The 59-year-old Marek can pretty much take care of himself even without the hit TLC reality series. It's a given that he receives compensation for his appearances on LPBW, but Chris Marek earns a decent keep on his own.

Marek is a real estate agent known to sell properties for $265,000 on average. That's a pretty impressive figure. Chris owns Keller Williams Real Estate though he's also involved with Knipe Realty. He's been part of the real estate brokerage firm since March of 2010.

Chris has 23 years of experience in the field and has a five-star rating on the online real estate marketplace Zillow. According to his Zillow profile, Chris sold an Aloha, Oregon property back in October for $335,000. The graduate of Portland State University is also an avid photographer and motorcycle lover.

LPBW: How Amy Met Chris

Amy and her ex-husband Matt Roloff were divorced in 2015 after 27 years of marriage. The LPBW matriarch got back into the dating scene after a year, and that's when she first met her current husband.

The couple met and interacted in 2017 at a blind dating event. However, they were both at a singles' wine and painting night at Vine Gogh Artist Bar & Studio prior to that fateful night. 

The two got to talk about Chris' love for motorcycles, which piqued Amy's interest. In fact, one of Chris and Amy's first dates was a motorcycle ride. Since then, the LPBW couple made it a point to go on long-distance rides every now and then.
