Million Dollar Listing New York's Frederik Eklund is still on top. The realtor, who was named 2014's #1 agent in New York City by the Real Deal, just revealed that he has broken another record for his firm Douglas Elliman with more than $371 million worth of closed sales last year. Another $705 million in pending deals puts Fredrik, and his business partner John Gomes, at a jaw-dropping $1 billion of combined sales.
"It was a hell of a year on every level, so intense, so damn difficult, so beautiful, and so much work," Fredrik posted on Instagram upon being named part of the #1 real estate team nationwide. "I'm still just that kid from Sweden realizing my dreams in New York, came here with nothing, and tonight I will be celebrating a billion reasons!"
And as icing on an already decadent cake, Fredrik revealed that husband Derek surprised him by presenting his award to him onstage.
Meanwhile, Fredrik's firm itself is doing quite well, selling $18 billion dollars of real estate last year and expanding into Florida and California. In fact, their Beverly Hills office just announced a real coup: they signed on Million Dollar Listing Los Angeles power brokers Josh and Matt Altman.
Season 4 of MDLNY premieres on April 15th!
