However as devoted Promoting Sundown followers know, Emma is not only a luxurious realtor/actuality star. She ~additionally~ owns an organization that makes frozen plant-based empanadas, which is one thing she promoted fairly closely when she first joined the present.
This season, she’s gotten right into a struggle with Nicole Younger and supported Chrishell when she had a well being challenge. However Emma additionally raised eyebrows when she took a number of of her co-workers to Cabo, Mexico, on what seemed to be her personal jet which is…form of a bit deal. However wait—how does Emma have a personal jet? And the way a lot is her web value, precisely? Right here’s the deal.
Emma grew up outdoors of Boston.
The truth TV character was born and raised within the small seashore city of Scituate, Massachusetts, which is close to Boston. “It was among the finest locations to develop up,” she beforehand advised Girls’s Well being. “All of my neighbors had been my greatest mates.” She now lives in LA, however her household remains to be again East, so she typically goes backwards and forwards to see them and take care of her enterprise (extra on that in a sec).
She began modeling at a younger age.
Emma was a mannequin, beginning at age 14 with the Boston-based Mannequin Membership Inc., per the Boston Enterprise Journal. Throughout her modeling days, Emma labored with manufacturers like Hole and Puma.
It is unknown how a lot Emma make as an actual property agent.
Promoting Sundown is somewhat misleading about how a lot cash The Oppenheim Group brokers really take dwelling. Whereas the present lists the commissions every agent makes after they’ve offered a property, it doesn’t point out that they solely get a minimize of that.
Jason Oppenheim broke all of it down throughout the season 7 finale: The brokers get a 80/20 % fee cut up, which implies that 80 % of every fee goes to the agent and 20 % goes to the O Group (i.e. their brokerage).
The fee on most dwelling purchases is 5 %, and it’s typically cut up in half between the shopping for and promoting agent. From there, that 2.5 % is damaged down into 80 % for the agent and 20 % for the brokerage—and brokers need to pay taxes on that cash, too.
As for a way a lot Emma makes in actual property, it varies relying on how nicely she’s doing at any given time.
She’s a meals entrepreneur and owns her personal empanada firm.
Emma has talked so much about her frozen vegan empanada line, Emma Leigh & Co. The firm web site is fairly scarce, however it lists a smattering of areas the place you should buy the empanadas, together with QVC. The road is small and options mini vegan “beef” empanadas and “sausage” pizza empanadas (each price $100 for 36 items which… isn’t low cost).
Value noting: Whereas Emma makes a giant deal about beginning her personal firm, the contact e mail for her model goes to Yankee Dealer Seafood, which is a seafood processing firm that her grandfather, Gerry McAdams, based in 1994, per Boston journal. It’s nonetheless a family-owned and -operated enterprise, with frozen meals merchandise in grocery shops throughout the nation.
She owns a personal jet—possibly.
Particulars in regards to the PJ are scarce, however Emma talked about on the present when she first joined again in 2021 that she makes use of her jet to commute to the East coast for enterprise.
However whereas Emma implied that the jet is hers, loads of individuals on-line are suggesting that it’s really from an organization known as Wheels Up, which charters jets for individuals and companies. Actually, there’s a complete Reddit thread dedicated to this. “It’s clearly a constitution,” one individual wrote on the thread. “Additionally, LA to Cabo PJ constitution might be solely $10-20k a technique for thus few ppl so the $$ just isn’t that absurd. I don’t assume Emma paid for it truthfully.”
One other chimed in with this: “That you must have wealth of no less than $100 million to really personal a jet (sustaining it plus the gasoline is pricey). There are small planes which might be on the cheaper finish however that isn’t what they’re on within the present. I solely know two individuals who personal jets (G7s) and they’re each billionaires.”
Throughout Emma’s first season of filming, she shared BTS pics on Instagram from a “jet scene” for the present and, in a single shot, the phrases “Wheels” can clearly be seen on the aspect of the jet. So, there’s that.
In 2022, Emma’s empanada firm shared one other picture of her from a personal jet, and this one undoubtedly appeared totally different on the within than the jet featured above and the one which was most not too long ago on the present:
Maybe Emma has modified jets through the years, was photographed in a buddy’s jet, or she merely charters a PJ sometimes.
How does Emma’s web value evaluate to her Promoting Sundown co-stars?
It’s onerous to say. Primarily based on WH‘s earlier analysis, the Oppenheim brothers are seemingly value essentially the most at about $50 million a chunk. Of the brokers, Chrishell seems to take advantage of out of everybody—she’s presently value $6 million.
Emma reportedly falls under that. “Being within the meals business is a large a part of my story and likewise transitioning into actual property,” she beforehand advised Individuals. “A whole lot of the ties that I comprised of that—and from being a girl CEO and a girl entrepreneur—imply I’ve met different CEOs who are actually buying properties.” She additionally lists herself as an angel investor on her Instagram bio.
