The Action: In an established Yorkville high-rise, the owners of this three-bedroom corner suite hoped to sell it with little fanfare, so they asked agent Elli Davis to find them a buyer, which she pulled from her list of clientele.

What They Got: This nearly 2,100-square-foot suite is fairly original to its construction 34 year ago with a separate eat-in kitchen, open dining and living rooms and three bedrooms, including a master with one of two bathrooms.

A laundry room with a sink, two storage lockers and parking spots provide storage for the unit, while $1,973 monthly pays for water and recreational facilities.

The Agent’s Take: “It was a very nice building built in the ’80s by Cadillac Fairview and it’s been kept up very well,” agent Elli Davis notes. “The building offers amenities, valet parking, doorman, pool and party room.”

Residents tend to stay long-term, making units highly coveted. “There are five suites per floor and all range 2,000 to 2,200 square feet and three face east and two west; all different plans, but all generous sizes,” Ms. Davis notes.

“This faced west and it was about 2,100 square feet, and it appealed to someone coming out of a home.”
