Hogan notes that Coldwell Banker has already seen a noticeable increase in property showing requests within the first few days of release on the company’s Chicago website. He says local affluent buyers are showing the strongest interest—especially those from the North Shore or the suburbs who want an apartment as a second or third home. However, several international buyers—including those from the United Kingdom and Europe—are also intrigued. “All of them are incredibly loyal to The Ritz-Carlton brand,” noted Hogan.
