Rick Lagina is the older brother, who is an ex American postal serviceman that became a reality TV producer and personality. Along with his brother Marty, and some other family members he started working on their quest to find the long-lost treasure of Oak Island. At the same time, they turned it into a reality show that is widely popular throughout the world.
When he was only eleven years old, he found a story about the lost treasure of the Island, which trigger further research and, in the last couple of years, really intensive search for the treasure itself. He is a really private person that doesn’t reveal too much about his private life. It is known that he is married to M. Olivia Lagina and that they have two children, daughter Maddie, and son Alex.
As of February 2023, his net worth is estimated at $3 million. We can say that all of his wealth was accumulated through the reality shows where he stars and which he produces.
Marty Lagina is a younger part of the duo. He was the person who financed the hunt for the treasure of the oak island in the beginning, before it became a reality tv show. Also, he still funds a big chunk of the search from his pocket. Before they started their treasure hunt, Marty Lagina, his brother Rick, Alan Kostrzewa, Dan Blankenship, and Craig Tester created Oak Island Tours Incorporated. These business partners own 78% of the whole island, which was more than enough for them to start the search.
We can say that the reality show is not the only way he makes his money. He owns a winery and a wind turbine company. Even though he is mainly focused on their project on Oak Island, he is also dedicated to creating new tactics and strategies to grow his winery. Furthermore, he has a serious background in developing green energy. He owned an energy company “Terra Energy”, which he sold $58 million. He invested this money in creating a wind turbine “Heritage Sustainable”. This company is the largest company of its kind in Michigan and one of the biggest ones in the Mid-West United States.
Marty Lagina was a wealthy man even before he became the reality tv show producer and star. There are several reports that talk about his net worth, but they are pretty conflicting. According to one, his estimated net worth is $40 million. At the same time, there are reports that say his net worth is close to $100 million.
