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. Conover 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. For college, Erik went to Northeastern University in Boston and studied Communication and Media, earning his bachelor’s degree in 2013.
After graduating, he left for New York in hopes of breaking into the entertainment industry. Initially he looked for acting gigs, but worked low-paying jobs to pay the bills.
The aspiring actor had various jobs before starting 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. Sometimes, 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 YouTube channel has 2.16 million subscribers.
Apart from travel and health vlogs, Erik gained fame from giving 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 series titled Luxury Listings. It’s one of the primary factors that got him the gold play button from YouTube.
After the 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
On average, real estate agents make around $49,000 per year. But after leaving Nest Seeker, Conover’s income source primarily depended on YouTube. He makes an estimated $2,000 every day, or $730,000 annually, from his advertising revenue.
He supplements his income with brand deals from companies including 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. Conover’s wealth is estimated to be around $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.
