Every day I get emails with information about various reality TV folks. Sometimes I just don’t believe it. Tonight I got an email saying that Fredrik Eklund, his husband David and their adorable children have moved to Beverly Hills. My first thought was, “There is no way this is true.” And yet, it is.
Fredrik posted this on his Instagram:
Yesterday we moved to Los Angeles. I was a bit emotional seeing the kids so excited to get on the flight. We got to the new house in Beverly Hills and ordered sushi by the pool watching the incredible sunset over the city below. Moving a family with toddlers isn’t easy, but spending more time in California while expanding the business here’s something we’ve talked about for years.
You’ll be able to follow our journey on MDLNY this season. The kids and Derek will be here full time and I’ll be going back and forth between LA, NY and even Miami overseeing the teams. I guess I do love airplanes and travel lol. We’ve grown the team to 64 people between the 3 cities. We’ve had some really big, exciting hires lately and have no plans to stop growing
Today I land running with pitches and the first VIP Top Broker event for an epic new development I’m heading up sales at in West Hollywood – I’m honored to be part of it (more on that very soon). LA has some of the world’s most exciting new development projects coming – vertical living is finally happening here.
Fredrik Eklund Will Probably Be Keeping His New York Properties
I’m already back in NY next week. But you can imagine the butterflies I have right now: this weekend we’ll take the kids to the beach for the first time, I went hiking this morning. I’m so grateful for the warm welcome here – at the same time I want to make crystal clear that my business in NY is going to expand with me very present. NY is the city that welcomed me first and gave me the platform to grow the business that allowed me to fulfill a lifelong dream of also be in LA. John and Julia my partners and extended family have their feet firmly planted in NY with the incredible team there. As you probably can tell, I’m so excited to share all of this with you.

Somehow I feel personally effected by this move. I adore his Instagram. I still want to spend fall at his Hamptons House. And, I want snow at Christmas time! I get all of this vicarious through his IG. Beverly Hills is smoggy and California is about to fall into the Pacific! Come back to New York please, Fredrik!
I imagine we will see Fredrik on MDLLA when their filming starts.
What are your thoughts Fredrik moving the family to Beverly Hills?
