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 subject. However Emma additionally raised eyebrows when she took a number of of her co-workers to Cabo, Mexico, on what gave the impression 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 price, precisely? Right here’s the deal.
Emma grew up outdoors of Boston.
The truth TV character was born and raised within the small seaside city of Scituate, Massachusetts, which is close to Boston. “It was probably the greatest locations to develop up,” she beforehand instructed Ladies’s Well being. “All of my neighbors had been my greatest mates.” She now lives in LA, however her household continues to be again East, so she usually goes forwards and backwards to see them and cope with 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 slightly misleading about how a lot cash The Oppenheim Group brokers really take house. 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 reduce of that.
Jason Oppenheim broke all of it down throughout the season 7 finale: The brokers get a 80/20 % fee break up, which signifies that 80 % of every fee goes to the agent and 20 % goes to the O Group (i.e. their brokerage).
The fee on most house purchases is 5 %, and it’s usually break 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 should 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 quite a bit about her frozen vegan empanada line, Emma Leigh & Co. The firm web site is fairly scarce, but it surely lists a smattering of areas the place you should purchase the empanadas, together with QVC. The road is small and options mini vegan “beef” empanadas and “sausage” pizza empanadas (each value $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 concerning 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 folks on-line are suggesting that it’s really from an organization referred to as Wheels Up, which charters jets for folks and companies. Actually, there’s an entire Reddit thread dedicated to this. “It’s clearly a constitution,” one particular person wrote on the thread. “Additionally, LA to Cabo PJ constitution might be solely $10-20k a technique for therefore few ppl so the $$ shouldn’t be that absurd. I don’t assume Emma paid for it actually.”
One other chimed in with this: “You might want to have wealth of a minimum of $100 million to really personal a jet (sustaining it plus the gasoline is dear). There are small planes which can be on the cheaper finish however that’s not 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 facet 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 seemed totally different on the within than the jet featured above and the one which was most lately on the present:
Maybe Emma has modified jets over time, was photographed in a buddy’s jet, or she merely charters a PJ on occasion.
How does Emma’s web price evaluate to her Promoting Sundown co-stars?
It’s exhausting to say. Based mostly on WH‘s earlier analysis, the Oppenheim brothers are seemingly price essentially the most at about $50 million a bit. Of the brokers, Chrishell seems to take advantage of out of everybody—she’s at present price $6 million.
Emma reportedly falls beneath that. “Being within the meals trade is a big a part of my story and in addition transitioning into actual property,” she beforehand instructed Individuals. “Plenty of the ties that I comprised of that—and from being a lady CEO and a lady entrepreneur—imply I’ve met different CEOs who are actually buying properties.” She additionally lists herself as an angel investor on her Instagram bio.
