From Selling Sandwiches to House Hunting with J-Lo ‘Million Dollar Listing’ star Fredrik Eklund Speaks at Inman Connect


Santa Barbara, Calif. January 18, 2017—To a packed venue of nearly 5,000 people, Fredrik Eklund, superstar real estate agent to the stars, spoke at Inman Connect in New York City. BigSpeak Speakers Bureau was honored to facilitate Fredrik’s speaking at the event.

Inman is the largest real estate conference in the country. There Fredrik spoke about his personal journey, coming from the suburbs of Sweden, all the way to America and finding success at the top of the real estate world.

Fredrik’s story is a fascinating one. Born and raised in Sweden, Eklund came to the United States in his early 20’s after dropping out of business school. He lived in a one-room apartment with two roommates and sold paninis to tourists before earning his real estate license. During his first year in the business, he sold more than $50 million worth of property.

Today he’s a staple of New York City real estate scene. As the top broker at Douglas Elliman he has secured over $5 billion in closed sales since arriving in New York. He has sold homes to the likes of Sarah Jessica Parker, Bethenny Frankel, and Jennifer Lopez. Equally a celebrity in his own right—having starred on Bravo’s Emmy-nominated TV show Million Dollar Listing New York—Fredrik is beloved for his colorful personality and his signature high kick.

Fredrik is exclusively represented by BigSpeak for keynote presentations.
