Inside Ryan Serhant’s ‘Million Dollar Listing’

Ryan Serhant

It should come as no surprise that Ryan Serhant, a real estate broker to the stars and cast member of Bravo’s “Million Dollar Listing New York” (Wednesdays at 10 p.m. on Bravo) has a pad that would make any one — New Yorker or not — envious. We stopped by his Pine Street, N.Y., apartment to get a good look for ourselves. When he’s not hanging out in his two-bedroom pad, he can take advantage of the building’s many amenities: a sauna, billiards room, Turkish hamam and roof deck, to name a few — “It’s one of the most full-service buildings in the city,” he tells us.


1. “The first thing I wanted when people walked in was something there that would just kind of grab people,” Serhant says of his entryway shark painting by Tom Booth. “I like art and I have a lot of pieces, so I wanted a lot of hallway space. It takes you like five seconds to actually get to the apartment because you’re just walking through the hallway.”


2. “The kitchens were designed to be very New York kitchens, so they’re kind of out of the way, which is perfect for me because I never use it. It disappears into the wall — it’s almost like an art piece where everything hides.” Under the sink are a washer, dryer and dishwasher.


3. A portrait of Serhant hangs in the master bathroom. “Alex Garant painted that of me when I was doing ‘As the World Turns’ and I thought it would be really cool so I framed it. And now everyone comes in here like, ‘you’re a d—bag, you have pictures of yourself?’”


4. “The bathrooms” — which feature all imported stone — “are very pretty,” he says. “You have the rain shower above which is killer to take a shower in, [but] it makes it a little bit harder when you’re taking a shower with two people.”


5. “I wanted a powerful bedroom, something comfortable. I like everything very, very clean, to look like it was there for a reason — even books that are on windowsills. I wanted a powerful headboard. Every art piece was picked specifically for a reason so that it gives off a certain image. I work in real estate, so I show this apartment to a lot of people, and a lot of people who are spending a lot of money on an apartment want to work with a real estate broker who cares about where he lives.”


6. “Because I have people over all the time and I entertain, I didn’t put the TV in here,” Serhant says of the main space. “I put it in the second bedroom” — used as a den — “because that’s kind of like the hangout place.”


7. “It’s very, very simple,” Serhant says of his design aesthetic. “I hate walking into apartments with a lot of stuff. My apartment has like nothing in it and that’s kind of the way I like it.”


8. “I grew up in a house with a lot of animal heads and antlers, but I would never do that in my own apartment, so I got a silver one.”
