WMAQ-Ch. 5 president and general manager David Doebler and his wife, Susan, on Thursday sold their three-bedroom, 3,102-square-foot condominium unit on the 77th floor of the Trump Tower in Chicago for $2.93 million, but the couple aren’t going far.
David Doebler joined NBC-5 in the spring of 2013 from an NBC-owned TV station in Hartford, Conn., where he had been president and general manager.
The Doeblers simultaneously listed and sold his condo unit in the Trump Tower at the same time. The reason, listing agent Chezi Rafaeli told Elite Street, was that they had received an unsolicited offer to buy his unit, and they already own another place in the Trump Tower, where they will now relocate.
“(Doebler) was approached by a buyer in the building who wanted to combine two units,” Rafaeli said. “And (Doebler) had another unit to move into in the building.”
Doebler and his wife paid $2.84 million for the condo in May 2014. The unit has four baths, hardwood floors, 10-foot floor-to-ceiling windows, two fireplaces, a kitchen with a large island and Snaidero cabinets, and a master suite with his and hers walk-in closets and a stone bathroom with dual vanities, a separate shower and a jetted tub.
