interpersonal life experiences, relationships … So, so much drama. It’s going to have everything.”

Oppenheim wouldn’t reveal who clashed during production but promised plenty of explosive encounters between his agents.

“We have new agents and new issues between the agents,” he teased. “I’m not going to tell you who’s fighting this season, but there is fighting for sure.”

Until Season 6 is streaming — Netflix has yet to announce a premiere date — Oppenheim is focused on selling homes with assistance from 1060. The new app uses short digital videos to give buyers a better idea of what they’re walking into. 

“I’ve been approached by so many different real estate apps and I’ve been very particular about putting my personal reputation and my professional reputation behind anything,” he explained.  

“But I spent about a year looking into 1060 and I’m a believer in it. I think that real estate agents are going to do more than just photos, moving forward, to sell property.”
