Why $19 Million Is Not Enough | Ryan Serhant Vlog # 56

  • Published: 08 March 2019
  • I know... Im just casually carrying around $19 Million. In this vlog we visit my friend Kristin Simmons and ask her to create a piece of artwork using $19 Million in last year commission checks.

    We also look back at Matthew McConaughey Oscars Speech:

    Also please check out Kristin, she is amazing!

    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. The Serhant 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 #2 team in the country, selling close to $1 billion in real estate last year. Ryan is consistently the youngest broker to make the Journal’s top ten list each year.

    Ryan stars in the popular Bravo series “Million Dollar Listing New York,” which just wrapped its seventh season. On September 18, 2018 – the week of his 10-year anniversary in real estate – he will debut his first book, Sell It Like Serhant. When pre-sales were announced, Ryan was #1 on Amazon’s daily list of “Movers and Shakers.” As star and producer, this year he also debuted his new Bravo show, "Sell It Like Serhant," started a successful vlog (www.youtube.com/ryanserhant) and launched an app (Agent Empire: NYC). There is nothing Ryan can't do. His motto communicates his professional and personal philosophy, "Expansion. Always. In all ways."

          What does this mean ? Does he not get the money now, as he created "art" out of it? I don't know anything about the banking system. Someone please tell me whether he withdrew his money or not?

                                Best video by far. I won't judge your taste in art but I will say great points in your usual light-hearted, smart ass, Ryan Reynolds-like style.

                                      There is no way there is 19 mil in cash in that envelope. I'm guessing its 19 mil of some kind of designer drug, maybe some ecstacy stamped with the Gucci logo or Versace lmao 😉

Though I will never even come close to you in terms of "success", I can remember when I was working I would buy mostly used suits and clothing (Canali, Belvest, Armani, Zegna, Brioni, Zanella, etc. etc. etc.) on eBay because I couldn't even come close to affording to buy new. But I always wanted to: 1) Work hard and have a positive attitude and outlook no matter how difficult life got, and 2) "Dress for success", and present myself in a professional manner and appearance. You do that very well. But it's a lot more difficult if/when you have health problems.
