Why Fredrik Eklund Thinks His Porn Background Boosted His Real Estate Career
Huffington Post - over 1 year
Fredrik Eklund has made a name for himself in the real estate world, breaking records for selling over $1 billion in property and doing it all in front of the camera for the Bravo's "Million Dollar Listing" series. But while Eklund's known in the U.S. as New York's top-selling real estate agent, back in his native land of Sweden, the reality star came to prominence for quite a different craft: porn. "I've always been open about it. I wrote a book about it in Sweden, and it's part of who I am," he told HuffPost Live On Friday. "I never try to hide it. I've always been very neutral to it. I can laugh at myself for doing that."  And though Eklund says his sordid background has been used in attempts to hurt him "on a very personal level" as well as in his career, his personal experience has been different. "Has it hurt my business? Never," he affirmed. "Going back 13 years ago when I came to New York ... [there's] 32,000 real estate agents. Did it make me more memora ...

Remember The Hand Model Who Poked The Pillsbury Dough Boy?
Business Insider - almost 5 years
Of course, you'd probably remember his cute little face over her intruding finger, but Jackie Dunphy's claim to fame as a hand model was poking the stomach of the Pillsbury Doughboy.  Hands age, however, and while she still models semi-regularly, she now works as a saleswoman at Corcoran Group in East Hampton.  Dunphy is just one of the many real estate brokers who have had really interesting first careers featured in a New York Times article by Elizabeth A. Harris. Others include Terrence Harding, a vice president at Corcoran, once named Kleptomaniac, who used to run with Junior M.A.F.I.A., the rap group of Notorious B.I.G.; Fredrik Eklund, who acted as a gay-porn star before becoming a broker at Prudential Douglas Elliman; and Haviland Morris, who now works at Halstead Property but worked for 25 years as an actress, appearing in the movie Sixteen Candles.

Sorta Celebrity Real Estate: The Creative First Acts of NYC Brokers
Curbed- New York - almost 5 years
When Fredrik Eklund, a managing director at Prudential Douglas Elliman, was cast in the reality show "Million Dollar Listing," his background as a former male porn star was part of his character bio—it was an easy attention grabber sure to gain publicity for himself and the show. But the New York broker community is filled with people drawn from different creative professions—models, actors, musicians—who sought a second career after their first ones ran their course. The NY Times found and profiled a few of these people, including Havilland Morris, who played a blonde bombshell high school student in John Hughes' "Sixteen Candles" starring Molly Ringwald; Terrence Harding, who was a member of Notorious B.I.G.'s rap group Junior M.A.F.I.A. (under the nom de rhyme Kleptomaniac); and musician/singer Laurie Lewis, who was the voice of Baxter the cat in Meow Mix commercials (Baxter said "Meow" a lot in an insistent sing-song voice). Being a broker is apparently a natural career for peop ...
