How to Start a Career in Real Estate? ( 3 Steps ) | Ryan Serhant

It’s been a while since I’ve talked about getting into real estate. I figured I’d make a follow-up video.





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 steadily recovered, Serhant himself has quickly 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. On the 12th anniversary of his first day in the industry, Ryan launched his own real estate brokerage, SERHANT. – continuing to revolutionize the traditional brokerage model by innovating through media and content creation. Ryan’s team has been named by WSJ Real Trends as the #1 real estate team in New York for two years in a row, and the top 3 in the country, selling close to $1 billion in real estate in 2019. Ryan is consistently the youngest broker to make the Wall Street Journal’s top ten list each year.

Ryan stars in the popular Bravo series “Million Dollar Listing New York,” which just wrapped its eighth season. As star and producer, he also debuted his new Bravo show, “Sell It Like Serhant,” and published his first book, “Sell It Like Serhant”. His second book, “Big Money Energy” is set to release on January 19, 2021. His motto communicates his professional and personal philosophy, “Expansion. Always. In all ways.”


  1. Understand it’s not as easy as it looks, but have a plan, show up and do the work and the business takes care of itself.+ Adrian and the crew killing the production quality as usual. Great video and advice.

  3. Great advice I love how you give detail of what to expect once you entered the real state career I barely starting my real state school and you have given my a lot of advice in this video

  4. I heard about the Forwago and decided to give it a try. I am more than grateful for the plans which helped me to improve my physical and mental health. Definitely, I would recommend everybody to try it!

  5. Health is a gift – I hope we never take it for granted. The Forwago program was the best gift that I gave to myself ever. It really helped me to improve my health and my well-being. Would recommend it to everybody. Please take care of yourself 🙂

  6. Resilience and persistence is key when it comes to this industry. Rejection is at every corner and you have to learn to take it to the chin and keep moving forward because that's the only way you're gonna make it. Keep grinding!

  7. Really love the information in this, but more than anything love the editing, flow and charisma in your videos! Glad to have found your channel Ryan!

  8. Good video , I’ve any questions,, Does the earn are based in commission?? How is rate or percent that Do I win for each sell ?? Once that I enroll with any company or Realtor, they give me clients portfolio ?? Or I must looking them for …?? Thanks. Appreciate your answer.

  9. This is terrible advice. I’m in REIB and I can guarantee you that most resi RE agents don’t make it. This vid should be 1 min: 1: Go to a target Uni. 2: network into PERE (Lime BX or Starwood) or REIB (GS, CITI, JPM, etc) 3: never make a mistake or you are screwed.

  10. This really helps I come from a family that never went to college or never really had a successful career living pay check to pay check I can see myself doing real a state and I promised my family one day I will move them to a bigger house get them nice cars that’s my goal.

  11. The market is growing daily with new strategies and trading opportunities. Financial empowerment is our everyday chase and Frederick has proven to be a part of this mission

  12. If a career as realtor is the goal then absolutely – but if a career in investing… then no, not really… find a local networking group, network with other investors, find someone whos legit, and ask to work for them for free… basically interning… also… watch a ton of videos
