NBC-5 executive David Doebler and his wife, Susan, have sold their 77th floor Trump Tower condo for $2.925 million after receiving an unsolicited offer to buy the three-bedroom unit.

The couple already owns another place in the Trump Tower and will relocate there, according to the Chicago Tribune.

The anonymous buyer plans to combine their unit with a neighboring unit, listing agent Chezi Rafaeli, of Coldwell Banker, told Crain’s.

The Doeblers bought the 3,100-square-foot River North condo in May 2014 for $2.8 million. The unit has four baths, double walk in closets, a den, a stone bathroom, and luxury appliances, the Tribune reported.

As luxury buyers swap and expand Trump Tower living spaces, the location has been unable to lease its retail units. Condo sales in the building have dipped by two-thirds since 2015 before President Trump began running for president.

One condo on the 53rd floor relisted today for $1.89 million after four discounts, according to a RedFin listing. [Chicago Tribune]Sarah Paynter
