Graham Stephan (born: April 21, 1990) is an American real estate agent and YouTube personality best known for videos on financial independence, saving money, investing money, and real estate investing. According to his website, he created his YouTube channel to share his "successes, failures, and experiences in the real estate industry and to support others".
His work has been recognized by Forbes and several other news outlets.
Graham Stephan was raised in Santa Monica, California. According to him, his parents ‘lived from pay check to pay check’. While attending school, he found the coursework to be pointless; his academic performance suffered as a result.
Prior to his real estate career, he had worked jobs at a marine aquarium wholesaler, a drummer in a band and a data entry job.
Stephan earned his real estate license shortly after leaving school, at the age of 18. Contrary to other realtors, Stephan focused on areas that are ignored by real estate agents. This resulted in him earning relatively less than other realtors. He would also offer to take higher quality photos of property for real estate ads for other realtors, and would get a commission from the money earned.
His strategy made him incredibly successful, much more so than his peers. According to his website, he has sold over $125 million in real estate. Due to his earnings from real estate, he became a millionaire at the age of 26. He has worked with famous clients such as Orlando Bloom and Chloe Grace Moretz. His work has been featured on the television shows Selling Sunset and Million Dollar Listing Los Angeles.
Stephan also teaches about real estate. He has ‘spoken across the United States and Canada teaching new investors how to purchase real estate’. He also made an online course called The Real Estate Agent Academy which aims to achieve the same goal.
Stephan is currently a real estate agent for The Oppenheim Group.
Stephan started his main channel at 2016. Common topics include financial independence, saving money, investing money, and real estate investing. Stephan's philosophy is to save money whenever possible.
He also started a second channel, The Graham Stephan Show, which follows a more raw format, and primarily focuses on reactions to other financial-related videos. He has reacted to YouTubers such as PewDiePie, Pokimane and Tiffany Ma.
Outside of his own YouTube, he has been featured on an episode of Spectrum from Jubilee.
Stephan lives in his duplex in Los Angeles. He owns five rental properties in Los Angeles and San Bernadino County.
Stephan is in a relationship with a woman named Savannah. The couple have a pet cat.
