Ryan Serhant will help struggling salespeople become sales superstars in his new series Sell It Like Serhant premiering Wednesday, April 11 at 10/9c. However, there are some familiar faces on whom Ryan would also like to impart some wisdom.
Since so many of The Real Housewives are entrepreneurs in their own right, we asked Ryan which Housewife he thinks could benefit the most from his business expertise when The Daily Dish caught up with him ahead of the Sell It Like Serhant premiere. "All of them," he said. "I think every Housewife should hire me, and I will come and talk to them about how to sell. Yeah, that should be my new business. Screw real estate; I will help Housewives to sell."
As far as which Housewife has already got this business thing all figured out, Ryan had to give it up to his fellow New Yorker. "One of the best Housewives who's become a real entrepreneur probably is Bethenny [Frankel]. She's done incredibly well. She's done a lot. She just did a show with Fredrik [Eklund], she did a talk show, she sold a company, she's got a lot of different things going on," Ryan told The Daily Dish. "And I think that's pretty inspirational, that you can start with one platform and you can turn it into 12."
Ryan said that he's also hoping viewers will take away some lessons in business and even in life from Sell It Like Serhant. "You'll learn something from every episode, I hope, in terms of how to sell," he said. "I'm not fixing businesses; I'm fixing salespeople individually and working with them on their personal lives. So it really became a sales show that morphed into a transformation show, like a makeover show for people's lives who need to sell more than they're selling or they will lose their job. So the stakes are incredibly high, higher than in Million Dollar Listing, and the pressure was on very personally."
See how Ryan and his students handle that pressure on Sell It Like Serhant Wednesdays at 10/9c. Get your first look at the series premiere, below.
