Million Dollar Listing New York: Ryan Serhant and Steve Gold reach $8 million deal for four-bedroom


Ryan Serhant and Steve Gold teamed up to sell a four-bedroom apartment for $8 million on Thursday’s episode of Million Dollar Listing New York.

The season nine episode titled ‘Wined, Dined, Deal?’ showed Ryan, 37, and Steve, 36, hustling for commissions in a sluggish market amid the coronavirus pandemic.

Developer’s representative Dan tasked Steve with selling the $8,995,000 four-bedroom apartment in the Zaha Hadid Building before gaining a lucrative listing for a $29.5 million penthouse duplex in Hudson Yards.

Steve invited Ryan who had a buyer from California at $6.5 million to lunch in order to negotiate more and purposefully served him wine.

‘Never hurts to loosen Ryan up. I mean, the guy is pretty tightly wound,’ Steve said in a confessional.

Ryan stood firm on his offer and noted that it had been a long time since property in that area sold for more than $4,000 a foot.

He pretended to snooze as Steve praised the quality of the home by Pritzker Architecture Prize-winning architect Zaha Hadid.

‘It’s her only residential project in New York. Quality of construction there surpasses most developments in the city, if not all,’ Steve said.

‘Sorry, I just woke back up. Can someone get me coffee, please? Keep talking, Steve. I’m here for you. I can tell who you work for. I get it. I get it. It’s also on a block with a significant amount of competition. It’s also Covid, and there’s also the strip club a couple blocks down, and they’re coming here for their kids,’ Ryan countered.

Steve said that he could go as low as $8.5 million, but Ryan assured him that his buyer would walk away at that price.

Ryan in a confessional noted that Steve was still negotiating with him and figured there was room to bargain, while Steve claimed Ryan was being ‘super aggressive’ and putting him in a position of power.

Steve called Dan and shortly later received a text saying the bottom line offer was a flat $8 million.

Ryan then called his buyer in California and suggested they ‘should jump all over it’ as the price was the lowest per square foot sold in the building.

The buyer agreed and Ryan then renegotiated his commission with Steve to bring it up to $320,000 from their even $240,000 split.

‘You know what? Let’s get the deal done,’ said Steve as he agreed to the smaller commission.

‘Big sale, smaller commission, but I’m glad there’s some wine, because I am celebrating something way bigger,’ Steve said in a confessional.

‘I’ll even finish my wine for you. Cheers. To selling a four-bedroom during Covid, Steve Gold, Ryan Serhant, 8 million bucks,’ Ryan said as he took a triumphant sip.

‘You know what, Ryan? You’ve just gotten me the f***ing penthouse at 15 Hudson Yards!,’ Steve informed him.

Ryan then playfully cursed Steve as he finished his glass of wine.
