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."

How has Selling Sunset star Emma Herman made such a net worth?

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.
