    "As a managing director of Core Group Marketing, a boutique real estate firm in Chelsea, he has a portfolio worth more than $58 million, putting him at No. 37 in The Real Deal’s listing of top brokers in New York City."


    "There’s also that other career of his: that of a one-time actor who starred in a half-dozen adult films under the nom de porn Tag Eriksson."

    No apologies, no regrets I'm sure!

    I was intrigued until I read that he's a "member of a prominent Swedish family with ties to the Prime Minister and Royal Family" of Sweden.


    So he's basically a rich guy who did porn for a while for fun or whatever, and whose parents probably encouraged him .... with monetary backing .... to do something a little bit more classy. He's a bit like Donald Trump.... acting like a big shot when the real big shot was his dad. lol.

    Its a bit more impressive when someone builds an empire from nothing. Or maybe I'd be impressed if he had a huge portfolio in a depressed city (Real-estate wise) like Miami. haha.

    Anyway, for some reason the whole bit about him going to the gym at David Barton, which he lives across from, at 5 AM.... IDK. It all just seems so self inflated and silly..... oh well. Sorry for the negativity icon_smile.gif But I'm just calling it as I see it!

    Ha! Good investigative work ZbmwM5!
    Yeah without the family background no one would have paid attention.

    This is going to sound strange here, but I envy the guy (as long as he did gay porn).

    The market is going to make a comeback soon, so he will add to his totals. And....is the market in Miami really depressed, ZbmwM5, or is it just "down?" Here in Orlando, it's on it's ass.....

    Real estate brokering - a little classier than doing porn. Love this!

    Just because his father is rich doesn't mean he was. I like how people think that every child of a millionaire must also be rolling it. Ever think that some parents make their kids work for it? Just because you have brainwashed yourself with all the pop culture nonsense doesnt mean it applies to the real world.
    It also kind of rude and disgusting of a person to try to play off another person's hard work just because he was born into a prestigious family.
