About Chelsea Lazkani
Chelsea Lazkani is a British-Nigerian, wife, mother, and luxury realtor. As a real estate agent in one of the most competitive markets in the world, Lazkani is breathing new life into an industry not typically dominated by black women.
Inspired by her parents, both highly accomplished in their respective fields. Her mother, Elizabeth Adefioye, boundary-breaking career as Chief People Officer at Emerson, provided Lazkani with both the inspiration for what could be possible for her own life but also afforded her the opportunity to travel and see the world, solidifying her love for design, culture, and people. She grew up enamored by real estate, heavily influenced by her father, Segun Adefioye, who is an accomplished Architect and Property Developer.
With an impressive academic background, graduating with a BA in Economics from University of Buckingham and a Masters in Oil and Gas Economics from Scotland’s University of Dundee, Lazkani decided to bring her focus, tenacity, and analytical prowess to the Los Angeles real estate market. In her first year, she successfully oversaw more than $10 million in sales, leading her to make her own first home purchase in Manhattan Beach, CA. Now with over five years in the industry, Lazkani is making a name for herself as a premiere luxury realtor at The Oppenheim Group.
Chelsea is a big believer in the power of positive mindset, crediting her drive, determination, and resilience to challenging periods of her life that she’s been able to overcome and grow stronger from, leading her to become the woman that she is today. Chelsea is married to her husband, Jeff Lazkani, and is mother to two adorable toddlers, Maddox and Melia.
