Fredrik Eklund is a real estate broker with Douglas Elliman, but you might know him as the star of Bravo’s Million Dollar Listing. He's also one half of the Eklund|Gomes team along with his partner John Gomes, and together, they're known to close billions of dollars in sales across the country.
His clientele are living the ultimate high life, so you know we have to see it for ourselves!
Today, Eklund shares with us the top five homes Eklund|Gomes sold across the United States in December 2021. From a seaside dream home on Laguna Beach to a Texas mansion among the trees, take a look at what the real estate world star picked!
1200 Rockgate Road / Last Asking: $15,900,000
Looking for a place with some serious space? This equestrian estate is a short drive from the Dallas airport, but still boasts 72 acres of wooded land with ponds and a custom barn. For the humans? The new owners will enjoy four bedrooms, four bathrooms, a media room, three-car garage and more.
"Isn’t this property absolutely insane?" Eklund says. "When I found out that Kelsey Bond and Nadia Black sold this property fast—and for a groundbreaking price for this part of Texas—I wasn’t even shocked. Why? Because when do you ever see this type of property on the market? From the incredible interiors of the home to the rare (and immaculately) designed equestrian facilities, this property spared no expense to make sure this was a true Texan dream."
53 West 53rd Street 58B / Last Asking: $14,500,000
"This is one of my absolute favorite buildings in Midtown," Eklund says. "Take a look at the views from this apartment. No matter where you look, you can always find sweeping views of the incredible city that built my real estate career. Pretty magical!"
415 Greenwich Street 7A / Last Asking: $4,850,000
Step through the 25-foot entrange gallery and be amazed by this three-bedroom, three-bathroom jewel of the city. An open kitchen greets guests, while the oversized primary suite features a walk-in-closet, spa-inspired bathroom and heated floors for the new owners.
"Tribeca living has never been this adorable and perfectly located," Eklund says. "This residence has everything a New York buyer needs: custom built office, open kitchen and floor plan, custom walk-in closet with extra storage, and a bathroom decked out with the finest finishes. I am very jealous of the person who gets to move into this home!"
53 Lincoln Street / Last Asking: $4,595,000
Prive beachfront property is just one of the perks at this .52-acre oasis. The swimming pool is heated for year-round fun, and the main floor fireplace is the perfect spot to get cozy during the holidays.
"The rain in Los Angeles is making this Sag Harbor lifestyle look very appealing right now," Eklund says. "Very proud of Marcy Braun and Kyle Rosko for bringing this gorgeous sale to the finish line. This home is quintessential Sag Harbor living!"
102 McKnight Drive / Last Asking: $11,849,000
Standing atop Crown point bluff, this 7,800-square-foot beauty offers year-round sunset views, a private cove, mid-century design and oversized terraces.
"For this property, listing agents Brad Bakenbush and Ariana Gaffoglio perfectly named it 'the house with the built in ocean,'" Eklund says. "The original iron staircase that leads residents down to the private beach is actually from Wrigley Field. Can you believe that? There is also a touch of California celebrity to this property, as it was formerly owned by Hollywood icons Douglas Fairbanks and Mary Pickford."
