Too often, people come into a reality TV star's life searching for clout of their own and, by extension, some extra income from being on television. Luckily for Amy though, Chris's intentions seemed totally pure and his net worth and job outside the show prove that he doesn't need TLC money to get by.
That doesn't necessarily mean he isn't paid to be on the show, but it stands to reason that Chris makes plenty in his career and, because of that, he has the ability to provide well for himself and Amy when they get married.
Things between Amy and Chris didn't get off to the smoothest start on Little People, Big World, but once they realized where their relationship was headed, they became a couple that fans root for with ease. And Chris seems like the real deal for her.
So, what is Chris Marek's net worth?
Outlets like inTouch report that Chris' net worth is estimated at around $1 million.
It makes sense, given that he works in real estate in Oregon, where the estimated base salary in his general region is around $94,000. Throw in his years of experience, and the assumption that Chris is worth about $1 million isn't out of the realm of possibility.
Real estate agent
Net worth: $1 million
Chris Marek is an esteemed real estate agent with more than 20 years of experience. He is best known for being the husband of Amy Roloff, the star of TLC's long-running series, Little People, Big World.
Birth date: August 10, 1962
Relationships: Amy Roloff (m. 2021)
Chris's job outside of 'Little People, Big World' is a pretty big deal.
According to his LinkedIn profile, Chris owns a Keller Williams real estate firm. This means his base salary might be even higher than the average reported in his area. And with real estate prices skyrocketing in recent years, he likely keeps busy when he isn't appearing on TV with Amy, sharing the highs and lows of their relationship with the world.
Chris's real estate reviews on Zillow speak to how much of a success he is. He has decades of experience buying and selling homes in Oregon. Most of his reviews credit him for being an "expert" and "committed" to helping his clients buy and sell homes.
While the website doesn't list any sales beyond 2020, Chris could still be working as a real estate agent.
Amy and Chris officially tied the knot in August 2021.
On Aug. 28, 2021, Amy Roloff and Chris Marek married each other at Roloff Farms in Hillsboro, Oregon. According to People, the newlyweds tied the knot in front of over 100 of their "closest friends and family."
"What a perfect and best day. On Aug 28th, 2021, I married Chris Marek — my love, my friend, my partner, my teammate," Amy shared on Instagram. "The one I get to wake up to, start and end my day with, and love more than the day before."
She continued: "I love you Chris Marek. I’m honored to be Mrs. Marek, your wife and be on this crazy life journey together. It’s going to be amazing. My love for the rest of my life." OK, that's the sweetest thing ever!
