There are two things in life that everyone needs but no one wants to talk about – sex and money. People don’t like these topics; they find them uncomfortable. And while it might be easier to simply talk about what you watch on Netflix than to talk about personal finance, these topics are important and deserve to be addressed.

I’ve done everything from painting walls and rearranging furniture to taking out the garbage if a seller forgot. I’d do just about anything if I thought it would help sell a property. All of these things matter, but I’ve learned that there’s one extra thing you can do to make your listing stand out, create […]
Selling or buying a home is a crazy stressful process. It can be quick and painless or long and labored. It involves feeling every emotion you’ve ever had and probably a few new ones you didn’t even know existed. When you decide to buy or sell, it can be like adding something to an already […]
There’s nothing worse than investing your time and energy into a deal only to watch it all go up in flames. It’s especially frustrating when you know you could have gotten the deal closed if only someone would have been flexible, even a tiny bit. Instead both sides stayed miles apart, refusing to budge. The […]
On Sunday night I watched my favorite football team win their sixth Super Bowl game. It’s no secret that I am a huge Patriots fan. Watching a game with Emilia and our friends (and a big bag of Doritos) is easily one of my favorite ways to spend time on weekends. I even own a helmet […]
This article was originally published on Forbes, here. It’s the middle of January. Not only is it crazy cold, but it’s been a couple of weeks since most of us set big goals for the New Year. That excitement and determination we felt on New Year’s Eve about “training for a marathon!” or maybe “giving up […]
It’s been quite the year, to say the least. A lot of ups and downs. I try not to let the media, the market, and everyone’s opinions affect me, but I’d be lying if I said that. I think we’re all affected by the noise. The chatter. And this year has been EXTRA NOISY. And […]
Iʼm in the fortunate position to be able to say that I love my work. Working in sales has taken me much further than I ever could have imagined back when I was an unemployed actor/hand model. Sales has given me a solid income, I work for myself, I have an awesome team and get […]

When I first moved to New York City I didn’t know anyone. The only contacts I had in my flip phone were my mom, my dad, and my older brother Jimmy. And none of them were interested in renting an apartment in New York City (believe me, I asked. Multiple times). If contacts are a […]
The first half of 2018 was INSANE. I announced my book, Sell it Like Serhant premiered, and The Wall Street Journal named my team (The Serhant Team) the #1 team in New York and the #2 team in the country. With over $838 MILLION in closed deals last year, this is my #1 piece of […]
AKA: Why Being An ‘Unemployed Employee’ Is The Greatest Job In The World. This morning I woke up at 3:53 AM. Now, I’m an early riser, but that was aggressive. But I rolled over, picked up my phone, and wrote the following: “The economics of how we live haven’t changed in the last 10 years, but how […]
There’s no magical guarantee that ensures you’ll love all your coworkers, that every new friend is going to be a lifelong confidante, and that your first date will turn into forever … or even a second date. However, you can actually tell a lot about how these situations will go by looking for a match between your […]
Essentially, everything I worked hard for in college didn’t mean anything at that point. I was crushed.
If you sell for a living like I do, you know that working in sales can be like riding the world’s craziest roller coaster. One second you’re soaring to an unimaginable new height and it’s thrilling, but then suddenly you’re falling – and fast. Those dips are frightening, and I’ve never let myself forget the major months-long […]
We’re told to think carefully. To imagine every possible obstacle and outcome before taking action, whether we’re thinking about looking for a different job, hiring a new employee or just taking a vacation. But when too much time is devoted to overthinking you’re wasting your energy and your most valuable resource. . . your time. Analysis paralysis is […]

When I was ten years old, I started a business selling firewood with my little brother. We combined our two names and called our new venture, “JackRyan Lumber.” Our options for outreach and marketing were practically non-existent, but we did the best we could. We put up a sign on the side of the road […]
I did not grow up in New York City. That meant two things when I was first starting out as a real estate broker. I got lost. A lot (I couldn’t afford a smartphone and the layout of the Village is crazy) and I didn’t know anyone. As you know a company’s Rolodex is the lifeblood of […]
I normally don’t make a New Year’s Resolution.
It’s not that I don’t believe in them. I’ve just never really made the time to stop and think. In 2018, my mission is to do just that — stop and think. To truly analyze what I do, how I do it, why I do it, and how I make people feel along the way.
This show is a passion project of mine. A literal dream come true. And it’s AMAZING and I can’t wait for you all to watch it next year.
