Ryan Serhant

Ryan explains why he made a music video and commends Luis' plan -- even if all of Keller Williams can't sell an apartment.

Go Big.

What did you think of this week's wild episode of Million Dollar Listing New York?
I love how we get to see the three of us get creative when selling: Luis calls on his entire firm and gives up his commission! I make a music video! Fredrik...has an open house!

Jokes aside, what I saw in this week's episode is innovation. This business was here before me and will stand after me. Getting other's excited in this line of work is critical. That includes everyone: buyers, sellers, other brokers and even yourself. This is the kind of energy and effort that I applaud in Luis. I would never have thought to bring my entire company into selling one listing to gain a building. In this crazy world of ours, we have to try and make things work as best as possible with what we have. I sincerely applaud his brave attempt at something really big. That being said; it's too bad the entire company of Keller Williams couldn't sell one apartment. . .

What was the name of the music group that shot the video in the apartment?

Hey, Ryan......If I had the bucks, I would buy the apt. just because of the great video.  Hope to connect with Mary C and her music.  Never heard of her before your video.  What a great group.  Thanks for bringing her to the  masses!

Ryan, what were you thinking? The guy did not want people using the crapper, bringing in dirt from the streets of NY or potential robbers seeing the layout of his home....a home is a persons sanctuary....and if he said NO open house...and he made it very clear....he meant he wanted no one there....I can't blame him....open houses are really for lurkers and looky loo nosy neighbors....just watch some people who come to them....its like what happens in a model home of a new subdivision....with the lone realtor downstairs, parents will bring their kids in to poo in the toilet and the little monsters do not flush....On Purpose!! There has to be statistics out there...but in suburbia...very few open houses result in finding a buyer...a band? A video? Try a photo gallery, simple video of the rooms and respect the seller....there are people who cannot fathom strangers sitting on their toilet, touching kitchen and bathroom surfaces and bringing germs on their shoes into their living space...none of the band members wore shoe covers...did you hire a cleaning crew afterwards? Had that been me...I would have hired a street person to crap on your doorstep....seriously Ryan.....I would do that....one disrespectful turn deserves another...

Really enjoy you and Fredrik on the show and reserving judgment on Luis until season plays out.  Love the National Geographic aspect of your experiences so far too:   the snake, that small kangaroo (forgot what they're called), and now your little lucky Chinese piglet.   Also congrats on your short docudrama "Withdrawal," your mini play "Out of Left Field," and the video doc on that incredible artist and your hand modeling for major tech gigs.   Very interesting, and it's impressive you've not bragged about still acting in indie projects while making major $$$$ in Manhattan real estate!

You are the best part of watching this show.  You have confidence coming out of your pores and filling up your shoes.  Most attractive is your sense of humor.

Ryan, you really should stop belittling Luis and Fredrik and ridiculing the way they dress or Fredrik's sexuality. It makes you look like more of a pig than your actual pig. Your xenophobic comments are unacceptable. Friendly competition is one thing, but picking on the other realtors this way just betrays your own insecurity. You're the only one who does this, and it makes you look a bit pathetic. Instead of making fun of the way they speak, you should be admiring them for doing everything you do -- and in a second language. (And, in the case of Fredrik, doing everything you do in a second language, and doing it BETTER than you.)

I think you are HILARIOUS!! I love your comments, sarcasm an especially the way you deal with your clients.  I am in sales (apartments) and can learn a thing or two from your techniques.  Really enjoy the show!!

I don't know about you, serpant, but that was a nice touch with the bacon!

It was great to see you with the pretty little pig. It was funny  and cute to see you eating bacon in front of your pig.  LOL

I loved you in this episode! The part where you ate bacon behind the pig was a gasping moment, but other than that I thought it was cute that you kept her and took care of her. I thought the music video was a creative idea, and what better way to quickly show off an amazing apartment right? So, I thought that part was cool. Lol at the little backhand compliment you gave Luis, he did have a good idea, but it was very damaging to his company's rep.

Ryan, I have to say I enjoy your sections of the show most. At first it was because you look just like a hot ex of mine, but then I began to really get a kick out of watching you attempt to navigate the world. I get the sense that you're in on the joke -- if people are going to see you as the arrogant pretty-boy douchebag, then you will be THE arrogant pretty-boy douchebag! I hope I'm right, but if not... well, you're still pretty damn hot. As I'm sure you know.

Please don't ever mention your dimple(s) again.   It is unseemly.  How many times do we have to hear about your good looks?  It makes you appear desperate.

I love this show! Being a New York dweller, it's very interesting to watch. And  I love your personality, Ryan. You're easy on the eyes, too. You guys can get really cutthroat, though. Never been a big fan of realtors (having bought a couple of properties, myself. Nothing on the level you're working). Their only goal in life is to make that sale. A lot of tunnel vision going on. Some might call that 'focused'. That being said, I'm a fan of yours. I tried watching Million Dollar Listings Los Angeles, and I just couldn't even get through it for some reason. They just didn't seem as polished as you New York guys. I have to ask, though, what did you think making that video would accomplish, other than making you look sweet and handsome? Was it supposed to help sell the property? You jeopardized a client for......? I'm not sure.

Ryan......Really? Making a music video in your Client's home? What you call innovative, I call trespassing, vandalism, and total disrespect for your CLIENT!!! It is innovation like this that causes public opinion of Realtors to continue to rank below used car salesmen. In Texas, you would have been fined, suspended, or worse, had your license revoked. Regroup man!!! Ridiculous!!

Luis's idea was bold. Maybe it would of gone better if he didn't drop F-bombs during it. I can't wait to see what you have planned next. James Cameron and Ryan Serhant present The Tribecca Listing? Avatar blue guys and all. LOL!

Hi Ryan- this is hands down the best season of MDL ever. Possibly one of my favorite shows on Bravo of all time. Being from Alabama, it's so entertaining to see the NYC real estate that is up for grabs. And all three brokers bring something hilarious to the show. You especially. Keep up the good work.

@haleycarlyn Hey I'm from good ol' AL also and I love the show too ! The guys are hilarious-- my favorite line is when Ryan said---"he pulled a ME on Me ......!! " SO funny ! Ryan I want to see you find a good girl and settle down a bit. Yes you work all the time and you know you are cute and of course you flirt, but wouldn't it be so nice to have that special person to have a commitment and special bond with, spend down time with, and talk about things with...... and have someone to cuddle with when hurricanes come !!! ????
