“Million Dollar Listing New York” star and Nestseekers broker Ryan Serhant is moving from 20 Pine Street in the Financial District to edgier West Chelsea, where the market is heating up. The reality star told The Real Deal that he would move into his new digs at Loft25 at 420 West 25th Street tomorrow, after more than two years at the Pine Street property.

“If you’re not selling on Central Park, you’re selling on Tenth Avenue right now. I follow the deals and like to live within the product I sell,” Serhant said. “If you’re a buyer looking in West Chelsea, would you buy from an agent who lives in the neighborhood or one who doesn’t? Knowledge is power in this business and there’s no better way to educate yourself on real estate than by living there.”

It’s expected that Serhant will pay $6,000 per month for the 1,239-square-foot, one-bedroom corner apartment. As The Real Deal previously reported, he previously paid $5,500 per month for the two-bedroom Rental On Pine Street.

Serhant’s pad is being designed by Niki Cheng, owner of BoConcept, he said. The condo building, a prewar former ink press, has 14-foot ceilings, lofty open floor plans, a gym and a rear garden courtyard with a reflecting pool. Serhant represented himself in the deal for the unit, while Edward Johnston and Samuel Thomas Milbank represented the owner, W. Tyler Garrow.

Matthew Modine, the actor known for his roles in “Full Metal Jacket,” and more recently in “The Dark Knight Rises,” also lives in the building. He put his one-bedroom spread at the property on the market for $2.29 million in September.

Meanwhile, Serhant is set to reprise his role on “Million Dollar Listing New York” later this year. Sources told The Real Deal he’s been spotted filming alongside Douglas Elliman’s Fredrik Eklund and newbie star Luis Ortiz of Keller Williams at locations such as 250 Bowery and in the Financial District.
