John Gomes knows good homes. As co-founder of Douglas Elliman’s star-studded Eklund| Gomes team, he’s earned a reputation as one of the most well-known and loved realtors in the luxury market.
Whether you’re looking for more space in New York City, a backyard by the beach in Los Angeles or a bigger pool in Miami, Gomes and his team will find what you need and then some.
Today, he shares with us some of the most stunning NYC homes he helped clients turn into a home in January of 2022.
From sky-high penthouses with sweeping views to historical-homes with lots of charm, here’s how his clients are living the ultimate high life.

Boasting 7 bedrooms, 8.5 bathrooms and a lot of nearly three acres, this custom-built waterfront home is the definition of ocean-side luxury. Sweeping panoramic views make sunset and sunrise the star of the show, and with 8,300 square feet of living space, there's plenty of room for entertaining.
“One of the reasons I believe we made No. 1 Mega Team at Douglas Elliman is because of our incredible expansion into multiple markets last year,” Gomes says. “One of these markets was reaching outside of NYC and into other New York markets like Sag Harbor. Eklund|Gomes agents Kyle Rosko and Marcy Braun represented this home that truly proves why the Sag Harbor life is so appealing”

More of a city mouse? This 3-bedroom, 3.5-bathroom mixes urban elegance with the comfort of home. The new owners can stretch out with 11-foot ceilings and floor-to-ceiling windows in the spacious living room.
“This apartment is exactly what you dream of when moving to New York.” Gomes says. “Luxe amenities, incredible views from Midtown, and an apartment built with the best materials. Eklund|Gomes represented this deal from the listing-side and was a slam dunk once taken up to the gorgeous view.”

Taking another trip to the Hampton, this recently-renovated traditional home sits on 1.6 acres and offers five bedrooms, 11 bathrooms and 7,500 square feet of living space.
“Our Hamptons agents are doing an incredible job as the Spring and Summer season is fast approaching,” Gomes says. “This home will make this Eklund|Gomes client is extremely happy this summer and will be an investment they are happy they made now. This market, especially in that area, is only becoming more desirable.”

Down in sunny south Florida, the team sold a gorgeous home right on the intracoastal. With 5 bedrooms, 7 bathrooms and 5,968 square feet of living space, the new owners will have to remind themselves to take a step outside and make use of their boat—which is conveniently docked just outside, of course.
“This buyer wanted 3 things: views of the sea, a spot for a boat, and a sleek designed place to call home,” Gomes says. “I think E|G’s Marc Brandt found all of that and then some. In a bustling market that Miami is experiencing now, we quickly had to jump on a gorgeous home in such a prime location.”

Ocean front views and sky-high living? This unit in the south tower of Auberge in Fort Lauderdale really has it all. The building blends condo living with resort-style amenities, and the fun of downtown is just steps away.
“This unit is the best of Florida displayed in less than 3,500 square feet,” Gomes says. “The Ocean views and the plentiful light combine to make for a truly striking experience when you enter. Marc Brandt did an incredible job leading the charge for his seller positioning this Ocean front home that also has easy access to the action downtown.”
