NEW YORK, Nov. 11, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- SiriusXM announced today the launch of Buying and Selling, a new one-hour show in which Fredrik Eklund, star of Bravo's Million Dollar Listing New York, will examine the art of buying and selling—almost anything.
Buying and Selling teams Fredrik with his brother, co-host Sigge Eklund, a comedian, author and host of one of the most popular podcasts in Sweden, for this limited-run series on SiriusXM's Stars channel beginning November 20. The Eklund brothers will be joined by a celebrity guest each week for a lively conversation about current deals and successes with buying and selling—in pop-culture, real estate and even their personal lives. Sharing their common obsession with what makes something sellable in today's world, they will discuss topics ranging from successful selling of a personal brand, a penthouse apartment or the art of selling a story.
"I am beyond excited to host a new show with my brother Sigge on SiriusXM," said Fredrik Eklund. "This is the perfect platform for us to connect more with fans and each other—sharing our different perspectives and best practices for successful selling of brands."
"Fredrik has created a highly successful brand name out of his career in selling real estate," said Scott Greenstein, SiriusXM's President and Chief Content Officer. "With his new show on SiriusXM, listeners can expect to get a taste of his infectious personality, blended with with his passion for sales, marketing, and building trusting relationships in business and in life. Along with his brother Sigge, a pop-culture whiz, listeners can expect to hear lots of anecdotal stories, laughs and cha-chings."
Eklund stars in Million Dollar Listing New York, Bravo's Emmy-nominated television series that takes a closer look at top real estate agents and their intertwining lives as they fight for their share of the market in New York City. One of the world's most successful real estate agents who regularly sets sales records, Eklund is a licensed broker at Douglas Elliman. Originally from Stockholm, Sweden, Eklund was named the #1 real estate agent in New York City by The Real Deal magazine in 2014 and 2015, and is the author of The Sell: The Secrets of Selling Anything to Anyone, an international best-seller published by Avery.
