Added John Gomes, “As Fredrik and I find ourselves now overseeing a big business, with many team members and projects across the nation, we knew that Justin and Glenn would be the right pair to support and continue our team’s domination of the New York City market. We have been grooming them for this, and we know they will excel in their new roles.”

“Fredrik and John have been wonderful mentors, and we will strive to add value wherever we can to the Eklund|Gomes Team,” added Glenn Davis.
