Fredrik Eklund of ‘Million Dollar Listing NY’: 5 Fast Facts You Need to Know

Fredrik Eklund is the very animated cast-mate and a real estate genius on Million Dollar Listing New York.


1. Eklund Does Whatever It Takes to Make the Sale on Million Dollar Listing New York

Eklund is always of the walls, enthusiastic, ruthless, and extremely clever on MDLNY. This season, he will still be the same vivacious character we fell in love with, but there will be a few changes in season 3. Eklund has said that being married has made him realize what’s important in life. In addition, he wasn’t so fond of his mean moments last season and would like to turn over somewhat of a new leaf.


2. Last Season Eklund Married His Partner on the Show

Fredrik Eklund and his now husband Derek Kaplan were married on February 9, 2013 on Little Palm Island in the Florida Keys. While they were away for the nuptials, Eklund and his mate argued because Eklund was constantly on the phone doing business. With the help of his father, Eklund saw the light and realized he needed to put Kaplan first.

Derek Kaplan is an artist who works in both London and New York. His website describes his work aesthetic as:

Inspired by the beauty of nature but also everyday life, he creates abstract paintings to capture his intense emotional responses to these sources of inspiration. Through his use of color and a technique he calls ‘exorcism’—scratching and scraping through wet paint applied to canvas or paper—he tries to capture the complex nature of an emotion.


3. Eklund Is a Seriously Accomplished Real Estate Broker

Eklund absolutely knows a thing or two … or three or four about real estate. Wikipedia lists his accomplishments as:

Fredrik has closed over two billion dollars in residential real estate. In New York City Eklund became Managing Director at the New York City real estate firm CORE Group Marketing and in 2010 Managing Director at Prudential Douglas Elliman alongside his business partner John Gomes, the largest real estate brokerage on the East Coast. Fredrik is the founder of “Eklund Stockholm New York”, with three offices in Sweden.


4. He Caters to the Stars

In Eklund’s line of work, selling multi-million dollar homes, he, of course, has had his fair share of celebrity clientele. Wikipedia notes some of his star clients as:

In February 2008 he sold an apartment to Cameron Diaz., in August 2009 to John Legend and in July 2010 to Daniel Craig. In 2014 he sold an apartment to Elisabeth Geijer.


5. Life Is Never Boring When Fredrik Eklund Is Around

Fredrik Eklund never disappoints. He’s always crazy in the best way possible. Have a look at his hilarious interruption of his husband’s work day with his own rendition of “What Does The Fox Say?”
