Fredrik Eklund, 44, announced his departure from “Million Dollar Listing: New York” in a lengthy social media post this week. The Swedish-born real estate broker and author of “The Sell” has been with the hit Bravo TV series since its inception, with the first episode having premiered on March 7, 2012.
The two-time Emmy nominated series started with Eklund, Michael Lorber and Ryan Serhant, who was the executive vice president and managing director of Nest Seekers International at the time.
When the headhunting for real estate agents for the TV series began in 2010, Eklund was the managing director at CORE Group Marketing.
To date, there are several franchise spin-off shows: “Million Dollar Listing: Los Angeles”, “Million Dollar Listing: Miami”, and “Million Dollar Listing: San Francisco. And Eklund, who has been with the show for nine seasons and featured on “Million Dollar Listing LA”, has decided to bow out and pursue other interests.
In a heartfelt social media post, he wrote: “After an amazing 11 years, I’ve decided it’s time for the next chapter in my life, and to leave ”Million Dollar Listing“. It’s an end of an era and a new start for me. I let Andy (Cohen), the producers and the executives know last week how grateful I am. Eternally grateful, I mean what an incredible run we had together.
