Egypt Sherrod is known for co-hosting HGTV’s Married to Real Estate, where first-time buyers and other clients are eager to find their dream home. Her riches have seriously stacked up since the show launched…
Alongside her husband, DJ Mike Jackson, she acts like a fairy godmother. Clients who originally thought they could never afford the home they truly want are shocked by the unexpected wave of her wand (and renovation skills).
With three girls to feed at her own lavish property, where Egypt and Mike have twin bathroom sinks, many viewers wonder just how much she takes home for working in real estate.

Egypt Sherrod’s career
Egypt’s TV career launched after she graduated Temple University with a Broadcasting and Telecommunications degree. Ever the driven businesswoman, she started her own jazz radio aged 18.
This was a year before she secured a job as radio station music director – the youngest in the country at the time!
She worked so hard that she was able to buy her first home at the age of 24. Growing up with a father and uncle who were real estate brokers, she saw the industry as a way to earn retirement money and as a “fall back” to a radio career.
Any profits she made went to fees for her real estate agents, so she became a licensed agent in 2002. She later became the number one radio personality for NYC radio WBLS 107.5, where she interviewed Prince, Tyler Perry, and Oprah.
The now highly sought-after real estate agent and HGTV host soon got a call from a casting director who was exploring Egypt’s in hosting a program that would become Property Virgins... and the rest is history.
What is Egypt’s net worth?
Egypt has a whopping $6million net worth, which has mainly come from her real estate work and having her own show on HGTV. She is also known for appearing on Rock The Block as well as Married to Real Estate.
We had a look at the homes she is selling, and it’s clear that the commission she makes is worthy of a vacation trip! Her list of current properties are up for sale range from $1.3K million and go down to $400K.
Flipping Virgins and Property Virgins are also on Egypt’s long list of hosting experience, as well as writing the book Keep Calm: It’s Just Real Estate. Add to that being the CEO of Atlanta-based Egypt Sherrod Real Estate Group.
Alongside her real estate and radio work, she is often sought out as a speaker. Egypt hosted the stage at Oprah’s “The Life You Want Tour”, as well as HGTV’s White House Christmas Special, Rose Parade, and Urban Oasis Giveaways.

Mike Jackson’s fortune
Mike Jackson matches his wife’s fortune at a $6million net worth. He has accumulated most of his wealth by working as a DJ – who goes by ‘Fadelf’ – as well as a contractor, builder, model, actor, and entrepreneur.
He also appears on Married to Real Estate, and competed alongside his wife on Rock The Block Season 3. As a licensed realtor himself, Mike and Egypt share the same passions when it comes to the housing industry.
Despite the couple’s riches, their children are most important to them, and will always come before their successful careers. Their stunning Atlanta property has a marble kitchen island and a backyard entertainment space!
