Two types of broker exist: those who love “Million Dollar Listing New York” and those who hate it.

What’s undeniable is the impact its had on those who’ve decided to air the good, the bad and the ugly — especially Nest Seekers International broker Ryan Serhant.

“I was doing one building in the Financial District and mostly little rentals,” Serhant said during a recent interview with The Real Deal’s Hiten Samtani. “I’ve got this one ticket and I’m going to scream it from the mountaintop because one day it’s going to be over. I need to milk as much of it as I can.”

To see Serhant talk more about how the show changed his business, his reality television and more, watch the video above. See the full interview here.

Produced by Jhila Farzaneh and Kerry Barger. Interview conducted by Hiten Samtani.
