'Million Dollar Listing' Star Hit Rock Bottom Before Success


According to Business Insider, "Million Dollar Listing" star Ryan Serhant hit rock bottom as an actor before he became a successful real-estate broker in New York City. He performed in off-Broadway shows and worked as a hand model before switching gears to sales. On Business Insider's podcast "This is Success," Ryan says that reality hit in 2008 after his debit card was declined. Ryan explains, "My debit card declined at Food Emporium on 59th Street trying to buy a pack of tofu, and then cried on the subway ..." The top performing NYC real estate agent said, "That was, like, that moment for the rest of my life that I wanted to run away from as hard as possible, and I had to be shameless about it." The 'Million Dollar Listing' star says that success comes from a combination of balancing fear, confidence and motivation. Ryan adds, "Because if you're just afraid all the time, you're never going to do anything. And the flip side, if you're just totally confident all the time, you're going to be an a--hole, and no one's going to ever want to work with you."

  • Million Dollar Listing: San Francisco Star Eats With Kathy Hilton...

    Although the rumors about Kathy Hilton joining the cast of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills are false, Paris and Nicky's mom will be making a scene in the upcoming episode of another Bravo series, Million Dollar Listing: San Francisco. In the episode, which airs on July 29, relator Justin Fichelson meets with a client in an attempt to convince the client his property is overpriced after receiving complaints about the price. But that plan hits a little hiccup when the client invites his good friend Kathy over and she immediately declares the property a "steal" at $4 million. Kathy, we remind you, is married to Rick Hilton, founder of Hilton & Hyland, one of the most successful luxury real estate companies in Southern California. Worse than disagreeing with Kathy, Fichelson commits the ultimate faux pas: he unknowingly steals a blueberry right off her brunch plate.
