Million Dollar Listing New York star Ryan Serhant greeted people in front of a 1905 Brooklyn house with soaring columns, which he put on the market the next day. “We got married on Thursday, and then we just stayed there for that next week to decompress. The wedding was insanely stressful,” mentioned Serhant, who just got back from his honeymoon with his new wife Emilia Bechrakis in Corfu, Greece. “There were a few years lost on my life for sure. Even down to which way people should walk when they get off the bus at the reception, it was tears and drama. Everyone ended up in the pool. Dude, it was so hot.”
