His active listings amount to $540,000,000. Originally from Stockholm, Sweden, Eklund studied at the Stockholm School of Economics before founding an Internet company and working for the investment bank SEB in Stockholm, London, Singapore and Tokyo. In addition, he is the founder of Scandinavia's most high end residential real estate brokerage with 50 employees and $1 billion in closed sales in 2014. Eklund founded the #1 top-producing team at Elliman, which has 5,000 agents in 85 offices all over the East Coast.
