Publisher's Summary

A lively and practical guide to sell anything and up your business game from one of the top realtors in the world and costar of Bravo's Million Dollar Listing: New York and Sell It Like Serhant.

"Ryan is not only charming and hilarious, he could sell milk to a cow. This book is going to be very helpful and humorous to a lot of people looking to up their business game." (Andy Cohen, host of Watch What Happens Live... and New York Times best-selling author of Superficial)

Ryan Serhant was a shy, jobless hand model when he entered the real estate business in 2008 at a time the country was on the verge of economic collapse. Just nine years later, he has emerged as one of the top realtors in the world and an authority on the art of selling. Whether you are selling a brownstone or a hot tub, golf balls or life insurance, Serhant shares the secrets behind how to close more deals than anyone else, expand your business, and keep clients coming back to you. 

Sell It Like Serhant is a smart, at times hilarious, and always essential playbook to build confidence, generate results, and sell just about anything. You'll find tips on:

  • The seven stages of selling
  • Getting FKD: how to be a time manager, not a time stealer
  • Negotiating like a boss
  • "The one who...": everyone needs a hook
  • Pulling the indecisive client forward
  • And much more!

This audiobook is the blueprint for how to go from sales scrub to sales machine. Serhant provides useful lessons, lively stories, and examples that illustrate how anyone can employ his principles to increase profits and achieve success. Your measure of a good day will no longer depend on one deal or one client.  

A good salesperson never closes a deal and wonders, "What now?" The next deal is already happening. Serhant shares practical guidance on how to juggle multiple deals at once and close all of them every. Single. Time.  

Whatever your business or expertise, Sell It Like Serhant will make anyone a master at sales.

Ready, set, go!

Fantastic!

Aspiring salesperson or not, Sell It Like Serhant is an unbelievable read. The information Ryan is so kind to share applies not only to the life of someone who works in sales, but also to anyone with a hunger for more success. Would recommend to anyone looking to improve their mindset in their chase towards a successful career and a happy life.

Its more for real Estate people

Its a decent read for seeing other peoples perspective.. but applying to to everything out there does not really work. As the book goes you it really gears towards real estate style of selling.. of course you could take a bit of it here and there and apply it to others but thats 20% out of 80% of the content

Too shallow

I like Ryan and think he's a good guy. But this book was too shallow in useful information. There was so much detail of the properties he sold clients he dealt with which really are not that unique. But when it comes to the details of his business and how he runs it, the systems Etc. All that was lacking. this may be good for brand new Realtors who have no experience

Stop scrolling and buy it

Most well rounded sales book I've read, acknowledges all styles of sales but advises on structuring for success.

Funny, humble and entertaining

It’s an enjoyable listen. His frank and honest storytelling offers valuable insight into triumphing over adversity and mistakes. His humble funny manner makes it very easy to relate to.
Reminds me of Tim Ferris The 4 hour work week.

entertaining and fun, but not that useful unless

great presentation, high energy, and inspiring. but not all that useful as an actual giude to how to manage the sales process, unless you are specifically selling overpriced real estate to neurotic New Yorkers.

I should be embarrassed...

I have never finished reading a book from cover to cover, nor have I ever finished listening to an audio book. But I owe it to Ryan to put myself out there and let everyone know, I just finished listening to "Sell it Like Serhant" in 2 days! Ryan's humor is hilarious to me and I could relate to him on many levels. This book inspired me to get myself motivated again and gave me some great tips on initiating things in order to fill my pipeline. I truly felt like I was sitting in a room with my best friend chatting about how to keep myself motivated and understanding that deals will fall apart, but that doesn't mean I have to. Thank you thank you thank you Ryan Serhant. I hope to meet you face to face so I can tell you my success story that was inspired by you! Because I WILL have that story to tell.

Thank you Ryan!

Ryan the Lion. I absolutely enjoyed listening to your fun stories, timeline of your growth, tips for developing, and the hilarious references. Your tips are empowering for more than sales. I hope you get another chance to “dance with toddlers!” I appreciate you and thanks for your inspiration.

Best Sales Book I’ve Ever Read

I am a top performing Realtor and Broker Owner of a Boutique real estate company in Massachusetts. I am in constant pursuit of maximizing my potential and the potential of my team. I read many books as a result and this is by far the most motivating, uplifting and well written sales book I’ve had the pleasure to read. I enjoyed every single chapter. I listened on audible and Ryan was also funny and engaging. I have since purchased this book for everyone on our team. I play clips to get people motivated and fired up at the start of our weekly meetings and we are all now enjoying the book as a company. Thank you for sharing you knowledge with us. You have reminded us here how blessed we are to be in sales- the most exciting of all professions and you have encouraged everyone in our company to live their best lives by always striving to maximize their potential. What an incredible message to share with the world. Time to write another now!

Really Good Book With Practical Steps

I found Ryan through YouTube because I don't watch tv. I already enjoyed his fun personality through the vlog. So after watching his interview with Grant Cardone I figured I would pick up the book.

The audio was well done and Ryan did very well using tonality and inflection to really drive certain points home.

The actual content was largely what you find in other business books. But the other 10% is gold and I will be going back over those chapters. If you're a business person or in sales (at any seniority level) you must get this book.

Informative and Entertaining in true Serhant style!

If you are a Serhant fan you will love the delivery of the audible version of his book. If you don’t know much about him you will come to like his enthusiasm, hard work ethic and humor!

It’s Informative, educational and highly entertaining. He describes his beginnings as a struggling actor to the success he is today from his disciplines and aha moments to his extreme discipline and work ethic in life, work and leadership.

Buy the book or the audible version which I preferred... you won’t be disappointed and have some laughs will listening

Serhant if you read this, well done, thanks for sharing your life, knowledge and story so openly you are the consummate Professional, goof ball, PR and Marketing dynamo all rolled up in one!
Wish you and much continued success Sir!

Ready...Set...Go!

Epic book! So good I listened to it in one day. There are so many good takeaways but I think the biggest one for me is that one needs to take action and not be afraid of failure. Meeting 3 new people a day will be my new mission. Thank you Ryan for writing this amazing book!

Good if you are new in Selling

Ryan is funny, precise and always interesting to listen to. You will consume this audio book in a few days.

This won't be the most precise or mindblowing book on sales you will read, especially if you are in bmB2B sales. But Ryan's story remind you of the invaluable basics so you remember them.
Good to have.
