Concierge Service Considered the Top Amenity for Chicago Condo Owners

Most notably, concierge service stands at the top of the list when you ask Chicago condo owners about their preferences. And when it comes to anything you need, your concierge’s help is just a phone call away.

While New York City may be close to 1,000 miles away, there’s no difference when it comes to the type of service and attention that Chicago condo dwellers demand. Just ask Jenene Ronick, founder of Luxury Attache. The lifestyle management company supplies concierge service to close to 30 Manhattan buildings, and according to Ronick, no request is too outlandish. She adds, “Sometimes it’s finding the perfect gift for your wife’s 40th birthday. Sometimes it’s finding a rare bottle of wine or an autographed first copy of a book.”

Chicago condo owners want the same kinds of amenities and services that you would find in a five-star hotel. Whether it’s scoring a reservation at the city’s trendiest restaurants or valet parking, these kinds of perks are a must-have when buyers are browsing the bevy of luxury buildings around town.

One luxury broker said, “The global market has forced a lot of people to travel extensively around the world, and by doing so, they are being exposed to really some exquisite hotel living. When they come home, they do not want a lesser experience.”

Concierges, though, are at-the-ready for tenants in these buildings, doing everything from making sure their favorite flowers are in the unit when they arrive back from a trip to securing room service from the hot new restaurant down the block. It’s no longer about having top-of-the-line kitchen equipment; it’s about having a concierge who can have the five-star meal delivered directly to your door.

There are so many reasons to consider becoming a Chicago condo owner. If you would like more information about living an urban lifestyle in downtown Chicago, please contact me. I’d love to show you around this truly remarkable city!
