Fredrik Eklund, the energetic, high-kicking, top broker at Douglas Elliman has secured over three billion dollars in closed residential sales. Rated as the #1 agent in New York City by The Real Deal in 2014, he set record sales in 28 buildings in Manhattan last year alone and is often spotted showing apartments to top name celebrities, including Sarah Jessica Parker and Jennifer Lopez. 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.
Eklund is married to artist Derek Kaplan, and they have Mousey and Fritzy together. Fredrik is known for being part "shark" in business and part "softie" at home with his puppies and family.
