NY real estate sell tough security at Trump Tower
Two New York real estate brokers marketing a condominium in Trump Tower have used the heavy presence of U.S. Secret Service agents who protect President-elect Donald Trump as a new selling point for the luxury apartment and office building.
“The best value in the most secure building in Manhattan,” reads a description for a 1,052-square-foot (98-square-meter)Trump Tower condominium advertised for $2.1 million by the brokers with real estate firm Douglas Elliman.
About three weeks ago, the news website Politico reported, the two brokers emailed an advertisement for the unit to clients with the subject line: “Fifth Avenue Buyers Interested in Secret Service Protection?”
In a spin on the security congestion, the brokers’ email described the Secret Service agents as a “new” amenity with the 31st-floor condominium, which also comes with options for health club access and room service from “Trump Bar” several floors below, Politico said.
