The third season of Bravo’s “Million Dollar Listing New York” premieres tonight at 9, but that doesn’t mean that the show’s broker stars couldn’t start celebrating early.

The festivities began on Monday night with a soirée at The Andaz Wall Street rooftop sponsored by Bravo, New York Magazine and Uber. All three brokers — Luis D. Ortiz of Douglas Elliman, Fredrik Eklund of Elliman and Ryan Serhant of Nest Seekers International — spent the evening posing for Instagram shots with fans, presenting the crowd with a teaser video of the season and munching on an array of hors d’oeuvres.

Last night, Ryan Serhant hosted his own premiere party at Lavo, a nightclub in Midtown. A total of 1,100 guests filed into the space after waiting on a two-block line, Serhant said. The event featured dancers on platforms, dance music spun in part by a 10-year-old DJ named DJ Aiden Jude, a crowd featuring Josh Altman of the Los Angeles version of “Million Dollar Listing” and journalist Michael Musto. Serhant’s co-stars were not in attendance.

“Things are bigger and better than ever,” Serhant told The Real Deal of the third season before the Monday night event. As for what viewers can expect beginning tonight, he added: “Balls-to-the-wall craziness.”

Eklund, whose wedding to artist Derek Kaplan aired in the second season, said that being married has impacted him positively — something that viewers will see in the show this season.

“I’m more balanced,” he said. “I’m happier.”

As for Ortiz, who on Monday night was battling a cold, he said the show’s fans will get to see each broker’s own motivations for staying in the business.

“Money was never my passion,” he said. What is? “A better version of myself.
