So, Alex Trebek. While his game might be on with various game shows, at home, he's just a modest father. He does everything in the house that he can. If there's something that needs to be fixed, he is on it. If he can fix the problem, there's no way he would let anyone do it for him.
That's how he is for his biological daughter, Emily Trebek. And he's been somewhat of an inspiration for her own journey of flipping houses. That is how Emily collects her net worth.
It's not only Alex and Emily who have an interest in real estate, mother, Jean Currivan Trebek, was also into real estate before marrying Alex. So, you could say the profession is in the blood.
Emily Trebek's Net Worth Amounts to $1 Million, But Her Father is Worth a Lot More
As of February 2020, Emily Trebek is worth around $1 million. While it's modest for a beginner in the real estate field, she's been living the dream with her work.

The father, on the other hand, is able to spend millions on his homes. With a net worth of $75 million, he's living rich. But it's not what he wants to become of his legacy. TV game shows are not much without him.
Emily graduated from Loyola Marymount University in Los Angeles in 2015 with her boyfriend. Since graduating, she followed up her dream of becoming an architect, when she was young, to flip her first house with the help of her dad.
Her Unwavering Commitment to Clients Help Realize the Property's True Potential and Market Appeal
Emily is now an agent for Compass, Los Angeles. Her bio on company's website says she brings a unique perspective to her buyers and sellers. She knows exactly what the client wants and needs, at the same time, how to fulfill the client's wish lists.

The 27-year-old is a true local expert of all areas of Los Angeles from the San Fernando Valley to the Hollywood Hills to the Westside communities like Brentwood and Santa Monica.
When it's time to sell, her attention to detail and knowledge of current trends help realize the property's true potential and market appeal in order to sell quickly and for top dollar.
The website also mentions she "enjoys looking for unique furniture pieces and honing her cooking skills."
Alex is the "World's Greatest Dad for Emily"
Alex's work ethic is the motivation Emily took to work in real estate. She's been graciously thankful for all his help to achieve her dream.
On the occasion of Father's Day 2017, she shared a touching tribute to her father, via a 'Jeopardy!' blog. She mentioned how she always used to watch him fix things and wanted to learn.
"Overall, I learned a lot from him. I love knowing how to do things on my own, but I'm nowhere near dad's level. He saved a bunch of money with his advice and guidance. He basically demo'd the whole house," the blog mentioned. "He demo'd the kitchen cabinets; he did the tile in the bathrooms. The things we clashed over were just design choices. And all of the opinions he had that we went with … I'm so happy that we did."
The real estate agent says she has more appreciation for him than anything and knows she can call upon him if there's anything wrong that needs fixing.
"I don't have words to express how much it means to me that he helped," she concluded. "Just telling him how much I appreciate it and how much I thank him for guiding me through this and helping me sounds so insignificant. I don't have the words to make it sound as significant as I feel."
If that doesn't say he's the best dad in the world, then this little fact could. The guy has not taken down the 'World's Greatest Dad' sign he's kept it on the front of his office door since 18 years ago. Why? You guessed it. It's because she made it for him 18 years ago.
I'm so proud to be his daughter. He is the most caring and supportive father and truly is the World's Greatest Dad.
It's only a few of many things Trebek did to make an impression of himself as a game show host, a loving father and a extraordinary individual.
