Selected for the lead role in a Universal Studios movie about the famous “Rucker Park”, directed by Malcom Lee, led Seth Franco to a tryout with the Harlem Globetrotters!  In 2003 Seth Franco became the first Caucasian Harlem Globetrotter since 1942!  Shortly after his dream of playing professional basketball came true, Seth was diagnosed with “Hip-Dysplasia”.  Seth under went multiple surgeries and had both hips replaced.  Losing his basketball career to a physical disability was the beginning of an amazing journey that would take him around the world speaking on overcoming obstacles as a inspirational speaker representing individuals with physical disabilities.  Learning to stand, walk, and run again became the heart of his message.  His talk was titled:  “STAND.WALK.RUN.”
 
Seth challenges others to stand for who you want to be in your future, walk towards your dreams one step at a time by goal setting, and run after the things in life that truly matter! 
 
Going from playing with the Harlem Globetrotters in MSG on the Knicks court to the The Hospital of Special Surgeries in NYC; Seth was humbled and found a new purpose to help others succeed in life who face physical disabilities.  Seth no longer has Hip-Dysplasia and is a honorary member of the Harlem Wizards in New York City as a role model to individuals all over the world who aim to overcome their challenges!  Owner Todd Davis nicknamed him: “MR.HIP” after overcoming double hip replacements and achieving the ability to run again! 
 
Seth has toured speaking throughout Australia, Africa, Mylasia, Israel, Europe, and throughout the United States.  He has appeared on ESPN, BET, Comedy Central, MSNBC, TNT, and more.  He has worked with the New York Knicks, The Albany Patrons, NBA, WNBA, MBDL, Salvation Army, Aid for Africa, the Department of Education, and many more.  Seth still travels from time to time for speaking engagements sharing his amazing story and helping non-profit organizations raise money for those with physical disabilities.
 
Seth is married to his best friend and the love of his life Christina and adores his daughter Jade and his three step-children Justice, Jackson, and Gia!
 
Seth is now a New York Licensed Real Estate Salesperson working for Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Blake, REALTORS with the goal of being the perfect “match-maker”; helping others find the home to fit their wants and needs!  He has a fun personality, a genuine concern for others, and a contagious excitement for finding the home to match the individual!  A sharp eye for detail, comparative market analysis, and top of the line skill and care makes Seth Franco a proud member of Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices!
