It’s official: Fredrik Eklund is living in Los Angeles. The Million Dollar Listing New York broker announced this week that he, along with husband Derek and his kids, have moved to Beverly Hills. But that doesn’t mean he’s saying goodbye to his New York City stomping grounds!
The plan is for Derek and their children to live L.A., and in the meantime, Fredrik will be… on an airplane 24/7! “The kids and Derek will be here full time and I’ll be going back and forth between LA, NY and even Miami overseeing the teams,” Fredrik wrote on Instagram. “I guess I do love airplanes and travel lol. We’ve grown the team to 64 people between the 3 cities. We’ve had some really big, exciting hires lately and have no plans to stop growing.”
While acknowledging that his new focus is going to be on the L.A. real estate market — "LA has some of the world’s most exciting new development projects coming — vertical living is finally happening here,” he wrote — Fredrik is quick to clarify New York City still has his heart.
“I’m already back in NY next week,” he explained. “I want to make crystal clear that my business in NY is going to expand with me very present. NY is the city that welcomed me first and gave me the platform to grow the business that allowed me to fulfill a lifelong dream of also be in LA. John and Julia my partners and extended family have their feet firmly planted in NY with the incredible team there. As you probably can tell, I’m so excited to share all of this with you.”
Sounds like Fredrik has one exciting and BUSY year ahead of him.
