Marcus Lemonis, a reality TV star whose shows include “The Renovator,’’ listed his Michigan Avenue condo for just under $5 million after an extensive makeover.

Lemonis, who is also the CEO of Camping World, is listing the home less than two years after he bought it, and after he completed a renovation of the three-bedroom, four-bathroom home, according to Crain’s.

Lemonis and his wife, Bobbi, bought the 4,800-square-foot condo in September 2020 for $3.39 million. Located in the Bloomingdales building, the condo was completely renovated over the last two years, according to the listing. It includes separate primary and guest wings, five distinct living areas, two dining spaces, and a high-end kitchen. The home is on the southeast corner of the building, and has lake views, as well as city views of Michigan Avenue and the river.

Joseph Wright of City & Field Real Estate is the listing agent for the property.
Lemonis has a series coming to HGTV called “The Renovator,” in which he will help homeowners tackle renovations. The renovation of this condo was not in connection with the show.

“I’m not selling my home because I did it for TV,” Lemonis told Crain’s. “It’s my home, where I sleep when I’m in Chicago. (It’s) filled with my personal belongings.”

He added that he has no plans to leave Chicago.

“I love Chicago and my selling this condo should in no way be seen as a departure,” he told Crain’s. “I’m looking at other properties in the city as potential replacements.”

In addition to his other gigs, Lemonis is also the CEO of Good Sam Enterprises, which is headquartered in Lincolnshire along with Camping World. He hosts reality TV show “The Profit” and he purchased the intellectual property for the game show “Let’s Make a Deal” last year, according to Variety.

The Michigan Avenue condo isn’t his only property in the Chicago area. He previously owned a Chestnut Street Condo that he sold for $3.25 million in 2018 and a pair of Lake Forest Properties that he sold for $4.65 million in 2020.
