The Hardest Working Man in the Room Million Dollar Listing New York's Ryan Serhant opens up about his rise to the top Words by Vanessa Pascale Photo credit: Alex Abaunza Iam waiting for Ryan Serhant in his real estate office's conference room. The small room boasts a conference table as well as a console table and two bookshelves brimming with a mélange of books, framed photos and editorials, real estate awards, and memorabilia, like an autographed poster of The Wolf of Wall Street, Ryan bobbleheads, and mugs with the catchphrase: "Expansion. Always, in all Ways." Beyond the glass walls, I spy several stacks of Ryan's book, Sell It Like Serhant: How to Sell More, Earn More, and Become the Ultimate Sales Machine and his credo framed: The Serhant Team Way: We Take Initiative. We are Relentless. We have Empathy. We Respect. After a few minutes, the former soap actor/hand model-turned-reality star/real estate agent extraordinaire walks in, pulls up a chair, and gets comfortable. The 6'3" realtor scrunches up his legs and rests his loafers on the edge of the seat between us —a bold move considering he is wearing fitted suit pants (bright blue) paired with a crisp white button-up, and a light pink tie. Ryan just returned to New York City from Greece, where he celebrated his birthday, his wife Emilia's birthday, the 4th of July, his wedding anniversary, and had his daughter, Zena, baptized. "Efficient with time," Ryan says with a smile. Though admittedly slightly jet lagged, he doesn't look it.
