What do you think sets you apart from your peers?
Simply, following through on what I say I’ll do. You have to be the whole package. You cannot have deficiencies in your pitch, ever. We are dealing with multi-million dollar properties. You HAVE to be on your “A” game.
One of biggest mottos that I harp on with the team is ‘preparation and presentation’
Prepare the night before for a big meeting/pitch and always be prepared for pitching clients on your regular day-to-day dealings. It sounds so simple but you’d be surprised how many agents don’t do it. It’s no wonder why 86% of all agents quit within their first 6 months. No one wants to prepare and do the hard stuff.
The sale/pitch starts from the MOMENT you make eye contact with your client or say your first hello on the telephone. Make it memorable, be punctual, be prepared, greet them with a warm and sincere smile, know your elevator pitch inside and out & the rest will fall into place. Being Managing Partners of “The Serhant Team Los Angeles” I know we have the BEST product, offer the BEST service, and are a part of the BEST brand.
Do you have any advice for Buyers?
It depends if the buyer is buying a primary residence, second home, or an investment property. But at the end of the day do your research and simply don’t be afraid to pull the trigger. Too often people are making their largest decision when purchasing their home. People are often afraid of making the ‘wrong’ decision. Let me make it easy for you… pull the trigger, you will be just fine. It’s not a guarantee, but very rarely will you be on the wrong end of the stick. Real estate will continue to appreciate.
They go into the “what if this is not the right decision?” mode. Relax, live a little. How many times have we made decisions good and bad in our lives and yet things work out. They ALWAYS work out if you keep pushing forward. Sometimes a good decision turns bad & sometimes a bad decision turns good. Don’t stress and move forward. What is meant to be, will be.
What was your career prior to becoming a broker?
I’ve been an entrepreneur my while life and have FAILED my whole life. But the experience, knowledge, and connections I have made over the years while failing is allowing me to rise above and succeed on a massive level. I knew I was going to end up in real estate since I was 8 years old. But to answer the question, before I jumped two feet into the Luxury Real Estate Market in the Beverly Hills Market, I was dabbling in acting. Earning some more credits and getting into directing/producing later in life is still on my bucket list. I ABSOLUTLEY LOVE what I do and what I’m a part of.
What do you love the most about your job?
Being able to marry Real Estate and TV. I’m literally living the beginnings of my dream. Ryan Serhant has given me the opportunity to live it out. If it wasn’t for him, I wouldn’t be where I am today this early in my career. He’s a standup guy that works harder than anyone I’ve ever met in my life, that’s EXACTLY why I wanted to work with him. I don’t give many people credit for what they do, but Ryan Serhant is one of those guys that DESERVES the credit. He is the whole package and is hitting a grand slam in New York. My goal for our team is to be the Number 1 team in the Los Angeles Market within 3 years. I know we will do it and I know Nest Seekers International is going to help me with that. Very Special Thanks to our CEO, Eddie Shapiro!!! Much love to you!
Bragging Rights & biggest success stories & track record:
Personally: It’s a DREAM come true to be Ryan Serhant’s Managing Partner. He’s one of three entrepreneurs I aspired to work with (The other two being Donald J. Trump and Mark Cuban). I’ve been looking for a ‘home’ for my talents and Nest Seekers International/ The Serhant Team are giving me the opportunity to shine. Our team is growing and I’m SO proud of them. In our first 4 months together we have sold almost $15m in real estate, have amassed just over $30,000,000 in active listings, and already have one of the records for highest price per foot in Santa Monica at almost $2500/ft which is just INSANE! I’m so excited for the rest of the year and the years to come. I’m only dreaming of where we will be in the next 10, 20, 30 years. By the way, we are looking to bring on a few quality agents to the team. MUST be team players and check their ego’s at the door. Feel free to apply.
