Emma Hernan's net worth comes up time and time again as she continues to make a success of herself but how much does the Selling Sunset star and entrepreneur earn?
Selling Sunset has officially returned to Netflix with a sixth season and Emma Hernan is back and more dominant than ever as she full accepts her full-time role in the cast and completes her third season.
Emma, who is 31 years old, was born in Boston, Massachusetts and is not only a top estate agent, but also runs her own successful companies which have attributed to her huge earnings.
She started her career as a model, and has since gone on to establish her own frozen food company, Emma Leigh & Co.
So just how much is Emma worth? And how has she made such huge earnings? Here's everything you need to know about her net worth:
Emma is worth a reported $3million (£2.25million).
When she was a teenager, she started investing in the stock market, and has since gone on to establish a number of successful careers.
She has accumulated her fortune through her business and work on Selling Sunset.
Emma previously told People: "Being in the food industry is a huge part of my story and also transitioning into real estate. A lot of the ties that I made from that — and from being a woman CEO and a woman entrepreneur — mean I've met other CEOs who are now purchasing homes. So you'll see it unfold [on screen], but it makes a big difference, me coming on and having that entrepreneurial background, for sure."
She previously worked with Brett and Jason Oppenheim when she was looking for a home for herself in 2017, and was encouraged to get her real estate license by Jason.
Opening up about her decision to join Selling Sunset, Emma previously said: "When I signed on to do the show, I was definitely... not hesitant, but I didn’t know exactly what I was signing up for, and to be honest, it’s been very second nature to me. I’m very comfortable with the cameras around. I’m 100% myself, whether it's on camera, off camera and I think it's important to stay genuine to who you are."
While we see Emma working her magic on the LA mansion scene, her commission is only a part of her huge net worth.
She also has her own business Emma-Leigh & Co which most people think is an empanda company. However, in an interview with Forbes, Emma added: "What’s really interesting about my company that people don’t realize is people just see from the [Selling Sunset] show that it’s an empanada company, but I actually bought my own manufacturing facility.
"I have a state-of-the art facility on the east coast, so anyone that wants to manufacture an item, I co-pack for them, so there’s a whole other aspect of what I do that people don’t even realise."
Emma has also added to her personal fortune by being a clever investor which she started from a really young age.
