A home with ties to Billionaire Ken Griffin’s ex wife has sold at a steep decrease from its last sale less than a year ago. 

The home at 2026 North Mohawk Street in Lincoln Park sold for $6.3 million. In late March the property found a buyer after it cut its listing price to $7.8 million. 

The selling price is down 19 percent from its final listing price and 37 percent decrease from its last sale price of $10 million. Despite that, it’s the fourth highest selling price of the year this far in Chicago. 

It’s unclear who the buyer is, and the public listing sites did not have a buyer’s agent listed. Emily Sachs Wong represented the seller and did not respond to a request for comment. Crain’s Chicago Business reported the sale price earlier.

Dias is the founder and CEO of New York-based investment firm Aragon Global Management, a philanthropist as well as the ex-wife of billionaire hedge funder Ken Griffin, who is also in the midst of a selloff of high-end Chicago real estate holdings after moving his company Citadel’s headquarters to Miami along with his family.

The home was listed for sale in October for $9.5 million, a drop from when it last sold for $10 million on July 12, which marked the neighborhood’s priciest deal in 2022, according to Cook County records. The 11,000-square-foot home has seven bedrooms and 11 bathrooms.

The $10 million sale was an anomaly, though. It was respectively bought and sold by limited liability companies Mohawk Partners II and Mohawk Partners. It’s unclear whether that sale was a formality as the the former couple rejigged its real estate holdings or why it was sold and then relisted so quickly for $500,000 less.

Its most recent owners are not clear from public records since the property changed hands in July, and the home was previously purchased by an LLC for $8.35 million in February 2016. The couple divorced in 2015.

Griffin, Citadel’s CEO, announced in June 2022 he was relocating the firm’s headquarters to Miami, citing Chicago’s issues with crime.
