Celebrities are always popping in and out of Vancouver, but there was one Bravo TV star that touched down recently just for business.
In an Instagram post on Friday, March 4, reality tv star and real estate agent Fredrik Eklund from the show Million Dollar Listing made a flurry of posts from his short trip to Vancouver.
“Incredible 24 hours in beautiful Vancouver with our newest developer (Westbank) — you know I’m the biggest real estate nerd so to see all of these incredible architectural masterpieces (and massive sell-outs) is so excited to me,” he wrote in his post.

In his Instagram stories, it looked like he was touring a Westbank show room. The developer is well known in the city for adding Vancouver House to the city skyline and for the anticipated Oakridge redevelopment.
Daily Hive reached out to Westbank to learn more about his visit.
“As Westbank’s practice continues to grow globally in cities including Toronto, Seattle, San Jose, and Tokyo, we are always looking for meaningful ways to build relationships with likeminded collaborators like Fredrik and his team,” they told Daily Hive Urbanized.
“We welcomed Fredrik Eklund and Jenny Ting to our head office in Vancouver this week and had the pleasure of touring them through some of our local projects; Oakridge Park, Vancouver House, The Butterfly, and Alberni by Kengo Kuma.”
“They were blown away by Vancouver’s natural beauty and the architecture they experienced. We look forward to welcoming them back to the city as we continue to work together and to sharing more on our upcoming collaborations in the near future,” Westbank told Daily Hive Urbanized.
Eklund snapped some pics of some of the most breathtaking model buildings in the WestBank portfolio, as well as some fashion pieces like an original Andy Warhol with Versace dress.
And, he even grabbed some fries before he got on a flight home.
Since Eklund said he’s partnering with Westbank it’s possible we see more of the real estate mogul in the city moving forward. It would make sense for him to be in the city, because most listings here are million dollar listings!
