Co-founded by Fredrik Eklund and John Gomes, the prestigious team is among the highest achieving in the country. Peters will be tapped as their Executive Manager of Brooklyn Sales, leading resales and working with many of the new developments that are rapidly enhancing the borough. The Brooklyn power broker brings a wealth of experience and an impressive six, well-seasoned agents with her to The Eklund|Gomes Team including Allison Dubuisson, Justin McMahon, Daniel Fried, Jennyrose Halupka, Monica Breese and Vanessa Rodriguez, who will be serving as Peter’s operations manager.
“Our presence in Brooklyn has grown exponentially over the past few years and during this time, Jessica has made a significant and positive impression on both John and myself,” said Fredrik Eklund. “Her deep level of expertise in the Brooklyn market and her commitment to her work and clients, combined with her successful track-record and staggering sales volume, convinced us that she was the best person for the job.”
In her 12 years with Douglas Elliman Brooklyn, Peters has led sales for 71 new development projects and has achieved approximately $850 million in sales volume. When combined, Peters and The Eklund|Gomes Team are collectively responsible for over $1 billion in closed deals in Brooklyn to date.
“The Eklund|Gomes Team is an absolute powerhouse and this is an incredible opportunity for me,” said Jessica Peters. “Fredrik and John recognize the dynamism of Brooklyn and I’m honored that they have entrusted me to grow their team’s footprint here as we work with some of the most exciting real estate in New York City.”
The Eklund|Gomes Team has secured over $10 billion in closed residential sales and the sell out of over 50 new developments during their successful decade together. They are currently leading the exclusive sales for River Park, one of the largest new development projects in Brooklyn history, consisting of 7 buildings that are being strategically rolled out in three phases.
“We are so thrilled to welcome Jessica to our team and to watch our Brooklyn expansion thrive under her leadership,” said John Gomes. “She is at the top of her game in Brooklyn, with unsurpassed knowledge, experience and instincts. As our business in the borough continues to boom with both resales and new development, we couldn’t think of a stronger person to lead our team.”
With the addition of Peter’s, along with their expansion into Miami and California, The Eklund|Gomes Team brings their total agent count to 35, nearly tripling in size over the course of a year. As they continue to expand their footprint in locations where they see future growth potential, the team is also growing in number at their brand new 10,000sq.ft. flagship office in the Flatiron District, where they are currently recruiting new agents.
