Masters of Ceremony
RYAN SERHANT, Star of Bravo's Two-Time Emmy-Nominated "Million Dollar Listing New York"
Ryan Serhant began his first day in the real estate business on September 15, 2008 – the same day that Lehman Brothers filed for bankruptcy in the wake of the subprime mortgage collapse. While the real estate sector has slowly recovered, Serhant himself has become one of the most successful brokers in the world, with agents under his leadership in New York City, Los Angeles, Miami and the Hamptons.
Serhant is recognized as a real estate powerhouse. His team at Nest Seekers International sold over $630 million in real estate in 2015 and was ranked the #1 sales team in New York state (2015) and the #5 sales team in the U.S. (2016) by Wall Street Journal Real Trends, with Serhant the consistently youngest team leader in the top ten. As a real estate expert he is a frequent contributor to 20/20, CNN, CNBC, The Today Show and Bloomberg TV, and is often quoted in The New York Times, Forbes, Wall Street Journal and Wall Street Journal China.
In 2014 he made his feature film debut opposite Ben Stiller in Noah Baumbach’s While We’re Young. His performance as “Hedge Fund Dave” won rave reviews at the Toronto Film Festival where it premiered.
Serhant is an active supporter of nonprofit organizations including DKMS, Operation Smile, Save the Children, Make A Wish, The Human Rights Campaign, Ronald McDonald House, Habitat for Humanity, Pink Agenda and UNICEF, among others.
After graduating Hamilton College in 2006 with twin degrees in English Literature and Theatre, Serhant headed to New York City to pursue an acting career before becoming a successful real estate broker. He currently lives in New York City with his wife Emilia.
