Ryan Serhant Income
Though he is best known today as a reality television personality for his appearance in Bravo TV’s show Million Dollar Listing New York, Ryan Serhant’s income comes majorly through his real estate business. But his acting and part-time modeling work have also contributed significant sums to his total earnings. Serhant has also earned money in his numerous appearances as a real estate expert. Ryan Serhant’s total wealth is estimated to be $20 million as of today.
Ryan Serhant began dating Emilia Becharakis, a Greek lawyer and top real estate agent in her country in 2011. He proposed to her in Times Square New York and they got engaged in 2014. On July 7th, 2016, the couple wedded. Ryan is a converted Greek Orthodox Christian.
Ryan Serhant might have a really busy schedule but he creates time for his physical well-being. By that we mean he goes to the gym at 4:50 am daily for an intense workout. He uses Dogpound gym located in New York which also attends to high-profile clients like Victoria’s Secret models, actors and business moguls. The TV personality said he used to workout at night when he was much younger and thought those who woke up early for workouts were over-stressing themselves. However, now that he is older, he doesn’t think he would rather have it any other way.
Another interesting fact about Ryan is that the TV cast was motivated into working harder than he was because of a sad experience he had at a grocery store. According to him, his credit card was once declined at a grocery store after buying a week’s worth of food. Unfortunately, he couldn’t afford to pay cash or use other cards so he sheepishly left despite a line of people behind him starring. After the big embarrassment that made him cry like a baby, he made up his mind to change his future.
Again, before his breakthrough, Ryan used to be very self-conscious and shy. He was overweight and couldn’t look people in the eye because he thought he didn’t have what it took to be confident. He also avoided friends so he wouldn’t have to spend money he didn’t have. Apparently, all that has changed now since we know him as a bold person.
