I Didn't Steal Ryan's Clients

Luis warns Ryan not to step on him and reflects on NYC's resilience after Hurricane Sandy.

What an intense episode this one is! Just like the city of New York, this episode is fast-paced with everything happening all at once. One day you make a deal, the next you're pitching yourself to a seller, and, in the middle of all that, a hurricane hits strong and your life just stops. In moments like this you realize what you have and who you have. Nothing else matters.

At Minetta Lane, I was able to make a deal at $3,750,000. Regardless of what happened, I needed to stay emotionally unattached in order to let my clients see that even at that price point they were still getting a great deal. Walking away at that point was not an option, even if I felt like it. This house was perfect for Adam and Louise and I needed to make sure they got it before someone else did. In the end, everyone was happy and that's all I care about.

New York City real estate is a very small and competitive industry as you have seen so far. Ryan, Fredrik, and myself mostly focus on downtown Manhattan so the chances of us bumping into each other is more likely than not. This episode is a great example of that. Yes, we pitch listings on the same buildings. In this case Ryan and I pitched two separate listings at 15 Broad Street, a Philippe Starck-designed luxury condominium in the heard of the Financial District. Although our listings are quite different, they are both within similar price ranges so it's obvious that Ryan would do his open house on the same date as mine to capitalize on the clients that I brought. He pretended not knowing who I was but, he does. It's all part of his plan. I'm going to be very clear, I DO NOT STEAL OTHER PEOPLES CLIENTS. However, if you try to step on me, I'll do some damage.

When Hurricane Sandy landed in New York City, my life and everybody else's stopped completely. No power, no water, no food, no telephone, no internet, no business, no friends. Every man for himself. Thank god I have my brother with me at all times. I'm very fortunate. I'm a positive person so I tried my best to have fun during the hurricane, of course. I was happy that the only neighbor left in the building was an extremely beautiful Allison, who I had a great time with (Thank you for making my hurricane chapter a bit more interesting).  

For eight days the city of New York was paralyzed. It almost felt like it was not going to end, and, if it did, it felt as if the city was going to take forever to get back on it's feet. I did what I could to help. I bought coffee and food for the workers that were helping repairing the city. I needed to make sure they knew we all appreciate their help.

After Sandy, the market of downtown Manhattan changed. Buyers were skeptical of buying anywhere south of 14th Street and that affected my chances of selling my listing at 15 Broad. But like anything in life, you learn and move on to bigger and better.

Great episode!

Fredrik: I Wish I Deserved Luis' Friendship

Fredrik opens up about filming a Reunion, his baby plans, what he learned about Ryan, and where he stands with Luis now.

Filming a Reunion was a first for me. It was very intense, and long, with tears, disagreements, some laughter too, and an opening to understanding the other two guys. I am so happy we got to do it, to actually sit with Andy and take a good look back at this year and each other. I also got to look at myself, my relationship, and my own actions. You see, we film for so many months and then we watch it like you guys do, and I get proud, I get sad, I get happy, I have so many emotions I never voice, until the Reunion. And that felt good.

Opening up on our baby issue was tough but we are working through it. Derek is my rock and we do understand each other more now, partly because of the show.

Discussing my past with Ryan was healing. Getting to know Emilia was maybe the best part of it all for me because it makes me understand Ryan so much more, and I am interested in getting to know him more. We are so totally different, our styles couldn't be more opposite and that's OK too, actually kind of interesting. I really don't dislike him anymore and I'm starting to understand his humor more.

And then Luis. . .I wish I could deserve his friendship. I wish he wouldn't have said the things he did, and seen my sides of things. I wish I had a different way of communicating with him. I wish I wouldn't have lost his trust a long time ago. I wish I was better on apologizing. For now we will move in different directions. I will be cautious and guarded and then we will see. I do wish him the best with everything, I truly do, and it was hurtful to see him cry like that, but also beautiful I think. I have told him that after the Reunion, and that he should be proud to be able to open up like that.

When it comes to the future I am excited -- excited for my offices in Europe, my team in New York, the almost two dozen new development projects I have coming. My clients. I am even excited to have a baby, one day, soon. I'm not giving up! And then I'm excited for the future of this show. . .

Until then I want to thank all of you for watching. Doing this show has been the most difficult, but rewarding thing I have ever done. Your support and love for us three makes it worth it all. And fun. Thanks to the network for believing in us and making us look so good at what we do (and handsome!). #Weeeee

Now I'm going to celebrate with a high-kick and dinner with Derek and my family visiting from Sweden. Follow me on Instagram (@fredrikeklundny) until I see you on my TV screen again xoxoxo and thanks again.

Much love,
Fredrik your crazy loving meatball
