Erik Conover is a YouTuber who shares his adventurous lifestyle with his viewers. Apart from his documented travels around the globe, Erik’s channel is known for his video series showcasing luxurious homes listed on the market. He was once a broker for Nest Seekers. Now, as a full-time content creator, Erik Conover has a net worth of $2 million.
Conover was born on October 21, 1989, in Pomona, New Jersey. He is of Caucasian descent, but not much is known about his family. Erik went to a local high school in his hometown.
For college, the young man went to Northeastern University in Boston, Massachusetts. He studied Communication and Media, earning his bachelor’s degree in 2013.
After completing higher education, he left for New York in hopes of joining the entertainment industry. He looked for acting gigs, but in order to pay for his living expenses, he had to work multiple low-paying jobs.
The aspiring actor experienced various jobs before he discovered the opportunity to start a YouTube channel. Erik started uploading vlogs about his daily life in 2016.
His account started to pop off when he shared his first travel vlog. Soon after, he focused more on filming his adventures. From time to time, he also uploads videos about his workout routines.
Perhaps his most popular exercise video is when he worked out and ate like Chris Hemsworth. He also got the chance to meet Hemsworth and train with the actor’s personal trainer. Currently, Conover’s self-titled channel has 1.95 million subscribers.
Apart from his travel and health vlogs, Erik gained fame from doing an apartment tour of his small living space in New York. This upload became one of his most-watched videos, and it caught the attention of renowned real estate broker Ryan Serhant.
Serhant gave Erik access to million-dollar properties, and it sparked the idea of Conover’s real estate promotion series titled Luxury Listings. It’s one of the primary factors that got him the gold play button from YouTube.
After his property-related videos became a hit, Erik Conover landed a job as a broker at Nest Seekers International. However, he left the commercial brokerage firm in 2021. Even so, he continues to upload videos to his Luxury Listings series.
Net Worth and Earnings
Real estate agents make around $49,000 per year. But after leaving Nest Seeker, Conover’s income source primarily depended on YouTube. He is expected to bring in $2,000 every day, or $730,000 annually, from his advertising revenue.
He supplements his income with brand endorsements from companies like Macy’s, Rado, Jack Black, Sony, Volvo, American Air, and others. It is also likely that he earns a percentage if the homes he features in his videos get sold. With this, his wealth is estimated to be $2 million.
Erik once dated a fellow YouTuber named Jessica Clements. He got into a more high-profile relationship with social media manager Hanna Coleman. Erik and Hanna got engaged, but they eventually broke up. Conover is now a single man.
