High kicks all around for Fredrik Eklund! The Million Dollar Listing New York agent and his partner John Gomes won the honor of top team at the real estate firm Douglas Elliman's annual award ceremony, the Ellies, which took place Thursday at Radio City Music Hall in New York. The duo took home the prize for the third year in a row, according to The Real Deal.
Fredrik opened up about the win on Instagram. "Dear diary, I need to tell you about last night. Tom Ford transformed me to that Swedish Clarke Kent [sic] I wrote to u about along time ago, that vision I had as a teenager. Inside Radio City Music Hall the Rockettes high-kicked onstage. I was so hungry, stomach roaring," he wrote. "It's important I note this here: I work for Elliman, the city's #1 in the number or agents, #1 in total listings and #1 in listings over $10M. Simply put: it's the biggest & the best. Combined with KnightFrank we have over 16,000 agents in 60 countries on five continents. So naturally, I felt proud receiving the award for the #1 team company-wide for the third straight year in a row." You can read his full statement, below.
And we have to say, Fredrik looked pretty fly in his Tom Ford.
He wasn't the only MDL agent who went home a winner. Million Dollar Listing Los Angeles' Josh Altman and his brother Matt landed at No. 1 in California, while Million Dollar Listing Miami's Chad Carroll and his team placed at No. 1 in Florida. "The past year was a rollercoaster of emotions," Chad wrote on Instagram. "I accomplished my goal doubling my sales and thrilled to say that again for the 4th year In a row I was named the company's #1 broker in Florida. I could not have done this without my amazing team and wife supporting me along the way @jenstonecarroll @the_carroll_group I love you guys and can't wait to see what 2016 brings!!"
